Some facts about The Simpsons

The International Day of The Simpsons is celebrated on April 19 each year. It arose thanks to the initiative of the Spanish communication agency PG Garaje, which in 2017 decided to collect signatures on the portal to reserve that date and dedicate it to the series.

Homer, Marge, Bart, and Lisa first appeared as a comic strip "The Tracey Ullman Show" on April 19, 1987, and was made serialized by Matt Groening and producer James L. Brooks two years later.

Matt Groening used the names of his family members for the main characters in the series. The only one he didn't use was his, so he replaced it with Bart. It is one of the few series that can boast more than 170 awards and recognition on the Guinness World Record List.

In addition, the city of Springfield has been visited by multiple historical figures and celebrities, from politicians and opinion leaders to athletes and actors, such as Elton John, Britney Spears, J. K Rowling or Elon Musk, among many others. They have also made references to many films such as Pulp fiction, Psycho, or A Clockwork Orange. The yellow color of the characters is no accident. It was chosen like this so that it would attract the attention of people and they would stay to see it.

In 2007 they released their own feature film: The Simpsons The Movie. Since 2000 they have had their own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The character of El Hombre Bumblebee is said to be based on the Chapulín Colorado. The series was named by Time magazine as the best television show of the 20th century.

Despite being animated, for years it was the most expensive half-hour series on television. So much so that, in season 23, Fox thought about canceling it.
