Disney+ (pronounced Disney Plus) is a subscription video on-demand streaming service owned and operated by the Disney Streaming division of the The Walt Disney Company. The service primarily distributes films and television series produced by The Walt Disney Studios and Walt Disney Television. The service also advertises content from Disney's Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic and the Star brands in particular. Original films and television series are also distributed on Disney+, with ten films and seven series having been produced for the platform as of November 2019. Serving adjacent to Disney's other streaming platforms – the general programming-oriented Hulu and the sports-oriented ESPN+ – Disney+ focuses on family entertainment based around Disney brands.

As of April 2023, 34 of the 36 commissioned seasons of The Simpsons are available internationally on Disney+. Prior to May 28, 2020, seasons 1-19 and some episodes of season 20 were cropped to fit widescreen televisions, rather than existing in their original 4:3 aspect ratio. Since May 28, 2020, these episodes have been made available in their original ratio alongside the cropped 16:9 remasters.

Disney+ has also included The Simpsons Movie, and the theatrical short films The Longest Daycare and Playdate with Destiny. Beginning in 2021, 20th Television Animation produced the short films for the service, The Force Awakens From Its Nap (2021), The Good, The Bart, and The Loki (2021), The Simpsons in Plusaversary (2021), Welcome to the Club (2022), Rogue Not Quite One (2023), and May the 12th Be With You (2024). The service also includes animated music videos with the series collaborating with musicians, with Bad Bunny in Te Deseo Lo Mejor, released on December 24, 2021, and with Billie Eilish in When Billie Met Lisa, released on April 22, 2022.

On its official Disney+ Facebook page, the streaming service released three Simpsons videos, focusing on the series referencing Marvel, Star Wars and Disney.

Trivia[]

  • Although Disney+ has made all thirty-five seasons of The Simpsons available for streaming, the season 3 episode "Stark Raving Dad" is not available on the streaming service, due to the controversial Leaving Neverland documentary that aired in 2019, which details allegations against Michael Jackson of alleged pedophilia and child sexual assault, and Jackson once guest-starred as Leon Kompowsky in that episode. Likewise, the season 10 episode "Thirty Minutes Over Tokyo" is unavailable to stream on Disney+ in Japan, due to scenes that are considered offensive to Japan and its culture, including the "Battling Seizure Robots" scene (which is a parody of the Pokémon anime seizure incident) and another one with Homer tossing the emperor of Japan into a sumo thong dumpster. The season 16 episode "Goo Goo Gai Pan" and the season 34 episode "One Angry Lisa" is also unavailable to stream on Disney+ in Hong Kong, due to former in part to references to the 1989 Tianamen Square massacre and a scene featuring former dictator Mao Zedong, and the latter for a character mentioning forced labor camps in China.[3][4][5] Also, The Simpsons Movie and all shorts are unavailable to stream on Disney+ in South Korea due to unknown reasons, unlike other countries. It is possible that the reason is that the film is available for one of the paid Movies for Korean YouTube. However, unlike other Asian countries, the South Korean version of Disney+ has the entire original Simpsons series available.
  • Disney+ cut some clips from episodes, such as in the episode "Natural Born Kissers" where Marge's bare breasts are shown, possibly to make the show slightly more family-friendly. Another notable example is in the episode "The Wreck of the Relationship", where a scene depicting the middle finger was blurred, as it was on TV.
  • While in most areas the entire show is available to stream in this service, in Latin America there are only two seasons available, which are Season 29 and Season 30. Because of this, a separate service called Star+ was released in Latin America on August 31, 2021 and include the entire Simpsons series.
