Video of New Simpsons Opening Credits

The New Simpsons Opening: Love It or Leave It?

The Simpsons went HD on Sunday, and with the change came new opening credits for the first time in years. The story is basically the same, though we now know the exact value of Maggie at the supermarket checkout and get to see a few new Springfield characters (actually tons of them, if you freeze-frame at the one-minute mark). Sunday's version was especially long, featuring the family chasing their couch through space, but as far as I know, the couch part of the ending will be changing every week as usual. The rest of the credits should stay this way for a while, though, so let me know: Do you like the new version, or do you wish they'd never changed at all?

Love how they didn't change all of it but just enough to make it fresh and cool!

A little long. I hope you're right about them shortening the couch part when they change it next week

The Simpsons opening is sacred! I can't believe they would change it. You can't just mess with tradition like that.

Yeah, i agree with LuminousFae. I liked it up until the couch bit. It just kept going and going and I was sick of the gag half way through. I hope the other couch gags are short and sweet. This new Simpsons in HD reminds me of the movie (the look of it).

I loved the fact that they never changed the opening credit, EXCEPT that they DID change them every single episode (chalkboard, couch.) It was clever and something a little different.

i've never paid THAT much attention through the years, but i think that sometimes it's ok to have a little change after years and years.
