EW Exclusive: New poster from 'The Simpsons' celebrates 20th season

All this poster is missing is Waldo. Tied to the DVD release of The Simpsons‘ 20th season (out Jan. 12), Fox has created an updated poster of their famous shot from 2007’s The Simpsons Movie. Because, clearly, they did not fit enough characters on their first poster. Slackers. (You can only enjoy this new and improved poster in larger form here—this shot is exclusive to EW!)

Springfield folks I’m glad made the cut this time around? The Golem from “Treehouse of Horror XVII,” the angel skeleton from “Lisa the Skeptic,” and Ray Romano’s Ray Magini from “Don’t Fear the Roofer.” But I’m absolutely stoked to see one of my favorite characters, Eleanor Abernathy (a.k.a. Crazy Cat Lady), if only because she reminds me of who I will be in 30 years’ time.

Personally, I could study this poster and soak up warm feelings of nostalgia for hours. But do you love the new poster, PopWatchers? Have Matt Groening & Co., missed anyone?

    As long as my favorite is on there. Mole man.

    Took me forever to find Ralph! I like boys now.

    I’m curious to know why there are two modern-day Homers? One w/normal smile and the other looking as if his brain had just been removed?

  • JFGroo

    @KristopherR: The “no-brain” Homer is probably a clone from the “Tree House of Horror XIII”. We’ll have to see if he has a belly buttuon…

    The Simpsons Movie poster was by no means the first one of a big group shot like this; I remember at least one other from way back in the day, the one I’m thinking of came with a board game.

    • Bobby’s Robot

      I think it was a trivia game. It’s in the back of my closet somewhere.

        I used to have a gigantic Simpsons poster above my bed

  • Hm

    An awfully large portion of them seem to be Treehouse of Terror characters. I imagine there are a lot of non-Halloween characters missing. I did find Johnny Cash’s space coyote, so +1 for that.

    So strange that they’re releasing the season 20 DVD when they haven’t released seasons 13-19 yet. I know its to commemorate the 20 year anniversary, but its just weird.

    Oh and the first thing I noticed was the face angel skeleton, love that episode. Going through that poster was like revisiting my childhood

    • Rick

      It’s also the first season made in HD I think, so they’re releasing it on blu-ray too.

  • hannah

    Mole Man is right up front just behind Spider Pig.

    Um, did anyone find Lisa?

    • Patrick

      Shes right next to Mrs Crabapple (sp?)

  • Patrick

    I cant find the army vet with one arm (I forget his name).

    • Yesenia

      I think it’s Herman

  • lordnelsonpublicschool

    It’s missing the title: “Wow, is that show STILL on??!!”

    • Ramo

      Yeah and it’s still as good or better than 95% of everything else on TV.

      • Fusbo

        Oh lordnelsonpublicschool, with rapier wit like that, you sir are on the cutting edge of 1998’s comedy.

  • JohnG

    This is actually an updated/extended version of this poster, which is at least 8-9 years old:

  • Sylvia

    Found him! lol i forget his name too but the one armed guy is above spider pig like 3 people up or so, right above grampa simpson

  • ecsmac

    Where’s the inanimate carbon rod!?
    My fave!

    • westiola

      it’s right below Nelson all the way on the left side.

  • Shane

    Wow, they did a really bad job of integrating some of these characters. The worst two are the African guide next to Homer on the far right, who looks like he’s standing on top of one of Homer’s shoes, and the bearded man (no idea who he is) next to Dr. Nick on the far left, who looks like he’s standing on the “Bad Seed” child’s head and his foot extends in front of another character’s chest.
