List Of Recurring The Simpsons Characters

Otto Mann voiced by Harry Shearer is the school bus driver for Springfield Elementary School. Otto is notable for his maniacal driving style (which, along with never getting a driver's license, cost him his job on the season three episode "The Otto Show"), his love of heavy metal music, drugs and his propensity for sounding and acting like a perpetual 1980s teenager. In early seasons he is often used as a friend and confidant to Bart, despite their age difference. Later seasons, however, usually only depict him as a passerby citizen of Springfield who does drugs (mostly marijuana and hallucinogens). He is a (last-minute) member of Homer's bowling team, the "Pin Pals". Otto is a skilled guitarist, and (momentarily) takes pride in the fact that this was the only thing he achieved during high school. In "The Otto Show" and "It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Marge," it's revealed that Otto is a military brat (his father was an admiral in the Navy) and the two don't get along at all. On season 18's "The Mook, The Chef, The Wife, and Her Homer," Otto reveals that he and Kearney were in the same third grade class, implying that Otto, much like Kearney, is older than his outward appearance would have others believe.

Famous quotes containing the words list of, list, recurring and/or characters:

    Every morning I woke in dread, waiting for the day nurse to go on her rounds and announce from the list of names in her hand whether or not I was for shock treatment, the new and fashionable means of quieting people and of making them realize that orders are to be obeyed and floors are to be polished without anyone protesting and faces are to be made to be fixed into smiles and weeping is a crime.
    Janet Frame (b. 1924)

    Do your children view themselves as successes or failures? Are they being encouraged to be inquisitive or passive? Are they afraid to challenge authority and to question assumptions? Do they feel comfortable adapting to change? Are they easily discouraged if they cannot arrive at a solution to a problem? The answers to those questions will give you a better appraisal of their education than any list of courses, grades, or test scores.
    Lawrence Kutner (20th century)

    Let us think this thought in its most terrible form: existence as it is, without meaning or aim, and yet recurring inevitably, without a finale in nothingness—”eternal recurrence.”
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    What makes literature interesting is that it does not survive its translation. The characters in a novel are made out of the sentences. That’s what their substance is.
    Jonathan Miller (b. 1936)
