First appearance: “Marge Be Not Proud” (Season 7, Episode 11)
Voiced by: Lawrence Tierney
His stint may be short, but Don Brodka—“That’s right, Don Brodka”—still ranks as one of the show’s best one-off characters. Voiced by the brilliant, but notoriously difficult to work with Lawrence Tierney, Brodka is the security guard at the local Try-N-Save department store who catches Bart stealing a copy of the video game, Bonestorm.
Tierney provides the gravely voice and salty personality necessary for a former Marine, but it’s his delivery of some of the episode's more subtle jokes, such as the bizarre conversation with the Simpson's answering machine, that elevates Brodka to cult classic status.
