Kel Einstein Hypothalamus Kimble (Kel Mitchell) is Kenan's best friend who is extremely clumsy (similar to Family Matters character Steve Urkel, played by Jaleel White) and somewhat stupid. He loves orange soda (which he professes by talking in the third person: "Who loves orange soda? Kel loves orange soda. Is it true? Mm-hmm! I do, I do, I do-ooh!" and never pays for the soda he drinks at Kenan's place of business, Rigby's). In the episode "Who Loves Orange Soda", it is discovered that his innards are "bright orange" from drinking so much of the soda.

Since Kel's parents are rich, busy scientists, he often visits and stays in Kenan's home to keep him company. He might resist following Kenan's schemes at first, but ultimately he is included anyway and Kel somehow usually ruins them, although there are a few episodes that end on a high note. Kel is also an incredible painter, and is always wearing at least one colourful hat during each episode.

He is scared of pancakes, airplanes, butterflies, brassieres, Berlin, and monkeys. His catchphrase is "AWWWW, HERE IT GOES!" which he says at the beginning and end of each show once he said it for a very long time.

In the first episode and throughout the first and second season, Kel is a tad smarter, noticeably more "paranoid"/neurotic to Kenan's schemes, and a little more independent but then is changed to become more of a comic relief for the rest of the series. It was revealed in "I.Q Can Do Better" that Kel is actually a "genius" after scoring a 100 on his IQ test out of a possible 100 to Kenan's 03.

Kel is shown in some episodes to be very talented and smart, but lack common sense. His portrayer Kel Mitchell shares the same first name with him.

He may potentially be referenced in the hit indie RPG "OMORI" with the character of the same name, who also enjoys orange soda. He is ages 16/17/18
