The SimpsonpranosThe prospect of our favorite “Springfield Five” living on for all time passed yet another milestone in 2012: The longest running scripted show in television history! And so The Simpsons heads into Season #25! A quarter of a century! Hey, even sea turtles and sequoia trees are starting to see staying power.

Congratulations to the writers, actors, directors, producers, executives, animators, designers, advertisers, mixers and a myriad of others who bring us this 22 minutes of awesomeness. Cheers to 25 and beyond! Yes, go ahead, have a cow, man!

Nancy’s Epic Visit to the Ohio University Commencement – 14. June, 2012

Nancy at at OU 2012 CommencementThe staff at Nancy’s office were planning an article about her visit to her alma mater, Ohio University and the commencement speech she delivered to an enthusiastic 2012 graduating class. And lest we forget, Nancy, now known as Dr. Cartwright, received an honorary degree as Doctor of Communications!

But then we received what follows below. It was written by Jarad Barr, also a graduate of OU, who was present for the occasion of his brother’s degree convocation. Jarad spoke so well of his experience and of the effect that Nancy had on the students, graduates, faculty and families at the ceremonies, that we asked for and received permission to use his words here.



Bart’s Chalk Board Quotes – 22. February, 2012

Bart Simpson's Chalkboard QuotesIn case everyone hasn’t seen it yet, here’s a list of every Bart Simpson chalkboard quote since the show’s debut in 1989, put together by the folks at just in time for The Simpsons 500th Episode. (There are only 288 of them because a lot of fresh episodes apparently recycled old chalkboard-writing sequences.)

500th Episode of The Simpsons – 16. February, 2012

At the 500th Episode celebrationHow exciting! 500 episodes…It’s hard to believe.  What is even more mind blowing is that 100 of our biggest fans vied for the right to participate in an effort to break the Guinness Book of World Records by watching over 84 consecutive hours of the show.  Fox set up a huge tent the Hollywood & Highland complex with couches and a huge screen.  The viewers could not take their eyes off the screen (there are spotters who have spotters to check on them) and they only get a 10 minute break every two hours! Wow! That’s dedication. Of course, there was a prize. Congratulations to Jeremiah Franco and Carin Shreve. They received $10,500 each and co-share the new Guinness World Record at 86 hours and 37 minutes. Not bad for a few days “work.” (more…)
