Question about Jimbo

Postby CoolCoates » Fri Jun 30, 2006 10:30 am

Anyone ever noticed how Jimbo is Stans uncle (he refers to him as Uncle Jimbo)

Does this make Randy & Jimbo brothers, or Stan's mum (or mom as you americans would say it) & Jimbo brother and sister?

They never really show them as brothers or brother & sister

Cousins, probably.

Or he could be a close family friend whom you might call uncle when you're a kid, but later find out that he's your father's best friend.

Yes.

Jimbo Kern is Randy Marsh's half-brother, hence the different surnames. Toodle pip, etc.

PS - hopefully an incensed do-gooder posing as a self-appointed Forum Traffic Cop will politely yet snidely tell you to 'post in the correct section'. If so, ignore them.

You should've been expecting a post like this when you posted that, but...

True, could just be a family friend, but on a few episodes Jimbo calls Stan his nephew. I know kids often call close family friends their uncles, but they dont usually call the kids their nephew. Or do they??

I agree with BigWill there. I call my cousin's kids my neice and nefew, and they call me Uncle Corbin or Uncle Goth. :)

I'm going with half-brother.

From Ask Matt, November 15th, 2005 (the night before Trapped aired):

Q. From wallyosu -> If Jimbo is Randy's brother, why do they have different last names?
A. They are half brothers with different dads. I think that's the only way that works out right?

Um, source as iceiwyind just stated, is the online interview with Matt Stone. I realize he's just a co-creator and co-producer of South Park and the VOICE of Jimbo Kern, but I'll still take his word on the semi-sibling status of Randy and Jimbo as gospel truth. Unless Nall and Jolon were bored one day and made the whole thing up.

Learn more fun facts from the Scriptorium. Keep re-reading until you learn 'em:
