'The Simpsons' hit milestone with 600th episode

Ay caramba!

‘The Simpsons’ hit a TV milestone with their 600th episode.

The Fox animated sitcom, featuring the gang of Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie, premiered in 1989 and will land in television history Sunday with Season 28 behind only “Gunsmoke,” which premiered in 1955 and ran for 20 seasons and 635 episodes – the most for any scripted, prime time, live-action series in the United States.

Now the show enters Season 28, and has become part of the American cultural landscape, continuing to make history: Sunday’s episode, “Treehouse of Horror XXVII,” will be the first TV show to feature virtual reality.

'The Simpsons' airs at 8 p.m. ET Sundays on FOX.
