Back in the late 1990 and early 2000s I was a fan of a popular TV series the Simpsons. Those yellow satirical characters despite residing in an imaginary American Springfield turned out to be so familiar and dear to my heart. The story itself rotates around a married couple - Homer and Marge, being a typical dysfunctional family with three kids: Lisa, Bart and Maggie. And naturally, there are hundreds of supporting characters who make the whole place so vivid and to some extent so realistic.

At first, I got acquainted with the show in a dubbed version and was a bit disappointed as it did not live up to my expectations
jokes sounded weird and somewhat contrived. I got a whole new attitude immediately after I turned to watching this animated sitcom in English: the voices, the puns, the ideas everything just felt right.

How come that those strangely looking characters got viral and kept the audience glued to the screens for 3 decades? A gripping plot? Witty remarks? Evolution of characters? Or maybe such popularity can be explained that we tend to laugh at Homer Simpson
s “wisdom” which is introduced in the mode of proof by contradiction. And the TV show authors always shed the light on the basic human values and each and every one of us is able to get their own insights. I have no specific answer here, actually, which does not stop me from enjoying the show and re-watching it every now and again.

Today I would also like to share a few quotes that I find adorable.
