| Character Information
Chuck Berger (also known as the "My Ding-a-Ling Kid") is a student in Lisa's class at Springfield Elementary School. He has a lisp.
He loves a good Wrigley walk. His father is quite hard on him as he didn't trust Chuck to create his own volcano for the science fair. His talent is that he can flip his eye lids.
Chuck participated in the school's talent show. His entry consisted of singing a crude rendition of the Chuck Berry tune "My Ding-a-Ling". However, he only got through half of the chorus before Principal Skinner abruptly stopped him and bodily escorted him off of the stage.
Chuck watched Nelson's 'trick' with a Twirl King yo-yo, and then criticized it. In response, Nelson hit Chuck on the back of the head with his yo-yo.
When all the children took an aptitude test to determine their future careers, he got "Insurance Salesman" on his test.
When Bart was stuck in a basket being lifted by balloons, Chuck sent up another balloon causing Bart to float higher.
Behind the Laughter
His name was revealed by Mr. Bergstrom in the episode "Lisa's Substitute".
"My Ding-a-Ling" was a #1 hit for Chuck Berry in the early 1970s, but generated controversy because of the numerous double entendres in the lyrics. Many radio stations flatly refused to play the song, referenced by Skinner's removing Chuck (Berger) from the stage.
