See Why The Simpsons Is Funnier In Spanish


From the folks at Great Big Story, we get to see why one cartoon is funnier in another language.  “The Simpsons” has been a staple of American pop culture for nearly three decades. As the longest running animated show, Homer Simpson’s dumb/drunk antics and penchant for donuts has made him arguably the most recognizable character on television. But beyond the United States, the show has become a worldwide sensation, with some of the biggest fans hailing from Latin America. That’s all thanks to Humberto Vélez, the voice behind Homero Simpson. Using his own life experiences, Humberto has tailored the perspective and humor of Homero Simpson to relate to Latin American culture. How do you say “d’oh!” in Spanish?
