Inspired by this clever image, I thought I would whip it up in R.
Results:

Below is the R code:

1:  # Prepare -----------------------------------------------------------------  
2: rm(list=ls());gc()
3: pkg <- c("ggplot2")
4: inst <- pkg %in% installed.packages()
5: if(length(pkg[!inst]) > 0) install.packages(pkg[!inst])
6: lapply(pkg,library,character.only=TRUE)
7: rm(inst,pkg)
8: # Create dataset ----------------------------------------------------------
9: d1 <- data.frame(member=c(rep("Homer",3),
10: rep("Marge",3),
11: rep("Bart",3),
12: rep("Lisa",2),
13: rep("Maggie",2)),
14: shade=c("HomerPants","HomerShirt","Skin",
15: "MargeDress","Skin","MargeHair",
16: "BartShorts","BartShirt","Skin",
17: "LisaDress","Skin",
18: "MaggieOnesie","Skin"),
19: height=c(20,20,25,
20: 40,20,40,
21: 15,15,18,
22: 28,15,
23: 18,11))
24: d1$member <- ordered(d1$member,levels=c("Homer","Marge","Bart","Lisa","Maggie"))
25: d1$shade <- ordered(d1$shade,levels=c("HomerPants","HomerShirt","Skin",
26: "MargeDress","MargeHair",
27: "BartShorts","BartShirt",
28: "LisaDress",
29: "MaggieOnesie"))
30: # Chart the data ----------------------------------------------------------
31: g1 <- ggplot(d1,aes(x=member,y=height,fill=shade)) +
32: geom_bar(stat="identity") +
33: scale_fill_manual(values=c("#3333FF","#FFFFFF","#FFFF33",
34: "#66CC33","#000099",
35: "#6633CC","#CC0000",
36: "#FF6600",
37: "#0099CC")) +
38: theme(legend.position="none",
39: axis.title.x=element_blank(),
40: axis.title.y=element_blank(),
41: axis.text.x=element_blank(),
42: axis.text.y=element_blank()) +
43: ggtitle("Moe's Bar Chart")
44: g1
45: # Save image --------------------------------------------------------------
46: png("Simpsons.png")
47: g1
48: dev.off()
