(why is there NOT a Simpsons logo?)

This is really cool! (thesun.co.uk)

No, there's NOT gonna be a live action episode or movie. Over 'across the pond', SKY ONE paid for a live action copy of the opening 'credits' for The Simpsons, and it is to be shown as a special treat for it's 17th season.

Damn, why didn't WE think of it first, WE created the damn show and now the brits are one upping us with the coolest thing having to do with the show in (at least...) three seasons.

Well, anyway, watch and enjoy. They got it PERFECT!

Having Marge on the UK side of the car is just wrong. Also, Bart stops writing on the chalkboard too soon. And there should be more of the supporting characters visible, although there are a few when Bart is skateboarding (Love the Bleeding Gums!).

Other than that, certainly cute, but not all that special. Still, maybe they should use the couch sequence as a couch gag on the real show.

Cool.
They should use that over here--or at least stick it on a DVD.
Maybe a live-action version of the show is what it needs after this many seasons. There is just nothing left for these characters to do anymore.

Especially since Homer is on the US side of the car. What's up with that?

Still, I thought it was awesome.

The video's nice, but couldn't they have fact-checked it just a little bit? Marg? Little baby Lisa driving the car?

Impressive skateboarding from "Bart".

I'm not sure I understand what you mean, Gugs...Lisa was on her bicycle. She cut off Homer just as he was getting out of his car.

I'd love to see the animated and live versions side by side. Is there any site (such as YouTube) that has an opening animated montage hosted?

I didn't mean the video; I meant the article. The video was great.
