| Character Information
Dr. C. Everett Koop is a scientist and a former Surgeon General of the United States.
Koop attended a convention of scientists where Lisa Simpson gave a presentation about her discovery of Poindextrose. When she said that the reason bullies bullied smart kids was chemical, he stood up and called her a witch. Later in Lisa's presentation, her bully test subject Francine went berserk and started beating up the audience members. Koop was among the scientists that Francine attacked.
Koop was also mentioned in a song that Homer wrote for The Be Sharps: "For all the latest medical poop, call Surgeon General C. Everett Koop. Poo-poo-pa-doop." However, the song was written during a phase when the group was struggling musically, and Apu said to Homer, "This is worse than your song about Mr. T." The song never appeared on an album, and the group broke up shortly after it was written.
