List of one-time The Simpsons characters

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The following is a list of one-time characters from the American animated television comedy series The Simpsons.

Some of the characters have returned to the show, sometimes in brief speaking appearances, or just 'in the crowd' scenes. Other characters originally intended to be one-time characters have ended up becoming regular cast members, such as Cletus Spuckler, Luigi Risotto, Disco Stu, Groundskeeper Willie, Crazy Cat Lady, Cookie Kwan and Lindsey Naegle.

For purposes of this list, "one-time" means they were central to an episode one time. Some of the characters listed here have appeared in later episodes, but only briefly. The characters are sorted by episode.

Series characters[edit]

Season 1[edit]

  • "Homer's Night Out"
    • Gulliver Dark (Sam McMurray), a lounge singer and playboy.[3] After Homer's speech about how women should not be seen or treated as sex objects, Dark decides to call his mother, as she sounded depressed the last time she called him. A man who looks and acts similar to Gulliver Dark was seen singing a fiery revenge song about Mr. Burns on the season seven premiere episode, "Who Shot Mr. Burns, part two".
  • "The Crepes of Wrath"
    • César (Dan Castellaneta) and Ugolin (Harry Shearer) are two hostile French winemakers who force Bart to be their slave. Both briefly appear again in "Lisa the Greek", living in an apartment in Paris and watching a Jerry Lewis movie instead of The Super Bowl.[4]
    • Adil Hoxha (Tress MacNeille), a foreign exchange student from Albania who replaced Bart when he was deported to France. He was actually an Albanian spy who was deported back to Albania in exchange for an American spy (also a child) caught in Albania.[4] His last name is a reference to former Albanian leader Enver Hoxha, albeit an unintentional one, as stated by Al Jean in the DVD commentary for this episode.[5]
  • "Some Enchanted Evening"
    • Ms. Botz/Lucille Botzcowski (Penny Marshall) is an escaped criminal, known as "The Babysitter Bandit", who tried to rob the Simpson family, but was thwarted and captured by Bart, Lisa, and Maggie. She deceives Homer into freeing her moments before the police arrived, who thought that the kids were merely tormenting yet another babysitter. In "Bart's Dog Gets an F" a news broadcast mentions that she has escaped from prison. She appears in "Hurricane Neddy", pacing back and forth in a cell in Calmwood Mental Hospital.
    • Babysitting Receptionist (June Foray) is a receptionist who banned The Simpsons from getting babysitters.

Season 2[edit]

  • "Simpson and Delilah"
    • Karl (Harvey Fierstein) was Homer's assistant who tried to help Homer succeed as an executive. When Homer was about to be fired for his misdeeds, Karl took the blame and was fired in his place. Karl is the first openly gay character on The Simpsons and kisses Homer after getting fired.[6]
  • "Old Money"
    • Beatrice "Bea" Simmons (Audrey Meadows) was Grampa Simpson's girlfriend. They met at the Springfield Retirement Castle. After arranging a date for Bea's birthday, Grampa was forced to stand her up when Homer took him to "Discount Lion Safari". When he returned to the Retirement Castle, Bea had died and left all her money to Abe.[9]
  • "Lisa's Substitute"
    • Mr. Bergstrom (Dustin Hoffman, credited as "Sam Etic"[11]) was Lisa's substitute teacher. Mr. Bergstrom took over for Ms. Hoover after she believed she had got Lyme disease and Lisa immediately took to him because he was the kind of male role model she needed in her life. However, after Ms. Hoover returned, he had to leave Springfield. A distraught Lisa ran to stop him, and Mr. Bergstrom gave her a note saying "You are Lisa Simpson".[12] He later makes a brief non-speaking appearance in the 25th season episode The Kid Is All Right.

Season 3[edit]

  • "Stark Raving Dad"
    • Leon Kompowsky (voiced by Michael Jackson, Kipp Lennon and Hank Azaria)[13] was a mental patient who pretended to be Michael Jackson. The character was voiced by Michael Jackson (who, for contractual reasons, was credited as "John Jay Smith").[14] The producers of the show were legally prevented from confirming Jackson guest starred at the time, although many media sources (correctly) assumed it was really him.[15][16][17][18] A year after the episode aired, the writers decided to make a sequel where Leon Kompowsky returns, thinking he is the musician Prince (and voiced by Prince himself), who encourages everyone in town to be sexually liberated, but it was later scrapped when Prince declined.[19]
  • "Flaming Moe's"
    • Collette (Jo Ann Harris), a waitress hired by Moe. Catherine O'Hara originally agreed to do the voice and recorded her part for the character; however, the producers felt that her voice did not fit the role and instead had Jo Ann Harris do the part.[22]

Season 4[edit]

  • "Kamp Krusty"
    • Mr. Black (Harry Shearer) was Krusty's accountant and the evil camp director of Kamp Krusty who hires local thugs Dolph, Jimbo, and Kearney to be counselors to break the kids' spirits (which does not work when Bart leads an insurrection against them). He promptly flees on a hydrofoil, never to be seen again. Mark Kirkland was sure that the character was going to reappear later in the series, but he never did.[25] However, he appears in a comic book based on the series where he has Homer sell him a company while "filling in" for Moe, who was literally tied up down in his basement.
  • "Lisa the Beauty Queen"
    • Amber Dempsey, (Lona Williams) a professional child beauty queen who once won Pork Princess and Little Miss Kosher in the same week. She has eyelash implants (which are only legal in Paraguay) and is referred to by Lisa as "the Jack Nicklaus" of the pageant circuit (not because they're attractive, but because they both win all the time). Amber wins The Little Miss Springfield Beauty Pageant, but the crown is turned over to Lisa (the first runner-up) after Amber gets struck by lightning during a store opening. She is hospitalized and quickly becomes "Little Miss Intensive Care".[27]
    • Jack Larson (Harry Shearer), is president of Laramie Cigarettes, and once owned the Springfield Isotopes. He also was the spokesperson in a commercial for the Little Miss Springfield pageant, with Laramie cigarettes as the main sponsor.
    • Menthol Moose, a longtime Joe Camel-esque spokesman for Laramie Cigarettes. He seems well past his prime and Laramie Cigarettes wishes to retire him.
  • "New Kid on the Block"
    • Laura Powers (Sara Gilbert) is the teenage daughter of Ruth Powers. Her first and only speaking appearance is when her family moved next door to Bart after the elderly Winfields moved out. Bart developed a crush on her, but ended up in heartbreak when he found out her boyfriend was Jimbo Jones, whom she later breaks up with after Moe threatens to kill him over a prank call that Bart made and Jimbo breaks down sobbing. Ruth mentions Laura in "Marge On The Lam" when Ruth tells Marge that she has to head home before her daughter watches "that naked talk show".[28] She never reappears in a main role (though her mother Ruth has appeared from time to time), but is occasionally in background scenes.
  • "Marge vs. the Monorail"
    • Lyle Lanley (Phil Hartman) is a smooth talking con man who talks the people of Springfield into buying an expensive monorail after Mr. Burns was forced to give the town three million dollars (although it's revealed at the town meeting that one million dollars has mysteriously disappeared, most likely taken by Mayor Quimby). He uses song and slick salesmanship to get the whole town behind the idea that Springfield should buy a monorail system, but then uses the money he skimmed from the shoddily-built monorail to go on vacation without concern for the Springfieldianites. However, an angry mob of North Haverbrook residents attack him during an unexpected flight layover, their city having previously fallen for his monorail scam.[30]
    • Sebastian Cobb (Harry Shearer) A scientist who built North Haverbrook's monorail for Lyle Lanley.[30]
  • "Brother from the Same Planet"
    • Tom (Phil Hartman) is Bart's "Bigger Brother". Bart decides to get a bigger brother after Homer failed to pick him up from soccer practice. At the aquarium, Homer got into a fight with him. At the end of the episode, he became Pepi's big brother. The part was written for Tom Cruise, but Cruise declined so the role was given to Phil Hartman instead.[31]
    • Pepi (Tress MacNeillie) is a poor boy who lives in Springfield and becomes Homer's 'Little Brother'. At the end of the episode, he becomes Tom's 'Little Brother' after Homer and Bart reconcile.[32]
  • "I Love Lisa"
    • Sideshow Raheem (Michael Carrington): the militant black Sideshow partner Krusty had on his show in the 1970s. Has an Afro and wears a dashiki and dark sunglasses. Was seen at Krusty's funeral on "Bart the Fink".
    • Rex (Dan Castellaneta): a melodramatic boy in Lisa's class who auditioned to play George Washington during the school's Presidents' Day pageant, but was turned down for Ralph Wiggum by Ms. Hoover (so she can have the Denver boot removed from her car tire). Was cast as George Washington's butler who appeared near the end of the performance. Another boy with a similar personality to the Rex in this episode appeared in season six's "Bart of Darkness," but his appearance was drastically altered, looking somewhat like Hugh Parkfield, the Englishman Lisa almost marries in "Lisa's Wedding."
    • Johnny (Dan Castellaneta): Principal Skinner's Army buddy who was shot down while off-guard writing a Valentine during the Vietnam War while stationed in Da Nang. Skinner was thinking of him while explaining over the PA that "Valentine's Day is no joke", only to lapse into a full-on flashback while still broadcasting.
  • "Last Exit to Springfield"
    • Dr. Wolfe (Hank Azaria) is the intimidating and judgmental dentist that the Simpson family visits. Anthony Perkins had agreed to voice Dr. Wolfe, but unfortunately fell ill and could not record the part. Clint Eastwood and Anthony Hopkins had also been asked to provide a voice, but both declined. Perkins was then asked and while he expressed interest, he died before recording. The role went to Azaria.[33]

Season 5[edit]

  • "Homer Goes to College"
    • Dean Peterson (Hank Azaria) Dean of Springfield Community College. Homer psychologically projects onto him the role of an uptight, intolerant dean that he's seen in film, despite Peterson's friendly and laid-back demeanor. The character made a brief speaking appearance in the episode "Faith Off" looking and acting completely different.[36]
  • "Bart's Inner Child"
    • Brad Goodman (Albert Brooks) is a self-help guru. After talking to Bart Simpson during a lecture at Springfield, he encourages the town to be more like Bart and to "do what you feel like", which eventually causes disastrous consequences. The people of Springfield go so far as to construct a golden statue of him in a parody of the biblical golden calf. His is the third character to be voiced by Brooks in the show.[37]
  • "Homer the Vigilante"
    • Molloy the Cat Burglar (Sam Neill) is a thief and cat burglar who steals many objects from the townspeople of Springfield, including Lisa's saxophone. He is later caught by Homer after Grampa reveals the identity of the burglar but escapes while the town searches for his 'buried treasure'.[39]
  • "Lisa vs. Malibu Stacy"
    • Stacy Lovell (Kathleen Turner) is the inventor of Malibu Stacy. Was fired in 1974 for funneling profits to the Viet Cong and because "her way of thinking wasn't cost-effective". She lives in an exact replica of her Malibu Stacy Dreamhouse in a neighborhood for recluses and once dated an African-American man who looks like a G.I. Joe action figure.[40]
  • "The Boy Who Knew Too Much"
    • Freddie Quimby (Dan Castellaneta) is the nephew of Mayor Quimby who is accused of assaulting a waiter. He reappears in "Trash of the Titans" as one of the people in line at the courthouse to register as a sex offender (along with Patty and Selma, Jimmy the Scumbag from "Lisa's Date with Density," and Moe, who complains about how long the sex offender line always is) and later in "See Homer Run" (with a somewhat altered voice and appearance) as his uncle's press secretary.[42]

Season 6[edit]

  • "Lisa's Rival"
    • Allison Taylor (Winona Ryder), Allison is a first grader who is skipped up into Ms. Hoover's second grade class, and is better than Lisa at everything that makes Lisa special, such as raw intelligence and saxophone skill. At first Lisa is jealous, but they end up being friends.
  • "Itchy & Scratchy Land"
    • Bort, a churlish patron of Itchy & Scratchy Land's gift shop, who coincidentally shares his name with the son of a woman he encounters (as well as innumerable other park enthusiasts, given the wild popularity of the novelty license plates bearing the name on the park's souvenir racks).
  • "Bart's Girlfriend"
    • Jessica Lovejoy (Meryl Streep) is the daughter of Timothy and Helen Lovejoy, and appeared in the episode Bart's Girlfriend. Initially appearing as a calm, sweet girl back from boarding school, she also enjoys causing mischief, but reveals that she is even more of a wild misfit than Bart; she was actually expelled for destroying school property, stealing and starting up fights. Wooing Bart the first day they met, she soon became his girlfriend, but later revealed a manipulative femme fatale side. Though she only had one major role on the show, she appeared many other times in Simpsons Comics such as when she became fat (along with the rest of Springfield Elementary because Nelson stopped bullying).
  • "Homer Badman"
    • Ashley Grant (Pamela Hayden) is a feminist graduate student who babysits Bart, Lisa, and Maggie. She falsely accuses Homer of sexual harassment (albeit unwittingly) after she mistakes his reaching for the candy Venus de Milo stuck to her rear end (complete with drooling) for a sexual attack, prompting a protest and media circus against Homer.[43] Ashley forgives Homer (and vice versa) after she is shown video evidence of his innocence.
  • "Fear of Flying"
    • Dr. Zweig (Anne Bancroft) is a psychologist who tries to help Marge get over her fear of flying. She appears as one of the judges at Marge's insanity hearing in "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Marge".[44] While a competent psychologist, she is somewhat hypocritical as she, as Homer predicted and feared, immediately suspects Homer of responsibility for Marge's problems, despite her statement that she was not there to cast blame on anyone. However, in "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Marge", she and her colleagues are somehow completely ignorant of the ubiquitous concepts of religious belief and prayer, instead interpreting Marge's prayer to God and belief in his omnipresence as symptoms of schizophrenia.
    • Guy Incognito (Dan Castellaneta) is a seemingly upper-class man who is identical in appearance to Homer Simpson. After Homer is banned from Moe's Tavern, Guy Incognito appears at the bar and introduces himself. He is mistaken for a badly disguised Homer and is subsequently beaten up and thrown out of the bar.[44]
  • "Lisa's Wedding"
    • The Fortuneteller (Maggie Roswell), a woman dressed as a gypsy at the local Renaissance Fair who shows Lisa's future in the year 2010 as a graduate student who nearly marries a British man, until she realizes that he hopes to cut Lisa off from her family.[49]

    • Handsome Pete, a dock showman who dances for nickels while playing an accordion. He resembles a deformed Krusty the Klown.
  • "Homer the Smithers"
    • Mrs. Burns, Mr. Burns' 122 year old mother (though there was another woman who was said to be Mr. Burns' mother on season five's "Rosebud," though she could be the same woman, changed only by age and bitterness for her offspring). She is seen briefly when Smithers phones to tell her she has a call waiting from her son, who she refers to as "that improvident lackwit", but Homer accidentally cuts her off before they can speak. According to Smithers, Burns hates talking to her having never forgiven her for an affair with President William Taft.
  • "The Day the Violence Died"
    • Chester J. Lampwick (Kirk Douglas), a homeless man who was the creator of the in-series cartoon character Itchy, which was stolen by Roger Meyers, Sr.[55] Lampwick's original characterization and art for Itchy parody Mickey Mouse's first appearance as Steamboat Willie.

Season 8[edit]

  • "You Only Move Twice"
    • Hank Scorpio (Albert Brooks) is an evil genius and supervillain. He is also the cheerful, friendly owner of Globex Corporation. Scorpio is considered by some to be Albert Brooks' best voice performance on The Simpsons[58] and for this and four other guest performances he was named the greatest guest star in the show's history by IGN.[58] Brooks ad-libbed many of his lines.[59]

He also appears in Simpsons Comics #117, "Sandwiches Are Forever", as well as Simpsons Comics #132, "A Brand New Burns (Part Two)" and Simpsons Comics #66 "Homer's Luv Boat" + "A top secret tour of Globex with Scorpio" and makes a cameo in Simpsons Comic #69 "How Marge got her curtains back".

  • " Treehouse of Horror VII"
    • Hugo Simpson (Nancy Cartwright), is Bart's supposedly evil twin brother who was kept confined in the Simpsons' attic, until it is discovered that Bart was actually the evil twin all along. At the end of the segment, Hugo has rejoined his family and Bart has replaced him in the attic. Hugo Simpson is one of the character costumes for Bart in the video game The Simpsons: Hit & Run.
  • "The Homer They Fall"
    • Lucius Sweet (Paul Winfield) is a boxing manager who is a parody of Don King. He represents World Heavyweight Champion Drederick Tatum, and at one time managed Moe during his boxing career. Sweet also has a small speaking appearance in the season nine episode "The Trouble with Trillions" during the scene where Homer is waiting to get audited.[60]
  • "Burns, Baby Burns"
    • Larry Burns (Rodney Dangerfield) is the long-lost son of Montgomery Burns. He is lazy and low-brow, and so he and Homer become good friends. While he fails to earn Mr Burns' love, he is consoled when he remembers that he has a wife and children, who are likely wondering why he vanished for a week. He later appears in the unemployment office in "Realty Bites".[61]
  • "Bart After Dark"
    • Belle (Tress MacNeille) the owner of the Maison Derrière, a local burlesque house where Martha Quimby met her husband, Mayor Quimby. According to the season eight DVD commentary, there were auditions held for a celebrity to voice Belle, but this was dropped in favor of veteran voice actress Tress MacNeille.[62]
  • "A Milhouse Divided"
    • Starla (Tress MacNeille), Kirk Van Houten's rebound "special lady" immediately following his separation from Luann. Allegedly a temp at KZOG Radio 530, she told Kirk she would help launch his singing career. Instead, she stole his car and ruined his demo tape, entitled, "Can I Borrow A Feeling?"
  • "The Twisted World of Marge Simpson"
    • Frank Ormand (Jack Lemmon) is the founder of the Pretzel Wagon company who convinces Marge to start her own pretzel-selling business. He later dies in a car accident before Marge can start up her business.[66]
  • "The Itchy & Scratchy & Poochie Show"
    • Roy (Hank Azaria), a young adult who briefly lives with the Simpson family. Before his introduction Lisa states "Adding a new character is often a desperate attempt to boost low ratings." At the end of the episode he leaves the Simpson house to live in an apartment with two sexy ladies. Before production began, a Fox executive suggested the staff add a new character to the show, who should come and live with the Simpsons on a permanent basis because it would "liven up the show".[68] The staff rejected the idea. Instead they inserted the one-time character Roy, with no explanation as to who he was or why he was there. Roy's appearance, mannerisms, and role all resemble that of episode-centric Itchy and Scratchy character Poochie. This was as a reference to the executive's proposal (and a meta-joke about long-running shows bringing in annoying characters to boost ratings).[69] Roy was originally conceived for the "Time and Punishment" segment of the season six episode "Treehouse of Horror V", living with the Simpsons in an alternate reality where Homer has an annoying teenage son.[70]
  • "Homer's Phobia"
    • John (John Waters), who is voiced by and modeled after John Waters, is the owner of Cockamamie's Collectibles Shop, an offbeat store filled with various "camp" items. Homer becomes friends with him, but breaks it off when Marge tells Homer that John is gay.[71]
  • "The Canine Mutiny"
    • Laddie (Frank Welker) a finely-bred, pre-trained collie which Bart buys using his credit card. When Bart realizes he misses Santa's Little Helper (after Bart lets Santa's Little Helper get repossessed when Bart has everything he bought with the credit card taken from him), he gives Laddie to the Springfield Police Force.[73]

  • "Homer's Enemy"
    • Frank "Grimey" Grimes (Hank Azaria) was a 35-year-old everyman and consummate professional; his professionalism is repeatedly contrasted with Homer Simpson's idiocy. After several failed attempts to expose Homer's stupidity and irresponsibility, Grimes makes one final attempt by tricking Homer into entering a nuclear power plant design contest intended for kids. After Homer is declared the winner, Grimes snaps, declaring that he can also be as lazy and moronic as Homer, and should be able to get away with it just as Homer does. As he runs amok through the plant, Grimes — declaring that he does not need safety gloves, simply because he is Homer Simpson — grabs two high-voltage wires and is fatally electrocuted. As a final inadvertent insult, Homer sleeps through the funeral and amuses the assembled mourners with his insensitivity, who laugh as Grimes's coffin is lowered. Grimes has been referenced in several later episodes, first in "Natural Born Kissers", where Homer finds an old pamphlet to Grimes's funeral. In "Treehouse of Horror XII", Grimes is one of the faces on the Wailing Wall. His tombstone appears in "Alone Again, Natura-Diddily" and was also kicked by Homer in "My Mother the Carjacker". His son, Frank Grimes Jr., sought to avenge his father's death by killing Homer in "The Great Louse Detective". His tombstone can also be seen in the new opening sequence for the show (during the flash through the town from Marge and Maggie in the car to the front of the Simpsons' house, Ralph Wiggum can be seen playing in the dirt in front of the tombstone).
  • "The Secret War of Lisa Simpson"
    • The Commandant (Willem Dafoe) is the head of Rommelwood Academy, who is wary of Lisa attending military school, but has no qualms over Bart joining (since Rommelwood Academy is an all-boys school).[75]

The Simpsons Movie[edit]

  • Russ Cargill (A. Brooks) – Russell "Russ" Cargill is a businessman and head of the Environmental Protection Agency (abbreviated as EPA). After Homer pollutes Lake Springfield and causes the wildlife to mutate, Cargill presents this information to the President, convincing him to approve a plan to deal with the situation. Cargill lowers a giant dome on top of Springfield, sealing the city off from the rest of the world to prevent the toxic fumes from spreading. Upon hearing of the Simpsons' escape and the citizens' attempts to break the dome, Cargill attempts to have Springfield demolished with a time bomb. Ultimately he tries to kill Homer and Bart with a sawed-off shotgun only to be killed when Maggie drops a large boulder on his head. The deleted scenes on the DVD shows that Cargill was originally going to be an older man in a sweater vest and quiff.
  • President Arnold Schwarzenegger (Harry Shearer) – Schwarzenegger appears to be inept, as he is easily manipulated by Russ Cargill into authorizing the destruction of Springfield. When Cargill warns of the possibility of a public backlash after learning of Springfield becoming a no man's land, Schwarzenegger laments returning to making family comedies.
  • Colin (Tress MacNeille) is a young environmentalist who has moved to Springfield from Ireland. He falls in love with Lisa, and the film ends with them holding hands. Lisa initially suspects that Colin's dad is Bono from U2, since Colin is Irish and states his father is a musician; Colin repeatedly says that his father is not Bono. When asked if he plays instruments, he modestly replies, "Just piano, guitar, trumpet, drums, and bass." During Trappucino, Lisa is forced to leave Colin behind. He writes a song for Lisa, but because she cannot hear him through the dome, he writes the sheet music on the dome's surface. At the end of the film Colin and Lisa go on a date. Note 2
