The Simpsons are the eponymous family of the popular cartoon The Simpsons, which has been a mainstay of the Fox Broadcasting Company's primetime schedule since 1989. The Simpsons is currently the longest-running primetime comedy in television history.
The family consists of Homer, a technician at a nuclear power plant; Marge, a homemaker; three children: Bart (for whom the War Between the Provinces character Marshall Bart of Detina is named), Lisa, and Maggie, an infant; Santa's Little Helper, a dog; and a series of cats named Snowball. The extended family includes Homer's parents, Abe Simpson and the late Mona Simpson; Marge's mother, Jacqueline Bouvier; Marge's sisters, Patty and Selma Bouvier; and Selma's adoptive daughter Ling.
The Simpsons in Southern VictoryEdit
In 1943, the Simpsons lost their dog, Santa's Little Helper. They desperately begged their old friend, Confederate President Jake Featherston, to organize a nationwide search. Featherston replied that, as the Second Great War was raging, he would not be able to help them; he could not spare the military personnel for such an operation.
Yes, we know this scene never took place. This is an inside-joke for the mods' amusement. Get over it.
