There is a book about him called "Matt Groening". I haven't read it so I'm not sure how informative it is (it is designed for ages 9-12). Anywho, you can find it here:
His email address is not publicly available. If it were, he would need to hire a full-time employee to screen his messages.
To request your nude photo of Marge Simpson and/or Comic Book Guy, you can write to him at:

he has created on of the longest running cartoon shows in history. The Simpsons have been on since 1989 and there doesn't seem to be going off the air any time soon. His creation somehow symbolizes the average American family. You have homer who is the lazy underpaid father that is constantly disappointing his kids. Then there is Marge the over protective mother. And then Lisa, the genius f the family or the little voice in our head that tells us what is wrong. Then Bart is the adventurer in all of us. And Maggie, well Maggie is everyone innocence.
Matt groening has created a timeless family that we can all relate to.
He is also the creator of Futurama and the author of the weekly comic strip Life in Hell.
He's the middle child of five children.
His mother's name was Margaret Wiggum and his father's name was Homer Philip Groening.
The Disney movie One Hundred and One Dalmatians was one of the things that got him into cartoons.
hope this helped a little ^^
sorry i couldn't find anything more interesting

What was Matt Groening's inspiration for the character Homer Simpson?
Much of the Simpsons is based on events from Groenings life (and Simpson writers lives) or is related to Groening's hometown of Portland Oregon.
It probably just seemed funny that Homer have the job that he does.
How longs does it take matt groening and co to make 1 episode of the simpsons?
Question: How long does it take to make one episode?
Mike Scully(a writer on the show): 9 months. From the time we start working on the script til the show hits the air. We have about 15-16 writers. At any given time, we're working on 7-8 different episodes. We're breaking stories now for episodes that will air next February.
Happy Birthday to Matt Groening! Who are your top 3 characters from The Simpsons?
that's enough lol. no order, but Moe is definitely my #1
three is too hard, I can name more than 20 that I love
BQ- it was decent, no big deal though
BQ2- Cape Feare, Rosebud, Bart's Comet, upon many many more
BQ3- "Well, he's had it in for me ever since I kinda ran over his dog... Well, replace the word 'kinda' with 'repeatedly' and the word 'dog' with 'son'."- Lionel Hutz
yessssss! i will edit
The new Futurma films in order are Benders Big Score, The Beast With a Billion Backs, Benders Game, and Into the Wild Green Yonder is going to conclude the movie serise and is coming out soon (cant wait!) Futurama was equally as funny as the Simpsons are its just that most people proboley didnt get the humor and thought that it was a little too "lude". But whatever. Furturama won't stop for a long time.

It is hard to find and email adress, since they don't want to be overloaded with emails of fans.
Is futurama/Matt Groening is related to the illuminati?
a great way to the people is through their television sets, probably a cause of more greenhouse gases than cars but there you go, we never get told to turn our tvs off do we?
tv, popular tv shows are hijacked and messages, morals, whatever you call it are blended in for our viewing pleasure, we take in the information subconsciously but enough of pounding a message in will have an efffect - look at diet coke, everyone drinks it, everyone sits in front of the tv drinking it, looking at adverts and being softened to the suggestions of tv land by its one active ingredient - aspartame - look it up if your researching NWO and illuminati stuff, look at who brought apsartame to the food market, i wont spoil it for you just go check, youll recognise him, look where aspartame came from and what it was developed for, and that is just one tiny little subjet on the NWO agenda
wars, bank collapses, market crashes, drug laws, drugs approved - this is deeply entrenched stuff and the more you look at it the less youll see the safe lovely world you thought you lived in
Does Matt Groening acknowledge the Simpsons have sucked for 10 years?
He admitted he has little control over it now. If he believed it to be high quality, he would not say he has little control because he'd want to be associated with high quality. So his admission that he lost control is him saying he knows its bad now. He also acknowledges it in subtle ways. For the early season DVDs, he did commentary on every episode but he doesnt do as many now because he makes it known he wont do commentary for episodes he dislikes.
Matt Groening trying to make a point about America not having a free health care system?
The UK doesn't have a free health care service as such; we have a National health care service where everyone pays the same % of their income, known as National Insurance Contributions. This ensures that we insure ourselves for any health care and treatment we and our families may need. As it is a social programme, it also means that everyone contributes to the health of the nation as a whole.
Being brought up under this system, it's almost impossible to imagine that I wouldn't ever get the medical treatment I needed because I hadn't got the money or I hadn't paid enough into a health insurance plan.,
Does Matt Groening have much involvement with the creative process of every Simpsons episode?
He currently serves at The Simpsons as an executive producer and creative consultant, so he doesn’t just sit on his arse and let the money roll in. Although he is the creator and patient of the Simpsons, he’s 56 now, hardly a young man, and he can’t spend his whole life completely consumed by the show. Don’t forget he does a lot of other things as well, he’s still a busy man even if he doesn’t have as much involvement in the Simpsons as he did when it began, I’m sure he still works very hard.
How many more seasons of the simpsons do you think matt groening has left in him?
I don't think Matt Groening himself has much to do with the production of the show any more. There's a writing staff, an animation staff, and a whole bunch of producers.
Yeah, he created the show, but other than approving ideas and cashing a check, I don't think he has too much to do with it these days.
EDIT: Technically he's exec. producer and creative consultant, but to me those just sound like honorary titles. He co-wrote the Simpsons movie, but I doubt he does much work on each episode. (nor should he...)
Will someone else draw The Simpsons when Matt Groening retires?
Matt Groening only works on the Simpson sometimes. Most of it has been a studio project since the eighties -- including the design of it. Hey, Peyo himself was more interested in the Jehan strip the Smurfs were a spinoff of. He mostly handled marketing for the Smurfs and the studio is still intact even though he died years ago. Groening's strip is Life in Hell. The Simpsons began as a side project and he keeps going back and forth. Matt Groening the studio already does it even when Matt Groening the person isn't there and one can assume it will continue when he is no longer there at all.
Any chance Seth MacFarlane and Matt Groening could ever work together?
Would be fun but doubtful. Love hate relationship between them.
I am very happy to see that Seth MacFarlane is at the helm for the re vamping and return of The Flintstones. Wonder what Fred and Wilma will be like with Seth MacFarlane behind them? I am sure I will love it.
do u know when matt groening will make a new simpsons Book?
Here are some of the books scheduled to be released by Matt Groening this year:
Title Release Date
The Simpsons/Futurama Infinitely Secret Crossover Crisis June 2009
Chief Wiggum: Simpsons Library of Wisdom August 2009
Homer for the Holidays October 2009
Why doesn't Matt Groening stop the Simpsons series?
Compare today's episodes with episodes from, say, the seventh season, and you'd be hard pressed to tell the difference. It's the same stories, the same jokes, the same characterization. But watch the first season again, and you realize once upon a time the Simpsons were an actual family with stories to tell and a reason to waste a half hour a week tuning in to see what would happen next.
So why not end it? It's easy money for everyone involved. Fox wouldn't know what to do with itself without the Simpsons. For a lot of young people, the Simpsons has aired as long as they can remember. I mean, it feels like that to me and I'm getting pretty old. Plus they could probably continue it indefinitely at this point. There's so many episodes in the bag, they could probably start splicing audio and animation into entirely new episodes without doing any extra work.
And finally, I doubt Mr. Groening needs to put much effort into the series at this point. Why not let others run things while you bring in money. It's not like his other ventures have been nearly as successful.
How did Matt Groening get the Simpsons out in the public?
You can try sending your cartoons to magazines and newspapers.
Send them 6-10 samples of your cartoons with a cover letter and a self addressed stamped envelope so that they can return your work if they don't want it.
There is a 90% rejection rate with cartoons, so don't just send them to anyone. Find newspapers and magazines that have the same audience that you think will like your humor. Also, if you have local magazines and newspapers, they might be easier to get published by as opposed to national papers and magazines.
Once you are published, you will have more credentials and more papers or magazines will be willing to publish you.
You can also make your own self published books and find a store to sell them. The good people at Kinkos or your local copy shop can help you do this.
