    This is what makes Simpsons so funny

    just looking at the drawings and animation style, you see how the simpsons is genius

    take this frame for instance. it is a realistic perspective of the elementary school teacher, drawing a stark contrast to previous more-cheery portrayals. she is a middle-aged-woman who has had 'had it' with life and the kids she teaches -- and she shows it. it is funny to see a cartoon show it in this subtle way.

    ralph... the oblivious idiot of the school is the only one who appears happy while watching a documentary on sand.

    most of all, the dullness of the animation magnifies the comedy.

    now, do you know why the NEW simpsons is not funny?

    take a look at the animation style. it's all so bright and cheery... too happy. a direct opposite of the aforementioned.

    it's all tongue
    -in-cheek now. look at ms hoover as happy as can be. but why would she be so happy reading instyle? i don't buy it for a second.

    and look at ralph, the oblivious idiot, seemingly NOT happy. but why? he's moronic he SHOULD be happy. the simpsons, now, just doesn't get it.

    I grew up on the show. As a kid, it was fucking huge. I remember when "Do the Bartman" swept the nation and parents groups were up in arms because Bart talked back to Homer and told him to "Eat my shorts."

    I don't remember what season it was, but I remember watching the episode where the family went to New York City and I instantly knew that the magic was gone. I couldn't put my finger on exactly what changed, but I just knew it was over for me.

    The show turned into a parody of itself and became this liberal, hipster suckfest. It was trying to be relevant and critique pop culture, but even the newest episodes felt immediately dated. It suddenly had a very Canadian feel to it.

    I tried watching again a few years back and there was an episode trying to bash Apple and the fake company name they used was, "Mapple." Lisa bought a Mapple MyPod. That's some brilliant writing right there. :facepalm:

    In the upper right illustration this critic means to call Bart a 'loser sidekick', but instead calls Bart a ''looser sidekick". I like when a critic showcases his own stupidity...

    And since when is Marge a 'bisexual'?

    The Simpsons artwork went from all hand drawn to computer generated. That's the difference in the artwork over the years.

    By far, still the funniest show on TV for the past 20 + years...

    I don't watch the show anymore but I was a huge fan in the 90s when the show was at it's peak.

    THere were few things funnier than the treehouse of horror episodes.

    What people don't seem to remember today, especially the younger ones, is how groundbreaking and wichedly satirical the Simpsons were when they first came out. Especially in the Pre-Soutpark, pre-family guy era.

    I watched early on. It's not bad. It doesn't enrage me like most unfunny shows do. It is intelligent. The humor isn't bad at all. It's just not funny enough to make me want to tune in. I'm sure I would hate the newer version though based on the above information about it.

    Bart is older now. Maybe his bunghole is looser.

    That's quite a find for someone who hasn't watched the show for a long time. If she made out with GaGa that would make Marge bisexual...
