The Simpsons producers promised a major death to kick off Season 26 of this iconic animated sitcom and they delivered on Sunday night, as (SPOILER ALERT!) we said farewell to Krusty's father, Rabbi Hyman Krustofski.

Some would say they delivered, that is.

Others on Twitter, such as @joshgnosis, would say "much like the last few seasons," this revelation was "promising but ultimately disappointing."

You can watch The Simpsons online (click Play on the video above) and you can review The Simpsons quotes from the installment to formulate your own thoughts on the controversial premiere, but here's a look at what many other viewers are saying about it.

The Simpsons lived up to its promise tonight.

After vowing all summer long to kill off a key character, the animated smash let go of Krusty's father, Rabbi Hyman Krustofsky, on The Simpsons Season 26 Episode 1.

Voiced by the great Jackie Mason), the holy man had been a part of the show's universe since reuniting with his estranged, red-nosed son in 1991.

Why did producer Al Jean go there?

Homer Simpson has taken from his 12-day, round-the-clock marathon on FXX to help raise awareness for an important cause.

Indeed, The Simpsons patriarch is the latest big name to accept the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, as he's featured in the following video dumping a cup of cold water on his head.

But that's not all, with Bart making sure his dad gets hit by a number of other falling objects, all in the name of bringing attention to the fatal disease of ALS.

Watch now and see Homer challenge Flanders, Lenny, Flanders (yes, again) and, finally, Donald Trump.

Beginning today, FXX will air all 552 (!) episodes of The Simpsons in chronological order. 

It'll be the longest such marathon in TV history, and while Simpsons fans are an obsessive lot, we doubt many will be up to the task of watching the entire 12-day stretch. (Though we wouldn't be surprised if some careers and marriages are sacrificed in the attempt.)

Pinning down the best episodes from the iconic series' 25-season run is a nigh impossible task, but here's a list of 17 indispensable installments. Use it as a guide, set your DVR, and hopefully maintain your employment:

Bart gets Hit By a Car (Season 2)
One of the first episodes to delve into the depths of C. Montgomery Burns' true evil. Better yet, it features the first appearances of Springfield sleazeballs Dr. Nick Riviera and attorney Lionel Hutz (voiced by the late Phil Hartman).

Of course, no show can remain consistently brilliant for two-and-a-half decades, so naturally some days will require more of your time than others.

The marathon began at 10 this morning with the pilot/Christmas special "Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire," and while that episode is rife with sentimental appeal for those of us old enough to remember its debut, the general consensus among fans is that Groening and company didn't really hit their stride until season 3.

The show's true glory days may have begun with the Conan O'Brien-penned "Marge Vs. the Monorail," but like all things Simpsons, that's a matter of tense debate amongst fans.

You might not realize it, but Homer and Marge Simpson can really turn the sexy on when the cameras go off ... at least according to one artist's imagination.

AleXsandro Palombo put together a series of provocative images of the popular animated couple, riffing off the erotic photography of Helmut Newton.

Who knows how you think up this kind of thing ... but he did.

Marge Simpson Gets Sexy

A seductive, gender-bending Homer steers clear of the donuts and blue jeans in the pics, opting instead for a suave suit and the occasional drag number.

Marge Simpson, meanwhile ditches her favorite green tube dress for a slinkier black number, sometimes preferring to wear little or nothing at all.

The Homer and Marge Simpson nude images are a direct homage to Helmut Newton, a black-and-white photographer known for his erotic elegance.

We're not sure if you'll be turned on, scarred for life or somewhere in between, but this is not something you'll see if you watch The Simpsons online.

Do you even want to see it? That's a tough question, we know. Ponder it now before you proceed and can't erase the naked imagery from your memory.

The Simpsons Season 25 Episode 7 went back to a familiar well this week, as Bart tried to clean up his act and shape up. Been there, done that, right?

Yes, but this time his efforts took place aboard a submarine at least.

Similarly, Krusty experienced financial problems once again, though this time he tried to rectify the situation by licensing his series to foreign markets.

This led to the show skewering of other actual shows that did so, which was vintage Simpsons, and shows you why the show has lasted 25 seasons.

A show known more for laughs than violence is set to take out one of its own.

Executive Producer Al Jean says The Simpsons will celebrate its 25th season at some point in the near future by killing off a long-time character. Who might it be?

"I'll give you a clue that the actor playing the character won an Emmy for playing that character, but I won't say who it is," Jean told reporters during a recent conference call.

Hmmm… that does actually narrow down the list by quite a lot.
