- “You got a fresh sound. It'll play well at this school.”
- ―Cool kid
The cool kid is an unnamed fourth grade student at Cypress Creek Elementary School.
On his first day at Cypress Creek Elementary School, Bart does some armpit noises, which impresses his new classmates including the cool kid.
He praised Bart for the sound. It's likely Bart became friends with him and possibly the other kids in the class, before he was put in remedial class.
After this episode, he's been seen at Springfield Elementary School and has appeared in other places around Springfield.
This indicates his parents, along with the other children there, have divorced parents and that he was visiting his father in that episode.
The cool kid's first appearance he had black hair with bangs. He wears a blue shirt with red and orange graphics, purple shorts, and gray and white shoes.
He also wears rounded lensed sunglasses. In his recent appearances, his sunglasses became reading glasses. His shirt is now light blue and he wears olive green shorts.
The graphics on his shirt are now red, instead of being mixed with orange. He also wears red and white shoes and has light brown hair.
- It's a mystery as to why he attends Springfield Elementary School.
- In Ice Cream of Margie (with the Light Blue Hair) he was seen not wearing his glasses, which is the only time he's seen not wearing them.
- In the same episode, it's possible he may have been standing next to his sister.
- He is one of the few children in The Simpsons voiced by a male, in his case its Hank Azaria
