Cleveland Orenthal Brown Junior is a main character on the animated series The Cleveland Show and a recurring character on Family Guy. On the Season 25 premiere episode, he along with his family appear in the couch gag but his party (including Homer) were not allowed inside but after a protest, they were allowed back in. He is voiced by Kevin Michael Richardson.
Junior and the rest of The Brown family appeared in the credits gag of the episode "Homerland", going to a party to celebrate the 25th season of The Simpsons, along with families from tons of other FOX cartoons such as Family Guy, American Dad!, and Bob's Burgers. However, they are not allowed to go into the party because they're black. The family starts picketing outside the party, demanding to be let in. Homer Simpson, who was also disallowed in there, is joining them, saying that FOX is also against him. The Brown family is eventually let in, but Homer Simpson is still locked out.
Cleveland Brown Junior is a short, tubby kid with a big head, that's puffy and giant around the cheeks and tiny on top. He has short, black hair and glasses. He has a red shirt, that doesn't entirely fit on him, showing his belly button, and he also wears dark blue shorts. He has white sneakers with light blue on them.
Cleveland Junior used to be a slim, hyperactive, young boy, who ran around, doing a bunch of crazy things and making random quotes. When he debuted as a character in The Cleveland Show, he was a way more calm, mellow, happy kind of guy. He was very fat and lazy, and was also very nerdy. He acted like a manchild, who still played with stuffed animals and action figures at the age of 14, and even acted a bit effeminate at times too. He was overly happy about everything and he never showed any anger for people, no matter how horribly they treated him. Overtime, he started to develop more and express anger more often. Whenever someone wronged him, he would completely snap and curse them out and beat their ass.
