"I was calm on the outside, but thinking all the time. So now it was to be Georgie the general, saying what we should do and what not to do, and Dim as his mindless greeding bulldog. But suddenly I viddied that thinking was for the gloopy ones and that the oomny ones use, like, inspiration and what Bog sends. For now it was lovely music that came to my aid. There was a window open with the stereo on and I viddied right at once what to do."
This is 1 of 3 The Simpsons/A Clockwork Orange crossover themed drawings. Here are the links to the rest: [link] [link]
These pieces of art were inspired by one (of the many) references the Simpsons paid tribute to the film “A Clockwork Orange.” One reference in particular, in Tree House of Horror III (the episode with the segment “King Homer”) where Bart Simpson is dressed in the costume of Alex DeLarge from the film. I spring-boarded from that image and thought it would be humorous to take Bart and some of his friends, dressed them as Droogs and pose them in legendary scenes from the film.
For me, the comedy comes from the collusion of two generational behemoths. That even as controversial as the Simpsons kids are (or were), they are nowhere near as insane the Droogs in “A Clockwork Orange,” and implying that these cartoonish icons could be capable of the types of things that are done in a film like “A Clockwork Orange,” is sort of funny to me. Of course, I have a skewed sense of humor. LOL!
