Pepper Ann Pearson is the protagonist of the animated series Pepper Ann. She is a geeky and unpredictable 12-year-old 7th grade girl who attends Hazelnut Middle School. Her arrogance is matched by her friends and family. She is best friends with Milo Kamalani and Nicky Little. Her mother is Lydia Pearson, and she has a younger sister named Moose. Her grandmother is Miss Chism. She often has elaborate fantasy sequences in which her reflection acts as her conscience during moral dilemmas. Pepper Ann has a crush on Craig Bean. At the end of the intro, Pepper Ann always finds something else under her desk (for the first season, it was always "five bucks", but later on in the series, the item would vary, e.g., a mood ring).
Pepper Ann and her mother Lydia made a brief cameo near the end of the House of Mouse pilot episode "The Stolen Cartoons", when Tantor throws Pete out of the building, causing Lydia to warn Pepper Ann, "Don't touch the villain, dear." Notably, Pepper Ann and her mother are the only characters created for a Disney television cartoon to ever appear in that show, aside from Ludwig von Drake.
