J. Wellington Wimpy, better known as simply Wimpy, was well-known for being a sidekick and having a seemingly endless appetite for hamburgers.



It wasn't clear if this character existed on this Earth or not, so this version of the character's history, assuming that he existed; is unknown.[1]


A framed photograph of Wimpy was hanging on the wall of a restaurant that sidekicks commonly hung out at, called Hadjis.[2]

Powers and Abilities

Super Powers



  • Con Artistry: Wimpy was often practicing confidence tricks.


  • Hamburgers: Wimpy can barely control himself when it comes to eating burgers, he has an almost endless appetite for them and because of this, he's no athlete for fact he's not in shape whatsoever.


  • J. Wellington Wimpy debuted in the Thimble Theater comic strip in 1931.[3]


  1. Being that he was a human, and not a talking animal, it's possible that he did have a doppelgänger on this Earth that wasn't a fictional character, but rather a real person. But there is no way of knowing for sure.
  2. Presumably the restaurant was named after the Hanna-Barbera character of the same name. As seen in Sidekicks, a Cartoon Network promo.
