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.

Although Bart's middle initial of 'J' has since been confirmed to stand for "Jo-Jo", early in the show's life some sources incorrectly suggested that it stood for "Jebediah", after the town's founder, Jebediah Springfield. This same error was also sometimes attributed to Homer's middle initial of "J", which has since been confirmed to stand for "Jay". See more »
Chief Wiggum's proper hair color is blue. A common animation error is for it to be black in certain scenes (this generally happens in night scenes, or other scenes in dark places.) See more »
In the musical episode where (the cheesy clip show), Snake does a voiceover at the end of the credits where he shoots his gun every time the music starts to play not liking it. He even shoots the Gracie film logo saying "You too Gracie film dude... Yaaa!" 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?
