Sheldon is not the only Cooper we can’t get enough of. Missy Cooper, Sheldon’s twin sister, is a little dynamite on ‘Young Sheldon’. She is the best sister one could ask for and here’s why!
Don’t be fooled by her pet eyes and sweet smiles! She is the perfect mixture of sugar and spice and is packed full of sass. Sheldon might be the star of ‘Young Sheldon‘, but it’s his twin sister Missy Cooper who brings life into it. The bond between Missy and her siblings is not just a fun one, but also precious. Here’s why Missy Cooper is the sister you’d love even when you don’t want to.
Missy Cooper is the best sister for Sheldon.
- Missy is the classic sibling
- Missy always has the best comebacks
- Missy is always up for a hug
Missy is the classic sibling
The bond between siblings is a special one. While most of it means loving, supporting, protecting, and caring for each other (because, well, genes!), it also means taking every chance to land each other in trouble. In that sense, Missy Cooper is the classic sibling who is always getting her brothers into trouble. Sheldon has a higher intelligent quotient than his sister, but Missy sure has him, and Georgie, beat on more than one occasion in ‘Young Sheldon’ when it comes to playing pranks. Missy always one-ups his brothers, getting them into trouble in funny and mischievous ways.
Missy always has the best comebacks
Missy Cooper is a big, bold, in-your-face personality inside a little girl’s body. She is not the one to let even one sassy moment pass. The Cooper brothers are always in for sassy responses from their sister as Missy always speaks her mind out loud and ‘Young Sheldon’ stands witness to that. The pilot episode shows Missy sitting on the couch with Sheldon as he watches “Professor Proton” on TV. Missy points it out to Sheldon that she fails to understand why “Duck Tales” was off-limits and Sheldon simply replies, “Because we don’t learn anything watching Duck Tales”. An annoyed Missy does her classic eye-roll and says, “It’s TV … we aren’t supposed to learn”. Step back people, Missy Cooper is the queen!
Missy is always up for a hug
‘Young Sheldon’ confirms how Missy Cooper might be the sister that lands you in trouble, but she is also the one who will always be there to hug you whenever you need it. No matter how annoyed she might have been with Sheldon for ruining her moments of fun or for not acting as per social mannerisms, she is always there to comfort him. She loves him unconditionally and is always ready to offer him her shoulder to cry on every time things don’t go his way.
A fan compared young Missy with adult Penny in the manner they both were always there to protect and comfort Sheldon. The fan said,
“Young Missy is just like adult Penny. I find their mannerisms, tone and use of various phrases very similar. I know it’s pure coincidence but I find it sweet that Sheldon was surrounded in childhood by Missy and then Penny as an adult. I know adult Sheldon whines about his sister and says she tortured him etc but anyone who watches YS can see that’s not exactly true”.
Missy is protective of her brother
In more than one way, ‘Young Sheldon’ shows how Missy Cooper acts not only as Sheldon’s twin sister but sometimes as his elder sister as well. She is extremely protective of him and is always ready to shield him from any danger. No matter how odd or ridiculous Sheldon’s idea of danger sounds Missy can always be relied upon to save him from dogs or mosquitoes. Missy even acts like a badass when Sheldon is being bullied. She takes the matter into her own hands and handles the situation by putting her master-mind into action.
Missy loves her brother
Missy loves Sheldon unconditionally.
‘Young Sheldon’ shows Missy Cooper being the neglected, less smart sister of Sheldon Cooper. There are instances when she cries for attention, but she always lends her ear to her brother’s problems and tries everything in her power to sort it out. She always has the best wishes for Sheldon in her heart. In fact, she hopes to be good at something like Sheldon is in the academic field, but never once does she feel jealous of his achievements, success, and attention.
