Hey there Hoppereenos!
By now the sadness heard in the Simpsons community has been spreading by wildfire around to Simpsons Fans worldwide. It seems one the favorite and most beloved voices of many Characters in the Simpsons TV Series may decide to not continue on with the show. Harry Shearer.
While bouncing round the birds last night (Twitter), I stumbled across some very strange Tweets from one of my beloved Actors, Harry Shearer. (I re-tweeted these to you from our TSTO Twitter Account last night.)
Confused and hoping just a joke, I tried to seek out more information. Was this true? Was he leaving? Many others were also trying to figure out if what we were seeing was in fact accurate and not just some “internet prank” to all of us Simpson Fanatics. Sadly, it seems there is some questionable activity with his new contracts and an agreement just was not met.
Is there still hope he may stay? I just know that I for one will miss his awesome and amazing voice should this be the final word on it all. It does seem there MIGHT still be hope… so keeping fingers crossed that SOMETHING may still happen. This coming from the guy who’s Lawyer seems to have sparked the conversation leading to the Tweet from Harry last night…
Looks like some negotiations may still be left to make. I am hopeful they do work out. Seems James L. Brooks, one of the shows Producers, still wants to talk it over.
Why is this such a big deal? Just what does this mean for the show? WHO does it impact? Well, let’s take a look at just WHO in the Simpsons TV Series Harry Shearer provides voices for.
Dr. Marvin Monroe
As well as some “celebrity voices” like…
George H.W. Bush
And so many more just random Character voices that the list just goes on n on n on…
What happens to all those Voices if the negotiations aren’t met? Well, we saw this too…
His fans responded in many numbers to the word of all this and he wrote back last night to them on his Twitter…
Why the conflict? It really is hard to know just all what goes on in those legal negotiations until they are released for public viewing. This wouldn’t be the first dispute in Simpson TV Series History.
What are your thoughts on all this? Did you realize just how many voices he does in the show? If he goes, how do you think the voices in the TV Series will change? Do you think the Fans rallying around him will help the effort to keep him? Let us know.
