Happy Birthday, Simpsons!
It was twenty years ago today, Homer Simpson taught the land to strangle his son.
On April 19, 1987 The Tracey Ullman Show aired a two-minute animated short by Matt Groening that introduced the world to the Simpsons, a family from Springfield, USA. And, quite literally, television has never been the same. The Simpsons has gone on to become one of the longest continuously-aired television shows in American history. What had been seen as "good grief, look what they’re shoveling onto the children now" has become one of the most honored and most respected shows of all time.
