"The Tracey Ullman Show" was a half hour music/comedy/variety show on FOX starri ng Tracey Ullman herself.

For the most part, the series served as a platform to showcase Ullman's ability to do characters and every show featured various comed y and musical skits. It also occasionally featured various amusing animated shor ts. One series of shorts stood out and soon became the exclusive animated series on the show. That series was called "The Simpsons." The characters in the short s were voiced by the show's cast members (Dan Castellaneta, Julie Kavner, Yeardl ey Smith, and Nancy Cartwright) and eventually every episode of Ullman's program would have three Simpsons shorts linked by a common plot such as Bart going to get a haircut. The art slowly changed as well, as the Simpsons seen in the first shorts look like only rough sketches of what the characters eventually became. When "The Tracey Ullman Show" finished a four season run in 1990, "The Simpsons" was reborn as a full-length show and became the driving force behind FOX's grow th into a major network.
