    Mr. Peanutbutter 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/screen_shot_2015_02_12_at_11_42_25_pm2.png

Played by: Mr. Peanutbutter Real Actor 

An Expy of The Horse who, similar to him, adopts human children, in this case orphaned girl twins and learns along the way how to be a parent.


  • Animal Stereotypes: Mr. Peanutbutter (both the character and the actor) are every single trope about loveable dogs incarnate. He's lighthearted, easily excited and overall a nice pers—ehmm, dog.
  • Actor Allusion: See As Himself and Literary Agent Hypothesis.
  • As Himself: Probably. The actor and the character share the same name, attributes and mannerisms.
  • Captain Ersatz: It's a no-brainer that the "Mr. Peanutbutter" character is a rip-off of "The Horse" from Horsin' Around.
  • Character Title: He's the aforementioned Mr. Peanutbutter of the show.
  • Children Raise You: Being a single parent with no previous experience dealing with children, Mr. Peanutbutter often has to learn how to deal with the responsibilities that come with it as well as how to be a proper father.
  • The Danza: Mr. Peanutbutter is the name of both the character and the actor.
  • Dog Stereotype: Mr. Peanutbutter is a Labrador Retriever, and is thus incredibly nice (if a bit dim and has his moments of being Innocently Insensitive), light hearted and he has a very short attention span.
  • Expy: Of The Horse.
  • Family Versus Career: During the season in which Mr. Peanutbutter became President of the United Statesnote , the family obligations constantly came into conflict with the demands of leading the nation. He finally resigned after one of his kids got into a problem in school, realizing he had to be there.
  • Fun Personified: He's incredibly cheery and always has a bouncing personality that can be contagious when around him. Only Zelda seems to be immune, not that it matters.
  • Good Parents: Overly abrasive happiness and easily distracted character aside, he truly cares about his adopted children. He's a bit put-off by Zelda's overarching cynicism and Troubling Unchildlike Behavior, though.
  • Interspecies Adoption: Mr. Peanutbutter, a Labrador adopts Zoey and Zelda, two human girls.
  • Literary Agent Hypothesis: Hard to completely say, but since he's The Danza, it could be argued that Mr. Peanutbutter, the real one, the actor, is playing As Himself in a fictional situation (adopting two human girls).
  • Loved I Not Honor More: Played With and Averted. Mr. Peanutbutter did eventually resign from office after an enormous incident in school involving one of his children, but judging from the context, things had to escalate to a serious breaking point for him to do so, and even then, he continued working until it was clear he couldn't be both a parent and the president.
  • Mighty Whitey: Unintentional, but the fact that Mr. Peanutbutter, a yellow Labrador, adopts two girls, who are not only orphaned but also a minority since they're black sure lends itself to a bunch of Unfortunate Implications.
  • Mister Strangenoun: Mr. Peanutbutter.
  • Nice Guy: Just like his actor.
  • Papa Wolf: Oh, yes. He resigned from the Oval Office just to see his kids.
  • The Pollyanna: Happy, cheerful to an extent and never lets anything wear him down.
