Happy Birthday Homer

The Simpsons

20 years ago today the first episode of The Simpsons aired.  Actually, that’s a lie. Originally there were short episodes airing on The Tracey Ullman Show and a few weeks prior to the 14 Jan 1990 episode was the first episode proper – Simpsons Roasting On An Open Fire.  But today’s the day they’re treating as the anniversary, so who am I to question?!

My favourite epsiode is season 8’s El Viaje Misterioso de Nuestro Jomer where the family go to a chilli cook off and Homer ends up eating an hallucinogenic chilli pepper.  Check out Wikipedia at http://tinyurl.com/aq9toq for details.

Quote of the episode goes to Homer, when being told off for drunkenness at the previous year’s cook off:

Well of course, everything looks bad if you remember it.

Tonight sees a brand new episode with the start of season 21, Homer The Whopper, where Homer becomes a super-hero. Sky 1 at 7:30.
