| John Wilkes Booth
| Character Information
John Wilkes Booth was an American stage actor and the man who killed Abraham Lincoln.
Bart played Booth in Springfield Elementary's Presidents' Day Pageant. However, Bart took the opportunity to pull a prank and played the role as the Terminator, saying "Hasta la vista, Abey" just before he shot Lincoln (played by Milhouse Van Houten). After he killed Lincoln, Bart started to attack Chester A. Arthur before he was yanked off of the stage by Ms. Hoover. As he was being dragged away, Bart said in a Southern accent, "Unhand me, Yankee!"
Homer once dreamed that he saved Lincoln from being killed when he knocked down Booth, spoiling his shot. After that, a grateful Lincoln shook hands with Homer.

Professor Frink went back in time to 1865 to save Abe Lincoln. When he arrived, Booth told the director that he would not go up on stage, because the president had eaten the entire buffet so the audience did not get dinner and they now are furious. He was then interrupted by Abe, who is really a 19th-century Homer lookalike, because Abe could not go to the theater and asked Homer to dress up as him. Homer asks Booth where the president's box is, while he digs into a fruit basket. Booth asks to him where he got the fruit basket, and then realizes that the president has taken his fruit basket, and he gets angry with him especially after he walks away, because he must go a see a play. Frink meets the president and Homer sees that the two are equal, so Homer asks Frink to take his place while he takes a beer. Frink goes and sits down in the president'a box. Shortly after, Booth directa a gun at him but Frink moves before he can fire the gun. Booth then tries to shoot Frink again, but fails, and Frink sprays him with an ice beam so he gets frost-bite.
Booth was one of the members of the Devil Flanders's hand-picked Jury of the Damned.
