Notes

  1. The first season of the show started airing on December 17, 1989, and before that the show had consisted of several Tracey Ullman Show shorts.
  2. The full title is "$pringfield (Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Legalized Gambling".
  3. Admittedly, probably known as "Simpsoncalifragilisticexpiala(D'oh!)cious" to all but the script writers.
  4. And yet again, probably "E-I-E-I-D'oh" to non-script writers.
  5. Stylized as "HOMЯ", but linking to that breaks the site.
  6. Or "I, D'oh!-Bot".
  7. Or "G.I. D'oh!"
