The Simpsons to appear on postage stamps

April 2nd, 2009

America's most dysfunctional family are to be honoured with their own stamps, the US Postal Service has announced.

The Simpsons characters Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie will all feature on the five 44 cent stamps.

Artwork for the images was done by the cartoon's creator Matt Groening and will be available for preview from 9 April on the post office website.

The stamps will help celebrate the US's longest-running prime-time comedy's 20th anniversary this year.
