Take that Shakespeare! Simpsons are New Doh-meo and Juliet

Simpsons News — Posted 04 Jun, 2004 by Scott

For Romeo, you'd better read D'ohmeo. Shakespeare's best-known lovers have been beaten in the romance stakes - by Homer and Marge Simpson.

The cartoon duo, who were born in a TV studio 17 years ago and star in the longest-running sitcom in US history, have been voted the greatest fictional couple of all time.

Romeo and Juliet, who were brought to life in a manuscript 409 years ago, came second. This is despite the fact they have been portrayed in countless performances over the centuries and in more than 30 TV and movie adaptations. Read the Full Story.

In third place were Mickey and Minnie Mouse, who made their first appearance together in the 1928 cartoon Plane Crazy.
