When are Homer Simpson and his gang of friends going away from Springfield and your favorite primetime network series, The Simpsons? It’s hard to imagine this popular comedy can be canceled anytime soon. The Simpsons have become one of those longest-running primetime shows in America.

For starters, people have always been watching this series because it is funny, entertaining and most importantly, The Simpsons has a bunch of great actors among its core cast.
Homer is the main protagonist of the show. The funny thing is, he is not exactly what anyone would describe as being the wisest of individuals. Homer is constantly getting into trouble and 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 make the television show, The Simpsons, very special. She’s the girl Homer admires and she’s also the wife of Homer. Together they have three children called Lisa, Bart, and Marge. Selma also happens to be Homer’s best friend.
The third main part 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.

Finally, Homer comes to realize Selma needs to step in and be a better friend to Homer.
