Fake Merchandise Upsets Groening

Simpsons News — Posted 03 Mar, 2004 by Scott

The Simpsons creator Matt Groening has hit out at plagiarists trying to sell fake drawings of his famed characters, Homer and Bart.

The Emmy Award-winning producer, who dreamt up the hit TV show back in 1989, slammed the culprits branding them thieves.

Groening fumes, "There's a drawing out on the internet which claims to be by me, drawn in response to the terrorist attacks on September 11th. "It's a very wobbly drawing of Bart and Homer and the Twin Towers, and there are stains on the drawing that are supposed to be my tears - shed while hastily drawing Bart and Homer as the news events unfolded. Watch out for these fakes on eBay and other auction sites. - CBS News.
