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


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 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.[2]

Krusty the Clown portrayed Franklin D. Roosevelt in a stage version of Sunrise at Campobello.[3]

He was mentioned by Mayor Quimby.[4]

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".[5]

Roosevelt appeared in a story told by Marge. In order to deal with Bonnie and Clyde, President Roosevelt recalled all the air defenses from Pearl Harbor. He then asked to be reminded to move them back again after, with a Japanese ambassador saying that he'd remind Roosevelt.[6]

A fictional version of Roosevelt was in the opening of Head Butt with Nash Castor where he and Ronald Reagan fought against each other.[7]

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.[8]

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".[9]

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.[10]
