About The SimpsonsEdit
- With "The Simpsons" they used to worry about money -- the characters were scrimping to get by, and Homer actually had to get up in the morning and go to work. And now he's wherever we want him to be for whatever reason at any time. Occasionally we make a joke that he's missing work, but often he's wandering around like Ozzie. And I think that that was one of the reasons for the success of the show, because it was such a traditional sitcom template of the family, so you know where the kids are supposed to be in the morning -- eating breakfast, catching the school bus, going to school -- and where Homer was, at work, and Marge raising Maggie at home. That gave the show a foundation. And after years went by and we're trying to surprise ourselves and the audience, the show got wilder and wilder; I don't think it would have worked if we had just stayed the way it was at the beginning. People loved those original shows, but I don't know if they would have loved it for 25 years.
