Watch The Simpsons' Minecraft Intro Here

Tonight's episode of The Simpsons — Luca$, featuring Zach Galifianakis — aired with this silly Minecraft-themed intro. It's cute, if not exactly the best thing they have ever done. At least Moe makes for a good Creeper.

    The Simpsons feel so out of touch. I guess after 24 years they had to run out of gas, but I just find them to be incredibly boring.

      Reminds me of those old magic schoolbus games from the 90's, with all the "whacky random stuff" happening in the background and during scene transitions.

    This screams to me of "Look guys! We're still relevant! We're down with you young people out there! See? We referenced Minecraft! How awesome is that?!"

    Let's face it - the Simpsons hasn't been funny or clever since the mid-1990s. In fact, the irony is that for every additional season they make, the show averages out to be worse and worse overall. Right now we have about 8 seasons of pure gold, followed by 3 or 4 seasons of meh, followed by 13 seasons of shite.

      This intro actually contains two of the symptoms of the disease that plagues New Simpsons. Firstly, a lack of confidence in the visual gags which leads to them being "enhanced" by some inane dialogue. When Creeper Moe walks in, it's not enough for him to just look weird and pause and explode. He's got to throw in a "Yeah, how you doin'" because that's a Moe thing to say. It's not funny, it's just filler, and it happens all the time in the show now. Bart can't just show the family an humorously embarrassing magazine cover, he's got to do an "Ay caramba" during the close-up.

      Secondly, it adds nothing for the creeper to even be Moe at all. The show feels the need to cram in the secondary characters at every possible opportunity, whether there's a good reason for them to be there or not. Quick, the scene's not funny enough, how do we punch it up? Have Dr. Frink show up and say something in his wacky voice! Is there any reason for him to be in the Simpsons' backyard right now? No? Who cares?

        Personally? I would've made the Creeper the Snake character...

        'ssssssssssSsssssay guys..... mmmmmmmmByyyyyye!'

    Who knows what adventures they'll have between now and the time the show becomes unprofitable?

    looks more like blocky simpsons than minecraft, actually there is little resemblance to minecraft at all

    Could of hired people to actually recreate the opening credits in actual minecraft, its not like they are short of cash.

      I was thinking the exact same thing. How is this minecraft. An enthusiastic child could have made a map and some skins in minecraft and would have done a better job.
