Kitty Kilpatrick hosts the moderately popular "Kitty's Korner" program on her local public TV station in the small city of Bugtussle, Iowa. She is on for a half-hour each weekday morning, plus holiday and pledge week specials. She is short and bosomy, with masses of dyed-red hair and big glasses with frames to match her grandma-ish mostly floral-patterned pants suits.
She talks a mile a minute, making a lot of big gestures, and she's got a distinctive hyena laugh. She is exhausting to watch. Mostly on her show she does crafty things with old wallpaper and coat hangers or cooks things with almost all the ingredients being canned or frozen or Jello. Sometimes she'll interview some local "personality" like the special-ed bus driver or the guy who takes in unwanted pet rabbits.
Kitty is a kindly soul and not unintelligent, but she is stuck in a time warp and doesn't know it. If she did know it she wouldn't care because she is low on imagination and wouldn't be comfortable trying to do anything differently. She is also known to play fast and loose with pills, which explains her fearsomely peppy mood on her show so early in the morning. She also drinks mouthwash, on the theory that if you are going to drink, you should at least do it in a way that doesn't leave you with boozy breath.ck
