The most shocking thing about this is how much character the animation has compared to how it is post-2K's.

Cherry Pop Culture - 2012-01-29

There's something about off-kilter, off-model animation. You just don't get that with anything done in Flash.

Xenocide - 2012-01-29

The way the characters' mouths distort and distend when they speak has this weird charm to it which probably was a big factor of The Simpsons' success back in the early days. Nothing else on TV looked remotely like it.

I'd never thought how Homer's pupils would speed blur when they moved in the early episodes would be a detail that I'd miss.

TheSupafly - 2012-01-30

According to the commentary they totally can still animate like this today, they just purposely phased out this type of animation by the 3rd or 4th season to make it less distracting or something. I guess there was one director that kept trying to sneak in the backwards mouths a couple times a season just to challenge this.

Now the animation is done by, and for, robots.

The first season of the Simpsons was my favorite. I love the original animation style.

The drawings in this commercial also look a lot more like Matt Groening's drawings.

Huh, AND it's neato!

They spent all their money on the Simpsons license so they had to fire the guy who thought up slogans.

VoilaIntruder - 2012-01-29

Is it that character with the giant chin on the far right? Underbite girl in the middle there? Why are they yellow?

Innocent Bystander - 2012-01-29

My parents refuse to watch the Simpsons because they're "the yellow family". Seriously. That's an insurmountable obstacle for them.

Redford - 2012-01-29

I almost didn't notice those terrifying mutant children in the background. Good work.

cognitivedissonance - 2012-01-29

My great grandmother at the time, in her late 90s, told me "I wouldn't watch those Simpsons, too much sass!"

CJH - 2012-01-29

girl on the left looks like gutsman

Jet Bin Fever - 2012-01-30

Her bottom half was a tank tread in the next commercial.

Hailey2006 - 2012-07-30

The animation was originally done by Klaskey-Csupo, they also did Rugrats, Real Monsters, Duckman, Wild Thronberries, Rocket Power, and a couple others I can't think of!

My friends and I used to quote this commercial to each other verbatim during recess in elementary school. Though I thought "die of malnutrition, dude:" was "dye a mound of trition, dude!" whatever the fuck that meant.

Scrotum H. Vainglorious - 2012-01-30

Did your school ban the Bart Simpson "underachiever and proud of it" t-shirt?

joelkazoo - 2012-01-30

No, but when a bunch of bootleg T-Shirts flooded the market featuring Bart with a bong, they decided to ban all Simpsons shirts outright. They also banned the "Big Johnson" shirts, as well.

Jet Bin Fever - 2012-01-30

Big Johnson. Whoa, that gave me a time warp.

poorwill - 2012-01-29

I just had my first Butterfinger the other day. It was neato.

charmlessman - 2012-01-30

No, they referenced his name there. It was Mon Frere,

Chalkdust - 2012-02-20

I'm impressed the voice is the same

Quad9Damage - 2013-11-29

How many Thetans are trapped in the average Butterfinger?
