** And, furthermore, though many of these scenes were animated, and the producers claim the film changed so often that at least another film's worth of material made it to storyboard and/or animatic, only a few minutes of dull deleted scenes appear on the DVD.
** Originally, Marge, not Grandpa was supposed to be the one to have the prophecy at church, but the writers admitted they were a little disturbed by the fact the entire family would just ignore when someone like Marge would completely wig out, so they changed to the character that everyone ignored anyway.

* ThrowItIn: HansZimmer produced a choral version of Spider-Pig for the soundtrack just for shits and giggles, but the music worked so well with the epiphany scene that the producers placed it there. Turns out to be an overblown gag that snowballed out of control, as FOX also had to secure the rights to the song, and Zimmer had to redub it into different languages!

It even became a ''hit single'' in several countries, making it, at a scant 61 seconds, the shortest recording ever to chart.


Added DiffLines:

** A lesser example: Marge's line about what Homer was doing with the pig's "leavings" began as what Matt Groeaning described as "the [[OverlyLongGag world's longest shit joke]]," with Marge giving a LongList of different euphemisms for poop, none of which would register to Homer.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: A ''Simpsons'' movie has been planned since the 1990s, but the writers couldn't figure out how to stretch the plot to feature-film length. Episodes that were considered for a feature-length movie are "Kamp Krusty" (which became the first episode of season four) and "Bonfire of the Manatees" (the first episode of season 17).

Before his death, Creator/PhilHartman had expressed interest in doing a live-action Troy [=McClure=] film.

* DemandOverload: The Simpsonize Me website that was launched concurrently with the movie saw so much traffic during its early life on the internet that it frequently saw downtime. The fact that the site also utilized high-quality animated graphics didn't help either.



* Spoiled By The Merchandise: The [[http://www.spawn.com/toys/product.aspx?product=3249 "What You Lookin' At?" figurine set]] depicts the scene where Bart Simpson and Ned Flanders discover the mutant squirrel. The officially solicited photos of the set at least had the decency to [[http://www.reelcollectibles.co.nz/images-old/simpsons/simpsons_movie_looking.jpg censor the spoiler itself]]◊.
