[[Dan Castellaneta]] and [[Julie Kavner]] were already members of "[[The Tracey Ullman Show]]". Rather than hire more actors for voices for ''The Simpsons'' animated shorts, the producers asked both Castellaneta and Kavner to provide the voices of characters [[Homer]] and [[Marge]]. [[Yeardley Smith]] originally wanted to play the role of [[Bart]], but the producers found her voice too "girlish". Instead, she was given the role of [[Bart]]'s sister, [[Lisa Simpson]]. [[Bart]] was voiced by [[Nancy Cartwright]], who originally auditioned for the role of Lisa but decided to be the voice of Bart instead after finding out that Lisa had a lack of personality at the time, while the character of Bart was "devious, underachieving, school-hating, irreverent, and clever".

[[Hank Azaria]] was a voice actor for the short-lived cartoon "Hollywood Dog" at the time. The casting director of the cartoon was also casting director of ''The Simpsons'', and Hank signed up for the role of [[Moe Syzlak]]. Later, he voiced several other characters, including [[Chief Clancy Wiggum|Chief Wiggum]] and [[Apu Nahasapeemapetilon|Apu]]. [[Harry Shearer]] was reluctant to be a voice actor on the show but was convinced by [[James L. Brooks]] to join the cast "after three phone calls."
