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.
WREX anchors Mitch Robinson, Kate Shannon, and yours truly, October 1989
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.
