Slow Leonard is a tortoise at Springfield Zoo.


When the Simpson family went to the zoo, Homer was happy to hear that Slow Leonard was still alive. However, Slow Leonard was missing from his enclosure. When Homer confronted the Springfield Zoo director about his disappearance, she dismissed Homer and said that he'll be around somewhere. Homer then started to look into Slow Leonard's disappearance and thought that he had been kidnapped. Homer went to Chief Wiggum with his concerns, but was dismissed. He then posted on a group on Facelook where his theories were quickly accepted.

Homer and the people he met online formed a conspiracy group trying to solve the disappearance of Slow Leonard. The group came up with multiple theories, from the director kidnapping him, to Slow Leonard being used as a drug mule and his semen being used to breed slow horses. The group then decided to protest outside of the director's house, who insisted that she didn't kidnap Slow Leonard as that's exactly what a zoo is anyway.

Whilst investigating at the zoo, Homer found Slow Leonard down a literal rabbit hole. He then took Slow Leonard home with him but didn't tell the group as he didn't want them to disband. Marge got angry at Homer for not telling the group that he solved the case, but Homer wanted to see the wedding of Gil and Miss Hoover through. At the wedding, the group started discussing ways they could bring the zoo director to justice, which included putting her life in danger. Homer told them that they couldn't do that as she wasn't a bad person. As the group turned on Homer, Marge showed up with Slow Leonard.

The group initially decided that Slow Leonard had to be a robot sent to spy on them. Homer tried to talk them out of this theory, but couldn't until the "robot detectors" gave a negative result. The group was saddened by the idea of breaking up, but then decided to go on to solve other conspiracy theories instead.
