An analysis of The Simpsons as a cultural phenomenon, paying particular attention to its genre, form and place in the television schedule. – The Reality Warp I wrote this while studying my at media studies at university and wanted to share it with you guys. It was grossly under-marked in my opinion and will hopefully receive a better reception on the world stage. A little long, but worth the read. Maybe someone will reference the blog in their work one day. That would be the dream wouldn’t it? An analysis of The Simpsons as a cultural phenomenon, paying particular attention to its genre, form and place in the television schedule. In terms of animation on television that can genuinely be perceived as a television text, few programs that have appeared on our screens can argue the case of having a more prominent role than The Simpsons over the past two decades. The show has since gone on to win dozens of awards since it began as a series including Emmy awards, Annie award and a Peabody award, with the family being awarded a star on the Hollywood walk of fame in 2000.

This reflects Matt Groening’s scepticism towards the idea of the perfect patriarch who makes everything right, as seen on series like The Cosby Show. The Simpsons represents a much more nuanced and more realistic view of life. No matter how much grief they cause one another, they always end up affirming their love for one another. In one cautionary episode, the Simpson children are taken away by the Child Welfare Board. The ghastliness of the morally upright Flanders family (‘I don’t judge Homer and Marge – that’s for a vengeful God to do,’ says Maude Flanders) and trendy social workers are contrasted with the cosy imperfections of their real parents. ‘The answer the show offers is that the children are better off with their real parents,’ Cantor says.

Dead Homer Society 'The Simpsons' Hits a Landmark Homer Simpson is gunning for you, Matt Dillon. With Sunday's premiere (Fox, 8 ET/PT), "The Simpsons" will tie "Gunsmoke's" record of 20 seasons on the air. The writing staff keeps track of the longevity milestones, executive producer Al Jean says, but creator Matt Groening only cops to one record for the iconic Springfield family, its friends and neighbors. Both believe the show is still performing strongly despite recording 445 episodes, including a season premiere that has Homer and neighbor Ned Flanders teaming as bounty hunters and Marge Simpson unwittingly going to work at an erotic bakery. He has proof of the show's staying power, too: its 10th Emmy for outstanding animated series, bestowed this month. "Every time we get an Emmy, it buys us a couple more years" on the air, Groening says. Actually, they probably have more time for demolition, if they so choose, with the voice actors signed for four years, including the one that starts this weekend. "Things turn nasty," Groening says.

'The Simpsons' Explains Its Provocative Banksy Opening How did “The Simpsons” manage to track down Banksy, the pseudonymous British artist, and get him to create the powerful opening-credit sequence from Sunday’s episode, which seems to reveal the torturous sweatshop responsible for the show’s creation? And how, after all that mockery, have the producers behind that Fox animated series been able to retain their jobs? Al Jean, an executive producer and the longtime show runner of “The Simpsons,” pulled back another layer of the curtain and explained the stunt to ArtsBeat on Monday afternoon. How did you find Banksy to do this, and now that it’s done, how much trouble are you in? Well, I haven’t been fired yet, so that’s a good sign. Were you concerned that what he sent you could get the show into hot water? I’d be lying if I said I didn’t think about it for a little bit. Can you say what got cut out? I’ll just say, it was even a little sadder. One of the things Banksy is known for is disguising his identity. No, absolutely not.
