Homer Simpson joins the official Baseball Hall of Fame

Yes, you read that headline right: a fictional cartoon character has been inducted into a real-world Hall of Fame to honor historic Major League Baseball players. While it may sound silly, the honorary induction is to celebrate the 25th anniversary of The Simpsons episode where Homer played for the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant softball team, leading the team to victory in the city championship. Titled "Homer at the Bat," the third-season episode originally aired back on February 20th, 1992.

Make the perfect Simpsons GIF with Frinkiac

After 27 seasons, and nearly 600 episodes, it feels like The Simpsons has managed to cover every topic possible.

Needless to say, there's a Simpsons quote, picture or gif for almost any occasion.

Motion-captured Homer Simpson to give live Q&A on TV

It's some time since The Simpsons did something truly fresh and ground breaking, but now it's breaking that streak in a big way. An upcoming episode is set to feature a live segment with Homer Simpson, where he will answer questions from fans and comment on the day's news (in order to prove the questions weren't picked in advance).

The Simpsons tipped to finally end within the next 4 years

The Simpsons, the animated comedy that grew from having a small but loyal audience after its 1989 debut, to being the American television icon it is today, may finally have an end date. The show is widely considered to have peaked around season 10, and has been on a steady decline since then, albeit with the occasional highlight. Maybe that's just what happens after over 25 years on the air? Either way, every fan of the show has wondered at some point when The Simpsons will come to an end, and now one of the show's creators has given a timeframe.

The Simpsons couch gag has Rick and Morty crash in

Some bad news might have surfaced on The Simpsons front, but one of its upcoming couch gags is a bright spot among it all. There are some guest animators in play, as Bart laments, and they bring with them Rick and Morty who crash -- literally crash -- the Simpsons' family time television watching. It is somewhat long as far as couch gags go, and is wonderful all around...if you've a careful eye, you'll notice there's even a moment of acknowledgement for the Futurama fans out there.
