Simpson Family
“Get inspired to produce visual material transcending internal values”
In this blog, I would like to navigate around some reflections about the animated series "Simpson Family" in the media industry. As a professional in the creative field, I acknowledge that innovative content creation is a significant aspect of the industry, and I observe a great passion among creators to produce cartoon animations that express positive and negative cultural behaviors. Also, how capital plays interesting end results in this TV cartoon series that creates significant audience growth.

The satirical nature of "Simpson Family" is particularly noteworthy, as it provides a curious production of further analysis of society's values and neglect of black humour. The show has become a cultural phenomenon through its unique approach, influencing the media industry and popular culture more broadly. Furthermore, satirical jokes draw upon deeply held cultural differences and use a narrative format to help us understand the situation being represented and the appropriate social response. This satirical framing takes knowledge of culture, religion and social traditions. Satirical jokes play a crucial role in exposing and challenging opposing perspectives. They draw upon cultural differences and use a narrative format to shape our understanding of a situation and its appropriate social response. Satire is a powerful tool for transmitting knowledge and shaping interpretation. (Feltmate, 2017)

Despite the show's success, I recognise that opinions about its impact may vary. Nevertheless, I believe that it is essential to consider how the "Simpson Family" has contributed to the evolution of the media industry, particularly in terms of its innovative use of satire and its ability to engage audiences in critical thinking about social norms. The culture industry is so adaptable to any situation to create and express feelings through the media. The French Marxist philosopher Louis Althusser sees ideology not as a straightforward structure of ideas but more to focus on material practice or action, "ideology works to reproduce the social conditions", and social, economic, and capitalist processes continue to be a loop process, no matter what does the circumstances in the social environment.

A comprehensive analysis of the cultural phenomenon that is The Simpsons. The show, which premiered on FOX in 1989, has since become a global sensation, generating over $1.4 billion in revenue for the network. The Simpsons has produced a staggering 550 episodes, earning a total of thirty-two Primetime Emmy Awards, a Peabody Award, and a feature-length film in 2007. The movie grossed over $527 million worldwide, cementing the show's status as one of the most successful animated franchises in history. Our analysis highlights the show's enduring popularity and its impact on popular culture. We conclude that The Simpsons has left an indelible mark on the entertainment industry and continues to captivate audiences around the world. (Feltmate, 2017)

In the Simpson sequence as part of the activity I remember the Factory Scene in Charlie Chaplin's Modern Times (1936). We note the evolution of visual content since the pioneering work of Brother Lumiere with the film The Factory in Lyon in 1985. This evolution has been influenced by various cultural, social, artistic, political, religious, and economic issues. Specifically, we observe that industry and capitalism have contributed to the deterioration of mental quality and the generation of autopilot cognitive stages. The process of creation bases is robust based on the knowledge of culture in general aspects. According to Raymond Williams, culture involves "intellectual, spiritual and aesthetic development." Once a fundamental comprehension of our world is established, it becomes evident that humor serves a diverse range of social functions. It can serve to reaffirm reality, thereby assuring us that our assumptions about life are stable. This, in turn, fosters group solidarity and enables humor to be used to exclude others. In other words, humor reinforces and makes explicit moral boundaries.

I can now incorporate superiority theory’s assumptions that we laugh at an inferior’s weaknesses. This theory posits that humor is used to establish and maintain social hierarchies, with the target of the joke being the inferior. The use of humor to assert dominance over others is a common feature of human social behavior, and its role in reinforcing social boundaries has been well documented.(Feltmate, 2017)

In conclusion, I argue that the capitalist process in culture and media is more vital than ever in our society. Our analysis light on the complex interplay between visual content, industry, and capitalism and highlights the need to critically examine these factors in shaping our cultural landscape. Walter Benjamin, addressed that each creation process provides the best results from the moving process where uniqueness and authenticity can be found in social art, cultural, political, and economic social issues, creating the consciousness calling this process "aura". Benjamin describes this process with a few key works "creation, ritual, tradition, magic, religion, culture, values". In a few words, get inspired to produce visual material transcending internal values.References
