Production Information
First appearance Buseys Take A Hostage
Portrayed by Jennette McCurdy

Penelope is a member of the Busey classroom that only appears in the episode Buseys Takes A Hostage. She was a stand-in for Zoe Desenea, who's actor had left the series when the episode's plot called for her.


In her appearance, Penelope was a bit hyperactive and like Zoe, she had crazy, overdecorated braids. Penelope appears to believe anything she's told as she even believed that someone could be revived by cutting open their throat and jamming a pen in it, which was something she saw in a movie.


  • Amy Bruckner was busy with other projects and could not come back to reprise her role as Zoe so the character Penelope was created to fill in for her.
  • Penelope is the second character to be played by Jennette McCurdy, with Daisy Wilkerson from season 4's If Boys Were Girls being the first one.
