Ralph Wiggum


Ralph Wiggum

] (although he is referred to by his last name of Wiggum in "Kamp Krusty" before). Ralph was named after comedian Jackie Gleason's character on "The Honeymooners" Ralph Kramden. [cite news|url=http://www.mtv.com/movies/news/articles/1565538/20070725/story.jhtml|title='Simpsons' Trivia, From Swearing Lisa To 'Burns-Sexual' Smithers|accessdate=2007-07-29|date=2007-07-26|author=Larry Carroll|publisher=MTV] Matt Groening considers any lines for Ralph "really hard to write."

Nancy Cartwright raises her eyebrows whenever she performs Ralph's voice.

The original Ralph design makes a cameo appearance in the episodes "Sweet Seymour Skinner's Baadasssss Song" and "Bart's Comet" as well as in Simpsons Comics #59.

Popular culture

With a combination of his hilarious commentary and his endearingly innocent character, Ralph eventually became one of the show's most popular characters. Ralph's popularity as a character has even spread so far that the rock band The Bloodhound Gang made a song called "Ralph Wiggum," dedicated to the character and composed solely of some of his most famous quotes for lyrics. The song can be found on their album "Hefty Fine". Show creator Matt Groening has stated that whenever someone asks who writes specific characters (a common misconception about the writing process), writers will most likely take credit for writing for Ralph.
