The Simpsons - The Lion King by MelanieGracey The Simpsons - The Lion King by MelanieGracey
Yes. Another Simpsons musical crossover. :P This time, The Lion King. With all due respect to the stage show having a (mostly) all-black cast, and this isn't to say I think a white cast would work better, but same as for the Sweeney Todd drawings I did -- Simpsons characters reminded me of certain characters in the show.

Okay -- anyway. Another crossover stemmed from the idea that Sideshow Bob reminded me of stage!Scar.
Unfortunately, I drew Bart's head in the lower right. I had no idea who to cast as Nala, because Lisa would be icky, so I drew in babysitter from "New Kid on the Block".

And I'd say I did pretty well, considering this was my first time drawing Lenny and Barney.
Pride Rock and the Grassland costume were just stuck in to fill space.

Edit: As per request.
Simba - Bart
Mufasa - Homer
Scar - Sideshow Bob
Nala - Laura Powers
Timon - Lenny
Pumbaa - Barney
Zazu - Sideshow Mel


The Simpsons Matt Groening/20th Century Fox.
The Lion King Disney.

I'm late to comment. As always. XD

I love both TLKoB and the Simpsons. This is just too awesome for words. But I LOVE the scenes you picked! :D

This made my night XD

Excellent choice of Bart as Simba and Bob as Scar. Now, I wonder if The Simpsons will ever make a parody of it, it could work. :?

So then Marge is Sarabi? But then who's Rafiki? XD Hans Mole?

Laura is a better Nala than Lisa will ever be. And Laura/Bart is ok, in my eyes.

I love how Bob looks so...suave.

I think that if they ever would to make a parody of this it would go something similair to this. Homer would be Mufasa, Marge would Sarabi and Bart would Simba. As for who Rafiki I think Grandpa Simpson would be a good choice in my opinion. For the hyneas Patty could Shenzi, Ceil or Jailbird could be Banzai and Ed could be Krusty maybe I am not sure. As for Laura, I love her and Bart together so I think putting her as Nala really fits. Sideshow Bob I think really fits the Scar very well with him being so sinister and evil.

Ha; I wish they would. They haven't done many musical parodies, I don't think, except for Streetcar! being sort of a parody of Sweeney Todd.

Yes, I think Marge would make a pretty good Sarabi. (And just imagining her with the headpiece on top of her tall hair makes me giggle. :P)
Hmm; I was thinking maybe Crazy Cat Lady? But Hans would be an interesting choice. :P
Thank you; I do too. ;)

But recently they've like the idea of parodies, they are making of everything in the last seasons. Batman Begins, Christmas Stories...etc.

That would be funny XD I'm still trying to figure out which Disney chars. fit Homer and Marge the best (but that's because Homer/Marge is my favorite couple, and it would be cute to picture them in Disney romance) :XD:

I forgot Rafiki was female in the show. Silly me :headshake: The Crazy Cat Lady would work very well. :nod:

You're welcome. ;) He is quite fabolous.
