I like how this 10-minute commercial will wind up longer, more heartfelt and boast more layered plot threads than any of this year's Treehouse of Horror segments... and that it still made all of the fashionable clothing look ludicrously hideous while adorning our beloved characters.10 Minute Sketch the Simpsons did for Balenciaga:
Floating timelines mean floating birthdays. At least they kept this new date relatively close to the last one. We probably won't be so lucky when they elect to change it to something else.Marge's birthday is CANONICALLY October 1, same day as Randy Quaid, I absolutely refuse to respect this complete and utter disregard for continuity
Simpsorama broke with form and realigned Bart's birthday to February 23rd. I don't believe it has been course-corrected back to April since, either.Speaking of birthdays, doesn't Bart have two different ones? I think there was April 1st and somewhere in February?
You're right, it's Silverman. Desite quiting from episodes work, he always does all the short 'in-last-moment' shorts.Does anyone know who directed it ? The animation seems a bit more fluid than usual in the series, and there are some interesting framing. My guess is on Silverman, like the Disney+ shorts ?
To expand on your earlier post a bit, the "bare bones canon" in my mind is that homer and marge saw A movie (doesn't matter which one) in late may and had bart the following februaryCan't really apply The Empire Strikes Back guideline in a world with a floating timeline. As of right now, Bart was born in 2011. Ditto for Lisa being born during the 1984 Summer Olympics.
Of course, the one reality where you COULD have both things be true would be a world where Springfield itself was stuck in temporal stasis from the outside world. Histories and futures would course correct to "make sense" with whatever present day the characters we know and love presently inhabit but Bart and Lisa would've actually been born in the 1980s and just no longer realize it.
I'm glad Smithers came out in dress. He was happy and proud of who he really is.
