Why ‘The Simpsons’ Matters To Disney+

Disney has been heavily marketing its new service and working hard to make potential subscribers aware that Disney+ is the home of Iron Man and Luke Skywalker. The fact that Disney+ is also the exclusive home of 30 seasons of The Simpsons has flown a bit under the radar.
