In "Dale Be Not Proud", Bobby temporarily takes over Mike Soto's job of hosting the morning announcements for school. In the episode Ho Yeah!, Mike and his mother notice Peggy Hill when she is unwittingly dressed as a prostitute while studying at the public library. Mike then approaches her and compliments her on her looks. His father is a police officer who has worked at Tom Landry Middle as a substitute teacher. He is voiced by Johnny Hardwick.
