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]

  • "Bart the Genius"
    • Ms. Mellon (Marcia Wallace), teacher at a school for gifted children that Bart is sent to after cheating on an I.Q Test. She was the only other character Marcia Wallace voiced other than Edna Krabappel.[1]
  • "The Call of the Simpsons"
    • Cowboy Bob (Albert Brooks), owner of Bob's Roundup RVs. He has had non-speaking cameos after this episode, but made a brief speaking appearance in the season sixteen episode "Mobile Homer", and is seen in the episode "Bart Gets an F".[2]
  • "Life on the Fast Lane"
    • Jacques (Albert Brooks) is a bowling instructor who pursued an affair with Marge Simpson. Jacques has since made non-speaking cameos in subsequent episodes, such as "Homer and Apu" (in the Monstro-Mart's line of single, pathetic men who only pay cash for their groceries and do not chat with the clerk) and "Homer's Triple Bypass" (in the waiting room with his bowling ball stuck on one of his fingers). He makes a quick appearance on the bowling team 'The Homewreckers' in "Team Homer" losing to Homer's team the 'Pin Pals'. He is also seen being startled by Bart on his skateboard (along with Bleeding Gums Murphy, Barney, Helen Lovejoy, Moe Syzlak, Chief Wiggum and Apu) in the opening credits of each episode (up until the middle of season 20, when the opening was changed for high-definition TV and the characters on the street were changed). However, he had a small speaking past in the beginning of Homer vs Lisa and the 8th Commandment, as 'Jacques the Adulterer'.
  • "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 Tito Puente's fiery revenge song about Mr. Burns on the season seven premiere episode, "Who Shot Mr. Burns?" (Part 2).
    • 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 due to the family's reputation.

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]
  • "Treehouse of Horror"
  • "One Fish, Two Fish, Blowfish, Blue Fish"
    • Toshiro the Apprentice Chef (Joey Miyashima) The Master Sushi Chef's apprentice. Appears in the line at the Retirement Castle in "Old Money".[8]
    • Master Sushi Chef (Sab Shimono) Sushi chef at a Japanese restaurant who had his apprentice make Homer's fugu as he was busy having sex with Ms. Krabbapel in the backseat of a parked car.[8]
  • "Bart's Dog Gets an F"
    • Emily Winthrop, (Tracey Ullman) a British dog trainer. She was seen at Grandpa's apology in Old Money.[9]
  • "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]
  • "Brush with Greatness"
    • Professor Lombardo, (Jon Lovitz) an art teacher at Springfield Community College. He is quick to compliment almost everything he sees as art. However he does not take praise very well. He reappeared briefly in "The Ziff Who Came to Dinner" as part of a quartet of Simpsons characters who were voiced by former SNL cast member Jon Lovitz.[10]
  • "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 and in season 27 in the episode "friends with benefit".

Season 3[edit]

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.
  • "A Streetcar Named Marge"
  • "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.
  • "Homer's Triple Bypass"
    • Mr. McGreg (Hank Azaria), a victim of a botched surgery by Dr. Nick, 'with a leg for an arm, and an arm for a leg.'[29]
  • "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] The character is based on Harold Hill, the main character from the 1962 film The Music Man.
    • 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]
    • Pepe (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's Barbershop Quartet"
    • Nigel (Harry Shearer) An Englishman and manager of the Be-Sharps. He suggested the band should replace Chief Wiggum with Barney Gumble because the former was "too Village People", and convinced Apu to adopt the stage name Apu de Beau Marchais. He pushed the group to choose a name and go public.[34]
  • "Treehouse of Horror IV"
  • "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]
  • "The Last Temptation of Homer"
  • "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]
  • "Deep Space Homer"
    • Race Banyon (Hank Azaria) is an astronaut who aided Homer and Buzz Aldrin on their space mission.[41]
  • "The Boy Who Knew Too Much"
    • Freddie Quimby (Dan Castellaneta) is the nephew of Mayor Quimby who is accused of assaulting an extremely clumsy French waiter. He was apparently based off John F. Kennedy, Jr ("John-John"). 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. She has since then appeared in non-speaking roles at the school.
  • "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]
  • "Homer the Great"
  • "Homie the Clown"
    • Don Vittorio DiMaggio (Hank Azaria) is Fat Tony's boss and a self-admitted Italian American stereotype. He has since made brief non-speaking cameos in later episodes, particularly in the mob meeting sequence on "Insane Clown Poppy".[46]
  • "Bart vs. Australia"
    • Evan Conover (Phil Hartman) is a U.S. diplomat who sells out the Simpsons to angry Australian officials.[47]
    • Tobias Drundridge (Pamela Hayden) is an Australian boy who accepted a six-hour collect call from Bart. His father Bruno (Hank Azaria) alerts the Prime Minister, and Bart is eventually indicted for fraud by the Australian government.

    • Ballet Teacher (Susan Sarandon), a Russian ballet teacher who encourages Bart to embrace his hidden talent for ballet.[48]
  • "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]

    • Colonel Leslie "Hap" Hapablap (R. Lee Ermey), a colonel at a local Air Force base.[52]

  • "Lisa the Iconoclast"
  • "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 Howard 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.
  • "A Fish Called Selma"
  • "Summer of 4 Ft. 2"
    • Erin (Christina Ricci), Ben (Harry Shearer), Rick (Hank Azaria), and Dean (Tress MacNeille) are Lisa's four friends who live in the town of Little Pwagmattasquarmsettport.[57]
    • An unnamed convenience store clerk appears when Homer tries to buy illegal fireworks. He resembles Apu, but his turban suggests that he may be a Sikh, rather than a Hindu.[citation needed]

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 was supposed to be the main villain of The Simpsons Movie, but the character was replaced with EPA chief Russ Cargill (also voiced by Brooks) by the writers.[citation needed]
    • Scorpio also appears in Simpsons Comics #117 ("Sandwiches Are Forever"), #132 ("A Brand New Burns (Part Two)"), #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 conjoined 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?"
  • "Hurricane Neddy"
    • Dr. Foster (Hank Azaria), Ned's psychologist as a child who treated Ned in the Calmwood Mental Hospital after his breakdown. He appears again at Marge's competency hearing in "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Marge" in a younger form.[63]
  • "El Viaje Misterioso de Nuestro Jomer (The Mysterious Voyage of Homer)"
  • "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 while Marge struggles to compete with "Fleet-a-Pita".[66]
  • "Simpsoncalifragilisticexpiala(Annoyed Grunt)cious"
    • Shary Bobbins (Maggie Roswell) is a magical British nanny modeled after Mary Poppins and hired to care for the Simpson children after Marge is revealed to be going bald from stress. After realizing she can never make The Simpsons functional, Bobbins flies away, and (unknown to the rest of the family) dies when she gets sucked into the jet engine of an airplane.[67] She reappears in a cameo in "Treehouse of Horror XXV", and possibly among a bunch of flying nannies glimpsed in "The Regina Monologues", and on the opening sequence of the 2nd and 6th episodes of the 21st season, "Bart Gets a 'Z'" and "Pranks and Greens".
  • "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]
    • While Springfield Elementary students are watching a potential cartoon series, a muscular man in a Speedo capriciously walks onto the screen. Nelson Muntz made it seem like Milhouse van Houten enjoyed seeing him. This upset Milhouse. An executive said, "That one kid seemed to love Speedo Man." The character may have been based upon the He-Man cartoon character.[1]
  • "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]
  • "Homer vs. the Eighteenth Amendment"
    • Rex Banner (Dave Thomas) is a U.S. Treasury officer in Washington, D.C. briefly sent to Springfield to uphold prohibition, and to replace Chief Wiggum as Chief of Police. He was based on Eliot Ness, the Treasury agent who led the famous Prohibition-enforcement team "The Untouchables".[72] He is removed from the situation when the apparently re-appointed Chief Wiggum has him shot out of the punishment catapult set up for Homer, after Banner absentmindedly steps onto it during a speech.
  • "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 Simpsons Spin-Off Showcase"
    • Big Daddy (Gailard Sartain) is a New Orleans-based criminal who steals the Louisiana governor's mansion and kidnaps Ralph Wiggum.[74] He is set up as the primary antagonist of the Chief Wiggum spinoff, whom Wiggum expects to face "each and every week".
  • "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]
