#450: Yet Another Milestone for The Simpsons

January 4, 2010 by  

0000050924_20080814185904To call the “The Simpsons” a series of milestones at the point is to be rather obvious. It’s now planning a special 450th episode and a special documentary to follow.

Entering its 20th season now, it’s far surpassed any expectations foisted upon it, when it debuted as an animated short on the Tracy Ullman Show.

The episode will air Sunday at 8 p.m. on Fox, and will be titled “Once Upon a Time in Springfield”, to be followed up by an hour documentary from Morgan Spurlock (of  “Super Size Me” fame), titled “The Simpsons 20th Anniversary Special in 3-D on Ice.”

The show took NBC‘s “Law & Order” and “Gunsmoke” on, and is now TV’s longest-running prime-time drama show ever. Truly amazing for a show considered a “novelty” when it debuted 20 years ago.
