'The Simpsons' Meets 'Akira' In This Ultimate Animation Mashup [Watch]


A bunch of animation legends have just smashed two wonderful, albeit incredibly different, animations together for Bartkira: The Animated Trailer. The Bartkira project started a couple of years back when artist Ryan Hymohrey thought it would be lol to do some drawings mashing up The Simpsons and Katsuhiro Otomo's manga Akira.

The trailer mirrors the OG Akira trailer perfectly, except our favourite little four-fingered, yellow friends are cast in the main roles, Neo-Tokyo is replaced by Neo-Springfield, and sk8boards take the place of the anime movie's motorcycles. Shak-ah.

Poor old Ned Flanders becomes dead pretty quickly, Millhouse is tragic as ever in the role of Tetsuo, and we discover that Eleanor Abernathy will forever play an extremely convincing cray cat lady.

Check out the very good use of Ryan's time below for a taste of what could be an excellent feature film.
