BoJack Horseman Wiki

Diego Mendoza is a one-time character in BoJack Horseman. He was a love interest for Penny Carson and the boyfriend of Lyla K. He only appeared in Escape from L.A., in Season 2.

Physical Appearance[]

Diego is a young man in high-school with dark brown hair, a slightly muscular build, and stubble on his chin and under his nose.

He is shown at prom wearing a maroon tuxedo, a pink flower corsage, a dark purple button-down vest, a bow-tie, a white collared shirt, and dress shoes.


Very little is known about Diego’s personality, although from what has been said about him he seems to be cool with a mellow personality, but not standoffish.


Season 2[]

Very little is known about Diego’s background, although he appeared to be a very popular kid at his high-school, and Penny Carson had a crush on him. The two lived in the same neighborhood, and Penny claims they have a “thing,” when they say “hey” to each other.

Penny is able to overcome her shyness around him and asks him to senior prom, but he rejects her. He chooses to go to prom with Lyla K., a turtle girl, over her. He is the catalyst for Penny's disastrous prom night, leading her to ask BoJack to sleep with her, after being rejected.
