~ Adil contacting his base

Adil Hoxha is one of the three main antagonists (along with his boss and Cesar & Ugolín) in The Simpsons episode "The Crepes of Wrath".

He is voiced by Tress MacNeille.


Once Bart is sent to France, the Simpson family must take another student in exchange while he is away. At first, Homer is suspicious that some other family in France could also be getting rid of a mischievous son, but he accepts when Skinner tells him that they would be receiving an Albanian student (which Homer mistakes for albino).

Adil, much to Homer's delight, shows great interest in his job at the nuclear power plant, and he has no trouble in taking him to his office and showing him the different dependencies, which Adil uses to gather information and take pictures for his country. He turns Bart's treehouse into an operations center, which he uses to communicate with his base and transfer important data over to it.

In the end, Adil is captured during an FBI raid when Homer, who was talking with one of the agents, waves at him from the street, inadvertently giving away his position. He is sent back to his country in exchange for an American kid who was working as a spy in Albania. As he gets picked up by his boss at the airport and into the plane, a saddened Homer bids his farewell: "Good-bye Adil, I'll send you those Civil Defense plans you wanted!". A few moments later, Bart returns from France to his family in a happy reencounter.

Adil comes off as an easy going and helpful person, which tricks other people into trusting him so he can carry out his job more efficiently.


  • Adil's last name, Hoxha, is derived from Albanian Communist leader Enver Hoxha, who ruled that country from 1944 until his death in 1985.
