"The Simpsons" 20th anniversary

Today marks the 20th anniversary of the Simpsons' first apperance in an animated short on The Tracy Ulman Show. Primetime variety shows may be dead, but primetime animation proved to be more enduring. When the half hour version of The Simpsons became a hit, it inspired other animated shows, some successful (South Park, Family Guy) and some not (Capitol Critters, Fish Police).

Bart Simpson has been ten years old for the past twenty years. How time flies...
