Simpsons Hockey Jerseys 2012 davesgeekyhockey davesgeekyideas

These are facsimiles of the jerseys Bart and Lisa wore in the classic Lisa on Ice episode, which aired back in 1994 (coincidentally at a time when FOX started broadcasting NHL games). You can read all about the episode here.

As you can see no logos, names, or numbers — just like the animation models from the episode. These plain designs make life a lot easier for the animators, I tell you whut.

There were logos in the episode on the boards and score clock for both the Mighty Pigs (blue jersey) and the Kwik-E-Mart Gougers (green jersey), but I decided not to include them on the jerseys, for the sake of authenticity. For Lisa’s jersey, I made the arm stripes go all the way to the collar, whereas her teammates the stripe only went to the shoulder for some reason.

I could make these unopposed by FOX, given their plain nature*. The question is does anyone want something so simple-looking?

*That’s why so many jersey companies sell plain uncrested NHL, NBA, and NFL (etc.) jerseys without a license; because the jerseys are simply a composition of colors and patterns. It’s the logos that are infringing and drive up the value.
