The long-running, popular animated comedy The Simpsons revolves around the chaotic daily life of an American family and their neighbors in a town called Springfield. Homer Simpson, a hapless nuclear power plant worker, and his well meaning wife, Marje, raise three children under sometimes challenging circumstances. Many plots follow the antics of their disobedient son, Bart, and his nerdy (yet idealistic) younger sister, Lisa. Celebrity guests frequently provide voice appearances. The Simpsons often pokes irreverent humor at religion and established institutions, customs, values, political leaders, ideas, and social movements.
