- Homer Simpson

The Simpsons debuted in 1989, and went on to become the longest-running cartoon in history. The satirical comedy captured the hearts of the American public through its depictions of real-world issues and events.

Homer Simpson is one of the show's primary protagonists. He is the husband of Marge Simpson and the father of Bart, Maggie, and Lisa. Homer is named after the father of the series' creator, Matt Groening.

Homer is often depicted as lazy and ignorant, but he has positive qualities as well, including love and devotion to his family and occasional bravery. Homer satirically represents a blue-collar, middle-class, or working-class American. He works at a nuclear power plant and spends his off-hours at Moe's Tavern or watching TV.

Homer and his family have long been considered pop culture icons. Together, they have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Since 1998, Homer's catchphrase of "D'oh!" has appeared in The New Oxford Dictionary of English, and the Oxford English Dictionary since 2001.
