I love Tracey Ullman and I don't know why the Queen hasn't honored her yet with some kind of British Honor. I remember when I first saw her in the video of They Don't Know About Us with Paul McCartney MBE before he was knighted many years ago. The network brought Tracey Ullman who is a great talent to create a sketch show which she played everything from a teenager to an old woman. She did everything without being vulgar, difficult, or cruel. I loved it when she and Dan Castellnata played a yuppie married couple who discover that their young son is normal and not a genius at school. Tracey also introduced the Simpsons to the world. Of course, it was 30 minute show and I felt that it wasn't enough time to get everything in. I think the show would have fared better if it was expanded to an hour. Still, I remember that show fondly as one of Fox's early efforts.
