Originally created by cartoonist Matt Groening, The Simpsons has graced the small screen for over 20 years. The Simpson family first appeared on television as the subjects of interstitial "shorts" on The Tracey Ullman Show in April of 1987.
It was two years later when they premiered their own half-hour series on December 17, 1989. With the help of Jim Brooks and Sam Simon, Matt Groening's cartoon family turned into an instant success.
Since the beginning, the series has been a pop culture icon, attracting hundreds of celebrities to guest star. The show has also made name for itself in its fearless satirical take on politics, media and American life in general.
The Simpsons has over 400 episodes under its belt, with over 20 Emmy Awards, a handful of music albums, and countless merchandise. They even put out The Simpsons Movie in the summer of 2007.
