You see, we’ve spotted that lead character Joy (voiced by Amy Poehler) bears a striking resemblance to iconic cartoon matriarch Marge Simpson, as voiced by Julie Kavner for many years. See what we mean?
Granted, Joy’s ‘do is a little different from Marge’s (perhaps the sort of pixie crop she might have sported in her younger Bouvier days) and she’s lacking the necklace and shoes, but we still think the similarities in skin tone, hair colour and clothing are pretty uncanny.
And if you think about it, with their optimistic outlooks and attempts to preside over unruly families, Marge and Joy aren’t so different after all.
