Jasper Beardly has one of the more peculiar existences on The Simpsons. He says little and never does anything terribly important, but he’s been a part of some of the best gags ever featured on the show. In “Lisa the Simpson,” Jasper is involved in a completely out-of-left-field subplot where he locks himself inside the freezer of the Kwik-E-Mart so he can be thawed out in the future. Once frozen, Apu slaps a Viking helmet on his head, dubs him Frostillicus, and charges people to see him.
However, his most famous moment comes in “The PTA Disbands,” when he's among the adults from town that the school gets to replace its striking faculty. Instead of teaching the children, Jasper stands at the front of the class, paddle in hand, telling the students which misdeeds will earn them a paddling. We can’t do it justice in words, so check it out here.
