And this is just a sample of the brain power it takes to bring The Simpsons to life. ONLY GOD HAS FIVE FINGERS. The jaundiced residents of Springfield—like most other cartoon characters—are notable for only possessing eight fingers and eight toes. Just one of the perks of being in charge. There is one inconsistency, though: Whether this is some profound message or a simple animator slip-up is up to your own interpretation.
According to the DVD commentary, a feature-length script never came together. In fact, the writers had a hard enough time stretching the story out to a standard episode length, so an 80 or 90 minute film was out of the question. THE SIMPSONS GOT INTO A PUBLIC WAR WITH THE BUSH FAMILY. Bush, but they wrote the letter in character as Marge Simpson. The letter takes some good-natured shots at Mrs. Speaking at a convention for religious broadcasters in , President George H.
Bush vowed to strengthen American families, to make them "a lot more like the Waltons and a lot less like the Simpsons. This led to a very brief—but surprisingly brutal—war of words between Groening and executive producer James L. But his behavior right now is rotten. And it's not pretty when a rich man acts like this. ELIZABETH TAYLOR VOICED MAGGIE FOR ONE WORD. Taylor reappeared on the show toward the end of the fourth season in the episode "Krusty Gets Kancelled.
THE SHOW HAS LANDED BOTH BANKSY AND THOMAS PYNCHON. Yet somehow, they both contributed to The Simpsons—Banksy with a couch gag and Pynchon as a guest-voice. He even edited his own dialogue for the show, removing a line where he was supposed to call Homer a fat ass. Al Jean said he was a little concerned with the nature of the couch gag at first, but he and Groening agreed to leave it in with minimal changes. Chong agreed to serve time as part of a plea deal so his son and wife could avoid prosecution.
After serving his sentence, Chong returned as Leo, and the hilarity ensued. Eric's buddy Getty Images Joseph Gordon-Levitt's one episode role as Buddy made a big splash when he debuted in The character who first appeared in the aptly titled episode "Eric's Buddy" was intended to be recurring. Unfortunately, it seems viewers didn't care for Buddy and Eric engaging in what's thought to be the first homosexual kiss ever on prime-time TV.
Shortly thereafter, plans for more Buddy were scrapped. A decade later, Gordon-Levitt told The Advocate he's "proud" of being part of that moment, despite Topher Grace being a horrible kisser. Topher Grace supposedly hated the rest of the cast Getty Images The biggest behind-the-scenes story deals with Topher Grace, who played Eric Forman. True Hollywood Story, Grace was originally set to be the star of the show, and hints of this can be seen throughout his tenure. Many storylines revolved around Forman and his family.
As the rest of the characters became more popular, That '70s Show became more of an ensemble piece. Supposedly, this didn't sit too well with Grace and may have caused some problems with the cast. While no definitive proof of resentment exists, hints of it can be seen elsewhere… Ashton Kutcher got Punk'd Getty Images At the height of That '70s Show's fame, Ashton Kutcher started working on his own TV series, Punk'd.
In this show, Kutcher played practical, and sometimes elaborate, jokes on other celebrities and his close friends. Included in Kutcher's list of victims are his castmates Mila Kunis, Laura Prepon, Danny Masterson, and Wilmer Valderrama. As noted in E! True Hollywood Story, Topher Grace is glaringly absent from this list. The older cast members were never pranked, but that's probably more to do with the age difference.
Clearly, this was no accident. More evidence of Grace's displeasure can be seen in how he left the show. Topher Grace and Ashton Kutcher both left Getty Images As their separate movie careers grew, both Ashton Kutcher and Topher Grace left That '70s Show around the same time to answer Hollywood's call. Kutcher left during season 8, hanging around for 4 episodes to give closure to his character, and most likely not wanting to say goodbye to his friends.
Grace, on the other hand, made a quick exit, leaving at the end of season 7. It seems like someone couldn't wait to vamoose. Believe it or not, that's not the last time Grace acted like he didn't care for his castmates. Filming the final episode Getty Images Topher Grace's appearance in the final episode of That '70s Show is strange. He appears towards the end, as if he didn't want to be there.
