They've been out of ideas for the past 6 years. I think this movie should be their farewell to the world.

Episodes, maybe, seasons, no way. It seems to have become cool to rag on the show.

I think it is more an issue of being so ripped off by others.

They have always had episodes that did not appeal to one person, but appealed to others.

The recent gay marriage one was a classic, with Homer presiding over the ceremony and starting it with "Queerly Beloved" and ending with " The news is not all good, they have written their own vows!"

So you are saying it is just as good as a whole as it was 10 years ago? It's become cool to rag on it because everyone knows it's true.

No one is really saying it's bad (well, some are), but it has declined from its heyday.

No, but it is still some of the best TV out there. It just can't stay fresh when we are so familiar with it. Same with South Park.

Family Guy is popular now because it was gone for so long. It will come and go again and the Simpsons will probably still be in new episodes.

Does anyone have this footage saved on their PC, or know of another location as to where I could find it.

I ask this because FOX had YouTube remove the movies for breach of copyright laws.

Unfortunately, they're going to have to find a new voice for Marge here in Germany (for the translated version): Elisabeth Volkmann, the actress that did the voiceover for her, was found dead at the age of 68 years yesterday in Munich.

I dont believe so, the guy from The Tracey Ulman show, Dan Castelanetta (sp?), has always done the voice AFAIK, but it has changed over time. I saw an interview where he talked about that. Homer has definatly gotten dumber over the years, and rightly so. How many blows to the head has he sustained?

Phil Hartmans death was a big blow though, he cracked me up.

I may be wrong now, but I dont think so.

Wow didn't know that. But to be fair both characters were wearing thin on material.

So they have been removed now then, or is someone else doing their voices now?

Not sure really, but there have been a lot of characters that have died in the show like Flanders wife Maude. There was an episode where they named them all, but I cant remember the list. Hartmans characters may be on that list.

More than likely so. I believe his death was around the year 1997, and I can't really think of any episodes where either of his two characters stared in after that date. Therefore, they most likely retired the characters in respect of Phil Hartman himself.

Regarding the killing of Maude and other characters, it's an attempt to keep the show fresh. The same characters every episode would be really reptitive and boring. South Park is another example of this, look at how many times the 4 primary kids have changed, as well as other characters such as Officer barbrady, the school bus driver, etc. being killed off.

Wasn't she killed to free the woman doing her voice of her contract?

I think so, and maybe that is why her death was so bizarre, getting hit by a flying t-shirt while going for hot dogs at a sporting event.

No, Homer's voice did change, but it was a conscious decision by Dan Castellaneta. He realized one day he was basically doing a bad Walter Matthau impression. It evolved slowly in the "jerk-ass" Homer voice we hear today.

Quoting Thom@s (Reply 16):

Speculation is that she basically quit because she wasn't getting paid a lot for her work. She demanded more money, knowing she wouldn't get it, and they killed Maude with a t-shirt. Some consider Maude's death is the point where the show "Jumped the Shark"

No... 'Maude Flanders' is voiced by Maggie Roswell who still does other current voices.....Helen Lovejoy, Miss Hoover.....

So the woman who did Maude's voice is still working with the series?

This seems to be true, according to imdb.com. The website lists her for doing voices of Maude and other characters during this past year. She might not have done any Maude voices recently, despite it being listed, but I know there have been a couple of "flashback" episodes since the death of Maude.

EDIT: Just noticed this now on the "trivia" part of the website...

Quote:
Left "The Simpsons" (1989) cast in spring 1999 after the show's tenth season when 20th Century Fox refused her requested raise increase from the $2000 she earned the past three seasons until her departure.Before her departure, Roswell had been flying into LA from her Denver home on her own money to record her lines.

A few months ago I went to a presentation by Mike Reiss, one of the main Simpsons writers...It reawakened my deep love of the Simpsons that had been dormant for the past few years! He was REALLY funny and it was cool to hear some personal stories of his from over the years of writing episodes.

One of the highlights was...
