Did Matt Groening Steal Homer Simpson From This 1949 Cartoon?

You decide.

Posted on

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.
