The Simpsons stamps launched in US

200x190.jpgPostal bosses in the US have given 'The Simpsons' the stamp of approval, by putting the family on their own stamps.

To mark the popular TV show reaching its 20th series, Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie Simpson will each appear on their own 44 cent stamp.

It is the first time a US stamp set has been devoted to a television series while still in production and a whopping ONE BILLION Simpsons stamps will be printed.

A spokesperson for the U.S. Postal Service said they hoped the stamps could star youngsters stamp collecting ... well I suppose using them is out of the question, do most youngsters even know you can send bits of paper around the country?
"It’s an incredible honor to be on a U.S. postage stamp," said The Simpsons creator Matt Groening. "I honestly can’t believe it. I thought the Pillsbury Doughboy would come before us."

"We are emotionally moved by the Postal Service selecting us rather than making the lazy choice of someone who has benefited society," added James L. Brooks, executive producer of the show.
