The game was bundled with the Amiga for about a year, in a bundle called Cartoon Classics
which also included Captain Planet
, 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 edited to allow for 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 in comparison to the show.
