Das neue Simpsons-Intro (UPDATE)

(Youtube Direktsimpsons, via Jeriko)

Im Zuge der Umstellung auf HDTV wurde das Intro der Simpsons optisch aufgesext, die Figuren sind nun schattiert wie schon in den Folgen selbst, es kommen nun alle Nebenfiguren vor (auf das Panorama kurz vor Ende achten, also: noch vor dem langen Couch-Gag der ungefähr die Hälfte obigen Videos einnimmt, aber eben nach den ganzen sonstigen Schlüsselszenen). Ich bin kein Serien-konservativer Mensch und deshalb sage ich: Well done, kann man so machen.

[update] Der Guardian hat einen Artikel:

Bart still skateboards home and Lisa still plays that memorable saxophone solo, but for much of the credits it is all change – from the moment a rather ominous three-eyed black crow flaps across the screen.

Ralph Wiggum ends up wearing the head of the statue of Jebediah Springfield, Otto swallows the uranium bar that Homer swats off the back of his shirt after leaving work, and Grandpa is now a passenger as Marge (and Maggie) drive home.

At the end of the title sequence the Simpsons also now have a flat screen TV – but it doesn't stay attached to the wall for long.


Die Änderungen laut Wikipedia:

The sequence is similar to the previous one, but features many visual changes that take advantage of the wider format. The changes include the addition of characters created since the show's inception and references to previous episodes. The sequence opens as usual with movement through cumulus clouds, while a 3-eyed crow flies by. The camera zooms past several town landmarks and into the town square where Jimbo and Kearney saw off the head of the statue of Jebediah Springfield, which falls onto Ralph Wiggum's head.
