OMYGOD—400 episodes already!! It seems to me that it was just yesterday that we were announced on the Fox line-up as having our own half-hour show!
Fox threw us a big bash on the lot on New York Street, famous for the set of Hello, Dolly! About 1,000 peeps attended, mostly artists and staff. There were plenty of media there and I spent about 1 1/2 hours doing tons of interviews for the promotion of our record-breaking 400th.
The only other show that tops ours is Gunsmoke. It was on the air from 1955-1975.
The Simpsons first aired in 1990 as a sitcom; however we made our television debut on The Tracey Ullman Show back in 1987, making it a 20-year-run.
My vision is to see that we do no less than 500! Fox will throw us another party—bigger balloons, better food.
