D'oh! Simpsons Immortalized On Stamps

The U.S. Postal Service Thursday released a set of designs for five new stamps, showcasing each member of The Simpsons family, that go on sale next month.

Each family member — Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie — has their own 44-cent first-class stamp, and the post office is conducting a poll on their website to see who is most beloved of the bunch.

“This is the biggest and most adhesive honor The Simpsons has ever received,” the show’s creator and executive producer Matt Groening said.

Postal official David Failor said the promotional tie-in with the show should regenerate interest in a waning hobby.

“Issuing The Simpsons stamps, which includes known philatelist Bart Simpson, will serve as a great opportunity to interest youngsters in stamp collecting,” he said.

The stamps will be made available to the public starting May 7.
