Meet The Real Life Simpsons In A Home Movie Starring Matt Groening

(Video Link)

Matt Groening is the creator behind one of the longest lasting and most lucrative animated series ever, The Simpsons, and his inspiration for Springfield and the characters who live there was a closely guarded secret, until it all came out a few years back.

Now everyone knows that Matt’s dad was named Homer, his mother was named Margaret and his sisters were named Lisa and Maggie, but what you probably don’t know is Matt’s dad was a cartoonist and amateur filmmaker as well, and papa Homer shot this darling video starring a young Matt and his sisters called The Story back in 1969.

It’s more like a well made home movie than a polished short film, but it’s great to see some of the inspiration behind Matt Groening’s future endeavors, and those young Groening kids are so darn cute!
