The Fox network's most successful series to date was a spin-off from "The Tracey Ullman Show" in which originally appeared as one minute shorts. The executive producers of that series, James L. Brooks and Sam Simon decided that these characters could support a half an hour series. It is now reported as the longest animated series in prime-time network television.

Kirk After Divorce
Kirk has been portrayed as a stereotypical middle-aged male loser and deadbeat dad. Much of Mr. Kirk's character revolves around his extreme emotional depression after his divorce from his wife Luann in A Milhouse Divided. He has been seen with one girlfriend since - Starla, a chainsmoking alcoholic who stole his car. She hasn't been seen since. Luann got custody of Milhouse when they divorced, but Kirk has visiting rights and is often seen with Milhouse in later episodes. Much to his displeasure, Milhouse often addresses him as "Weekend Dad". Kirk suffers from the need to cry all the time after his divorce, even in good times.In episode Large Marge Milhouse had an idea that krusty should cut his foot off so people would feel sorry for him and stop protesting; Bart replies "it didn't help your dad get your mom back"
