Brendon Small is the star of the show and writer, director and lead actor in most of his movies.

Background Edit

Brendon is a talking 8-year-old boy who acts out his anxieties and problems through his movies. He has had his trusty camcorder since just after toddlerhood, and has been making films incessantly ever since, perhaps because he started around the time his parents got divorced. Though well-meaning, logical, and surprisingly witty, he is consistently dogged by apathy, oversight, and occasional egotism; he is usually surprised, confused or hurt when his work is criticized.

Despite his questionable wisdom and intelligence in other parts of life, he is surprisingly knowledgeable about films and filmmaking; his first film was a homage to Easy Riders called Eazy Triker's. Brendon is apathetic toward his schoolwork and consistently gets bad grades, most likely because he is preoccupied with making movies. It has also been said by a few characters that he is quite feminine, as stated in the episodes The Wedding and Shore Leave, as well as accidentally placing in a tape of him dressed like a girl in Method of Acting. He has also shown an amazing talent for set design and sewing.

Despite his many various obstacles (age, height, personality, dangerous nose), 8-year old Brendon Small has become the auteur of his block. With his friends Jason Penopolis and Melissa Robbins, Brendon maintains an amazing ability to turn his personal angst into cinematic angst. Brendon's father left the family years ago, living now with his mother, Paula Small; he has since found father figures in bizarre places, namely local soccer coach John McGuirk.

Appearance Edit

He is a short kid with very stiff, wiry red hair. He wears a blue shirt, blue pants, and blue shoes. Compared to Coach McGuirk who is 8'2", Brendon is 4'5" which is the average height of an 8 year old boy. He also has a long, pointy nose. His hands have four fingers and his feet have four toes.

Trivia Edit

Brenden Clarence

Brendon as an adult in Clarence.

  • He accidentally taped a video of Fenton's mom naked when she was shaving her armpits after coming out of the shower, and she didn't have a towel.
  • He was bitten by the neighbor's rabid cat.
  • Brendon fantasized Linda wearing a towel really low showing a lot of her cleavage when he and McGuirk were talking about her.
  • A character resembling Brendon makes an appearance in an episode of Clarence in the episode "Video Store", as an adult video clerk. He also has a photo of a character resembling Coach McGuirk on his desk.
    • However, he has five fingers instead of four.
  • In the Bob's Burgers episode "The Hurt Soccer", Brendon Small makes a non-speaking appearance in the soccer team Bob Belcher coaches.
  • He is never shown to have a belly button.
  • Seeing how the series began in 1999 and he was 8 the entire series, Brendon can be considered to be born in 1991-1996, though he is shown never age, not even in other TV shows.
    • Which makes him similar to Stephanie from LazyTown.
  • Brendon has a very long, sharp nose and a color scheme of blue and orange. This can remind somebody of the Piantas from Super Mario Sunshine, (nose) and the title character of The Misfortune of Being Ned (color scheme).
    •  In children's secret terms, he's a combination of the two, even though he predates them both. 
      • However, unlike those characters, he actually has fingers, toes, and his eyes have some whites in them.
