Watch This: A 1969 Kids' Film from Homer, Lisa, Maggie & Matt Groening

The real Homer. Homer Groening, that is.

Back in 1969, filmmaker Homer Groening enlisted his kids to star in a short film called THE STORY. It follows the children on a visit to the zoo, as the older brother Matt Groening (born on this date in 1954) tells a roundabout tale about the different animals to his younger sisters Lisa and Maggie.

You don't have to be a SIMPSONS fan to be enthralled by this, but it sure helps. Thanks to the great Skip Elsheimer of AV Geeks for saving and sharing this film.
