Rudy is a member of the Junkyard Gang. He usually serves as the primary source of comic relief in the series.

In the Junkyard Band, he plays a makeshift banjo, whose parts include a broomstick handle and sewing-thread spool to hold the strings. But when shown playing apart from the others, Rudy plays an electric guitar (stylized with a big letter "R"), making him the only member of the band to play a real musical instrument.

Personality Edit

Rudy fancies himself a smooth-talking huckster, although his smart-alecky attitude more often gets him into trouble than out of it. His cocky and dismissive attitude often serves as the catalyst for a typical plot's conflict, but his outward cockiness masks a decent heart, and he usually learns lessons from his mistakes. Case in point, after getting Mudfoot injured because of a prank he was playing on someone else that went awry, Rudy, without telling anyone else, took up a hazardous job in order to help pay off Mudfoot's mounting debts. Another time he expresses sympathy to a girl whose parents were getting a divorce.

Rudy's family is said to be the most affluent of all the members of the Junkyard Gang, but Rudy never boasts about it, except in the season 1 episode "Creativity", when he first gets his new electric guitar and brags about how he's going to become a big star and make a lot of money. His background is never again brought up on subsequent occasions.

In the 2004 Fat Albert movie, Rudy’s personality is very different and now acts like a well-mannered, kind-hearted gentleman. This is most likely due to a culmination of his character development over the course of the series.

In the film, his appearance remains mostly unchanged, with the exception of his shoes being pink instead of red like in the original series, as well as his sweater vest being changed from red to purple.
