Trivia

Most of the main cast of Cheers (1982) has appeared on this show. Most notably, Kelsey Grammer as Sideshow Bob. In an episode where Homer was kicked out of Moe's Tavern, he seeks a new bar, and walks into Cheers. This is where the other Cheers (1982) cast members voice their old characters. However, Kelsey Grammer's character of Frasier does not speak. See more »

Goofs

"In one episode they say this, but then in another episode they say that, and in yet another episode they say the other." As this is an animated comedy series, the emphasis is clearly on laughs rather than complete verisimilitude. Efforts are certainly made to create a vaguely consistent setting in which mostly consistent characters live and work, and many episodes refer to each other, but rigid consistency of every single detail in all episodes is unnecessary. In many episodes, the fact that something is inconsistent is the express point of a gag. Our general rule is that each episode is expected to be consistent within itself, but intra-episode inconsistencies are not being listed. There can be exceptions for unusually noteworthy matters, e.g., inconsistencies repeated in multiple episodes (such as the hair and skin colors of secondary characters, and the layouts of the main landmarks), drastic changes to a character's nature (such as Ralphie's school status, Jasper's abilities, or Milhouse's hair color), or something with an interesting anecdote behind it (such as Smithers' skin color).

Crazy Credits

On the Halloween specials starting with II and with the exception of VI, the theme is played on an organ. When the Gracie Films logo appears, the "Shh!" Is replaced by a sound bite of a woman screaming and the accompanying jingle is played on a pipe organ. See more »

Excellent
19 January 2005 | by jp88See all my reviews

The Simpsons is one of the best TV shows of all times. It is a perfect mirror of the American culture and has many memorable moments that will always be remembered . I don't know anybody who doesn't like this show, it's impossible not to be a fan of it. You could watch each episode 20 times and never get tired, you will always find a new funny thing every time you watch it

Unfotunatley the show is getting worse and worse with every new season, Maybe it's time to let "The Simpsons" die with dignity before the audience starts to hate it.

My rating: 11/10
