When she was eight, Abernathy wanted to be a doctor and a lawyer because she believed a woman can be whatever she wants to be if she just sets her mind to it.
At 16, she began studying for law school, and by 24 she earned a law degree from Yale Law School and a medical degree from Harvard Medical School.
Sadly, eight years later when she turned 32, Abernathy suffered from psychological exhaustion, became an alcoholic, and sought solace in her pet cat.
In the episode " Eeny Teeny Maya Moe ", Abernathy reveals that she once owned a cat with Moe Szyslak after he says that there "Is a much creepier guy right next to me.
She yells "You know I'm a woman! She is also seen in " The Blue and the Gray " flirting and swapping animals with another mentally ill person carrying dogs, who has been affectionately nicknamed 'Crazy Dog Man'.
After Marge helps her clean up her house, she begins speaking normally and wearing proper clothing. Later, in an attempt to fix Marge's new hoarding problem, Abernathy reverts to her crazy self, reclaiming all of the hoarded junk and calling her cats back to her.
In the episode " Monty Burns' Fleeing Circus ", Abernathy shows she has an opera-quality singing voice. Crusher also referred to as Joey and Lowblow are a pair of stereotypical henchmen often found in the employment of Montgomery Burns as he prefers the hands-on touch you only get with hired goons.
Crusher's first appearance was in the second-season episode " Blood Feud " where he is seen escorting Homer off the premises of the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant.
The two seem to be on first name terms as Homer calls him Joey. Their first appearance together was in the episode " Last Exit to Springfield " when the two of them kidnap Homer and take him to Burns Manor.
They introduce themselves as "hired goons" The pair rarely had speaking roles and were often used as Mr Burns' henchmen and the henchmen for The Blue-Haired Lawyer as seen in the beginning of "Lisa the Beauty Queen" and several scenes in "Lady Bouvier's Lover".
He first appeared in the episode " Bart's Comet " as a member of "the Super Friends". He has since had speaking parts in several episodes.
He is usually seen with his fellow nerd Martin Prince. Database is a common target for Nelson , Dolph , Jimbo and Kearney. Database is part of the group of boys who invade Shelbyville in " Lemon of Troy ".
Database is known for his annoying, nerdy voice which is supplied by Nancy Cartwright. Database's father is shown in " Lemon of Troy ", although he utters no dialogue and is only in the background and has not appeared since that episode.
Writer John Swartzwelder named Shutton after a friend of his. Since then, his roles have become less relevant and have been reduced to short appearances.
According to " Who Shot Mr. Growing Up Springfield is his most notable documentary. It follows the lives of the inhabitants of Springfield, starting when they were in third grade and continuing every eight years.
The Desmond character appears to be loosely based on British director Michael Apted , who is known for his Up Series of documentaries following groups of individuals as they age.
Dewey Largo , voiced by Harry Shearer , is the music teacher , whom Lisa credited with proving that any piece of music could have the soul sucked out of it.
Like most of the staff of Springfield Elementary, Largo has long since lost all passion for his job as conductor, and cares little for creativity or music anymore.
He is always seen in the opening sequence, teaching his class and throwing Lisa out of his band class when she plays a tune on her saxophone.
His last name, Largo , is also an Italian word for a slow, broad, musical tempo ,  likely a reference to the fact that he can make any piece of music uninteresting.
He is a lover of the music of John Philip Sousa , and is incredulous when Lisa suggests the school band plays something different. He has not played a large role in the series, but was originally intended to be an uptight foil for Lisa and her non-conformist ways.
After the first few seasons, Mr. Largo was rarely seen. However, he has since resurfaced as a recurring character in the seventeenth season, making appearances in several episodes after.
In the episode " Homer's Paternity Coot ," it is revealed that Largo was accepted to the Juilliard School , but never got the letter as it was frozen atop Mount Springfield.
He ended up at Springfield Elementary instead. In season 22's Elementary School Musical , after attending a performing arts camp, Lisa is warned by Mr Largo that he also attended one as a child, and that they just "fill your head with sugarcandy dreams that can't come true.
The 22nd-season episode " Flaming Moe " confirmed that Largo is gay and in a relationship with an older man, also named Dewey.
Nick mistakenly makes Mr Largo shorter, instead of Moe. It is implied Dr. Nick was about to give Moe the sex-change operation that was originally meant for Largo, as he is heard to cry: "I look nothing like Julie Newmar!
My Fair Laddy reveals that he is considered the second least important employee of the school after Willie, as he is demoted to groundskeeper after Willie leaves.
Stu was introduced as the punchline to a joke in " Two Bad Neighbors ". In a rummage sale , Homer attempts to sell a jacket on which he had once tried to write "Disco Stud" in rhinestones , but having made the letters too big he did not have room for the final "d".
After Marge remarks that nobody would ever want to buy a jacket that read "Disco Stu", another customer recommends it to Stu, but Stu replies, "Disco Stu doesn't advertise.
Stu's speech pattern is similar to that of Duffman , also voiced by Hank Azaria ; he speaks in the third person , often referring to himself as "Disco Stu" emphasizing "Stu" and then pausing before saying anything else; whatever follows usually rhymes with "Stu".
According to " How I Spent My Strummer Vacation ", Stu actually is aware disco is dead, does not like disco music at all, and worries that his personality may make him a "one-note guy".
He stated he had already used the device "To cure another Springfielder of his particular obsession" at which point Stu walks into the frame in khakis and a collared shirt saying "Normal Stu likes normal things.
She is then seen arriving arm-in-arm with Krusty the Clown. In the episode " Springfield Up ", it is revealed that in his younger years, he had a budding career as a sea captain, going by the name of "Nautical Stu", and only finds the joy of disco music when Marge puts some on while taking his picture for his captain's license.
Stu was originally to be voiced by repeat guest star Phil Hartman. However, when the animators remodeled the character, Hartman was not available to dub the voice and so Hank Azaria took over the role.
Doctor Colossus , voiced by Hank Azaria , is a supervillain and mad scientist who resides in Springfield. He has light blue skin and wears a white laboratory coat , gloves and goggles.
Doctor Colossus is a minor character and usually only appears in the background. The character first appeared in the episode " Lisa vs.
Malibu Stacy ". Dolph is recognized by his asymmetrical haircut which covers one eye; he wears cutoff shorts and basketball shoes.
He is a year-old. Drederick Tatum voiced by Hank Azaria has appeared in several episodes. He is a professional boxer and the reigning world heavyweight champion.
He features prominently in the episode " The Homer They Fall ", in which Homer takes up boxing and is lined up as an opponent for Tatum, soon to be released from prison.
The fight proves one-sided, and Homer is rescued by Moe just as he is about to be knocked unconscious by Tatum. Tatum grew up in Springfield, but in " Flaming Moe's " he calls the city "a dump" and says "if you ever see me back there, you know I really [bleeped expletive] up bad.
The Olympic gold medalist , he first became world champion after defeating Watson in the heavily promoted "Bout to Knock the Other Guy Out", a fight Homer and his friends watched on his illegal cable hookup.
He was so feared inside prison, he could stop riots just by telling the rioters to "shut up". Tatum also appears in " Bye Bye Nerdie ".
In which, Lisa swabs him with nerd sweat, which forces Nelson Muntz to involuntarily get up and start punching Tatum and give him a wedgie , to little effect.
A sobbing Nelson tries to apologize but Tatum rolls up his sleeves and declares "you leave me little recourse".
Tatum is a parody of Mike Tyson , with a high-pitched lisping voice, a menacing demeanor, a criminal record , financial problems, and a tendency to make pseudo-intellectual comments like "I insist that you desist" and "your behavior is unconscionable".
He also has an unscrupulous manager named Lucius Sweet, who closely resembles Tyson's promoter and manager Don King. King and Tyson were asked to appear in the episode but declined.
Paul Winfield , who played King in a Tyson biopic , took the role instead. Nicholas Riviera, M. Nick is an inept physician voiced by Hank Azaria.
Upon entering a scene, Dr. Nick's catchphrase is "Hi, everybody! He frequently appears on infomercials , pitching all sorts of bizarre medical offers or endorsing dubious devices, and often turns his operations into TV spectacles.
The design of Dr. Nichopoulos , a former physician best known for over-prescribing prescription drugs to Elvis Presley and contributing to his death from cardiac arrest in Nick 23rd on their list of the "Top 25 Simpsons Peripheral Characters".
It concluded that Riviera was a better role model for physicians. Barry Duffman , better known as Duffman and voiced by Hank Azaria , is a recurring character who, according to Chris Turner , "embodies all the self-importance and over-statement of contemporary marketing.
Oh, ja! In the season 17 episode " Marge and Homer Turn a Couple Play ", it was revealed there were two other Duffmen working but it is kept a secret so as not to disillusion children.
Howard K. Duffman's first appearance was in the ninth-season episode " The City of New York vs. Homer Simpson " in There are also international, culture-specific versions of Duffman for the overseas markets.
Duffmensch , the German version of Duffman, wears a blue pickelhaube helmet and blue spandex lederhosen with a dark leather waistbelt with beer-can holders that look like ammunition pouches.
He uses the German language slogan Oh Ja! They are still played by the American Duffman and have his mannerisms. Eddie , voiced by Harry Shearer ,  is one of the Springfield police officers.
He is not as smart as Lou. Thanksgiving ", Eddie was animated to Lou's voice and Lou was animated to Eddie's. In early episodes, Miss Hoover seemed proud to have a student as bright as Lisa in her class.
However, in later seasons it seems she has been worn down by her years in the public school system and, in " Lisa Gets an "A" ", implies that she frequently drinks during lunch.
In the episode " Lisa's Substitute ", she thought she had lyme disease. She is very apathetic and bored with her job. She is often seen smoking even while teaching, once even under a "No Smoking" sign in the assembly hall.
Her desperate attempts to regain her stability include rushing out of class to recite "Calm blue ocean, calm blue ocean" with her eyes closed, getting into her car and driving off on two occasions, and even letting Ralph teach the class after she was granted tenure and therefore free to do almost anything she wants.
In the series, Fallout Boy first appears in a s Radioactive Man serial film shown at a comic book convention in the episode " Three Men and a Comic Book ".
However, unlike many Simpsons characters, he has only made a handful of appearances since. While Radioactive Man is a broad parody of many superheroes, most obviously containing elements of Batman and Superman and the comic incorporates an origin story similar to Marvel 's Hulk , among others, Fallout Boy is mainly a parody of Robin with his costume, references as being the 'young ward' of Radioactive Man, and his younger age and sidekick status with elements of Spider-Man his fictional comic book origin, for example.
His catchphrase is "Jiminy Jillickers! Fallout Boy also appears in a real-life comic book titled Radioactive Man , published by Bongo Comics a comic created in part by Matt Groening , the creator of The Simpsons.
They live in Zenith City. Rod is a high school nerd living with his aunt, Aunt June. Fallout Boy was an average book worm, until one day, he was at a Radioactive demonstration, where he met up with Claude Kane.
A tall piece of machinery fell towards them. Claude grabbed Rod and jumped over the rail, Claude holding onto the machine.
The machine came to life, and as the ray passed through Claude, who became Radioactive Man, it hit Rod. Rod then got a pint-sized version of Radioactive Man's powers and became Fallout Boy.
Rock band Fall Out Boy is named after this character. She first appears in the season 17 episode " The Italian Bob ", when Sideshow Bob moved to Italy to get away from Bart for a fresh start.
He became the mayor of a small Tuscan village and married Francesca, with whom he had a son called Gino , although Sideshow Bob never told her, or indeed anyone about his murderous past.
However, when the Simpsons visited Italy, Lisa got drunk at a feast and told the whole town of the things he had done. After being thrown out of his village, Bob swore a vendetta against the Simpsons, which Francesca encouraged, saying they brought dishonor to the whole family.
She helped her husband try and fail to kill them at the Colosseum. Her second appearance comes in the season 19 episode " Funeral for a Fiend " voiced by Tress MacNeille , in which Sideshow Bob fakes his own death in a convoluted plot to kill Bart.
Frank Grimes voiced by Hank Azaria , occasionally referred to as "Grimey" much to his displeasure, was a year-old everyman and consummate professional who had struggled through a lifetime of hardship.
Grimes makes his only canonical appearance in the series in " Homer's Enemy " in which he is a new employee at the power plant. Throughout the episode, Grimes's professionalism is repeatedly contrasted with Homer Simpson 's idiocy, gluttony, and laziness, making Grimes increasingly frustrated and angry with Homer.
True to the name of the episode, Grimes eventually declares Homer his enemy after his co-worker gets him into serious trouble with his new boss Mr.
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, 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.
His son, Frank Grimes Jr. However, he does not appear to be very useful to his colleagues in criminal activity due to his uncontrollable habit of squealing he claims that "it makes [him] feel big" , even squealing on himself one time.
On several occasions, the mob has attempted to kill him for his squealing, though they have repeatedly been unsuccessful.
Frankie first appeared in the episode " Insane Clown Poppy " where his squealing habits are introduced after he squeals on himself for squealing.
Gil Gunderson , a. Even so, the writers like to write Gil with "a little bit of the old sparkle" left in him. Since the retirement of the character Lionel Hutz after voice actor Phil Hartman 's death , Gil has been working as the Simpsons' lawyer in later episodes, though he has appeared in that role much less frequently than Lionel did most scenes where one of the Simpsons is in court have either made their attorney an anonymous figure or simply ignored him or her.
Gil's work history includes many unsuccessful sales jobs, a position where he committed theft and was busted by the IRS for it, another job where he lost the entire company payroll at a Las Vegas casino, and a stint when he was hired by the Springfield Police Department after he was able to free Chief Wiggum after he handcuffed himself to his desk.
He always gets fired, often for just being incompetent but sometimes out of bad luck he lost his job at Costington's when he refused to take back a gift he had sold to Lisa so that the CEO's granddaughter could have it, and Marge fires him from her Mother Hubbard's Sandwich Shop for no real reason.
His way of selling is disastrous, as he is usually very unconfident, naturally bumbling, and tends to come off as needy, especially as he almost always refers to himself in the third person, as "Ol' Gil".
In " Natural Born Kissers " it was mentioned that Gil lives in a balloon, and he is seen in "Rise of the Guardians" noting that he resides in the city's sewer system.
He has the same bizarre hair as his father and his paternal grandmother, as well as the same hatred for Bart Simpson. He first appears in the season 17 episode " The Italian Bob ", when Sideshow Bob moved to Italy to start a new life, without anyone knowing, not even his own family, about his murderous history.
That is, until Lisa became drunk at a feast and told the whole town everything, even though the Simpson family had promised not to mention anything since Bob fixed their car.
The Simpsons flee the town, with Gino and his parents in hot pursuit. When they finally corner the Simpsons at the Colosseum , Gino is seen to be extremely agile and adept with a knife, as well as having a taste for violence; so much so, in fact, that Bob is heard to whisper to Francesca: "I don't want to brag, but he's evil at an eighth-grade level.
Gino makes his second appearance in the season 19 episode " Funeral for a Fiend ", where it is mentioned that after leaving Italy, he and his parents toured around London for a while before sneaking into America on a train.
He, and all of the other members of Bob's family played a part in a complicated plan to finish off Bart for good.
However, they were foiled by Lisa Simpson and were arrested by Chief Wiggum. She is a meter maid.
She ends up leaving him to return to her ex-boyfriend Snake. She appears once again in " Sex, Pies and Idiot Scrapes ", where she is now pregnant.
Then, in " Wedding For Disaster ", they apparently got married. He also appears in the opening sequence.
He is portrayed in the traditional depiction of the Abrahamic God : a gray-haired man in a white robe with a booming voice.
In most episodes, only His beard is seen. One of God's distinctive features is that He and Jesus are the only two The Simpsons characters to have been drawn with five fingers on each hand and five toes on each foot.
Grady is voiced by Scott Thompson. He is Julio 's lover. In " Three Gays of the Condo ", Marge finds a note that says she wanted to dump Homer before they get married.
This upsets Homer and he finds a new place to live. Julio and Grady needed a third person in the apartment. He agrees to stay with them. Later, Homer loves Marge again; he moves out.
Before Homer moved out, it is revealed Grady loves Homer. Homer runs away saying "I will only hurt you! Greta Wolfcastle , voiced by Reese Witherspoon , is the daughter of action movie star Rainier Wolfcastle.
He incidentally appears in many later episodes, attending Lady Gaga 's concert in Lisa Goes Gaga , in a video game in White Christmas Blues , he does the Homer Shake, and he was mentioned by Matt Selman in the April 15, TV Guide article promoting Brick Like Me in which he jokes that he will be one of the few Simpsons characters to not be portrayed in Lego form during the episode.
Nahasapeemapetilons ", and " Jazzy and the Pussycats ". In "Jazzy and the Pussycats", they are seen at Amber Simpson 's funeral.
In video game The Simpsons Game , it is revealed they performed at an aquarium. Hans Moleman , voiced by Dan Castellaneta , is the retconned name of an earlier character named "Ralph Melish".
He was renamed when a writer noticed he looked like a mole man. He has cataracts and is almost entirely blind,  which has severely impaired his reading ability and has led to repeated revokings of his driver's license.
He carries a cane to walk with. Although he appears to be elderly, in fact, Hans Moleman claims to be 31 years old, and that "drinking has ruined [his] life".
His character is based on a character created by Tex Avery , Droopy. Like many recurring characters, Hans Moleman has had a wide variety of careers over the course of the series.
Hans Moleman's appearances usually come in the form of a running gag where he is killed by various accidents, yet inexplicably returns unharmed in subsequent episodes.
Burns , executed via the electric chair, thrown out of a window, eaten by alligators, sucked up by roombas , buried alive, smothered by a Rover , killed by the Grim Reaper 's touch of death, drowned to death after driving his truck off a broken bridge, has had his car explode after bumping into a tree, and has been crushed by various different objects on several occasions.
In The Simpsons Movie , Homer's car runs him over. He has also suffered many non-fatal accidents such as getting hit in the groin by a football during his indie film and crashing his car into the Planet Hype restaurant.
Hank Scorpio is a one-time character portrayed by Albert Brooks. He is a super villain that used to be Homer's boss when they moved to Cypress Creek in the second episode of season 8 , You Only Move Twice.
He is the owner of Globex Corporation and his office is a literal volcano. The Happy Little Elves are a parody of The Smurfs , who appeared more often in the show's earlier episodes, e.
They are a favorite of Lisa and Maggie Simpson. In more current episodes, they appear as wall decorations in Maggie's and Lisa's rooms. They were also seen in The Simpsons Ride.
Lovejoy 's judgmental and gossipy wife, and the mother of Jessica Lovejoy. She introduced herself in the episode " Life on the Fast Lane " as "the gossipy wife of the minister".
Her catchphrase is "What about the children?! Won't somebody please think of the children!? In " Wedding for Disaster ", the Parson implies Helen is a transgender woman who used to be named Harold Schwartzbaum.
In " E Pluribus Wiggum ", it is revealed that Helen is a Republican she is seen at the Springfield Republican meeting, which takes place in a scary castle atop a hill.
Lovejoy is Lisa's godmother. In reply to a question by Bart, he insinuates that he lost his arm when he stuck it out the window of a school bus.
In the episode " To Cur with Love ", he is seen in a flashback losing his arm hitchhiking when he is sideswiped by an animal control van. A brilliant military tactician, Herman was instrumental in Bart's victory in water balloon combat against Nelson and in the negotiation of the peace treaty between the two combatants in " Bart the General ", which is his first and most significant appearance.
Herman is often portrayed as a crook, having sold Abraham Simpson a fez by falsely claiming it was previously owned by Napoleon ; Herman then advertised Abe's old hat as "the hat McKinley was shot in".
He also tried to sell counterfeit jeans out of the Simpsons' garage, but was foiled by Marge Simpson in " The Springfield Connection ".
He once captured Chief Wiggum and Snake and held them hostage, but was accidentally knocked unconscious by Milhouse with a medieval mace, rescuing them.
He is always seen as a somewhat dangerous character, dressing in military fatigues, and speaking in a slow, gravelly voice he is also often seen with an unlit cigarette in his mouth.
In the opening credits of a later episode the billboard reads, 'Herman's Military Antiques and guns '. It is revealed and mentioned at various points that he keeps a loaded shotgun under the counter, and has various other firearms at his disposal.
Harry Shearer does an impression of George H. Bush for the voice. However, the second joke, involving Herman having stuck his arm in a ball return at a bowling alley, got cut, and the writers never pursued the idea until " To Cur with Love ".
He is a former worker at the Nuclear Plant who was forced to retire with a lavish retirement party. He tries to get out of it by saying his job was all he had, since he never married and his dog died, but Mr.
Burns' hired goons threw him out anyway. He is seen in " Marge in Chains " at the court as the foreman of Marge's trial.
He is later seen in " Simpson Tide " mopping the floor and informs Homer he is off the hook when all the Naval Judges leave, having been indicted in various scandals.
He possibly lives in the Retirement Castle and is rarely seen in the series. His first appearance is in " Homer the Heretic ", when he is left in charge of the Kwik-E-Mart alone, he pulls out a gun, scaring Jimbo, Kearney and Dolph.
Janey first appeared in " Moaning Lisa " and is Lisa's closest friend. She has been at Lisa's sleepovers , and Lisa is seen watching cartoons at her house on numerous occasions.
Though she is sometimes seen spending time with Lisa, other times she teases her along with the other children. She is not portrayed as being nearly as intelligent or nerdy as Lisa.
Janey may have had a crush on Milhouse Van Houten , who has a crush on Lisa. She enjoys reading babysitting books and hates ice cream.
Jasper Beardly voiced by Harry Shearer  is one of the older residents of Springfield , often portrayed as Abraham Simpson 's best friend.
His most distinguishing features are his ultra-low, gravelly voice and very long and hard beard. Jasper made his first appearance in " Homer's Odyssey ".
He stayed in Springfield to play in the local women's baseball league, along with his friend Abe, who was also avoiding the war but was exposed during a game.
In a deleted scene, it was shown that Jasper was the town pastor, prior to Reverend Lovejoy. He briefly served as substitute teacher of Lisa's class during which time he confiscated everything made of tin, got his beard caught in a pencil sharpener and threatened paddling for minor infractions such as looking out the window or talking out of turn.
In the subplot of the season nine episode, " Lisa the Simpson ", Jasper put himself in crude "suspended animation" in the Kwik-E-Mart 's freezer, and under advice from Dr.
Nick, Apu kept him frozen. When Jasper's frozen form became popular with customers, Apu started exploiting the spectacle, and transformed the Kwik-E-Mart into a special interest store dealing with weird items, or perfectly ordinary ones which had been made out to be abnormal, called the Freak-E-Mart.
Jasper was accidentally unfrozen, and stepped out into what he thought was a future world, just as Apu was considering selling him to the Rich Texan.
In " A Star is Burns ", he came to Springfield to be a judge during the film festival. He also apparently became a regular patron to Moe's Tavern.
The Critic was later canceled. Jebediah Obadiah Zachariah Jedediah Springfield a. Hans Sprungfeld is the founder of the town of Springfield.
He is voiced by Harry Shearer. It was then that Manhattan went on to found the rival town of Shelbyville , taking half of the settlers with him.
Springfield had many famous quotations, such as "A noble spirit embiggens the smallest man". He also wears a coonskin cap.
The Springfield Marathon commemorates an occasion on which he ran across six states in order to avoid his creditors. In " The Telltale Head ", Bart beheaded the statue, thinking that this would make him more popular.
In reality, the town became depressed and angry, leaving Bart to endure " The Tell-Tale Heart "-style guilt before replacing it. This episode is referenced in multiple Simpsons video games such as The Simpsons: Bart vs.
Many Jebediah legends have been debunked during the run of the series. For instance, "The Telltale Head" repeatedly refers to Jebediah killing a bear with his bare hands, but on the news, Kent Brockman reveals that recent historical evidence suggests the bear actually killed Jebediah.
On an expedition to Springfield's historic "Fort Springfield", Bart uncovers other inconsistencies in the Jebediah legend, such as that he fought at Fort Ticonderoga the same day as the first Whacking Day.
Most of Springfield's biography is revealed in the episode " Lisa the Iconoclast ", wherein Lisa Simpson discovers Jebediah Springfield's biggest secret: he was formerly a bloodthirsty pirate named Hans Sprungfeld, who once brawled with George Washington and lost after Washington crushed Sprungfeld's genitals in one of his sets of iron false teeth.
Sprungfeld fled and changed his name in to hide his identity. He was well known for his "silver tongue" literally; a metal prosthetic tongue, his original tongue having been bitten off by a Turkish pirate in a grog house fight.
Before he died of diphtheria , he wrote his confession on a scrap of canvas that he hid in a fife. The canvas scrap formed the "missing piece" of the famously incomplete Gilbert Stuart portrait of George Washington ; Sprungfeld picked it up during a fight against Washington which occurred while the latter was having his portrait painted.
Lisa decides not to reveal this secret to the people of Springfield, seeing that the myth of Jebediah has brought out the good in everyone and that the true story will cause them to lose hope and morale within themselves.
Corky James " Jimbo " Jones , voiced by Pamela Hayden  and originally by Tress MacNeille in his first appearance in the first season episode " The Telltale Head "  is a bully at Springfield Elementary who wears a purple knit cap and a black T-shirt emblazoned with a menacing skull.
He is a sixth-grader and is often seen hanging out with Dolph , Kearney , and sometimes Nelson. He is acknowledged as the leader of the gang of bullies in Nelson's absence.
He enjoys intimidating his schoolmates and shoplifting. It is hinted that he comes from a well-off family, most notably in season six's " The PTA Disbands " when—with the school closed for a teacher's strike —he and his mother watch soap operas and sip tea together in a well-furnished living room.
In season four's " New Kid on the Block ", he briefly dates Laura Powers until she leaves him for crying in front of Moe after Bart exposed his true personality by prank-calling him.
In one episode , it is revealed that he is bald on top, with hair around it. Jimbo's other known aliases are Jamesbo, Dr.
J and Hector Gutierrez. In season eighteen's " 24 Minutes " it is revealed that his mother's name is Carol. Jimbo is a portmanteau nickname for executive producer James L.
Tougher on Dorks". He says very little, for fear of being accused of being a "squealer", but his reticence is so extreme it backfires, becoming unhelpful to everyone, including Fat Tony and Johnny himself.
When asked where he is injured, he says "I ain't sayin' nuthin'! He was first seen in " Selma's Choice ".
Gladys gives Jub-Jub to Jacqueline Bouvier , who is highly unattached to him. As a result, she later passes him on to Selma. Selma once said that Jub-Jub will eat her remains after she dies.
There is, however, a Jubjub bird in " The Hunting of the Snark ". Judge Constance Harm , voiced by repeat guest star actress Jane Kaczmarek , is a harsh, unforgiving disciplinarian.
Her name is a play on "constant harm". The character is a parody of Judge Judy Sheindlin. Although Judge Snyder resolves court cases, Judge Harm has mainly been used for handing down negative verdicts, such as sentencing a family member to prison.
Judge Roy Snyder , voiced by Harry Shearer ,  is a Springfield judge known for his lenient punishments and somewhat unorthodox rulings as in the episode " Sweets and Sour Marge ", when he bans sugar from Springfield.
The character was originally named "Judge Moulton", but show runners Bill Oakley and Josh Weinstein did not know that, and called him "Snyder".
His skin is currently brown. Julius Hibbert, M. Hibbert is noticeably less dysfunctional than just about everyone else on the show, though he does have a bizarre tendency to chuckle at inappropriate moments.
It is mentioned in " Make Room for Lisa ", that "Before I learned to chuckle mindlessly, I was headed to an early grave.
For example, when Maggie saved Homer from drowning, he attributed it to common cases of superhuman strength in children whose parents' lives are in danger.
In a Treehouse of Horror episode, Dr. Hibbert discusses the possibility of Bart being a "genetic chosen one" who can cure a zombie apocalypse over the phone with the Simpsons while under siege from the aforementioned zombies.
Though he manages to dispatch several with various medical equipment taking down a nurse with an expertly-thrown syringe to the forehead , he is eventually overwhelmed and bitten after requesting that the Simpsons tell his wife that he loves her if they should encounter her.
There are hints though, that Dr. Hibbert is not above dubious medical practices. After Marge talks him out of buying an unsuitable house, he suggests repaying her with black-market prescriptions.
Hibbert covered for himself against Marge's horrified reaction by saying that if she had replied any other way, she would be sent to prison, claiming that it was "just a test".
Despite his seemingly honest and good-hearted personality, there is evidence that he is, at heart, a committed mercenary. In " Bye Bye Nerdie ", after Homer's baby-proofing business eliminates child injuries in Springfield, Hibbert complains that he is behind in his boat payments because of this.
Hibbert also freely wears fur coats, believing that while fur itself may not be murder, "paying for it sure is! Hibbert is often seen in flashbacks for example, Lisa's birth, or Bart's accidents as a toddler , and each time has a different hairstyle afro , dreadlocks , Mr.
T -style Mohawk , etc. Hibbert is married; he and his wife Bernice have at least three children, two boys and a girl. When his entire family is seen together, they appear to be a spoof of The Cosby Show.
Bernice is known to be something of a heavy drinker; this has been joked about on at least one occasion in " Homer vs. Despite apparent marriage problems, Dr.
Hibbert still requests that the Simpsons tell Bernice that he loves her during a zombie apocalypse, though Homer misinterprets the message and resolves to just give her a high-five.
In the sixth season episode " 'Round Springfield ", it is implied that he and Bleeding Gums Murphy are long-lost brothers; Hibbert says he has a long-lost brother who is a jazz musician and Murphy says he has a brother who is a doctor that chuckles at inappropriate times, but somehow the two do not put these clues together.
However, Murphy later dies, so it will never be known for certain if they are brothers or not. Hibbert lives next door to Police Chief Wiggum. In writers Jay Kogen and Wallace Wolodarsky 's original script for " Bart the Daredevil ", Hibbert was a woman, named "Julia Hibbert", who they named after comedic actress Julia Sweeney Hibbert was her married last name at the time.
Hibbert a parody of Bill Cosby 's character Dr. Cliff Huxtable. Hibbert is usually shown wearing sweaters when not on duty, a reference to Huxtable.
Hibbert laughs inappropriately, at pretty much everything. He is one of the few competent characters in the show, and was originally shown as being sympathetic to his patients' conditions, but that was eventually changed to him being less caring about his patients.
Hibbert and Dr. Nick Riviera , a quack physician often used by The Simpsons as an alternative source of medical advice. While Hibbert is praised for his sense of humor and quality of care, it concludes that Nick is a better role model for physicians; Hibbert is a paternalistic and wasteful physician, unlike Nick, who strives to cut costs and does his best to avoid the coroner.
Bones McCoy of Star Trek as a role model, "TV's only true physician" and "someone who has broken free from the yoke of ethics and practises the art and science of medicine beyond the stultifying opposition of paternalism and autonomy.
A free and independent thinker and, indeed, someone even beyond role models". In the twelfth season episode " Trilogy of Error ", in which Marge accidentally severs Homer's thumb, she expresses disappointment with how Hibbert handles Homer's plight and attempts to go to Riviera instead.
This man first appears in " When Flanders Failed " when he goes to the Leftorium to get his parking validated because it is the only store that does it without requiring a purchase.
Ned Flanders says he is "right as rain, or, as we say around here, left as rain" but the man bluntly responds "Just stamp the ticket".
His next appearance is in " Homer Alone ", when the Squeaky Voiced Teen tries to hand him a flyer he brushes him off by saying "Don't touch me".
In a later episode, " Mr. He reappears again in " Homer's Barbershop Quartet ", at the Springfield Swap Meet, he derides Marge 's "cool" wishbone necklaces, stating he doubted his "son or daughter is that stupid".
The character also appears in the episodes " Homer Loves Flanders " who tells Homer that, if Homer actually went to work for eight days instead of camping out outside the ticket window for football tickets, he would have earned enough to get his tickets from a scalper , " Homer and Apu " as one of the angry customers in the beginning of the episode , " Bart of Darkness " in which he punched a hippie for singing " Sunshine on My Shoulders " during a town-wide heat wave and " Grampa vs.
Sexual Inadequacy " in which he punches Homer in the face for questioning his ability to sexually satisfy his wife. In Simpson Tide he has his biggest appearance as the Naval Reserve recruiter who begs Homer not to read the "Are you a homosexual?

He also is a photographer and takes photos of Marge and her friends. He is seen attending First Church of Springfield.
In "The Burns Cage" he starts dating Smithers , but breaks up with him after realizing that Smithers is still in love with Mr. Loren Pryor , voiced by Harry Shearer , is the school psychologist.
He is based on an early design for Seymour Skinner , and first appears in " Bart the Genius " where he decides to send Bart to a school for gifted children after Bart cheats on a test.
Bart later approaches him to request returning to Springfield Elementary. In " Bart Gets an F ", he tells him that if Bart does not shape up he may have to repeat the fourth grade.
He appears again, discussing Bart's problems at school and Lisa's special gift in a flashback sequence of " Lisa's Sax ".
In this episode he also inadvertently reveals that Milhouse Van Houten possesses "flamboyantly homosexual" tendencies. Pryor does not appear again for several years until the episode " See Homer Run ", in which he tells Lisa that she is going through a developmental condition.
Jon Vitti named the character for his prying into the children's lives. He is a 5th grader and has a buzz cut , and wears a torn white T-shirt, blue shorts, and studded wristbands.
Although he looks and sounds to be around Jimbo and Dolph 's age, Kearney is actually older a latter-day episode revealed that Kearney is 19 years old, though, according to his voice actress, Nancy Cartwright, Kearney is actually He is the only Springfield Elementary School student who remembers the Watergate Scandal and the Bicentennial according to Principal Skinner , was in Otto the bus driver's third-grade class according to Otto , owns a car even though he rode the school bus on "A Milhouse Divided", "The Mook, the Chef, the Wife, and Her Homer", and "How the Test Was Won" , regularly shaves , has custody of a child from a divorce , is old enough to vote in a general U.
In the same episode, it is revealed that he is on the church council of the First Church of Springfield and is "a teenager and the parent of a teenager" implying that the son he introduced in "A Milhouse Divided" may also be older than his outward appearance, though past episodes also imply that Kearney is not a teenager.
Kearney's last name Zzyzwicz was revealed in a computer file in season 18's " 24 Minutes ". Prior to that episode, Kearney's surname was never mentioned.
Kearney's newly revealed last name implies that he may be of Polish descent, or may also be inspired by the town of Zzyzx.
In " Bart Gets a 'Z' ", he can be seen sitting in the back row of Bart's classroom, implying Kearney is a fourth grader.
Kearney Zzyzwicz Jr. He is the son of Kearney. He first appeared in the school bus when Kearney was mentioning his divorce.
He is also seen building a sand castle and sitting on Gil's lap, who was dressed as Santa Claus. He later appeared in the town square in the season 26 episode Covercraft.
He is the father of Milhouse , and the remarried husband of Luann Van Houten. He is friends with Homer Simpson. Kirk bears a striking resemblance to his wife, and wears glasses just like her and their son.
He first appeared in the season 3 episode " Bart's Friend Falls in Love ", but it would not be until season eight's " A Milhouse Divided " that Kirk was portrayed as a stereotypical middle-aged male loser and deadbeat dad.
Much of his character revolves around his extreme emotional depression after his divorce from his wife Luann.
Luann got custody of Milhouse when they divorced, but Kirk has visiting rights and is often seen with Milhouse in later episodes. In that episode it was established that Kirk is of Dutch ancestry on his father's side and has a feud with the members of the family that have a Danish ancestry.
Kirk previously served in the U. Army , and attended Gudger College. Kirk's mother apparently is of Greek ancestry, based on the nineteenth-season episode " Husbands and Knives ", in which Milhouse says, "But that's the money Yiayia Sophia gave me for Greek Orthodox Easter!
According to Luann, Kirk was not a very good provider, and she had to borrow money from her sister to make ends meet and steal donated clothes from the town's church so she could have a wardrobe.
When Luann demands a divorce, Kirk is all too happy to oblige. Unfortunately, he loses his middle-management job at Southern Cracker, a job given to him by Luann's father, as a result.
Kirk briefly attempts a career as a singer-songwriter, recording a demo tape of an original song titled "Can I Borrow A Feeling", with mediocre results.
Later, he attempts to get back together with Luann by singing the song to her. Luann does not reciprocate Kirk's feelings. Kirk reveals in " I Am Furious Yellow ", in which he visits his son's school on career day, that he was currently employed as an assistant to the guy who puts fliers under people's windshield wipers.
Kirk also had a job standing on the curb holding a sign directing people to a condo development and worked as a scarecrow protecting a soy-bean crop, which resulted in his eye being gouged by a crow.
Since being fired from the cracker company, Kirk seems to be unable to maintain a steady job. He once shouted at Luann that she had to keep up the alimony payments she owed him, and he has been seen at the Springfield unemployment office, perhaps suggesting that alimony and unemployment benefits are his only steady sources of income.
Kirk was put in jail in the episode " Pranksta Rap " for " kidnapping " Bart which he greatly enjoyed due to him being envied by women and fed three meals a day.
Kumiko Nakamura is voiced by Tress MacNeille. She is a Japanese manga fan and artist from Osaka, Japan. Kumiko first appears in " Married to the Blob ", when she walked past Comic Book Guy 's shop, but stopped when she saw him through the window and liked him.

Legs has a dark blonde short haircut and raspy voice. Louie has a slight black afro and a more high-pitched, even squeaky tone.
Castellaneta based the voice on actor Joe Pesci , one of the several references to Goodfellas used in the episode " Bart the Murderer ".
Lenford Leonard is voiced by Harry Shearer. He works at the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant and possesses a master's degree in nuclear physics , but he is often portrayed as a blue-collar working man.
Lenny appears to be well liked by the Simpson family — on one occasion, Marge and the kids build a prayer shrine for him when learning he was taken to the hospital.
Lenny's full name has not been treated with consistency. After years of being identified only as "Lenny", Homer addressed him as "Lenford" in the season 13 episode " The Frying Game ", and Lisa addressed him as "Mr.
On one occasion, he is promoted to head of the power plant when Mr. Burns goes bankrupt ; which Smithers later describes to Homer Simpson as a "reign of terror".
Homer considers Lenny to be the second richest man he knows. In another episode, he is shown living in a fancy, well-furnished modern apartment that happens to share a wall with a Jai-alai court.
In a "future episode", it is shown Lenny is once again in charge of the power plant. Lenny has a short career as an actor in which he has a minor role in a horror movie to which Homer takes Bart and Lisa.
His acting is shown to be a parody towards bad acting in horror movies. He is a large, surly, snarling man who frequently speaks through clenched teeth, and is one of the few characters on The Simpsons to have eyebrows.
When Principal Skinner has to be temporarily replaced, Leopold stomps in, issues several threats, and terrifies the children by making them think he is the replacement, and then suddenly politely introduces the actual substitute, Ned Flanders.
The children then collectively sigh with relief. Leopold often refers to the children of Springfield Elementary as "little freaks".
He can be seen playing the bassoon in the opening sequence of the show. He is usually seen with his best friend Richard.
Although one of the most minor characters in the show, Lewis was shown in earlier seasons as part of Bart's main circle of friends, although his time lessened as the series progressed.
Despite this, Lewis still appears frequently in scenes involving the Springfield children, and occasionally speaks. Lewis's seeming insignificance to the show is underscored in the episode " Das Bus ", in which Bart mistakenly calls him "Wendell".
Chris Turner , author of the book Planet Simpson , called Naegle "an excellent allegory for the modern corporate age: you don't see through her because there's nothing else to see.
Ling Bouvier voiced by Nancy Cartwright is Selma 's adopted daughter. In Season 16's " Goo Goo Gai Pan ", Selma experiences menopause symptoms and becomes concerned that she will never fulfill her dream of being a mother.
After an unsuccessful attempt to adopt one of Cletus's children Cletus having given up the baby by mistake. What she said was, she's tired of having rabies.
Since China does not allow unmarried people to adopt children, Selma convinces Homer to pretend that he is her husband. Although she succeeds in getting a baby from the adoption agency in Beijing, it is later discovered that her marriage to Homer is fake and Ling gets taken away from her.
The Simpsons attempt to kidnap Ling back, but run into a confrontation with the head of the adoption agency, Madame Wu. Selma entreats her to let her keep the baby, to which Madame Wu agrees.
Since then, Ling has made several appearances on the show including as Maggie's playmate in " Rome-old and Julie-eh ".
In Season 24's " The Changing of the Guardian ", she has grown to a preschooler and shown as precociously talented, able to play musical instruments and practice painting.
Llewellyn Sinclair voiced by Jon Lovitz is a theater director introduced in " A Streetcar Named Marge " who often works in Springfield, known for his perfectionism and sour temperament.
He told the actors of this production at the time that he had directed three plays in his lifetime and had three heart attacks, and that he cared so much about his work that he was planning on a fourth.
Years later he directed Krusty the Clown in The Salesman's Bad Day , a heavily reworked take on Death of a Salesman since the rights were too much for him to afford.
He also directed one of Springfield Elementary's second grade plays where he got frustrated at Ralph Wiggum, and attempted to direct a play of Oklahoma!
His sister runs the Ayn Rand School for Tots. Lois Pennycandy is the executive assistant to Krusty the Clown. Simpson, I've wasted my womanhood asking that same question.
Her name alludes to both Miss Moneypenny from the James Bond series and the actress who originated the role, Lois Maxwell.
Although rarely featured on the show, she has been a recurring character in the Simpsons comic book series. He primarily serves as a foil to Chief Wiggum , and often takes the time to point out his chief's mistakes, as well as resent Wiggum, and be aware of his ineptitude.
Lou permanently became an Afro-American character in " Bart vs. Thanksgiving ", where he was animated to Eddie's voice of Harry Shearer and vice versa.
She is the mother of Bart's best friend Milhouse. For the period from to , during which Roswell left the show, she became a primarily nonspeaking character.
Since the season 8 episode, " A Milhouse Divided ", Luann was depicted as a promiscuous single mother, who pushed her love life in the face of her ex-husband, Kirk.
She first appeared in " Homer Defined ", as a concerned mother who barred Milhouse from being Bart's friend due to Bart being a bad influence.
She wears glasses and has blue hair, traits she shares with her husband and son. Her mother is an Italian who abused Milhouse whenever he spoke English.
In " Lemon of Troy ", it is revealed that Luann originally came from Springfield's bitter rival, Shelbyville , but moved to Springfield early in life, presumably with her father, as her mother remained in Italy.
In "A Milhouse Divided", it is revealed she has a sister from whom she borrows money, as her husband does not provide for her at all , but whom we never meet.
Luann was married to Kirk for several years, giving birth to a son, Milhouse, yet the marriage was an unhappy one.
After an argument over a game of Pictionary , she left Kirk after he remarks he cannot draw "dignity", since he gave it up when he married her.
Although Kirk found the new liberty of a single life tough, Luann uses her newfound freedom to live life in the fast lane, advising Marge to forget everything she thought she knew about her, to which Marge replied that she really did not know anything about Luann at all.
