How many recurring characters from 'The Simpsons' can you name in 10 minutes?

We might not all still watch The Simpsons, but there was a time when we tuned in every single day.

Classic episodes at 6pm, followed by The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Did life get any better than that?

Sadly, for many fans, there is a sense that the show has been bad for longer than it was good. The cut-off point for a good show becoming bad came, depending on who you ask, during season nine, 10 or 11.

With that in mind, we want to see how many characters you can name who appeared multiple times during the first 10 seasons of the show, a period which encompasses its golden era.

We’re leaving out unnamed characters, and one-episode characters who later show up in crowd scenes or as easter eggs, but you’ve still got a lot to come up with in 10 minutes.

And there are a couple of surprise omissions, too. Duffman only appeared once in the first 10 seasons, as did Johnny Tightlips – we know, we were surprised as well.
