Mr Magic
His IQ is his own shoe size, he's not Father of the Year material, but he's an animated icon.

The Simpsons are an enigma. To see how they evolved from a little sketch on Tracy Ullman to today, most people familiar with it can look back at any point in their life and relate to something on the show.

I love the character, only one on the show that truly made me laugh.

It may sound silly to ask that animated characters be human and believable, but that was something early seasons of the show did very well. Homer used to be a little dim and angry, but he was ultimately well-meaning and loving. Now he is a dope who just does stupid stuff for no reason at all, and it's supposed to be funny(?) but it's not.

I love watching the Treehouse of Horror episodes as a Halloween tradition.

Never give Homer a nailgun.

I've recently found the Zombie Simpsons webpage, which is extremely thorough in examining and explaining the decline of The Simpsons, along with some reveling in the early years of the show. I encourage anybody who also enjoys long-winded pop culture critique to check it out.

Zombie Simpsons wrote:
When he wasn’t getting hurt, Homer was acting in increasingly bizarre and, for lack of a better term, cartoonish ways. Homer had always been, in the words of Llewellyn Sinclair, “thoughtless, violent and loud”, but there had also been an underlying decency to him. He repeatedly disappointed his wife and daughter, disliked his son, and was a generally self centered person, but he didn’t go out of his way to torment other people, wasn’t prone to screaming fits, and didn’t suffer from instant mood swings. On the contrary, Homer’s defining traits were his profound laziness and general desire to be left alone.

By Season 10, this new Homer was in almost every episode. Fans dubbed him “Jerkass Homer” after a phrase he used repeatedly while yelling at random people in the Season 9 episode “The Joy of Sect”. Jerkass Homer is the one who, in “Maximum Homerdrive”, is so boastful of his stomach capacity that he gets into an eating contest with a perfect stranger, accidentally kills him, takes over his trucking route, and acts like such an asshole that the other truckers try to kill him before the end of the episode.

The show is not as good as it once was but, I'll miss Homer when it's cancelled and gone.

Today in 1987, Homer made his debut on the Tracey Ullman Show. Happy Birthday Homer!
