The King Of Queens: 10 Hidden Details About The Main Characters Everyone Missed
The King of Queen s was a popular sitcom that ran for just over 10 years, helping to kickstart Leah Remini and Kevin James' careers. Doug and Carrie live a relatively quiet life until Carrie's father Arthur, played by Jerry Stiller, moves into their home. When Arthur enters the picture, he wreaks havoc on everyone's lives and clashes with Doug in the most hilarious ways possible. While the show gave us years of laughs, there are also some hidden character details that you'd probably miss unless you were looking specifically for them. Some of these details don't exactly make sense, either. So, unless you're an uber-fan, here are some of our favorites you probably didn't know.
The King of Queens - Full Cast & Crew
The king is a portly parcel deliveryman whose Queens castle is invaded by his father-in-law after the old man burns down his own house. Close Ad. Live TV.
Like its characters, The King of Queens is a unpretentious but utterly dependable sitcom. Kevin James and Leah Remini, as blue-collar couple Doug and Carrie Heffernan, have the kind of chemistry that every sitcom craves but far too few have. Layered on top of this solid foundation are the bizarre flights of Jerry Stiller as Arthur, Carrie's loud, paranoid, and combustible father. The second season has no overarching plotlines or recurring themes; it's just a compilation of excellent material, including Doug's ego inflating when a waitress flirts with him; Doug and Carrie squirming when their best friends ask them to be godparents; Doug discovering that Carrie compulsively cheats at games; and a flashback to when they first met. It's the attention to emotional detail that makes the show fly; James and Remini take the most mundane material--say, an argument over where to go for a vacation or how their marriage lacks romance--and turn the many ways in which couples cope into a pugnacious duet.
