In Tinkerlink, we love this animated series and we want to pay tribute to all the characters we’ve felt related to since the show first aired on a 19th of April.
For example, what would be of Homer, Lenny and Carl who work in Springfield’s power plant, if they couldn’t head to Moe’s tavern after a hard day’s work to relax and vent about life’s worries. It’s true that the town sheriff has been forced to kick them out of the bar after one too many beers, forcing Homer to head home to Marge, who’s happy to be a housewife and is always waiting for him.
Family is very important to everyone in Springfield, they all make a big effort to provide their kids with everything they need. Like poor Apu, who works 18 hours every day at the Kwik E-mart to make sure he can provide his wife and octuplets! Or like Ned Flanders, who after becoming a widower, was forced to become a mom and a dad at the same time, and was able to sustain his family thanks to the savings he used to open a store. He is known for the troubled relationship he has with Homer, and for the way he tries to instill his Christian devotion to everyone else in the city, just like reverend Lovejoy, who has the complicated task of running the church in Springfield.
But if Lovejoy has a tough time trying to control the city, we can’t even begin to imagine how hard it must be for Skinner and Edna, who work as professors at Springfield Elementary School; trying to keep Bart, Nelson, Ralph and Lewis at bay, through the countless disasters that Willie the gardener has been forced to fix.
Without a doubt, every character in this TV series, is a reflection of our society. Even Krusty the clown, who once became a congressman because he wanted to change the way things worked, or Smithers, Mr. Burns’ personal assistant, who always holds on to his professional ethic despite of Burn’s abuses, or even Homer’s father who finally retired after a lifetime of working, and keeps feeling neglected by his son.
Every character has a past, a talent, something to bring to the table, making Springfield a city that still charms us, even after 30 years of being around.
