“One of the most popular animated TV shows in US history, The Simpsons has earned its spot in pop culture history through its parodies of the “Middle American” lifestyle. The show, created by Matt Groening, is a spin-off of a series of animated shorts originally aired on The Tracey Ullman Show and is currently both the longest-running American sitcom and the longest-running American animated program.” (Link)
It is hard to believe that the show started when I was one year old. Around 404 episodes and one movie later (which goes to DVD tomorrow!), the show is still thriving. I have been a fan of this TV show for as long as I can remember. I do admit that I lost my ‘thing’ for the show for a few seasons, but the movie drew me back in. Since the movie — The Simpsons have been part of my Sunday night almost every week.
Happy 19th birthday, and thank you for all of the laughs!
