Some sad news today, with confirmation that 'The Simpsons'co-creator Sam Simon has passed away at the far-too-young age of 59.
For five years, Simon developed 'The Simpsons' along with Matt Groening and James L. Brooks through its formative years serving as co-showrunner, character designer, creative consultant, creative supervisor, developer and as a writer. Simon left the show in 1993, but retained an executive producer title which earned residuals of up to $30 million a year.
After his cancer diagnosis in 2012, Simon decided to give his fortune away, establishing the Sam Simon Foundation to support his love of animals, and also supported numerous organisations such as PETA and Save the Children.
