I don't know if you mean the '89 Xmas debut or the '87 Ullman debut, but I was there right in '87. After the numerous tapings, watching it in syndication, about 2005 / Season 16 is when I had enough. They kept showing more newer episodes in sydication that were lousy (The Simpsons go to...) but that season, the worse Halloween special ever & Bart having a heart attack was the breaking point to where I said "enough. Never again". The show had evolved into a mere shadow of itself, it wasn't funny, they were just stories.
