It was designed in by Marcellus Wright, Sr. Robinson and Charles Custer Robinson.
Appearances[ edit ] On The Simpsons[ edit ] The character of Sideshow Bob began his career as the non-speaking sidekick on Krusty the Clown 's television show.
After Krusty is arrested, Bob takes control of the show, introducing children to elements of high culture. However, Bob's reign is short-lived; Bart Simpson exposes him as the robber, Krusty is released, and Bob is fired and sent to jail.
As part of a scheme to inherit money she has invested in the stock market, Bob attempts to blow Selma up during their honeymoon.
Bart again foils the plan and Sideshow Bob returns to prison. Bob follows them to their hideout, a houseboat on Terror Lake, and, after subduing the family, prepares to kill Bart. He allows a final request, however, and Bart asks to hear Bob sing the entire score of H.
The delaying tactic leads to Bob's third arrest. He defeats Democratic Party incumbent Joe Quimby in a landslide, but Bart and Lisa discover that Bob rigged the election, leading to another incarceration. He is thwarted when he finds out that the bomb itself is a dud, then kidnaps Bart and flies the Wright Brothers' plane in an attempt to kill himself, Bart, and Krusty who is hiding inside a shack, improvising a performance on the Emergency Broadcast System.
This too is thwarted, and Bob returns to prison. In " Brother from Another Series ", Reverend Lovejoy declares him a changed man and recommends him for a work release opportunity. Bob is discharged from prison into the care of his brother Cecil, who is Springfield 's chief hydrological and hydrodynamical engineer.
However, the scheming Cecil, still smarting over his failed audition for Krusty, tries to frame Bob by sabotaging the Springfield Dam. Bob, Bart, and Lisa together stop Cecil and save the town, and both brothers, despite Bob's genuine innocence, are sent to prison. Bob is released from prison and develops a plot to kill Krusty using Bart as a suicide bomber during Krusty's retirement special.
Just as Bob was to succeed, he overhears Krusty publicly holding himself responsible for turning Bob into a criminal, expressing his regret of mistreating Bob during his years as Sideshow. To appease things, Krusty sings himself a song on Bob's behalf, and being touched by this, Bob decides to abort his plan of attempted murder and reconciles with Krusty, although he is returned to prison for it.
After an attempt is made on Homer Simpson 's life, Bob is released from prison to help find the culprit. When the mystery is solved, he returns to murder Bart.
However, Bob finds he is "accustomed to [Bart's] face" and cannot do it. He is elected mayor of a village in Tuscany and marries a local woman named Francescawith whom he has a son named Gino. The Simpson family, in Italy to retrieve a car for Mr. Burnsencounters him by chance. Bob welcomes them with hospitality on the condition that they not reveal his felonious past; however, a drunken Lisa jokes about Bob's criminal deeds, alienating Bob from his citizens.
He, his wife and son swear a vendetta on the Simpsons. Bob fakes his own death and locks Bart in the coffin, which he attempts to cremate at the otherwise empty funeral home as all the Terwilligers laugh maniacally. They are foiled by Lisa and the rest of the Simpson family and sent to prison.
Eventually, Bob and the kids discover the true culprits, Patty and Selma.
Bob returns to Springfield and moves into the house next to the Simpson family, assuming Walt's identity. He exploits this to make his latest attempt to kill Bart legally over state lines, but is foiled again and gets taken away by state police.
He and Lisa bond over their interest in Walt Whitmanbut Bob soon reveals that he has also genetically modified himself to give himself various superhuman abilities, intending to acquire DNA from the relics of various historical figures stored in the Springfield Museum to make himself a superhuman dictator.
However, after he is provoked into a fight, he realizes that he has become a crude monster and jumps off the Springfield Dam, surviving because the gills he gave himself allow him to survive in the lake. Bob briefly appears in " Clown in the Dumps " season 26, where offered his condolences to Krusty after the death of his father, Rabbi Krustofsky.
He also made a brief appearance on " Blazed and Confused " season 26, where he meets Mr. Lassen, Bart's former teacher, who was now reduced to working in prison as a guard after Bart's actions got him fired. Despite Lassen's offer to get him out, Bob rejects the idea that they team up as Lassen thought that they would take turns gutting Bart.
Dead, then Alive", Bob successfully kills Bart, but finds his life so meaningless in Bart's absence that he creates a machine to bring Bart back to life so that he can keep killing his enemy over and over, until the other Simpsons rescue Bart and Bart uses the resurrection machine to turn Bob into a twisted amalgamation of creatures.All the latest news, reviews, pictures and video on culture, the arts and entertainment.
