Ay Caramba! Bart Simpson and his fam made their series debut on FOX on December 17, 1989.
The animated sitcom created by Matt Groening began as a series of shorts incorporated into The Tracey Ullman Show in 1987.
The Simpsons is the longest running American sitcom with more than 650 episodes to date.
Not bad for a ragtag bunch from Springfield, however they are not too good at settling family disputes. Sometimes a little more than tact and delicacy is necessary to resolve family issues.
