| El Barto
| Character Information
El Barto's signature can be seen in a number of different places around town, especially on state buildings. To this day, El Barto's true identity remains a mystery to the vast majority of the people of Springfield.
How Homer found out isn't known, but it's possible that Bart told him as well. However, Homer did once say that he suspected that Milhouse was El Barto, even though at the time he was looking at a graffiti tag that showed Bart as Zorro.
Variations / Uses by other characters
Homer once tried to adopt "El Homo" as his graffiti tag alias, similar to "El Barto". However, he quickly gave up on the idea because his alias was misinterpreted by a Gay Latino man as a declaration that Homer was homosexual, rather than Homer's intended meaning of it being a Mexicanized version of his name.
A severe blow to the head left Bart able to speak only Spanish and he went to a Lucha Libre bout with Pepi and Bumblebee Man. When one wrestler cheated (he was about to hit his opponent with a chair), Bart moved the bandages on his head over his face to make a mask, said he was El Barto, and leapt into the ring to attack the cheater. The intervention was unsuccessul, however, as Bart ended up being hit in the head with the chair, and this second blow left him able to speak only Klingon.
The cover artwork of the comic story collection Bart Simpson: Big Shot! prominently features a large statue of Bart with the words "Eat My Shorts!" chisled into the pedestal. On the rear cover, the statue's pedestal has been spray-painted with the graffito "Bart is a wiener!" and signed with the tag "El Principalo". A spray paint can is on the ground near the base of the statue, and Principal Skinner is running away from the scene.
The Simpsons Tapped Out
