— Matt Groening's unlock message

Matt Groening (Pronounced GRAY-ning) is a character released on November 5, 2014 during the Simpsorama Promotional. He is unlocked upon completion of the Writers Building.

About[edit | edit source]

Matt Groening is the creator of the television shows Futurama, Disenchantment, and the comic strip Life in Hell.

Matt seems to be very acclaimed, since when people saw him at a comic convention, everyone went for him for an autograph. Matt told them they can also take a bit of his 'stache, as they say it's good luck. However, when Homer saw a drawing of Bongo the Rabbit by Matt Groening (from his comic Life in Hell) he said Matt was a bad artist. He was once hired to draw a caricature of Freddy Quimby in a trial. When Kent Brockman presented a list of people who were gay, Groening was on the list. He is also in Comic Book Guy's banned list in the Android's Dungeon & Baseball Card Shop, along with Sideshow Bob, Nelson, Bart and Milhouse. When some "Everyman" comic books were being loaded in a truck, Matt Groening stole all of them and threw them into his truck.
