All Things Simpsons - Homer, Marge, Lisa, Bart, plus more
The Simpsons Humor Collection
The Simpsons are a national icon of animated humor (in my opinion) and allow us to poke fun at ourselves through their satire, social commentary, and just plain silly humor. All your favorites are here; Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and all the rest!
Includes favorite Simpsons quotes, videos, lists, humor and much more.
Simpsons in the Beginning!
The Simpsons family debuted in short animated cartoons on The Tracey Ullman Show before being spun off into their own half-hour series.
These shorts, also called "bumpers", aired before and after commercial breaks during the first three seasons of the show.

The Sublety of The Simpsons Humor
For all the goofy, in-your-face humor of The Simpsons, the writers had also incorporated very high level humor that is not often picked up the first time you watch an episode. This makes it worth watching more than once!
Episode: 3F09 Two Bad Neighbors
Grandpa: "Grover Cleveland spanked me on two non-consecutive occasions."
Explanation:Cleveland was the only President of the US to serve two non-consecutive terms.
Episode: a Halloween special
Kang [running for President]: Abortions for all! [crowd boos]
Very well, Abortions for none! [crowd boos]
Abortions for some, miniature American flags for the others! [crowd cheers]
Episode: 8F09 Burns Verkaufen der Kraftwerk
Mayor: "Ich bin ein Springfielder." Homer: "Mmmmm. Jelly Donuts."
Explanation: "Ich bin ein Springfielder" is an allusion to JFK's speech in West Berlin in which he said, "Ich bin ein Berliner" ("I am a Berliner"). A "Berliner," however, is not only someone from Berlin, but also a German word for Jelly Donut.
Episode: 9F22 Cape Fear
When Sideshow Bob is in court, accused of trying to kill Bart, the lawyer says to him on the stand, But what about that tattoo on your chest? Doesn't it say, "Die Bart, Die?"
Sideshow Bob: "No, That's German for, 'The Bart, The."
Someone in the courtroom then whispers, "No one who speaks German could be an evil man."
Episode: 2F15 Lisa's Wedding
Lisa: Beautiful dinnerware, Mrs. Parkfield.
Mrs. Parkfield: Thank you, Lisa. They were made for the finest family in Britain.
Mr. Parkfield: I don't know how we ended up with them.
Lisa:[thinking] Uh oh. Should I laugh? Was that dry British wit, or subtle self-pity?
Spider Pig, Spider Pig, does whatever a Spider Pig does!
Listen to the Spider Pig song!
The Simpsons Movie Trailer
I thought the Simpsons movie was pretty funny. However, I think there have been many funnier episodes over the years. In a way, the movie seemed more like a long episode than a movie.

Listen carefully to the closing credits for the episode "Lisa the Vegetarian". If played backwards, you'll get a lentil soup recipe read by Paul McCartney, who guest starred on the episode

Maggie scans as $847.63 in the supermarket at the beginning (not NRA4EVER, as Troy Maclure asserts in 3F31 "The Simpsons 138th Episode Spectacular), the price it costs to feed and care for the average American baby every month.

In 1998, Time magazine selected Bart Simpson as 46th of the 100 most influential people of the 20th century, and the only fictional character to make the list.
2007 marked the 20th anniversary of The Simpsons franchise. If real, Bart would be in his 30's. Thankfully, they're animated!
During this time they have won 23 Emmy Awards, 26 Annie Awards and a Peabody Award!
The Simpson Name - The name Simpson means "son of a simpleton", which is the reason it was chosen.
The Simpsons holds the record for most guest stars; it is also the only non-variety show to have had appearances from three former Beatles (Paul, George and Ringo).
Evergreen Terrace, the street the Simpsons live on, is also the street Matt Groening grew up on in Portland, Oregon.
Many of the characters in the show are named after streets in Portland, Oregon. These include Flanders, Kearney, Lovejoy, Quimby and Terwilliger (Sideshow Bob).
