The Many Deaths Of

Hans Moleman


[What's New] [Description] [Death-o-meter] [Appearances] [Possible Deaths] [Links] [Comments] [Disclaimer]


Hans Moleman can be seen on the FOX Network television show The Simpsons. Hans is a short feeble man with skin "like a peanut" and wears extremely thick eyeglasses. He states that he is 31 years old, but looks and acts more like 131. His luck is terribly bad, and he seems to die quite often...which is one of the points of this keep a running count of how many times he has died!

I ordinarily don't find humor in old men with bad luck, but then again, Hans is not an ordinary kind of guy. Come to think of it, he's not a guy at all...he's actually a cartoon...which, I believe, makes it ok for me to laugh at his misfortune.

The Hans Moleman "Death-o-meter"

The Death-o-meter is designed to keep up with the number of times Hans has died on the show. While his deaths are not actually viewed, it can be assumed that death ensued. In other words, this number may be up for feel free to discuss it!

(Total count as of March 05, 2000)
