As of "Ike's Wee Wee", his character began to make recurring appearances throughout the episodes as the owner of the main bar, until he was reduced to a background redneck after Season Seven, including being replaced by Skeeter as the owner and bartender at the local South Park bar.
In his first appearances in "Big Gay Al's Big Gay Boat Ride" and in "Damien", he is seen working at Sports Book as a bookie. His first appearance as a bartender was in "Ike's Wee Wee", where he serves a drink to Mr. Mackey with the intention of making him feel better.
The character's most notable appearance was in "Sexual Harassment Panda", where he is first seen serving Peetie at the bar before one of his patrons starts an argument against him. Throughout the episode, he is seen trying to calm his patrons after they start an argument multiple times, satirizing the common cliché from films and television originating from many westerns.
In "I'm a Little Bit Country", he appears prominently among the various supporters of the war.
The character was reduced to a background redneck after Season Seven, including being replaced by Skeeter. He has since started making background appearances with other rednecks in later episodes.
He finally plays another notable role in "It's a Jersey Thing", where he tells other citizens about Snooki's presence in his bar. A possible script or animation error names him Skeeter in this episode.
He, along with other old characters, makes a cameo in the opening of Current Seasons, where he can be seen next to the Bar with other rednecks.
The bartender has blond hair tied in a ponytail and a goatee. He has a pencil propped up in one of his ears and wears a blue coat with a pen in one of the pockets, as well as a brown belt with purple pants and black boots. He is notable for having longer legs than most other adults, similar to Farmer Bill.
In "W.T.F.", he got a complete character redesign, now having a pair of visible front pockets and white buttons on his coat, as well as less contrasting colors on his clothes and an all-new face shape with his hair now having sideburns.
Since his bar's most frequent patrons were generally close-minded and uninviting, the Bartender typically served as the straight man to them, regularly attempting to water down their hostility towards whoever they "didn't take kindly". The bartender is easy-going and relaxed. He is authoritative when it comes to keeping his customers under control, and tranquil.
- His name was possibly Skeeter when the bar was first named, as the current owner was never seen working in his place until Season Nineteen. The writers possibly remembered that there was a more prominent character with the same name and decided to put him as the bar owner, which erases the name "Skeeter" from Bartender.
