Corky James "Jimbo" Jones, voiced by Pamela Hayden and originally by Tress MacNeille in his first appearance in the first season episode "The Telltale Head" is a lowlife who wears a purple knit cap and a black T-shirt emblazoned with a menacing skull. He can often be seen hanging around Kearney, Dolph, and sometimes Nelson. He is generally acknowledged as the leader of this clique. He enjoys intimidating his schoolmates and shoplifting. It is hinted that he comes from a well-off family, most notably in season six's "The PTA Disbands" when — with the school closed for a teacher's strike - he and his mother watch soap operas and sip tea together in a very nice living room. In season four's New Kid on the Block, he briefly dates Laura Powers until she leaves him for crying in front of Moe for being threatened when Bart exposed his true personality by prank-calling him, as she viewed him as not man enough. In season seven's "Bart the Fink", Bart discovers that Jimbo's real name is Corky. In one episode, it is revealed that he is bald on top, with hair around it. Jimbo's other known aliases are Jamesbo, Dr. J and Hector Gutierrez. Jimbo is named for executive producer James L. Brooks. Jimbo runs for mayor in the Season 17 episode "See Homer Run", with a campaign slogan of "Tough on Nerds. Tougher on Dorks."
