With these stamps, the U.S. Postal Service recognizes The Simpsons, the longest-running comedy in the history of American prime-time television, entering its 20th year as a regularly scheduled half-hour series in 2009.
The USPS art director for this project, Derry Noyes, was pleased to use original artwork by Matt Groening, the cartoonist who created the Simpson characters and named them after his own family: parents Marge and Homer, sisters Lisa and Maggie (the baby who conveys emotion by sucking on her pacifier), and his alter ego, Bart.
