The Simpsons is an animated sitcom about the antics of a dysfunctional family called the Simpsons (surprise surprise). Homer is the oafish unhealthy beer loving father, Marge is the hardworking homemaker wife, Bart is the 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.

Actor Frank Sivero attempted to sue 20th Century Fox for $250 million because he claimed Fat Tony sidekick, "Louie" was based on the character "Frankie Carbone" from 1990 Scorsese Mobster movie "GoodFellas". He claimed he had "created" Frankie Carbone especially for GoodFellas, however due to the lack of proof the lawsuit was dismissed. See more »

On the Halloween specials starting with II and with the exception of VI, the theme is played on an organ. When the Gracie Films logo appears, the "Shh!" Is replaced by a sound bite of a woman screaming and the accompanying jingle is played on a pipe organ. See more »
The Simpsons is a show that has sustained ten years of constant humor. The stories have gradually become better and the second fiddle characters were getting more screen time which translates into a much more realized show. The pop culture references abound and delight those who can pick them out. My personal favorite is the Citizen Kane references in the episode called "Rosebud." Plus, anything with C. Montgomery Burns is hysterical. The guest stars aren't there as a "special appearance" touted by the networks. They actually work into the storyline, and that makes it all the more enjoyable. Where else can you see The Moody Blues acting like thugs in a Vegas casino?
