Of course, I don't mean this literally!!
I can see the replies if I chose the "serious" route to this subject ....... "It's just a cartoon, moron!!"
But did you ever wonder what Matt Groening's GREAT program, "The Simpsons", would be like if he did in fact have the characters age in real time?
Bart would be about 22; Homer should be, what?, about 50 or so?? HOLY GRAVEYARD....Mr. Burns, already Springfield's oldest citizen, would be 119!!!
Hey.....Does anyone know how Groening has managed to keep the kids' voices (Bart & Lisa) virtually identical to the voices from the first season in 1989?? Obviously, the 2001 actors doing the kids' voices can't be the same people from 1989! Any idea??

I'm guessing Nancy Cartwright (i knew her name ) also does Nelson Muntz. Can't be bothered to click the link.
The voices are not enhanced, as before 1992 or 1993 Homer (who's voice is done by some bloke) was supposed to sound a bit like some famous American bloke who was a bit of a dunce. But then they changed it to its present state.
Marge's voice has developed more, from a croak to more of a sort of female mafia person
Maggies i don't notice much difference
Bart is much the same, but once more his is more developed from his original, which was very sort of Gullible and stupid.
Lisa sounded alot younger, more like a normal 8yr old when the program started, now she sounds like a woman, but with an undeveloped voice. I don't like her voice now, especially when her and Homer go into those tanks at the weirdo hippy lady shop.

Lisa's voice is done by Yearley Smith...who is an actress on "Dharma & Greg" She plays Greg's assistant.
Anyone here remember a show called "Herman's Head" some years back?? Yearley was on there too. Regards.

Dan Castellanella (sp?) is the voice of Homer Simpsons. Dan, is in several movies with small roles. Also Hank Azaria is a voice for a character in the Simpsons but I forgot which. He's also in some tv series shows.
