He first appeared in Part 2 of the First Grade series, where he replaced Mr. Wilfred as the teacher after Joseph accidentally broke Mr. Wilfred's hip while he tried to take Joseph's phone.
In his debut appearance, Mr. Winkle revealed that he is a sex offender (to confusion and little reaction at first) and demonstrated perverted characteristics as well. He was arrested by Officer Goodman in Part 3 of Bowser Junior's First Grade after taking "school photos" of the students on his iPhone. The puppet for Mr. Winkle is from silly puppets George.
