Role in The Simpsons

Personality

Hutz is an inept ambulance chaser and, to quote Lisa Simpson, a "shyster" whom the Simpsons nonetheless repeatedly hire as their lawyer (a fact remarked on by Marge Simpson in a typically self-aware aside[1]). He claims to have graduated from Princeton School of Law, although Princeton Law School closed in 1852. His legal practice, located in a shopping mall, is named "I Can't Believe It's A Law Firm!" and also offers "expert shoe repair". He often tries to entice potential clients with free gifts, including a "smoking monkey" doll, a pen that looks like a cigar, a business card that "turns into a sponge when you put it in water,"[2] and even a half-empty alcoholic beverage he once had handy. An ambulance chaser is a derogatory term intended as an insult toward a lawyer specializing in personal-injury cases. ... Lisa Marie Simpson is a character in the animated television series The Simpsons, voiced by Yeardley Smith; Lisa is the only character Smith voices on a regular basis. ... Look up Charlatan in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ... Marjorie Marge Simpson (née Bouvier) is a fictional character featured in the animated television series The Simpsons and is voiced by Julie Kavner. ... The law school at the College of New Jersey (now Princeton University) began instruction in 1847 as a modest effort consisting of three professors. ... For the traditional meaning of the word mall, see pedestrian street or promenade. ...


Hutz is characterized as both a grossly incompetent lawyer and an unethical individual in general; for instance, in the season 4 episode "Marge in Chains" he described the following as his "problem" with Judge Snyder: Marge in Chains is the 21st episode of The Simpsons fourth season. ...

Well he's had it in for me ever since I kinda ran over his dog... Well, replace the word "dog" with "son," and the word "kinda" with "repeatedly."

Hutz was a recovering alcoholic; also in "Marge in Chains", he hastily left the courtroom after handling a bottle of bourbon in order to consult his sponsor. Beyond the law, he also tried his hand at selling real estate[3], and out of desperation for work, babysitting[4]. Hutz's incompetency and financial situation sometimes lead him to resort to rooting through dumpsters, claiming they are client-related[5]. Hutz was briefly married to Selma Bouvier, although this storyline was not shown in an episode. Alcoholism is the consumption of, or preoccupation with, alcoholic beverages to the extent that this behavior interferes with the drinkers normal personal, family, social, or work life, and may lead to physical or mental harm. ...

Cases won

Although Hutz loses almost all of his cases, he did win several cases for the Simpsons, for instance representing Homer in his case against the Sea Captain and the Frying Dutchman restaurant over its "All You Can Eat" offer. He was able to gain the sympathies of a mainly-obese jury, and show that Homer did by no means eat all he could at the restaurant[6]. He was also able to win a case for Bart Simpson, by proving that Itchy was created by an old man named Chester J. Lampwick - though the deciding factor of the case was mainly done by Bart's footwork to collect the crucial piece of evidence, rather than Hutz's competency. Hutz initially provoked the trial with zero credible evidence[7]. Homer Simpson is also a character in the book and film The Day of the Locust. ... The following are a list of fictional recurring characters in the animated television show, The Simpsons. ... For the comic book series of the same name, see Bart Simpson comics. ... The Itchy & Scratchy Show is a show-within-a-show of The Simpsons which usually appears as a segment of the fictional Krusty the Klown TV show, watched regularly by Bart and Lisa Simpson and other characters on the animated series. ...


The only other case technically won by Hutz was in "Treehouse of Horror IV", where he represented Homer Simpson against the Devil (represented as Ned Flanders). At issue was the rightful owner of Homer's soul. Since Hutz quickly fled the scene upon realization of the case's difficulty, the case was not won so much for Hutz's skill as an attorney, but by Marge's introduction of the relevant evidence (a photo with a note from Homer on the back, granting his soul to Marge). In a purportedly-deleted scene for this episode, as subsequently seen in "The Simpsons 138th Episode Spectacular", Hutz's slogan was "Cases won in 30 minutes or your pizza is free". After he thinks he has lost the case, he gives the Simpsons their pizza. However, Marge informs him that they did win. Then, he tells them that the box was empty anyway. Treehouse of Horror IV is the fifth episode of The Simpsons fifth season, first aired on October 28, 1993. ... Homer Simpson is also a character in the book and film The Day of the Locust. ...

Character

Retirement

After Phil Hartman's murder in 1998,[8] Hutz and Hartman's other main character Troy McClure were retired out of respect.[9] The last episode to feature Hutz speak was the season 9 episode Realty Bites. Since the Simpson family frequently appears in court, other characters have represented the Simpsons in legal matters since the retirement. For example, in "Sweets and Sour Marge", the equally-incompetent Gil Gunderson stepped in. The Blue Haired Lawyer has also served as the family's attorney. Lionel Hutz still appears infrequently in clip shows and flashbacks, as well as crowd scenes, but only in non-speaking roles. Hutz and McClure still appear in Simpsons Comics. Phil Hartman (September 24, 1948 – May 28, 1998) was a Canadian-American Emmy Award-winning writer as well as an actor, voice artist, comedian and graphic artist. ...
