==Character Overview== [[Image:Upchuckmobile.jpg|left|thumb|300px|Upchuck customizes his car for the homecoming parade ("[[I Loathe a Parade]]")]] Charles "Upchuck" Ruttheimer the Third was a student at [[Lawndale High]], in Daria's class. His chief characteristic appears to have been attempting to arouse female interest by (badly) affecting a sophisticated persona, seemingly based in part on James Bond, Playboy founder Hugh Hefner, and a distasteful parody of a bad Las Vegas comedian. For example, he often referred to females as "ladies," and always spoke the term in a salacious tone. Interestingly, he for the most part appears to buy into his delusions of being a "Casanova". Delusions, however, is the proper term to describe his belief, as he appears to be among the least-popular students at Lawndale High, at least as far as the females were concerned. His status was confirmed by [[Tiffany]] with the brief phrase, "Upchuck? Ewww...." (See the episode [[Jake of Hearts]].) This extends to females he encounters outside of school, including the cop from [[I Loathe a Parade]] who referred to him disparagingly as "Don Guano". Perpetually-undeterred, Upchuck would make a sexual comment almost every time he appeared on-screen in the company of females, and would frequently deliver his catch phrase "Grrr... feisty!" in response to any insult or rejection thrown his way by women. In "[[Too Cute]]" however, it is revealed that when push comes to shove, actually chickens out, being MORTIFIED by the sheer concept behind the breast implants Daria got from [[Dr. Shar]]. In "[[The Lab Brat]]", we find out he spies on couples making out and takes photos of them. Ewww. [[File:StacyUpchuck.png|220px|thumb|left|Upchuck and his delightful assistant, Stacy ("Life in the Past Lane")]] Other than the ladies, another of Upchuck's interests is magic. He'd perform simple tricks for shoppers at [[Lawndale Mall]], and once pulled off an amazing disappearing act at Lawndale High, with the help of [[Stacy Rowe]]. This is the only occasion in the television series where a girl willingly worked with Upchuck. Upchuck appears to have an aptitude towards broadcasting, as he is the PA announcer for the [[Lawndale Lions]] football team and the DJ at the school dance in "[[Daria Dance Party]]". He also showed an irreverant sense of humour in "[[The Daria Diaries]]", recording several joke answering machine messages on his father's business phone. (His father was not amused) His father is [[Charles Ruttheimer the Second]], who seems to own his own business. He also has two cousins, [[Brad]] and [[Brett]], who are handsome, funny men who can attract girls - yet are shown to be on close terms with Upchuck (who they call "Chuck") and share his catchphrase. Both seem aware of his unflattering nickname. [[Image:Upchuck_ultrasuave.jpg|right|thumb|350px|Upchuck's website]]
