Object Information
Object: Fake skeleton/fossil
Owner: Heavenly Hills Mall
First Appearance: "Lisa the Skeptic"

The Angel Skeleton (aka the Springfield Angel)[1] was a supposed skeleton of an angel that was excavated by Lisa at Sabertooth Meadow, the soon-to-be site of a new mega mall.


When Lisa noticed a new mall was being built on Sabertooth Meadow, a site where fossils had previously been dug up, she got Lionel Hutz as her lawyer and went to the construction site. Here, Sid, and his PR man, ensured Lisa that all the fossils had already been dug up. However, they decided to let Lisa dig for fossils as it could be good for publicity. Lisa then went to Principal Skinner and called in a favor she had to have him allow the students to dig at Sabertooth Meadow. After a while of not finding anything, Lisa noticed a skull in the dirt. She uncovered it and then found that it seemed to have wings attached to it.

Everyone at the dig site was shocked to see an angel skeleton, although Lisa wasn't convinced and tried to explain it away, suggesting that a neanderthal may have been bitten by two angry fish. As the people of Springfield discussed who should keep the skeleton, Homer strapped it to his car and drove off home with it. At home, several people visited, wanting to see the angel fossil. This eventually led to Homer getting the idea to charge people to see the angel.

Homer moved the angel skeleton to the garage and allowed people to visit it. Lisa complained about Homer calling it an angel, despite the skeleton not having been tested to make sure it was indeed an angel fossil. In the night, Lisa took a piece of the skeleton and took it to Stephen Jay Gould at the Springfield Museum of Natural History to get tested. The next day, Lisa told everyone that she had taken a piece to get tested, which angered everyone. Dr. Gould then arrived at the house to tell Lisa that the tests were inconclusive.

After this incident, the angel supporters decided to turn on science and went around destroying scientific institutes in Springfield. Lisa got annoyed at this and decided that the only course of action was to destroy the angel skeleton. However, when she got to the garage, she found that the skeleton was missing. The angel supporters then showed up and accused Lisa of destroying the skeleton and she was arrested. In court, the trial against Lisa started, until Lenny noticed that the skeleton was outside the court house. Everyone rushed over to it and found that it now said "the end will come at sundown" on it. Most people believed the message to be a warning of the apocalypse, although Lisa disagreed. When everyone gathered at sundown to wait for the apocalypse, nothing happened at first. As Lisa tried to tell everyone that she was right, the skeleton rose into the air and yelled "Silence!" The angel then spoke about the Heavenly Hills Mall, revealing that it was all a marketing gimmick created by Sid and his PR man. The angel skeleton then went along rails where it came to a stop above the sign on the mall. When Lisa asked Dr. Gould why the tests came back inconclusive, he admitted that he never actually did the tests.[2]

The skeleton was apparently stolen by the Springfield Mafia and used in the wall that temporally divided the town.[3]

Behind the Laughter[edit]

In an earlier draft of the script, the angel skeleton was revealed to have been made out of dough by the mall's window dresser. However, this scene ended up getting cut.[4]
