FOX is paying “homarge” to 20 years of television’s favorite yellow family with the network’s first-ever on-air scavenger hunt. Beginning Monday, Nov. 9 and continuing through Friday, Nov. 13, fans can watch FOX each night to find Simpsons shout-outs, tributes and clues featured in primetime programming and on-air promos.

One lucky winner will receive the ultimate Simpsons prize package, including a trip for two to Los Angeles to attend a SIMPSONS table read with the Emmy Award-winning voice cast and producers, a home entertainment system, SIMPSONS DVDs and merchandise and tickets to Universal Studios Hollywood, home of The Simpsons Ride.

Viewers 13 years of age and older who spot SIMPSONS shout-outs can log on to www.fox.com/scavengerhunt each night to test their knowledge for an opportunity to unlock daily downloadable extras and to enter to win the ultimate grand prize. The deadline for submissions is 2:00 PM ET on Saturday, Nov. 14. For complete official rules, guidelines and more information, visit www.fox.com/scavengerhunt.

“Best. 20 Years. Ever.,” a year-long global celebration honoring all things THE SIMPSONS, launched in January 2009 and will culminate in January 2010, the 20th anniversary of the series’ debut.

Now the longest-running comedy in television history, THE SIMPSONS immediately struck a chord with viewers across the country as it poked fun of itself and everything in its wake. With its subversive humor and delightful wit, the series has made an indelible imprint on American pop culture, and the family members have become television icons.

THE SIMPSONS is a Gracie Films production in association with 20th Century Fox Television. James L. Brooks, Matt Groening and Al Jean are the executive producers.  Film Roman, a Starz Media company, is the animation house.
