Bart Simpson: Do the Bartman (1990 Video)
Although the world’s most famous two-dimensional, yellow-skinned dysfunctional family (and you’d be surprised at how many there are) comprises five members, two have inarguably ascended beyond the television show to become cultural icons themselves. One is boorish but loveable dad Homer and the other is the brattish Bart ‘Don’t have a cow, man’/’Ay Carumba’/’Eat My Shorts’ Simpson.
Just like his father, Bart Simpson is one of the most recognisable faces across the world, whether animated or not, and It is sometimes forgotten now, after 25 years of the show, that Bart was once the main character of the series before the whole family was given a fair crack at the whip. So just why is Bart so popular? As The Simpsons has always been a show for all-ages, while Homer is a hero to put-upon parents everywhere, perhaps the secret of Bart’s popularity
Bird has had tremendous success with The House of Mouse, specifically Pixar, as he wrote and directed The Incredibles (2004) and Ratatouille (2007). He had previous success with animation, directing The Iron Giant (1999) and working extensively on The Simpsons (he even directed the video to Do The Bartman). Last year, he made his live action debut with the sensational Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, which grossed nearly $700 million worldwide.
Very little is known of 1952, we’re not even sure if it will be live action of animated. But rumour has it this will be a big deal for Disney. Let us hope it will avoid the problems of their last sci-fi epic John Carter. But with Bird at the helm, we don’t think they have much to worry about.
