Kenny[1] is a third grade student in Mrs. Fink's class. He is identified as Bentley Vallinakis on Mr. Ratburn's fourth grade class list.[2]

When his teacher calls on him to answer a question, he successfully answers and the entire class is rewarded with cookies. He once asks Mrs. Fink what to do in a rhyming assignment if they could only think of one word that rhymes.

He plays the violin, as shown in "Arthur and the Crunch Cereal Contest."

In the episode "Bully for Binky" it is shown that he was in Ms. Morgan's preschool class along with the other major characters and with the exception of clothes his appearance then is mostly the same now.

In "Sue Ellen & the Last Page," he states that he uses the library computer because he doesn't have one at home.
