It’s time for another post where we celebrate the birthday of either a Simpson character or a cast and crew member important to the Simpsons by reviewing their history (biography of their life), looking at quotes or reviewing what they do.
I do hope that everything comes up for Milhouse’s birthday!
In this post I wanted to explore Milhouse and some of his greatest and funniest moments in Simpson history! So read on to get more information …
Milhouse has had his ups and downs. With Dutch, Danish, Italian and Greek he is a gullible friend to Bart and is often toyed around and being dared to do things Bart doesn’t want to do himself. He is constantly being bullied by the school bullies and is often the target for humiliation!
The Creation of Milhouse
A few ‘Did you know’ facts about how Milhouse as a character was created by the studio
– Milhouse was created by Matt Groening for a Butterfinger advert but they then decided that they wanted him in the upcoming series.
– He was named after Richard Nixon, a U.S president, who’s last name was Milhous. Greoing chose this name because he called it the most ‘unfortunate name he could think of for a kid.’
– Al Jean said that Milhouse was a favourite throughout the staff because “most of the writers are more like Milhouse than Bart”.
– Howard Gewirtz, writer of the episode ‘Homer Defined’, gave Milhouse his last name who got the inspiration from on of his wife’s friend’s name.
