There's something about the yellow cartoon characters that have serious staying power. Their family may not exactly be oozing with kindness, but they've captured a real-life relationship that speaks to modern America. After all, they're in their 20th season in prime time. The show has won a slew of awards and broken plenty of television records. Not that that's why we tune in. You'll find us in front of the tube Sunday nights because though they're cartoons, The Simpsons are as real as a family can get—they argue, slam doors and sometimes hate each other, but ultimately, they stick together.
