The game was bundled with the Amiga for about a year, in a bundle called 'Cartoon Classics' which also included Captain Planet, Lemmings and Deluxe Paint 3. The pack was unchanged when the Amiga 500 Plus model launched. Because the Amiga didn't come with a joystick at the time, the bundled version was specially edited to allow keyboard control.
For the Amiga version, Arc Development decided to include an animated opening sequence in the style of the actual Simpsons show. In order for them to do this they had to send each frame to Matt Groening and he hand drew over each one. Despite this effort, the animation still looks poor compared to the show.
