Snowball I was first mentioned in a Christmas letter Marge was writing whilst she explained that Snowball I had died that year.[1]

During a heatwave one summer, Snowball I fanned a block of ice with his tail when the Simpson family couldn't afford an air conditioner. he did not like this, and eventually, the family got an air conditioner, but Homer put the temperature too cold and the cat shook as he walked across the living room.[2]

Snowball was, according to Lisa in a poem, run over by a Chrysler.[3] Snowball is buried in the Pet Cemetery, which is next to the Springfield Cemetery.[4] However, at one time, his grave was seen in the Simpsons' backyard, next to Snowball II's grave.[5]

Life after death[edit]

Although the Sunday school teacher, Mrs. Albright, told Lisa that Snowball cannot go to Heaven,[6] this proves to be wrong as Snowball has been seen in Heaven by people who have undergone near-death experiences, including Bart.[7] He was listed as voting for Sideshow Bob in mayoral elections.[4] Snowball I was also the focus of Lisa's song, "My Kitty Died".[8]

One time, Bart and Lisa try to bring back Snowball I using a zombie spell in the pet cemetery, but inadvertently awaken the human corpses in the nearby Springfield Cemetery.[9]

His skeleton ended up in one of the couch cushions.[10]

Behind the Laughter[edit]

Many The Simpsons books are jokingly dedicated to him. For example, in The Simpsons: A Complete Guide to Our Favorite Family (in which he is mistakenly colored black), the dedication reads, "We hope that they change your catbox in kitty heaven more often than we did down here." In The Simpsons: Treehouse of Horror: Fun-Filled Frightfest, published by HarperCollins in 2003, the more morbid dedication reads "We're sorry you're gone. You would have made a tasty Hors d'œuvre." Also, The Simpsons Holiday Humdinger, published by the same company in 2004, says, "As this snow sculpture thaws on the first warm day, so will our hearts melt whenever we think of you." A passage in Cartooning with the Simpsons, published by Scholastic, reads, "Dedicated to the memory of Snowball I: You may be gone, but we still remember how to draw you." Many other Simpsons books are dedicated to his, but the dedications ceased in publications from 2005.
