Title sequence[edit]

There's only one slight omission in the article. The title sequence was changed slightly at the debut of the 2nd season (1990-1991), and it's that sequence which has been in use until this first HD episode. If we really want to nit-pick, there was only one episode to actually air in 1989, "Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire", which had virtually no title sequence at all. The first episode to air with a real sequence was already in 1990, "Bart the Genius".

  • Is the change you're talking about that time they took out the 'bus stop' part? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 169.229.109.115 (talk) 21:53, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

real news?[edit]

Honestly this can't be considered real news. I'm glad of course The Simpsons is in high definition (hoping Family Guy follows in the same direction!) but really, I don't get how this can be group in the same news caliber as Thousands fleeing after a volcano erupts in Colombia or a japanese tanker MV Chemstar Venus freed by Somali pirates —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.99.50.238 (talk) 22:03, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

It's not "headline" news, but it is real, the kind of entertainment news you might find later in the news broadcast. Google news shows a number of news outlets carrying the story. GeorgeII (talk) 22:37, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
