Who Altered ‘The Simpsons’ Final Credit and Why?

Jan 11, 2010  •  Post A Comment

When last night’s 20th anniversary episode of "The Simpsons" ended, the thank you credit–originally a friendly jab at Fox colleague Seth MacFarlane, the creator of animated series including “Family Guy”—was altered, reports The New York Times.

Instead of reading "Thanks for 20 wonderful years. Now stay tuned for three Seth MacFarlane shows," the card’s second line read "The best is yet to come." A Fox spokeswoman said the version given to critics was a rough cut, and those are often changed before air.

  1. I noted this, too, after seeing an advance copy. My best guess is that it was changed because, for the first time in a long time, “The Simpsons” was *not* followed by 3 Seth MacFarlane shows, but by Morgan Spurlock’s Simpsons documentary. Still, I think the original jab was funny and still would have worked.
