Character Information
Male ♂
Alias(es): Seymour Skinner
Hair: Brown
Occupation: Supervillain (inactive)
First Appearance: Where Stalks... The Penalizer!

The Penalizer was Principal Seymour Skinner's supervillain alter-ego. He went on a brief spree in Springfield until he was stopped by Bartman.



The Penalizer's costume was a green coverall with a puma logo on the chest. The Penalizer's face was covered by a brown hood equipped with eyeholes and held in place by a grey cord. The costume's gloves and boots were also brown, and the costume had utility pouches at the waist, wrists and boot tops.[1] [2]

Modus Operandi

The Penalizer's motive was to ensure that people who committed crimes that went against society's norms received what he felt were appropriate punishments. Equipped with a pair of night-vision binoculars, he patrolled the streets of Springfield at night looking for offenders. After catching them in the act, he confronted the offenders, orchestrating his reveal for frightful effect. He then made them inflict ironic punishments on themselves by using a rare working Hypno-Coin.[2]



The Penalizer's origin is rooted in post-traumatic stress from Seymour Skinner's wartime Army service in Vietnam.[1] The experience of intense combat situations, plus having been a prisoner of war, [3] [4] left him prone to flashbacks. [5] After becoming principal of Springfield Elementary School, Skinner developed a penchant for rules and details, which intensified during tense situations and resulted in him treating students as though they were soldiers under his command. [4] [2]

It is unknown what specific event led to Skinner's becoming The Penalizer. However, it is known that The Penalizer's spree began sometime after the Hypno-Coin was used to make the teachers think they were chickens. Martin Prince, Jr. later found the coin on the playground and turned it in to Principal Skinner, who stored it in his office safe with other items he had confiscated. Evidently, at some point after that, Skinner stole the Hypno-Coin from his safe and embarked on his supervillain career as The Penalizer.[2]


  • Patrolling - has several victims
  • Bartman finds Nelson
  • News coverage of spree
  • Steals puma emblem from school flag
  • Accuses Bart, Nelson, Jimbo, Kearney and Dolph of theft, threatens to court-martial them
  • Further news coverage - seen with puma logo on chest
  • Bartman determines who The Penalizer is and how he's carrying out the punishments



The Penalizer ran up a large enough count of victims that Springfield General Hospital was forced to re-open its previously closed west wing in order to treat the influx of hypnotically traumatized patients. Bartman began investigating, going on nightly patrols in search of The Penalizer, but with no results until he found Nelson Muntz. From that point, The Penalizer's victims were as follows:[2]

Name Offense Punishment
Penalizer Punishment-Nelson.png Nelson Muntz Attempting to spray-paint graffiti on the back wall of the Kwik-E-Mart Forced to write "I Will Not Deface Private Property" all over the wall; left at the scene in a traumatized trance.
Penalizer Punishment-Jimbo.png Jimbo Jones Loitering Forced to stand with his nose against a wall for twelve hours.
Penalizer Punishment-Kearney and Dolph.png Kearney Zzyzwicz and Dolph Starbeam Making faces out the window of a city bus Forced to make hideous faces; then not allowed to return their faces to normal expressions.
Penalizer Punishment-Barney.png Barney Gumble Belching excessively in public, outside Moe's Tavern Forced to perform twenty thousand jumping jacks.
Penalizer Punishment-Moviegoers.png Unnamed moviegoers Cutting in line Unknown. During the Channel 6 News coverage of The Penalizer's spree, Chief Wiggum said of their punishment, "He made it pretty ugly for them!" However, Kent Brockman was already traumatized from seeing what had happened to Jimbo, Kearney, Dolph and Barney, so the moviegoers' punishment was neither described nor shown.
Penalizer Punishment Attempt-Bart.png Bart Simpson (attempted) Leaving the "El Barto" graffiti tag at the House-O-Donuts (then under renovation) Not applicable. Bart's leaving the tag was a trap deliberately laid by Bartman so he could confront and stop The Penalizer.

Behind the Laughter

The Penalizer is a parody of the Marvel Comics character Punisher.
