Banksy Does The Simpsons Doh!

Graffiti artist Banksy (AKA Robert Banks) has created the opening sequence for the American cartoon The Simpsons.
 The episode, called ‘MoneyBart’, was aired on TV in the US on Sunday night and will be shown in the UK later this month. Producers approached Banksy to design one of the "couch gags" that open each episode, but Banksy claims his elaborate plans led to delays, wrangles with broadcast standards and a threatened walk-out by the animation department.The show begins with the usual scenes showing the Simpsons on their sofa, but there are also Banksy tags scrawled across the fictional town of Springfield.
 Bart is shown writing "I must not write all over the walls" across the walls of his classroom.
 The controversial intro then shows dozens of sweatshop workers in a filthy warehouse painting cartoon scenes and making Simpsons merchandise. See Video & Read More....
