Larry was born in 1940 and grew up in an orphanage before getting a job at a souvenir stand. Whilst working at the souvenir stand, he once saw a blimp. He tracked down his father Charles Montgomery Burns and ended up getting a job at the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant. His uncouth manner, lack of intelligence and love of drinking meant that he had many things in common with Homer Simpson, and they become good friends, but this angered Mr. Burns. Burns disowns him for the second time and he returns home, realizing he had not told his wife and children where he was for a week. He is also the husband of a female circus performer who is the mother of his three children.
Behind the LaughterEdit
Larry Burns was voiced by stand-up comedian Rodney Dangerfield and has appeared in two episodes.
In the episode Bart Gets a "Z", a Rodney Dangerfield-style figure appears in a film-within-a-film with a plot similar to Dangerfield's 1986 college-comedy Back to School. Although this figure shares some characteristics with Larry Burns, the character designs for each are clearly different. The quasi-Dangerfield figure is voiced by Hank Azaria.
