From the Publisher

The Simpsons is one of the most successful shows ever to run on television. From its first moment on the air, the series''s rich characters, subversive themes, and layered humour resounded deeply with audiences both young and old who wanted more from their entertainment than what was being meted out by the likes of Full House, Growing Pains, and Family Matters. Spawned as an animated short on The Tracey Ullman Show-mere filler on the way to commercial breaks-the series grew from a controversial cult favourite to a mainstream powerhouse, and after twenty years, the residents of Springfield no longer simply hold up a mirror to our way of life: they have ingrained themselves in it.

Contrary to popular belief, The Simpsons did not spring out of Matt Goening''s brain, fully formed, like an uproarious Athena. Its inception was a process, with many parents, and like the family it depicts, the show''s creative forces have been riven by dysfunction from the get-go- outside egos clashing with studio executives and one another over credit for and control of a pop-culture institution worth billions. John Ortved''s oral history is the first-ever look behind the scenes at the creation and day-to-day running of the show, as told by many of the people who made it, amoung them writers, animators, producers, and network executives. It''s an intriguing yet hilarious tale, portraying more than two decades of betrayal, ambition, and love. Also available in paperback.

Seller Comments:

8vo. pp. xiii [3] 332."John Ortved's unauthorized history¿the first ever to look behind the scenes of this pop culture phenomenon¿tells how the series grew from a controversial cult favourite to a mainstream powerhouse thanks to a group of intense, thoughtful, and creative people who came together to make something unique in the history of American culture. The writers, animators, producers, and network executives¿as much a dysfunctional but loving family as the show's stars themselves¿are all here. It's an intriguing yet hilarious tale full of betrayal, ambition, and love. More than an amusing narrative of the making of The Simpsons, this is an intimate look at the characters behind this cultural juggernaut¿their creativity, intelligence, hubris, ego, and passion. The result is a book that is as amusing, dramatic, and compelling as the show itself. "
