    Do you think he meant 55 hundred? Or maybe 55 thousand?

    no way it is $55,000, since the real homer (up until recently) made $125,000 per episode. very unlikely it is $5,500 either.

    I say FIRE THEM ALL and go with subtitles. They're a bunch of ringers. A "fake cast". Julie Kavner is Marge Simpson, period.

    $55 per episode may be a reasonable amount to pay for a couple hours work in Mexico. $125K is way too much.

    That's a bit fucking cold, don't you think? Most of the time, your not going to hear them unless you set the SAP on your TV to Spanish, or the DVD's to Spanish language. But come on though $55 dollars an episode? For the billions of dollars that The Simpsons has made? If you times that by 1000 its still a fraction of of what their English-speaking counterparts have made/make.

    Cut them some slack...pay them a few thousand. I wish them good luck.
