"I don't want anyone to think I am predicting the demise of the Simpsons," he said.

"As long as there are things to make fun of we will be around."

He added: "I just said that given the fact the we just finished our 300th episode, I would guess we are closer to the end of our life than the beginning."

Upset in Rio

The Simpsons on holiday
The programme is seen by 60 million people worldwide.

It managed to cause upset recently when it showed the Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro as teeming with rats, monkeys and street crime.

Tourist officials in Rio were outraged and the show's producer had to apologise.
