I recently watched the Simpsons episode "Homer's Night Out" (S1E10) and noticed that Homer's voice was much lower than the latest episodes in Season 26. I saw that the same voice actor was in both, presumably voicing Homer. So why is his voice so different?
The earliest episode I can find where Homer's voice sounds the same as it does now is Season 8 Episode 1 but I haven't seen any episodes in seasons 2 through 7.
I have two questions regarding this.
1) Why is Homer's voice deeper in the earlier episodes? 2) When did his voice change to how it is now?
Can anyone answer this? It would be really helpful as I'm quite curious.
