Quick question: Who’s your favorite Disney character? Snow White? Elsa? Lightning McQueen? Well, hands down ours is Bart Simpson. Yep, Disney now owns the Simpsons and it never gets old declaring the yellow-skinned family as our favorite Disney characters!
And while the town of Springfield may be under the Disney umbrella now, it doesn’t mean things were so warm and fuzzy before. While we never got to see The Simpsons first family vacation to Disney World, Marge decided to capture the memories in a photo album which she pulled out for the episode “Mobile Homer”. The world of Pixar may come off as loving family films, but The Simpsons has no problem pointing out that the company will do anything they can to take out their competition. In the episode “Angry Dad: The Movie”, Bart creates a movie that goes up against Disney and Pixar’s movie at an awards show, except on the show they are referred to as “Mixar”. Over the years, The Simpsons has taken many shots at the Disney theme park industry and one of the earliest examples may come from the season six episode “Itchy & Scratchy Land”. In the episode, the Simpsons go on a family vacation to the theme park where they experience price gouging, rip-offs, and a whole lot of creepy animatronics. So let’s hop back in time before Disney owned practically everything and Homer wasn’t afraid to make a dig at the House of Mouse -- there have been numerous Disney insults in the whole 30 seasons of The Simpsons and we’ve got the best for you now!
