The Simpson's televisions series has been called Americas first family but if you look into it you can see that it has become part of many other cultures as well. The show has been shown in sixty different countries in twenty different languages with sixty million spectators every week.

In some countries the language is changed in others certain things can not be shows and others are added for example some countries Homer's love for beer turns to love of soda. Fox has done a wonderful job globalizing the show and its popularity continues to grow. Even the movie that came to theatres was aired in seventy one markets.
