Princeton is a 22 year old college graduate, with a B.A. in English. Princeton can be described as a wide-eyed, naive individual, who is open to taking on life's challenges, and always taking them on head first. Despite this, however, Princeton can get discouraged quite easily.
He much resembles Kingston Livingston III (and a bit of Guy Smiley) from Sesame Street.

Trekkie Monster- Trekkie isn't seen around Princeton all that much, but the two synchronized in, "The Internet is For Porn," showing some sort of a friendship.
Lucy the Slut- Princeton and Lucy don't get along. Lucy does not approve of Princeton, and even attempts to break him and Kate up for good. After recovering from the hospital as a reborn Christian, it is unknown how she and Princeton relate.
Mrs. Thistletwat- The two never interact. Princeton dislikes Mrs. Thistletwat just as much as Kate does.
Bad Idea Bears- Princeton does not like these two. They are always trying to cause trouble for him, and even at one point try to get him to commit suicide.
Type of Puppet
Princeton is a single-rod Puppet, which means if the puppeteer is right-handed, the right hand goes inside the puppet and controls the mouth. If they are left-handed, it is vice versa. The puppeteer's left hand holds the rod attached to the puppet's left hand, and the puppet's right hand is pinned to its side. Should the puppet need to manipulate a prop, the puppeteer holds the puppet's hand and the prop, creating the illusion that the puppet is holding the object.
