ProSieben: 25 Jahre Simpsons

ProSieben:25 Jahre Simpsons

The yellow animated family from Springfield isan integral part of American pop culture and has long since achieved cultstatus with us. As Homer voice Norbert Gastell said in an interview:"There is a little Homer in each of us." To celebrate our favouritefamily's 25th anniversary, Creative Solutions invited the Germanvoices of Homer & Co in front of the camera. They built a replica of theliving room and invited the famous voice actors of the Simpsons family. NorbertGastell, Sandra Schwittau and Sabine Bohlmann act in their familiar Simpsons style.And we realize how much fun they have dubbing Homer, Bart, Lisa and Maggie. Bythe time Homer-Norbert apologises to Bart-Sandra for the slightly too realisticchoking scene, it becomes clear with how much passion, commitment anddedication the speakers act. The audience thanked ProSieben with consistentlyhigh ratings – not only for the 25th season, but also for therepeats. A fantastic look behind the scenes with a lot of ironic moments!Original, innovative and humorous!
