1. The origin of „The Simpsons“
“The Simpsons” is the most successful animation series of the world! They were created by the cartoonist Matt Groening in 1987. At first it was a series of 30-second spots for the FOX series “The Tracy Ullman Show”. A total of 48 shorts were produced over the first three seasons, and Bart is the only character to appear in all 48. The response to the spots was so positive that FOX made a half-hour Christmas special on Dec. 17, 1989. Since Jan. 14, 1990 “The Simpsons” is a regular series.
According to producer and director David Silverman, the production of the Simpsons-shorts for the Tracey Ullman show lasted approximately four weeks. Today, the production of a squadron of the Simpsons requires approximately six months. “The Simpsons” is registered in the Guinness Book of Records for the longest animated series in the television history. There are more than 200 episodes. The show’s 100th episode was aired in April 1994, the 200th in May 1998.
