Where were you on December 17th, 1989?
(CBS SF) – The Berlin Wall had just come down, Taylor Swift had just been born, and the longest running American sitcom made it’s broadcast debut.
Twenty-five years later “The Simpsons” is considered one of the most important shows in television history.
In 2014, KBCW 44 Cable 12 will be re-living that TV history from the very beginning.
Starting Monday, January 6th, KBCW-TV presents The Simpsons Classics: a Bay Area broadcasting event presenting the first 20 years of “The Simpsons” in order from the very beginning.
Witness Homer’s first industrial accident, Marge’s very first groan of disappointment and the introduction of Troy McClure, Disco Stu, and Blinky the three-eyed fish. Re-introduce yourself to every character, every guest star and every pop culture element as KBCW presents the classic episodes that have not been seen on Bay Area broadcast television in years. Catch every episode of the first 20 years of the Simpsons in order.
KBCW will be running the first decade of the Simpsons at 6:00pm, starting with season 1, episode 1, then running the second decade at 10:30 p.m. starting with season 10 episode 1.
Watch them all again and see why the Simpsons is, was, and will always be the most important show in television.
