What other cartoon has lasted this long? It's simply iconic.

I'd agree, OP. I'm a huge fan. I have been rewatching all the seasons since I got Disney + and I'm on Season 12 now.

Is Gen Z in to the Flintstones R1? The kids still know who Homer and Bart Simpson is.

South Park is right up there too. In fact, I'd say South Park has probably had more influence on our culture than any other animated show. Family Guy as well

The Simpsons walked so South Park and Family Guy could run R5 and both were clearly inspired by the former even if they pushed more boundaries.

^ Ok, wasn't trying to take anything away from the Simpsons. They all contributed greatly to the social narative

The Simpsons was like the animated version of Married With Children. Both Homer and AL Bundy were crappy husbands with long suffering wives and two bratty children of the opposite genders.

The Simpsons reflected the human condition, South Park exposed it and shone a 1000 watt light on it

Cartman is like a ADHD version of Bart. Lisa was self-righteous and annoying, the original Meg.

Even if you could argue that last 20 years sucked, it still means the first 14 years were fantastic.
14 years of ANY show says a lot about quality when most seasons were at least 20 shows and many as many as 25.
Show me any sitcom where it had even 10 solid seasons.

The first ten seasons of The Simpsons are unsurpassed. Particularly seasons three through seven - I don't think there was a single bad episode.
Every season from then on has ranged from mediocre to downright awful. Yes, there are a handful of great post-90s episodes, but for the most part... meh.

It's kind of eerie how ahead of its time the show has been, so far ahead it seems to predict the future.

What nerve R17 the one you're trying to get on but failing miserably? I'm no granny either, the dry pussy and even drier humor clearly belongs to you cunt face.

The Simpsons was great but it has been awful for about 25 years now. That's like 3x longer than it's been good/great. It';s just a cash cow at this point.

It's a perfectly cromulent series.

I absolutely loved in the early days — I remember seeing clips of it during the Tracy Ullman show.
Last time I tried to watch it, I just couldn’t. It was unwatchable. Just awful.

Family Guy has surpassed it in quality. It's still good twenty years in.
The Simpsons ran out of steam when Clinton was in office.

R8 Simpsons were never politically incorrect like Married with Children. Homer is nothing like Al. He's just dumb, but he loves Marge. Al hates his wife and children. And his life.

To the people saying Family Guy is better, what drugs are you on? That show is for simpletons. Absolutely nothing clever or funny about it. One of the most overrated tv shows ever made.

Totally agree R27 family guy appeals to the lowest common denominator, very obvious humor. Although I will say their parodies of celebrities are unmatched.
