St Patrick's Day treat for Simpsons fans

Fans of The Simpsons are in for a special St Patrick's Day treat on Tuesday when an episode of the hit cartoon series will be premiered on this side of the Atlantic.It will be shown on Sky1 ahead of its broadcast on US network Fox for the first time in the show's 20-year history.

I'm sure it will be a very funny episode although we won't see it because we don't subscribe to Sky. I think it's amazing though that a Simpsons episode is being shown in the UK before America! I think The Simpsons is a brilliant show. It must be the most famous cartoon family in the world.


  1. We love the Simpsons in our house and my daughter is resheduling her entire life so she watch it.

  2. We love the show too, daffy. We have to make do with the repeats on Channel 4 though.
