Even though main has changed the "Running to the couch" scene will always be different.

Usually with such changes, I wonder, why mess with something that`s perfectly fine to begin with. Especially if that certain something`s iconic to pop culture history. But, in this case, they did a pretty good job. All hail the Simpsons!

I like it! I thought the register read out may have been a phone number but, all I get is a busy signal;(243)264-8652.

the till reads 243.26 and after maggie 486.52 (which is twice as much).

I agree with Hansbo, but I did say it prior..oh well.

also, the maggie sequence used to be longer, she used to get scanned and thrown in with all the other groceries, but apparently sackers used to go so fast 15-20 years ago that bags would frequently get confused, thats the sigh of relief from Marge when Maggie pops out of the bag, but of course they cut that.

The true simpson`s fan could name not only the difference in this opening, but the differences in the original and the shortened version that many are used to (when first going through the O you start with bart not zoomed out view of Springfield).

wow, thats a lot of characters. and yeah I`m not sure if maggie is cheap or expensive. I don`t know if that is gonna happen every time. I suppose if it was the first time they show that version they`ll make it shorter once they get to the couch next time.

may i just point out that the till has NEVER said NRA4EVER i the episodes, its actually said 458.57 or something similar because that was the average amount spent on a baby (just like maggie) in one month, according to a survey. I guess Matt Groening must`ve thought something about it to put it in there

It`s only the couch gag which is too long, and that changes every week. Without it, it`s probably only a couple of seconds longer.

I don`t know what everyone`s bitching about. Seeing this made me smile. I don`t laugh as much at the Simpsons as I used to, but I still watch it and enjoy it. I freaking grew up with it. How is something supposed to stay exactly the same for 20+ years? Have you?

Anyway, there`s always Futurama, which got the axe before it got crappy, so go and enjoy that if you hate the Simpsons so much.

(Or do as I do and enjoy both!)

This, except on the entire series. Combined with the changing jokes, this is what made the simpsons unpopular.

I still find it funny, but it`s changed into a new show.

after watching, they didn`t change too much but enough that it bothers me. especially Marge hitting Homer in the garage...whats wrong with him running from the car instead of making her hit him? it was only funny to run into Homer at the beginning of the Halloween episodes...

also, they changed what the register reads when Maggie is scanned "NRA4EVR". the biggest change that bugs me is the show is supposed to resolve around the simpsons but by introducing all those characters into the opening sequence you are taking away from the main characters...lame

I think this sequence would`ve been fine for the movie, but why change the opening to the TV show? its called being considered classic. take all this time to make new couch gags. its been how long since there was a new couch gag, it has been repeating ones forever.

Never ceases to amaze how people resist change.

Different doesn`t equal bad you know.

If you liked the Simpsons last year I fail to see how a different opening and some flashy graphics would make a huge difference. Ultimately isn`t it the content that you`re watching for? The writers, producers, etc haven`t changed...

Of course, you would know that already if you didn`t react with instant fear to something that was different or new.

Sheeple bug me.

I can`t hear it anymore! Evrybodys whining! Uhhh the Simpsons arent what they used to be. Uh the Simpsons are tooo modern! STFU! When Groening would have had the modern technologies he would have made the simpsons like they are today back in `89! The Simpsons developed over the years to sth that characterises a whole generation! If anybody doesnt like the simpsons anymore just because it has a new opener, so what, dont watch it anymore but stop annoying people that like the simpsons with your whining! THANKS!

"well *somebody* takes cartoons to seriously."

If you don`t want to be confronted with people who take cartoons too far, you should go outside and play some sports instead of frequenting the comments section of a website virtually designed to cater to those of us who derive utility from superior social commentary.

I was really sad when I saw this. I hate the way the animation looks. Stiff and shiny. Souless. No love. Much like the show is now. The title sequence was the last thing that was left of the Simpsons. Oh well.

I haven`t watched a new episode in ages anyway. So I don`t care.

if they were going to mess with it they should have really made a new one instead of forcably adding in characters and the callbacks to previous episodes.

Plus the animation makes me cry. It looks lazy while the old one has time put into it and you can tell.

That was absolutely terrible. The animation looks extremely forced.
Comedy shouldn`t be simply visuals based on lighthearted little jokes, but instead it should be complex, intellectual, and something that one must ponder about in order to grasp the humor.

R.I.P. The Simpsons being funny, 1989 - 2002.

Honestly, I`m kinda pissed they made a new one. As the series slowly degraded from the humor it once had, at least I could be reminded of the glory days of the show from the hand drawn opening and that at least somethign stayed the same from episode 1. Now... well it feels like it`s lost its charm I guess =/
