Simpsons Artist Draws All 241 Characters In Season 1, Epic Journey Took 18 Months

The Simpsons fan artist David Cooper sets out on an epic journey to draw every Simpsons character, beginning with an 18-month task to capture each of the original 241 Springfield residents seen in season 1. Following their debuts as part of an animated segment on The Tracy Ullman Show, The Simpsons made their full television debut in December 1981 with "Simpsons Roasting On An Open Fire". The Simpsons' premiere episode was nominated for two Emmys, while episode 9 "Life in the Fast Lane" would win the Emmy for Outstanding Animated Program, with season 1 ultimately leaving a strong impression for a show that continues to have a lasting impact.
