Kip Schlezinger is a minor character in The Amazing World of Gumball. He first appears in "The Law."


He is a live action male human dressed in a black suit over a white shirt. He also bolsters a blue tie, though on occasion he has worn a red tie (additionally, in the rough cut of "The News" and in "The Web" he wears a striped tie).

In "The News," he is a giant live-action puppet made out of newspapers, instead of a normal human.

"Elmore's Most Wanted"


  • As a live-action human, he is portrayed by the show's voice director, Richard Overall. However, Overall's voice was dubbed over by Dan Russell in Season 3 and Alex Jordan in Seasons 4 and 5 because he could not do an American accent well enough.[1][2]
  • He is the only recurring live-action human on the show.
    • In "The News," however, he appears as an anthropomorphic newspaper.
  • His appearance in "The Law" differs from his other human appearances; in that episode, he has a mustache and a different haircut.
  • In "The News," he forgets and/or mispronounces his own last name multiple times.
