The Daily Rhino
Archive footage, circa 1984
THIS film was recently discovered in a Sheffield cellar and it has been alleged it became the inspiration for a successful televised animated series, or 'cartoon', entitled 'The Simpsons'.
Seriously though, this is the (British) Sky One trailer for the Simpsons and is filmed in the UK. Which is why I'm particularly impressed Homer is driving a left-hand drive car. The attention to detail is superb - check out Marge's blink in the supermarket, the TV screens 'Bart' skates past and the band conductor's hairstyle. Brilliant.
(This is just a pit-stop, I'm still halfway through that map below)
