The Simpsons' Wonderful Parodies of Pixar, Wallace & Gromit, and Other Animated Films

Last night's Simpsons was a particularly excellent one, in which Bart made a short film that was then nominated for a slew of awards. It featured some truly great guest appearances by Ricky Gervais, JB Smoove and Russell Brand, but the real treat was seeing the four clips that they created for the other animated shorts nominated along with Bart's. They included loving parodies of a Pixar (sorry, "Mixar") movie, a Wallace & Gromit short, The Triplets of Belleville and Persepolis. The entire episode is worth a watch, especially for lapsed Simpsons fans who haven't checked in on the show in a while, but here are the parodies in question:

Here are the The Triplets of Belleville and Persepolis parodies:

And here's the clip from "Mixar's" movie, Condiments:

And Wallace & Gromit:

    The Simpsons have been doing a lot of these extended format parody things lately, like the muppet thing on the Christmas epiesode. Hasn't really been that bad this year, honestly.

    the quality of these parodies lies in the spot-on animation. i watched the show last night & again just now & still can't think of any memorable gags (well, memorable GOOD gags, anyway) in any of these bits. the only thing i came away with was that it looked good & was probably really expensive to do.
    oh, and that the current writers of the simpsons have never seen / read "persepolis".
