Gerald Broflovski is a character in the animated series South Park. He is Kyle Broflovski's father (named after Matt Stone's father, Gerald W. Stone), and he is a lawyer. His birthday is October 4th, presumbly 1960.


He wears a magenta yarmulke, a beige jacket with a blue shirt underneath, and forest green trousers. He has brown hair with sideburns and a full beard trimmed into a point at the chin and shaved alongside the lips so that his mustache does not connect. He has never been seen without his yarmulke on, except in the episode Major Boobage which confirms that he is balding. The fact that he is always seen wearing it also implies that he practices Orthodox Judaism.

Gerald and Kenny fight

Gerald loses his yarmulke while fighting with Kenny, revealing he is balding.

For special occasion, Gerald's outfit and yarmulke is in black and dark grey color.


Gerald seems to be the most caring and rational of all the male parents in South Park. He is concerned with Kyle learning about moral values, and about the environment and current events. He is typically portrayed to be kind and friendly, though he can be stubborn, sarcastic and impolite at times.

Gerald Broflovski suffers from impotence. That may be the reason why Ike is an adoptee.

In the episode Red Man's Greed, he confesses to Randy that he has a gambling problem.

In "Major Boobage", it is revealed that he used to get high off of cat urine when he was ten years younger.

in "Mr. Garrison's Fancy New Vagina" it is revealed he loves dolphins


Gerald is a lawyer and a member of City Council as the city attorney. He has handled such legal matters as Getting Chef's name put on the album for Stinky Britches in Chef Aid. He also helped Eric Cartman to successfully sue Stan after he called him an "Ass sucker". Then everyone started suing each other, causing the school to go bankrupt. In the episode "Major Boobage", he gets a law passed that cats are to be illegal in South Park.

Vehicles Owned

Gerald was he is seen driving a car best resembling a purple-red 2002 Lincoln Navigator in "Asspen", and in "Smug Alert!" he drives a Toyonda Pious with a license plate reading "1TMYMPG"( 1T=Want, so together equals: Want my Miles Per Gallon?)


Gerald's surname suggests Polish ancestry, though in the episode "Butt Out", Cartman referred to Kyle and his family as "Serbian Jews" .

Sheila Broflovski

She is Gerald's overweight, overbearing wife. They seem to have a comfortable relationship, though he frequently gets annoyed by her habit of making a mountain out of a molehill, and her general nosiness. Curiously though, he didn't mind it when she had sex with Chef in Chef Aid, and cheerfully asked her how she liked it after Chef had left. Also, he couldn't get aroused by her in Spontaneous Combustion, but later got turned on by three young women (who had stripped in his office) who were angry at Randy Marsh for getting skin cancer all over their 'hot bodies.' The two were having intercourse in Dead Celebrities when they were interrupted with Ike Broflovski
