Following a long and inspiring battle against colorectal cancer, Sam Simon died at the age of 59 on Sunday.

An accomplished director and producer, Simon was best known for co-creating The Simpsons... and then later in life for choosing to give away his fortune once he was diagnosed with his fatal disease.

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.

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.)
