For starters, most people have always been watching this series because it’s funny, entertaining and most of all, The Simpsons has a lot of great actors among its core cast.
Homer is the main protagonist of the series. The funny thing is, he isn’t exactly what anyone would describe as being the wisest of individuals. Homer is constantly getting into trouble and that he just does not know how to make things right again. One of his friends, Selma, tries to help him out but Homer just doesn’t want to listen. He doesn’t really need to apologize for his behavior but Selma just wants to get things back to normal and work things out.
Selma is another of the characters which produce the television series, The Simpsons, very special. She is the girl Homer admires and she’s also the wife of Homer. Selma also happens to be Homer’s best friend.
The third principal character of The Simpsons is Homer’s officemate, Selma. She is the wife of Homer and the mother of his three children, Bart, Lisa, and Marge. Selma is a valuable part of Homer’s life since she is the reason that he decided to quit his job in the first place, after having a fight with a co-worker over something she did. Eventually, Homer comes to realize that Selma needs to step in and become a better friend to Homer.

Nevertheless, in an episode entitled Treehouse of horror’s Homer becomes bitter and begins to deny Marge in every way.
Marge was Homer’s best friend when he was a child and she has been by his side ever since. In the first season episode, Bart Simpson went on a treasure quest with Marge but when they got lost Marge asked Homer for help and he went to look for her in the state of Alaska where Marge stated that she had been seeing Bart all of this time. This caused Homer to get depressed and he proceeded to punch a hole in the car of Marge’s best friend, Mrs. Patty.
