I saw this real-life version of The Simpsons opening sequence this week. It’s from 2006, apparently. Where have I been?
This prompted me to think what else I know about The Simpsons opening sequence. I cross-referenced that with facts from the Internet, and came up with this.
Interesting things about The Simpsons opening sequence
The opening sequence hasn’t changed much and it hasn’t changed often in 23 years. Season two (1990) and season 20 (2009), that’s it.
There’s been the odd guest sequence, and obviously the chalkboard and couch gags are different every episode, but you get more change buying a pint for a fiver in London than you do from Matt Groening’s opening credits.
And that’s it, that’s all the interesting stuff I can think or care to tell you about The Simpsons opening sequence. There’s a Wikipedia entry if you’re thirsty for trivia, but it’s boring.
Here, watch this instead. It’s “Do the Bartman”, and it will make you feel old!
