    I'm pretty sure Bart never wore a blue shirt in the show.

    They gave Bart a blue shirt in the early 90's to make the siblings stand apart from each other. The other reason is Lisa and Maggie have one-color clothing, so making Bart have a same color shirt and pants would be easier to produce.

    I guess the people behind the merchandise thought the public was too dumb to tell Bart and Lisa apart.


    Well, ya'know if you stay positive and forget about trivial things like "proper characterization," "Satire," and "emotional depth" watching new Simpsons episodes can be a seemingly enjoyable lie.

    "One of the keys to life is having a sense of proportion, knowing how long to sit at a restaurant after you've eaten, or how long you should go on vacation if you go to Hawaii for a month on vacation, I guarantee you that by the end you'll hate it. So it's the same with a TV show, you want to do a certain amount of it, so that when people look back on it and they love it. I could have easily done the show for one or two or three more years, but it would have changed the way people look back at it. I think I made the right decision. Because people like the show now even more than they did in the 1990s, because it didn't get worn out." -- Jerry Seinfeld

    Why was his shirt green on some the video game covers(eg. Krusty's Funhouse, Bart's Nightmare, Virtual Bart)?

    Yeah, I read once it was done to confuse the bootleggers of the early 90's.

    Bart was the most popular character back then.. I know... sounds crazy, but it makes sense they'd want to confuse the bootleggers over the most popular character.

    Why was there a black Smithers? Why did homer wear a pink shirt once? Why was Moe's hair black? I give you credit for catching it but it really didn't need a whole thread.

    You really want to know? Early in both the Tracy Ulman Shorts and The Series, Bart is shown, not always, wearing a blue shirt. In the merchandising back in the 90's, he's almost shown wearing a blue shirt in almost every toy, video game, comic book, you name it, but since Bart mostly wears a red shirt in the TV series and Shorts, and than later on today, merchandising showed Bart wearing mostly a red shirt, a lot of us don't know that he used to wear a shirt colored in blue.

    I'm not being a douche or mean or anything, I'm just stating that it could have been asked in the "Questions about The Simpsons" thread. It's a great question, I'll give you that.

    Looking at the screencaps on Simpsons Wiki... Bart does indeed have a light blue shirt in the first Ullman short, "Good Night". Then it seems like they went through a couple different colors for the rest of season 1 - he has a green shirt in "Bart Jumps", and a pale yellow-gold shirt in "Burp Contest". But it looks like the red shirt became permanent as of the final season 1 segment, "Eating Dinner".
