15 Literary References in The Simpsons

By | Culture, Television | No Comments
The Simpsons is an animated television series about a dysfunctional-yet-loving family living in the fictional town of Springfield. The family consists of Homer, the father, and Marge, the mother, and their three children- Bart, Lisa, and Maggie. The creator, Matt Groening, came up with the concept of a satirical look at the American family in the late 1980s and, along with producer James. L. Brooks, created a series of animated shorts. These short cartoons were first shown on the Tracy Ullman Show on the 19th of April 1987, and after 3 seasons on there, it was commissioned for a half hour stand-alone television show for prime time.

Still going strong today, The Simpsons is now the longest running animated series on television, and the longest running American sitcom.
