General Plymkin is a fat, bald US Army Officer who was in charge of planning and carrying out the assault on Canada, he is also very racist and uses black soldiers to protect the tanks and planes by strapping them to the sides of the vehicles. The way in which he briefed the troops parodied that of the briefing scene in Return of the Jedi.
He wears a dark green jacket with two pockets, his ribbons and his rank on it. Underneath that he wears a white shirt and a tie. His trousers are also dark green and he has black shoes. One of his most notable traits is the fact he always has a cigar in his mouth, this is most probably a nod to the British Prime-Minister Winston Churchill.
He is also a racist, having commissioned a plan, Operation Human Shield, against the Canadians, in which there are black soldiers in front of the white soldiers and black soldiers strapped on to tanks and airplanes manned by whites. This plan fails when Chef rallies the black troops out of harms way when the Canadians attack. He survived the American-Canadian war and appeared in Afghanistan in the episode "Osama Bin Laden Has Farty Pants" shows him as the commander of the U.S. Troops deployed there and him and his troops save 'Stevie Nicks.'
