Simon co-developed the animated series The Simpsons, which premiered on the Fox network in 1989 and has remained on air ever since.The show is regarded as one of the greatest television shows of all time, with Time magazine naming it the 20th century's best series.Simon attended Beverly Hills High School, where he was on the football team and served as a cartoonist for the school newspaper.He was awarded "Most Humorous" and "Most Talented" in his senior yearbook.The following year Simon co-created The George Carlin Show, before later working as a director on shows such as The Drew Carey Show.
While at Stanford University, Simon worked as a newspaper cartoonist and after graduating became a storyboard artist at Filmation Studios.
The premise for the series originated as a series of short cartoons airing in 1987 as part of The Tracey Ullman Show, on which Simon was a writer and executive producer alongside James L. For The Simpsons, Simon served alongside Matt Groening (who conceived the show and the five main characters) and Brooks as executive producer and showrunner for the show's first (1989–1990) and second (1990–1991) seasons, Levine says that Simon "brought a level of honesty to the characters" and made them "three-dimensional", adding that his "comedy is all about character, not just a string of gags. The stories come from the characters." One of his contributions to the show's character development was his proposal that Waylon Smithers should be gay, but that this should never have too much attention drawn to it; Smithers' sexuality became one of the show's longest-running gags.
In The Simpsons, the characters are motivated by their emotions and their foibles. Simon saw The Simpsons as a chance to solve "what [he] didn't like about the Saturday-morning cartoon shows [he had] worked on...[he] wanted all the actors in a room together, not reading their lines separated from each other. If you just listen to the sound track, it works." The Simpsons utilized a process of collaborative script re-writing by the show's whole writing staff; this meant the credited writer may not have been responsible for the majority of an episode's content.
After graduating, he worked as a television storyboard artist, and later a writer, at Filmation Studios.
There he worked on several animated shows, including The New Adventures of Mighty Mouse and Heckle & Jeckle and Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids (1979).
