Fox's hit animated series The Simpsons blurs the lines around family-friendly comedy, but these ten moments between Homer and Marge show times when the series has dipped into more adult content. Created by Matt Groening, The Simpsons debuted in 1989 on Fox, and shows the many wild adventures of the titular family. Through more than 650 episodes, the show has given each of its main characters a chance to shine at some point.
Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, Maggie, and Grandpa Simpson are the most prominently featured characters, but it's Homer who's the unquestioned lead character. The working class man doesn't have the easiest time balancing work, social life, and his family, but that hasn't usually led to too much contention between Homer and his wife Marge. Their love is one of the many through-lines that The Simpsons leans on, and they haven't been afraid to show just how much they still love each other on a few occasions.
In Screen Rant's latest video dedicated to The Simpsons, we take a look at ten times when the show made it clear that Homer and Marge still find time to make love in their busy lives. The series has stopped short of completely showing the pair in the act, but they don't really leave much up to the imagination in most instances.
As made clear in the video, Homer and Marge have frequently found a way to keep the spark alive in their relationship. Even though they've barely aged a day during their 30-year run on television, it's nice to see that they're still very committed to one another after all these years. The Simpsons may be far from a perfect family, but at least there's a strong, loving relationship between the parents that rarely wavers.
These examples may not be the last time The Simpsons shows just how much Homer and Marge still like to get it on either. Fox has already renewed the series for two more additional seasons, which will give the couple a few more opportunities to show their passion for one another. That said, with the Disney-Fox deal set to close in a matter of days, it'll be worth keeping an eye on how The Simpsons evolves under the watchful eye of the Mouse House. Disney's extremely family-friendly approach could be passed along to some of Fox's own properties. There's no guarantee that this will happen though, so just how often and explicitly Homer and Marge's feelings for each other are shown could continue for as long as the show airs.
