9. Leonard “Pee Wee” Peevy is 5’9” tall and weighs 290 pounds. Leonard’s nickname has nothing to do with his body size or the fact that the talks like Pee Wee Herman. At one time Leonard was a fair high school athlete but has turned into a militaristic sedentarian. Still, he feels the need to occasionally relive the “good old days” and show off for his kids by performing intense “feats” of physical strength. Although he denies it, Leonard is a heavy smoker (3-4 packs a day).
