    There was also an episode earlier this season (the one with all the iPod parodies and everything) where, in the totally unrelated subplot, Homer turns on a notebook and is greeted by the standard chiming noise.
    There's also a lot of episodes where, if you look at computer screens, more often then not the "OS" they're using is based off of OS 8/9 (even an episode from two years ago ["Marge Gamer", season 18), Marge is using a notebook with something that looks suspiciously like OS 9...is that even possible these days? :p)

    That's a neat scene, and kinda funny considering I was actually just about to go and watch this episode :p
    For once it actually fully looks like an Apple product (except it's coloured to look like the aluminum model, yet the back isn't black...)

    How about season 2 episode 4 "Two Cars in Every Garage and Three Eyes on Every Fish" when Smithers is doctoring up Mr. Burns photo on a mac.

    Burns: Put more apple in my cheeks
    Smithers: It's appling now sir.

    That was almost 20 years ago!

    I remember that one.

    And I got another. How about the couch gag where they drag each family member into the trash one at a time and then empty trash. All done OS classic-ish.

    That episode's from Season 17 (it's called "Bart Has Two Mommies" if you want to look it up if you don't believe me :p). You can tell the new episodes from old mainly because the older ones have somewhat choppy, hand-painted animation. The new ones (Season 14 onwards) are digitally coloured, just like the frames you posted.

    Come to think of it, they didn't have iMac G4's in 1995 :p:p

    I wonder why I said 4...

    Renewed until at least Season 23, it's FOX's cash cow, even if it's not the same quality as it once was...

    EDIT: Haha, that Lisa thing made me laugh out loud. :p

    This made me laugh. :D

    I remember there was an episode of The Simpsons when Springfield Mall gets a 'Mapple Store' (there was a thread about it). Lisa was saying how she will never afford a MiPod or any Mapple Product. Well, now look at her! :rolleyes:

    I just think it's awesome that with a name even as common as Lisa (not to mention The Apple Lisa) when I saw this I immediately thought it would be Lisa Simpson. Who would have thought that a semi-satirical prime-time cartoon would be this successful for 20 years?

    Nice thread, but Simpsons deserve their own.

    The Simpsons are one main reasons for watching tv. They should dump FOX though.
