George Edward Lopez, played by the comedian of the same name, is the central character of the show, George Lopez.
George Edward Lopez was born in April 1968 and had a difficult childhood which is referenced throughout the series. His mother, Benny, is blamed for much of the abuse and jokes are often made about how she treated him badly. George initially believed Manny, his father, was dead (which was what Benny told him so he would stop annoying her by asking her where his father was), but learned he was actually alive from Manny's sister, Cecelia. When Manny sends George a check after he ran into financial trouble, George (with Angie, Max and Benny in tow) goes to see him in Phoenix, Arizona where George ends up punching him in Benny's honor. Manny soon had George arrested, but dropped the charges, and since he suffered from kidney failure, George agreed to give him a kidney. George later lost his father to the disease before the transplant was performed.
George married Angie Palmero and had two children; Carmen and Max Lopez. In the pilot episode, "Prototype", George gets promoted to being the manager of Power Brothers Aviation (usually seen as Power Bros.), a factory that makes airplane parts. Angie's wealthy father, Vic, initially disapproved of George, but has come to accept him as a worthy son-in-law. In "Super Bowl", George is also an Oakland Raiders fan. It also mentions in several episodes that George has dyslexia, as well as his son Max. He also played guitar and baseball as a kid. He can be aggressive. In his teens he started a band with Ernie called "Dos Bad Asses " in which they played heavy metal.
He is overprotective of Carmen in many episodes. In the episode after the pilot he is upset that she has breasts. He doesn't like her dating and he never admits he's upset that she's growing up until She Drives Me Crazy when he says Carmen's eighteenth birthday will be the saddest day of his life. When Carmen ran away, it is revealed that when Carmen was younger, he never spent anytime with her and now he feels guilty. Ernie says that when Carmen was born George wondered what he would do when she started dating. He is close to Max, however, and is always giving him dating advice or just advice in general.
