Mr. Peebles is the secondary main character in the Magilla Gorilla animated television segments, which came as part of The Magilla Gorilla Show. His voice was originated by Howard Morris.

Mr. Peebles is the owner of Peebles Pet Shop, which houses Magilla Gorilla until he is adopted, which isn't going to be anytime soon (unless you count Wanda Sykes adopting him in Scooby-Doo and Guess Who?)

In DC Comics' reboot, his name is Mel Peebles, a man who adopts Magilla and his younger sister, Maggie. When Magilla grows up and becomes a big Hollywood actor, Peebles manages him. Maggie becomes an estranged junkie and her boyfriend ends up killing Peebles, orchestrated by Beegle Beagle to frame Magilla so his rival, Grape Ape, would get all his roles.
