SIMPSONS PIXELS & THE BARTMAN

Really good animation, and one of the best opening title couch gags I’ve seen since 2009 — Pixel tribute to the hit series “The Simpsons“:

Directed and animated by Paul Robertson (probertson.tumblr.com) and Ivan Dixon (pug-of-war.tumblr.com). Music by Jeremy Dower (www.jeremydower.com).

Neat. This reminded me of an early 90s classic that used to play in the mornings when I was a kid, a time when video games were fresh and either pixely or polygony, and which, for some reason, is incredibly hard to find a good copy of anywhere today (must be a copyright thing): Bart Simpson’s “Do The Bartman[directed by Brad Bird]

The Bartman

“Do the Bartman” is a pop rap song from the 1990 Simpsons album The Simpsons Sing the Blues. It was performed by The Simpsons cast member Nancy Cartwright and was released as a promotional single from the album on November 20, 1990. The song was written and produced by legendary recording artist Michael Jackson, and Bryan Loren.

“If you can do the Bart, you’re bad like Michael Jackson.”

No one knows why, but for some reason, Milhouse’s hair ISN’T blue!

i'm freaking out

This Simpsons fan and YouTuber, Jailon Thomas, made a video game sprite animation tribute to Bartman that I feel deserves some sort of mention on the internet:

“This is the first sprite animation I made 3 years ago and I wanted to see what it would be like to have a “do the Bart man” music video video game style…where Bart goes through various video game universes, trying to get video game characters to do the bartman; it also features earl from toejam and earl. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.”
