Simpsons Alumni Update: Richard Appel

Richard Appel came in at the tail end of the best of The Simpsons and was around for the last few good years.  He then went on to higher places at FOX and became a writer/producer for various other animated programs.  He’s going to continue doing that for at least three more yearsThe Hollywood Reporter describes the deal as a “rich seven-figure pact”.  Good for him.  Right now he’s working on Family Guy Spinoff #2.  Uh, less good for him, but whatever.  It’s always nice to see people who worked on the show doing well.

    Oh, well. Family Guy, Family Guy Spinoff #1, and Family Guy Spinoff #2 all show that you can pretty much throw crap at the wall and get paid for it.

Useful Legal Tidbit

Even though it’s obvious to anyone with a functional frontal lobe and a shred of morality, we feel the need to include this disclaimer. This website (which openly advocates for the cancellation of a beloved television series) is in no way, shape or form affiliated with the FOX Network, the News Corporation, subsidiaries thereof, or any of Rupert Murdoch’s wives or children. “The Simpsons” is (unfortunately) the intellectual property of FOX. We and our crack team of one (1) lawyer believe that everything on this site falls under the definition of Fair Use and is protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. No revenue is generated from this endeavor; we’re here because we love “The Simpsons”. And besides, you can’t like, own a potato, man, it’s one of Mother Earth’s creatures.
