as Cult as can be , from the first frame to Big screen
7 December 2007 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

The Simpsons is here! Born and put on frames so the world can enjoy the birth of Worlds most watched and entertaining Cartoon series of all time. In this premiere with the Family of 5 we get to them close at night starts to break in. Marge and Homer tucks the children in while singing lullabies to them. It gives the children different feelings and night creeps with a result that the Family all of them ends up in the master-bed which gives the children ease and rest from their mares. Many fun looks and views of how the characters was drawn in this early premiere of 4 minutes of an alternative cartooned family in 1987. The Tracey Ullman Show had a total of 48 episodes with The Simpsons during 1987-1989 and got their own Airing of "The real Simpson's". After almost 20 years drawing cartoons adapted for TV there was in 2007 "Simpsons The Movie" came and overwhelmed the audience in the Cinemas on BIG screen for the first time, and I took many deep breaths and grasped this movie to the max . Shivering and speechless I floated out with the knowing/hope for a sequel which Maggie's first word was at the end of the Feature. From 1987 to today I love Simpson's like I first did when I started to follow the series back in the 90's , when Swedish TV day after day rolled episodes after another with reruns and reruns The Swedish people consumed the Family EVERY DAY :) Fan as I am from all the years I follow The Simpsons with total respect to the writers , especially Matt Groening and Dan Castellaneta, names i pronounced wrong for 18 years. I'd like to see more from these Men with all my heart and soul wrapped in every detail for future projects. And I would like to say Hi! and Thank you Mr. Groening for all these years of entertainment and I look forward to more of what you got to give. Bless you and all of the involved staff/members for all the years that has gone. Thank You , have a good one :) Cheers from a very simple guy in Sweden with good and lots of humor.

PS. forgive me for my medium knowledge in the English language , please correct me
