Am I going out of my mind, or were the Simpsons a greeny-yellow in the old days.

I wonder if this might be what Spinal was referring to -


The really old, original Simpson's cartoon filmstock has not aged well and the colour is now slightly off, however technically they have always been the same yellow colour -

I remember having a VHS tape of some season 1 episodes with Nelson bullying Bart and the work picnic, I remember it being very bright greeny-yellow...

I do know that, when the show switched to being digitally painted, there was a definite change in the vibrancy of the colours.
Perhaps it was just the film/paints that made the yellow seem off, at times.

Yesterday a television presenter was talking about how greyish older(90's) video's were.

The simpsons when they were first aired were yellow but not drawn that polished. Maybe a problem with the tape or the player/tv?

On Channel 4+1 the Simpsons are greenish yellow right now.

I'm sure they were slightly greeny in the first season - maybe luminous yellow might be closer to my memories of them then
