Exactly. That would be like trying to figure out how every single ARCHIE comic fits into Archie's high school years.
(Seriously, even if Archie was dating Betty and/or Veronica every single night of the week for three years, there's no way he could have that many dating misadventures before graduating!)
I always assumed that stories like Archie and the Simpsons existed in a weird universe where time repeated itself endlessly after the Earth passed through a weird temporal anomaly. Bart Simpson attended 4th Grade, had summer, attended 4th Grade, had summer, etc. And yet he remembers every year he's lived.
