This is an animated sitcom about the antics of a dysfunctional family. Homer is the oafish unhealthy beer loving father, Marge is the hardworking homemaker wife, Bart is the perpetual ten-year-old underachiever (and proud of it), Lisa is the unappreciated eight-year-old genius, and Maggie is the cute, pacifier loving silent infant.Written by
It was revealed in season twenty-seven, episode nine, "Barthood", that the sailboat painting hanging above the Simpson's couch was done by Lisa. See more »
"In one episode they say this, but then in another episode they say that, and in yet another episode they say the other." As this is an animated comedy series, the emphasis is clearly on laughs rather than complete verisimilitude. Efforts are certainly made to create a vaguely consistent setting in which mostly consistent characters live and work, and many episodes refer to each other, but rigid consistency of every single detail in all episodes is unnecessary. In many episodes, the fact that something is inconsistent is the express point of a gag. Our general rule is that each episode is expected to be consistent within itself, but intra-episode inconsistencies are not being listed. There can be exceptions for unusually noteworthy matters, e.g., inconsistencies repeated in multiple episodes (such as the hair and skin colors of secondary characters, and the layouts of the main landmarks), drastic changes to a character's nature (such as Ralphie's school status, Jasper's abilities, or Milhouse's hair color), or something with an interesting anecdote behind it (such as Smithers' skin color).

this cartoon is the best cartoon in the world. It's the longest running animation series since the Flintsones,and now on its tenth series its shows seem to be getting better and better. I think when the cartoon first started in 1989 (in its own show) the cartoon was aimed at children but as it's come on, the storylines have quite a lot of adult references which to me makes it more funny
