The Fox network's most successful series to date was a spin-off from "The Tracey Ullman Show" in which originally appeared as one minute shorts. The executive producers of that series, James L. Brooks and Sam Simon decided that these characters could support a half an hour series.
It is now reported as the longest animated series in prime-time network television.
Maggie Roswell is an American film and television actress and voice artist from Los Angeles, California. ...
Luann Van Houten is voiced by Maggie Roswell. When Roswell left the show, she became a primarily nonspeaking character. However, Roswell has since returned. She first appeared in Homer Defined.
Luann Van Houten originated from Tuscany, Italy, showing she is an Italian American, as her mother is Italian. She was born in Shelbyville, however moved to Springfield in an early life. Her character lacks the stereotypically exaggerated mannerisms associated with most other Italian Americans on The Simpsons, such as the mobster Fat Tony, or the chef Luigi. When younger, she went to "Camp Land-a-Man", a camp to utilize girls into women with Marge, Patty and Selma, Helen Lovejoy, and Cookie Kwan ("The Way We Weren't").
Luann was married to Kirk for several years and bore a son and remained in an unhappy marriage. After an argument over a game of Pictionary, she leaves Kirk after he remarks he can't draw "dignity", since he gave it up when he married her. Although Kirk found the new liberty of a single life tough, Luann uses her newfound freedom to live life on the fast lane. Luann began dating American Gladiator Pyro shortly after her divorce with Kirk (Pyro being a reference to real-life Gladiator Nitro) for several seasons, but was caught cheating on him with his best friend, Gyro.
