The Simpsons are bringing back infamous character Jacques – after 33 years
The simpsons is set to bring back an infamous early character – 33 years after his last appearance.
The first season of the long-running animated film introduced a character named Jacques in the 1990 episode “Life On the Fast Lane.”
Jacques was a French bowling instructor voiced by comedian and filmmaker Albert Brooks, catching the attention of Marge Simpson.
Ultimately, however, Marge decides against accepting Jacques’ romantic advances and sticks with Homer.
On Sunday (March 19), the character returns in a Season 34 episode entitled Pin Girl.
The episode’s official synopsis reads, “A mysterious figure from Marge’s past returns to train her for a bowling tournament.”
Showrunner Al Jean confirmed on social media that the “mystery character” will actually be Jacques, voiced again by Brooks.
While this will mark Brooks’ first return to the role, the Modern romance The filmmaker has voiced a number of other characters The simpsons in the course of its run.
His other one-off roles include supervillain Hank Scorpio in the classic episode of Season 8 You Only Move Twice, motivational speaker Brad Goodman in The Inner Child of Bart, and Russ Cargill The Simpsons Movie.
Jacques has appeared in a non-speaking cameo a few times since his original appearance, but “Pin Girl” marks the first time the character has been brought back in a proper capacity.
Earlier this year, one of the writers and former showrunners of The simpsons explained a bizarre mistake in one of his early episodes.
Last month it was reported that an episode of the series had been removed from Disney Plus in Hong Kong because of a joke about “forced labor camps” in China.
Subsequently, during a practice class, Marge is shown images of China’s Great Wall when her teacher says, “Behold the wonders of China. Bitcoin mines, forced labor camps where kids make smartphones.”
