    Here are 25 inexplicable moments in The Simpsons! Subscribe to our channel: bit.ly/Subscribe-to-Screenrant
    Welcome back to Screen Rant! Cartoons don’t typically follow the traditional rules for character arcs, aging, and logistics, but things get even more complicated when you’ve been on the air for thirty-plus years. That’s right - we’re talking about The Simpsons, everyone’s beloved yellow-skinned family. Over the years, we’ve followed the family as some wacky adventures, but there are moments, plots, and character changes that just cannot be explained!
    So let’s dive in to discuss characters who disappears, some MAJOR plot holes, and stories that just kind of fell by the wayside. Bart Simpsons hasn’t evolved much in the 30 years he’s been on the air, making his love life more complicated than ever. And then there’s the smartest of the bunch, Lisa Simpson. One punchline made little sense considering the knowledge her character has. The Simpsons house is full of portraits, but during flashbacks we have to wonder how is it possible that some of these portraits still exist?!
    Employment can be tough, but apparently not in Springfield where Homer seems to have a new job every single week! And the same goes for Krusty the Clown who has somehow managed to stay on the air all these years. Ned Flanders is faithful to his church, except in one episode where he shows up out of nowhere when he should be in church still! The Simpsons have had the same home for many many years -- but somehow, their address has changed multiple times including different street names! Watch to see all of these moments and some ways they will never be explained on the show!

I just assume that each episode of the Simpsons is an alternate universe. So there’s no real canon.

Well, each and every episode, within reason, aren't meant to connect. This is why no one ages in the show. It's almost like each episode is an alternate timeline. Rather than a show like Dragon Ball, where circumstances will effect the timeline as it continues to air.

The entire town of Springfield was relocated at one point so the street name inconstancies could be from that.

Not having MJ Sing on the simpsons isnt odd. MJ's Singing would mean hed need to be paid more just like saying pepsi on a show isnt the same thing as Showing a pepsi or showing somone drinking a pepsi copywrite laws are crazy weird things. in otherwords having MJ voicing speaking lines is not the same thing as having MJ Singing Lines

I don't know why nobody ever seems to pick upon this but "The Principal and the Pauper" episode is one of The Simpsons parody episodes. It is obviously based on the true 16'th century story of Martin Guerre, Even the principal's original name of Armand Tamsarian is based on the protagonist's real name of Arnaud du Tilh

When Marge tells Honer she’s pregnant with Maggie, isn’t it possible that that picture isn’t Maggie but Lisa & Maggie now wears hand-me downs? (2) The kids hair when Lisa becomes president of the school she’s is given several different hairstyles & Bart’s is split down the middle so doesn’t that mean it is indeed hair?

The address change is easy to explain. Springfield has an "emergency contingent plan" that consists of the whole town's buildings being picked up and moved 5 miles down the road. They did this in the episode "Trash of the Titans" Season 9 Episode 22. New location, new addresses. As for Fat Tony's name, I'd expect a mob boss to have tons of fake names. And Fat Tony died and was replaced with his cousin "Fit" Tony, which would add even more false names attributed to Fat Tony. In fact most of these can be explained away without much mental gymnastics.

If I remember correctly, Michael Jackson wanted too much money for him to sing as well OR he just wouldn’t do it, either way MJ wouldn’t do the singing and they needed a stand in.

They DID say why Micheal Jackson only did the speaking roles, and why he was never credited. Contracts. Micheal's music contract invented him from being credited in the show, and from singing any of the songs himself. They said Micheal was there during the song recordings to "coach" the stand in singer. The stand in even admitted to it being the most nerve wracking moment in his life, recording Micheal Jackson songs, in front of Micheal Jackson

The reason to why the simpsons house address changed was because in the episode trash of the titans springfield was filled with trash and they were forced to move the whole town miles away.

4:36 "maybe the whole town of Springfield got remapped at some point." At one point the whole town was picked up and relocated several miles down the road.

The likely reason they didn't use michael jacksons singing voice was probably that the show was relatively new at the time and they couldn't afford his singing voice, actually makes a lot of sense when you think about it

Or the Maggie picture is Lisa? She was a kid at some point too, you see Bart as a baby too. Oh btw being left or right handed doesn't mean you can't use the other hand.

It's not that they didn't want to "use" MJ's singing voice, it's just that he wouldn't do it.

Ned appearing at the Simpson's house when it's burning could be explained simply as Ned not seeing Homer at church and tried to find him. I'm only suggesting this as I have had a similar thing happen to me when I decided not to go to church one time.

One thing I have been impressed with them keeping consistent is Bart's left-handedness. I think Lisa is right-handed, but at 4:27 she can be seen writing with her left hand.

that is not correct about MJ, nobody knows if they used MJ singing or not beacuse MJ didnt not want to be creited of it thats why they did other recording, MJ when sharing his voice in other things asked not to be creited in alot of things, it was common for MJ

The Lord of the Flies episode ending is meant to be a nod to the fact that the Lord of the Flies has an abrupt and seemingly ill-fitting ending as well. It's part of the charm of the book that the beginning and end are treated as after thoughts, almost to an extreme. The book is about what happens on the island and is forcefully NOT about how they got there or left.

The town HAS been remapped. They moved it five miles after Homer took control of garbage pickup. As for Fat Tony, he isn’t the only person to use that name as you even used a clip from the episode where he dies and his brother becomes the new Fat Tony.

You remember the Poochie episode where the voice actors are getting interviewed by a bunch of nerds? Homer slams them for nit-picking and the nerd withdraws his question. I feel this video deserves the same Homer Simpson reply, "What the hell are you talking about?"
