|Occupation||Hunter/Gun dealer/TV show host|
Ned Gerblansky is a character on the series South Park. He is best known for being a hunter where he and his partner, Jimbo Kern, go off and hunt together. They also host their own TV show called Huntin' and Killin. He is missing his right arm and talks through a voice box.
Please visit his article on the South Park Archives for more information.
Ned has short, messy, gray-brown hair. He has a small mustache and goatee, a left arm, and missing right arm. He wears a camouflage shirt, light blue jeans, sunglasses, and a black headband. Ned is usually straight-faced. He's very skinny and noticeably smaller than the other South Park adults.
Ned Gerblansky and his best friend Jimbo Kern represent South Park's population of stereotypical "hicks". They are obsessed with large trucks, beer, guns, explosions, and killing animals. They detest "liberals" and circumvent anti-hunting laws by yelling, "It's coming right for us!" before shooting any animal, thereby justifying the kill as self-defense. Later, after a court ruling, shooting the animals so as to "thin out their numbers", despite the fact that they are shown shooting at endangered species when they shout this phrase.
Ned hardly shows any emotion; mostly just staring blankly ahead of him. He used to be a State Champion Boxer until a grenade blew his right arm off. He is very accident-prone; and has, on occasion, blown his arm off, ran into a telephone pole, got trampled by a herd of cows, etc.
Though Ned and Jimbo both are best friends and share the same interests, Ned seems to be the opposite of Jimbo. While Jimbo is tall, fat, and loud; Ned is short, skinny, and quiet. And Jimbo is a natural leader while Ned seems very dependent on Jimbo and does everything he says.
