The Simpsons - longest running series?

Is it really the longest running animated series in the world? It certainly is the longest in the U.S., but what about other countries?

Crayon Shin-Chan is said to be the Japanese equivalent, but its episodes are 15 minutes, so those only count for half.

The best measure would be to actually add up the total number of minutes of actual TV show.

What do people in other (non-English speaking) countries think of The Simpsons? How much does translation change it in translated versions that you're aware of? How popular is it elsewhere?
