Simpsons, The Easter Egg - Fry in Background

In the episode where they go to a state fair, and end up getting a race horse, after the part when homer is talking to the horse, when they both walk off screen, in the background Fry from Futurama is leaning against the fence. Not a big deal, but its fun to look for.

Ok then, I want to know what the guys name is that pops up occasionally and he usually saying "Yeeeees. Yeeeees. YES!" He was a waiter one time, in the Framed Up episode, he was one of the Executioners... I've never heard another character even talk about him. Any clues?

In the episode where Milhouse gets picked to be Radioactive Boy (I forget which episode it is), Comic Book Guy goes on the internet to find out where they're going to be filming the film. If you look quickly, you can see he's using the name "Jay".

The bumblebee guy's name may "bee" Pedro. You can see the name on his bowling jersey in the Pin Pals episode. He is based on a famous character named "Chesperito". As far as I'm concerned, the only nameless regular characters are the comic book store guy and the squeaky voiced teen (from the Aztec theater and video arcade). Maybe I'm wrong about the teen. Anybody know Judge Snyder's first name? That may be a tough/impossible one.

It is Fry from futurama, no doubt about it men! and I have another Fry apearance in the show: In The Simpsons intro, when Bart's skating trough the city and hits a bus stop signal, you should see him (Fry) as one of the running characters chasing for the bus.

In the Simpsons episode Behind the Simpsons where the characters were interviewed, when the comic book guy was interviewed it said Comic Book Guy, Comic Book Guy.

Yes, his name is Hans Moleman. My all-time favorite appearance of him was in the episode where Bart becomes Mr. Burns's heir; when Bart doesn't love Homer and Marge anymore, they decide to get a psychiatrist to get him to love them. The psychiatrist can be seen running into a hotel room with a bundle, and you find out later that it was Hans Moleman. He comes by dressed like Bart holding a skateboard and says "Hi, dudes". Homer introduces Bart to his new brother and starts kissing Hans on the head. Homer says it's "like kissing a peanut" - it's hilarious!

I doubt that its Fry, i donĀ“t think so, It kind of looks like Fry, but he has a different hair-color and his face doesnt look like the guy in the simpson episode. But in an other Simpsons episode, Bender is sitting in the background in some kind of a Jury....

The Comic Book Guy's name is Jeff Albertson. He has a name; no more argument needed. Also, Arnie Pie's segment is called "Arnie in the Sky". It's ironic and funny. The fact that it's not called "Pie in the Sky" is the joke!

Actually mike hbc pat is right. You are mistaken as to which episode pat is taking about. It is not "Lisa's Pony" which did indeed air in 1991 but a much later episode. You will notice pat refers to a state fair. In "Lisa's pony" there is no state fair. I don't know the proper title but it must be from the latest series as it only aired (in the UK at least) a few months ago, after Futurama had started. Basically the Simpsons rescue Duncan the incredible diving horse from the state fair after Chief Wiggam confiscates it from its original owner for animal cruelty. They later rename the horse "Furious D" enter races and win lots of money with him. The fat comic book guy makes an appearance and refers to the "Lisa's pony" episode but they are completely separate episodes, many years apart. I too saw Fry standing in the background so this is actually a good find by pat and NOT coincidence.

All of the nitpickers in this meandering chain of conversation sound like the Comic Book Guy to me. Arguing and harping over every little teeny weeny itsy bitsy miniscule statement someone before them wrote. Referencing secret sources of information and obscure tomes to refute their claims and prove once and for all, to God and everyone, that they are the King Supreme Undisputed Lord Of Hallowed Simpsons Knowledge. What in the world do Bumble Bee Man and Jasper have to do with the episode which allegedly showed Fry? For being such anal sticklers for detail I dub thee, Worst Nitpickers Ever!

That Patomi Zinger comment, about the Bumble Bee guys name... I'm not sure if you confused it or not, but in the episode where Mr Burns gets shot (the first part, or second) Smithers runs off to watch the TV show Pardon My Zinger.

to _Ronin_ :Carl's last name is Carlson. Lenny's last name is Leanord. I believe the lunch lady/ school nurse/ one-time gym teacher (Lisa's in an episode) name is Doris. I remember on one episode -can't remember which, Principal Skinner said something to somebody about "LunchLady Doris" and pointed to her. Also, the "teenage pubescent" boy's name isn't really 'Pop', and the girl he wanted to hook up with isn't really named 'Mom'. Those are just clever titles for their JOBS. Furthermore, how did everyone get into a discussion about unknown names on the Simpsons from Fry being on an episode? If you ask me, some of you need to get a life. Especially those of you who spend their time playing things in slomo, frame by frame, and in reverse.

Yeah, I think the Comic Book Store Guy is the only Simpson's character without a real name. The Bumblebee Man also now that I think about it. The squaky voiced teen and the wise cracking salesman don't really count since they've had different appearances throughout the run of the show. Oh and before you say it... the Sea Captain's name is Captain McAllister.

The one where you find out that "The Baby With One Eyebrow" is actually called Gerald is where Bart gets a credit card and buys that new dog. The dog saves Gerald and we know he's called Gerald because Mayor Quimby says something along the lines of "...who knows what trouble baby Gerald will get into in the future" or something like that.

I was wondering who Scott Christian, Arnie Pie (possibly the kid with the squeaky voice?), Dr. Pryor, and Mr. Largo are. Also does the Jail-bird have a name (Snake?). And Dr. Hibbert's first name is Julius and his wife has a name but I don't know what it is.

Dr Hibbert's wife is actually called Bernice. In the episode "Homer vs. The Eighteenth Amendment", the old man studying the laws in Springfield discovers prohibition had actually been illegal all along. Cut to scenes of Homer lying passed out on the floor by the newspaper, Moe and Barney passed out by newspapers with beer going everywhere, and Dr Hibbert reading the paper at the table. He says "Look at this Bernice" or something to that effect. Anyway, he definately calls her Bernice. There is more information on this page - http://www.snpp.com/episodes/4F15

ok to clear somethings up... the comic book guy is actually called THE COMIC BOOK GUY and no Bender isnt in a jury but he's actually sitting on the recption stands on the PBS funding program which Homer donates to get it off so he can again watch tv... as for Fry running to the bus stop... that was a REALLY old opening which was later cut from the opening credits and i think that was most likely a coincidence as Futurama was created a while after those openings stopped showing.... so yeah and anyway how was this topic brought up?

Some other unnamed characters (please excuse me if they DO have names): That old guy who is a friend of Grandpa Simpson, that other old guy who always gets left behind, that kid who's hair is just a squiggly line (I think he's in Bart's class). My point is, many Simpsons characters have no names.

I'm sorry about that. But still, you have to remember the guy that is always left behind. In the one where Homer & Marge go out on the town, & they pass Planet Hollywood, he's stuck up in the car. In another episode (I forget which one) Dr. Hibbard & someone else leave his office to go do something, & that guy is left in the X-ray machine. Do you know who I'm talking about?

The Comic Book Store guy is also supposed to represent all of the fans who make critical comments about the series, and say it isn't as good as it used to be (in my opinion, he's right). In the second horse episode- the one mentioned above, with the state fair, when one of the Simpsons asks, "can we take care of a horse?" he says something like, "this actually happened a number of years ago, when Lisa got a horse, and you couldn't take care of it," and everyone tells him to shut up. After the closing credits of that episode (not one of the best), you hear him saying, "Worst episode *ever*" (which resembles something he said in an earlier episode.

Actually, his name is indeed Jasper. The only time he was called "Frostillicus" was when he was trapped inside the Kwik-E-Mart freezer case. Apu had named him that, most likely because it was much more mysterious sounding. In "Who Shot Mr. Burns ?" you can actually hear them naming him as Jasper. (I've heard it in a few other episodes as well, but can't name them off-hand)

First up, to the person who said that Comic Book Store Guy's name is Jo, I'm sure you an Matt Groening are very good friends, but until they mention his name on the show, he is nameless. Similarly, years ago, if you asked the writers, they would have told you that Smithers is married and has children. In fact, they even wrote that into an episode but it ended up on the cutting room floor. Luck for us, huh? Secondly, I think that the person who stated that Jasper's names was Frostillicus was joking. Unless he actually thinks that the mayor's real name is Diamond Joe and that the little boy's real name is El Barto.
