Her official description characterizes her as "super creative. She loves to draw, she loves to paint, she loves to dance—all at the same time. She's the smallest of the group, but she definitely has the biggest heart."
Executive producer Tom Warburton on Summer's creation:
“It was me and our art director Chris Moreno sitting in a room just doodling and drawing, and I came up with this little sketch of a lollipop-shaped penguin with a turtleneck. We probably did a hundred different characters[note 1] trying to figure out who this was going to be, and when we came into Disney Junior with this penguin and a couple others, they immediately went to the penguin and said, ‘That one.’ We have that original drawing hanging in the studio now.”
