New Simpsons Blog Dedicated to Those Longer Shots

“You will notice, my new best friend, that we are pretty casual around here.” – Scorpio
“Yes, sir. I will notice that.” – Homer Simpson

A few weeks ago I got an email from a new Simpsons blogger who’s got a novel idea for looking at the show. You know those long shots the show uses to scroll wider or taller than a single scene allows? He stitches them together far better than I’ve ever managed:

This is less encouraging.

You can see more at By the Big Cooling Tower. (It’s on Tumblr, so if you are too, drop him one of those notes or however it is Tumblr works.) Some other excellent example include, all the wonderful things Mr. Burns has:

If you ask me, they should’ve finalized things with the “Suckers” version.

Narcissus himself.

And a street scene from Little Pwagmattasquarmsettport:

America’s scrod basket!

Each one comes with a description of how the scene is set up and some details that you might not have noticed otherwise. It’s a novel and insightful way to look at the show, and I highly recommend it. Thanks, Steven, and keep it up!

    I’m a sucker for good animation layouts, and classic Simpsons had them in spades, so this is a lot of fun. Thanks for the heads up!

    I once tried to stitch together a wide shot of all the trampoline victims from “Bart’s Inner Child” but the angles changed too much for me to composite the damn thing. If only it had been a smooth tracking shot…
