Last episode


Penny is very cheery. She is easily entertained by the small things in life, though she can become easily distracted. She is a Christian, but she can be swayed by false teachings if she doesn't know better. She is quite eccentric and a fairly abstract thinker, which helps her with one of her principle talents—art.


Penny originally was born and lived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and later moved to Odyssey to attend Campbell County College, where her fiancee moved. They later broke up over voicemail. Dr. Trask was her mentor, but he betrayed her by working with counterfeiters; she testified against him, though she became rather sulky about it. She is Connie Kendall's roommate and close friend. She also became Wooton's fiancee.


Penny has a mother who is a hair stylist in Pennsylvania. She is engaged to Wooton Bassett.


Her eye color is green.
Penny painted a mural of ancient Rome in Connie's kitchen and different themes in her bedroom, including a Jungle Theme and the Sistine Chapel. She also painted a picture of a meadow that hung in Connie's house.
She is 5 feet 8 inches.
Her favorite drink was once raspberry soda.
She was at one point held in protective custody.
She was almost named Miranda.
Her ringtone is "Pop goes the weasel".
She is allergic to salmon.
She was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, from which her name is derived.
If you put Penny's first and middle names together, it's Penelope.
Jacques Henri took notice of her artistic abilities and put on an exhibition of her work in his gallery, where she now works.
Her trademark is a sweater and a hat.
She once had a fiancee who was the reason she came to Odyssey but he broke up with her over voicemail.

Penny Wise: Don't be silly. There wouldn't be enough strudel for the whole class.

“The Green Ring Conspiracy, Part 5”

Connie Kendall: Take Eugene and Wooton. They're afraid to be seen by you by fear that you'll misread their expressions and gestures.
Penny Wise: They are?
Connie Kendall: Isn't that right, Eugene?

Penny Wise: I thought you said you wanted to try being blonde.
