Did Matt Groening Steal Homer Simpson From This 1949 Cartoon?

You decide.

This strip is from a 1949 Icelandic magazine.
Homer has two hairs, this guy has three.
Homer’s an idiot. This guy is an idiot.
Their heads are quite similar.
Unknown: Is the 1949 Homer wearing blue pants?
He’s thinner and smokes a cigar.
Probably a coincidence.
