In the popular animated TV show "The Simpsons," Mr. Burns is the owner of the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant and one of the recurring antagonists. In the episode "Three-eyed Fish," which aired in 1990 during the show's second season, Mr. Burns is humorously referred to as "Radioactive Mr. Burns."
In this episode, a three-eyed fish named Blinky is discovered in the waters near the nuclear power plant, leading to environmental concerns and negative publicity for Mr. Burns and his company. The episode satirizes the real-world issue of nuclear power plant safety and its potential impact on the environment.
Despite the nickname "Radioactive Mr. Burns" from this specific episode, throughout the series, Mr. Burns is often depicted as a wealthy, selfish, and eccentric character who prioritizes profit over the well-being of others and the environment. His greed and disregard for the town's residents often lead to humorous and absurd situations in various episodes.
