Introduction

Todd Chavez is a human in his mid-twenties who lives rent-free with BoJack in his house and sleeps on the couch at the beginning of BoJack Horseman.

Todd is notoriously lazy, a slacker, and is frequently told by BoJack to "clean up your shit, Todd."

Design

Todd is an adult human male in his early twenties. He has dark blue short hair mostly hidden by his striped yellow hat. He typically wears a red zip hoodie with a plain white shirt underneath, lazy pants, and blue flip flops. He has an unshaved face, straight thin eyebrows, and dotted eyes.

Background

Todd is an unemployed human slacker who showed up at a party in BoJack's house five years before the beginning of the series and never left. Before this, he became obsessed with video games until it corrupted his life - flunking out of school, losing his girlfriend, and being kicked out of his mom's house. Although BoJack constantly voices disdain for him, he secretly cares about Todd. Because he is afraid of being alone, BoJack financially supports Todd and sabotages his attempts to gain independence. Todd was shown to have been involved with a powerful drug cartel immediately before moving in with BoJack.

In the Season 3 finale, That Went Well, Todd questions his sexuality whilst not referring to himself as gay nor straight either, but believes that he may be "nothing", which heavily implies that he is asexual.

Personality

Todd is a friendly, well-meaning, and mostly upbeat slacker who has been shown to possess a plethora of skills including an understanding of Japanese, entrepreneurial know-how, and artistic capabilities. Besides having allied with Mr. Peanutbutter for various business ideas, he tried writing and composing his own rock opera, Newtopia Rising, Book I: The Search for a New Utopia. However, his overall laziness and video game addiction often hinders his success.

While Todd is well meaning and at times tries very hard at a few tasks, he often ends up in trouble. He prizes BoJack as his best friend, despite suffering constant insults by him. Todd is also overly trusting of BoJack, and is often dragged into his numerous schemes through his notorious lies. Funnily enough, Todd always finds it in his heart to forgive BoJack for whatever he has done to him, even though BoJack fails to have much regard for him at most times, and regularly shuts him out of conversations or ignores him.

During Season 3 however, Todd begins to question their friendship upon getting annoyed that BoJack is getting everything he wants despite all the terrible things he's done. In It's You, the line was finally crossed when BoJack accidentally slips that he had sex with Todd's high school friend, Emily which leads to the point of Todd finally getting fed up with BoJack's actions while making him realize that he's been the problem all along.

Trivia

  • Todd loves shimmying, as revealed in After the Party.
