News & Interviews for The Simpsons: Season 1
An endless, imponderable, unstoppable Niagara of sight gags, jokes, one-liners, characters and stories that explore everything from the meaning of God to the anti-allure of Duff Beer.
This addition, a mordant animated series from cartoonist Matt Groening, is the most subversive beast in the Fox den, and, at least initially, the wittiest.
What is far more remarkable is how many of the elements that came to define the show were already in place that very first episode.
What's great is seeing the characters start to find their personas and how the laughs were achieved through some inventive animation and crackerjack writing.
Audience Reviews for The Simpsons: Season 1
The groundbreaking animated family comedy The Simpsons delivers a hilarious first season. The animation style is a little crude and the character designs fluctuate a bit, but overall the series has an interesting look and feel to it. And, the comedy is especially sharp; using a lot of satire and parody. Additionally, the show does an impressive job at world building and at setting up a vast array of supporting characters. Also, several guest stars including Kelsey Grammer and Penny Marshall are featured. Season 1 of The Simpsons is a lot of fun and is full of laughs.
