Charlie Rose interview

30 Jul, 2007

Groening and Brooks are interviewed by Rose. They talk about the origin of The Simpsons characters, their initial design, and how important it was to get a prime-time animated sitcom on the air. Brooks:

The audience would sit there for twenty minutes of entertainment. Sometimes three hours, the hostility was extraordinary. We finally tied all of The Simpsons pieces together and that invariably got the best laughs.
