Simpsons Cartoon Art from the Collection of William Heeter and Kristi Correa

Double Simpsons anniversary
The Simpsons premiered on American television with a Christmas special on December 17, 1989. For the past thirty-five seasons and 757 episodes, the TV series has entertained audiences worldwide with biting satire, quirky ideas, and a merciless look at Western society. As the longest-running primetime animated series and the TV series with the most guest stars, The Simpsons holds two world records in the Guinness Book of World Records. The Simpsons are also immortalized with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

2024 is a special Simpsons year: the TV series has been running for thirty-five years and its creator Matt Groening is celebrating his seventieth birthday. For the first time in Europe, the Karikaturmuseum Krems is showing works from the extraordinary Simpsons collection of William Heeter and Kristi Correa.

The Springfield universe visits Krems
With over 150 hand-drawn images and animation cels from the first thirteen seasons—after which the TV series was produced entirely digitally—the exhibition will showcase the adventures and pranks of the Simpson family. The couch gags are integral to the opening sequences of the series: Homer, Marge, Lisa, Bart, and Maggie appear as skeletons, with pacifiers in their mouths, or in miniature on the sofa. Cartoons about the three-eyed fish Blinky or Homer’s dream about toilets bring a smile to your face. Also featured are cartoons with Mr. Burns, Homer’s boss and owner of the city’s nuclear power plant, Bart’s best friend Milhouse, as well as other well-known characters from the fictional small town of Springfield.

Storyboards and sketches offer a thrilling glimpse of the characters as well as the art and process of animation. Fun facts and photo spots ensure a unique Simpsons experience at the Karikaturmuseum Krems.

Curators: Gottfried Gusenbauer, artistic director of the Karikaturmuseum Krems, and Anna Steinmair, curator of the Karikaturmuseum Krems
