The main theme of the show - the humor, satire, issues and incidents of contemporary society, standing alongside the kindness and family values. Springfield - so the town in which the scene is one of the most common city names in the states, so it is impossible to trace. Initially, the authors planned to make the protagonist Bart, but Homer Simpson proved the viewer closer and simply ridiculous. Marge - the perfect wife and mother, the keeper of the family hearth, and comfort, while Homer - a sample of the World laziness and stupidity. Despite the unique individuality of each character - an excellent pupil and clever Lisa, Bart bully and Losers, silent year-old Maggie - all happy and loved. Each new series - almost regardless of any subsequent or previous, it has its own history, new jokes and positive sea.
"The Simpsons" - the longest and most successful in the history of American cartoons. Deservedly honored with a star on the Walk of Fame in 2000. It has 28 seasons, including 618 issues, but officially extended to 30 seasons. It aired from 1989 to the present, and submitted to the Guinness Book of Records as the animated series with the most guest stars as the characters themselves.
