The Simpsons is an American animated sitcom created by Matt Groening for the Fox Broadcasting Company (Fox). The series is a satirical parody of a middle class American lifestyle epitomized by its eponymous family, which consists of Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie. The show is set in the fictional town of Springfield, and lampoons American culture, society and television, and many aspects of the human condition.[1] The family was conceived by Groening shortly before a pitch for a series of animated shorts with producer James L. Brooks. Groening created a dysfunctional family and named the characters after members of his own family, substituting Bart for his own name. The shorts became a part of The Tracey Ullman Show on April 19, 1987.[2] After a three-season run, the sketch was developed into a half-hour prime time show and became a hit series for Fox.

On July 21, 2015, showrunner Al Jean announced no more seasons would be released on DVD and Blu-ray in favor of digital distribution.[3]
