More About The Simpsons Show
On December 17, 1989 Matt Groening made television history with his animated television show The Simpsons. For twenty four years now viewers have been tuning in to watch the antics of the loveable and dysfunctional Simpson family.
The Simpsons has been breaking records ever since it started with over five hundred episodes to it’s credit, a full length movie, and billions of dollars worth of merchandise sold. The catchphrases from characters like Homer to the incorrigible Bart have been printed on t-shirts, boxers posters and even talking dolls. Along with the movie they have even had video games, comic books and board games made with the characters.
The show has also led to many other animated adult-oriented comedies such as Family Guy, South Park, and American Dad. It has also been controversial over the years with many people thinking that it is a bad influence on young people and it makes a mockery of family life. Some countries, such as China have went so far as to even ban the show. What The Simpsons does is show what most families are like not perfect, but real. As long as the show keeps pulling in viewers it would seem that Bart and his family are here to stay, for awhile at least.
