Watching Big Bang Theory, we have seen Penny and Sheldon’s relationship evolve from enemies to a bond of brother and sister. Even mother and son at times! Watching Sheldon’s childhood in Young Sheldon, we wonder, was it Penny’s similarities with Cooper’s twin sister Missy that made him fond of her despite her being a total opposite?
Well, apart from the sound of the names, the two important female characters in Sheldon’s life have many things in common. The brief moments of an adult Missy well portrayed that Sheldon’s twin sister is a desirable, beautiful and confident woman. In fact, Young Penny’s debut also supposedly gave Young Sheldon a hard time just like Missy.
Until we watched Young Sheldon, these were the only qualities that Penny and Missy Cooper shared; which seemed very common. But there is definitely more to it. What else? Let’s find out!
The Eye Rolls
Sheldon can be quite exhausting at times and we all agree to it. It is not once or twice but many times that we have seen Penny in Big Bang Theory and Missy in Young Sheldon roll their eyes in the same manner. Especially whenever Sheldon says something about the social norms and takes away the fun from everything!
The Tone Of The Voice
While the two female characters grow up to be beautiful young adults that every man desires, there is something not so girly about them. Yes, the tone of their voice. While they exactly know how to sweet talk for the things they want, we have often seen Penny and Missy replying in a husky and annoyed voice whenever Sheldon calls them out!
They’re Protective of Sheldon
That’s right! No matter how odd that sounds, we have seen Young Missy killing mosquitoes and shoo away dogs to keep Sheldon safe. On the other hand, Penny too handled the insects in Sheldon’s washroom or saved him from birds or animals whenever he came across one.

Both Love Socializing
Penny has thrown many parties in her apartment. Be it Halloween or a football game night — Penny loves being around people, food and music. That’s exactly what we noticed in young Missy. She is seen enjoying parties, dance wherever there is music, insist on getting pretty dresses and desire to visit the top restaurants of the town.
Their Similar Mannerism
We love how both the characters are totally chilled out! One can tell from the way they sleep; arms spread out on the bed, legs slipping out from the blanket and mouth wide open. Clearly, the most peaceful vision you’ll witness! Not to forget the carefree way they watch the television.

They Aren’t Exactly Smart
There is no cordial way to say it but both Penny and Missy are not very intelligent women. While there emotional quotients are a 10/10, their intelligence quotients might not even pass the average level. No wonder Sheldon is always correcting them. They might be more interested in Cyndi Lauper than Sheldon’s historic String Theory.
Their Love For Sheldon
No matter how annoyed they may be with Sheldon, Penny and Missy are always in for a hug! They might hate him for ruining fun moments or not understanding social mannerisms but it never affects their affection and protective instincts towards him.
Our genius might say that Sheldon is better off without his twin sister but the truth is he clearly loves her and misses her! The proof is his unusual bond with Penny who possesses so many similarities with his twin sister, Missy who Sheldon might consider dumb but loves with all his heart.
