This Emmy Award®-winning series is now in the history books as the longest-running sitcom currently on television and the longest-running animated show in television history.
The Simpsons is also noted for its famous celebrity guest voices such as Michelle Pfeiffer, Mel Gibson, Elizabeth Taylor, Kim Basinger, Danny DeVito and musical guests Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Britney Spears and Aerosmith. The Simpsons is currently airing their 16th season.
