More butter please!



The King of Town is the de-facto ruler of Free Country, U.S.A. However, nobody wishes to acknowledge this; it's therefore possible that this character is a satire on the obsolescence of monarchy. He lives in a castle, and The Cheat lives in his grill. He is not considered cool by anyone. One of his main problems is that he is a glutton and will eat anything in front of him (except peas, which he hates). He has been known to consume an entire flock of sheep, a tub of Strong Bad's cocoa butter, and the candy corn Halloween lights from the side of Marzipan's House. He has been paired with The Poopsmith since the in their old-timey "Castle Funnies" comic strip. He was directly involved in the creation of Decemberween, but was too uncool to play himself in the re-enactment.

Character Video Transcript

{Page Title: Go Go Cookie Dough!!}

{THE KING OF TOWN is standing outside next to his castle. One of his sheep stands behind him.}

THE KING OF TOWN: Hello, my loyal subjects. I am The King of Town. Please remain standing while I finish my speech and consume the contents of this bowl. {holds up a bowl momentarily} Now, despite rumors to the contrary, I did not just buy a crown at the costume palace and ask people to start calling me The King of Town. I earned my title the same way I earned a free combo meal by purchasing one of equal or lesser value. I also did not ever try to eat my own mustache. I live in yon castle {gives a nod to his castle}, and employ a Poopsmith for reasons I don't care to disclose. And furthermore, now I'm going to eat this bowl of corn dog batter. {picks up a bowl of corn dog batter and begin to eat it}.

Fun Facts

  • An Old Characters Page claimed he was Marzipan's father, but The Brothers Chaps have said they dropped this idea early on. "That was just something that we just toyed around with there briefly, but then decided that’s not the way we wanted it to go. We just put that up, but most people don’t visit the Museum, so hopefully it doesn’t cause too much mass confusion." - Matt Chapman
  • At the end of the clip, the sheep continues chewing, even though the VCR is paused.
