This particular Badnik was first seen in the Emerald Hill Zone of Sonic the Hedgehog 2, where he would be seen climbing up trees.

Coconuts was featured more prominently on the animated series Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog. There, he had been demoted to Dr. Robotnik's janitor, a position he was not very happy with. Even though he was seen in the show's introduction sequence, Coconuts did not appear as regularly as fellow Badniks Scratch and Grounder. Whenever he did appear, he would usually attempt to go after Sonic himself, and trying to make sure Scratch and Grounder didn't beat him to it.

Oddly enough, here, Coconuts' head was colored light brown rather than orange, and his face a light orange rather than the fleshtone used in the games and cartoon. However, this same color scheme was also used for the character's sprites in Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine (even though the box art used the cartoon's color scheme).

Unlike Scratch and Grounder, Coconuts appeared prominently a few more times in the comics, such as when he tried to capture the Freedom Fighters in an attempt to get on Robotnik's favorite Badniks list, and when he tried to prevent "an anteater" (Bunnie Rabbot, actually) from stealing Robotnik's Chaos Emeralds. Like his old costars, Coconuts' last appearance in the comic was part of a flashback in issue #57.
