#4399 – 2009 44c Homer Simpson

The Simpsons
Homer

Issue Date: May 7, 2009
City: Los Angeles, CA

Homer, the patriarch of an animated television family, is an over-the-top version of the American dad.  Critically acclaimed but controversial, the show is the longest-running primetime show in America.

Homer is best known for his outbursts of stupidity, gluttony, and fits of rage.  This leads him to try jumping the Springfield Gorge with a children’s skateboard.  Led by his stomach, Homer eats everything from doughnuts to play-dough.  But Homer gets the most laughs when he’s angry.  Set off by the smallest act, Homer often chokes Bart, challenges people to duels, and even punches the oldest man in Springfield.

Homer’s lack of discipline with Bart has caused parent groups to boycott the show.  Religious groups have also been critical of Homer, who often falls asleep in church, prays to Superman, and skips Mass to watch football games. 

Although Homer is unappreciated at work and home, he is loved by fans and critics alike.  Over the past twenty years, the show has won a total of 24 Primetime Emmy Awards in three different categories.  In 1996, the television show won a Peabody Award for “stinging social satire,” the first animated series to win.
