A deal has been struck between 20th Century Fox Television, producers and actors to save “The Simpsons,” the longest running sitcom on television. Honestly, I didn’t even know the show was still on until news of a possible cancellation starting making headlines. Back in the day I watched it religiously, and then lost interest.
“The Simpsons” has been on since 1989, a remarkable accomplishment by any television standard. That same year a certain anchor made his television debut at WREX-TV in Rockford, Illinois and decided for Halloween ’89 to dress up as the most popular guy on the airwaves, Bart Simpson.
It took forever to get that yellow paint/makeup out of my skin and hair! It is hard to see in this picture but I actually spraypainted a pair of old sneakers blue to match Bart’s.
