Herman lost his right arm when a speeding truck ripped it off his body. There are two stories regarding how it happened. One states it was torn off when he stuck it out a window of a school bus, while the other claims he lost his arm when a Springfield Animal Control truck sped by as Herman hailed a car. (Episode “To Cur, With Love”).

Herman is a skilled military tactician. He is a friend of Abe Simpson.  and plays poker with Abe’s son, Homer Simpson. Herman prefers eating insects (Insectivorian), and is a member of The Stonecutters Lodge.

NOTE: In The Simpsons Comics #100 – “Clip Clip Hooray!”, Herman tells people that he lost his arm in an accident, but actually wore it down to a nub by drawing so many comics.
