Gilbert Huph

Gilbert Huph is Bob Parr's villainous boss and a minor antagonist of The Incredibles.

Role

He is the boss of Insuricare, a fictional insurance company and only cares about getting money. He does not allow any of his employees to help people in need of insurance. The rule especially applies to Bob Parr, who legally helps troubled customers, much to Huph's dismay. He first appears angrily running toward Bob's office, reprimanding him that he is supposed to gain money for Insuricare, not authorize the customers' payments on the Walker policy. The next day, Mr. Huph calls Bob down to his office and tells him how annoyed he is by his customers dodging every loophole after Bob helped them. As the conversation continues, Bob witnesses a man getting mugged and attempts to rescue him, but Mr. Huph threatens to fire him if he leaves his office and does so. Bob reluctantly closes the door under Mr. Huph's orders. After Bob sees the mugger getting away, he is discouraged that he failed to save a victim for the first time, due to Mr. Huph's self - centered attitude, he furiously grabs Mr. Huph by the throat and throws him through several walls, injuring and placing him in the hospital, much to the shock of the other Insuricare employees and the annoyance of Bob's agent, Rick Dicker, who fired Bob for the incident. Mr. Huph isn't seen again for the rest of the film.
