The Simpsons is the longest running TV series in history. For almost two decades, Springfield's chaotic family ruled the television and there's no stopping them.

Led by the greatest comic creation of all time and also the greatest character of the last 20 years, Homer Simpson. Homer J. Simpson is a simple man with a simple life. All he wants is to eat donuts, drink beer and make love to her wife, Marge. Marge on the other hand is the over protective but fun loving mother of Bart, Lisa and Maggie.

The Simpson family embarks their everyday life with their normal day to day activities. Homer, who works at a Nuclear power plant who owns by Mr. Burns is like any other employer. He wakes up in the morning, eats his breakfast, go to work, then drink with his friends after.

The family has a unique relationship to each other specially the father and son duo. Homer has the habit of choking Bart if he made mistakes that pisses Homer off. On the other hand, Bart will do anything possible just to ruin Homer's day. Lisa is the complete opposite of Bart, while Bart is considered as the headache, Lisa is considered as the antidote. Together, they form a pact and rivalry that only a true brother and sister have.
