The Simpsons HD Opening

Website Updates — Posted 14 Feb, 2009 by Scott

Tomorrow Fox will begin airing Simpsons episodes in HD and widescreen for the first time. Because of the switchover, a brand new opening credits has been animated! Fox has posted a video of it on YouTube, which you can see below.

The Simpsons in HD
Bart writes on the blackboard in the new High Definition opening sequence.

The sequence follows the same format as the old one, with some different characters appearing. Notable changes include Kearney and Jimbo sawing off the head of Jebediah Springfield, Grampa in the car with Marge and Maggie, and Homer getting HIT by Marge's car instead of being chased into the living room. He makes a cartoony outline on the garage wall.
