Kip Drordy, voiced by Trey Parker, is a third grader at South Park Elementary. His first, and so far only, appearance as a major character was in "You Have 0 Friends". Although apparently only a one-off character, he is briefly seen as a background character in the playground scene in "HUMANCENTiPAD".

Background

Character

Kip seems to be an outcast, who has no friends at all because everyone made fun of his appearance. In fact, he went six months on Facebook without a single friend request. As a result, he seemed to suffer from severe depression, and would sit at his computer all day, waiting and praying for a friend request. This changed when Kyle Broflovski felt sorry for him and added him as a result.

Kyle's addition overjoyed Kip who began thinking of Kyle's Facebook friendship as a much deeper thing, and began to address Kyle as his best friend, where sometimes he would wait for hours just staring at his Facebook page just for Kyle to reply and bring his computer to the movies while taking pictures of himself with Kyle's Facebook page. He would then proceed to tell his parents all the inane details of their collective Facebook updates.

Unfortunately, Kip's status as a loser negatively affected Kyle who lost all his facebook friends except for Kip and later Stan (who Kyle had to beg to friend him). Eric Cartman meanwhile features Kyle and Kip on his Podcast: Mad Friends, in which he informs Facebook participants to steer clear of Kyle because of his association with Kip. Although reluctant at first, Kyle eventually removes him as a friend, resulting in Kip falling back into his depressed state. However by the end of the episode he had 845,323 friends on Facebook, due to Stan shutting down his profile and transferring his friends to Kip, thus restoring Kip to being overjoyed.

Appearance

He has brown hair that is long, scraggly and parted down the middle. He wears a green shirt, and blue shorts. His hair also seems to be receding on the forehead, like his father. He has a slight lisp and, he either has an over-bite or is simply biting on his lower lip. He is also stocky. Overall, Kip Drordy seems to share a resemblance to Rocky Dennis of the film Mask. When depressed he positions himself in the exact same way as a "Crying Clown" poster on his wall.

Personality

He is an outcast. This has negatively affected his personality in many ways. He seems extremely insecure, becoming depressed over having no Facebook friends in "You Have 0 Friends". He also seems obsessive, even taking his computer to the movies in order to "watch a movie with Kyle" (Kyle was, at the time, his only Facebook friend).

Family

Mr. & Mrs. Drordy

Kip has a mother and a father, whose names are currently unknown. They both appear to be extremely loving and supportive of their son, who both seem to realize much to their sorrow he's an outcast with no friends. As such they are willing to listen to his insane rambling about Kyle. They may or may not realize that Kip is talking about Facebook, and not an actual human friend.

Relationships

Kyle Broflovski

In "You Have 0 Friends", Kyle was Kip's one and only Facebook friend. Kip grew obsessive over Kyle, later becoming extremely depressed when Kyle "unfriended" him. They did not have a real-life friendship.

Trivia

  • Kip's Birthday is seen on his profile as July 17, 2003. This would make him 6 years, 8 months, and 22 days old at the episode's premier, and making him well below Facebook's established rule of users needing to be 13 years old. This was also ignored for the rest of the episode's underage characters.

  • Although Kip was never mentioned again in the later episodes, he occasionally makes appearances as a background character who always hangs out alone. He is also used as a 'filler' character.
