The Simpsons Says Goodbye to Ned Flanders, Mr. Burns and Principal Skinner
- Harry Shearer
- The Simpsons
- The Simpsons has earned the reputation of being the longest running animated show on American TV
- The popularity of The Simpsons has made it a billion-dollar merchandising industry with over $2 billion in revenue during the first 14 months of sales
To cut it short
Fox has renewed The Simpsons for another two seasons but it was reported that the related delay was in fact because of Harry Shearer, who they claim was looking for a bigger piece of the merchandising gold mine. Although our favorite long-running animated series will definitely lose some of its characters, the show must go on, they say!
