Upload any pictures of Gunter here as long as its appropriate.


Gunter's page on the Cartoon Network website explains a lot: "Gunter is the name the Ice King gives to all of his penguin servants, yet he pronounces it differently depending on the penguin's personality".

  • Gunter, for some reason, was dubbed the most evil creature that Marceline's Dad had ever seen, indicating that one of Ice King's penguins may secretly be evil and smarter than others realize.
  • Although Gunter is a penguin, he makes a "wenk" sound.
  • The father of the pink kitten that comes out of the egg Gunter nurtures is unknown.
  • In the episode, "Holly Jolly Secrets Part II," BMO deciphers a complicated code in the Ice King's crying, which, when printed, reveals an image of Gunter.
  • In "What is Life?," the Ice King comments on Gunter gaining weight. This may foreshadow Gunter's pregnancy, though it could be that particular penguin was fatter than the last one he called Gunter.
  • Although the name is spelled "Gunter," it's been pronounced "Gunter," "Gunther," and "Goon-ter".[4]
  • Gunter (variations: Günther, Gunthar) is an old German name made of the words Gund ("Fight", "Battle", "War") and Heri ("Crowd", "Folk") referencing the fact that Ice King calls all his penguins Gunter, making them his army.
  • For some reason, Marceline's diary had the name Gunter on it in the episode "Marceline's Closet."
  • Gunter, according to the Ice King, likes to smash bottles and eat socks.
  • In the episode, "Holly Jolly Secrets Part I", it's revealed that any penguin closest to Ice King is "Gunter."
  • It seems that Gunter often goes into Ice King's arms as revealed in "Five Short Graybles", and stinks up Ice King's armpits.
