Right? ;)

Form should always follow Function.

Re: Characters in movie that talks very rarely

Charles Bronson (the Tunnel King) in The Great Escape (1963) - he's one of the main characters, but had few lines compared to some of the other main characters in the ensemble cast.

Alan Arkin in The Heart is a Lonely Hunter (1968) - he's the lead character and never utters a word! ;)

But this one sequence is pretty good (although a bit glitchy). ...

Then I stand corrected, Chyp.
On one Google search I made, one result called The Simpsons the "world's" longest running TV show.
