Kitchen is an American adult animated comedy series developed by Ralf Hat for Tetragon. It first premiered on June 5, 1999 and has been since the channel's highest-rated and longest running series. It is set in the fictional dysfunctional city of New Sodom, and follows the quite surreal and violent exploits of Victor, Pants, and Chuck. Mostly infamous for its aggressive violence, preposterous vulgar language, innuendo and offensive humor, Kitchen has been compared to many other forms of media television series, on which many are inspirations for the concept.


New Sodom is a city located in the fictional U.S. state of Jefferson. Being homed to oddities including sentient food items (with chickpeas being the dominant population), humans and humanoids, New Sodom is constantly sprung into various dilemmas which are brought among the ignorance of the civilians.

Kitchen's main synopsis centers over the vicious adventures of middle school friends ― Victor McCoy, Ezekiel "Pants" Goldstein, and Chuck Darren. Attempting to survive the dangers and oddities which surround New Sodom, the trio use their various schemes which often get out of hand quick. Episodes usually depict the main trio getting involved into different situations which will commonly introduce taboo subject matter in a morbidly offensive manner. And unlike other adult animated programs such as The Simpsons, South Park, or Family Guy, Kitchen has a minor focus on mockery of pop culture throughout.


Main characters

  • Victor: The down-to-earth centered protagonist of the series; a fourteen year-old chickpea with completely genial assets. He is typically seen as a sane everyman, which differs entirely against the majority of the series’ cast. While Victor may have a sense of reality and care for others, he’s downright irresponsible with an angst-ridden mind. Victor enjoys hanging out with his friends almost always. Victor is also the obsessive one of the trio who tends to do the right thing, but often always hit back unfairly with bad luck. He is unfortunately a poor help and is bullied constantly by his peers. He has maroon colored hair and light blue clothing.
  • Pants: The deuteragonist of the three; he is a thirteen year-old chickpea who is quite an irritating yet misunderstood child.
  • Chuck:
  • Christine
  • Tim:
