Life

Maude Flanders was the happily married wife of Ned Flanders. With Ned, she had two children, Rod and Todd Flanders, in whom she instilled her unwavering piety. Maude was a woman with many positive qualities: faith, chastity, charity. Maude Flanders was a devout Christian who once attended a Bible camp to learn how to be more judgmental. She campaigned strongly against Itchy and Scratchy with Marge.

While she was not employed outside the home (aside perhaps from occasional stints at her husband's small business, the Leftorium), Maude was a busy homemaker and a tireless advocate for the children, whose innocence is so often sullied by the "evils" of cartoon violence, liberal education and the insidious influences of popular culture. Popular culture, sometimes abbreviated to pop culture, consists of widespread cultural elements in any given society. ...


Even though she spent much of her free time in prayer and reading the Bible, Maude was known to let her hair (and her neckline) down for the occasional dinner party at the home of her neighbors, the Simpsons. Homer often made statements insinuating his attraction to Maude, thereby literally coveting his neighbor's wife. Also in the second season episode The War of the Simpsons Homer oggled at Maude's very low-cut dress at a dinner party which ended up with him and Marge going to marriage camp.

Praiseland

In "I'm Goin' to Praiseland", after Maude's death, the grieving Ned saw in her sketchbook a series of drawings that outlined a plan for a Christian-themed amusement park named "Praiseland". Realizing this park to be her final dream, Ned acquired the defunct amusement park "Storytime Village" (from "Lisa the Vegetarian") from Colonel Antoine "Tex" O'Hara ("The Rich Texan") and, with the assistance of Homer and other townspeople, built and opened Praiseland. He memorialized Maude there with a statue bearing her likeness, on whose base there was a plaque bearing the phrase "She taught us the joy of shame and the shame of joy". Praiseland gained popularity among the residents of Springfield when they erroneously attributed to the statue of Maude the performance of miracles providing religious experiences. The religious experiences and attendant hallucinations were actually the result of the inhalation of gas that was leaking from a gas line near the base of the statue. Feeling that profiting off the memory of his dead wife is wrong, as well as a nearly-possible accident involving matches, Ned closes down Praiseland.
