Sam Simon attended Beverley Hills High School and then Stanford University, purportedly on a football scholarship, but dropped out and graduated in 1977 with a bachelor’s degree in psychology, despite his dislike of studying. Simon started his career as a newspaper cartoonist before moving on to Filmation Studio as a writer, where he developed several animated shows, including the classic “Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids.” After that, he devised and scripted the sitcom “Shaping Up,” which starred Leslie Nielsen and Jennifer Tilly.

However, it wasn’t until 1989 that Sam Simon’s co-created animated show “The Simpsons” premiered on Fox, that he garnered widespread critical acclaim and public attention. The show was produced by Simon, James L. Brooks, and Matt Groening and was an instant financial hit. Its popularity escalated to the point that “The Simpsons” has aired 25 seasons and 552 episodes.

“The Simpsons,” the longest-running animated sitcom with some of the most beloved cartoon characters, has earned 27 Primetime Emmy Awards, a Peabody Award, and 30 Annie Awards, as well as a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Following that, in 2007, the film “The Simpsons Movie” was released to generally positive reviews and $527 million in box office receipts.

Needless to say, it earned Sam Simon a sizable annual pay, but during the production of “The Simpsons,” Sam Simon assisted in the co-creation of the sitcom “The George Carlin Show,” starring George Carlin and Alex Rocco. Simon next directed episodes of “Friends,” “The Michael Richards Show,” and “The Norm Show,” as well as consulting and directing Drew Carey, Ryan Stiles, and Craig Ferguson in “The Drew Carey Show.” His net worth was boosted by all of these factors.

Simon stepped away from television when he departed “The Simpsons.” Simon’s only other attempt was a comedy series with Charlie Sheen and Selma Blair called “Anger Management.” Simon received Primetime Emmy Awards, an Emmy for Outstanding Animated Program, and a Writers Guild of America Award for his services to the entertainment sector.
