The Simpsons Details

The Simpsons is an animated comedy about a middle-class family residing in the fictional town of Springfield. The Simpsons family consists of parents Homer and Marge and their three children, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie. Homer is a simple minded, lazy, and overweight father who works at the town’s power plant. Marge is a kind, patient, housewife who has to put up with Homer’s buffoonery. Bart is the trouble-making prankster who does poorly in school while Lisa is a genius bookworm who excels at almost everything. Maggie is the baby of the family.

The rest of the town is made up of hundreds of iconic characters including a corrupt mayor, an incompetent police chief, an evil billionaire, a lonely bartender, a pious neighbor, and many, many more. The main cast members who provide the voices for the family and several of the supporting characters are Dan Castellaneta, Julie Kavner, Nancy Cartwright, Yeardly Smith, Hank Azaria, and Harry Shearer.

The longevity of the show is due to impeccable writing, creative storytelling, and well developed characters. The family’s lives are full of adventure with trips to New York, Australia, Japan, and even outer space. The Simpsons is a hilarious and extremely entertaining take on the animated adult comedy.

The Monorail Song
Lyle Lanley: Y'know, a town with money is like a mule with a spinning wheel. No one knows how he got it and danged if he knows how to use it!
(audience laughs)
Homer: Heh heh! Mule.
Lyle Lanley: The name's Lanley. Lyle Lanley. And I come before you good people tonight with an idea. Probably the greatest... Aw, it's not for you. It's more of a Shelbyville idea.
Mayor Quimby: Now wait just a minute! We're twice as smart as the people of Shelbyville! Just tell us your idea and we'll vote for it!
Lyle Lanley: All right, I tell you what I'll do. I'll show you my idea! I give you the Springfield Monorail! (audience gasps) I've sold monorails to Brockway, Ogdenville, and North Haverbrooke, and by gum, it put them on the map!
Well, sir, there's nothing on earth
Like a genuine,
Bona fide,
Electrified,
Six-car
Monorail! ...
What'd I say?
Ned Flanders: Monorail!
Lyle Lanley: What's it called?
Patty & Selma: Monorail!
Lyle Lanley: That's right! Monorail!
(crowd chants "Monorail" softly and rhythmically)
Miss Hoover: I hear those things are awfully loud.
Lyle Lanley: It glides as softly as a cloud.
Apu: Is there a chance the track could bend?
Lyle Lanley: Not on your life, my Hindu friend.
Barney: What about us brain-dead slobs?
Lyle Lanley: You'll all be given cushy jobs.
Grampa: Were you sent here by the devil?
Lyle Lanley: No, good sir, I'm on the level.
Chief Wiggum: The ring came off my pudding can.
Lyle Lanley: Take my pen knife, my good man.
I swear it's Springfield's only choice...
Throw up your hands and raise your voice!
All: Monorail!
Lyle Lanley: What's it called?
All: Monorail!
Lyle Lanley: Once again...
All: Monorail!
