Description

The Simpsons is one of the most entrepreneurial shows on television. Throughout its more than 500 episodes, the characters engage in, and interact with, dozens of small business ventures.

Their hometown of Springfield is Anytown USA, where the citizens participate enthusiastically in the local economy — including establishments like Krusty Burger, Lard Lad Donuts, King Toot’s Music Store, Luigi’s, the Gilded Truffle, Red Blazer Realty, The Android’s Dungeon, the Kwik-E-Mart, and of course Moe’s Tavern.

Homer works for the Nuclear Power Plant, but he’s one of TV’s most prolific side hustlers. He’s always got some new business idea or money-making scheme going on. He’s been a door-to-door sugar salesman, a baseball mascot, a food critic, a cartoon voice actor, a night manager at the Kwik-E-Mart convenience store, a grease re-seller, and even an astronaut.
