The Simpsons has been running since 1989, for 29 seasons, and the characters haven't aged a single day. Aside from a few episodes where they travel in time and we see the kids as teenagers and adults.
That's led some fans to ask why Maggie is still a baby with a pacifier when she should probably be in college by now.
Their answer? A wizard did it.
But that seemed to lead to even more questions.
Also, every other single character. They've all stayed the same. Homer should look like grandpa right now.— Jack Sheets (@JackSheets8) December 11, 2017
And some theories...
The Magic: Springfield/Simpson's Earth years pass slower than our universe's years. Maggie isn't the only one in the show who hasn't aged.— ☭🚩BLVCK 👨🏿🚀🚀COSMONAUT🏴Ⓐ (@BLVCKcosmonaut) December 11, 2017
The truth is Homer never left the wormhole. The clue is when he lamented that he should’ve read that book by the wheelchair guy.— BanTheBBC (@BanTheBBC) December 11, 2017
Has anyone attempted to count up every day that has taken place in the 629 episodes? If a lot of the episodes only lasted less than 1 day, it might only be a year old....— Stroke Bet (@BetStroke) December 11, 2017
