The Simpsons first premiered in and is the longest-running American scripted sitcom. Fans have learned to love the antics of Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie. The writers of the show seem to have their finger on the pulse of pop culture. During their 31 years of television, the show has predicted some amazingly accurate events.

Before becoming the King, he developed a reputation of a playboy, which angered his mother, Queen Victoria. He was a reformer and modernizer, but also an elitist. Stars: Annette Crosbie, Timothy West, Helen Ryan. This is an animated sitcom about the antics of a dysfunctional family. Homer is the oafish unhealthy beer loving father, Marge is the hardworking homemaker wife, Bart is the perpetual ten-year-old underachiever (and proud of it), Lisa is the unappreciated eight-year-old genius, and Maggie is the cute, pacifier loving silent infant.

When inventor Elon Musk turns up in Springfield, he and Homer soon become firm friends and revolutionise the town's nuclear power plant, but the process costs Mr Burns a lot of money.
The family includes loving, blue-haired matriarch Marge, troublemaking son Bart, overachieving daughter Lisa and baby Maggie.
Other Springfield residents include the family's religious neighbor, Ned Flanders, family physician Dr. Hibbert, Moe the bartender and police chief Clancy Wiggum.
Burns goes under cover at the nuclear power plant and becomes friends with Homer and the gang. Season Dan Castellaneta.
Julie Kavner. He is married to Marge Bouvier , a stereotypical American housewife and mother. They have three children: Bart , a ten-year-old troublemaker and prankster; Lisa , a precocious eight-year-old activist; and Maggie , the baby of the family who rarely speaks, but communicates by sucking on a pacifier.
Although the family is dysfunctional, many episodes examine their relationships and bonds with each other and they are often shown to care about one another.
Grampa Simpson has had starring roles in several episodes. The family also owns a dog, Santa's Little Helper , and a cat, Snowball V , renamed Snowball II in " I, Annoyed Grunt -Bot ".
The show includes an array of quirky supporting characters, which include Homer's co-workers also friends Lenny Leonard and Carl Carlson , the school principal Seymour Skinner and teachers Edna Krabappel and Elizabeth Hoover , neighbor Ned Flanders , friends Barney Gumble , Apu Nahasapeemapetilon , Moe Szyslak , Milhouse Van Houten , and Nelson Muntz , extended relatives Patty and Selma Bouvier , townspeople such as Mayor Quimby , Chief Clancy Wiggum , tycoon Charles Montgomery Burns and his executive assistant Waylon Smithers , and local celebrities Krusty the Clown and news reporter Kent Brockman.
The creators originally intended many of these characters as one-time jokes or for fulfilling needed functions in the town.
A number of them have gained expanded roles and subsequently starred in their own episodes. According to Matt Groening, the show adopted the concept of a large supporting cast from the comedy show SCTV.
Despite the depiction of yearly milestones such as holidays or birthdays passing, the characters do not age between episodes either physically or in stated age , and generally appear just as they did when the series began.
The series uses a floating timeline in which episodes generally take place in the year the episode is produced even though the characters do not age.
Flashbacks and flashforwards do occasionally depict the characters at other points in their lives, with the timeline of these depictions also generally floating relative to the year the episode is produced.
For example, in the episode " I Married Marge ", Bart who is always 10 years old appears to be born in or But in the episode " And Maggie Makes Three ", Maggie who always appears to be around 1 year old appears to be born in or In the episode " Lisa's First Word ", Lisa who is always 8 is shown to have been born in A canon of the show does exist, although Treehouse of Horror episodes and any fictional story told within the series are typically non-canon.
However, continuity is inconsistent and limited in The Simpsons. For example, Krusty the Clown may be able to read in one episode, but not in another — however he is consistently portrayed as being Jewish and that his rabbi father has since died.
Lessons learned by the family in one episode may be forgotten in the next. Some examples of limited continuity include Sideshow Bob's appearances where Bart and Lisa flashback at all the crimes he committed in Springfield or when the characters try to remember things that happened in previous episodes.
The Simpsons takes place in the fictional American town of Springfield in an unknown and impossible-to-determine U. The show is intentionally evasive in regard to Springfield's location.
He "figured out that Springfield was one of the most common names for a city in the U. In anticipation of the success of the show, I thought, 'This will be cool; everyone will think it's their Springfield.
When producer James L. Brooks was working on the television variety show The Tracey Ullman Show , he decided to include small animated sketches before and after the commercial breaks.
Having seen one of cartoonist Matt Groening 's Life in Hell comic strips, Brooks asked Groening to pitch an idea for a series of animated shorts.
Groening initially intended to present an animated version of his Life in Hell series. He therefore chose another approach while waiting in the lobby of Brooks's office for the pitch meeting, hurriedly formulating his version of a dysfunctional family that became the Simpsons.
The Simpson family first appeared as shorts in The Tracey Ullman Show on April 19, However, the animators merely re-traced his drawings, which led to the crude appearance of the characters in the initial shorts.
In , a team of production companies adapted The Simpsons into a half-hour series for the Fox Broadcasting Company. The team included the Klasky Csupo animation house.
Brooks negotiated a provision in the contract with the Fox network that prevented Fox from interfering with the show's content.
The suit said she should receive a share of the profits of The Simpsons  —a claim rejected by the courts. Matt Groening and James L.
Brooks have served as executive producers during the show's entire history, and also function as creative consultants. Sam Simon , described by former Simpsons director Brad Bird as "the unsung hero" of the show,  served as creative supervisor for the first four seasons.
He was constantly at odds with Groening, Brooks and the show's production company Gracie Films and left in The first team of writers, assembled by Sam Simon, consisted of John Swartzwelder , Jon Vitti , George Meyer , Jeff Martin , Al Jean , Mike Reiss , Jay Kogen and Wallace Wolodarsky.
Group rewriting sessions develop final scripts by adding or removing jokes, inserting scenes, and calling for re-readings of lines by the show's vocal performers.
According to long-time writer Jon Vitti , Meyer usually invented the best lines in a given episode, even though other writers may receive script credits.
Credited with sixty episodes, John Swartzwelder is the most prolific writer on The Simpsons. At the end of , the writers of The Simpsons went on strike together with the other members of the Writers Guild of America, East.
The show's writers had joined the guild in The Simpsons has seven main cast members: Dan Castellaneta , Julie Kavner , Nancy Cartwright , Yeardley Smith , Hank Azaria , Harry Shearer , and Tress MacNeille.
Castellaneta voices Homer Simpson , Grampa Simpson , Krusty the Clown , Groundskeeper Willie , Mayor Quimby , Barney Gumble , and other adult, male characters.
Smith had initially been asked to audition for the role of Bart, but casting director Bonita Pietila believed her voice was too high,  so she was given the role of Lisa instead.
Cartwright became more interested in the role of Bart, who was described as "devious, underachieving, school-hating, irreverent, [and] clever".
Azaria, who has been a part of the Simpsons regular voice cast since the second season,  voices recurring characters such as Moe Szyslak , Chief Wiggum , Apu Nahasapeemapetilon and Professor Frink.
Shearer provides voices for Mr. Burns , Mr. Smithers , Principal Skinner , Ned Flanders , Reverend Lovejoy and Dr.
With one exception, episode credits list only the voice actors , and not the characters they voice. Both Fox and the production crew wanted to keep their identities secret during the early seasons and, therefore, closed most of the recording sessions while refusing to publish photos of the recording artists.
The company threatened to replace them with new actors, even going as far as preparing for casting of new voices, but series creator Groening supported the actors in their action.
In addition to the main cast, Pamela Hayden , Tress MacNeille , Marcia Wallace , Maggie Roswell , and Russi Taylor voice supporting characters.
Karl Wiedergott has also appeared in minor roles, but does not voice any recurring characters. Repeat "special guest" cast members include Albert Brooks , Phil Hartman , Jon Lovitz , Joe Mantegna , Maurice LaMarche , and Kelsey Grammer.
Following Taylor's death in , her characters including Sherri, Terri , and Martin Prince are now voiced by Grey Griffin. Episodes will quite often feature guest voices from a wide range of professions, including actors, athletes, authors, bands, musicians and scientists.
In the earlier seasons, most of the guest stars voiced characters, but eventually more started appearing as themselves. Tony Bennett was the first guest star to appear as himself, appearing briefly in the season two episode " Dancin' Homer ".
The Simpsons has been dubbed into several other languages , including Japanese, German, Spanish, and Portuguese. It is also one of the few programs dubbed in both standard French and Quebec French.
For example, Homer drinks soda instead of beer and eats Egyptian beef sausages instead of hot dogs. Because of such changes, the Arabized version of the series met with a negative reaction from the lifelong Simpsons fans in the area.
Several different U. Throughout the run of the animated shorts on The Tracey Ullman Show, the animation was produced domestically at Klasky Csupo.
For the first three seasons, Klasky Csupo animated The Simpsons in the United States. In , the show's production company, Gracie Films, switched domestic production to Film Roman ,  who continued to animate the show until In Season 14 , production switched from traditional cel animation to digital ink and paint.
Animators used digital ink and paint during production of the season 12 episode " Tennis the Menace ", but Gracie Films delayed the regular use of digital ink and paint until two seasons later.
The already completed "Tennis the Menace" was broadcast as made. The production staff at the U. The overseas studios then draw the inbetweens , ink and paint , and render the animation to tape before it is shipped back to the United States to be delivered to Fox three to four months later.
The series began high-definition production in Season 20; the first episode, " Take My Life, Please ", aired February 15, The move to HDTV included a new opening sequence.
The Simpsons uses the standard setup of a situational comedy, or sitcom, as its premise. The series centers on a family and their life in a typical American town,  serving as a satirical parody of a middle class American lifestyle.
The town of Springfield acts as a complete universe in which characters can explore the issues faced by modern society.
By having Homer work in a nuclear power plant, the show can comment on the state of the environment. The town features a vast array of media channels—from kids' television programming to local news, which enables the producers to make jokes about themselves and the entertainment industry.
Some commentators say the show is political in nature and susceptible to a left-wing bias. In The Simpsons , politicians are corrupt, ministers such as Reverend Lovejoy are dismissive to churchgoers, and the local police force is incompetent.
The Simpsons ' opening sequence is one of the show's most memorable hallmarks. The standard opening has gone through three iterations a replacement of some shots at the start of the second season, and a brand new sequence when the show switched to high-definition in Each has the same basic sequence of events: the camera zooms through cumulus clouds , through the show's title towards the town of Springfield.
The camera then follows the members of the family on their way home. Upon entering their house, the Simpsons settle down on their couch to watch television.
The original opening was created by David Silverman , and was the first task he did when production began on the show. This piece has been noted by Elfman as the most popular of his career.
One of the most distinctive aspects of the opening is that three of its elements change from episode to episode: Bart writes different things on the school chalkboard,  Lisa plays different solos on her saxophone or occasionally a different instrument , and different gags accompany the family as they enter their living room to sit on the couch.
The special Halloween episode has become an annual tradition. Although the Treehouse series is meant to be seen on Halloween, this changed by the s and again in , when new installments have premiered after Halloween due to Fox 's current contract with Major League Baseball 's World Series.
The show's humor turns on cultural references that cover a wide spectrum of society so that viewers from all generations can enjoy the show.
Such references, for example, come from movies , television, music , literature, science , and history. The audience may often not notice the visual jokes in a single viewing.
Some are so fleeting that they become apparent only by pausing a video recording of the show or viewing it in slow motion.
One of Bart's early hallmarks was his prank calls to Moe's Tavern owner Moe Szyslak in which Bart calls Moe and asks for a gag name.
Moe tries to find that person in the bar, but soon realizes it is a prank call and angrily threatens Bart. These calls were apparently based on a series of prank calls known as the Tube Bar recordings , though Groening has denied any causal connection.
The show uses catchphrases , and most of the primary and secondary characters have at least one each. Burns' "Excellent" and Nelson Muntz 's " Ha -ha!
The use of many of these catchphrases has declined in recent seasons. The episode " Bart Gets Famous " mocks catchphrase-based humor, as Bart achieves fame on the Krusty the Clown Show solely for saying "I didn't do it.
The Simpsons has gained notoriety for jokes that eventually became reality. Perhaps the most famous example comes from the episode " Bart to the Future ", which mentions billionaire Donald Trump having been President of the United States at one time and leaving the nation broke.
The episode first aired in , sixteen years before Trump was elected. Nineteen years later, Disney purchased Fox.
A number of neologisms that originated on The Simpsons have entered popular vernacular. The staff of The Simpsons told Castellaneta to shorten the noise, and it went on to become the well-known exclamation in the television series.
Groundskeeper Willie 's description of the French as " cheese-eating surrender monkeys " was used by National Review columnist Jonah Goldberg in , after France's opposition to the proposed invasion of Iraq.
The phrase quickly spread to other journalists. It has been used in media, such as New Scientist magazine. The Oxford Dictionary of Modern Quotations includes several quotations from the show.
As well as "cheese-eating surrender monkeys", Homer's lines, "Kids, you tried your best and you failed miserably.
The lesson is never try", from " Burns' Heir " season five , as well as "Kids are the best, Apu. You can teach them to hate the things you hate. And they practically raise themselves, what with the Internet and all", from " Eight Misbehavin' " season 11 , , entered the dictionary in August The Simpsons was the first successful animated program in American prime time since Wait Till Your Father Gets Home in the s.
The Simpsons changed this perception,  initially leading to a short period where networks attempted to recreate prime-time cartoon success with shows like Capitol Critters , Fish Police , and Family Dog , which were expensive and unsuccessful.
The success of The Simpsons and the lower production cost prompted US television networks to take chances on other adult animated series.
As far as I'm concerned, they basically re-invented the wheel. They created what is in many ways—you could classify it as—a wholly new medium. The Simpsons has had crossovers with four other shows.
In the episode " A Star Is Burns ", Marge invites Jay Sherman, the main character of The Critic , to be a judge for a film festival in Springfield.
Matt Groening had his name removed from the episode since he had no involvement with The Critic. The Simpsons has also influenced live-action shows like Malcolm in the Middle , which featured the use of sight gags and did not use a laugh track unlike most sitcoms.
Ricky Gervais called The Simpsons an influence on The Office ,  and fellow British sitcom Spaced was, according to its director Edgar Wright , "an attempt to do a live-action The Simpsons.
The cable television network FXX , a sibling of 20th Television and formerly the Fox network, has exclusive cable and digital syndication rights for The Simpsons.
Original contracts had previously stated that syndication rights for The Simpsons would not be sold to cable until the series conclusion, at a time when cable syndication deals were highly rare.
The series has been syndicated to local broadcast stations in nearly all markets throughout the United States since September FXX premiered The Simpsons on their network on August 21, by starting a twelve-day marathon which featured the first episodes every single episode that had already been released at the time aired chronologically, including The Simpsons Movie , which FX Networks had already owned the rights to air.
It was the longest continuous marathon in the history of television until VH1 Classic aired a hour, nineteen-day, marathon of Saturday Night Live in ; celebrating that program's 40th anniversary.
After Disney acquired both 20th Television and FX Networks, it was announced that The Simpsons would air on the company's Freeform channel starting October 2, On October 21, , a digital service courtesy of the FXNOW app, called Simpsons World , launched.
Simpsons World with every episode of the series accessible to authenticated FX subscribers, and is available on game consoles such as Xbox One , streaming devices such as Roku and Apple TV , and online via web browser.
Hulu streams the latest episodes of season 31 next day. The season 3 premiere " Stark Raving Dad ", which features Michael Jackson as the voice of Leon Kompowsky, was pulled out of rotation in by Matt Groening, James L.
Brooks and Al Jean after HBO aired the documentary Leaving Neverland , in which two men share details into how Jackson allegedly abused them as children.
However, the episode is still available on The Complete Third Season DVD box set released on August 26, In July , all episodes from seasons 4 to 19 were made available for purchase on the iTunes Store in Canada.
The Simpsons was the Fox network's first television series to rank among a season's top 30 highest-rated shows. In the early s, millions of T-shirts featuring Bart were sold;  as many as one million were sold on some days.
Who the hell are you? ET on Sunday night to the same time on Thursday, where it competed with The Cosby Show on NBC , the number one show at the time.
Bart" rivalry. The rating is based on the number of household televisions that were tuned into the show, but Nielsen Media Research estimated that At the time, it was the most watched episode in the history of the Fox Network,  and it is still the highest rated episode in the history of The Simpsons.
The Simpsons has received overwhelmingly positive reviews from critics, and it has been noted for being described as "the most irreverent and unapologetic show on the air.
It's this neat paradox that makes millions of people turn away from the three big networks on Sunday nights to concentrate on The Simpsons.
While The Simpsons has the record for the number of episodes by an American animated show, other animated series have surpassed The Simpsons.
In , Fox began a year-long celebration of the show titled "Best. One of the first parts of the celebration is the "Unleash Your Yellow" contest in which entrants must design a poster for the show.
On Ice! As of the twenty-first season — , The Simpsons became the longest-running American scripted primetime television series, having surpassed the — run of Gunsmoke.
On April 29, , The Simpsons also surpassed Gunsmoke ' s episode count with the episode " Forgive and Regret.
On February 6, , it was announced that The Simpsons has been renewed for seasons 31 and The Simpsons has won dozens of awards since it debuted as a series, including 34 Primetime Emmy Awards ,  34 Annie Awards  and a Peabody Award.
On January 14, , the Simpsons were awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Furthermore, viewers of the UK television channel Channel 4 have voted The Simpsons at the top of two polls: 's Greatest Kids' TV shows,  and 's The Greatest Cartoons,  with Homer Simpson voted into first place in 's Greatest TV Characters.
Bart's rebellious, bad boy nature, which underlies his misbehavior and rarely leads to any punishment, led some people to characterize him as a poor role model for children.
In response, Matt Groening said, "That sums up Bart, all right. Most people are in a struggle to be normal [and] he thinks normal is very boring, and does things that others just wished they dare do.
Bush said, "We are going to keep on trying to strengthen the American family, to make American families a lot more like the Waltons and a lot less like the Simpsons.
We're praying for an end to the Depression, too. Various episodes of the show have generated controversy. The Simpsons visit Australia in " Bart vs.
Australia " season six , and Brazil in " Blame It on Lisa " season 13 , and both episodes generated controversy and negative reaction in the visited countries.
He felt that it was just an advertisement for The Critic , and that people would incorrectly associate the show with him. When he was unsuccessful in getting the episode pulled, he had his name removed from the credits and went public with his concerns, openly criticizing James L.
Brooks and saying the episode "violates the Simpsons' universe. Many fans and critics reacted negatively to the revelation that Seymour Skinner , a recurring character since the first season, was an impostor.
The episode has been criticized by Groening and by Harry Shearer , who provides the voice of Skinner. In a interview, Shearer recalled that after reading the script, he told the writers, "That's so wrong.
You're taking something that an audience has built eight years or nine years of investment in and just tossed it in the trash can for no good reason, for a story we've done before with other characters.
It's so arbitrary and gratuitous, and it's disrespectful to the audience. The show has reportedly been taken off the air in several countries.
China banned it from prime-time television in August , "in an effort to protect China's struggling animation studios. However, the court decision later dismissed this request.
Critics' reviews of early Simpsons episodes praised the show for its sassy humor, wit, realism, and intelligence. Some critics started calling the show "tired".
Schembri wrote in "The central tragedy of The Simpsons is that it has gone from commanding attention to merely being attention-seeking.
It began by proving that cartoon characters don't have to be caricatures; they can be invested with real emotions. Now the show has in essence fermented into a limp parody of itself.
Memorable story arcs have been sacrificed for the sake of celebrity walk-ons and punchline-hungry dialogue. In , the BBC noted "the common consensus is that The Simpsons ' golden era ended after season nine ",  and Todd Leopold of CNN, in an article looking at its perceived decline, stated "for many fans Mike Scully , who was showrunner during seasons nine through twelve , has been the subject of criticism.
Episodes that once would have ended with Homer and Marge bicycling into the sunset now end with Homer blowing a tranquilizer dart into Marge's neck.
The show's still funny, but it hasn't been touching in years. Once you've done that you can go on forever. Al Jean , showrunner since season thirteen, has also been the subject of criticism, with some arguing that the show has continued to decline in quality under his tenure.
Former writers have complained that under Jean, the show is "on auto-pilot", "too sentimental", and the episodes are "just being cranked out.
But honestly, I've been here the whole time and I do remember in season two people saying, 'It's gone downhill.
I'm glad we didn't. In , cast member Harry Shearer criticized what he perceived as the show's declining quality: "I rate the last three seasons as among the worst, so season four looks very good to me now.
I think Harry's issue is that the show isn't as grounded as it was in the first three or four seasons, that it's gotten crazy or a little more madcap.
I think it organically changes to stay fresh. I think it's possible that the show will get too financially cumbersome The animation is incredibly detailed and imaginative, the stories do things that we haven't done before, so creatively there's no reason to quit.
In , popular culture writer Anna Leszkiewicz suggested that even though The Simpsons still holds cultural relevance, contemporary appeal is only for the first ten seasons, with recent episodes only garnering mainstream attention when a favorite character from the golden era is killed off, or when new information and shock twists are given for old characters.
Alan Sepinwall and Matt Zoller Seitz argued in their book titled TV The Book that the peak of The Simpsons are "roughly seasons [three through twelve]", and that despite the decline, episodes from the later seasons such as " Eternal Moonshine of the Simpson Mind " and " Holidays of Future Passed " could be considered on par with the earlier classic episodes, further stating that "even if you want to call the show today a thin shadow of its former self, think about how mind-boggingly great its former self had to be for so-diminished a version to be watchable at all.
In , Uproxx writer Josh Kurp stated that while he agrees with the sentiment that The Simpsons is not as good as it used to be, it is because "it was working at a level of comedy and characterization that no show ever has.
The stereotypical nature of the character Apu Nahasapeemapetilon has long been the subject of controversy. This was particularly highlighted by Indian-American comedian Hari Kondabolu 's documentary The Problem with Apu.
In the film, Kondabolu states that as a child he was a fan of The Simpsons and liked Apu, but he now finds the character's stereotypical nature troublesome.
Defenders of the character responded that the show is built on comical stereotypes, with creator Matt Groening saying, "that's the nature of cartooning.
Groening stated at the same time that the character would remain in the show. The criticisms were referenced in the season 29 episode " No Good Read Goes Unpunished ", when Lisa breaks the fourth wall and addresses the audience by saying, "Something that started decades ago and was applauded and inoffensive is now politically incorrect.
What can you do? In October , it was reported that Apu would be written out of the show,  which Groening denied.
On June 26, , in light of the various Black Lives Matter protests , Fox announced that non-white characters such as Carl Carlson and Dr. Hibbert , among others will no longer be voiced by white actors.
Numerous Simpson-related comic books have been released over the years. So far, nine comic book series have been published by Bongo Comics since Brooks, Al Jean, George Meyer, Mike Reiss , John Swartzwelder , Jon Vitti , David Mirkin , Mike Scully , Matt Selman , and Ian Maxtone-Graham.
James L. Brooks originally thought that the story of the episode " Kamp Krusty " was suitable for a film, but he encountered difficulties in trying to expand the script to feature-length.
On August 10, , 20th Century Fox announced that a sequel is in development. Collections of original music featured in the series have been released on the albums Songs in the Key of Springfield , Go Simpsonic with The Simpsons and The Simpsons: Testify.
The song was written by Michael Jackson , although he did not receive any credit. In , it was officially announced that The Simpsons Ride , a simulator ride , would be implemented into the Universal Studios Orlando and Universal Studios Hollywood.
However, Sideshow Bob is loose from prison to get revenge on Krusty and the Simpson family. Numerous video games based on the show have been produced.
Some of the early games include Konami 's arcade game The Simpsons and Acclaim Entertainment 's The Simpsons: Bart vs. The popularity of The Simpsons has made it a billion-dollar merchandising industry.
The Simpsons has been used as a theme for special editions of well-known board games, including Clue , Scrabble , Monopoly , Operation , and The Game of Life , as well as the trivia games What Would Homer Do?
Several card games such as trump cards and The Simpsons Trading Card Game have also been released. Many official or unofficial Simpsons books such as episode guides have been published.
Many episodes of the show have been released on DVD and VHS over the years. When the first season DVD was released in , it quickly became the best-selling television DVD in history, although it was later overtaken by the first season of Chappelle's Show.
However, on April 19, , Al Jean announced that the Season 17 DVD would be the last one ever produced, leaving the collection from Seasons 1 to 17, Season 20 released out of order in , with Seasons 18, 19, and 21 onwards unreleased.
In , about companies around the world were licensed to use Simpsons characters in their advertising. These included "Buzz Cola", "Krusty-O" cereal, pink doughnuts with sprinkles, and "Squishees".
By , 20th Century Fox had greatly increased merchandising efforts. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This article is about the television series.
