Biography

Eugene, Eugene!

Eugene performs on stage in the episode "Eugene, Eugene!"

A somewhat socially inept but optimistic boy, Eugene is the class jynx despite his name meaning "born lucky".

He is prone to several forms of misfortune and is often bullied by his fellow students. Since Arnold has inadvertently added to Eugene's misfortune several times (killing his fish, destroying his bike, ruining his birthday, etc...) this had once caused Eugene to conclude that Arnold is a jinx, as every major misfortune Eugene had involved him. However in the episode "Mugged", Arnold rescued Eugene from street robbers who were trying to eat his mallomars and macaroons without permission.

But many misfortunes in Eugene's life alluded to (but not seen on the show) were not involved with Arnold; nor were the many minor accidents (crashing his bike, falling down, etc.) that he experiences every time he appears. The possible reason for his bad luck is that he was born on Friday the 13th (revealed in "Friday the 13th"). Accident-prone Eugene is the subject of most of the scrapes, bruises, and general misfortune in the series.
