Okay if you're a fan like I am you'd realize that a week ago fox aired the 400th episode of The Simpsons. (400 more pleasesmile ) So I became enfatuated with the Simpsons when I was 5 years old and went on vacation in Canada to visit relatives. Ever since then I have gotten the episodes through all sorts of ways and means(it's what inspired me to learn bittorent and irc). So now that I downloaded ep 400. I have a copy of every single episode and have seen them all at least once smile

Now The Simpsons is filled with subtleties and inside jokes enough to waste your life away researching. And I have to give it up to the creators and writers. I also started collecting memorabilia(something i've never done before) and i also purchased(yes purchased) the dvd box sets for seasons 1-5.

So if you love the Simpsons show your love here by talking about it and also the original topic :

My favourite character would be Homer. Bart comes Second. Homer because he's the driving force of the show whether it's his patented space age moon waffles which he wraps around a stick of butter and eats in one gulp or his wierd sayings and sounds or his lazy idiotic personality. You can't help but like the guy. Every now and then I even put a quote from him in my sig. Here are a few:

(to ned) "You help me, and, in turn, I am helped by you." rofl

(telling bart how to avoid jury duty) "The trick is to say you're prejudiced against all races." Hilarious

"Check and mate. Now king me!" (Hahahahaahheehaw)

"I hope he tells us to burn our pants. These things are killing me."

(singing) " I am so smart! I am so smart! S-M-R-T! I mean S-M-A-R-T! "



Also If you didn't know Futurama is coming back in 2008. At least 13 episodes on comedy central if all goes well... Yay Support it now.

My top three favourite characters are Marge, Ralf, and Millhouse (is that how you spell his name??)

Marge is that stay-at-home wife you just have to give props to for putting up with Homer and Bart.
Ralf is the somewhat mentally retarded kid of Chief Wiggums that is so stupid that he'sfunny.
and you can't help but feel sorry for Millhouse who's parents are divorced and he's stuck with his loser dad, and he has an unrealistic idea about him and Lissa....he's depressing to even look at...XD

Skinner is another fave did you see the episode where he
Spoiler (highlight to view)
is not really skinner but an imposter and the real skinner is another man who he thought died in the war so he stole his life. At the end everyone wants him to be the real skinner so they kick the other guy out and forget it ever happened lol even his mother

"Who is your favorite Simpsons Character and Why?"

.......I have no "one" favorite character because Simpsons requires a entire cast to make it what it is. (Except the ones who are a one character show....Homer...Raph...)

Anyways my favorite character interactions are between that of.....

Homer and Ned
("Hey Homer will you yank my teats? MIIIIIILLLLKKKKK ME!")

Moe and Bart
("Myra Buttreeks? Does anyone know if Myra Buttreek's here?")

Moe and everyone else.
("Why does everyone keep calling me a Troll?") biggrin

and just about every other character interaction.....

Uncle Willy biggrin (The concierge of Springfield's school)

I just love the way he talks with that raw Irish accent. Argh!

And he always tries to save someone smile "Don't worry, uncle Willy's here to save ya" or something like that. Mostly immediatly after that he gets killed bigrazz

The seacaptain with his pipe is quite funny as well !
Awr maitèh! Set full sails!
Hehe, still remember the episode when Lisa couldn't get the gum out of her hair, and he said something like "What you need is a giant octupus, it'll suck it right off ya skin Awwrrr!"

Quote from luisalirio84
You little S.O.B.! Why, when I find out who you are, I'm going to shove a sausage down your throat and stick starving dogs in your butt!

Best characters: Bart, Ralph, Willie.

Quotes:
Lisa: Dad! Dad! Bart and I did something terrible!
Homer: Did you wreck the car?
Bart & Lisa: No.
Homer: Did you raise the dead?
Bart & Lisa: Uh Huh.
Homer: But the car's okay?
Bart & Lisa: Yeah...
Homer: Okay.
...
Homer (firing shotgun): Take that Flanders!
Bart: Dad, you killed zombie Flanders!
Homer: He was a zombie?
...
Homer: Kill my boss? Do I dare live out the American dream?
...

The Simpsons was a great show... right up until about around the time I gave it up 150 episodes ago.

luisalirio84 you should add favorite Simpson quotes and moments to your main topic!!

I love the Ned Flanders predicts Homer's destruction of Spring Field episode.

Ned (into the intercom): Don't do it! Don't do it!
(As heard by Homer because of static): Bzzzz....Do it! Bzzz....Do it!

lol

Hmm although people have said it has declined in quality recently I disagree sure they have run intoa wall with a few episodes but most of them are still fresh. Did you see the 24 parody they couldn't have done it better imo.

Also I fogot to mention another of my favourites : Sideshow Bob (Voiced by Kelsey Grammer from Frasier) , that guy is the epitamy of a crazed genius madman lol. There's an episode where he and his brother appear and his brother is more evil than him the brother was voiced by(David Hyde Pyrce from Fraiser) and the episode was named Brother from another series . If you don't see the sophisticated humour in that well you aren't that developed upstairs (if u know what i mean ) bigrazz

Self-correction: I stopped watching early 300's, not 250's.

Their humor has never really gotten bad (even though all the great quotables are of older episodes), it is just the Simpsons stopped being human beings. As the show went on, zany humor replaced likable characters. I once loved the whole Simpson family, now there are times when I can't stand to watch them.

Besides, Family Guy was always better suited for the zany humor bid. They never try to get you to feel for their characters, so they can pretty much do whatever they want, e.g. it is not where near so horrifying so see, Stewy beating Brian half to death, heck, it's funny. I couldn't watch the Simpsons being flat-out bad people like that.

Meh I kinda see what you're saying but I just love their recent craziness as well. Also if you look at futurama it was way more emotional than the Simpsons look at the episode Jurrasic Bark for instance or The whole fry and leela saga (Parasites Lost and The one where he's stung by a bee and she thinks he died but it was leela who was poisoned and fry was just gouged and she was dreaming the whole thing) Really emotional episodes. Simpsons and family guy can't touch Futurama there.

Okay you know this Gir but the two worst cancellations in recent memory:
1. Futurama
2. Invader Zim

Why does family guy get brought back when the superior product got flushed away? Okay Futurama is coming back but it should have been sooner.
Invader Zim is kinda different it was a nick show after all maybe they should have aired it on a more mature station. Okay face it Family Guy is definitely the low brow (low brau- beer in futurama) of all these shows it appeals to the obviously less intelligent and that's why it's still around. It's only funny sometimes and rarely has anything that's more than toilet humour. Although I watch certain episodes smile You can't really compare Family Guy to the simpsons it's like comparing something (C) Mattel corp and Made in Taiwan it's a knock off no offense. I love treehouse of horror XIII attack of the revenge of the clones or something like that where there's a field of homer clones and boom for like a second peter is mixed in with them. Hilarious. laugh laugh
