Disney Plus will be streaming The Simpsons in the 4:3 aspect ratio this month – the original aspect ratio of the show. This is a big deal for all Simpsons’ fans. The show went from 4:3 to 16:9 in the year 2009. In the 16:9 ratio, a lot of significant details and key visual cues were getting cropped out. It was also making certain scenes super confusing and the references to the jokes could not be followed accurately.
