Penny Lefcowitz is a young Honeybee Scout in The Mighty B! who somewhat resembles an ape.
Penny is somewhat dopey, but is very kind and nice. Penny is Bessie's clumsy, sometimes dim-witted, best friend. However, she also shows loyalty to Portia and Gwen and is occasionally torn between them and Bessie. She has a big heart and is always willing to help her friends, whether it be Bessie or Portia. She shared a kindred friendship with Joey the animatronic kangaroo in "Penny Hearts Joey." In "Bee My Baby" Penny is shown to suffer from asthma, and in "Bee Afraid" she becomes possessed by something evil that came from the dead while telling scary campfire stories. Also when shes alone she eats her boogers.
Bessie is Penny's best friend. Bessie would usually have Penny tag along with her on her adventures.
Sometimes, Penny would join Portia to gang up on Bessie.
