Simpsons merchandise sweatshop conditions


The hit show and its lucrative merchandise are made: sweatshop conditions for its animators; unsafe conditions for producers of its apparel; boxes sealed with the tongue of a disembodied dolphin head; the center holes popped out of its DVDs with the horn of a shackled, emaciated unicorn.

Are viewers meant to draw conclusions about our own complicity as we consumers indirectly fund companies that enslave people overseas?
