From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

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

Some of these characters have returned to the show, sometimes in just brief speaking appearances, or even 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, Cookie Kwan, & 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

Season 1

  • "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 MonstroMart's line of single, pathetic men who only pay cash for their groceries and don't 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 in the bowling team 'The Homewreckers' in "Team Homer" losing to Homer's bowling team the 'Pin Pals'. He is also seen being startled by Bart on his skateboard (along with Bleeding Gums Murphy, Barney, 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).
  • "Homer's Night Out"
    • Gulliver Dark (Sam McMurray), a lounge singer and playboy.[3] After Homer's speech about how women shouldn't 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".
  • "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 deceived Homer into freeing her moments before the police arrived. 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. Ms. Botz's name is a parody of Gertrude Baniszewski.[5]

Season 2

  • "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, being 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".

  • "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]

Season 3

  • "Stark Raving Dad"
    • Leon Kompowsky (voiced by Michael Jackson and Kipp Lennon[13]) was a mental patient who thought he was 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 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

  • "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 doesn't work when Bart leads an insurrection against them). 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 under.
  • "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 also has eyelash implants (which are only legal in Paraguay) and is referred to by Lisa as "the Jack Nicklaus" of the pageant circuit. Dempsy wins The Little Miss Springfield Beauty Pageant, but the crown is turned over to Lisa (the first runner-up) after Dempsey gets struck by lightning during a store opening and becomes "Little Miss Intensive Care".[27]
  • "New Kid on the Block"

  • "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 to decide how to spend the money that one million dollars has mysteriously disappeared, most likely taken by Mayor Quimby). He then suggested that Springfield should buy a monorail. He uses the money to go on vacation without concern for the Springfieldians. However, an angry mob of North Haverbrook residents attacked him, having previously fallen for his monorail scam.[29]
    • Sebastian Cobb (Harry Shearer) A scientist who built North Haverbrook's monorail for Lyle Lanley.[29]
  • "Brother from the Same Planet"

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.[30]
    • Pepi (Tress MacNeillie) is a poor boy who lives in Springfield who becomes Homer's little brother. At the end of the episode, he became Tom's little brother.[31]
  • "I Love Lisa"

    • 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 British man Lisa almost marries in "Lisa's Wedding."

    • 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".

Scorpio is considered by some to be Albert Brooks' best voice performance on The Simpsons[57] and for this and four other guest performances he was named the greatest guest star in the show's history by IGN[57]. Brooks ad-libbed many of his lines.[58] Homer and his family never knew that Scorpio is an international criminal and they will never know about it. His name is a reference to Frank Serpico.
  • " Treehouse of Horror VII

  • "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".[66] The staff rejected the idea and instead inserted the one-time character Roy, with no explanation as to who he was or why he was there, as a reference to the executive's proposal (and a meta-joke about long-running shows bringing in annoying characters to boost ratings).[67] 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.[68]

  • "Homer's Enemy"
    • Frank Grimes (Hank Azaria) was a 35-year-old everyman who was the consummate professional, which clashes with Homer Simpson's idiocy. After several attempts to expose Homer fail, Grimes makes one final attempt by tricking Homer into entering a nuclear power plant design contest intended for children (by leaving a flyer on Homer's desk about the contest, with all references to children removed). After Homer is declared the winner, Grimes snaps, declaring that he can be as lazy and moronic as Homer and get away with it. As he runs amok through the plant, Grimes — declaring that he doesn't need safety gloves, simply because he is Homer Simpson — grabs two high-voltage wires and is fatally electrocuted. 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".

The Simpsons Movie

  • Russ Cargill (A. Brooks) - Russell "Russ" Cargill is a successful businessman and the head of the Environmental Protection Agency (abbreviated as EPA) and the main antagonist of the film. After Homer pollutes Lake Springfield and causes the wildlife to mutate, Cargill presents this disturbing information to the President and convinces him to approve a plan to deal with the situation (there are actually five, but Schwarzenegger randomly chooses the third option without bothering to look at the plans). To this end, Cargill has a giant dome lowered on top of Springfield, sealing the city and its inhabitants off from the rest of the world. He later attempts to have Springfield demolished into the "'new'" Grand Canyon with a time bomb. In the end, he tries to shoot Homer on top of Springfield Gorge only to be knocked out when Maggie drops a rock on his head. Cargill's motivations for trapping Springfield under the dome, although not explicitly stated, most likely stem from owning the company that built the dome and simply having gone mad with power. 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) - President Schwarzenegger (a near replica of Rainier Wolfcastle, who is himself a parody of Schwarzenegger) is the President in the world of The Simpsons. He appears to be inept, shown by his phrase of "I was elected to lead, not to read" and his heavy Austrian accent when he says " Ja, that is me" in response to his addressing as Mr. President. He is also easily manipulated by Russ Cargill into authorizing the destruction of Springfield, although Cargill cannot completely be blamed for the entrapment. 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, such as Diaper Genie in reference to the real Schwarzenegger's failed attempts to leave the action genre, and in a deleted scene he was seen having a Nickelodeon Kids Choice Award.
  • Colin (Tress MacNeille) is an environmentalist kid who had moved to Springfield from Ireland. He soon falls in love with Lisa, and the film ends with both of them holding hands. In the beginning of the film Lisa believed that Colin's dad was Bono since Colin was Irish and he said his father was 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." He wrote a song for Lisa, but since she couldn't hear him through the dome, he was forced to write the sheet music in marker on the dome's surface. In the mob, he had flowers for Lisa (which touched her), but Carl Carlson lit them on fire, mistaking the bouquet for an unlit torch.
  • Medicine Woman (Tress MacNeille) - The Medicine Woman is an Alaskan Inuit who first appears in the wilderness of Alaska, warding off a polar bear who comes close to attacking Homer. After reviving Homer, she helps him have an epiphany, showing he has to care about others as much as himself. Homer refers to her as "Boob Lady" as a reference to her large breasts.
