The Simpsons is an American animated television series created by Matt Groening for the Fox Broadcasting Company. The series is a satirical parody of a working-class American lifestyle epitomized by its eponymous family, which consists of Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie.

The show is set in the fictional city of Springfield, and lampoons American culture, society, television and many aspects of the human condition.

The family was conceived by Groening shortly before a pitch for a series of animated shorts with the producer James L. Brooks. Groening created a dysfunctional family and named the characters after members of his own family, substituting Bart for his own name. The shorts became a part of The Tracey Ullman Show on April 19, 1987. (How many people remember Jim Henson's Muppets being on Saturday Night Live?)

After a three-season run, the sketch was developed into a half-hour prime time show and was an early hit for Fox, becoming the first Fox series to land in the Top 30 ratings in a season (1989-1990).

Since its debut on December 17, 1989 the show has broadcast 464 episodes and the twenty-first season finished airing on May 23, 2010. The Simpsons Movie, a feature-length film, was released in theaters worldwide on July 26 and 27, 2007, and grossed US$527 million worldwide.

On January 14, 2000 the Simpson family was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The making of Puss in Boots; The making of an animated movie in the 2000s is different from how it was in the 1960s or before. Technology has made many things possible that weren't possible in the past. Have we lost some things and gained others in the final product?

Depending on your needs and skill level, some of the best and best rated software programs are Manga Studio 5 and Anime Studio Debut 10 [Download] Both have PC/Mac versions, check to see if they include 3D animation.
