Matt Groening on the Simpsons Movie and return of Futurama.
Matt Groening did this interview recently in which he’s talking about the comedy world of today. South Park, Family Guy, Comedy Central, Conan. But to me Matt Groening is like James Dean, forever frozen in time at his peak. No matter how bad the Simpsons gets, Matt will always be eternally stuck in the early 90s for me. Thus I find the concept of Matt Groening even acknowledging the existence of anything contemporary disturbing. It’s like if Joe Maggio had actually appeared on Seinfeld that one time. Am I alone in feeling this way? Should Matt Groening hover just out of our reach like a gauzy specter from a bygone age?
