The Simpsons is an American animated series broadcast on the FOX channel. The comedy follows the Simpsons family, a working-class family in the misfits of Springfield. Homer, the father, works as a safety inspector at the local nuclear power plant. Marge, the mother, tries to keep the family at peace. They have three children: Bart, a 10-year-old boy, Lisa, 8, who is very smart, plays the saxophone and follows a vegan diet, and baby Maggie, who expresses her emotions by desperately sucking on a pacifier. The Simpsons are the longest-running animated series in history and the longest prime time sitcom on television.
