Quick Takes

Springfield's new resident

October 17, 2009|Associated Press

"The Simpsons" is giving one lucky contest winner the chance to make others yellow with envy by creating a character for the animated TV series.

The new Springfield resident will appear in an early 2010 episode featuring Chris Martin of Coldplay as guest star.

The contest, part of the Fox show's 20th-anniversary celebration, is for those 18 and older. It opened Friday and runs until Oct. 24.

Online submissions at thesimpsons.com should be "pithy and funny," said executive producer Al Jean, who will help judge them along with series creator Matt Groening.

"It's gotta be a human being. We've narrowed it down that much," Jean said.
