News: Puberty Just Isn't Funny.. Sorry Bart

Simpsons News — Posted 28 Jul, 2003 by Scott

Well poor Bart Simpsons won't be hitting puberty anytime soon. Maybe the way that the show stays so funny is because he doesn't; atleast that's what this NY Times writer thinks. "No matter how many laughs a television show can squeeze from an impish boy, cracking wise and bugging out his eyes at various oppressors, a sudden end to the laughter looms. The comedy often stops when puberty starts. Only one show has succeeded in keeping a kid in the lead for a decade: "The Simpsons" with the animated Bart Simpson. Watching Bart never mature is considered a key to its enduring appeal. "Early on, I know that the powers that be decided that no one would age," said Tim Long, the show's current head writer. "A kid with a starter 'stache, that would just be unpleasant," he added. "You don't worry about his future because in a way he has none." Sorry Bart.. read the full story here.

Ha Ha!
