Woo Hoo! The Simpsons TV Show and Adobe Make Live Animation Television History

For over two decades, The Simpsons has been known for pushing the envelope and exploring current topics. The show got even more current in a recent episode, “Simprovised”, when Homer Simpson talked to the audience in a live, three-minute segment. Nothing was recorded or animated in advance. Instead voice actor Dan Castellaneta delivered a live, improvised performance powered by Adobe Character Animator for realistic lip sync and keyboard-trigger animations.
