| Cletus Junior
| Animal Information
Cletus Junior was Cletus' hunting dog, who died in a drunk gun accident.
After building the Springfield Cemetery and squishing the first zombies, Cletus Spuckler says that it is a sad day because his favorite hunting dog, Cletus Junior has died. Lisa Simpson asks Cletus how he died, with him saying that him and Cletus Junior were deer hunting and Cletus Junior had had too much to drink, and tripped over his own paw and his gun went off. Cletus Junior has presumably been buried in the later-built pet cemetery.
Behind the Laughter
After completing "'Dial 'Z' for Zombies Pt. 2", a dialogue box appears with Cletus' icon. The character is mentioned in the dialogue box as Cletus says "Oh, sad day. Cletus Junior, my favorite huntin' dog, has passed." The dialogue boxes continue with Cletus explaining how how he died to Lisa, and then the quest to build the Pet Cemetery ("'Dial 'Z' for Zombies Pt. 3") pops up. It is possible Cletus Junior is one of the zombified dogs the player squishes in the game.
