Cheepy, often referred to as Little Cheepy, is a notable Birdo from The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode "The Bird! The Bird!". He is depicted as a small, pink-colored Birdo wearing a scarf.


It is revealed in the episode that his mother, the Giant Birdo, had lost him and was frantically searching for him, even employing the Missing Bird Bureau to aid her. Eventually, his mother, being extremely near-sighted, mistakes Toad for Cheepy.

Mario, Luigi and Princess Toadstool discover that the real Cheepy is found to be frozen in a block of ice. Freeing the Birdo using his fireballs, (Super) Mario, Luigi and Toadstool surmize that he is the missing Birdo. Eventually Toad is dropped from the sky during a botched flying lesson from the Giant Birdo, landing in the campsite of Mario, Luigi, Princess Toadstool and Cheepy, who Toad then returns to his mother.

Later on, after King Koopa and his followers surrendered, Cheepy and his mother invite Mario, Luigi, Toadstool and Toad to their home for lunch; this lunch, however, turns out to be large, talking worms.
