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.

Bart's anonymous prank calls to Moe were inspired by "The Tube Bar Recordings", tapes of actual prank calls to Louis 'Red' Deutsch, a New Jersey bartender famous for his violent temper (the pranksters, John Elmo and Jim Davidson, got the idea to prank him one day when, while passing his bar, they saw him beating up one of his customers for not drinking fast enough). Louis 'Red' Deutsch would unfailingly respond to the prank calls with a stream of cursing, abuse and threats. Bart's prank calls became less frequent after the first seasons, simply because the writers had a hard time coming up with new ones. See more »

In the episode "The Old Man and the Key" the closing credits are a parody of the ending of The Beverly Hillbillies (1962), with the Simpsons standing in front of a doorway waving at the audience, while banjo music plays. When the Gracie Films logo appears, Lisa is heard saying, in a hillbilly accent, "This has been a Gracie Films Presentation, y'all". 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?
