Kyle Broflovski

Kyle Broflovski, is a character in the animated series South Park.
Voiced by series co-creator
Matt Stone, Kyle is one of the four central characters, all of whom are eight or nine year old boys. Stone has claimed that Kyle was loosely based on himself when he was younger. His most notable catch phrases are "You bastard(s)!" (following Stan's "Oh my God, you/they/we killed Kenny!"), and "I've learned something today" (usually before the end of an episode), or "No we haven't, dude. No we haven't" after Stan's "Well, I guess we've learned our lesson." Kyle is mostly known for being Jewish,

He also regularly shows his disdain for
Eric Cartman, calling him names such as "Fatass" and the like. This, in return, only fuels Cartman's need to call Kyle out as well, taunting him about Kyle's religion.
Kyle typically displays higher moral standards than the other boys. Kyle also usually gets higher grades than his associates, and is the member of the group who often provides the sober thought to plans or ideas made by the other boys. Since Kyle is the more rational of his peers, he usually put in the shoes of the protagonist to Eric Cartman's antagonist. Kyle is on better terms with Stan Marsh, often to Eric's chagrin. He is the most caring and compassionate of the boys. His friendship with Stan has probably got deeper due to the many times Stan has saved his life (Cherokee Hair Tampons, Super Best Friends and Cartmanland). This is shown in Smug Alert! when the two are seen hugging at the end. Andrew Lerner originally posted this on Saturday, August 11, 2007. It is posted today because of the hurricanes of Ike, and now Kyle. They are Jewish brothers. Ike is Canadian. The hurricane that bares his name went into Canada!
