Simpsons, The
a humorous US television cartoon programme about a family called Simpson. The children argue and fight a lot. Their father loves his children but spends a lot of time watching TV, eating, and drinking beer. Many people think it shows the problems and worries that real families experience, which the 'perfect' families in some other television shows do not.
