Trivia

  • Name Change: David X. Cohen originally was credited under the name "David S. Cohen," his real middle initial. In 1998, animated primetime shows unionized and Cohen was required to join the Writers Guild of America. However, there was already a David S. Cohen in the WGA so he took on the meaningless "X" initial. He claims to have chosen the X because it sounded "scifi-ish" and so that he would be the David Cohen people would remember.
