As time passes your favorite cartoon characters will eventually evolve their look. Case in point – The Simpsons. The Simpsons debuted on The Tracy Ullman show in 1987 on Fox. Looking back at them now they were so crudely drawn, paler, misshapen and pretty much forgettable. Well that obviously changed. Its hard to believe but the Simpsons will be entering its 26th season! Where does time go?
As part of The Simpsons’ annual “Treehouse of Horror” Halloween special this year, today’s Simpsons will meet yesterday’s Simpsons (featured on The Tracy Ullman Show)….and then all hell will break loose as they massacre each other!
“We’ve implied that they were murdered and buried under the house, so this is expanding that thought,” producer Al Jean told EW about the Ullman Simpsons. “If people want a real Halloween bloodbath, they get it.” The old school Simpsons had made tongue-in-cheek cameos on the show throughout the years, but this is the first time the two versions of the same family will interact at length.
The halloween special will air Oct. 19, EW reports that the annual Halloween episode contains a segment that parodies The Others, in which the Simpsons are haunted by another ghostly family living in the house.
This will not be the only cross over, as the Simpsons will meet another unlikely family: The Griffin’s from Family Guy.
