    Thumbs Up What is your favourite Simpsons Easter Egg? (Hidden messages, jokes, features they put in the show)

    I'm not talking about the chocolate one's you get at Easter but more so the one's you get in films, TV shows etc... you know inside jokes, hidden messages, images or secret features of a work that they put in and we find out later in regards to them.

    For me, I think one of the most clever one's is the McBain movie how they put this together to actually make a little movie, someone has uploaded a video of the collection of clips together so you can see.



    The other thing that I think is quite cool is in the intro where Maggie goes over the scanner, this price that shows on the till is apparently the average cost of raising a baby per month in the US, it's also pretty cool how they show Danny Elfman's name on the store front in the intro (the guy who composed the theme).

    I also recall hearing about the design of Homer's ear being MG of Matt Groenings initials which is also pretty cool.

    I'm sure there's more however what hidden Easter Eggs do you like within The Simpsons that you know of?

    I look forward to hearing from you guys

    There’s a secret commentary in Lisa the Simpson that I’ve never been able to access because the required buttons to press to get to it aren’t on the PlayStation controller. But that’s one of those super hidden things that I’d love to listen to.

    Oh really, I use PS4 too so wouldn't have a clue in regards to how to access it, is it on all the DVD's too or just the region 1 release? (I'm guessing they're all the same but just encoded to different regions).

    I didn't even have a clue about that so thank you.

    I would assume it’s on all the DVDs. Apparently you press 6 and enter on the DVD remote during the scene when Lisa is trying to figure out the puzzle in the cafeteria, and as we all know, controllers don’t have 6’s and enters.

    Yeah, probably quite hard for most people now as I don't really know many who actually have a DVD player anymore, most people I know uses consoles mainly. My mum has a Blu Ray player and I guess some people still use DVD players built into TV's but it's probably few and far between now as opposed to consoles etc...

    I always thought the McBain movie wasn't done on purpose, but the plot was so generic the various scenes fitted together anyway.

    Aye, though if you do look the characters do seem to fit in after each scene too and follow up from that so I'm not sure, either way it's a cool little thing
