Waddingtons: The Simpsons Playing Cards by Winning Moves

This is another deck produced by Winning Moves UK Ltd. under the trademark Waddingtons in 2011. The deck is dedicated to the famous American adult animated sitcom The Simpsons.


The_Simpsons_Family_PictureThe Simpsons was created by Matt Groening for the Fox Broadcasting Company. The series is a satirical parody of a middle class American lifestyle epitomized by its family of the same name, which consists of Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie. The show is set in the fictional town of Springfield and parodies American culture, society, television and many aspects of the human condition.

The debut of this sitcom was on December 17, 1989. The Simpsons is the longest-running American sitcom. The show has broadcast 528 episodes and the twenty-fourth season ended on May 19, 2013. It has won dozens of awards since it debuted as a series (27 Primetime Emmy Awards, 30 Annie Awards and a Peabody Award). This family was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame as well as Matt Groening himself.

It is funny but Homer’s exclamatory catchphrase “D’oh!” as a spoken word is a sound trademark of 20th Century Fox and it was even included in the Oxford English Dictionary in 2001.

The deck: 52 playing cards (all different) + 2 different Jokers + 2 Ad cards. Bridge size. The deck is printed on casino cardboard with smooth finish.
