The Simpson family first appeared in The Tracey Ullman Show on April 19, 1987 and were featured the first three seasons. Well i watcing they Simpsons old episodes youtube and are so funny. Well The shorts were featured on the first three seasons on The Tracey Ullman Show. By the fourth and last season of The Tracey Ullman Show the first season of the half-hour show was on the air. In the two first seasons the shorts were divided into three or four parts, but in the third season they were played as a single story.
Tracey Ullman later filed a lawsuit, claiming that her show was the source of The Simpsons' success and therefore should receive a share of the show's profit. Eventually the courts ruled in favor of the network.... this is The Simpsons first episode Good Night Simpsons.
*sigh* Oh memories
