About[edit | edit source]

Norbert "Zach" Van Houten is the Danish uncle of Milhouse. Bart remembers that Milhouse gets Danish butter cookies every Christmas from Solvang, California. When Kirk and Luann are missing and presumed to be dead after they decide to remarry and their cruise liner capsizes (only to be revealed that they are alive and well on an island), Bart decides to help Milhouse reconnect with his Uncle Norbert, a rugged, macho Indiana Jones-like adventurer who is proud of his Danish heritage, and strongly dislikes his Dutch Van Houten relatives.
