Is it just me, or...?
~ Ralphie's catchphrase.

Ralph Alessandro Giuseppe"Ralphie" Tennelli is the class athlete and daydreamer. He plays a lot of sports, and when he's not, he's daydreaming about playing sports. He's of Italian American descent, once mentioning that his mother's calzones "go down like rocks.", and his entire family owns an artisan Italian restaurant. He has a distaste for anchovies, which his dad puts on pizza to keep him from eating it. He mentions in "Kicks Up a Storm" that he hates roller coasters and shows to have a weak stomach in "For Lunch". Despite his occasional machismo, he has no problem showing when he's afraid. He loves superheroes and reads comics (Kicks Up a Storm, The Battle for Rock Mountain), and he appears to be a science-fiction fan (as shown by his pajamas). In "The Frizz Connection", when the Bus and Ms. Frizzle are split into three parts, he appears with Carlos and Keesha on a part of the Bus conducted by Ms. Frizzle's humorous side.

He is voiced by Stuart Stone in TMSB, in Rides Again, he is voiced by Matthew Mintz (Season 1-Making Magic)/Matthew Mucci (Kids in Space-present). In Robot Chicken, he is voiced by Seth Green, and in the Japanese dub of Rides Again, he is voiced by Hiroko Takemasa.
