The Simpsons creator Matt Groening has allayed fears the upcoming 350th episode will mark the beginning of the end for the long-running show - by insisting he's still dreaming up new ideas for future series.

Writers on the animated comedy are already working on scripts for the 17th series - a TV sitcom record - quashing reports the escapades of HOMER and his disaster-prone family are destined for the archives.

And Groening has promised to continue making The Simpsons until they run out of ways to excite the show's loyal fans.

He says, "That's what you're looking for in television - surprise. I think they're as sharp and surprising as anything we've done since the beginning of the show.

"I don't see any end in sight. I want to get to 366 (shows) so we have one for every day of the year, including leap years."

The 350th Simpsons show will be screened in America on Sunday (01MAY05).
