Twenty-five years ago, the first episode of The Simpsons aired in the Sunday, 8 p.m., time slot that the show still occupies today and has for most of its quarter-century run. In the past 25 years, the show has generated laughs, riffed on countless pop culture sources, and even introduced whole words to our language.

First off: We don't have any information on this situation beyond the title of the video, so, you know, grains of salt.

As far back as we can remember, we always wanted to be a character on The Simpsons. But not everybody feels the same way.
Actor Frank Sivero, who played Goodfellas character Frankie Carbone, has filed a $250 million lawsuit against Fox Television Studios for basing one of The Simpsons's mob characters on his likeness.

Warning: Some graphic imagery
As The Walking Dead slowly shuffles its way back into the mainstream, the talented artists at DeviantArt are bringing their talents to bear on the show.
Not, as some would hope, by imagining the Daryl/Rick romance that we all secretly hope will happen (they're so close … and so lonely), but rather by dragging characters from other iconic television shows into the world of The Walking Dead.

The Simpsons enters its 26th season Sept. 28. Pause and try to absorb that information.
Okay. Now think about how recognizable and familiar the style of The Simpsons actually is: Can you think of another animated series from the past quarter-decade of American animation that's quite as iconic? Family Guy comes close, but it's still far off.
Which is what's so cool about this collection of art from DeviantArt user ADN-Z. It takes the familiar Simpsons aesthetic and applies it to other popular TV shows, like Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones. (ADN-Z runs the Draw The Simpsons Tumblr, so he's something of an expert.)
Walter, John Snow, and all the rest: Welcome to Springfield!

We all miss Edna Krabappel, but not as much as her husband.
The Simpsons already paid tribute to the actress who voiced the character, the late Marcia Wallace, back in November, but it was done with one of the show's iconic chalkboard gags. This post-episode clip is a little more involved, and a lot more touching.

The Simpsons began its 25th season in September, and Dec. 17, 2014, will be the show's 25th anniversary. Seeing as we're between those two milestones, we'll be taking any opportunity to celebrate America's favorite family.
With this feature, we decided to bypass the main members of the Simpson family and focus on the supporting characters – it's more fun figuring out if you're a Barney or an Otto than a Homer or Marge, anyway. Enjoy!

Sure, the eyes of the world will be trained on a certain prince and his fiancée in Westminster Abbey on April 29.
But they won't be the only ones to see in the wedding ceremony of the century. Meet the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr. Rowan Williams, who will officiate on the big day.
1. He's a poet
The spiritual head of the Anglican Church of England, Williams, 60, was born and raised in Swansea, Wales and, like the Welsh hero Dylan Thomas, he enjoys writing poetry. He's published two books of poems and shares Prince William and Kate Middleton's love for Wales.

Bart Simpson is finally going to get that lickin' he so richly deserves. He and the rest of his fun and dysfunctional family will be paid tribute by the U.S. Postal Service – you read that right – which is rolling out five 44-cent stamps, in honor of primetime's longest-running comedy's 2009 20th anniversary.
"The Simpsons are American icons, quite frankly," the Postal Services' spokesman, Mark Saunders, said in a statement on behalf of Bart's relatives: father Homer, mother Marge, and sisters Lisa and Maggie. "We're excited about it, and we think America will be, too. It's a great opportunity for us to reach a new generation of stamp enthusiasts."
The cartoon's creator, Matt Groening, has rendered the artwork for the Simpson stamps, to be previewed April 9. In all, the Postal Service annually receives more than 50,000 suggestions for its special stamp of approval, but issues only 20.
