    Given the problems they have at the USPS, I would like to see Gil on one of those.

      You made me look at the stamps in my desk that I bought about a year ago. They don’t have a number value. They say “first-class forever.”

    A tasteful memorial to a fantastic TV show that died about 10 long years ago.

    re #4, yeah, the US government obtained the rights to the Simpsons characters, both for the stamps themselves and for related marketing the USPS may do around the stamps. I don’t know, but I would be very surprised if the goverment paid for the rights, given what huge great publicity it is for the Simpsons.

    Stamps go to 44 cents in May.

    I have plenty of 41 cent and “forever” stamps, but I’ll buy a set of Simpsons stamps for sending Christmas cards and the like.

    Love the slightly old school look (season 2 or so) of the characters!

    Congratulations Mr. Silverman, you have now officially lived down your role in animating “Turbo Teen” back in 1984.

    Is Homer being choked?

    Keeping in mind the earlier article about Dune, did the USPS paid licensing fees to use this IP? Are they going to suddenly get a C&D from Fox?

    Fantastic!

    Anyone willing to mail a letter to me in Canada once these are released? ;)

    And to think Simpsons t-shirts were banned from my high school… a big Nelson “Ha, ha!” to that.
