Jon Vitti

Jon Vitti is a writer who is most noted for his well-received scripts for the television series The Simpsons. He has also written for the King of the Hill and The Critic series, and has served as a consultant for several animated movies, including Ice Age (2002) and Robots (2005). He is one of 11 writers who worked on The Simpsons Movie.

He most recently co-wrote the live-Action/CGI animated adaptations of Alvin and the Chipmunks: Alvin and the Chipmunks (2007) and Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel (2009).

He is a graduate of Harvard University, where he contributed to the Harvard Lampoon. Prior to joining The Simpsons, he had a brief stint with Saturday Night Live. He has stated on a DVD commentary that it was "a very unhappy year".

He is sometimes credited as "John Vitti".

He has also used the pseudonym Penny Wise. Jon used the pseudonym for episodes Another Simpsons Clip Show and The Simpsons 138th Episode Spectacular because he did not want to be credited for writing a clip show, as expressed on Simpsons DVD commentaries, yet ironically his name was credited for writing the first Simpsons clip show So It's Come to This: A Simpsons Clip Show.
