Matt Groening has said that as a homage to Rocky and Bullwinkle, all of his characters have a middle name that starts with "J." (Bart J. Simpson, Phillip J. Fry, Homer J. Simpson.)

But Bender's middle name is "Bending."

Matt Groening doesn't have every middle name begin with a 'J'. Lisa's middle name is Marie so there!

spanish B sounds like english B, not j (english J are spanish Y or Ll and spanish J sound like english H)

Bending in spanish is spoken like in english -B-E-N-D-I-N-G-

I didn't know that. That's sweet, there's a tradition down all females on my mother's side of the family that they all have Marie somewhere in their names, usually as their middle name. My sister's called Meri, similar to Marie, (her full name's Meredydd - Welsh, don't ask.  tongue
Meredith in other words)
so her middle name is Ann.
Right.

I don't think Lisa's middle name is "Marie." What episode said that?

Lisa's middle name is revealed as "Marie" in the episode "Lisa's Wedding".  It's on her wedding invitations.

Perhaps he only does it with characters that reflect a part of his personality, Bart is a young Matt, Homer is Matt as a father, Fry when in his mid twenties. This is only postilation a part form the Bart and Homer ones which he said on some Simpson thing on BBC2.

Most common characters in his shows were names from actual people he met, or his relatives. For example, Life in Hell depicts his sons Will and Abe as rabbits.

Nope.  Abe is actually not his son's real name.  His real name is Homer, after his grandfather's name, but Matt said felt that it was gonna be hell his son to go throw life since the name Homer is equated with stupidity.  Abe is his nickname and the one that he uses when talking to him.

I would like to thank everybody for not using this post to make strained, predictable "Jay & Silent Bob" references. Thank you.

May I ask, who are Rocky and Bullwinkle? And what do they have to do with the letter "J"?

Hey skylight,

ik in oost-vlaanderen.
ps: spijtig dat er voor het moment geen futurama meer getoond word he, maar ik heb gemaild naar kanaal2 en ze zeggen dat het binnenkort terugkomt, maar de datum weet ik nog niet.

For the people who speak english, here is the trasulation.

Hey skylight,
Welcome to PEEL.
i'm glad to finally see someone from Belguim on PEEL.
Where do you live?
I live in East-Flanders.
ps: not so good that there is no futurama on for the moment huh, but i emailed to Kanaal2 and they said that it will return, only they don't know the date yet.

Don't be mad if there is anything wrong in the trasulation , my english is not at its best.


You were right Fry.
From now on Iím going to bend what I want, when I want, who I want!
Iím unstoppable!
