- This article is about the character. For the writer, see George Meyer.
George Meyer is a former writer for The Itchy & Scratchy Show.
Meyer is employed as writer on The Itchy & Scratchy Show at the time of Abraham Simpson's tenure on the show. Some time later, he attends the emergency staff meeting at the show, following its sudden ratings drop. Meyer responds to executive Lindsey Naegle's suggestion of a hip dog character being introduced to the show, questioning her use of the words "proactive" and "paradigm" as merely "buzzwords that dumb people use to sound important." Although not "accusing [her] of anything like that," Meyer quickly and correctly realizes he is fired. Meyer is now unemployed and collects his social security check regularly from the Springfield Unemployment Office. He later walked past Bart on the street. He was on Kent Brockman's list of people who are gay.
In an alternative Springfield created by Professor Frink, Meyer was the host of Late Night with George Meyer.
