Overview

Ever wonder what Bart does when he's off camera? Want to know the special diet that keeps him forever young, how he feels about his genius creators or if he's considering a spin-off series? Hey, wake up and eat his shorts! He's a cartoon character, man! He doesn't have an off-camera life. But the person who knows more about The Simpsons than anyone else is here to tell all about the show. Nancy Cartwright, the ultimate Simpsons insider, traces The Simpsons' rapid rise to wild popularity, offers hilarious anecdotes about cast members and guest stars -- including Mel Gibson, Meryl Streep, Elizabeth Taylor and Phil Hartman -- and reveals what it's like to be at the center of an American institution, one that reinvented the sitcom and changed the face of American television. Nancy also takes you behind the scenes into the never-before-revealed world of Simpsons animation. You'll follow the process of creating an entire season, from pencil to screen, and see how these magicians defy the laws of physics and turn out twenty-two episodes a year that take ten months each. No way, man! Yes, way.

Packed with more information than has ever been revealed about the longest-running animated show, here is the perfect book for the millions of Simpsons fans who can't get enough of America's favorite dysfunctional family.
