Happy Birthday, Simpsons!

This week, we celebrate the birth of our favorite yellow family!

The Simpsons turned 24 this week… can you believe that little Maggy is old enough to have a beer at Moe’s Tavern?! The Simpsons began as a short on the Tracey Ullman Show in 1987 and quickly garnered a fan base. In 1989, The Simpsons became its own, half hour television series. Here we are, 27 years later, and The Simpsons has become the longest running, scripted sitcom EVER! We are so grateful that Matt Groening ignored his father, Homer, who said, “Matt, you can’t draw.”
