Remember how these iconic Sesame Street characters came to life as grumpy old men at Dragon*Con? The entire family of The Simpsons have been there too in the real world, replicating shot for shot faithfully, the now-famous opening TV sequence of the cartoon series. This was a promo spot for UK TV channel Sky One [...]
There’s Oprah’s Book Club. And then there’s the other lesser-known Book Club by Lisa Simpson, who is arguably one of the most well-read cartoon characters on primetime TV. Spoiler: she reads the classics (The Brothers Karamazov), non-fiction (Copyright Law) and brainy magazines (The Atlantic).
Attention Skyrim fans: this nerd mashup is available for only a few more hours at Tee Fury. The design is inspired by my love of the most amazing game in recent history and one of the greatest animated comedy shows of all time.
Ladies and gentlemen, behold: The Simpsons: Tapped Out has just been released by EA Games and your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to rebuild their hometown of Springfield after Homer caused a meltdown at the nuclear power plant. Yes! Save the town, win donuts, be the hero, and perhaps win the hearts (and/or mind) or Patti and Selma. Genius.
By a show of hands, who didn’t love Ren & Stimpy and, by proxy, the twisted and sick sense of humour of its creator, John Kricfalusi?

Back in 1995, when The Simpsons was funny, Groundskeeper Willie called the French ‘Cheese-eating surrender monkeys’. Based on real events, The Army of Crime shows the inhabitants of France to be the opposite. This group of underground terrorists are from all over Europe but based in France and are single-minded in their determination to kill Germans.
The iconic Simpsons intro has been reworked in so many creative ways over the years, from a real life version to a clever advertisement for Estonian TV (for real!). But this version, made from Lego pieces, takes the cake. What’s even more impressive is that the video was created by a thirteen year old.
First there was the real rife spoof of the classic Simpsons intro, now comes a real life version of the iconic Simpsons homestead. Situated in Henderson, Nevada, the house is a shrine to everything off-beat, off-colour, off-the-planet cartoon-y.
Yup, some people just have way too much time on their hands. But thank god they do. This real life version of the always captivating Simpsons intro is about as clever — and accurate — as it gets.
Jim Mahfood, aka FOOD One, is a prolific neo-contemporary illustrator and painter whose work shows up in all kinds of odd places including his own 40 Oz Comics, Spiderman books for Marvel, Kevin Smith’s Clerks Comics, a mural on the Sarah Silverman Show, a brand new Simpsons collaboration with graff artist Kofie, on apparel for boutique brand King Duce, and other hotbeds of contemporary youth culture. A good night of drinkin’ and drawin’ for the accomplished comic artist includes live painting on naked girls in his local LA hotspots and around the country. I’ve painted with FOOD One, and when I say prolific I mean this guy’s got a lightning fast quickdraw with spraypaint, markers, and brushes like you wouldn’t believe.
