Matt Groening was born on the 15th of February of 1954 in Portland, Oregon
Matt Groening is the creator of the comic strip Life in Hell and the TV series Futurama and… yes, of course, he is the brilliant and magnificent creator of The Simpsons, my favorite television series. In 1985, James L. Brooks contacted Groening with the proposition of working in animation for the Fox variety show The Tracey Ullman Show and that’s the beginning of The Simpsons.
Groening has won 12 Primetime Emmy Awards, ten for The Simpsons and two for Futurama.
Well, Mr. Groening, thanks for The Simpsons and thanks for the laughs. Happy birthday, Mr. Groening.
