This past Sunday's episode of The Simpsons revolved around the construction of a stamp museum next to their home in Springfield.

After much protest ("We'll be at the mercy of weekend philatelists...."), the museum is built elsewhere. Apparently daughter Lisa (she's the 'brainy' one) is a stamp collector or was least interested in seeing the newly relocated museum' s current exhibit and lecture on the upcoming "The Wild Beasts" stamp.

Todd Ronnei reports on the Virtual Stamp Club message board, that while there they saw interactive stamps of Frederic Ives (Scott 3063) and Alexander Graham Bell (Scott 893), among others.

According to people who know these sort of things, son Bart has mentioned his stamp collection (which was stolen) in a previous episode.

The Simpsons debut was on December 17, 1989. It has since become the longest running animated television series in American television history.
