To quote Homer Simpson, “Woo-hoo!” The Simpsons is besting Gunsmoke for the second time. Fox’s animated comedy already surpassed the 1955–1975 Western in 2009 as the longest-running American scripted primetime series, and April 29th’s 636th episode marks the most installments ever aired by a scripted primetime show.
On February 23, 2018, Nancy Cartwright was awarded the C.K. Tseng Leadership Award from the Northridge Chamber of Commerce. The C.K. Tseng Leadership award was established in 2008 in honor of C.K.

Nancy Cartwright was only in her 20s when she auditioned for the role that would change her life, the voice of Bart Simpson. She recently produced and co-wrote the film “In Search of Fellini.”
When the first episode of The Simpsons aired in December 1989, it was an instant hit with viewers across the world. As such, merchandise spin-offs were almost immediate; and one of the first was an album called The Simpsons Sing The Blues.
Cartwright, best known as the voice of Bart Simpson, explains to THR her own journey that inspired the new film. Back in 1985, Nancy Cartwright had no idea that one of her acting teachers recommending Italian director Federico Fellini’s 1954 film La Strada would have such a deep impact on her life.
