Brenda is a minor supporting character of the animated series Pepper Ann. She is an old friend of Pepper Ann's who has fond memories of her time with her at camp, yet still displays a very childish attitude.


Brenda is Pepper Ann Pearson's bunk mate from Cubby Camp who first appears in "Old Best Friend" where she comes to visit her. When Brenda arrives, it is apparent that the two of them share absolutely nothing in common; Pepper Ann is down to earth while Brenda is easily excitable, childish and, at a glance, clingy. Brenda seems slightly unaware of Pepper Ann's sudden distaste of being around her, however in a twist, it is revealed that Brenda believes that Pepper Ann has not changed and politely ends their friendship, much to her confusion and sadness.

Brenda reappears, in spirit form, in "A Valentine's Day Tune" as the Spirit of Valentine's Day Present. She reveals to Pepper Ann all the things Lydia, Nicky, Milo and Craig have done to make her feel happy on the day.


Brenda is loud, obnoxious, flowery, excitable, care-free and childish; basically everything Pepper Ann finds appalling. She barely finds a dull moment for herself and is always taking part in some odd hobby. She does however tend to turn down other people's interests for her own, implying that she is a little selfish. Despite all this, Brenda does display some self-awareness as she was convinced that she herself had matured more than Pepper Ann and was willing to keep her distance from her for her own sake.

Physical appearance

Brenda is a tall Caucasian girl with blond hair done up in two large pigtails. She wears a red-orange dress with a wide skirt and light blue trimming and, oddly enough, wears brown puppy shoes.


  • It is possible that Brenda suffers from Peter Pan Syndrome, in that she is incapable of mentally growing up. Seeing as how it is not accepted as a real psychosis, this might also explain why she believes she has matured and not Pepper Ann.
  • Besides the two major episodes, Brenda has cameoed in "Crush and Burn", "Impractical Jokes", "You Oughta Be in Musicals!" and "Complimentary Colors". While this could simply the animators reusing assets, this would also imply that Brenda remained in Hazelnut, but stayed true to keeping her distance from Pepper Ann.
