Artist Re-Imagines “The Simpsons” as 1950s Live-Action Show With the Help of AI

It appears that Artificial Intelligence is rapidly getting better at everything. At least, that is what recent AI projects are showing us. For example, artist demonflyingfox from Berlin, Germany, recently used the help of AI to re-imagine cult animated sitcom The Simpsons as 1950s live-action show.

demonflyingfox shared the trailer for his version of The Simpsons on YouTube, explaining that they wanted to capture the Super Panavision ’70 style. The term is used to describe movies and shows captured by the Panavision 70 mm spherical optics, which were popular from the 1950s until the 1980s.

The trailer quickly captured the attention of internet users and received close to one million views. Viewers are introduced to live-action versions of The Simpsons characters, who look strikingly similar to their animated counterparts. This includes the Simpsons family—Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie—as well as Mr. Burns, Ned Flanders, Moe, Millhouse, and many others.

If you like this reimagining of The Simpsons as a 1950s live-action show, you will be happy to know that demonflyingfox has produced plenty of other similar content. Their YouTube channel also has trailers for South Park, SpongeBob Squarepants, and The Family Guy, among other animated shows, and all of them are done in the same style.
