Abraham Lincoln (or "Honest Abe"), was the 16th President of the United States. He was in office from 1861 to 1865 (during the American Civil War) and was assassinated a month after the start of his second term. He is one of the four Presidents whose faces are depicted on Mount Rushmore.

History[edit]

In 1860, Mabel Simpson was trying to get Virgil to Canada. Along the way, Mabel saw herself and Virgil on a "MISSING" poster, and figured that they would most definitely be found because of Mabel's large hair. They then happened on Abraham Lincoln in the road, and when he saw their problem, Lincoln said she could wear his tall hat to hide her hair. When Mabel put it on, she asked how she looked. Lincoln said that she looked like a pot-bellied stove, and Mabel gave him a dirty look. Lincoln then defended himself by saying "Hey, hey. Honest Abe."[3]

Mabel and Virgil made their getaway to Canada, married and later had a child, Abraham Simpson I, who Grampa said was named after Abraham Lincoln. Since Lincoln's timely assistance made it possible for Mabel and Virgil to marry and have children, this may well be true.[3]

When the Simpson family was chosen to appear on the reality television show The 1895 Challenge, Homer lamented that in 1895 it would be too late to save Lincoln, but too soon to save McKinley (who was also assassinated).[4] Homer had a daydream where he did save Lincoln from being killed when he knocked down John Wilkes Booth. Shortly after that (in another daydream), Homer and Lincoln teamed up to save President Kennedy from being assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald.[5]

There has also been a Kissing Lincolns Coin. It was the result of a minting mistake, which resulted in two images of Lincoln's face being placed on the same side of the coin, facing each other so they looked like they were kissing.[6]

When Homer told the kids he needed heart surgery, he reassured them, "I'm not going to die. That only happens to bad people." Bart asked, "What about Abraham Lincoln?", referring to Lincoln's having been assassinated. Homer, still trying to reassure the kids, said that Lincoln had "sold poison milk to schoolchildren", which earned him a swift rebuke from Marge.[7]

Lincoln was portrayed by Milhouse Van Houten in Springfield Elementary School's Presidents' Day Pageant. The scene with Lincoln featured his death at the hands of John Wilkes Booth, who was played by Bart Simpson. Bart, however, saw an opportunity for mischief and played the role as the Terminator, saying "Hasta la vista, Abey" as he shot Milhouse with a Ping-Pong ball gun.[8]

In an Itchy & Scratchy cartoon, Itchy threw a penny at Scratchy from the top of the Space Needle. As the penny fell, Lincoln's face on the coin came to life and screamed as the coin gathered speed.[9]

In another Itchy & Scratchy cartoon, Lincoln's statue was depicted coming to life and taking part in the action. The statue pulled Scratchy's head off, then used an uprooted fencepost to hit Scratchy's head like a baseball and send it flying through the air.[10]

When Patty and Selma were fired from their jobs at the DMV, one of their "replacements" was an animatronic Abraham Lincoln that handled customer complaints.[11]

When Lisa had a beard of bees, Abraham Simpson came in and mistook her for Abraham Lincoln and was amazed that he was back, and that he had gotten rid of the hat. He then went on to say that Lincoln had his vote.[12]

When Superintendent Chalmers showed Bart an illustration depicting all of the U.S. Presidents, Lincoln was one of the few that Bart could identify, referring to him as "five-dollar bill guy".[2]

In a commercial for Mattress King, Minnie Szyslak was dressed up as Abraham Lincoln.[13]

When thinking about the good things America had, Lisa imagined Abraham Lincoln. When Louis Armstrong started to head to Canada to get legalized weed, Lincoln asked him why he was going there before he followed Armstrong.[14]
