Disney + arrived in Mexico and Latin America yesterday, and it seems that the public is already angry with this streaming platform. One of the most striking aspects of the service is the long catalog of Fox properties, such as The Simpsons. Now many were surprised to note that the only content related to this yellow family, are seasons 29 and 30, something that was not to the liking of new users.
In an interview with Milenio, Diego Lerner, president of The Walt Disney Company in Latin America, revealed that this decision is due to the fact that the first seasons of The Simpsons have an irreverent touch that can break the familiar image of the streaming platform. At the moment it is unknown if we will see more seasons of the series on Disney +, or people will still need Channel 7 and Fox Channel to revisit the classic episodes of the beloved show.
For its part, the public is not happy with this decision and they have shared a series of memes to mock and criticize this unfortunate situation.

On related issues, this is how Netflix welcomed Disney + in Mexico. Similarly, a reboot of Darkwing Duck is already in development.
