The 'V' Story


George O. Gore II

Michael Richard Kyle, Jr., mostly referred to as Junior, is the only son and first child of Michael and Jay Kyle.


One of his greatest ambitions in the early seasons was to lose his virginity, which after a few failed attempts, does occ
ur in the season three premiere "The Kyles Go to Hawaii"; later on in "Jr.'s Risky Business" from the same season, he and his girlfriend Vanessa Scott have sex for the first time—in Michael and Jay's bed—which gets Junior evicted from his bedroom and the Kyle house, though after some prodding by Jay to get him to change his mind, Michael allows Junior to live in the house again but he winds up living in a makeshift bedroom in the garage (Michael turned Junior's old room into a personal room for himself).

Running GagEdit

Junior, himself served as a recurring gag as many of his physical, personal and mental traits are mined for comedy on the show. From season two onwards, the size of Junior's head becomes the subject of jokes by the family (ironically, Tisha Campbell-Martin's character Jay Kyle was the subject of many "big-head" jokes on her previous sitcom Martin, perhaps suggesting Jr. inherited it from his mother. In the season 3 episode "Sister Story", Michael's sister says Jr. has his mother's head).

 Personality In First Two SeasonsEdit

Initially, Junior was depicted as being simply an underachieving student and in the first season, his ascent into puberty was a recurring theme (ex., in season one's "Breaking Up and Breaking It", Junior locks himself in the bathroom repeatedly, bringing along some unusual reading material like Field & Stream (though not mentioned it is possible he was hiding porn magazines in them, though the hidden magazines are never shown). While in the bathroom, Junior suffers a muscle spasm to his "joystick" while masturbating, much to his embarrassment when he is told this by the doctor treating him, when he ends up in the hospital).

Personality In Season ThreeEdit

More focused on his future and mainly Vanessa, Junior has been tasked with real life situations where with some degree failure he has made through by deciding not to go to Japan alone when he found out his girlfriend (Vanessa Scott) was pregnant.


He was 14 to 15 in season 1. He was 15 to 16 in season 2 .He was 16 to 17 in season 3. He was 18 to 19 in season 4. He was 19 to 20 in the final season.
