Matt Groening’s character, Home Simpson, has been named by Entertainment Weekly as “the most recognizable and greatest character created for TV and Film of the last 20 years.”
“People can relate to Homer because we’re all secretly propelled by desires we can’t admit to,” Groening was quoted as telling Entertainment Weekly.
“Homer is launching himself head-first into every single impulsive thought that occurs to him. His love of whatever…is a joy to witness.”
Home beat out Harry Potter and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
