Julie Kavner graduated from San Diego State University and started off working in a television series called Rhoda. Kavner's unique voice earned her a place on The Tracey Ullman Show in 1987, which eventually led to Julie starring on The Simpsons as one of the main characters, Marge Simpson. When Julie was thinking of the perfect voice for Patty & Selma, she asked for Jim Brooks' advice and he responded with 'They suck the joy out of everything'.
