    IMDB reckons so: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0732665/fullcredits?ref_=tt_ov_wr#writers

    An actual off-air copy of the episode somebody kindly dragged out for me disagrees:

    Unless whoever added this to IMDB knows something I don’t, presumably Fuller contributed something else to this episode that just came under “additional material” that was wrongly categorised with the Simpsons short for the IMDB listing.

    However, quite a few writers (plus a producer) on The Tracey Ullman Show went on to write for The Simpsons when it became a full series. So an interesting look at what could have been if Fuller had also made the leap. If nothing else, “Spiceworld” would never have been made.

    According to Wikipedia, “Fuller spent some time in the USA writing on network comedy shows such as The Tracey Ullman Show and Tracey Takes On….”

    Also mentioned on the official RD site http://www.reddwarf.co.uk/features/interviews/kim-fuller/index.cfm?page=biography

    Google provides nothing much more than those and a link to this very forum post

    He definitely wrote for Tracey Ullman – there are some other episodes of the show on YouTube and he’s credited on them.

    Kim Fuller definitely wrote for Lenny Henry (‘Live and Unleashed’), and Lenny Henry and Tracy Ullman were in Three of a Kind together with David Copperfield (I think?), so it is entirely possible that Kim Fuller wrote bits for The Simpsons as a staff writer. Amazingly.

    Kim Fuller wrote Spiceworld as a favour to his brother Simon Fuller, aka the manager of the Spice Girls.

    Although that scene definitely has a strong claim for the title of funniest comedy scene ever, I wish people would stop using it as a meme. It’s detracting from the quality of the original.
