The Simpsons have been on our air for so long that the show has broken several television records. It is the longest-running scripted program ever to grace our televisions. They beat out Gunsmoke’s record of 634 episodes. A milestone that no one ever thought would be toppled.

However, not only did they break it, they are still going strong. Today, Al Jean, who is an executive producer on the animated series, announced that they are doing a table read for their 700th episode today.

Congrats to our favorite television family. Today, I will sit on my couch in honor of you.

In case you are wondering why The Simpsons is filming new episodes now during the coronavirus pandemic while live-action shows have no start day. For the most part, animated television has been largerly unaffected by it because the voice actors can work from home.

Weezer gets Simpsonsfied while The Simpsons get Weezered!

This Sunday at 8p on Fox, The Simpsons’ theme song is going to sound a little bit different. That is because Weezer is going to perform it.

Not only that, but they are also going to play a Weezer cover band called Sailor’s Delight on the episode. Sailor’s Delight is going to perform songs from the band’s Black Album and debut a new tune from their upcoming CD Van Weezer.

I hope that record is also the Yellow Album in honor of them getting Simpsonfied.

Is Yeardley Smith really 55?
May 4th, 2020 under Are they really their age?, The Simpsons. [ Comments: none ]


Yeardley Smith has been voicing Lisa Simpson for over 30 years. Just like her character, she never ages.

The actress wore a white pillow, that is a lot of like her character’s red dress, and she doesn’t look her age. Can you believe that she is 55? She looks the same as she did when she started on the Fox animated sitcom in the late ’80s. However, she does look older than she did when she was in The Legend of Billie Jean. If you have never seen that movie, you need to watch it ASAP.

Back to Smith, doesn’t she look fantastic?

A family recreated The Simpsons opening!
April 9th, 2020 under The Simpsons. [ Comments: none ]


We have all been home so long; we do not know what to do with ourselves. While that is us, the Sutherlands from Springfield (I am assuming), found the perfect thing to do with their downtime as a family.

While the Marge of the family was cleaning out the basement, she came across their Simpsons Halloween costumes. Therefore, she asked her husband what she should do with them. That is when he came up with a brilliant idea.

They all put on their costumes and recreated the animated opening to the show. Cowabunga man! It is so freaking cool that I hope animated sitcom can use it next season. Heck, maybe they can even find a way to swap out of their currents ones with this one since they will be airing five new episodes every Sunday on Fox starting on April 19th.

Homer and Bart Simpson are the same age now
January 28th, 2020 under The Simpsons. [ Comments: none ]


On January 14th, The Simpsons celebrated 30 years of being on our televisions. Even though the show is 30, the characters have not aged a day since it premiere in 1990.

That fact made the show’s Executive Producer Al Jean ponder something about his two lead males. He wrote, “If Homer is 39 he was born in 1980 which is when we said Bart was born.”

I would say more, but this made my head hurt so much, I cannot think. That, and because I am stuck on that fact that next year Bart will be older than his dad. Ouch!
