What do LaTeX, Magical Staves and the Simpsons have in common?

I’m using LaTeX a lot to write my thesis. Today, when searching for something in the complete manual (PDF), I came across this:


  1. Dinkelseele:

    hey, I too stumbled upon LaTeX’s Simpsons support recently — the problem is though, I could not get any Simpsons characters appear šŸ™ I added usepackage{simspons} and typed \Homer but it did not work šŸ™ Have you tried it yourself?

  2. ripper234:

    Sorry, I tried looking for it today but couldn’t find any real latex document on the web that uses the Simpsons symbols šŸ™

    It didn’t work on my Miktex either.

  3. Dinkelseele:

    Pity…I wonder what the story is with these characters, I rather like them …well anyways… šŸ™‚

  4. Dinkelseele:

    Think this should do it:
    But have not tried it šŸ™‚

  5. molecule-eye:

    I just noticed this as well. Actually I think I noticed it before but it never clued in. Someone needs to make a Scooby Do package as well. Otherwise the comprehensive symbol feels inadequately incomplete.

  6. Phobos:

    Think it works only with pdflatex
