Bart Simpson is the most misunderstood Simpson. He is constantly frustrated by the narrow-minded people of Springfield who judge him merely by his thoughts and actions. At heart, he's just a good kid with a few bad ideas, a couple of really bad ideas and one or two that are still being reviewed by the Springfield district attorney. Basically, Bart is no different from any ordinary 4th grader. he enjoys skateboarding, bubble gum, squishees from the Kwik-E-Mart, pranks, and single-handed bringing Sideshow Bob to justice on many numerous occasions.

Labeled an "underachiever" by authority figures, Bart rides an academic roller coaster, his grades running the loop-de-loop from F to D-minus, and back again. But he can be ingenious when the chips are down, as long as his ingenuity is never applied to anything school-related.
