The Simpsons have been on for television for over 25 years. It is the kind of show our parents grew up with and now even we are watching it. For those of you who don’t know, the Simpsons is an animated comedy. The show features a set of unique characters which includes Homer Simpson who is a father and husband who works lazily at work and at home eats himself sick. Marge Simpson is a hard working mother who enjoys baking and nags her children excessively, but often is the voice of reason. Bart Simpson is a rebel in the fourth grade who can’t get into enough trouble. Lisa Simpson is a smart and witty girl who is in the second grade and plays the tuba. Maggie Simpson is a baby in the show and her only role is to suck her pacifier. The show features many other characters that make the show absolutely hilarious!
It is interesting to watch the episodes throughout the years and see how times have changed. In the older episodes, you will see telephones and now you will see smart phones. The show has changed with the times, but the characters have not. The characters do act and the time is set in today’s time, but Lisa Simpson was eight twenty-five years ago and now she is still eight. The characters age has never changed!
You can watch the show five nights a week on FXX or new episodes every Sunday night air on Fox.
