In an effort to get young people interested in stamp collecting, the U.S. Postal Service is launching a collection of "The Simpsons" postage stamps on the 7th of May.

The first-class stamps, worth 44 cents each, are particularly special given that "The Simpsons" is the only television show to be featured as the sole subject of a stamp set while still in prime-time production.

Creator and executive producer of "The Simpsons" Matt Groening described the stamps as "the biggest and most adhesive honor The Simpsons has ever received." Stats for "The Simpsons" Stamps Trending: Older & Chilly
