D'oh!

This show is appropriate for kids 10+. There is some language such as a--, d---, h---, and an occasional b----. Homer has a huge drinking problem, and Otto, the school bus driver is always high. Several teens smoke. Kids get beat up by bullies often. Lots of fat jokes, religious jokes, poor people jokes, etc. Although the Simpson family is sometimes dysfunctional and mean, they still love each other.

I really like the Simpsons, and we sometimes let our kids watch episodes that we previewed, but honestly there are a lot of episodes that are just inappropriate message, language and sexuality-wise. This show isn't really meant for kids, per se. So, I would preview episodes and keep in mind how messages come across to children, especially those in their formative years.

Great for parents there, cant't punish there children.

It's a great episode of Simpsons. It's the perfect family comedy episode. Homer is a good rolemodel in this episode, because, in the start he can's punish Bart, but in the end he did the worst punish ever if you were Bart. Homer giver Bart the punishment that he can't watch the new movie ever, and Bart love this movie.

Still going strong

It's easy to see why this show has been running for twenty years. Still, despite the fact that it's animated, it's not for young kids. Sexual innuendo is frequent, and there's partial nudity (sex scenes) in some episodes. Language is used sometimes, but it's mild. Homer and his friends drink excessively at a bar. Authority figures are incompetent, Homer is abusive, teachers smoke, and bullies beat up nerds. A lot.

The language is mild, the violence is silly, but some of the sexual references are very inapropriate and funny for adults and 11 year olds who know what sex is and how it is bad. It is mainly up to the parent to decide, and some shows are appropriate, while others are not.

PG-rated Clean Humor Still Exists!! Fun for the Whole Family!!

This fantastic program comes on FOX Sunday nights at 7:00 (central time; time slot changes occasionally due to other programs). It has been on the air since 1989 and is still funny fun for the whole family. Jokes are good for both parents and children who are old enough to understand that a cartoon is not reality, so I'd say age 9+. It is chock-full of "Homer Humor" for adults and "Bart Humor" for kids. The only bad thing in the show is how Homer's alcohol abuse is depicted as having no negatives and "Itchy & Scratchy" jokes can sometimes be disturbingly violent, which is the joke. Bottom line is the show is normally rated TV-PG DLV. Ages 9+. 5/5 stars. Fun for the whole family. Enjoy.

Appropriate but Not

The Simpsons is Okay. The swear word are used in a Dumb manner. Itchy and scratchy is the worst part. The Show is TV-PG and 8 episodes Were TV-14. Would have been 7 if the FCC Did not go Coo-coo for Drug use(One episode changed from TV-PG-V TO TV-14-V for that and Austraila rated it M for drug use(Weekend at Bursie's). The S content is very low. Violence is Slapstick at Most. IFFY FOR 7-8 AND The Limit is(Drumroll please)9+

The Best Show Ever

I love this show (maybe it has something to do with Jon Lovitz being on it often). My youngest has been watching it since she was a toddler (since 1992). It's very witty and great!

I heart the Simpsons

America needs to lighten up. The Simpsons are this generation's Father Knows Best, except in this case, the father doesn't.
