Adolf Hitler (April 20, 1889 – April 30, 1945) was a Military commander, Chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945, and the leader of the Nazi Party. He is often referenced and occasionally appears usually in flashback. He appeared mainly in flashbacks, also mentioned a lot on The Simpsons and he was shown in an Itchy and Scratchy cartoon once.

Adolf takes the bear as his own, however when trapped in his bunker at Berlin he blames the bear. Somehow Bobo escapes this bunker. Bart calls Argentina, coincidently calling a very elderly Adolf Hitler. He attempts to answer the phone but does not reach it in time. Hitler also stops and takes Lisa's watch off her left wrist.
