About

Mr. Boss, also known as The Boss, is a supporting character in the animated comedy series Smiling Friends who is the CEO and owner of Smiling Friends Inc., usually assigning tasks to the protagonists Charlie and Pim, as well as other employees. Following the premiere of the second season of the series in 2024, the character achieved notable virality within the show's fanbase, becoming a subject of memes and fan art online.

Origin

On April 1st, 2020, the pilot episode "Desmond's Big Day Out" of the animated comedy series Smiling Friends premiered[1] on Adult Swim. The episode introduced the supporting character Mr. Boss, the owner and CEO of Smiling Friends Inc. where the main characters Pim and Charlie work.

Mr. Boss is an eccentric and energetic elderly man who assigns tasks to Pim and Charlie and other employees of the company. He's often seen in his office or in the break room where Smiling Friends employees pass the time between tasks.

On January 2nd, 2022, YouTube[2] user rainaScallion uploaded a collection of Mr. Boss scenes from the show, which garnered over 3.9 million views in two years (shown below).



Spread

While some fan art based on the character was shared online prior to the release of season two of the series in 2024, the character saw a notable surge in popularity after its premiere. The rise in prominence of Mr. Boss was assisted by the character appearing in meme formats such as Guess I'm Oogly Goo and That's a Little Version of Me, Allan.

Following the premiere of season two of the series, the character became a prevalent subject of fan art within the fanbase, with notable examples being posted on X[3] and Tumblr.[4]
