Adolescent bullying is the new childhood obesity: Something that's been going on forever, but only recently became a popular sympathetic cause thanks to some celebrity-driven awareness initiatives. But to be fair, Hollywood has been calling attention to bullies since the days before the remote control. (Yes, there really was a time when TVs didn't have remotes.) We can go as far back as Little Rascals to find bullies on TV, but here are some more recent bullies of all ages:
Nelson Muntz (The Simpsons)
More often than not, your paint-by-numbers schoolyard bully eventually has that moment when he or she comes to grips with the real reason behind their bullying, changes their ways, and makes friends with at least one of their victims. Nelson is not that bully.
While he and Bart Simpson have had a few moments of collaboration and some experiences that could even be called friendly over the last 20 years they've been in the fourth grade, it never lasts long. Most of the time when Nelson shows up, somebody is getting punched in the stomach. Even after he was publicly humiliated by a very tall man in a very tiny car in one episode, Nelson went right back to terrorizing Springfield Elementary and sparing no citizen of Springfield his signature "ha-ha!"
