Behind the Scenes in 1992

This must’ve been a promo FOX did for affiliates or something, but it is pure nostalgia gold:

Fun notes:

0:25 – Groening talking about his drawing style being based on drawing without looking at what you’re doing so the teacher can’t tell you aren’t paying attention.  Heh.

0:45 – A very young Mike Reiss noting that they spend two or three times as much time on a script as even good sitcoms.  Methinks that number has come down in recent years.

1:10 – Hi, Al, bitchin’ jacket.

1:15 – An all too brief clip from the table read of “Kamp Krusty”.

1:30 – Castellaneta discussing the evolution of Homer’s voice.

2:00 – Why is Kavner dressed like she’s in the Witness Relocation Program?

2:20 – Check out the stylish hat on Yeardley Smith.

2:35 – I think Shearer and Brooks may have been in some kind of epic beard contest because they both look like lumberjacks.

2:40 – Azaria: “Whatever Dan and Harry don’t take, I kinda get.”

3:25 – so Klasky-Csupo HQ was . . . humble.

3:30 – Steve Moore shows some storyboards for “Bart the Murderer”.

4:00 – Was Archer and David Silverman talking animation.

4:30 – Alf Clausen talking about music with some recording footage from what sounds like Bart and Homer’s bonding montage in “Treehouse of Horror II”.

4:45 – Simon talking about how it’s fun to work on something you actually enjoy.

Then things end on a promo for that week’s episode of In Living Color.  Aww, baby FOX was so cute.

    1992, what a time to be alive. I loved seeing the layout drawing of Bart pulling faces, those days are long gone now. I think they use the same animation producing robot as Family Guy these days.

    On KCPQ they would sometimes show this after a movie ended if the movie wasn’t quite long enough to fill the time slot.

    Given how shy Julie Kavner is known to be, I’m not surprised she dresses like Henry Hill.
