It's borderline impossible to not know who the Simpsons are. It's the most popular, well-known and critically acclaim animated sitcom out there. For a good reason too: all the characters are iconic, no matter who small or important they are. During their fantastic run from 1989 to PRESENT, everyone got their chance to shine.
Everyone has their favorite episode, favorite character or maybe even a favorite season. It's a monumental show that is able to transcend cultures, language barriers and time. Let us run some numbers by you: 28 amazing seasons, 611 episodes, 31 Emmy Awards, 30 Annie Awards and 1 Peabody Award. Some say that the Simpsons are the greatest thing since sliced bread, but it might not be as far-fetched as you would think. Some say that the latter seasons are garbage, but those are still miles ahead of everything else on TV, so why bother? The Simpsons are America's most popular family, it's the greatest animated sitcom ever and it will always stay that way.
