The Simpsons Turn 25

Homer Jay Simpson

The Simpsons made their television debut 25 years ago today in a series of animated shorts on “The Tracy Ullman Show.”


Seven years ago, I wrote about how I never missed an episode.

As previously declared, I won't miss a new episode of "The Simpsons".  I've been watching for half my life and I'll continue watching until Matt Groening pulls the plug.

A couple of years ago, I stopped watching.  Still, I look back at those first 10 years of The Simpsons with incredible fondness and thank them for thousands and thousands of laughs.

How big a fan was I?  For years the first thing I'd do when I woke up on Sunday morning was update my Homer Simpson Quote Page.  That page remains filled to the brim with gold, should you have a minute or two to spare.

"Life is just one crushing defeat after another until you just wish Flanders was dead."
