The Simpsons is a cartoon animation which first aired in 1989 and has grown ever since. It currently hits our screens every night at 6pm on channel 4.
It is set in a fictional town of 'Springfield' and each half hour episode is individual, based on the 'Simpson' family. That is the great thing about Simpson's, you only need to watch one episode at a time to understand what is going on. The Simpson family consists of:
Homer, the beer loving, donut loving Dad of the family is my favourite character, he is a slob and spends his time drinking beer in 'Moes' or working at the Springfield powerplant. He is by far my favourite character!
Marge, is the mum of the Simpson family. I always feel a little sorry for her, she has a lot to cope with in life with a lazy husband like Homer and her bad lad son Bart who I will move on to next...
Bart is probably the most famous son in America. He is a naughty kid at school, always playing jokes and winding up his sister Lisa...
Lisa is Barts younger sister and is the one that doesn't 'fit in' with the rest of the family. She plays the saxophone and is a 'swat' at school. The exact opposite to Bart.
The youngest member of the Simpson family is Maggie, she is a baby and therefore does not speak, just sucks her dummy at the right time!
I think Simpsons has been so popular over the years due to the fantastic writers of the show, it is full of comedy and sometimes even a little political and rude comments designed to go over children's heads but appeals to an adults sense of humour.
Summary: A brilliant cartoon for adults and children
