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
This show has, since the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center, been the subject of numerous conspiracy theories, including one that it "predicted" the tragedy, based upon various shots of the numbers "9" and "11" in the season nine opener, "City of New York vs. Homer Simpson", and a fan-fiction theory (not connected to the official show) that the Blue-Haired Lawyer character, having a New York City accent, had become so obsessed with law and order because he was upset about the loss of his own family in the Twin Towers bombing. There was a segment of this show as well which featured Homer rushing around between Tower 1 and Tower 2, trying to locate a bathroom while hoping that the police wouldn't tow away his car, but after 9/11, this segment was removed until its DVD release, out of sympathy for victims of the attacks in real-life. There is another segment in which Selma Bouvier admits to kissing Springfield's news anchorman Kent Brockman, to which he replies, "oh yeah, everyone did crazy things during 9/11". This segment has never been cut, unlike the Homer World Trade Center segment. See more »

Out of every cartoon, Movie, play, and T.v show I've ever seen The Simpsons tops it all. the Simpsons is the funniest show Bar None. American Dad, Futurama, and Family guy come in close but in my opinion the Simpsons is better than all of them combined. I have seen every single episode and i own seasons one through five and have Simpsons posters and action figures.i have not found an episode that i did not like., some of my favorites are the valentines episode where Bart puts Homers Beer in the paint shakers, and "Das Bus" season 9 "O' Brother were art Thou?" season 2. and any episode from the sixteenth season. they have made it to over three hundred episodes and I'm betting on three hundred more. THE SIMPSONS WILL NEVER DIE!
