- This article is about Tony Hawk the character. For the real-life skateboarder and guest voice actor, please see Tony Hawk.
"Tony" Hawk is a professional skateboarder who once befriended Bart.
When Bart became emancipated and moved into his own apartment, he found (to his delight) that Tony Hawk was one of his neighbors. Tony threw huge parties in his apartment just above Bart along with Blink-182. Bart soon came to idolize Hawk, much to Homer's annoyance and frustration because he couldn't compete with Hawk's coolness.
Homer later challenged Hawk to a skate-off in order to show him up, figuring that he would easily win with the aid of a super-powered skateboard that could make anyone do amazing stunts. Hawk, for his part, got annoyed that Homer was not just beating him, but embarrassing him due to the special skateboard. In the end Homer and Bart made up with the help of Hawk.
Tony Hawk is an American professional skateboarder. Hawk gained significant fame for completing the first 900 as well as his licensed video game titles distributed by Activision.
