It's too bad they never revealed....


the Kid's real name. It was probably something embarrassing like Laverne or Angus or something like that. Kid could have just told the boys and not the whole church.

The rumor always that it was Louis, although, you're right with it not being revealed. Teaspoon's face hints that it had to be something really good.


Yay! The crazy person is here!

The original script had it as "Lou" (or Louis), but the writers realized that it would have made no sense within the context of the entire show to continue with that idea for the mere sake of the lame joke of "Lou marrying Lou."

I asked Ed Spielman (the show's creator) about this, and he said there was never a name assigned to The Kid. The original intent was for it to forever remain a mystery.

It is spoken by Kid in the wedding episode.

I always thought he was "Billy" the Kid.

A friend of a friend used editing software once. If you turn the volume up and turn the bass down you can hear more than one syllable with and "ion" sound. I think his name was Marion which while it is an old popular girls name became popular for boys as well in the olden days...for some reason.
