| Character Information
William Jefferson "Bill" Clinton was the forty-second President of the United States, serving from 1993 to 2001.
Bill Clinton had contact with the Simpsons family and visited Springfield various times. His most notable encounter with the Simpsons was when he answered Lisa Simpson's complaint about a band contest, in which Lisa's band was beaten by the band of another school which used an illegal tactic but still won.
When Superintendent Chalmers was tutoring Bart in American history and showed him an illustration depicting all of the Presidents, Clinton was one of the few that Bart could identify, referring to him as "sex guy".
During Lisa Simpson's term as President, it was revealed that Clinton had kept a stash of pornographic videos at Camp David. The collection was in a large box labeled "Girlies What Ain't Got No Clothes", and Bart's friends went through it when they were supposed to be helping Bart with a "coolness report" to present to Lisa.
Behind the Laughter
- The Bill Clinton character was voiced by Harry Shearer in early episodes, Phil Hartman in "Treehouse of Horror VII" and Karl Wiedergott in episodes since season 10.
- Bart's identifying Clinton as "sex guy" is a reference to the Lewinsky scandal.
