Kinda cool, kinda creepy.

Article in the Sun Online

MAKERS of the hit cartoon The Simpsons have a filmed the show's opening titles using real actors.

In the hit viral going around the world we get to see what Bart, Homer, Marg, Lisa and Maggie would look like if they were humans.

And you can be among the first to watch the hilarious titles, filmed over 18 months in Britain, by clicking one of the links below.

The clip re-enacts the title sequence to a tee beginning with the camera zooming into a schoolroom to see a blonde Bart scribbling lines on the blackboard.

Simpson’s maker Matt Groening has approved the human version of the show’s opening credits to promote the brand new series.

Sky One will broadcast the promo as its viewers gear up for the The Simpson's 17th season which begins on March 20.

An insider said: "We're really excited about it.

"We used regular actors, not so much for their resemblance - as you can't copy a bunch of yellow characters - but becuase you can easily identify with them."

A balding actor plays Homer as he leaves work dropping some nuclear waste out of the window on the way home.

While a baby girl copies the scene where Maggie appears to be driving Marg’s car.

The opening montage ends with the whole family squeezed on the settee ready to watch the cartoon version of the show.

I saw that last night on YouTube, but I didn't want to post it as I had just posted something on South Park and the Matrix and South Park and Star Wars. Still, it's pretty good.

That's actually pretty cool. I think they did a rather good job, but I have to agree with Drizzt on the Lisa thing. The other actors still gave a slighy vibe of the character they were suppose to be, but the girl for lisa just didn't work for me.

Yeah... I think it might be the red hair. I saw her and was like, "Huh? That's not Lisa!"

Otherwise I thought it was wonderfully done... almost to the point of being a bit creepy.

Yeah, they got a red-haired (if not strawberry blonde) to be Lisa.

Also, not to be picky, doesn't Lisa wear like a red/orange sandals? Well I am getting picky... I was also nit-picking her dress, but I don't think anyone more was really expecting Marge and Lisa to wear tube-top like dresses.
