Hey, Greg!"
"Hey, fella.
Preston to Greg

Preston Mudd is a boy who appears in Diary of a Wimpy Kid and its film adaptation with the same name.


Diary of a Wimpy Kid[]

He was named Athlete of the Month for being the best player during the Phys Ed basketball unit and had a picture of him put up in the hallway with his last name and first initial, "P. Mudd", below it. Other kids quickly realized that "P. Mudd" sounded like 'pee mud' when said aloud and made fun of Preston for it; according to Greg, that resulted in him losing his fame. The incident is noted by Greg as a precaution against being too good an athlete.[1]

Preston isn't mentioned by name again, but makes possible further appearances later in Diary of a Wimpy Kid, where a silhouetted character resembling him appears when Mr. Underwood is demonstrating wrestling holds,[2], and in The Last Straw, where a boy resembling Preston can be seen during the Valentine's Dance.[3]

Diary of a Wimpy Kid (2010 film)[]

In the movie, Preston appears at the beginning when he says hi to Greg, who doesn't recognize him. A plaque with him on it can also be seen when kids are running away from Darren Walsh in a hallway.
