From the paper:

The Simpsons first appeared on the Tracey Ullman Show in 1987. They were an animated family of crudely-drawn, yellow-skinned characters with no patience for quality time or touchy-feely moments?in fact, the father, Homer, tried to strangle his son, Bart, in almost every episode. The public responded so well to this dysfunctional family that in 1989, Fox Network offered Simpsons? creator Matt Groening his own show. In 1989, The Simpsons aired a half hour long Christmas special (?Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire?). The Simpsons premiered as a weekly series in January, 1990 (Groening 14-18). The series is still running. Because the characters are animated, they have not aged.”
