"Shut the hell up!" - Catchphrase
Walter is a retired, grumpy old man with arms always crossed in discontent. He has a brash, negative and often sarcastic view on today's world. He was a Vietnam War veteran and a former welder, and "doesn't give a damn" about anyone, especially his own wife and certain audience members. Walter has appeared in all four Comedy Central specials. He's been married for several decades, and when Dunham asks him if he remembers the happiest moment of his life after Walter tells him he has been married for forty-six years, Walter responds, "Forty-seven years ago!" Dunham created the Walter puppet himself, including both the initial sculpture and the silicon mold, though he eventually began using professional effects companies for the latter stages with his subsequent puppets. Walter also wears vests and a red bow tie (he now wears red suspenders with black lines.)
He confirms he is the father of two children, his son (who according to Walter isn't very bright by his comment "a good day for him is when he buttons his shirt and it comes out even"), and his daughter, whom he is proud of but says she has a bad husband as she told Walter that she once caught her husband with a sex blow up doll.
Walter and Jeff guest-starred once on The Ellen Show, and Walter commented he has a brother who is an alcoholic.
