Hi folks and welcome to another Simpsons Sunday post. Today I would like to say thank you to Harry Shearer for all the years of laughter he gave us, while voicing his characters on The Simpsons. Of course we all know he vvoiced: Mr. Burns, Mr. Smithers, dr. Julius Hibbert, Reverend Timothy Lovejoy, Dr. Marvin Monroe, Kent Brockman, Lenny Leonard, Principal Seymour Skinner, Ned Flanders and many other minor characters.
He was asked to be a part of the show by Sam Simon because Matt Groening was a fan of his radio show. He was reluctant at first but then decided to do it. We know how that worked out!
Last week, Harry has decided to leave the show and I won’t get into it here because I don’t know all the details of the departure. However, I would like to say a very big thank you to him for making me and millions of us around the world laugh, along with the other cast members. He will surely be missed as a destinktive voice for his characters that probably nobody can replicate.
Well, that’s about it for today, except that I should also say a big thank you to David Letterman for his own way of making millions laugh, on his TV shows. I think the most and during memory of his show will be The Top 10 list. It has been repeated on morning radio the morning after each previous nights episode and has had many guests doing it, including Dan Castellaneta in character as Homer Simpson. Of course The Simpsons used him in a couch gag at the beginning of one of the episodes too.
Thanks Dave for all the haha’s over the years. If it is true that you are a ham radio operator now, I hope to work you one day.
That’s it for today. in the mean time, I recommend checking out Chris Ladesma’s blog. He is the Music Editor for The Simpsons and has been since day 1.
I also recommend checking out Yeardley Smith’s blog at http://gobbingoff.tumblr.com
I should also mention Marchez Vous, which is her women’s shoe designer company, which she started earlier in the decade. You can check out their website at
For some strange reason everyone I know hasn’t heard of them yet. Hopefully I can change that.

One final thing to mention is that you can follow Simpsons Executive Producer Al Jean on Twitter and his Twitter handle is @AlJean.
