Product Description

Amazon.com

You can create your own set of the Simpsons! With 50 special effects, 270 props, and 35 backgrounds, the options for Marge, Homer, Lisa, Bart, and Maggie are endless. The software was created with over 12,000 individual cels, hand-drawn by actual Simpsons cartoonists.

Review

The Simpson's Cartoon Studio lets you create your own Homer-bilia by handing you the characters, backgrounds, props, and sound effects necessary to develop your own 'toon. The entire town of Springfield is at your disposal as you master the ins and outs of creating an animated short. Though half the fun of creating anything is the process of getting there, it's hard to get anywhere with this title's lack of any onscreen tutorial or help functions.

Likes: "I liked how there was all the main characters from the real Simpsons show to choose from." Carl

"I liked it because it was just like the Simpsons and I love the Simpsons." Lena

"Some of the things the characters did, along with the backgrounds and music, made it very entertaining." Krystal

Dislikes: "It didn't give you enough directions." Lena

"I couldn't find out how you made the people move from one place to another. If they were walking they would walk in one place, not move from here to there." Krystal

Rating:3/4

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice Graphics, Sloppy Play September 30, 2000
The "Simpsons Cartoon Studio" by Fox Interactive marks the first time the Simpsons appeared on a CD-ROM based program for computers everywhere. When I first heard of it, I thought it was great that everyone's favorite dysfunctional family were coming to PCs everywhere, however when I purchased the finished product, I was disenchanted.
The game, which should appeal more to children between the ages of 6-14, allows the user to create cartoon scenarios using various characters, settings, and props. Allowing the user to create their very own episode might sound like a great idea, however, it is not. The instructions weren't too helpful, and about the only cool thing about this product is the packaging.
In other words, if you are a die-hard Simpsons fan, and must have everything with their likeness on it, then purchase this CD-ROM. If not, I would skip over this and purchase a collection of Simpsons episodes now available on videocassette for an enjoyable evening.

5.0 out of 5 stars My kids LOVE this game! July 20, 2001
I bought the Simpsons Cartoon Studio CD ROM for my twin 12 year olds boys' birthdays. They are both Simpson fanatics, and love everything Simpsons. I had read some of the negative reviews on this product here, and was a bit wary of it as a result ... but I got it anyway. Mostly, the reviews said that the instructions were either missing or inadequate, and it was too difficult to figure out how to make the program do anything, or control the animations. Well, nothing could be farther from the truth. My one son who is more technical read the HUGE included instruction booklet cover to cover the first night, and from then on he was off and running. He says this is his favorite Computer game now, and he absolutely loves the animation possibilities, the characters, props, backgrounds, voices, music, etc. He has created several complicated masterpieces that look great. I can only conclude that they must have re-released this CD with a better instruction book after the earlier reviews were written. (There are actually two copyright dates on it, so that's probably what happened.) In any case, it's a huge hit in our house, and my sons are both thrilled with it!!! We also got the "Virtual Springfield" CD ROM ... another FANTASTIC game! One son likes that one more, but the other likes the Cartoon Studio better!

One of the joys of being a packrat is discovering really cool stuff you forgot you ever owned. The Simpsons Cartoon Studio joins my list of rediscovered gems. I fired this thing up in my XP PC (it's also compatible with Macs) and soon found myself spending more time than I had planned just having fun. It is true, my friends - while you probably won't transform yourself into Matt Groening, you can indeed make your own Simpsons cartoons. It's not inherently easy to do, but with time, practice, and some imagination, you can amuse your friends and indulge the little child in you that always wanted to grow up and be a cartoonist.
This software gives you more options than you might expect, especially given the fact it was released way back in 1996. First, you can choose from a total of 35 backdrops, including many beloved Springfield locations, as the setting for your little cartoon adventure. Fill the space with your choice of a huge number of items - furniture, signs, electronic gadgets, three-eyed fish, etc. Once the scene is set, bring on the actors - luckily, you won't have to deal with threatened actors' strikes in order to bring your Simpsons creations life. Almost all of your favorites are here: Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, Maggie, Mr. Burns (Excellent!), Smithers, Krusty, Milhouse, Barney, Moe, Nelson, Flanders, Ralph, the aliens, etc. Each of them comes equipped with a number of different actions and sound clips. Naturally, the Simpsons family members offer you the most options, but you can easily add such elements as Homer running and falling down, Lisa getting down with her bad self on the saxophone, Bart skateboarding by, Maggie plopping down on the ground, Nelson pointing and laughing, Barney burping - it goes on and on.

3.0 out of 5 stars Unless a hardcore fan, buy something else January 29, 2000
When I first bought Cartoon Studio I expected a feast of Simpsons delights that I would never tire of. For the first few days, I was right. But those few days were spent learning how to use the program. Now I am completely bored. The character movements are limited, and some don't fit any of their phrases- eg. Grampa Simpson has a lot of phrases but his only movement is to be asleep and snoring in a rocking chair! The characters' mouths don't move AT ALL so you can't make it look like they're saying anything. And the five-minute limit to your cartoons is also restrictive. DO NOT BUY THIS GAME UNLESS YOU ARE A HARDCORE SIMPSONS FAN!

5.0 out of 5 stars This game is great June 22, 2000
By A Customer
This game is a great game. I don't know why "the critic" is complaining. This is the best Simpsons game I have ever played. Its fun to make the people float in the air. It also has cool music you can add.

By A Customer
This program almost swept me off my feet. With so many characters, voices, and sounds to choose from, the plots are limitless! I am a huge Simpsons fan and this game proved itself not to be a disappointment.
