I used to watch that when I was small, when we just got cable tv. Probably over 15 years ago. It was on Sky Channel, early in the morning, and since I didn't know English back then, I didn't really understand much of it, but I liked it anyway :-)
Nowadays, I think Futurama is the absolute best cartoon out there. The Simpsons have grown stale, and have started repeating themselves. Alas, nowadays I require cable internet to watch Futurama, but so be it.

Unfortunately, the Simpsons started getting stale when Homer went from being a mean (albeit hilarious) character to a predictably dumb one. I always wondered why Groening let the show take more of a mainstream feel, rather than letting its "raw" quality envelop the show.
If you get the chance, just listen to the difference in Homer and Marge's voice-overs from the first season to the more recent (last 5 years) episodes. You'll never believe they came from the same voice actors.
