22 Characters Under Threat Now That Harry Shearer Has Left "The Simpsons"

1. Mr Burns

The Simpsons / Gracie Films

Memorable line: "Don't pooh-pooh a nickel, Lisa. A nickel will get buy you a steak and kidney pie, a cup of coffee, a slice of cheesecake, and a newsreel. With enough change left over to ride the trolley from Battery Park to the polo grounds."

4. Jasper Beardly

The Simpsons / Gracie Films

Memorable line: "Talking out of turn, that's a paddlin'. Looking out the window, that's a paddlin'. Staring at my sandles, that's a paddlin'. Paddling the school canoe, oh you better believe that's a paddlin'."

10. Ned Flanders

The Simpsons / Gracie Films

Memorable line: (speaking to Homer whilst wearing a ski-suit) "It feels like I'm wearing nothing at all. Nothing at all. Nothing at ALL."

13. God

The Simpsons / Gracie Films / Via

Memorable line: "Oh, don't tell me about family suffering. My son went down to Earth. I don't know what you people did to him, but he hasn't been the same since."

21. Dewey Largo

The Simpsons / Gracie Films

Memorable line: "That was a close one, Lisa, but you made it. No, you regained consciousness. Alison won first chair. And believe me, THIS IS NOT A DREAM."

Shearer's also voiced Herman Hermann, Bill Clinton, King Snorky, Mr Black, Count Fudge-ula, John Travolta, Bob Dole, George Cauldron, Admiral Man, Birch Barlow, Jebediah Springfield, and many, many others.
