Charlie the Chicken Leg is an imaginary friend who looks like a large drumstick with skiny arms and legs with four apendages on his hands, large eyes and mouth with an exposed bone attached to his legs.
Charlie was imagined by a child in a weight loss program who seemed to have been starving himself, thus imagining many food friends, including Charlie and his friend, George the Cookie. It seemed he didn't like his creator much, as he had 'flashbacks' of darker times. But luckily, Fosters took him and his fellow food friends to their home and they took residence near the top of the building.
Because of the circumstances of his creation, Charlie seems to be very hostile and paranoid, thinking everyone else his is enemy due to the fact that he is actually edible. Charlie met with Mac and Bloo when they were lost in the house and was willing to help them, but Bloo, in a feeding frenzy, scared him off.
Charlie later met up with Wilt, Coco and Eduardo and was chased to the roof, where his fate is now unknown.
- Charlie's name is surprisingly similar to the pop-up book, Charlie the Chicken.
- His attitude seems to be very similar to a soldier who had survived a war, with a high amount of paranoia and having flash backs of 'the dark times.'
- He and his fellow food friend, George, are the only two known food imaginary friends besides the pizza Terrence imagined in the episode, Seeing Red, the giant gummi bear friend, the chocolate bunny friend Goo created in "Bus the Two of Us" the pancake friend from "Emancipation Complication," the peanut friend, and Sam Burger.
- When Bloo first saw him, he thought he was an hallucination created from his hunger, thus believing he was Mac. Despite this, he was more than willing to eat him.
