I don't understand why everybody have to be so judgmental. I understand why mom's judgmental. I think it's 'cause she cares, *partially*. Think it's also partially 'cause, everyone else is lookin' at her like, "Hey, Cody's just a bum." "Cody's this," "Cody's that," "Cody's this." Cody's me, bro. Let me be me. When is that going to start?
Cody is a black and white Rockhopper penguin with longer yellow feathers sprouting from his eyebrows and brown eyes.
In the first film, he wears a pink and white seashell necklace with a "Z" carved into it, which was given to him by Big Z. Later, Cody throws his necklace into the ocean and in the last half of the first film and the entire second film, he is not seen wearing it.
Cody was born to Bob and Edna Maverick. Before Cody was born, his father was eaten by a killer whale.
When Cody was young, infamous surfer Big Z visited Antarctica. Cody made his way to the front of the group, where Big Z gave him one of his trademark necklaces. This inspired Cody to pick up surfing.
