“D’oh!” The Simpsons are stamping around the Postal Museum

The 1990s introduced us to rollerblading, grunge music, slap bracelets and a yellow animated family from Springfield that took America by storm. Some fads come and go, but 20 years later “The Simpsons” remains timeless.
Now the longest-running comedy in television history, “The Simpsons” immediately struck a chord with viewers and has made an indelible imprint on American pop culture and has become one of television’s most iconic families. To highlight the 20th anniversary of the show, Fox Studios and the United States Postal Service recently teamed up to create individual postage stamps for each Simpson family member.

In celebration of this collaboration, the National Postal Museum created a commemorative first day cover with one of the Simpson’s stamps canceled on the first day of issue. To receive a free commemorative envelope, click here.
