Pee Pee Strongbottom is a chef that works for Bowser under a slave contract, and is a main character in the SML series. Because of the family placing all of their tasks on him, no matter how simple they may be, he is very stressed and gets sad or angry easily. He usually makes food for Bowser Junior, but often makes food for Bowser as well. He makes food for Mario and his friends, usually without complaint, because they ask nicely and stay out of his way.
This version of Chef Pee Pee is an Alberto Chef puppet from Melissa & Doug, with the words "Chef Pee Pee" sewn into the dress.
Chef Pee Pee first appeared in Koopa's New Job. When he was first introduced, his character was completely different from his present day characteristics. He was portrayed as a retarded chef. He also spoke with an Italian accent. Today, he is portrayed as hating his job, although he has never quit it for some reason (aside from the non-canonical Chef Pee Pee Quits! saga) and is significantly smarter than his original self: in fact, he is portrayed as one of the most sensible characters in the entire series.
It is possible that Chef Poo Poo, Chef Pee Pee's clone introduced in Chef Pee Pee's Clone, is a homage, or throwback, to Chef Pee Pee's original character. This is because the old Chef Pee Pee and Chef Poo Poo have striking similarities in characteristics: Poo Poo is significantly more retarded, cheerful, and also speaks with a more Italian accent that Chef Pee Pee.
When Chef Pee Pee was a child, he lived in New Jersey. He played with sticks, rocks and poop. This was revealed in Bowser Junior Loses Thomas. It could be assumed that he was neglected and locked in a cage by his father which could explain why he said that in The Big Thanksgiving that his family didn't love him.
In early videos, Chef Pee Pee was jolly, incompetent, stupid and enjoyed working for Bowser and he sounded more Italian and he was almost as dumb as Mama Luigi, but when Bowser Junior was reintroduced, he became a lot smarter and his accent sounded more American. He also started whining, yelling and complaining all the time and to some, it became kinda annoying. Chef Pee Pee also blames others for what he did sometimes. It was his fault Junior went to summer school.
Even though he complains and whines all the time now, he's friends with Mario, Black Yoshi, Shrek, and Woody. Mainly because they're nice to him and ask him politely to make food for them.
Chef Pee Pee can commonly be compared with Squidward from SpongeBob. They are both grumpy, are both tortured by two characters (SpongeBob and Patrick for Squidward and Bowser and Bowser Junior for Chef Pee Pee), and both act like jerks, and are punished for it. Chef Pee Pee and Squidward are also commonly tortured, as well. Despite his grumpy attitude, Chef Pee Pee has a big heart, and deep down cares for Bowser and Junior.
Despite becoming very annoyed, and in some cases downright hating Bowser and his son, he shows that, deep down inside, he actually has a caring heart for them in some aspects. For example, in Bowser's Depression, when Chef Pee Pee discovers Bowser attempting to hang himself in his bathroom (after Charleyyy and Friends was cancelled), he admits that he is "kind of happy", but decides to save Bowser's life nonetheless. He also attempts to talk Bowser into regaining his life again. Also, in Toad's Girlfriend!, Chef Pee Pee gives Junior advice when he asks him on how to deal with Toadette hitting on him despite being Toad's girlfriend. In Turkey Tyranny!, Chef Pee Pee protects Junior from the cop invasion by getting down and covering him with his hands, in Chef Pee Pee Quits Part 3 when Chef Pee Pee and Goodman are called from a police call about Bowser abusing Junior, Chef Pee Pee tazes Bowser.
Although Chef Pee Pee is mostly considred a protagonist, he is an antagonist in The Purge!.
They really despise/hate each other. Chef Pee Pee wants to kill him and Bowser Junior. Bowser also hates him by trying to make him do more work than he really has too by creating a mess on purpose. But in the more recent videos, Bowser and Chef Pee Pee seemed to be getting along a little better than they were in their earlier appearances. Despite this, they barely get along.
Chef Pee Pee despises Bowser Junior, but he is forced to take him and his friends to places against his will and is always getting annoyed with them. Chef Pee Pee hates Junior because he's a spoiled trouble making brat who whines when he doesn't get his way and is always trying to get even.
Despite this, Chef Pee Pee and Bowser Junior deep down love each other and can't live without one another. Such as in Bowser Junior's 7th Birthday!, Chef Pee Pee goes far out of his way to make Bowser Junior's birthday as good as possible, and in Mother's Day!, Chef Pee Pee is truly touched by Bowser Junior's efforts to make him happy, and punches Bowser when he beats up Junior. Once it is revealed Chef Pee Pee is the fake mom, Junior says he still loves him and hugs him, and Chef Pee Pee (barely) admits he loves Bowser Junior too.
Chef Pee Pee gets frustrated with Goodman a lot, because he hates his former job with him and how Chef Pee Pee got arrested several times. Though Goodman doesn't like Chef Pee Pee, he doesn't "hate" him. He thinks Chef Pee Pee is immature though for tasing Bowser.
Chef Pee Pee technically thinks Cody is weird and gay, especially since Cody makes out with his Ken doll and likes watching Barbie Drama. But Chef Pee Pee "tolerates" him a little bit more than others.
Mario and his Friends
They all get along very well with each other. Chef Pee Pee likes the way Mario, Shrek, Black Yoshi, and Woody ask him for food politely and that they're the only ones who don't treat him badly like Bowser and his son. But for some reason, he hasn't decided to work for them instead of Bowser (although this may be because he is in a slave contract with Bowser). However, he now also works for them, since they all moved in with him, Bowser and Junior.
Chef Pee Pee and Shrek, unlike Chef Pee Pee's relationship with all of Mario's friends, is mixed. On one hand, Chef Pee Pee respects Shrek for being more tolerable then Bowser and Bowser Junior. On another hand, Chef Pee Pee finds Shrek disgusting, such as in Shrek's Homemade Cheesecake and Mine!, and dislikes him.
Chef Pee Pee has a nice relationship with Black Yoshi. He seemed to be happy with helping him so he could kill Bowser. However, in Black Yoshi's Fried Chicken, he says "he does not care for Black Yoshi", hinting he doesn't like Black Yoshi for whatever reason or this could be because he was busy and stressed out.
Chef Pee Pee and Woody are good friends. They usually help each other out and have each other's back when they're in a jam. Like in episode 6 of Shrimpo Hunter or in The Big Thanksgiving.
Chef Pee Pee has received mostly positive reception from SML fans: he is one of SML's most recognizable and iconic characters. Fans have praised Chef Pee Pee for being completely founded on originality, rather than many of the other SML characters that are based off of Nintendo games, or in some cases films (like Shrek). Pee Pee is also well known for hating (or at the least being very annoyed by) various characters like Bowser and his son Junior, both of which are portrayed as unlikable, and sometimes idiotic in nature.
He has, however, received a bit of criticism in the past for what was at times frequent appearances of the character. He was one of the most used characters in 2015, which some fans complained about, saying that he had too many appearances. Logan has toned down the number of appearances he's made for 2016, but nonetheless is still a regularly appearing character and an iconic staple of SML's YouTube channel.
He is also Matthew Davis the Movie Lover's favorite SML character.
YouTuber Kushowa is also one of his favorite SML characters.
Starting with The Fly, Chef Pee Pee's clothes now has the words "Chef Pee Pee" on the left, near his arm, however, in the episode "Chef Pee Pee's Birthday" he is seen given the clothes by Jackie Chu, this might mean that Chef Pee Pee's birthday might have been made before The Fly.
In his earliest appearances, he was shown to be cannibalistic since he would kill koopas (which are antimorphic turtles), and then turn into turtle soup. However, he is not really a cannibal since he and turtles are two different species.
In the first season and some of the second (most notably in his 1st appearance), his accent was more Italian, he loved working for Bowser, and he was far less intelligent, but from late season two onwards, his accent is more American and he is smarter.
Nowadays, he says "hell" in practically every sentence he makes.
Despite hating cooking for Bowser, he once saved him when he found him hanging from a rope (the reason for him doing this was because Charleyyy and Friends was cancelled) in the bathroom.
Although Toad used to be the unlucky person of SML, Chef Pee Pee and Mario now are now shown to have the worst life.
Chef Pee Pee has had a fear of ferris wheels since he was three years old, as revealed in Bowser Junior Goes To The Fair, but he doesn't like to talk about it, saying it is really "tragic."
He owns a Magikarp, Snorlax, Psyduck, and Weedle and is a gym leader in the Pokemon series.
Everytime he appears, Italian music plays, the song can be found here.
After realizing how much hate Pee Pee was getting, Lovell (Chef Pee Pee's voice actor) tells the fans, in a behind the scenes video, "Don't diss my nigga."
Chef Pee Pee swears a lot and out of all the SML characters, he is the only one who swears constantly.
It is revealed in The Purge that he hates Junior simply because he exists.
Chef Pee Pee's puppet is real, it is sold by Melissa & Doug, with the difference it does not have the words "Pee Pee" on it. It is also unique among other Melissa & Doug puppets, most notably his eyes are further apart, his mustache is wider, and his hair is shorter, and you can name the puppet as you want.
He does not like to sleep nude, as revealed in Truth or Dare.
It is revealed that Chef Pee Pee is uncircumsiced in The Mystery Safe.
Chef Pee Pee exclaims in SuperPowers 2 that he would "plow" Bowser Junior, meaning he has sexual feelings for Bowser Junior.
