You are correct about the ones I did not note. They are basically "Western neutral" accents.Hi, I think that i have some difficulties differentiating some USA accents specially between the West/Chicago/New York accents. But I can certainly tell if a person is from the South, and most of the times can recognize New England and Canadian accents, but I thought that given that I have been watching a lot of The Simpsons episodes and there are still a lot to watch, I could benefit from knowing which accent every cahracter employs, so I'm ggoing to say which accent I think they employ and I'd be very happy if you people can correct me. Here we go: 8)
Mr Burns: Not sure, but New England? Original,old-fashioned. This is to show how old he is. Not a specific accent used today.
Moe the bartender: Not sure, East Coast? Somewhat like a New York accent
Ned Flanders: West
Principal Skinner: West
Grampa Simpson: West
OttoMan bus driver: West He speaks in a "slang accent", which is sometimes called a "surfer accent", because surfers used to try to talk this way.
Krusty: New York? He uses a very strange and comical accent with a very gruff voice. I would say New York or Northeastern would come closest when he is not doing his show and just talking normally.
Barney Gumble, barfly: New York? Comical accent. No real-life equivalent
Nelson Muntz, bully: West Comical accent. No real-life equivalent
