During a school competition Lisa has Bart sabotage Allison's Tell-Tale Heart diorama with a cow's heart in a box and hides the original diorama beneath a floorboard.
Wracked with guilt, Lisa returns Allison's real diorama.
He is voiced by Jon Lovitz, except for a brief appearance in "The Front" (1993), in which he was voiced by Dan Castellaneta.
Ziff first appears in "The Way We Was" (1991), in which he takes a young Marge Bouvier to senior prom.
Lisa and Allison both lose to Ralph Wiggum and his Star Wars figurines.
Afterwards, Lisa apologizes and the two make amends.
The show is a huge hit that ruins Krusty's career, but Bart then ruins Gabbo's future by capturing him making a rude comment on TV.
The pair are later reduced to low-paying work such as a show at an Indian casino.
Actor George Takei originally voiced Akira in "One Fish, Two Fish, Blowfish, Blue Fish".
Since Akira's speaking role in "When Flanders Failed", Hank Azaria has voiced the character, doing an impression of Takei for the voice.
She debuts in "$pringfield", where it is explained she was captured from the wild by Ernst and Gunter. Arnie Pye (voiced by Dan Castellaneta) is a disgruntled, somewhat eccentric helicopter traffic reporter for Springfield's KBBL-TV (Channel 6).
