Trivia: Life in Hell
  • Magnum Opus Dissonance / What Could Have Been: Originally, Matt Groening was going to use Life in Hell as animated filler for The Tracy Ullman Show, but after realizing that he would have to give up the rights to his creation, Groening (while waiting to pitch his idea to James L. Brooks) drew up some crudely drawn humans and named them "The Simpsons." That's right; had Groening actually gone along with pitching Life in Hell, there would be no Simpsons. Meanwhile the show became a cultural phenomenon while the strip stayed underground.
