Kyle Broflovski [a] is a main character in the animated television series South Park. He is voiced by and loosely based on co-creator Matt Stone. He debuted on television when South Park first aired on August 13, , after having first appeared in The Spirit of Christmas shorts created by Stone and long-time collaborator Trey Parker in Jesus vs. Frosty and Jesus vs. Kyle is an elementary school student who commonly has extraordinary experiences not typical of conventional small-town life in his fictional hometown of South Park, Colorado. Kyle is distinctive as one of the few Jewish children on the show, and because of this, he often feels like an outsider amongst the core group of characters. His portrayal in this role is often dealt with satirically, and has elicited both praise and criticism from Jewish viewers. Like the other South Park characters, Kyle is animated by computer in a way to emulate the show's original method of cutout animation.
Once described as a "little freckled kid that looks like a football", Sir Ike Broflovski is Kyle 's beloved little brother and the apple of his parents' eye. Ike has had no shortage of adventure and mischief in his life, and while he may be far more intelligent than he appears, he can always count on his big brother Kyle being there to protect him While the two of them may play the increasingly sparse game of 'Kick the Baby', it's clear that Ike and Kyle will always have each other's back. Although he doesn't always show it, Ike is a certified genius - despite being three years old, he now attends South Park Elementary alongside the Kindergarten class, many of them two years his senior. With a little help from classmate Sally Bands , he was narrowly elected Class President over the expected victor, Filmore Anderson , who has remained Ike's chief rival and bully in class to this day. Ike also had a passionate, romantic sexual affair with their teacher, Ms. Stephenson , that resulted in her arrest and subsequent death. In the wake of the disastrous Cola Wars, he was placed up for adoption, and the Broflovski family welcomed him into their home, floppy head and all. Kyle discovered this truth as a third grader. Due to being raised away from his people, Ike isn't fully in touch with their traditions, such as singing Chuck Mangione every day, but he tries to stand with his people, whether it's to protest or rescue the Princess of Canada.
Stan : Well, we can't do anything for now That fat bitch won't let us! Stan : I-I said that rabbits eat lettuce! Crabtree : Oh Well yes, they certainly do Kyle : Aww, dammit! My little brother's trying to follow me to school again!
There is more to this crudely animated program than meets the eye. These are moments that help make the characters more sympathetic and give an emotional core, along with a sense of "weight" to the show. Kyle's younger brother Ike is on the verge of getting circumcised, and the Broflovski boys are having none of it. Kyle and especially Ike are both too young to quite know what this entails, assuming the procedure is far more gruesome than it is. Despite their youthful naivety involving the procedure, this is a heartfelt moment for Kyle, as it shows he's willing to protect his brother regardless of not being related. It's a cute, cheeky reminder that family kinship transcends blood. The quiet Kenny never received much depth or development outside of being the kid who ended up killed at the end of each episode. Even in more recent, more nuanced episodes, he isn't given much "to do.
