From Season 1 to Season 3, Penny was an anthropomorphic peanut.

Like the rest of her family, she had a set of antlers that grow out of her head. In Season 3, the episode "The Shell" revealed that Penny underneath her shell is a shape-shifting, fairy-like creature. She can transform into any animal, and every time, the animal has a set of antlers.

Penny does not normally wear much clothing, aside from a pair of orange sneakers with white knee socks and some red and white wristbands. However, she is often seen carrying white pom-poms. Penny is very nice and friendly. She sticks up for her friends often, implying she has a strong sense of integrity.

She also seems to be athletic, as she is an excellent cheerleader, and was/is part of the synchronized swimming club. Also, in "The Dress," she was one of the first people to finish running around the track.

  • Early in her development, she had darker antlers.
  • In "The Flower",  it is revealed that Leslie is her cousin.
  • Penny is allergic to blueberries, as revealed in The Dream.
  • In The Shell, it is revealed that she is a fairy.

  • She is one of the few characters to undergo a permanent change in the show, the other was Rob.
  • She  is currently on the school's cheerleading team (being the most talented of them, though that's not saying much).
  • Although she only can shape-shift depending on her emotions as stated in "The Romantic," she shape-shifts into her wolf form in "The Blame" even though she didn't feel emotional at all.
  • However, she is often seen carrying white pom-poms in season one.
