Looking Twice At
Chief Wiggum
“The Simpsons” is filled with many memorable side characters, and eagle-eyed fans are beginning to wonder if there’s a big secret regarding some of these characters. That might be the case with Ralph Wiggum, the dimwitted yet innocently charming second-grader son of Springfield Police Chief Clancy Wiggum.
On the r/TheSimpsons subreddit, one fan posted a reveal about Ralph's real parentage and that he is similar to Chief Wiggum's subordinate, Eddie. An image shows how Ralph's hair is drawn exactly the same as that of Eddie, and while this might appear somewhat innocuous, remember that both of Ralph's parents have blue hair.
However, u/lookcloserlenny quickly debunks the theory, sharing a picture of a forgotten character from early on in "The Simpsons," who was initially supposed to be Ralph’s dad. From skin tone to relationships to even the characters' voices, the original versions of some of the iconic Springfield residents are very different from how we see them today.
