The Simpsons wasn't the longest running cartoon family in 1997 nor is it today.Japan's Sazae-san was, is & will remain for a while the longest running animated TV show in history, obviously this answers the question of the longest running cartoon family as well.It debuted in 1969 and produces new episodes today-However if you mean strictly American television, the closest answer is The Flintstones although it only ran for 6 seasons. The Simpsons passed The Flintstones' run in 1995 not 1997.

It didn't and won't break that record because it isn't the longest running animated TV program.Japan's Sazae-San has been on the air since 1969 and still produces episodes today.However, the longest running prime time [e.g. American] animated program before The Simpsons was The Flintstones which ran for six seasons [1960-1966], so when The Simpsons' 140th episode aired Team Homer, that was when the broke The Flintstones record.
