This is an animated sitcom about the antics of a dysfunctional family. Homer is the oafish unhealthy beer loving father, Marge is the hardworking homemaker wife, Bart is the perpetual 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.Written by
In the Simpsons shorts on The Tracey Ullman Show (1987), Homer was voiced by John Ratzenberger. Since The Simpsons became their own show, Homer has been voiced by Dan Castellaneta. But during season two, Dan started to find doing Homer's voice was hard, so he asked if he could do the voice in a higher pitch, and his request was accepted. In season twenty-six, when The Simpsons met their old selves, John Ratzenberger had to step in for the voice of the older version of Homer, as Dan Castellaneta found he couldn't pull off the voice of that character anymore.

When the animated TV series "The Simpsons" first came out, nobody could image how successful it would become. But they made this a clever TV series: that original family with their silly humor conquered many people. From 1989 until (maybe) almost the end of the 1990's, this was a great TV show. It was very humorous, highly creative and had all the needed ingredients to be a classic.
All of the characters are very peculiar and eccentric: Bart, Lisa, Marge and Homer. On the other hand, Maggie is innocent because she's a baby. Marge has that weird hair and Homer is more than just the silliest of all Simpsons: he's the silliest "family chief" ever!
However, in these last years "The Simpsons" has been notoriously going downhill. It isn't that great anymore. It doesn't have that classic status any longer and its humor has become more irritating. It isn't so funny anymore.
Now is definitely time to put an end to this TV show. They should have done that years ago. The more time they'll take to finally do it, the more they'll ruin it.
