So far in this list of the ten most fascinating original characters in animation history, we have seen a little boy, Norman from ParaNorman, animated using very advanced, gorgeous, stop-motion animation and a far-out space ranger, Buzz Lightyear, a character from the first fully computer animated feature whose design and overall character appeal continues to dazzle audiences twenty years later. However, number 8 on the list did not enter the spotlight in such an aesthetically appealing fashion. D’oh!
FXX Network (the spin-off of the FX Network) has started showing a continuous marathon of The Simpsons.

That means all 522 episodes (plus the movie) will play over 278 continuous hours.
