Hi Super Nintendo Chalmers! He is best known as the Springfield 's resident oddball, and has been immortalized for his non sequiturs and erratic behavior. His lines range from purely nonsensical, or bizarre interpretations of a current event, to surprisingly profound statements that go over people's heads.
It was revealed in Moms I'd Like to Forget that this was because his dad dropped him on his head when he was a baby. For this, Ralph is somewhat of an outcast among his peers, although he seems to be on good terms with a fair number of the other kids at school, such as Bart and Lisa and Milhouse.
The nature of his mentality is kept rather ambiguous, much like many of the signature traits of much of the show's cast. Like almost every other character in Springfield, he may not be quite as simple as he first seems, as evidenced by his hinted immense potential as a performer. Contents Biography Personality Ralph is quite an enigma of a child. Upon first glance, one might mistake him for a child with dementia; or perhaps they might even look at him as mentally challenged. It is shown in Moms I'd Like to Forget , that he was a normal, well functioning baby, until he was dropped on his head by his father.
His unique manner of speech is often the source of the character's trademark random quotes, where Ralph may make a comment such as "What's a battle? Flanders , you're blindeded! He is an incredible tap dancer and played the role of George Washington in the school play. As Washington, he not only recited his lines perfectly but also managed to play the role so well that he brought the audience to tears.
Ralph is in his first year of second grade and also shown to be able to drive his father's police cruiser.
Ralph is often seen in very awkward situations such as eating paste, crayons, worms, clay, knobs, lamps, and the Easter bunny, and other such erratic forms of behavior that have since become a staple of the character. Ralph has a rather immense imagination, and is seemingly oblivious to the world around him. As such, he is generally a cheerful boy. However, Ralph also has a hint of tragedy and dark satire to him, like almost every other character on the show.
Throughout the show's history, Ralph is eternally the odd one out among his peers at school. He has connections because his father is Chief of Police. Ralph seems to generally get along with many people, as well as occasionally irritate and baffle them.
After Lisa gave him a Valentine out of pity, Ralph developed a crush on her. Lisa publicly breaks up with him and Ralph is left devastated. The pair eventually become friends and Lisa has generally been nice toward him since.
On one occasion, Bart is forced by his mother Marge to play with Ralph. He is at first bored with Ralph but ends up having fun after they steal Clancy Wiggum's master key to the city, and Bart eventually admits that Ralph is a friend. Clancy, in particular, rather adores his son as the two do much together, such as various road trips or Ralph's first trip to a major league baseball game.
His favorite food is school supplies. Ralph has a multitude of imaginary friends such as Wiggle Puppy and a pyromaniacal leprechaun being particularly well known among viewers. Ralph's teacher, Miss Hoover , is indifferent to his personality and his imagination. Though she will often correct him in a dull, condescending manner, "The children are right to laugh at you, Ralph," she tells him at one point she has yet to outright scold him.
This could be because, as he told his father, she is "tired of trying,"  as he usually misses the point. Ralph once signed up for the Auntie Ovenfresh Bakeoff , but his Grilled Crayon Sandwich with thumbtacks was rejected by the contest.
Ralph was also part of a rather infamous hoax where Homer , Skinner , Apu , Lenny , Carl , Chief Wiggum and others had become so fed-up with the whole issue of voting early for the election that they decided to cast all of their votes to someone who was not only unbelievably small, but also so young and unbelievably unintelligent it would be impossible for him to be considered a candidate and they ultimately chose Ralph.
Ironically, Lisa discovers that Ralph is not only aware of what being nominated means, but is also taking the idea of being elected very seriously. Using his childish behavior, he intentionally manipulated the Republican and Democratic parties to join forces in their support of him. Typical Behavior During class, Ralph's teacher Miss Hoover will stop lecturing the class for a moment to question Ralph's actions such as eating something he shouldn't, or saying something bizarre or oblivious.
Another common 'Ralph' moment is him being at a major event, and saying something to either perplex everyone present with its insight, or point out something so glaringly obvious it's funny. Ralph has quite a knack for getting himself into sticky situations as well. When Bart was skateboarding naked, saying "I like men now",  and proclaiming that he will attend "Bovine University".
Burns bluntly told him "Thank you, get out! Get off the stage, sweetheart! This seems to have subsided a little recently, although appearances by Ralph himself have been lighter. Ralph has also demonstrated signs at being borderline psychotic, as he has stated that there is a rock in his yard, where he saw a leprechaun, who told him to burn things.
When he later helps save the Mayor of Springfield with Bart and Lisa, the leprechaun appears and tells him, "You've done grand laddie. Now you know what you have to do? Burn the house down! One time Bart stood up for him to the bullies and befriended him,  but most of the time he isn't bullied. He is more commonly shown with the rest of the second grade class: Lisa is also one of Ralph's friends, and was once his so-called girlfriend, but that ended when Lisa said that she didn't really love him.
Ralph asks Lisa for test answers now. Romances Ralph has had many romances throughout the series. In " See Homer Run " he is seen with Terri , playing with her and Lewis in a swimming suit with a water cannon in mid June. His future wife is possibly Lisa, although she would have had a romance with Milhouse. Ralph also "came out" during the Simpsons Movie , however this was not followed up.
Future In Lisa's Wedding , he becomes one of Krusty's sideshows but is arrested. The first clone told Bart that he died and he was turned into a clone. In Days of Future Future , a future version of Ralph appears to be a police officer like his father.
Similar to Holidays of Future Passed. Lisa's Opus , a future version of Ralph is still in the second grade. Rumored Death It is shown during the end credits in Simpsorama, Ralph's grave said , meaning a rumor of Ralph getting killed off in is out.
It was however, confirmed that this was not the case. He plays a slightly major role in Level 2, where he acted as the third person Bart can buy illegal fireworks from. Based on his comment to Bart just before giving him the fireworks "My daddy's going to put you in jail, bye!
Aside from this, Ralph also appears in every level but the final one as a Springfield DMV referee for street races, always acting as the third one he is absent from the final level alongside the other two judges because of zombies taking over their positions.
Unlike the other judges Milhouse and Nelson , it was never made clear why he was hired by Selma and Patty Bouvier to act as a judge, although his exchange with Lisa in the third level implies that his father arranged for the two to hire him as punishment for presumably acting out at the hardware store.
In the fifth level, both Apu and Ralph implied that they had been involved in an incident where Ralph nearly managed to somehow drown himself in nacho cheese, and that the event was highly prestigous to cause newspaper headlines. Ralph later appears along with Rod and Todd Flanders as Hobbit-like children who help Homer and Marge defeat the two-headed dragon in order to get the keycard.
