Why don't I see any Simpsons shirt designs anywhere? It seems like Woot or TeeFury would be all over this. I see a ton of shirts done in the style of Peanuts and Dr. Seuss, but why not yellow people with overbites?

Is it a fiercely protected IP, or has it been done but doesn't sell? I know the Simpsons are a beloved fandom, so what's the deal?

For clarification, I mean characters done in Simpsons style, or actual Simpsons characters, not just concepts from the show. Like this Barney Stinson parody I did:

There was this one by DrawsGood which ran on TeeFury, but it seems to have been deleted from their archive, and from his RedBubble page. Legal reasons maybe?
