Born as Matthew Abram "Matt" Groening has an estimated net worth of $500 million. Groening is a voice actor, cartoonist, comedian, screenwriter, musician, producer, author, and also animator. Among his creations are the comic strip Life in Hell (1977-2012), The Simpsons (1989 to present), as well as Futurama  (1999-2003, 20008-2013). Life in Hell was his very first professional cartoon sale. He sold it to the avant-garde Wet magazine back in 1978. At the height of its popularity, the cartoon was carried in 250 weekly newspapers. Groening’s cartoon was noticed by James L. Books and contracted him in 1985 to work in animation under the Fox variety show The Tracey Ullman Show. Brooks initially wanted this animator to adapt his Life in Hell characters for the show. However, he feared that he may lose ownership rights. Groening decided to create a whole new set of characters and the Simpson’s family was born and he named the characters after his own parents and sisters. Bart was an anagram of the “brat”. The aforementioned cartoon series has more than 540 episodes. Later, Futurama was created together with former Simpsons writer David X. Cohen. This cartoon, on the other hand, features life in the year 3000 and premiered in 1999. This gentleman has bagged 12 Primetime Emmy Awards, ten for The Simpsons and two for Futurama. 2002 was the year when he received the National Cartoonist Society Reuben Award for Life in Hell. In 2004, he was given a British Comedy Award for “outstanding contribution to comedy”. On February 14, 2012, Groening received his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
