What is The Simpsons about?

The Simpsons is the quintessential American sitcom: a charmingly animated, flawed, uproarious series that’s been going since December of 1989. Now, 31 seasons and 666 episodes later, the show has a home on Disney+, where you can unwind with decades’ worth of relatable family trials and slapstick comedy. The show has received 33 Emmy Awards, 34 Annie Awards, and a Peabody Award, and is often ranked by entertainment publications as the greatest cartoon series of all time.

Taking place in the fictional, satirical, all-American town of Springfield, The Simpsons serves as a forum for ideas about American society, playfully illustrated through its leading family: Homer, Marge, Grampa, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie. From the controversial subjects like the responsibility that comes with gun ownership (and that likely plays differently today) to lighter fare like the temptation of hiring a shady lawyer to make a quick buck, The Simpsons has generally dealt with the questions on Americans’ minds. But it’s also simply about a family you can’t help but love.

The show features the voice-over talents of Dan Castellaneta, Nancy Cartwright, Harry Shearer, Julie Kavner, Yeardley Smith, Hank Azaria, and countless others.
