A persnickety penguin, Henry is a creature of habit in every way and usually shuns the idea of trying different things, though he can sometimes be persuaded otherwise. Henry does his best to maintain a rigid schedule, which includes taking care of his extensive spoon collection, ending every evening watching "Penguin Patrol", his favorite TV show, and doing the Penguin Polka before bedtime. Most of Henry's favorite foods are fish-flavored and he is a proven expert on snow.
Henry is black and cream white. He has blue-green eyes (light green in earlier episodes). His beak and feet are orange.
Henry has appeared in many episodes of Oswald. His first appearance was in "Rollerskating." His final appearance was in "Snow to Go."
