List of characters

Parker Dinkleman (born c. 1990) is the deuteragonist of Mr. Meaty. He is Josh's best friend and co-worker and Ms. Dinkleman's son who works as the kitchen guy at Mr. Meaty.


Unlike Josh, Parker is slightly clueless, fat, unsanitary, easily distracted, and a slight coward, as well as a sci-fi geek. He is quite fond of his job, while Josh hates it.

Parker hauls trash and is behind almost anything going on at Mr. Meaty.

Parker enjoys making horror movies with Josh and is totally into them. He is also determined to make the ultimate gore-fest with Josh (even though Josh spends way too much time talking to girls).

His gross habits and unpleasant bodily noises (which includes his uncontrollable farting problems) often drive the girls away, much to the huge frustration of Josh, who is so bent on getting a girlfriend. Because of this, Parker can be considered Josh's foil. One day, Parker hopes to talk to a girl without sounding like a complete idiot.


Parker has light brown hair, light yellow eyes (yellow in the pilot and shorts), and pimples.

He almost always wears a short-sleeved Mr. Meaty work shirt with his name tag on it, long black pants, and blue and white sneakers.

His inability to take a shower every day is the main reason why he works in the kitchen and not out front with Josh (not that this bothers him).

  • According to a blog, he is the most favorite character.
