Today, we are focusing on the cast of The Simpson’s and their willingness to sign autographs. There are six ongoing members of the cast.
Dan Castellaneta (Homer Simpson, Grampa Simpson, Barney Gumble, Krusty the Clown, Groundskeeper Willie, and others) – Mr. Castellaneta is one of the nicest, most humble celebrities I have ever come across. He is a great signer and if, I have ever seen him turn down an autograph request, I don’t remember it.
Julie Kavner (Marge Simpson, Patty Bouvier, and Selma Bouvier) I have only encountered her twice and both times, she was very difficult. I am told by other autograph collectors they have had similar results with her. She also loves to talk about her characters and interact with her fans.
Nancy Cartwright (Bart Simpson, Nelson Muntz, Ralph Wiggum, Todd Flanders, and others) – She is similar to Dan Castellaneta in that she is simply amazing. She always, I mean always takes time for her fans. I have never seen her turn down an autograph request.
Hank Azaria (Apu Nahasapeemapetilon, Moe Szyslak, Chief Wiggum, Comic Book Guy, Lou, and others) – He used to be a great signer but, as he has become more famous. not so much. He still seems to be basically a nice guy, just not a great signer.
Harry Shearer (Mr. Burns, Ned Flanders, Principal Skinner, Waylon Smithers, Kent Brockman, and others) – See Hank Azaria. Just likie Mr. Azaria, he used to be much better but with success, not a very willing signer.
Yeardley Smith (Lisa Simpson) – Ms. Smith has never been a great signer and unfortunately, that hasn’t change. I have only seen her once in person and she turned me and another collector down. I am told from other collectors she is always pretty much the same.
As always, I hope you enjoyed today’s blog. Check out my autograph web store at www.autographedfirstdaycovers.com.
