First appearance Homer's Odyssey
Voiced by Hank Azaria
His surname "Wiggum" is Matt Groening's mother's maiden name. As "a conscious pun" Wiggum was designed to look like a pig. Hank Azaria first based his voice for Wiggum on David Brinkley but it was too slow and he switched it to an Edward G. Robinson impression.
The Simpsons has a floating time-line which means that the characters do not age. No age is given is Chief Clancy Wiggum’s biography.|
It does indicate in here though that he did grow up in Springfield and was among the same class and age group as Homer Simpson, Lenny Leonard, Carl Carlson and Barney Grumble.
If we check Homer Simpson’s biography …
there is an indication here that Homer is between nine and twelve years old in the mid 60’s i.e. he was born early to mid fifties … hence you should be able to place Chief Wiggum in the same era.
