The History of The Simpsons

in: hosted by Rebecca Brayton

The History of The Simpsons A satirical parody of the American working-class lifestyle, this show was originally pitched as a series of animated shorts by Matt Groening in 1987. Debuting as 60-second spots for the variety series “The Tracey Ullman Show”, 20th Century Fox gave it its first half-hour episode on December 17th, 1989. Instantly acclaimed by critics, and loved by audiences of all ages, the cartoons detailed the average American lives of a family based in the fictional community of Springfield. Together, these characters and their situations lampooned many aspects of American culture, society, politics and history. Remarkably, this one of a kind program continues to make us laugh and reinvent itself for new audiences over two decades after its creation.
