As of April 18, 2012 the Springfield clan show is officially the longest-running animated series in US. Here are few little known facts about the program.
1. The town where Simpsons live is called Springfield to keep fans guessing which state the family actually resides in as there are dozens of cities with the same name across the country.
2. Maggie’s first word was “daddy” and Lisa’s was “Bart”. However, Bart’s one was “ay caramba!”.
3. The names of Kang and Kodos, the two alien characters, come from “Star Wars: The Original Series” where Kodos is a serial killer and Kang is a Klingon fighter.
4. There is a cartoon made by Bart in the episode “Angry Dad”. But as none of the show’s animators could create something resembling a child’s drawing, they got one of their colleagues’ kid to draw them.
5. All characters on the show have four fingers except for one who has five – God.
