Disney+ cuts off  Simpsons  jokes with widescreen episodes - Engadget
The Disney+ launch didn t just have some technical hiccups -- it also irritated The Simpsons fans. Viewers have discovered that all classic Simpsons episodes are the cropped widescreen versions, not the 4:3 originals that FXX brought back in 2015.
