Mona Simpson "supposedly" never gets to say goodbye to Homer when she leaves him. But for some reason, a few episodes later in the series seem to contradict this fact.

Homer's mother Mona was forced to abandon him when she went on the run from the law (although, as per "Mother Simpson", she attempted to send him a care package every week). Homer's half-brother Herb was also abandoned by his biological parents, as was Frank Grimes of "Homer's Enemy".

Plenty of abusive parent characters in the show, wherever it be mentioned as a joke or major part of an episode (I.E. Agnes Skinner and Nelson’s parents). Other parent characters can be seen as abusive in certain episodes as well, though many of them aren’t meant to be seen as genuinely awful guardians. This second point especially applies to Homer, who in several jokes or even full episodes, is shown to be a terrible father. Though Homer being an awful father is shown most prevalent in the middle seasons of the show and Homer is more often than not presented as a genuinely good father (or at least trying to redeem an awful action) in all eras of the show but especially the modern era. (specifically in late 20s seasons and onwards)

In "The Canine Mutiny" we hear that Bart once attempted to cover up the death of Milhouse's goldfish by telling him the fish never existed. It didn't work - Milhouse is confident that his owning a goldfish bowl is proof that he also had a fish.

The family cat is named Snowball II because the previous Snowball died.
In "I (Annoyed Grunt) Bot", Snowball II dies, as do two other cats, but the fifth cat gets renamed Snowball II and looks just like the original one, so you can avoid the episode and pretend it never existed.

Many of Bart’s love interests are either implied or stated to be much older than him. Annika Van Houten is implied to be much older than Bart (one of the Simpson wikis says she’s 14 which would make her 4 years older than Bart but I don’t know if it’s canon.) Shauna Chalmers is stated to be a teenager which implies she’s 13 or older. Mary Spuckler is stated to be 13. Darcy is stated to be 15 years old (tho she doesn’t know Bart is only 10 for most of the episode.)

The episodes “Bart After Dark” is entirely about Bart occupying time with his broken leg. All you see is a cast, and what you do see of it breaking is very tame. The only thing I could see making anyone uncomfortable is when he gets his leg stuck in a bucket. Otherwise, I think you’re fine.

Specifically, some of the reoccurring side characters die permanently, either due to the actors dying, voice actor dispute or the plot of the episode. There are also a lot of major character deaths in the Treehouse of Horrors but those aren’t canon.

There are a couple of scenes where Homer is showering or bathing. The two I can remember off the top of my head are 1) Bart learns he can make Homer sing a song by playing with the bathroom taps while he's in the shower, and 2) Bart whomps Homer with a chair while he's in the bath.

In Season 20, Episode 20 Homer wants to lose weight, so he asks Apu if there's anything that could make him throw up. Apu pours chunky buttermilk from 1961 into a cup for Homer to drink. He tells him not to chew the chunks, but Homer chews them anyways and Apu counts down from three. It shows the store from outside and you see the vomit on the window. Also, Season 16, E 15 at 4:12. You don't see the action, you just see the result on the ground. It's all played for laughs because it takes place in the future, but if you wanna be safe, just skip to 4:22. Also in season 13, episode 21 at 3:21. It's a caterpillar, so it might not trigger you, but the noises were pretty gross to be honest. Just skip ahead to 3:25. Season 18, Episode 8 at 14:45; its baby vomit so it's not too bad, and it's in black and white. Just skip to 14:55. S12 Ep16. It’s not bad, just weird(it’s on the ground while willie’s cleaning it. S32 Ep22 when Moe is talking abt the side effects of anti-booze. It’s just audio.

Flashbacks show the kids being born in the hospital. In "Large Marge", Marge gets surgery and is shown at hospital. In "Homer Simpson in: 'Kidney Trouble'", Homer, Grandpa, and Ned are shown at the hospital. Comic Book Guy goes to the hospital in "Worst Episode Ever". "'Round Springfield" takes place mostly in the hospital.

there are mentions, though I’ve never seen a character actually harm themselves. in ‘King Leer’, Moe’s father gives him one of the family mattress stores. Moe, with tears in his eyes, states ‘this is a dream I had buried so deep, no amount of self-harm could ever carve it out’.

A running gag is Moe (unsuccessfully) attempting suicide. One character states that he tries to take his life each Christmas. This statement is played for comedy.

Sort of but it’s kind of weird as said therapy involves spanking. Although admittedly the child in question is not autistic (and also it’s clearly a jab at this kind of thing), it’s treatment for anger management issues but still abusive therapy either way

In "Sleeping with the Enemy", Lisa's anorexia stems from her thinking she's fat and/or has a big butt.

Moe Szylack attempts suicide and practices self-harm often and he has said it one or twice. Has been mentioned by other characters, also.

Flashbacks show the births of all three Simpson kids, which might be scary if you're afraid of the birth process itself; however, if you're just concerned about inappropriate content, everyone's shame is covered.

krusty the clown is jewish and his identity is often the butt end of the joke. there is also a scene where he realizes he never had a bar mitzvah and responds by saying "i thought i was a self hating jew but it turns out im just a plain old antisemite", a german actor who is walking by stops and says to krusty "we have so much to talk about."

The ending of "Grade School Confidential" hinges on the idea that there is inherent indignity in being a virgin well into adulthood. Skinner is able to dispel a scandal by admitting to being a 44-year-old virgin - a claim the townspeople consider so embarrassing they don't believe anybody would make it falsely.

Usually, the nude scenes aren't shown unless it's a butt. Bart's private is only briefly shown in the movie.

It's a bit of a mixed bag. In the series premiere, Homer is exposed as a mall Santa trying to get extra money for Christmas. In other episodes, Santa is seen as a real character.

In the updated opening sequence used from the Season 20 episode Take My Life, Please" onwards, Homer Simpson is hit by the family car as Marge is pulling it into the garage, although the scene is very cartoonish and he is not hurt in any way.

The first segment has no real blood, but a digital character bleeds some sort of digital fluid (it looks like blood, but green and covered in 0’s and 1’s). The middle segment is full of blood and guts. The last segment is completely bloodless.

One couch gag involves Marge and Maggie falling into a lake and drowning. They survive, though, because couch gags are not canon.
