On July 28, the yellow Saturday: Marathon premiere of The Simpsons

On Saturday, July 28, FOX will turn yellow from morning to evening. The most popular animation family in the world, The Simpsons, shine during ‘Yellow Saturday’. On this day the complete 29th season in marathon form premieres.

A large part of the Netherlands will be in a traffic jam in the south on that particular Saturday. Those who stay at home can watch the latest adventures of cartoon characters Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie for almost ten hours via FOX. And since mobile Internet bundles are running at no extra cost across the EU, fans who are on their way to or abroad can not miss anything.

Worldwide phenomenon

The Simpsons have been a household name for almost 30 years. All the more reason to give the most famous animation family in the world an appropriate tribute. With the broadcasting of a completely new ‘The Simpsons’ season in marathon form, FOX is making a first. Never before has such a marathon with new material been shown on the channel.


Since the debut in 1989, the series ‘The Simpsons’ has been a great success and the adventures of the animated family continue to work on the laughter muscles. The series has grown into a groundbreaking, innovative and recognizable entertainment show worldwide. With the satirical humor of creator Matt Groening and producer James L. Brooks, ‘The Simpsons’ has made an indelible impression.
