|Guest Star Information
Tracey Ullman (born Trace Ullman; December 30, 1959) is an English-American actress, author, comedienne, dancer, director, screenwriter, and singer. Her show, The Tracey Ullman Show, was the series that the Simpsons shorts appeared on before spinning off into The Simpsons. She voiced Sylvia Winfield and Emily Winthrop in the season 2 episode "Bart's Dog Gets an "F"". She was also interviewed in The Simpsons 20th Anniversary Special – In 3-D! On Ice!.
Tracey Ullman filed a lawsuit in 1992, claiming that her show was the source of The Simpsons success and therefore should receive a share of the show's profit. "I breast-fed those little devils!" Tracey Ullman once said of The Simpsons. She wanted a share of The Simpsons' merchandising and gross profits and believed she was entitled to $2.5 million of Fox's estimated $50 million in 1992. The Fox network had paid her $58,000 in royalties for The Simpsons as well as $3 million for the three-and-a-half seasons her show was on the air. Eventually the courts ruled in favor of the network.
