The Simpsons has been running for more than two decades, making it an influential part of popular culture. From its roots as a one-minute short in The Tracey Ullman Show, it has become the most celebrated animated sitcom ever created for the television. The showâ€™s success stems from subtle to obvious commentaries on politics, media, and religion. Well-known personalities have also graced the show, which may have triggered the growing self-referential tendencies of people (especially by geeks) regarding popular culture.
If you havenâ€™t figured it out yet, similar shows like South Park, Futurama, and Family Guy were influenced by the Simpsons. It came upon different T.V. networks that prime time animated shows suddenly had an audience because of the Simpsons, prompting them to create and gamble with their own similar animated series. Since the 90s, the Simpsons have defined a generation of angst-y little kids (who are probably professionals by now) and have spawned a ton of different fan made artwork and memorabilia. An interesting set of fan-made work Iâ€™ve found from a DeviantArt-ist, Claudia-R, features the whole cast of the Simpsons in different movie posters. Classics like Clockwork Orange, Breakfast at Tiffanyâ€™s and recent movies like Sucker Punch and The Dark Knight has been recreated using the characters of the show.
If only the producers of the Simpsons considered at least one of these posters and create a full-length parody out of it, like Family Guyâ€™s gutsy take on the beloved first three movies of the Star Wars franchise, itâ€™d be a great lol for all of us. So what do you think, is it yay or nay?
