Personal Quote:

Cartooning is for people who can't quite draw and can't quite write. You combine the two half-talents and come up with a career. See more »

Trivia:

Was once subjected to a strip-search by airport security who considered him a suspicious character. As he was led away, a little boy said, "Ha, ha!" like Nelson on The Simpsons. Groening found the boy's mockery the most irritating thing about the incident. See more »
