| Character Information
Lenny was one of the solders serving under Odysseus and a crew member on his ship. He appeared in a story from the book Classics for Children.
When the ship stopped at Circe's island, Lenny and the other crewmembers drank from Circe's cauldron and were turned into pigs. Odysseus, unaware of their transformation, ate all of the pigs/crewmembers even though they still resembled their human selves, Lenny complained about being bitten into, and Circe told him who the pigs really were.
Behind the Laughter
Odysseus and his crew appear in the "D'oh, Brother Where Art Thou?" segment of "Tales from the Public Domain". The segment is a re-telling of the Odyssey with Homer Simpson cast as Odysseus and other Springfieldians as the other characters in the story.
