Jun 18, 2013
Make the ambiguous ones a bit more lenient, for example I put 'Texan' and 'Jewish Man' for the rich Texan and the old Jewish man and they weren't counted, since they don't have an actual name variations should be accepted.

Guys, check out my Simpsons quiz at:

It has the same structure as this quiz.

It accepts more alternate answers, and has WAY more characters.

Nice quiz, but a bit annoying that you accept first names for some, last names for some, but only first AND last names for others (i.e. Scott Christian, Birch Barlow)
+1
Level 24
Jun 22, 2015
nearly impossible without help. i type the right thing and it won't except on some of them such as jacqueline.
+2
Level 55
Jul 29, 2015
Completely agree with this. The quiz seems very inconsistent as far as accepting names. "Murphy" wasn't enough to get "Bleeding Gums Murphy", yet for many other people a last name was enough. For "Jacqueline Bouvier" I typed both "Bouvier" and "Mrs. Bouvier" and neither worked; then I typed in "Marge's Mother" and that was accepted.

Level 74

Don't Montgomery Burns' hounds get an entry under "Animals"?

Hence, I only got 2, Homer and Bart, because I've heard people talk about them.

I am surprised that people that have never watched it, but have heard about it, only know bart and homer and not marge lisa and maggie..

This has been my favorite show since day 1 and I am ashamed at my brain failure. Also, unless I'm missing something, I don't see the Sea Captain. D'oh!

Can you accept Mr. or Mrs. Van Houten for Kirk and Luann? You accepted Mrs. Lovejoy and Mrs. Flanders, so it seems only fair.

agreed
+2
Level 58
Nov 21, 2017
Need more categories. i.e. Next door neighbors. Aliens. Doctors. Bullies. Mobsters. Bar Patrons. Cops. Love Interests. News Anchors.

Convenience store. etc. whatever

Level 66
Nov 21, 2017
Why do you include some one-off characters like Mindy Simmons and Frank Grimes, but not others? Seems to me there is an easy line to draw between recurring characters (which should be part of the quiz), and one-off characters (which shouldn't be part of the quiz because you have some but left off many others).
+1
Level 49
Nov 28, 2017
it says only from the first 9 episodes

Level 66
Nov 15, 2020
Did they only make one episode per year?

Level 66
Apr 12, 2021
I know. The omissions I'm talking about are in the first nine seasons. Some one-off characters are here. Some aren't. For example, there's an Albanian exchange student named Adil who lives with the Simpsons for an episode. He's not here. Mr. Bergstrom, Lisa's substitute teacher, isn't here. Principal Dondelinger, the principal from Marge and Homer's high school, appears in several episodes from Seasons 1-9, but he's not here either. Stampy, Bart's pet elephant for a single episode, is here. Princess, Lisa's pet pony for a single episode, isn't. I know you can't possibly get everyone, but if I try Mr. Bergstrom, who was the focus of a whole episode, and he doesn't work, why would I think to try the name of the guy who controlled the Gabbo puppet? Mr. Sparkle isn't even a real character. He's a dishwashing detergent mascot that appears in one episode, and he's here. It's just impossible to tell where the line is, and I found it frustrating.

Level 47

Please accept Miguel Sanchez and Dr. Nguyen Van Phuoc for Lionel Hutz

Level 67
Jun 10, 2019
I got krusty's dad but didn't get several of the more known ones ( eventhough I could picture them) Like smithers, marge's sisters, and the bullies' names. Plus I kept on thinking it was kent brockhouse.

Level 28
Sep 3, 2019
Won’t let me have ‘Mr Burns’ Hounds’ or ‘Just Stamp the Ticket Man’, ‘Sarcastic Guy Ralph’ and ‘Jonny Tightlips’ please could this be corrected?
+1
Level 70
Dec 30, 2019
This was a very good quiz. Got 101 which was a good score. However for Aristotle Amadopolis and other names, you should accept the first name, because I put Aristotle (not knowing the surname) but it would not let me have it

Aristotle will work now

You could add:

1. Princess Penelope

2. Lou the cow

3. Rigellions

4. Sheri & Terri’s last name is Mackleberry

5. Cletus & Brandine’s last name is Spuckler, and their children are Wheel, Barrow, Whitney, Jitney, Tiffany, Heather, Cody, Dylan, Dermott, Jordan, Taylor, Brittany, Wesley, Rumor, Scout, Cassidy, Zoe, Chloe, and Max

6. Shari Bobbins

If you go to Simpsonswiki.com you find that there are literally 1000’s of characters; many were part of stories re-imagined by the Simpsons’ creators. Eg. Shakespeare, Homer, but there are also a lot of characters that played major roles in some episodes like Belle the madame of La Maison Derriere, Judge Harm, Moe’s girlfriends (Colette, Mindy Simmons, Maya, Renee), girls’ PE teacher Ms. Pommelhorst, boys’ PE teacher Coach Krupt who is infamous for his “bombardment” method of teaching, and many more.
