Tanya is one of Lisa's friends, often playing with her and Janey or picking flowers to create things. She attended the Enriched Learning Center for Gifted Children, and was in the same class as Bart when he swapped his and Martin's test so he wouldn't fail. She looks like a young Marge. She was also seen in Lisa's math class when the school was split into two groups: boys and girls.
Behind the Laughter
Tanya was considered a major character during the creation of Rainy Day Fun Book and Fun in the Sun Book, even getting a character in a cut-out theater; however, she never received a big role in the show and can only be seen in backgrounds.
