Characters: Pepper Ann

Pepper Ann Pearson

Nicky Little

Milo Kamalani

Margaret Rose "Moose" Pearson

Lydia Pearson

  • Amazingly Embarrassing Parents: Lydia occasionally slips into this, but especially when she took Pepper Ann bra shopping.
  • Amicably Divorced: From her former husband. Lifestyle seems to have been the main reason they split up since his job required him to travel a lot. Whenever the two interact it's clear they still get along fine, even if they do engage in a bit of ribbing.
  • Funny Afro: Several flashbacks show Lydia used to have one. Though given her background it's probably better described as a Jewfro.
  • Glamorous Single Mother: Averted, and in one episode she has an entire comedy act around how not glamorous it is.
  • Generation Xerox: Punishes Pepper Ann for sneaking out to a party, but then Pepper Ann finds Lydia's diary from when she was in middle school and learns that Lydia also sneaked out of the house without her parent's permission.
  • Hartman Hips: A rare overweight example.
  • Jewish Mother: Subverted. Lydia is Jewish or at least, celebrates Jewish holidays to keep with tradition, but doesn't act like a stereotypical Jewish mom.
  • Mama Bear: Lydia is hinted at having this side to her. One time, she physically threatens a waiter who is making her late for Pepper Ann's play.
  • Meganekko
