There are fans of “The Simpsons” and then there are “Simpsons” superfans. These are the fans who can quote every episode, the ins and outs of the characters, and can defend “The Simpsons Movie” to less-eager fans. If you qualify as a superfan, then perhaps you might be able to help “The Simpsons” complete a huge goal–breaking the Guinness World Record.
In celebration of their 500th episode, FOX is having “The Simpsons” Ultimate Fan Marathon Challenge Kick-Off Wednesday, Feb. 8. The event will take place at Hollywood and Highland Complex Center in Los Angeles. According to the release, fans will watch up to “500 continuous episodes” of the long-running show in order to break the current Guinness World Record of the longest continuous television viewing, which currently stands at 86 hours, 6 minutes and 41 seconds.
Members of “The Simpsons” will be at the event to kick off the festivities, and fans and spectators will be able to watch the marathon and take part in “The Simpsons” fanfare area, which will have interactive elements and animation cells from the show.
