The Simpsons creator Matt Groening has caved in to pressure to re-release the first episodes of his hit animated show. Groening originally vowed never to show the first cartoon short - which premiered on the TRACEY ULLMAN SHOW - because he was embarrassed by the poor quality of the drawings and lacklustre script. He is now in negotiations with mobile phone companies to release them with streaming video, insisting, "It's a format crummy enough to do those primitive episodes the justice they deserve."
