The Simpson's is one of the most successful shows to ever run on television. From its first moment on air, the series rich characters, subversive themes, and layered humour resounded deeply with audiences both young and old who wanted more from their entertainment than what was being meted out at the time by the likes of "Full House," "Growing Pains," and "Family Matters."
Spawned as an animated short on "The Tracy Ullman Show"- mere filler on the way to commercial breaks - the series grew from a controversial cult favourite to a mainstream powerhouse, and after nineteen years the residents of Springfield no longer simply hold up a mirror to our way of life : they have ingrained themselves into it.
