Not all the characters are available in the main game, but any standard cheat disc like Action Replay Max will open up a host of classic Simpsons folk to play with. Here’s a selection of favorites and rare people from around Springfield:
See… Cletus Spuckler
The slack-jawed yokel is an homage to rednecks all over the US. He’s the proud father of over 20 children and lists his hobbies as collecting “flat-meat” - roadkill, in other words.
See… Comic Book Guy
Most. Sarcastic. Character. Ever. The chunky nerd and proprietor of the Android Dungeon is famed for his dry wit and his passion for comics and films. He also dated Principal Skinner’s mother. Yuck.
See… Dr. Nick Riviera
“Hi ev-erybody!” Meet Springfield’s dodgiest back-street surgeon. He did perform a life-saving heart-operation on Homer - even if it was thanks to help from Lisa reading a surgery manual.
See… Evil Homer
On level seven you can purchase the Evil Homer costume for 450 coins. This outfit comes from one of the most memorable scenes ever, as he dances on the grave of Good Homer, singing “I am Evil Homer!”
See… Ralph Wiggum
The spawn of Chief Wiggum isn’t the sharpest tool in the box, but his unassuming nature and baby-like voice makes him a real Simpsons’ favorite. You should choo choo choose him.
See… Ned Flanders
You’d have to have the patience of a saint to live next door to the Simpsons, so it’s a good-diddly job-a-rooney that Neddy does. He did have one mental spell when his house got blitzed by a tornado.
See… Moe Syzlak
Arguably the most loved character after Homer. Moe’s a born loser who would happily stitch up his best friend for personal gain. Hates children’s laughter as it “cuts through me like a dentists' drill.”
