Penelope Owsley, also known as Princess Penelope, was a new addition on The Krusty the Clown Show, originally put in to attract more female viewers. She was almost married to Krusty the Clown.


Penelope grew up in Mineola, New York, a village on Long Island.

Penelope was a new addition to the Krusty the Clown Show, as his producers found out that they were losing the female demographic. Krusty accepted the new addition, only to get tired of her girly antics very soon, quickly losing male viewers instead. When Krusty tried to confront Penelope however, she revealed to him how she joined mainly because of him, being his biggest fan since childhood. After this revelation, Krusty and Penelope start a relationship.

The Krusty the Clown Show episodes soon after feature them singing love songs to one another, with Krusty culminating in asking Penelope's hand in marriage, to which she agrees heartily. On their wedding day, Bart and Milhouse try to sabotage the ceremony by showing Penelope Krusty's array of ex-wives, including Holly Hippie and Eartha Kitt, both of whom despise him. Penelope still desires to be wed to Krusty, but Krusty believes that he is not worth Penelope's love and cancels the wedding.

Penelope then moves to France and sadly sings her songs on her guitar at a local café. When walking on the Seine river bridge, she looks down at the water. A boat passes by, and she sees Krusty's reflection on the water next to hers. She turns around, expecting to see him, only to see nothing. Krusty is actually there though, he was just in the water. She flings herself in the water, happy that he changed his mind, and the two float down the river, staying afloat using Penelope's wooden guitar's case where they kiss.[1]

It's unknown what happens with them, but as in later episodes, Krusty was seen interested in other women, it's possible he and Penelope broke up.


Penelope wears a beautiful pink dress (similar to that of Disney princesses). She has dark brown hair and wears long white gloves with fingers cut off and pink shoes with bows. She also wears pink lipstick, magenta stick earrings, a necklace with a star, and a blue tiara on her head.

In Paris, Penelope wears a simple black shirt with black pants and matching black shoes.
