Profile

Martin Prince is an academically brilliant teacher's pet with the stereotypical geek enthusiasms for science fiction, role-playing games, not-so-great fashion sense, and has an IQ of 216. In other words, he is basically the class nerd and a perfect target for ruthless bullying at Springfield Elementary School.

Given Martin's fawning behavior towards adults and condescension towards his peers (such as successfully extending the school day by 20 minutes), most of Springfield cheers on his tormentors. An example of this is when Mrs. Krabappel assigns a World War I paper. Martin asks if he can type his report and then if it can be ten pages (minimum). Martin disappears almost immediately and Nelson lets the not particularly concerned teacher know that "he's gone now". ... “The Great War ” redirects here. ...


Despite this sort of thing Martin tries to be friendly with Nelson. There have been a few episodes where it is hinted that Nelson does not really want to be mean to Martin, and could even be potentially a friend, if it were not for the pressure of maintaining his bad-boy image at school. Martin is apparently obese, as he is sent to the weight loss section of the hellish Kamp Krusty in the episode of the same name. Although his father calls it "image enhancement camp", Martin sees right through this. "Spare me your euphemisms! It's fat camp for daddy's chubby little secret!" The sexuality of Martin was initially the subject of various jokes and innuendos, although he has since denied be gay. Obesity is an excess storage of fat and can affect any mammal, such as the mouse on the left. ... Kamp Krusty is the first episode of The Simpsons fourth season. ...

One of his more notable appearances is in an episode in which Bart challenges him for the class presidency (the side-story in Lisa's Substitute (season 2 episode 19)). Martin, of course, has a comprehensive (though not particularly politically well-judged) platform which Bart, with the aid of Homer, picks apart with populist nonsense. In a debate, Martin begins to speak of the high level of asbestos in the classrooms. Bart interrupts and says "That's not enough! We want MORE ASBESTOS! MORE ASBESTOS!," leaving the entire class chanting this arrant nonsense. Nevertheless, Bart still loses the election as Martin and his running mate Wendell are the only ones in the class who bothered to vote on election day.

Despite the natural animosity between Bart and Martin, the two have often joined forces. In fact, for most of the series they seem to be friends despite the occasional butting of heads. In one episode, Martin tutors Bart in exchange for lessons on being cool (although Martin betrays Bart at the end of their collaboration). In another, Martin and Bart work together on a soapbox racer. Bart, Martin, and Milhouse all pool their money to buy a copy of the first Radioactive Man comic. In another episode, Bart must wear corrective lenses and leg supports, and temporarily looks quite nerdy and becomes an even greater target for bullying. It is during this time that Martin and a group of geeks and nerds save him until he no longer has to wear his glasses or boots. When kids from Shelbyville steal Springfield's lemon tree, Martin joins Bart as part of the gang of raiders who seek to take the lemon tree back (Bart describes him as the gang's smart guy). Martin's closest friends are apparently Database and Lisa Simpson Look up Cool in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ... 1984 Augusta, Georgia Champion An official Soap Box Derby racer from 1967 Senior Seifenkiste - Deutsches Seifenkisten Derby e. ...

During one spring break, Martin accompanies Bart, Nelson, and Milhouse on a chaotic road trip to Knoxville, Tennessee. Bart is not very harsh on Martin (yet he mistakenly refers to him as "Milton" and is corrected by Milhouse) most of the time, but Martin can get out of control. Aside from being a bit snobbish in early seasons, Martin once became a bad boy even worse than Bart, once slapped Bart on the head when Bart was sad that Homer didn't support him, and once threateningly held a small Shelbyville kid up against a tree. Nickname: Location within the U.S. State of Tennessee. ...


In The Simpsons Movie, the tension of being trapped in a dome and about to be killed by a bomb gets to Martin. His pent up rage releases itself, allowing him to get his revenge on the bullies by relentlessly smacking them around with a plank. He then exclaims that he now understands the joy they get from beating him up, but this revelation does not stop his assault on the bullies. The Simpsons Movie is a 2007 animated comedy film based on the animated television series The Simpsons, directed by David Silverman, and scheduled to be released worldwide by July 27, 2007. ...


Many have noted that as the seasons have passed, Bart has become less and less hostile with Martin to the point of total neutrality; this has not stopped the Springfield Elementary bullies from continuing their traditional beating however. Martin also has become less condescending and more passive as the series has progressed. He is often depicted as too passive, since even Lisa Simpson can be a bit harsh to him, such as a scene in Das Bus in which Lisa is initially blamed by Sherri and Terri for being responsible for stranding the group of children on a deserted island because she helped set up the disastrous field trip. Lisa in turn states that Martin seconded the trip, and because of that it is his fault. Martin has been known to casually hang out with Bart's group from time to time as well, and is often seen with Bart and Milhouse in the background. He also occasionally is seen with Ralph Wiggum. Martin also sits directly in front of Bart in their fourth grade class. Although they often work together on various school projects and classwork, it is implied in many episodes that Martin and Lisa are also rivals of a sort, especially when it comes to the Science Fair. 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. ... Das Bus is the 14th episode of the ninth season of The Simpsons, and a parody of the book and film Lord of the Flies. ... Sherri and Terri In The Simpsons, Sherri and Terri Fisk (voiced by Russi Taylor) are two rather sickly looking twins with purple hair. ... Ralph Wiggum is a fictional character on the animated series The Simpsons, voiced by Nancy Cartwright. ...


In The Simpsons Comics, Martin commonly appears in large supporting roles.
