    Who knew a cartoon would become a mainstay of pop culture?

    What started out as a 30 second clip on "The Tracy Ullman Show" has turned into a billion dollar+ fun fest for it's creator, Matt Groening.

    It's amazing what production can do with T.V. Stars who never age and never get bored with their role or bitch about their contracts.

    :beer: Congratulations Simpsons!

    They've had some great guest stars, but my all time favorite died before his time. He did some great characters, you may remember him as Troy McClure.
    RIP Phil Hartman!

    I was a major Simpson's fan when the show started. My coworkers and I used to draw pictures of the characters on the white board in my office. We drew different versions of Bart: regular Bart, Indian Bart, Tawain Bart, Mexican Bart, etc. One time the director of operations dropped by my office to discuss a project. He saw the drawings on my board and asked me about it. Without hesitation, I said, "I'm not sure what that is. The cleaning people must've done that last night." (Yes, I lied. :eusa_shhh:)

    Here's a picture of my white board, circa 1991. I can't believe I still have this picture.
