Can you believe The Simpson's have been on for more than 500 episodes? That is insane. No other scripted show has been on television that long. The Simpson's debut was in 1989. In 2000 the Simpson family received their star on the walk of fame.
Matt Groening was joined today by by Simpson regulars, Yeardley Smith, Hank Azaria & Nancy Cartwright.
My favorite thing Matt has ever done is "Life Is Hell" cartoon that ran in the LA Reader & LA Weekly. It started in 1977 as a self-published comic book.
