Tuesday, [December 17th], marked the 30th anniversary of the series premiere of The Simpsons. Has there been a more successful underachiever on television than Bart Simpson?
It is that time of the year again. You know, candy canes, reindeer, the smell of pine needles—or whatever your dominant holiday odors might be—and 24/7 bingeing of The Simpsons! That’s right, starting on December 17, you too can be fully sleep deprived cataloging every D’oh!, Aye Carumba, Lisa sigh and “eat my shorts” contained in 661 episodes of The Simpsons!
One of the characters Nancy Cartwright “voices” in The Simpsons is Maggie, who has of course been a baby for decades. In the latest Treehouse of Horror episode for Season 31, Maggie has some strange markings on her head. Here is the intro. Enjoy!
Not only has The Simpsons been on the air for decades now, but back in the early days they also topped the music charts. The various stars, including Nancy Cartwright of course, spent additional time in the studio recording some pretty amazing music.
Nancy Cartwright, best-known for playing Bart Simpson on the record-setting animated series The Simpsons, was chosen to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award and gave the keynote speech at the Catalyst Content Film Festival (www.catalystcontent.org).
The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences named The Simpsons Outstanding Animated Program at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards Saturday, September 14th.
