Springfield is the home of the Simpsons. Supporting the family on a nuclear plant salary is Homer. He is a man with a big heart, but not a lot of brains. His wife, Marge, holds up the household with her intelligence and sass, but must also contend with three energy-filled children. Her youngest, Maggie, is still a baby with a persistent pacifier in her mouth. The smartest daughter, Lisa, is eight years old, but speaks like a college-educated woman. Bart, the troublemaker of the family, is 10 years old. He keeps Homer and Marge on their toes as he creates problems at school and home. With a host of friends and family that float in and out of their lives, the Simpsons keep their household as simple as possible to support everyone's needs, from lottery pursuits to science project mayhem.
