It has also been featured in the non-canon Simpsons Comics, where it was revealed that an Olmec priest named X'T'H'K'K lived in the Head, awaiting the judgment of Xt'Tapalatakettle on mankind. Lisa became envious of his bond with Snowball II, and together with Bart, tricked him into thinking that Xt'Tapalatakettle had judged mankind to be poor. Mr. Burns gave him a plane ticket home in order to hold onto his Oldest Man in Springfield Award. Incidentally, Xt'Tapalatakettle returned just after the priest left, but learnt of donuts, beer and television, leading him to deem mankind worthy.
Also, in an comic story entitled Sideshow Simpsons, Homer attempts to make a rec room in his basement. However, Marge explains to him that the head takes up too much room, and they attempt to sell it, which leads to disastrous results. At the end, Homer, who is convinced their bad luck in selling the head was due to the angry god, decides to make peace with it and keep it. It is also revealed that it has a coffee stain on its nose. Homer kept it in fear that Mr. Burns would drop by.
