In the IFC series, he lives with Spencer Chinoy and Sean S. Baker. In the Fox series, he lives with a boy named Jimmy Bender (played by Seth Green). Greg underwent many changes throughout the course of his career. The original Greg had buttons for eyes and did not have a mouth.

This makes Blah very upset, as he insists that Blah is his gimmick. Blah was another puppet who underwent changes between series.
