Simon's credit during "Treehouse of Horror" episodes has always been "Sam 'Sayonara' Simon," which is believed to be a reference to his early departure from the series.
Was the Dial-a-Friend for both Norm McDonald and Drew Carey during their appearances on "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?" in 2000.
His home in the Pacific Palisades was largely destroyed in a 2007 fire, after which Simon replaced most of the building material with recycled material and powered the entire house with solar panels.
His large collection of art includes one of the original reproductions of "The Thinker," as well as paintings by American artists Thomas Hart Benton and John Singer Sargeant.
Produced and appeared in the short-lived "Sam's Game" (2009) for Playboy TV; the series, which featured Simon as host and an array of celebrities, including ex-wife Jennifer Tilly, in high-stakes poker at Hugh Hefner's Palm Springs estate.
Trained as a boxer following his departure from "The Simpsons" and won six out of nine bouts.
PETA named their Norfolk, Virginia headquarters after Simon.
