General Trivia

  • Giggles and Petunia are waitresses at the Happy Tree Cafe. Giggles is seen working there in Concrete Solution and Petunia is seen working there in A Change of Heart.
  • She developed a relationship with Handy in the episode I Nub You.
  • The Love Bites short I Heart U shows that she might be in love with Mime. She has also been seen with Mime in Who's to Flame? and Easy Comb, Easy Go.
  • Petunia can be seen without her flower on her head in Flippin' Burgers, I Get a Trick Out of You, Wishy Washy, Dunce Upon a Time, As You Wish, I Nub You, Reindeer Kringle, and Kringle Feast.
  • Petunia's season 1 intro is very similar to Cuddles' season 1 intro.
  • Her OCD has appeared in one starring role for every female character: herself in Wishy Washy, Giggles in Home Is Where the Hurt Is, Lammy in Royal Flush, and Flaky in Wingin' It.
  • Petunia is the fourth character to come back to life in another episode after dying, as she died in Pitchin' Impossible and appeared in the very next episode Stayin' Alive.
  • In the original storyboard of the episode Wrath of Con, Petunia was supposed to have the lightsaber instead of Giggles. The editors changed it for unknown reasons.
  • She was the first person to meet Lammy, as shown in Lammy's debut episode A Bit of a Pickle.

  • In season 3, her alliterate sentence is: Plant plenty of pretty, perfumed, purple and pink flowers!
  • As of Royal Flush, her OCD has returned from the TV series, though she didn't freak out in Breaking Wind from Splendid's gas.
  • She is always wearing an air freshener around her neck, takes five showers a day, and she is always trying to keep herself and her surroundings as clean as possible. These facts may hint that she suffers from Mysophobia, or a fear of germs/contamination.
  • Despite being a neat freak, in her TV title card, the flowers around Petunia start to die. It's possible that she might have used her skunk spray.
  • She is the only skunk character in the series.
  • She has been replaced 3 times on different episodes with Giggles for unknown reason.


  • People often mistake her for a "squirrel" because of her tail size.
  • The marking on Petunia's head is extremely similar to the marking on Aang's forehead from the Nickelodeon cartoon Avatar: The Last Airbender. Coincidentally, the markings on both characters are light blue.
  • Although the marking on Petunia's back is a triangle most of the time, in earlier episodes, it occasionally changes to a line or disappears completely.
  • Even though Petunia doesn't have hair in the show, she was seen with a very long French braid of blonde hair in Dunce Upon a Time.

Rapunzel would be proud.

  • Petunia's tail has shrunk significantly during the newer episodes.
