Introduction and conclusion of an essay. The Simpsons and satire.


The American adult animated sitcom The Simpsons has shown a large amount of satires through every episode. These critics are engaged with significant and quotidian political, social and religious issues. Among other things, The Simpsons exposes the ineptitude and pretense of virtue of pop psychology, the shallowness of public education, the venality of corporate greed, ongoing environmental degradation, commercialism, consumerism and radical phenomena such as homophobia or xenophobia. Moreover, they are able to make a great impact, considering that The Simpsons is translated into 45 languages.


In conclusion, The Simpsons’ episodes are funny and warning at the same time because their matters are daily, although sometimes overdone. As a knowing and sharp satire upon the complex, excessive and hypocritical state of contemporary America, The Simpsons has become a recognizable cultural source for examining shifting political, social and religious trends in the United States. For this reason, I want to provoke you into seeing The Simpsons in a new light next time.

Leave a comment below if you remember any satirical issue on The Simpsons.
