Franklin Delano Roosevelt was the 32nd President of the United States, serving from 1933-1945.

History[edit]

When Ralph Wiggum wanted to play the part of George Washington in a school play he dresses himself with glasses, a cigarette holder and by seating himself in a wheel chair. Lisa then says: "Eh, Ralph...", presumably to inform him he dressed himself as the wrong president.[1]

He was mentioned by Mayor Quimby.[2]

He is featured in a 1940s cartoon of The Itchy and Scratchy Show, kicking Scratchy and Hitler, despite the fact that Roosevelt was a wheelchair patient. This is a reference to the fact that during his term not many people in the general public knew he was a wheelchair patient.[3]

When Raphael did a crossword he searched after Roosevelt's middle name. He through it was "excitement" but that don't fit so Lisa started helping him and told him it was "Delano".[4]

A fictional version of Roosevelt was in the opening of Head Butt with Nash Castor where he and Ronald Reagan fought against each other.[5]

A picture of him was seen in a book that Superintendent Chalmers showed Bart, before Bart developed an interest in Theodore Roosevelt. Lisa said she liked Franklin Roosevelt more than Teddy Roosevelt.[6]

When Lisa searches for the radio station Bart was on, she runs into Roosevelt's Pearl Harbor speech in 1941 "A date which we'll live in infamy".[7]

When Lisa was reading her Social Studies book, there was a picture of Franklin and Eleanor in it. Lisa imagined Ms. Cantwell's face coming onto Eleanor's head and she then pushed Franklin, in his wheelchair, off a jetty into water.[8]
