The Simpsons On A Postage Stamp

simpsons.jpgFOX’s animated TV series The Simpsons will soon be making their way to an envelope near you. The Hollywood Reporter tells us:

The 44-cent first-class mail stamps, designed by Simpsons creator and executive producer Matt Groening, will feature Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie Simpson.

The stamps, a sneak peek for which will be unveiled April 9, also will help celebrate the longest-running primetime comedy’s 20th anniversary this year.

The Postal Service receives about 50,000 stamp suggestions per year, but only about 20 ideas make the cut, the companies said.

“This has been a dream for Fox and ‘The Simpsons’ creative teams for some time, and we’ve finally made the cut!” said Elie Dekel, executive vp licensing and merchandising at News Corp.’s 20th Century Fox licensing and merchandising unit.
