    Matt Groening's Favorite People, Part #1

    In Simpsons Comics #14, Matt makes a list echoing Frank Zappa's "These People Have Contributed Materially in Many Ways to Make Our Music What it is. Please Do Not Hold it Against them" list. Most of these people can be identified as cartoonists, musicians, Bongo contributors, filmmakers, and the likes, but some of these people I can not identify. Cryptically he includes in between The Flamingoes and Erich Von Strreherind (misspelled as Stroheim), "Rover, Shep, Mewler, Junior, Frosty, Chewmungy." if anyone knows who these people are, please tell me.

    I've tried to categorize these people to the best of my ability
