It's one of the longest-running shows in TV history and it doesn't look like The Simpsons plan to slow down any time soon. Find out all you need to know about this classic comedy!

The Simpsons - Main Cast

  • Homer Simpson - D'oh! Homer Simpson may be one of the dumbest guys in town, but that hasn't stopped him from doing some pretty cool things. When he's not working at Mr. Burns' Nuclear Power Plant you might find Homer over at Moe's, inventing new products or strangling Bart.
  • Marge Simpson - Why Marge Simpson has stayed with Homer all this time is an age old mystery. She's smart, sophisticated and has gorgeous, tall, blue hair. Whether it's whipping up supper for her family or banning sugar from Springfield, Marge always has something on the go. Despite her husband's dumb-witted ways, Marge stands by the man she loves.
  • Bart Simpson - A complete opposite from his sister Lisa, Bart Simpson is always getting himself into trouble. He prides himself on getting nothing but Ds and Fs in school and can regularly be found in detention. Even though he's not a genius in school, Bart has managed to help capture homicidal maniac, Sideshow Bob, not once, but twice!
  • Lisa Simpson - Lisa is only in the second grade, but she is one smart cookie. Constantly taking on issues around town, Lisa sometimes drives the people of Springfield a little crazy. Lisa is a vegetarian, she plays the saxaphone and rarely gets along with her brother, Bart.
  • Maggie Simpson - She can't talk yet, but Maggie Simpson is still aware that she lives with a pretty crazy family. She's an extremely loveable baby and is never without her red soother!
