In the episode "Bonnibel Bubblegum", it is revealed that he was originally Lolly, a female bubblegum humanoid created by Princess Bubblegum when the latter was younger. However, all of Bubblegum's intelligent relative-creations turned against her, as Lolly was in cahoots with Bonnie's uncle Gumbald and his plan to overthrow their creator and build a candy city. In order to be in charge, Gumbald, Lolly, and Chicle formulated a "happy juice", a poison that would make Bonnie docile and simpleminded like Mr. Cream Puff. While the three were celebrating their plan, however, Lolly and Chicle were fooled into eating happy juice-induced cupcakes made by Gumbald. The poison intern transformed Lolly into the simpleminded piñata Manfried.
Manfried is a typical piñata: donkey-like form and paper-mâché body, colored horizontally with alternating strips of green and pink. Ordinarily, he remains in a single position, only moving his mouth, but he's also able to move his arms and hold a megaphone, despite the fact that he has no fingers.
As Lolly, she appears as a somewhat elderly woman, she is short and slightly overweight. She has a beehive hairdo and wears a tan tunic and brown headband.
As Manfried, he is recognizable due to his plain, seemingly emotionless voice; however, he displays a compassionate and friendly personality. Manfried is frightened easily, as shown by his exchange with Finn (below).
As Lolly she displays a caring side to her niece/creator as she seemingly enjoying spending time with her. However, she had a darker side as she appeared ready to turn on Bonnibel after being manipulated by Gumbald and even found Chicle's cruel remark about the future princess amusing. Lolly appears to be a bit clueless, as after witnessing Chicle transform into a candy person, she ate her cupcake before realizing too late of what it does as she was transformed as well.
