DISNEY+ has finally tackled a major fan complaint with The Simpsons after iconic scenes were cut.
The streaming service launched in March but was almost immediately slammed by fans of the hit animated series who thought old episodes and picture layouts have been edited.
In a show like The Simpsons, which relies heavily on jokes and innuendos, cutting out 25 percent of the screen means the removal of some jokes, ruining visual gags, background details, which enrich the show and make it memorable for its viewers.
Now The Simpsons showrunner Al Jean has confirmed that a fix to the problem is being rolled out across all of the show's streaming options within the next week.
He tweeted on Wednesday: "The most important tweet I can make: 4:3 available on Simpsons World! Seasons 1-7 now, rest soon thx FXX.
"The even more important most important tweet I can make! As always you have been heard! @theSimpsons episodes will be available in their original 4:3 aspect ratio on #DisneyPlus beginning 5/28."
This means fans can finally watch all episodes in their original format, so no jokes or innuendos will be missed.
Fans were delighted, and quickly replied to the news with one writing: "Yes!!! Thanks to all of you for making that possible."
Another added: "Glad to see it’s finally getting fixed!"
A third tweeted: "Been waiting for this, I'll give Disney+ a go when this drops."
In further good news for fans of The Simpsons, Disney+ is also by adding the Academy Award-nominated Simpsons short film The Longest Daycare on Friday, May 29.
Disney+ is fully embracing the show, as it is also poking fun at its infamous ability to predict world events with a special Simpsons predictions page.
Disney+ is available in the US and UK now.
