Ever wondered why the Springfield residents are all yellow? Creator Matt Groening told the BBC: “An animator came up with the Simpsons' yellow and as soon as she showed it to me I said: 'This is the answer!' because when you're flicking through channels with your remote control, and a flash of yellow goes by, you'll know you're watching The Simpsons.”

The Simpsons take on Shakespeare's Hamlet Shakespeare had to write his plays in a way that pleased the intellectuals and royalty who funded his plays and the groundlings who would throw food or pee on the stage if they were not entertained. So Shakespeare had the difficult takes of combing grotesque and slap stick humor with intellectual devices. The Simpsons is also like that. There is a lot of slap stick and grotesque humor, but then there are episodes like this which saterise great works of literature or current events.
