This His wife, Marge, is a good
This cartoon for grown-ups takes place in a fictional town calledSpringfield in the 1990’s. The main character in the show is Homer Simpsons, afather of three and a husband. Homer works at the Springfield nuclear powerplant. He is portrayed as a slacker who is completely unqualified for his job.He’s also shown as a lazy couch potato and a little bit of an alcoholic. He’salso shown as a “pig” when it comes to food.
His wife, Marge, is a good parentwho has to keep an eye on Homer and the rest of the family most of the time.Bart, their oldest son, is a poor student who enjoys comic books and televisionand hates girls. Lisa, the middle child of the family, is an excellent studentand a nice person. She is almost the complete opposite of Bart except they bothenjoy the violent cartoons of “Itchy and Scratchy”.
Maggie, the baby of thefamily, is known for constantly smacking her pacifier. She is portrayed asbeing smarter than Homer. Almost every little thing in the show is intendedtobe humorous.
In general the show is very funny but has some bad language and otheroffensive material. The fact that the show is a cartoon may be what has keptsome people from watching. The cartoon though is what helps achieve many of thehumorous aspects. For example a spill of nuclear waste would not be veryamusing in a show with real people.
The show has the assumption that it is OK if your family argues all thetime. It shows this by the little arguments that the family constantly getsinto. It also shows that it’s pointless to try to be good all the time. Oneexample is when they’re eating at home they use no table manners whatsoever andwhen they go to church they try to be like normal families. There are times inthe show when they step away from comedy and give a meaningful message aboutfamily values, or friendship, etc..
In conclusion The Simpsons is a very funny show with a unique cartoonaspect. Category: Music and Movies
