| Marge Albertson
| Character Information
When Marge was young, she lived in Kingfield. She and her friends, Comic Book Guy, Moe, and Carl, stopped the local bullies from hurting Homer Simpson more. Marge stopped them by throwing a baseball into Gary Chalmers' face. Homer became smitten with Marge as she showed concern for Homer's injuries. The gang then took Homer to their clubhouse to patch up his injuries. Outside the clubhouse, Comic Book Guy warned Homer to stay away from Marge as he had called dibs on her.
When Homer told the gang about seeing Krusto, they all believed him as they had also seen Krusto. They decided that they needed to stop Krusto so they went to the Kingfield Clown Archives to do research on him. At the archives, Homer wrote a love poem for Marge and snuck it into her backpack. Marge then found out who Krusto was and she and Homer went to show the rest of the gang a clip from Krusto's TV show, The Yuk-Yuk Hour with Krusto! Whilst watching the show, Krusto came out of the television at them and tried to kill Comic Book Guy. Marge threw Homer some garden shears, which he used to attack Krusto with, hurting him. Marge then shut off the television, temporarily defeating him. The gang then armed themselves to go and fight against Krusto at Channel 14. As they were arming themselves, Comic Book Guy found Homer's love note and took it himself.
At Channel 14, the kids all attacked Krusto after he revealed himself. However, their weapons were ineffective. Krusto slipped on some marbles and went through a slapstick comedy routine, which caused the kids to laugh. Seeing this, Krusto continued to hurt himself for laughs until Marge gave him Li'l Stinker Cherry Bombs. Krusto swallowed the cherry bombs and exploded, defeating him. Afterwards, the gang made a pact to all come together again to defeat Krusto if he should return. Marge then made out with Comic Book Guy, thinking he was the one who wrote the poem for her, as he had signed it himself.
27 years later, Marge had moved out of Kingfield where she had started the company Gal Pal Hard Seltzer. She had also gotten married to Comic Book Guy and they had two children, Bert and Lizzie. When Homer called Marge and Comic Book Guy to tell them that Krusto had returned, Marge wanted to go and help, but Comic Book Guy refused as it was no longer his problem. Despite this, Marge left in the night to go back to Kingfield as she wanted to help. At D'ohs, Homer was about to tell Marge that he was the one who wrote the poem back when they were children. However, he stalled too long and they were interrupted by Bert and Lizzie, who had been brought to Kingfield by Comic Book Guy to take Marge back home. As Marge and Comic Book Guy argued, Bert and Lizzie were taken by Krusto. Krusto then appeared on the gang's phones to tell them this.
The gang went back to Channel 14 to confront Krusto once more. They told Krusto that they had gotten over their childhood fears so he no longer had power over them. Krusto then told the gang that they had something worse than fears as adults, anxieties. Krusto also revealed to the gang that Comic Book Guy didn't write the love poem to Marge. As the adults were attacked by their anxieties, the ghosts of the dead children laughed, which gave Krusto more power. Bert and Lizzie realized that the laughter audience sign was what was giving Krusto his powers and told the adults to destroy it. Homer found a rock and handed it to Marge to throw at the sign. As she got ready to do so, Krusto attacked her, but Comic Book Guy jumped in the way and got bitten. Marge threw the rock anyway and destroyed the sign, releasing the children's ghosts and defeating Krusto. As Marge looked over her dying husband, Homer put a hand on her shoulder. Marge told Comic Book Guy that she wouldn't forgive him, and Homer did a fist pump in response.
