Ed Wuncler III

Ed Wuncler III (voiced byCharlie Murphy): The grandson of Ed Wuncler I. Ed III is a drunken, psychopathic, trigger-happy ex-soldier freshly discharged from active duty in Iraq. His character could be seen as a parody of a young George W. Bush, painted in broad strokes  a figure destined to be president on the strength of his family’s wealth and power, despite his sub-average intelligence (as referenced at the end of “The Garden Party”, where his grandfather says, “In 30 years, that boy will be President of the United States… and he’ll still be a fucking idiot!”)as well as his poor military record, revealing in the same episode that he was refused from being taken on patrol after compromising the unit’s position by habitually defecating in his pants out of fear. Ed’s bling includes a large medallion in the shape of the letter W. Ed III and his friend, Gin Rummy, get away with their misguided and comically inept criminal antics because Ed Wuncler I has the police and everyone else in the city on his payroll, and because his status as a member of the U. S. Armed Forces confers the public image of a hero no matter how immoral his actions may be, while Gin Rummy often argues that their escapes are the result of his being a master planner. For example, the pair go unpunished when staging a poorly executed bank robbery; Ed is seen as a hero when they rob a convenience store owned by a person of “terrorist descent”; in attempting to kidnap Oprah Winfrey, they mistakenly abduct Maya Angelou, then Bill Cosby instead. Ed’s signature line is “What the fuck y’all looking at?”
