    imo

    Bart Simpson (and Homer, and to a lesser extent the rest of the cast and the show itself) represented a specific rebellion against the culture of its time, which served to capture the popular imagination very quickly but in doing so rendered itself (almost immediately) dated and (ultimately) obsolete

    Bart Simpsons is pretty Tom Sawyer-y, a thing that has not been remarked on enough

    ooh?
  • Eternity is a child playing, playing checkers; the kingdom belongs to a child.
    He's a rebellious and mischevious young boy who lives on disrupting the world around him for his own ends.

    You might say he's...

    he gets high on you!

    Personally, I am an old enough cow to remember when Bart was THE pop culture personality everyone talked about. And then, a little later, people realized that Homer was actually the funny one.

    it is something how like Bart has basically been retconned out of the narrative of the show's history

    like we don't often discuss just how audacious the early '90s were
  • The moonlight is the message of love.
    "Audacious" is one way of putting it, I suppose
  • IN THIS WORLD IT'S MILK OR BE MILKED
    "Obnoxious" is another

    "Obnoxious" is another

    oh they were but there was a lot of audacity too
  • Simpsons is rebellious but ultimately grounded in humanity and optimism.  Just to remind everyone, the Simpsons' competition after the early 90s was South Park and Family Guy, so it's no wonder they lost the edgy angle (and IMO, no real loss).

    There was a strain of very '90s, smart-assed H-B alumni
