|Lard Lad Donuts|
|First Appearance||"Treehouse of Horror IV"|
Lard Lad Donuts is a donut shop in the town of Springfield, The store's mascot, Lard Lad, stands in the parking lot of the building holding a giant donut.
The store is a part of the Fast-Food Boulevard that seems to be famous in policemen terms, as Chief Wiggum is often seen eating some. It's generally an estimated 3 meter tall donut store with an estimated 8 meter tall mascot of a young boy proudly holding a donut. The name and the statue of the eponymous boy are likely references to Big Boy restaurants.
In one comic, he had to find missing holes from donuts for a Lard Lad donut store. In level 7 of The Simpsons: Hit and Run, he is seen with red eyes. In The Simpsons Game, he is a boss. Lard Lad Donuts is shut down by a health inspector in The Simpsons Movie, and the Lard Lad is painted in different colors and seen later in the movie during the dome sequence. The former was disproved in "E. Pluribus Wiggum" when an explosion blows the correctly colored Lard Lad's head off.
As part of the government's pledge to purge Springfield of pollution and clean the lake, Lard Lad Donuts' was also shut down by health inspectors. The store hosted a free donut extravanganza. Unfortunately, this distracts Homer Simpson, who decided to dump a large silo full of pig feces into Lake Springfield instead of having to wait for a long line at a waste disposal facility. This ultimately leads to Trappuccino.
Treehouse of HorrorEdit
A similar occurance happened in "Treehouse of Horror XXIV", in the opening sequence a bolt lightening stuck the Lard Lad statue and he crushed two cars but was subsequently eaten by a giant cyclops resembling Chief Wiggum.
