Legs and Louie

Legs, voiced by Karl Wiedergott (formerly voiced by Hank Azaria), and Louie, voiced by Dan Castellaneta, are the two Springfield Mafia hitmen who accompany Fat Tony at all times. Fans often get the two confused due to neither of them having any real definitive characteristic and because they are almost always seen together. Legs has a short haircut and raspy voice. Louie has a slight afro and a more high-pitched, even squeaky tone. He says that tear gas is "[his] one weakness," though this is likely an embellishment. Karl Wiedergott has regularly played various voice roles in the television program The Simpsons, beginning in 1998. ...

It has also been established that Joseph Kennedy, father of President John Kennedy, had something to do with Legs acquiring his nickname, though this is never properly explained.

Frankie the Squealer, voiced by Harry Shearer, is another member of the Mafia and associate of Fat Tony. However, he does not appear to be very useful to his colleagues in criminal activity due to his uncontrollable habit of squealing (he claims that "it makes me feel big"). On several occasions, the mob has attempted to kill him for his squealing, though they have repeatedly been unsuccessful. He was seen once on the ocean floor, however, dead, with his feet in a concrete block. In the episode Ice Cream of Margie (With The Light Blue Hair) he was seen again, posing for Marge Simpson with Fat Tony, who is choking him, for one of Marge's icecream stick statuettes.
