Ralph Wiggum is a recurring character on the animated series The Simpsons, voiced by Nancy Cartwright. The son of Police Chief Wiggum and a classmate of Lisa Simpson, Ralph is best known as the show's resident oddball, and is noted for his non sequiturs and erratic behavior. His lines range from nonsensical, or bizarre interpretations of a current event, to surprisingly profound statements that go over people's heads; and his behavior varies between blissfully unaware, to dim-witted, to awkwardly spontaneous, even occasionally straightforward.
Charles Montgomery Monty Burns
Charles Montgomery Plantagenet Schicklgruber Burns, also known as Monty Burns, Montgomery Burns, C.M. Burns and Mr. Burns is a rich, influential citizen of Springfield, one of the main antagonists of The Simpsons and a minor antagonist in The Simpsons Movie.

He served as the main protagonist of the TV series and the 2007 film.

Margaret "Maggie" Simpson, Jr. is Maggie's baby daughter in "Bart to the Future" and "Holidays of Future Passed". She looks exactly like her mother did as a baby. She was introduced in "Bart to the Future". Lisa asks where Maggie is, and Marge holds up Maggie Jr, at first implying that Maggie never aged, but Marge then mentions her mom, "Maggie Sr.". She also appears in "Holidays of Future Passed". She is born on Christmas Eve in this episode, and she, her mother Maggie, and Marge arrive at The Simpsons' home the next morning. Her name is not mentioned, however, and in both these episodes her father is never revealed ever.
Lisa Marie Simpson (born May 9) is a charismatic 8-year-old girl, who exceeds the standard achievement level of children her age. Not to everyone's surprise, she is also the moral center of her family. In her upbringing, Lisa lacks parental involvement of Homer and Marge, which leads to hobbies such as playing saxophone and guitar, riding and caring for horses, and interest in advanced studies. In school, Lisa's popularity is affected by those who view her as a geeky overachiever, which leaves her with only a few friends. Lisa Simpson is a smart, witty, independent girl who focuses on her goals and strives to reach her potential, and at age 8 she is already a member of MENSA with an IQ of 159.
William "Willie" MacDougal, is a recurring character on The Simpsons, voiced by Dan Castellaneta. He is the head groundskeeper at Springfield Elementary School.

Moe was born on November 24. Moe either illegally immigrated to the United States from Holland or was born in Indiana. He used to have an Italian accent but no longer uses it, hinting at Italian heritage. At some point in his life, Moe ended up on Mt. Everest where he was brought up by his father, a yeti. When Mr. Burns bought the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant and came into Springfield riding an elephant, Moe asked to touch the elephant. The elephant then steps on Moe, giving him his bad looks. As a child, he played the part of "Smelly", a tough kid, on The Little Rascals until he killed Alfalfa (or rather, an orphan portraying as him) in a fit of rage for stealing his bit and was fired. His first kiss was at 10 with Comic Book Guy. At some unspecified time during his childhood, his parents dropped him off at summer camp, and never returned to pick him up, leaving the Summer camp: Camp See-a-Tree, as being the closest that he could call a home. Moe becomes a victim of prank calls when young Marge calls the boys' camp and young Moe answers it. Marge asks to talk to Elvis Jagger Abdul-Jabbar, which is what young Homer introduced himself as to her. Moe, thinking that she is trying to trick him, becomes angry and hangs up. Then he turns and says, "And, uh, that's the origin of that". Moe has stolen many things but a more remembered item is the bag of Aztec coins in which created the criminal snake (metaphorically speaking).
Nedward Ned Flanders
Nedward "Ned" Flanders is the Simpson family's extremely religious next "diddly-door" neighbor. He is a genuinely well-meaning good-natured person, and is one of the few in Springfield to whom that description applies. Though firmly religious, he can be timid and something of an easy pushover. He thoroughly worships God and strictly follows the Bible as literally as possible and is easily shocked when challenged on any point of dogma. He also owns the Leftorium and a home business, Flancrest Enterprises, which makes religious hook rugs. He also works as a member of the Springfield Volunteer Fire Department.
Marjorie Jacqueline "Marge" Simpson (née Bouvier) (born October 1, 1956), the deuteragonist of The Simpsons, is the homemaker and full-time mom of the Simpson family. She and her husband Homer have three children: Bart, Lisa, and Maggie. Marge is the moralistic force in her family and often provides a grounding voice in the midst of her family's antics by trying to maintain order in the Simpson household. Aside from her duties at home, Marge has flirted briefly with a number of careers ranging from police officer to anti-violence activist.
