Through the years, the yellow family of five – Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie – have emerged as pop culture icons and have tackled numerous subjects in their own humorous way. Beginning today (April 15), the world’s favourite nuclear family from the award-winning and history-making series – The Simpsons – will be available on Disney+ Hotstar in India. Created by globally recognised pioneering animator Matt Groening, The Simpsons made its debut in 1989 and is the longest running sitcom in American history with a collection of over 675 episodes spanning 31 seasons. All these will be available on the platform. In fact, the episodes of the latest season will be available to stream minutes after the US. The popular 2007 feature film The Simpsons Movie and the recently released short film Playdate with Destiny will also be available.
The series is a satirical depiction of a working-class life, epitomised by the Simpson family and parodies everyday society, television, and the human condition. The characters have been voiced by Hollywood’s eminent personalities – Dan Castellaneta, Julie Kavner, Nancy Cartwright, Yeardley Smith, Hank Azaria, and Harry Shearer. The Simpsons has won over a hundred awards including the Primetime Emmy, People’s Choice and Writer’s Guild; and holds 3 Guinness World Records – making it an absolute must-watch!
