Richard Milhous Nixon was a former President and Vice President of the United States. He served as President from 1969 to 1974 and previously served as Vice President from 1953 to 1961 under Dwight D. Eisenhower. After his tenure as President, Nixon spent some time in Springfield.


Before Richard Nixon became President, he appeared in a Duff Beer commercial with John F. Kennedy during the Presidential debate of the 1960 election campaign.[3]

According to a sign on the White House tour, Nixon once bowled back-to-back 300 games at the White House's bowling alley. Homer Simpson, however, didn't believe it.[4]

When Homer talked about Dog Hell he said that Nixon's dog was there. Homer thought it was called Chester but Lisa corrected him and said it was Checkers.[5]

At the Springfield High School reunion Bobby Mindix did an impression of Richard Nixon.[6]

Nixon later (after his time as President) received an honorary degree from Springfield A&M, conferred on him by the school mascot Sir Oinks-A-Lot. Nixon remained a supporter of both the school and the pig. When Sir Oinks-A-Lot was kidnapped as a prank by Springfield University students, Nixon was one of the pig's "powerful friends" who exerted influence on the Springfield University dean to expel the pranksters. He would also later be seen wearing a bra on his head with Homer and Dean Peterson playing guitar in a snapshot of Homer's second turn at college. From the expression on his face, he was not amused.[7]

Nixon was among the guests at Mr. Burns' birthday, along with Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, and Jimmy Carter.[8]

Nixon also once participated in Whacking Day.[9]

Mr. Burns said he let Nixon beat him at golf in 1974, apparently because he felt sorry for Nixon. Burns said that Nixon "just looked so forlorn" and was concerned about possibly going to jail.[10]

During the Presidents' Day Pageant at Springfield Elementary School, Bart clowned around by putting eyes and a nose on his behind to make it look like Nixon's face. He then mooned a group of girls and said, "I am not a butt!"[11]

The Fan Man was said to have attended the Nixon funeral.[12]

In a flashback scene, Homer heard Nixon's voice as he delivered his famous "Therefore, I shall resign the presidency" line.[1]

One of the old issues of TV Guide in Homer's collection had a picture of Nixon on the cover. Also, John had for sale in his shop a throw pillow with Nixon's picture on it.[13]

A picture of Nixon, along with the other U.S. Presidents, was seen in a book that Superintendent Chalmers showed Bart, before Bart developed an interest in Theodore Roosevelt. Bart was only able to identify a few of the Presidents, and Nixon was not among them.[14]

Principal Skinner has a picture of him mounted on his wall.[15]

A picture of President Nixon's head was seen on an exhibit for "The Science of Futurama" at the Springfield Science Museum.[16]

An animatronic of Nixon was seen in the Hall of Vice Presidents at Kissimmee St. Nick Theme Park and Resort.[17]

In a dream that Mr. Burns had, Burns was dancing with George Washington on a one dollar bill. He then pushed Washington out of the way and started dancing with Nixon instead, which he said was better.[18]

When Homer was put on trial for his soul by the Devil Flanders, Nixon was summoned to appear as a member of the Devil's hand-picked "Jury of the Damned." Nixon protested that he wasn't dead yet (and had just written an article for Redbook), but agreed to serve after the Devil reminded him that he owed the Devil a favor.[19]

When Homer was young and bought a model kit his father told him that he has been begging allowance advances out of him since Nixon won the election.[20]

When Homer was young and found a lamp with a genie inside he asked his father if he could wish to be the world's greatest yo-yo champion; Abe responded to his son thinking it would not be a good idea due to the possibility of him performing for then-President Nixon and accidentally assassinating him, thus making Nixon's Vice President Spiro Agnew his successor and Homer proceeds to imagine this.[21]

Richard Nixon's ghost was revealed to be haunting the room Donald Trump sleeps in in the White House. Nixon's ghost told Trump to burn the tapes. He then thanked Trump because Nixon was now the 44th best president of the United States. Nixon then joined in the hug between Trump and James Comey.[2]

Herman said that the stump of his right arm looked like Richard Nixon and offered to show it to Bart and Lisa. They quickly fled his store in disgust.[22]

  • Coincidentally, when subjected to G-Force from the rocket sending him to space, Homer looks a lot like Nixon.[23]
  • Nixon was originally going to play Gerald Ford's role in "Two Bad Neighbors", but this was changed to Bob Dole and later to Ford because of Nixon's death.

Behind the Laughter[edit]

Archive audio of Nixon's famous line, "Therefore, I shall resign the presidency", was used in "Worst Episode Ever". In Nixon's other appearances, he is voiced by Harry Shearer. Shearer would later play Nixon in a live action role in Nixon's the One, a television show featuring re-enactments of Nixon's infamous White House tapes.
