Bart Simpson is a cartoon character from the hit Fox animated television series The Simpsons, created by Matt Groening, and part of its titular Simpson family. The ten-year-old son of Homer and Marge and brother of Lisa and Maggie, Bart is the mischievous and rebellious troublemaker of the family, who disrespects the authority of his parents and teacher, pulls pranks at his school, rides his skateboard through town, and watches much television. During the first two seasons of the show, he became its breakout character, so much that an entire mania revolved around him.


Bart Simpson first appeared in the parade in 1990 and was the third to last character balloon in the parade that year. Unlike the other balloons made since 1984, Raven Aerostar didn't make this balloon, instead another company did.

A digital version appeared during the Thanksgiving update of The Simpsons: Tapped Out mobile app in 2015.


In 1993, Bart's T-shirt was ripped open by an streetlight due to a windy weather.

In the 1995 parade, Bart almost got ripped in the face.
