Trivia

  • Although Sheldon (who frequently tends to exaggerate or even outright lie about his childhood on TBBT) has claimed that Billy was one of his childhood bullies, events involving Billy that were seen in Young Sheldon appear to disprove those claims as he is most often merely seen being clueless and dimwitted, often having little idea what goes on around him most of the time.
  • Despite initially acting like a bully, over the course of Young Sheldon he's become more happily-dim-but-harmless, and even seems to like spending time with Sheldon on occasion.
