Homer Simpson.. Hispanidad?

Simpsons News — Posted 04 Jun, 2003 by Scott

Hey fans, a recent article released by the United Press expresses how much Hispanic influence Homer and the show has. "While preparing for a night out on the town with his wife, Marge, Homer Simpson hummed a tune to himself while wiggling his rather rotund bottom around a "dance floor" that was really his bathroom."..."Homer's gyrations (witnessed by fans of the animated television series "The Simpsons" back in the show's first season) were actually that Spanish-influenced dance craze of the '50's -- the Mambo." "Who else would make a semi-regular character out of Bumble Bee Guy, the constantly costumed principal on-air talent at KMEX, the cartoon Springfield's Spanish-language television station? Inspired by Roberto Gomez Bolaros, who performed in many low-grade comedies on Mexico's Televisa network under the name Chespirito, Bumble Bee Guy's over-dramatic acting and pidgin Spanish that even the whitest of Anglos can understand has often helped underscore a gag on the show." From Bumble Bee guy to Tito Puente to even Krusty taking the kids to Tijuana (the happiest place on earth)... read all about it
