|First Appearance||"Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire"|
|Voiced By|| Jo Ann Harris |
Richard appears frequently in events involving the Springfield children. After school as shown in the second and third opening sequence, he often participates in the school band and plays catch with Milhouse and Lewis. In earlier seasons, he, along with Lewis, was commonly seen hanging out with Bart and Milhouse and was considered to be one of Bart's best friends and was often involved in his mischief. However, as Bart's time with Milhouse increased and as Nelson went from being an antagonist to a friend of Bart, Richard became far less often seen with Bart and was relegated to a background character who rarely speaks.
He usually wears a leather jacket. His hair usually stays gray, but for unknown reasons it will sometimes randomly be brown, black, blonde, and others.
Richard doesn't appear to be a very good student, for in the opening of the episode Bart Gets a "Z", Mrs. Krabappel gave him an F in his Math exam. He also was involved with Bart's mischievous deeds and was part of the fourth graders that were going to brawl with the fifth graders.
