Rumble Red is a humanoid with pincers instead of hands, horn-shaped ears, and three eyes that blink sequentially. He frequently mentions the lack of Earth amenities on his home planet, which The Homestar Runner (as well as others) find very annoying. He has been accused by both The Homestar Runner and Mary Palaroncini of being a communist fool. (During the 20th century, the term "red" was a derogatory slang word for communists.) He also frequently adds the phrase "Eh, Rumble?" after or during sentences.
Rumble Red's planet doesn't have much. According to him, it has long lines and expensive bread. This references the Soviet Union after the economic reforms of the eighties, when the Soviets had to stand in extremely long lines to receive their rations, and when staple foods like bread were scarce, and therefore expensive to procure. Rumble Red appears to have been killed by a Decemberween gift from Old-Timey Marzipan.
According to the email mini-golf, he runs a bowling alley, "Rumble Red's
Kommunist Kozmik Bowling", making a reference to him apparently being a communist.
