Snowball, also known as Snowball I, was the Simpsons' first cat. Her death was never seen in the actual series, since it occurred "before" the show's continuity began. She was first mentioned in the series premiere in a Christmas letter Marge was writing where she explains that Snowball I had died that year. In "Treehouse of Horror III", a picture of Snowball I (as a black cat) is shown with the words "1988-90" underneath and Lisa says "she died four years ago tonight" (although that particular episode aired in 1992): because that episode is a Halloween episode, it is possible she died on Halloween of 1990.

A much whiter Snowball I, as seen in a photograph in "And Maggie Makes Three".

Snowball I has been shown both as a black cat (in a picture in "Treehouse of Horror III") and a white cat (the above and below screenshots). Snowball was, according to Lisa in a poem, run over by a Chrysler. At a later point it emerged that Snowball was run over by Clovis Quimby, drunkard brother of Mayor Quimby (in a parody of what could be any of the Kennedy brothers, Roger Clinton, Jr., or even Billy Carter). Snowball was so-named due to her white-colored fur, though in a few occasions in the series, Snowball I is pictured similar to Snowball II. Although the Sunday school teacher, Mrs. Albright, tells Lisa that Snowball cannot go to Heaven, this proves to be wrong as Snowball has been seen in heaven by characters who have undergone near-death experiences, including Bart, and sometimes in flashback sequences. Due to election forgery, Snowball was listed as posthumously voting for Sideshow Bob. There is evidence that the family owned a similar white cat before Snowball I: In a flashback to "five years ago" in Lisa's Sax, a much whiter cat is seen and in the episode "And Maggie Makes Three", a young Bart is seen riding a white cat in a photograph, which is presumed to be Snowball I.

In real life, many Simpsons books are jokingly dedicated to her. For example, in The Simpsons: A Complete Guide to Our Favorite Family (in which she is mistakenly colored black), the dedication reads, "We hope that they change your catbox in kitty heaven more often than we did down here." In The Simpsons: Treehouse of Horror: Fun-Filled Frightfest, published by HarperCollins in 2003, the more morbid dedication reads "We're sorry you're gone. You would have made a tasty Hors d’œuvre." Also, The Simpsons Holiday Humdinger, published by the same company in 2004, says, "As this snow sculpture thaws on the first warm day, so will our hearts melt whenever we think of you." A passage in Cartooning With the Simpsons, published by Scholastic, reads, "Dedicated to the memory of Snowball I: You may be gone, but we still remember how to draw you." Many other Simpsons books are dedicated to her, but the dedications ceased in 2005. // Bart Simpsons Guide to Life The Simpsons Xmas Book (a book version of Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire) The Simpsons Guide to Springfield The Simpsons Uncensored Family Album The Simpsons Songbook Cartooning With The Simpsons Complete Guides The Simpsons: A Complete Guide to Our Favorite Family (TU shorts...

Snowball III was the third cat owned by The Simpsons. Snowball III was a male cat that was brown in color. Lisa adopts him from an animal shelter shortly after the death of Snowball II.

Coltrane/Snowball IV

Lisa decides to take Snowball IV home.

Coltrane (a.k.a. Snowball IV) was the Simpsons' fourth cat, who slightly resembles Bart. Lisa adopts him from an animal shelter shortly after the death of Snowball III. Originally, she was not sure whether she wanted another cat, but his original name (Coltrane) won her over due to its resemblance with the famous John Coltrane. Upon bringing him home, Lisa decides to play some music for Snowball IV, but the music frightens Snowball IV and he jumps out the window, to his death. Snowball IV was the only cat (except for Snowball I) that was actually white whereas previous and future cats named "Snowball" are black or brown.

Snowball V

Lisa and Snowball V in "I, D'oh-Bot".

Snowball V (a.k.a. Snowball II) is the Simpsons' fifth cat and looks exactly like Snowball II. In "I, D'oh-Bot", the Crazy Cat Lady throws a cat at Lisa while she is mourning the death of the other three cats that appear in the episode. Lisa then tells the cat to leave, because any cat that she owns is unlucky and is certain to be killed. As the cat starts to cross Evergreen Terrace, a car driven by Gil drives past. Gil swerves; his car hits a tree and bursts into flames, thereby giving Gil insurance compensation for his meals. Since the cat is unhurt, Lisa takes it as a sign of good luck and adopts her.

Lisa renames Snowball V "Snowball II" at the end of the episode, in her words "to save money on a new dish", also vowing to pretend the whole thing never happened. Most viewers recognize this as the writers making a subtle self-jab at The Simpsons' often-forced tradition of maintaining a status quo continuity in the series. Principal Skinner, who happened to be walking by, asked "Isn't that a cheat?" to which Lisa replies, "I guess it is, Principal Tamzarian." (a reference to The Principal and the Pauper, another episode with a similar continuity gag at the end.) This article is about the English rock band. ...
