Publishers Description: The behind-the-scenes story of how America's favourite nuclear family first arrived at a TV near you and how they grew into world-wide icons Ever since "The Simpsons" first aired on the short-lived "Tracey Ullman Show" way back in 1987, the cartoon has deliciously skewered the foibles of American life, evolving into a cultural institution that reaches across the generations. As satire, it's sharp and funny. As a pop phenomenon it's in a league of it's own. And with Planet Simpson, it finally gets the sprawling, multidimensional critical look it so richly deserves.
