Someone Turned The ‘Simpsons’ Intro Into Pixel Art, And The Result Is Tremendous

The Simpsons has a long history of elaborate opening gags, both official and unofficial. But, oddly, they’ve never taken on the pixel art trend. So some talented pixel artists beat them to it.

What’s most impressive here is how smooth the animation from Paul Robertson and Ivan Dixon is. Quite a few animators will use the whole excuse of “it’s pixel art” to phone it in, but this is fully animated and thought out as a pixel design. Especially the ending, which gets… odd.

We kinda hope the series brings in Robertson and Dixon to do an actual couch gag. No matter what they do, it can’t be more out of left field than Banksy’s take.
