The Simpsons did the impossible — made people forget that they had been on TV for ages (and for free!) and forced them to pay good money to see it again in theaters. After an impressive theatrical jump, the yellow-skinned family of delinquents will now be headed to DVD, and we have the DVD cover art and special features that will be available for your purchasing pleasure. As Homer said at the beginning of “The Simpsons” movie — you’re all suckers for buying this DVD when it hits the street December 18! Here’s what Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment sent over.
