I recently had a dream that my dad died and my mum spent the life insurance payout on a new Indian dad, who told me to convert to Judaism, even though people usually change religion in September.

Because it wouldn't be funny if black people weren't black and it'd be weird to see a blue person or something. They probably used yellow people cos white was too boring.

I think the real question here is why is Millhouse such a little dick?



Because he doesn't realize that memes create themselves.

Quote by Abe Knuckleball
How come the people that are white are yellow but the other races stay the same colour?


I believe the actual reason is that at the time of the show first coming on TV, the creators/producers/etc wanted it to grab people's attention as they flicked by so they made them yellow, which is obviously more flashy than white. Once you add in other races...
#14
because white people arent actually white, they are more of a peachy color and since its a cartoon yellow is the closest they can come to peach while still having it cartoon looking
#15
i guess we wouldnt realise there asian or black, which would kill alot of jokes on the simpsons like when chief wigum his best man on the job and he has to choose between the black or the yellow guy

thats it right there

I believe they're yellow because it's much easier to keep constant in every scene. If the producers had tried to use a "lifelike" color they would've had to mix different inks and always have to work with the same ratio to mantain the same color. This seemed problematic so they decided to use yellow which was cheaper (only one paint instead of several to make another color) and easier to work with.

More to the point, why is his hair blue?
I hope it doesn't seem, like I'm young, foolish, and green.

Matty G thought it made it look like something was wrong with your TV - he also said that it was hte annimators choice and he thought it looked cool. Apparently the same annimators made the trees purple but that didnt catch on...

it made people change the settings on their tv

and to answer your question, there wasn't originally black people for like 2 seasons on the simpsons (i think)

apart from maybe apu? hmm but yeah some people have already answered this in here.

either a tan or they changed it because a gay black guy who acts like a servant would be too controversial.
