BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Can’t get enough of “The Simpsons?” A new package from FXX might have you rethink that position.

The cable channel will begin showing the full 25-year run of the animated series.

A Web site and app called “Simpsons World” will give fans on-demand access to all 500-plus episodes of the comedy — and let users search through the life stories of the various characters.

Longtime “Simpsons” executive producer Al Jean says he doesn’t want to make promises he can’t keep — but jokes the site will also “provide you with affordable health care.”
