On Jan. 10, 2010 FOX celebrated 20 years of everyone's favorite yellow family with its 450th episode, followed by "The Simpsons 20th Anniversary Special: In 3-D! On Ice!"
That's a lot of episodes, but nothing compares to the first ... of each season, that is.
Take a look back at the way "The Simpsons" has kicked off each year since the beginning.
Note: FOX doesn't count the Treehouse of Horror episodes as the show's season premieres (even when its aired first) so we aren't either.
