Matt Groening net worth: Matt Groening is an American animator, author, TV producer and cartoonist who has a net worth of $500 million. Matt Groening earned his impressive fortune by creating The Simpsons. When Groening first moved to LA from Portland, he worked a series less than desirable day jobs. When he wasn't at one of these jobs, he was pouring all his frustrations into a self-published animated book called "Life in Hell". The comic strip grew a following and even managed to catch the eye of Hollywood heavy weight James L Brooks. Brooks invited Groening to bring his "Life in Hell" characters to the small screen for "Tracey Ullman Show". Fearing that he would have to give up ownership to the comic, Matt instead thought of another idea in the lobby of Brooks' office. That idea was "The Simpsons". The idea was simple: The life of the Simpson family, Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie, as we watch the trials and tribulation of their family dysfunction. Groening named the characters after members of his own family. Brooks loved the idea and the shorts became a hit on the Tracey Ullman Show. The Simpsons went on to became it's own prime time television show that to date has aired more than 500 episodes over 26+ seasons. Groening also created the show Futurama which aired 101 episodes over 6 seasons.
