D’oh! – The statistics behind Homer Simpsons famous catchphrase

by Nicky Johnson

What started out as a solitary script direction written down as “annoyed grunt” has transformed into a catchphrase which is now synonymous with just one character.

Yes, I’m talking about D’oh. It’s Homer Simpson’s trademark outburst and is one of the most popular sitcom phrases in history! With the show now in its 29th series, this three letter expression has had plenty of time to burrow itself deep into the public consciousness, but how many times has it been uttered on the show during its run time?

Luckily the team over at Toner Giant had the idea (and the patience) to skim through every single one of the first 28 seasons of Simpsons scripts and record just how many times Homer has expressed himself using the most famous annoyed grunt of them all.

The answer? Well you’ll have to take a look at the infographic below to find out, but needless to say it’s a lot!
