About the Logo
The Simpsons logo features the family members Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie in a stylized cartoon form. The logo has undergone several changes over the course of the show’s history. The original logo, which was used during the first season of the show, featured the characters in a more realistic style, with more detailed features and a more subdued color palette. The current logo, which has been in use since the show’s second season, features the characters in a more exaggerated, cartoonish style with bolder colors. The logo is usually set against a black background and accompanied by the title of the show in yellow, stylized, comic-book lettering. This logo is widely recognized and has become one of the most iconic logos in popular culture.
