But chicken, I got ice cream too! And rum raisin.

Mr. Lefkowitz[1] is Penny's father. He has a speaking role in two episodes: "An I See Bee" (his most prominent role in the series, celebrating his daughter's tenth birthday) and in "Eye of the Honeybee," where he encouraged Penny with her ping pong training.

He first appeared in "Super Secret Weakness" in a non-speaking cameo. Mr. Lefkowitz is mentioned in other episodes, namely "Bee My Baby" and "Tour D’Alcatraz."

A loving father, Mr. Lefkowitz calls his daughter "chicken" as a term of endearment. He is shown reading the newspaper and eating cereal in each of his speaking appearances. Dee Bradley Baker provides his voice.[1]

Personality

Mr. Lefkowitz loves his daughter (whom he addresses most often as "chicken" and occasionally "princess") dearly, comforting Penny when she's upset and dancing with her at a redo of Penny's birthday. In "An I See Bee," he reminds Penny to bring her inhaler with her as she leaves the house, showing he cares for his daughter's well being.

However, he appears to be rather cheap, buying Penny a half-off clearance cake with someone else's name on it for her birthday. Nonetheless, he means well and encourages Penny in her pursuits, such as her practicing ping pong in "Eye of the Honeybee."

He also has a knack for cooking, especially food his daughter loves, as Penny mentions in "Tour D’Alcatraz" that her father is making Jump'n Joey's famous Pizza Padoodles for dinner.

Physical appearance

Mr. Lefkowitz looks quite similar to his daughter, both being light-skinned, overweight and having nearly identical head shapes. He has brown hair, wears a dark green shirt (with brown diamonds on it), light blue undershirt and black pants in addition to shoes of the same color.

In season 2, his wardrobe changed: Mr. Lefkowitz still wears black pants and his undershirt stayed the same, but the diamond shirt is now a dark blue color, with the diamonds and shoulders being a lighter shade of blue.
