He spent an enjoyable and cheerful childhood in the Labrador Peninsula that you can find in rural Canada. Well, buckle up because he is not only a good-looking but educated Labrador. As he got a life full of fame and money, it can be said that Mr. Peanutbutter never really came in contact with hard decisions and realities which made him really clumsy in the real world.

Some of the facts that explain his personality include his never-ending love for balls and the abhorrence for the mailman. But, on the brighter side, he is absolutely sweet, faithful, generous, spirited, and thoughtful.

Mr. Peanutbutter, in the 80s or 90s, first came to Los Angeles, where the events turned into him co-piloting the plane in which he was coming to California. When his mother got Parkinson’s due to old age, his brother told him that he had sent their mother to the countryside farm, so she could run around. Pretty sobbing story twist!

You must be thinking what exactly is his relationship with BoJack. Actually, Mr. Peanutbutter was BoJack’s rival but still, he had respect for his opinions.

Or we can say, by using Mr. Peanutbutter and ideas of Todd. Together, they started a Halloween Store and a celebrity reality show called “Peanutbutter and Jelly”.

Let’s move to his marriage and all the love stories!

In Season 5 of the series, he dates the character Diane Nguyen and gets married to her but later the couple gets divorced in the same season.

Physical Appearances

Mr. Peanutbutter is a yellow-colored, lean but muscular, male Labrador Retriever, having a height of 6 ft. He looks younger than his age. Pretty plus point!

His attire includes a V-neck T-shirt, grey with blue colored pants, orange-colored sneakers, and two brown and green colored wristbands on his left wrist. Sounds classy enough. He also wears sunglasses which usually stay on his head. HANDSOME HUNK!

In 2007, he used to wear the “Swan Dutch” hat which was blue and red, a black t-shirt with a dog skull printed over it, and grey-blue colored pants with green sneakers.

He had wavy hair in the 90s and wore a button-down collared shirt, dark blue with light blue jeans and white sneakers.


Mr. Peanutbutter sure has a lively charisma, but it is often shown that he doesn’t understand puns and metaphors hard to understand, making him appear clumsy. Although he appears muscular with high energy, still he is not that good listener. He finds it hard to handle relationships.

He is shown to have strong opinions which leads to him being defensive in arguments. He also feared that Diane might get bored with him and leave him. So, he kept trying to impress her with heavy gestures. Even so, she didn’t like it much.

One of his bad habits is unchanging behaviour. Instead of facing his problems, he always tries to ignore them and doesn’t change himself as a person. Although no one confronts him on this, he appears very self-focused. He is extremely impulsive, making him do bizarre things and take not-so-sensible decisions in life.

His biggest flaw as a person is that he doesn’t listen, especially in his relationships. When in an episode, “Mr. Peanutbutter’s Boos” his first wife Katrina repeatedly tells him that she doesn’t want to be left alone in the party, he doesn’t care. And then again with Diane, when she constantly keeps trying to impress her with great gestures even though she tells him that she doesn’t like them. It seems that he doesn’t want to consider that people have their own identities and likes and dislikes, and individual, independent personalities. Although he does apologise to Diane for his behavior later on.

Well, it seems like he is a bad guy, but he is not. He holds a sympathetic heart, a kind soul, and a cheerful identity The biggest strength is his ability to stay constantly positive. Perfectly explained as a “man-child”. He can be dumb as a rock but gives all the rich energy feels.
