THE SIMPSONS


The Simpsons are a cult cartoon series popular all over the world. The Simpsons  were  created by cartoonist Matt Groening U.S. at the end of the 80s for the Fox Broadcasting Company. Set in a fictional town called Springfield, the show is humorous in many aspects of the human condition; it is a satirical parody of society and the American lifestyle epitomized by its protagonist family, which consists of Homer, Marge and their three children Bart, Lisa and Maggie.

                                         
 MAIN CHARACTERS:



                                                                 
Homer Simpson: he is the main character of the show and the spouse of Marge Simpson. He is overweight, lazy and often ignorant to the world around him. He spends a great deal of his time at Moe’s tavern with his friends Barney, Carl and Lenny.




Marge Simpson: she is the homemaker and full-time mom of the Simpson family. She and her husband Homer have three children: Bart,  Lisa and Maggie. Marge is the moralistic force in her family and she keeps everything in order in the Simpson household.


                                         
Bart Simpson: he is the tritagonist of The Simpson. He is the mischievous, rebellious, misunderstood and “potentially dangerous” eldest child of Homer and Marge. He also has the nickname Cosmo, after discovering a comet in “Bart’s Comet”.


Lisa Simpson: she is a charismatic 8-year-old girl who exceeds the standard achievement of intelligence level of children her age. She is also the moral center of her family.
                                                   

Maggie Simpson: she is the youngest child of Homer and Marge. She is often seen sucking on her pacifer and, when she walks, she trips over her clothing and falls on her face. Because she rarely ever talks, Maggie is the least seen and heard in the Simpson family.
                     

                                                     
THE SIMPSONS PREDICTIONS

The 9/11 attacks.  In a 1997 episode of The Simpsons, ‘The City of New York vs. Homer Simpson’, Lisa Simpson presents a 9 $ magazine entitled ‘New York’. Conspiracy theorists have suggested that the magazine’s peculiar design could’ve been a deliberate allusion to the 9/11 attacks that would take place four years later. Is it a coincidence or not?

 
                                                                   

The president Trump.  Almost 16 years ago the television series predicted Donald Trump’s victory as President of the United States of America. The cartoon foresee the billionaire’s ascension to becoming the US President in an episode called Bart To The Future that aired in 2000. This is crazy!



Ebola virus. The Simpsons predicted US Ebola outbreak in 1997: Episode shows Marge offering a sick Bart children's book 'Curious George and the Ebola Virus'. Coincidences?

Our musings


Do you like The Simpsons? In our opinion , watching an episode of the Simpsons is very relaxing after a stressful school-day, isn’t it? We think it’s the perfect way to free your mind.
But it isn’t the classic cartoon. For example,  have you noticed that some silly things you laugh at  are important issues instead? In fact the purpose of this kind of cartoon is to tell important things in a lighter way. In two words: SMART SATIRE!
