Simpsons Pixel video: the retro Couch Gag

It's time go get retro-futuristic with The Simpsons as a gang of creators pixelate the Couch Gag. This is a "pixel tribute" to The Simpsons as directed and animated by Paul Robertson and Ivan Dixon. Music here is a midi-style update of the Simpsons theme by Jeremy Dower. Prepare yourself for a bunch of odd-flavored craziness - memories of the past mixed with game-style graphics making one intro we dearly wish was at the front of a whole episode. Alas, it is 3rd-party excellence.

Simpsons FXNOW app to stream all 530 episodes

Now it's time to discuss the app side of things.

Simpsons headed to Cable in TV’s biggest off-network deal ever

Up until now, The Simpsons had been running on broadcast syndication - Fox, fo be exact - the same place it started (as its own show) back in 1993. Because a cartoon comedy show such as the Simpsons was relatively unheard of at the time, Fox was able to secure a contract that meant they were able to hold complete exclusivity with the show just so long as they were still airing it on their station.
