About Simpsons

The Simpsons is an animated TV series by Matt Groening. It is a parody of the working-class American lifestyle and is set in a fictional town of Springfield.

The main characters are the members of the titular Simpsons family. Homer is a lovable buffoon who's favorite activity is sitting on a couch, watching TV, and drinking beer. Marge is a stereotypical suburban housewife, who often plays Straight Woman in contrast to Homer's silly antics. Their kids are Bart, a notorious troublemaker, Lisa, a model student, and Maggie, who is usually shown sucking her pacifier. There also are many other important recurring characters, such as Homer's boss, Mr. Burns, or his ultra-religious neighbor, Flanders.

The show has been going on since 1989, won a big number of awards including 25 Primetime Emmy Awards, 26 Annie Awards and a Peabody Award and is the longest-running American animated program.

      South Park is much better than Simpsons, now the simpsons are bored, the new episodes sucks, But South Park touches the issues of today's society, in all the episodes, racism, homosexuality, religions, etc.

      South Park is the better show, that's pretty damn obvious. Simpsons are washed-up and have been for quite some time now. South Park is totally original, they didn't mimic Simpsons like how Family Guy had and with American Dad being stemmed off from Family Guy and Futurama stemming off of the Simpsons...none of those shows have any creativity behind them. Only South Park and Simpsons are the most creative and in that comparison- South Park IS MY LIFE. I freaking LOVE South Park and always will.

      I love the characterization, the plotlines, and the humor of the Simpsons. I don't think there's any other animated show that's quite like it! Cool topic for a lens, I hadn't even thought of comparing the two.

      I agree somewhat with prosperity. Simpsons just have a type of humor more people can relate to while South Park relies a lot on people laughing at racist jokes or whatever the current political opinion is. I'm not saying that's bad, I'm just saying more people would relate to the Simpsons because of it.

      Anyway, I like the poll idea, good job on the lens!

      I'll come back just to learn more about the poll! Pretty sure everyone will prefer the Simpsons over South Park - too vulgar in my opinion; but my son really enjoys both series!

      Great lens
