The Simpsons just celebrated its 750th episode by including 750 characters from the series in the opening credits sequence.
In the 750th episode of I Simpson, 750 of the series’ historic characters return to Springfield in the opening credits sequence. The long-running animated sitcom wrapped up its 34th season with its 750th episode on May 21 titled “Homer’s Adventures Through the Windshield“.
Although the 34th season of The Simpsons has come to an end, the show will continue as it was renewed this January for seasons 35 and 36. With the 750th episode of The Simpsons, longtime fans were delighted with a version without precedents of the show’s famous opening sequence which celebrates the many of the faces who have passed through the city over the decades.
The sequence features characters such as cruel babysitter Lucille Botzcowski, Springfield Elementary teacher Ms. Peyton, played by Kerry Washington, and many more. The show, which has been on the air continuously since 1989, has introduced a notable number of characters over the years, including residents of Springfield itself, passing celebrities, or even visitors from the distant world of Rigel VII.
However, while The Simpsons is undoubtedly a series full of memorable personalities, the show also had to say goodbye to many fan-favorite characters, such as incompetent lawyer Lionel Hutz and discredited actor Troy Maclure, both played by the deceased Phil Hartman in 1998. As well as the teacher Edna Krabappel who said goodbye to fans after the death of Marcia Wallace in 2013.
