The Simpsons

The Fox network's most successful series to date was a spin-off from "The Tracey Ullman Show" in which originally appeared as one minute shorts. The executive producers of that series, James L. Brooks and Sam Simon decided that these characters could support a half an hour series. It is now reported as the longest animated series in prime-time network television.

Character Bio

Kearney photo
Kearney Zzyzwicz is one of the school bullies.

Kearney is the toughest (and the ugliest) bully in Nelson's gang. Kearney is also pretty fat for his age.

Kearney has a buzz haircut.

Kearney wears a white short-sleeved torn shirt (sometimes red with 1 white stripe at the bottom of the shirt, as shown in the video game, The Simpsons Hit & Run), dark blue torn short pants, dark blue shoes, and dog collar bangles on his wrists.

Kearney resembles somewhat of a caveman.

In "24 Minutes," it is revealed that Kearney owns his own tuxedo, although he isn't seen wearing it. He is 22 years old. He has a father named Kearney, Sr., a mother named Mrs. Zzyzwicz. Although he looks (and sounds) to be around Jimbo or Dolph Starbeam's age, Kearney has a young son named Little Kearney (it is not known, who the mother is, although Kearney once says that his divorce was hard on his kid, but he got through it okay), the only present Springfield Elementary School student, that celebrated the United States Bicentennial (that is, was alive in 1976) and shaves his beard. Strangely (in an episode), he needed a fake ID to purchase beer.

It is speculated that Kearney is Nelson's second-in-command, next to Jimbo, but in one episode, he rose through the bullying ranks to become the president.

In a future episode, Kearney is seen as the Vice-Principal of Springfield Elementary. In the episode, "Whacking Day," Kearney is seen, smoking in the room, where Bart, Nelson, Jimbo, and Dolph are trapped in, during Superintendent Chalmer's visit.

In a recent episode, Otto stated that he and Kearney both went to Springfield Elementary School together, only for Kearney to reply that they are unable to teach him. He is voiced by Nancy Cartwright.
