The animated family from the city of Springfield has long used this theme over their 23 seasons (and counting), with the final moment of the family coming together on the couch different each week. Also different each week is the phrase young Bart Simpson writes on the chalkboard as punishment from his teacher. In the example above, street artist Banksy puts his spin on the classic opening credits. The show has been on the air since 1989, first premiering in short form on 'The Tracy Ullman' show in 1987.
