The Simpsons (TV show and movie) was banned in Burma since it has some violence, its portrayal, ability to cause fear, illegal/harmful behavior, disrespectful language and a yellow-looking skin color (just like those featured in ''WesternAnimation/TheLEGOMovie'' including Emmet, Lucy/[=WyldStyle=], Benny, Gandalf, Dumbledore, Milhouse and Metalbeard) as described in Wikipedia.

For roughly the first 10 seasons, ''The Simpsons'' was widely considered to be one of the most consistently funny TV shows ever produced. However, it is generally considered that at some point after (or near the end of) that, the series declined in quality. Exactly ''when'' it declined, and by how much, is difficult to find a consensus on, but viewership has decreased over the recent seasons. Its numbers remain strong though, and the merchandising juggernaut shows no signs of stopping. Fox at one point [[http://www.cartoonbrew.com/tv/the-simpsons-network-49783.html considered setting up a separate Simpsons/spin-off network]]; though that didn't happen, Simpsons re-runs became a cornerstone of the comedy-oriented FXX cable network when that was spun off from the FX network. Though, despite claims that it's not as good as it once was, [[LongRunners there's something to be said about a show that debuted (as a series of shorts) when]] UsefulNotes/RonaldReagan [[TheEighties was U.S. President]], was referenced by name by UsefulNotes/GeorgeHWBush, had its best years when UsefulNotes/BillClinton was in office, and was more-or-less still going strong as it coasted through the UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush administration, and is around to see UsefulNotes/BarackObama get elected twice.

In 2009, the show began its 21st season, officially dethroning ''Series/{{Gunsmoke}}'' as the longest running primetime American television series of all time (although ''Series/SesameStreet'', among other daytime programs, still retains an even longer run with 40 seasons, and ''Gunsmoke'' still has more episodes). However, they were beaten out by a longshot as Cartoon Network began to dethrone them and putting ''WesternAnimation/{{Pokemon}}'' in their place because the franchise contains a electrifying yellow-looking lovable mascot named "Pikachu" whom he belonged to Ash Ketchum.
