The Simpsons

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.

Character Bio

Principal Skinner photo
Principal W. Seymour Skinner (born July 8, 1953 in Capital City as Armin Tamzarian[1][2]) is a fictional character on the animated sitcom The Simpsons, voiced by Harry Shearer. He is of Armenian descent. He is the principal of Springfield Elementary School, and a stereotypical educational bureaucrat. He struggles to control the crumbling school and is constantly engaged in a battle against its inadequate resources, apathetic and bitter teachers, and often rowdy and unenthusiastic students, Bart Simpson being a standout example. A strict disciplinarian, Skinner has an uptight, militaristic attitude that stems from his years in the army, service in the Vietnam War, and experiences as a POW in Vietnam.
