"The Simpsons" is America's longest-running scripted primetime TV series, with 29 seasons and over 600 episodes. First airing in 1989, this TV show has been around longer than many millennials. While most shows barely make it through their first few episodes, the "The Simpsons" has been going strong for decades. Heck, it's even joined the likes of "South Park" in making the jump to the big screen!

Known for its catchphrases, celebrity cameos and often accidentally predicting future events with terrifying accuracy, this animated show has won BAFTAs, Primetime Emmys, Golden Globes, Peabody Awards and more. It is an American cultural icon that mixes the smart and the slapstick seamlessly at its best.

Unsurprisingly, for a show with over 600 episodes, it has a cast of characters that it would be almost impossible to count, who have changed just as much over the years as they have stayed the same. From the stars of the show to quirky reoccurring folks who appear occasionally to one-time appearances, there is so much to work with.
