The mpsons celebrates a milestone never met by any animated series ever. December 17th 2008 marks the 20th Anniversary of the mpson’s own weekly series, now in its staggering 20th season.
In reality The mpsons hit 20 last year nce its first incarnation was in 30 second shorts on the Tracey Ullman Show between segments, but this day is the 20th Anniversary of the very first episode of the mpsons show ever on Televion.
In case you have been living under a big giant rock, Wikipedia calls it:The mpsons is an American animated tcom created by Matt Groening for the Fox Broadcasting Company. The series is a satirical parody of the middle class American lifestyle epitomized by its titular family, which consts of Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie. The show is set in the fictional town of Springfield, and lampoons many aspects of the human condition including American culture, society, and televion.
Of all the ups and downs of the series, it has reached an untouchable status. They would have to quit on their own terms to want to bring this show to a close.
Homer has pursued pretty much every profeson known to man (despite his incredible inability to deserve them) and has met more celebrities than Perez Hilton.
