Animation: Simpsons Pixels

I recently came across a whole bunch of these cool pixelated Simpsons characters on Tumblr and after clicking through several different pages I found Simpsons Pixels. Not sure how I completely missed this brilliant animation from way back in February (it’s unforgivable really).

All the looping animated gifs are characters from Ivan Dixon and Paul Robertson’s amazing pixelated Simpsons animation – watch it below! There’s so many great references.

    These dudes are super talented. The Simpsons staff loved the pixel couch gag so much, they bought it off them and included it in a real episode.

    • i didn’t realise that – that’s so awesome!
