It was only a few short years before they would get their own hit series, with the premiere of The Simpsons in 1989. Furthermore, Travis highlights and styles his hair in a manner that resembles Bart Simpson’s, and has a colorful wardrobe on hand that rivals the distinctively popping colors of Springfield, USA.

The first ever short, the roughly drawn “Good Night”, featured all your favorite family members trying to settle in for an evening’s rest. For three seasons, Homer and the gang appeared in these crude sketches on The Tracey Ullman Show before they jumped to their own primetime slot with the December 17th, 1989, premiere of The Simpsons.

Aww, Valentine’s Day can be the worst … unless you have The Simpsons there to do the unpossible — skewer a greeting card company-fabricated holiday like the Feast of Saint Valentine! Over the past 300 or so seasons, The Simpsons has poked fun at Feb. 14 many a time, but it was 1993’s “I Love Lisa” that lampooned it the best. The episode introduced us to hands down our favorite bad Valentine’s puns ever, and it even helped us deal with the trials and tribulations of young love.

On The Simpsons, Homer tried to get some work done around the house with the help of an app called Chore Monkey. Leinart and Bart tossed the pigskin around, and Homer became jealous when he heard Bart express his love for the former USC quarterback. Leinart was drafted in the first round of the 2006 NFL draft, but his six-year career was a disappointment.
It’s that spoooOOOooky time of year again when The Simpsons chill us and thrill us with another Treehouse of Horror! This year’s trilogy of terror was the 27th Treehouse and 600th episode of the cartoon that just won’t die. This year’s attempt was… well, it was the 27th… so, instead, here is SuperFan TV’s Top 5 Best Treehouse of Horror Segments.
Airing on Sunday, October 16th at 8 p.m., The Simpsons’ 600th episode will open with a couch gag that immerses viewers in a 360-degree virtual world… if you have the Google Spotlight Stories app and Google Cardboard, or you were one of the lucky 25,000 fans who won one from Fox. The episode, which is Treehouse of Horror 27 or XXVII (for our Roman Numeral aficionados), opens with the VR sequence, entitled “Planet of the Couches,” and it promises different experiences with multiple viewings. Guest-voice appearances will include The Price Is Right host Drew Carey, Steely Dan’s Donald Fagen, comedian Sarah Silverman, and recording artist Judith Owen, as well as an appearance by Homer’s long-dead enemy, Frank Grimes.
"The Simpsons" premiered its 28th season on Sunday. The animated Fox show opted to focus on the town’s somewhat maleficent billionaire, Monty Burns.
