I Love The Simpsons
I am fascinated by The Simpsons, American cartoon TV series. I love every member in the American family of the Simpsons. There are no rigid and unsavory moral teachings or hackneyed storylines something like a handsome prince finally married with a beautiful princess. I have a lot of fun and learn love and American culture through it. Even many scenarios look so familiar as if they just had happened on me, my friends or my neighbors not far ago.
Homer Simpson was the father. He was not rich, not capable, not handsome-- just a very little hair, and had shortcomings as well. However he was a lovely daddy, who always had fun with his mischievous son—Bart, they played video games together, even made fun on the roof dangerously. How wonderful the dad was! Many Chinese parents always preach at their kids and expect their own kids to go one better but they forget to laugh with kids.
Marge Simpson was the affectionate mother. She wore a towering beehive of hairdo. Well, I was quite impressed by one of her lines –There’re always some times in your life, you will say I am with you. Yes, she did it. Her husband was not rich but she always firmly stayed with him without whines or complaints. I learn how to love from Mrs. Simpson.
When come to Bart, oh Bart, the brat, he was the soul of the cartoon series. He was so mischievous, rolling on skating board, cheating in exams, quarrelling with his sister Margie, even sawing off the head of the statue who was the founder of Springfield. He was always a big headache of his family and school. Aha, but as Homer Simpson said if a boy isn’t naughty, he can’t be a boy any more. I do believe it. It's Bart who made the cartoon so lively and colourful.
No matter, how the Simpsons fought or quarreled with each other, they always united together as a family and faced up the music whenever they run into any difficulties.
We’re living in a world in which undeclared aggression, war, hypocrisy, chicanery, bombing, killing, murdering are part of our daily live. Now and then, some hypercritic big shots of politicians really dampen me with their scandals, from ex US President Bill Clinton, former New York Governor Elliot Splitz, to the vice president wannabe Senator John Edwards’ extramarital affair, which is the headline story of today’s news in CNN.
The adorable family of the Simpsons let me forget the ugliness in the real life and keep an up-beat spirits. It presents a lovely, loyal, optimistic ordinary American family life before my eyes. The Simpsons drives clouds away over me and makes me beam.
