Years ago, Stanley DeGroot was a chef at Springfield Elementary and he was often ridiculed by the kids because he had failed to graduate from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Stanley bore the tauntings for as long as he could, yet gradually the constant abuse caused him to snap.

He is voiced by Dan Castellaneta, who also voices Homer and his clones.


In this legend, Stanley went totally psychotic and grabbed a cleaver one day amidst a crowd of his abusers, deciding to add a new item onto the menu: a dish he named "Kids' Head Soup!" Stanley ran round the school butchering and brutally dismembering the children who had mocked him until there were none of them left. While tasting his new soup, Stanley gleefully remarked "Needs more girl!" and threw in a girl's head. Stanley then presented the soup to the staff the next day for lunch, and they were horrified to discover that their lunch contained parts of their students.


Stanley was immediately arrested for murder and executed by hanging, yet the day after when the officials went back to check out his grave, the whole cemetery was missing!

Haunting of Dark Stanley

Stanley DeGroot was now renamed "Dark Stanley" and returned from the grave, so said the legend, and harvested the brains of the living, regardless of whether they were child or adult, and he took them back to the Netherworld for his "Soup of Sorrow."

Eventually, despite no-one ever having seen him, every single child in Springfield Elementary believed and dreaded this ghost, and when Bart Simpson, who was narrating the story, apparently dropped dead with his skull sliced open and his brain spilling out, the kids believed Dark Stanley had appeared, and all ran screaming out of the school.

Bart, who had just been telling this story to get some lunch (Homer had forgotten to give his own kids proper lunches) out of his mates, had actually disguised his "brains" with spaghetti and tomato sauce, and calmly cleaned himself down and helped himself to his classmates' lunches in the empty cafeteria.


Even though Bart Simpson just invented the story to get some lunch, he had to see a psychiatrist, as Principal Skinner recommended to Homer. Homer went to take Bart to a psychiatrist whom he actually befriended. After many days together, both had grown fond of each other and when Bart had told the psychiatrist all he needed to tell her, he left abruptly, feeling relieved to get all his family problems off his chest. Afterwards, the psychiatrist went to her own psychiatrist, who suggested that she was replacing Bart with her own son, who had been murdered by Dark Stanley, to which she said she wasn't ready to go there yet. This statement implies that Dark Stanley may have actually existed.
