Milhouse van Houten

Milhouse van Houten

Milhouse Mussolini Van Houten, or as he is commonly know, Milhous van Houten is a fictional character who appears in Matt Groening's Simpsons episodes. His voice is portrayed by Pamela Hayden who also produces sounds for Jimbo Jones, Rod Flanders, Clancy Wiggum and Janey Powell. He is commonly portrayed alongside Bart Simpson and is his best friend. Currently in the fourth grade at Springfield elementary he is often picked on because of his glasses, which is shown in the episode Das Bus, a spin-off of the popular book Lord of the Flies.

Milhouse's sexuality is often called into question and is a difficult topic. He is dominantly seen as gay, shown through him enjoying cross dressing. He is seen to have a relationship with Lisa in the future but it is seen as imaginary by Marge. He sees himself as a "big sister" and is this that causes his relationships to break down. His sexuality is probably like this as his parents, Kirk van Houten and Louane van Houten broke up in his early years.

He was named Milhouse after Robert Nixon's nickname, Milhous.
