Joseph HisFriendFromSchool,[1] mostly referred to simply as Joseph, is a main character in SuperMarioLogan. He serves as one of the two deuteragonists of the Bowser Junior videos (alongside Cody) and a supporting protagonist of the Jeffy videos He is a young Koopa Troopa who is best friends with Bowser Junior and Cody.

He serves as a supporting protagonist in the Summer School series, a major protagonist in the 1st Grade series, the main antagonist of the Pokemon Series and overhaul, one of the two deuteragonists of the Bowser Junior videos. 

Despite being the deuteragonist of the series he is an antagonist in some like being the unseen main antagonist in Black Yoshi's Koolaid and Taken and the the secondary antagonist in The Call of Duty Blackout 

Debuting as a random friend of Junior's in Bowser Junior's Cellphone. Joseph, along with Cody, rose to prominence as major protagonists of the Summer School series, and has been a main character ever since as one of Bowser Junior's best friends.

Originally a just a regular kid with a speech impediment and a great love and talent for sport. Joseph slowly started losing his mind after he was led to believe he murdered his own mother in her sleep, and up until his friends visited his house, refused to believe and mocked him.

After his house burned down, Joseph became homeless, living outside Junior's house and hunting bugs to eat. After discovering his mother had faked her death, won the lottery and disowned him, Joseph entered a depression, spending most of his time one that his friends usually ignore.

He usually spends his time with Junior and Cody, and it has become a running gag of his reminding Cody that his boyfriend, a Ken doll, isn't real, often yelling "Dude! He's a doll!"


Joseph usually attempts to act like a teenager or a young adult but fails due to his stupidity. He enjoys making fun of Cody's homosexuality and smarts.

He also appears to be incredibly lonely due to being homeless, as shown in Cody's Parent Problem and The Christmas Special

He appears to be bisexual, for wanting to plow Bowser Junior and attracted to Cody's step-sister.

Despite considering Junior his best friend, Joseph is shown to be disloyal to him at times, due to others being cooler or having cooler possessions than Junior. Some might believe that Joseph is quite opportunistic by using Junior just to survive as shown in Bowser Junior's 11th Birthday!

Joseph has been shown to be insane, due to him not being told about his mother winning the lottery and abandoning him (and having lied about killing his mom), and living with Screwball in a house without electricity or running water.

He only managed to feed himself by stealing from his mother's purse whom she gave to Joseph after she won the lottery.

Despite his athletic abilities, Joseph is a coward as evidenced by his helplessness when Bowser beat up Joseph at the end of Bowser Junior's Big Spill! and his running gag of "I'M OUTTA HERE DUDE!"

He is also shown to have a bit of a temper as seen very often when Cody treats Ken like an actual person and in ShrunKEN when Joseph constantly yells because he wants to fight Junior. Nonetheless, he is still very friendly and is likely troubled by his rough current life.


He first appears in Bowser Junior's Cellphone, and later appears in every episode of the Bowser Junior's Summer School series. After his appearances in the Summer School series, he has become a recurring character in videos and eventually a main character in SML's videos, similar to Cody.

Joseph has been killed a few times, but returned. He was killed by Black Yoshi in The Call of Duty Blackout, He was killed in Bowser Junior's Sleepover, this time by Chica, then killed by Cody in Cody The Magician! while doing a cut-in-half trick. Lastly, killed by The Hop Hop Bunny in Bowser Junior's 8th Birthday! He also owns a Charmander in the Pokemon series, which later evolved into a Charizard in Pokemon Part 6.

Bowser Junior

Bowser Junior and Joseph are pretty good friends (from school) and get along pretty well with each other. If somebody is cooler than Junior, Joseph is on their side rather than on Junior's.

Usually, in an argument with Cody, he sides with Junior. Joseph probably gets along with Bowser Junior best out of all of the characters in the series.


Joseph thinks that Cody is weird and gay, because of him bringing his Ken doll with him everywhere he goes. Whenever Junior and Cody have an argument, Joseph mostly sides with Junior. They're still considered friends, but Joseph still thinks of him as weird.


He gets along with Toad well, and they also like to play basketball together.

Chef Pee Pee

Chef Pee Pee and Joseph are relatively neutral to each other. Although Chef Pee Pee is annoyed by having to make food for them, they get along. Chef Pee Pee and Joseph don't really care about each other.

Joseph's Mom

Joseph's Mom abandoned Joseph after she won the lottery. Joseph was asleep so he assumed due to having a knife in his hand that he used to slit his mom's throat and killed her without knowing that she won the lottery and was alive. The supposed knife is still at Joseph's house, even after he found out she abandoned him.

However, in Joseph's Mom!, she has actually faked her death to abandon Joseph and live with a new family since she won $10M from a lottery ticket. She probably doesn't really care about Joseph that much, or , like him at all since when she won the lottery, she abandoned him and never wanted to see him again.

Joseph's Dad

Joseph's Dad is dead, making him a Dry Bones.


Mr. Bones is Joseph's dead dog.

Black Yoshi

Joseph hates Black Yoshi because he annoys him while playing Call Of Duty. In Bowser Junior's Summer School 3, when Black Yoshi shows his Call Of Duty game for Show and Tell, Joseph asks him what he would do if he met CharleyBrown678 in person. Black Yoshi replies that he would kill him, foreshadowing The Call of Duty Blackout.


Joseph gets along with Jeffy, as they have played together in the Game Night Series and Bowser Junior's Playtime 5. However, they don't really seem to be good friends, as Joseph's reaction to Jeffy's behaviour when they first met suggests that he thinks Jeffy is weird. He also bullies Jeffy in Jeffy's Backpack as Jeffy does not have a backpack.

  • "Yeah, dude!"
  • "He's just a DOLL, Cody!"
  • ”Savage!”
  • "The Wii U is lame, and... it sucks."
  • "What the hell is wrong with that kid? Ugh, Cody!"

  • "The sun is a planet Cody!"

  • "Suck it!" *Junior, you're the smartest guy I know!
  • "What the **** dude, I'm outta here!"
  • "My mom’s dead"
  • "I GET HALF!"


  • Running Gag: Whenever Joseph sees anything freaky or disturbing (most likely due to it focusing on a character voiced by Lovell), he runs off in cowardice.
  • When Joseph was introduced, Lovell tried to imitate Logan's Koopa voice for Joseph. As time has passed, however, Joseph's voice has become more distinct.
  • It is revealed in Bowser Junior's 1st Grade! Part 3 that Joseph has braces.
  • He is one of the most athletic characters in the series. In SuperPowers!, he has super speed. Even without super speed, he can run really fast. He is outranked by Tom Brady in the List of character attribute rankings.
  • Joseph's plush is the same one used for Koopa Troopa, which is why Koopa doesn't appear any more.
    • The plush is a Goldie Koopa plush.
    • The first Joseph plush was used from around 2014 to Early 2015.
  • Joseph may have very well gone insane by the time of Joseph's House!, as his current living conditions are so poor that he might have snapped as a result, considering how indifferent he is about his home's current condition.
  • Also, misleadingly revealed in Joseph Moves In! Joseph assumed that he was in fact the killer of his mother, having most likely killed her over a sandwich, possibly revealing that he lied about his mom's death, which was later revealed to not be the case.
  • Since Joseph's Mom revealed she won the lottery and decided to start a new family without him while he was asleep on Halloween in 2015, Joseph's tormenting attempts to kill in his sleep in Joseph Moves In! may, in fact, be his misled fears of his mom's lies being true coming to light.
  • Due to the above fact, there is a conspiracy that Joseph will not be in the series for a year due to him being killed in Cody the Magician!. After Cody left, a screen popped up saying One Year Later, meaning that a Goomba could be replacing him for a year This was later proven wrong after the upload of Bowser Junior goes to the Sun.
  • It was revealed in Bowser Junior's 8th Birthday! that Joseph might be a cannibal since he mentioned some things that sounded very cannibalistic.
  • Joseph mentioned in Bowser Junior's Playtime that he isn't very good with saving money because he said that every time he sees a gumball machine, he has to get a gumball.
  • According to Bowser Junior's Halloween Problem! and Cool Cody!, Joseph's mother is "dead".
  • As revealed in Bowser Junior's Lottery Ticket!, Joseph's favorite NBA team is Miami Heat. 
  • Joseph has a speech impediment as seen in Pop Rocks and Coke! and American Idol: Season 2, Episode 1 where he says "whore" instead of "horse", and says "s**t" instead of "hit".
  • Joseph can also be considered the middle of the three due to the fact that he was born in August (revealed in Cody's Birthday) and Junior was born in September.
  • In Joseph's House!, his house was revealed, making him the last of the quarter to do so. It was also the first video that was centered around Joseph.
  • According to Logan himself in a stream with SML Reviewer, Joseph is adopted. However, Joseph is not aware of this, despite admitting it in Truth Or Dare!. Joseph may possibly be a kleptomaniac because in Joseph's House!, he claims he steals a lot of stuff.
  • It could be possible that Joseph has murdered his mother as revealed in Joseph Moves In which was revealed to not be the case..
  • It was confirmed in SuperPowers 2 that Joseph killed his mother since he slit her with a knife on her neck.
    • It is unknown if he killed his dad.
    • However, in Joseph's Mom! it is revealed that Joseph did not kill his mom.
  • Joseph was revealed to be bisexual in SuperPowers 2, as he wanted to "plow Junior so damn hard." This leaves him as hypocritical, as he criticizes Cody for being gay when Joseph himself is partly gay.
    • However, that video is non-canonical.
  • Joseph has the most unnormal last name out of the three.
  • Joseph is possible the only out of the 3 not to have parents (Since his mom left him and we don't know what has happened to his dad).
  • In The Past Machine!, Joseph wishes for his mom to come back, and she says "Joseph? I just saw you 5 minutes ago", claiming that she still keeps an eye on him.
  • In Cool Cody!, Bowser Junior says "And Joseph is gonna get his braces wet", meaning that they are gonna do things.
  • The last name "His Friend From School" is a reference to Joseph being friends with Bowser Junior.
  • In Logan Reacts: Pinch Pinch Pinch, Logan stated he wants Joseph to be a Red Koopa, but he currently has no idea how to make that happen.[2]
  • He has stated that he has hidden a body at a beach, this means it is possible that he has killed a person or multiple people before.[3]
  • In Joseph Moves In!, Junior and Cody gives Joseph $20,000 (from a hot dog eating contest which Cody won) to buy an apartment but in later episodes, Joseph says that he still lives in his old house.
  • Joseph is diabetic, as shown in Jeffy's Energy Drink! When he had a seizure after taking a sip of his Monster Energy drink.
  • In more detail, In an earlier season where Joseph appeared his personality was just a typical cool kid who was into sports and video games, but in later seasons and episodes such as Joseph's house and bowser juniors 8th Birthday, Joseph was personality changed to a poor, cannibalistic, and crazy person.
  • Whenever Bowser or Chef Pee Pee is around with Bowser Junior and his friends including Joseph, Joseph is always quiet due to the fact that he is shy because of the joke that Lovell voices Bowser and Chef Pee Pee and Joseph.
  • In Bowser Junior's New Room!, it's revealed that Joseph usually stalks Junior every night while he's sleeping.
  • It is possible that Joseph's line "He's just a doll!" is based off whenever Elmo from Seasame Street points out to his friend Zoe, her pet rock is just a rock, with Elmo telling her "Rocco's just a rock!".
  • According to Logan he always wanted Joseph to break his shell to replace it with a new red one.


  1. This was a joke, starting in Bowser Junior's Cellphone, when Bowser misunderstood what Joseph said. Eventually this actually became his surname, proof of this is in American Idol: Season 2, Episode 1 ( and many other videos.
  2. Logan Reacts: Pinch Pinch Pinch (
  3. Cody's Mistake! (
