What is The Simpsons About?
Now the longest-running comedy in television history, THE SIMPSONS immediately struck a chord with viewers across the country over 20 years ago as it poked fun of itself and everything in its wake. With its subversive humor and delightful wit, the series, entering its 22nd season, has made an indelible imprint on American pop culture, and the family members have become television icons.
The Simpsons reside in the town of Springfield. HOMER works as a safety inspector at the local nuclear power plant; MARGE tries to keep the peace in her family; BART is the mischievous 10-year-old hellion; 8-year-old LISA is the intelligent, saxophone-playing, vegetarian member of the family; and baby MAGGIE conveys emotions via pacifier sucks.
Dan Castellaneta, Julie Kavner, Nancy Cartwright, Yeardley Smith, Hank Azaria, Harry Shearer.
