If it feels like The Simpsons has been on forever, and that’s because it practically has. The show first aired back in 1989 and is still producing new episodes to this day. Even though it doesn’t quite have the same appeal as it once did, we can’t overlook the great memories and even greater laughs the animated sitcom provided us as adolescents. The cultural impact The Simpsons has made is undeniable. Matt Groening and his yellow creations are basically part of the family at this point.
