Nelson Muntz (voiced by Nancy Cartwright, and Tress MacNeille in Bart the General) is a fictional character from The Simpsons.

As such, he serves as a symbol of youth denied its potential by economic strife and social rejection. Both Marge Simpson and Lisa Simpson have picked up on this, Marge adopting him as a surrogate son, and Lisa dating him briefly until discovering that he lied to her. However, Nelson retains a degree of deference to them. He is best noted for his laugh (He always yells "Ha Ha!" whenever anyone suffers any misfortune; see below).

Profile

Nelson is notorious for his unabashed displays of schadenfreude, invariably accompanied by his trademark "Ha Ha!" laugh; often, he makes his victim inflict self-punishment while yelling remarks like "Stop hitting yourself!", "Stop butlering yourself!", "Stop zapping yourself!", "Stop endangering yourself!", "Why you throwin' tomatoes at yourself?!" (usually it is Milhouse and Martin who are subjected to this type of cruelty, although Nelson once described Bart as "Having spiky hair, soft kidneys, and always hitting himself"). Look up Schadenfreude in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ... The butler is a senior servant in a large household. ...


His family life, though always dysfunctional, is inconsistent; while some early episodes claimed his mom left the family and/or his dad "went nuts," the canon story that has eventually evolved is that he lives with his cash poor mom, who got fired from Hooters and owns a dilapidated house. She is depicted as a jailbird, a whore, a stripper or something similar. In Sleeping with the Enemy, she reveals she won the role of Lady Macbeth in the Shakespeare play by sleeping with the director, and saying "I don't have to take my top off, but I do anyway!". Nelson is also a cigarette smoker and has a taste for things that aren't meant to be edible such as drywall, tadpoles, bird eggs, and nicotine patches (Athough he thought that they were mini quesadillas). Nelson's dad appeared to have left after apparently going to the store to buy cigarettes. As a result, Nelson has hallucinated that his father has come back to him. Nelson's dad returns in the 16th season episode, Sleeping with the Enemy. It turns out that he did not leave Nelson deliberately; he bit into a chocolate bar, not knowing it had peanuts and had an allergic reaction. Looking like the elephant man, he ran out of the store and encountered a circus, that made him a part of their freakshow. At performances circus attendees threw peanuts at him, which perpetuated his reaction, never allowing him to return to normal. When the circus came through Springfield, Bart recognized him and brought him home to rid himself of Nelson (who had been taken into the Simpson home by Marge Simpson).

Nelson raising his hand while bored in his class

Although in the first season, Nelson seemed to be Bart's antagonist, he becomes Bart's friend in later episodes. Although still prone to violence, he occasionally hangs out with Bart and his outcast friends such as Milhouse Van Houten and even common bullying target Martin Prince, more often than delinquents Jimbo, Dolph and Kearney. Many have noted that around season 6, Nelson is not seen with the bully trio very often, hinting that his friendship with them is superficial. Nelson has many other moments where he displays his hidden good nature, such as his brief amorous relationship with Lisa. Nelson Muntz bored and raising his hand. ...

Although he cannot control his delinquent tendencies, he treats her with respect and even tries to change for her, although both of them realize that he is not being true to himself by doing so. Another curious example is with Martin, a boy whom Nelson picks on perhaps more so than any other kid in town. Despite the utter cruelty, there are occasional hints that Nelson does not harbor any hate towards Martin, and does not want to pick on him. In the episode, I'm Spelling as Fast as I Can, both Nelson and Martin attend Space Camp and it is implied that Martin had helped Nelson quite a bit and the two may have been very friendly. Due to the peer pressure of maintaining his bad-boy image at school however, he seems to deliberately go back to his antagonism toward a rather dismayed Martin.

In one episode, Nelson represents Japan at the school's Model UN club. As mentioned, another notable aspect of Nelson is that in various episodes, he seems to give off the impression that he is a lot smarter than he may first appear. Nelson often points out painfully obvious things to adults and kids alike that take them longer to grasp. Another example is a running joke where Nelson does a class assignment which is implied to be of high quality. However, he is always brushed off by the teachers before he gets to show them his work. On the other hand, he does often demonstrate stupidity. When Skinner tricks Bart and the bullies by telling them they are getting bikes but instead locks them in the closet, Nelson still believes he is going to get a mountain bike.

Nelson's sensitive side: listening to Moon River at an Andy Williams concert

As well as Nelson's potential competency at school work, Nelson is also a natural athlete. In addition to physical toughness (He once blocked a punch from Jimbo intended for Bart and twisted his arm behind his back), Nelson also plays a variety of sports throughout the series. Although he lacks the great dexterity of Bart, his natural prowess compensates on multiple occasions. In the episode Bart Star, Nelson almost singlehandedly carries the entire Springfield Pee-Wee football team. As the team quarterback, he also on one occasion catches his own pass and plows through the opposing team with extreme ease. Nelson is also a fan of many unexpected things, such as Andy Williams (Revealed in the episode, Bart on the Road) and Snow White (Revealed in the episode, The Dad Who Knew Too Little). He is also an expert in the proper preparation of huckleberries(also probably a reference to Nelson's similarities to the title character of "Adventures of Huckleberry Finn," a novel by Mark Twain). According to the episode, The Monkey Suit, Nelson is apparently a master of disguise, fooling even Bart and Ned Flanders.

Although Nelson is still as violent as ever, he has also been known to beat people up for arguably noble reasons (Usually it is Bart who is subjected to this type of punishment). In one episode, he punched Bart in the stomach, saying "That's for taking credit for other people's work!", when Bart claimed to have been Krusty's assistant (The show's credits were too small to read to prove this claim) or when Bart wrecked Hitler's vehicle at a carnival ("You wrecked Hitler's car! What did he ever do to you?!"). He also beat up Bart for "Wasting teacher's valuable time!", when Bart constantly raised his hand with the wrong answer to answer a question Mrs. Krabappel asked, and "Besmirching an innocent girl's name!" when Bart tried to flaunt his relationship with Jessica Lovejoy to the other kids, although she ignored him. However, Nelson himself was subjected to a beating at the hands of Kearney when he used the word "guff". Jessica Lovejoy appered in Season 6 Episode Barts Girlfriend. ...


Nelson's most embarrassing moment was in the episode 22 Short Films About Springfield, when he was forced to march down the street with his pants pulled all the way down to his ankles to a jeering crowd for his years of torment, while Bart and Milhouse squirt ketchup and mustard on him from a highway overpass. In the end, Nelson has come a long way in development from a generic bully terrorizing Bart and other Springfield Elementary School children, to a rather complex character. 22 Short Films About Springfield is the twenty-first episode of The Simpsons seventh season, airing on April 21, 1996. ...


At times he is depicted as having master answer sheets to various tests and assignments at school. In one episode he has an "office" located in a toilet cubicle where he has the answer sheets hidden in the toilet cistern. He also has a framed picture of himself mounted on the cubicle wall with "Employee Of The Month" stenciled below it.


The episode Future-Drama depicts Nelson to have dated and impregnated identical twin sisters Sherri and Terri, becoming the father to two sets of twins. He then claims to be going out to the store for a pack of cigarettes, and then ran away when the twins questioned that the excuse he gave was the very same excuse that Nelson's father gave when he ran away from Nelson. Future-Drama is the fifteenth episode of the sixteenth season of The Simpsons. ... Sherri and Terri In The Simpsons, Sherri and Terri Fisk (voiced by Russi Taylor) are two rather sickly looking twins with purple hair. ...


Although Nelson is usually portrayed as straight, in the episode, Smart and Smarter, Nelson called Lisa gay which led to Lisa pointing out that accusations of homosexuality are made by people trying to cover up their own latent homosexuality. After this, he panicked and jumped out of the bus while shouting "Bullies rule!" Smart and Smarter is the thirteenth episode of The Simpsons fifteenth season. ...


In the episode Little Big Girl, it is revealed that Nelson is of German, descent. However, ironically, in the episode Much Apu About Nothing, Nelson picks on Uter for being German. Little Big Girl is the twelfth episode of The Simpsons eighteenth season, which originally aired on February 11, 2007. ... Much Apu About Nothing is the 23rd episode of The Simpsons seventh season. ... Ãœter is a fictional German foreign exchange student in the TV series The Simpsons. ...
