The Simpsons redesigns their intro in HD to coincide with their update to a new widescreen format. Most of the main conventions for the intro were kept the same (i.e. bart and the chalkboard, power plant, couch gag, etc.), but many parts of the story have at least something new added/changed.
The debut episode in HD, entitled Take My Life, Please, will air Sunday, February 15th, 2009.
On first glance, we spotted at least 10 new additions including the “Mr. Sparkle” and “Tomacco” products in the Grocery scene, Maggie’s unibrowed nemesis (Baby Gerald), and other new characters.
