"The Simpsons" Co-Creator Sam Simon Dead at 59

Posted: March 10th, 2015 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"The Simpsons" Co-Creator Sam Simon Dead at 59Submit Comment
Sam Simon, a producer and writer who co-created "The Simpsons" along with Matt Groening and James L Brooks, has died after along battle with colon cancer. He was 59 years old.

Early in his career, Simon served as an executive producer on the "Taxi" sitcom. At the age of only 23. He also wrote and produced such comedies as "Cheers" and "The Drew Carey Show." More recently, he worked as a consultant on Charlie Sheen's "Anger Management" sitcom.

But Simon will always be known for creating "The Simpsons." He worked with Groening and Brooks on "The Tracey Ulman Show," on which The Simpsons got their start and later getting their own series in 1989. "The Simpsons" has since become the longest-running primetime series in television history.

Simon eventually left the show in 1993 to become a philanthropist, who gave away his fortune to charities as PETA, Save the Children and his own Sam Simon Foundation, which is a dog rescue organization.

"He was a genius and a great humanitarian in ways public and private," said "The Simpsons" executive producer Al Jean. "I personally owe him more than can be repaid, but I will do my best to help every animal I can in his memory."

Really, I had no f*cking clue who this guy was until the news of his death broke. And then I was like, who cares? Really.

Now Matt Groening's death, on the other hand, is newsworthy.

""The Simpsons" has since become the longest-running primetime series in television history."



Unfortunately, and in spite of everything people have done to try to kill it, much like cancer itself.

What Alex didn't say is that his fortune was worth $100 million!

That happens very rarely these days.

Nah my guess Mink is the douche who runs this site. And by him being a prick to everyone he generates traffic for site.

I am not gonna lie....Mink being one of the most foul mouthed wretched sc*mmiest people i have ever come across is a big allure to this site.My hate for him runs very very deep.

The motto...

MINK IS A CHILD MOLESTER

"Minkowski" is the turd in the punchbowl, the fly in the soup, the pube in the beer.
