“The Simpsons” Behind-the-Scenes Comic-Con Facts


Georgie Peluse is the reason the Simpsons are yellow!

Due to the coronavirus, this year’s Comic-Con was live – great for me! – and I practically attended The simpsons @ Home sign from, you know, the comforts of my own home.

The panel, moderated by Yeardly Smith – the voice of Lisa Simpson – consisted of Simpsons writers, animators and directors and they shared fun facts about the acclaimed series!


So sit back and enjoy the content!


The episodes of “Treehouse of Horror” are the most difficult to execute because there are different backgrounds (sets for the animation), different costumes, etc.


Not to mention that each episode of “Treehouse of Horror” is made up of three mini-episodes, rather than a full episode.


The first “Treehouse of Horror” was split between three directors (since the episode was in three parts), but now one director takes on each episode.


It is considered a badge of honor to do a whole “Treehouse of Horror” on your own.

Maybe he was the inspiration behind Lisa’s mastery with the saxophone? Or was she the inspiration for him? Chicken and egg, folks.

Jon Lovitz, Kelsey Grammer, Anne Hathaway, Cate Blanchett, Sacha Baron Cohen, Don Cheadle and Jack Black were some of the crew’s favorites in terms of guest stars.


Don Cheadle brought MUSIC for his episode.


Jack Black must have learned the Korean versions of “Goldfinger” and “What’s New Pussycat” for his episode.


the James Bond Estate did not license their use of “Goldfinger” so they had to switch to “What’s New Pussycat”.


In the 1950s there were comics called EC Comics, and Matt Groening – the creator – used them as inspiration to launch “Treehouse of Horror.”


Previous episodes of “Treehouse of Horror” used to have a message from Marge warning the viewer that this was going to be a scary episode.


In fact, the scariest thing that happened was that Maggie was carrying a knife. But hey, it was the 90s!


It was the unused end of the Christmas special.


Who, if you are a fan of The simpsons, is painfully on the mark.


Finally, Georgie Peluse – an animator and colorist for the series – came up with the idea to make the Simpsons yellow, and Matt Groening said, “Yeah, okay. »


The reason she thought about this was because Bart, Lisa, and Maggie didn’t have hair, so they had to think of a skin color that would translate to hair color as well.
