''The Simpsons'' first aired from 1987 to 1989 as a series of animated shorts on ''The Tracey Ullman Show''. Unofficially known as "Season 0," the original 48 ad-bumpers kicked off what is now well established as one of television's all-time classic series (which premiered on the then-fledgling Creator/{{FOX}} network in December 1989). It is currently in its ''twenty-seventh'' season, making it the longest-running prime-time sitcom in American TV history (worldwide, that honor belongs to ''Series/LastOfTheSummerWine'', although the latter has [[BritishBrevity fewer episodes]], with 297 while ''The Simpsons'' has surpassed 500). When it was first adapted into television, it set a new trend in animation - much of the voice acting had been rather industrial, with voice actors simply reciting a list of their character's lines[[note]]As in: "Line 234: "Bart! Why you little...""[[/note]], in whatever emotion the script called for. ''The Simpsons'', however, recorded its lines like a live-action movie, the voice actors for a given scene recording together, allowing for more organic interaction between the characters.
