Lester Krinklesac is a major character and recurring anti-villain from the FOX animated TV series, The Cleveland Show. He is a redneck hillbilly, who lives across the street from The Brown-Tubbs family and a member of The Guys. Lester is characterized as being blatantly and openly racist, bigoted, homophobic, etc. and is even guilty of animal abuse, child mistreatment, and rape.
Lester is part of racist organizations, such as the Ku Klux Klan, and a firm believer/enforcer of the confederacy. His primary idealism is to rid his country of cultural minorities.
He is voiced by Kevin Michael Richardson, who also voiced the Joker in The Batman.
Lester is a repulsive, poorly groomed, redneck hillbilly. He has long, dark blond shoulder-length hair, and a big mustache. He has missing teeth and a large, protruding beer belly. He wears a dirty white undershirt, under a torn up cowboy jean jacket. He wears ragged blue jeans, held up with a brown belt, and also has black shoes.
Lester is basically the embodiment of the epitome of racism. Despite one of his friends being, Cleveland Brown, Lester still makes openly offensive and vituperative remarks about him on occasion. He has also been known to mistreat and victimize other black people and is even hinted to be a member of the Ku Klux Klan.
Outside of villainy, Lester is a stupid, brainless unemployed, and an illiterate person without a job or scholarly education. He is unqualified for getting a real job, so he lives in a crappy, run-down house, with no electricity or running water. He hunts animals for food and lives among a bunch of rats and filthy rodents, with his fat wife and inbred son.
- In "The One About Friends", Lester proved to be an extremely neglectful parent, making his son, Ernie, live in the horrible, crappy, living environment of his rat-infested house. He effortlessly told Ernie he could live with another family if he didn't like it there. Cleveland called child services on Ernie, claiming that he'd been "taken from home", in an attempt to get him out of his house. Child Services Came, but instantly upon seeing the quality of The Krinklesac House, they took the kid away, and put him with a foster family. Lester got angry at Cleveland and made him team up with him to get Ernie back. Lester also took along a gang oh his hillbilly friends, to break into the new home of Ernie, where they'd proceed to shoot up his new parents and leave the home, without undergoing any punishment for the dozens of laws he's broken in that process.
- In "Brown History Month", Lester shamelessly displayed a confederate flag on the face of his house, during Black History Month. He and Cleveland had a falling out of epic proportions, which got physical and led to them going to court, where they were ordered by law to work together. Lester was never forced to take down the flag and even played the victim card, filing hate crime accusations against Cleveland.
- In "How Cleveland Got His Groove Back", the guys constructed a racecar and Lester told Cleveland fought over who got to drive it. Lester that he couldn't drive it because he was black. Cleveland assured Lester that white people are inferior at sports and Lester took him up on that as a challenge. They played a game of baseball, which Lester won. After shaming Cleveland for his loss, he took over as the leader of the guys and continued to blatantly ignore him, shunning him out of the main group.
- In "Little Man on Campus", Lester claimed to be part of a pro-AIDS charity organization. He wanted to give the rest of the world AIDS, believing he had it, on account of him watching a Madonna episode of Glee.
- In "The Blue, The Gray, and The Brown", Lester took on the role of the villain, when the guys did a civil war reenactment, due to his bigoted political beliefs. In the end, Lester would change his ways and take a fake bullet for Cleveland. He only redeemed himself in character as a civil war soldier, however.
- In "BFFs", he implied he was a rapist or former rapist when he predicted what would happen to himself and the other guys, when they were kidnapped by a gang of other hillbilly rapists.
- In "Yemen Party", his wife, Kendra said he affair with LeAnn Rimes.
- In "Y Tu Junior Tambien", Lester called to get Choni Moreno and her family deported. Technically, this was rightful, since they were illegal immigrants, but Lester's only motive for this was born out of his Mexican racism. This would be further established in "There Goes El Neighborhood", when he was protesting against racial coexistence, with fear that the Mexicans would become the majority.
- In "Escape from Goochland", he participated in the theft of The Statue of Eunice, the war on Goochland, and the murder of Chet Butler.
- In "Turkey Pot Pie", Lester held a shooting galleria for turkeys. Cleveland and Junior saw this as unethical and worked together to free the turkeys from further getting killed and eaten. During their charade, Lester served as the antagonist and tried to stop them. He was defeated.
- In "Of Lice and Men", Lester drank LeVar Brown's RC Cola, when he knew he wasn't supposed to.
- Lester identifies as a Republican, according to "Jesus Walks".
- The Krinklesac Family, like most stereotypical hillbilly families, is very incestuous. In "Mama Drama", he admitted that Kendra was his first cousin, making Ernie an inbred. In "Of Lice and Men", he addressed his father as "Brother Cousin", a confusing family role which was never explained.
