Depiction in the series

Season two

Spike and Peewee S2E21
Peewee first appears in the season two episode Dragon Quest. Spike and a group of teenage dragons, led by Garble, go on a "dragon raid" with the intent of destroying a nest of phoenix eggs. However, they find that most of the eggs have already hatched, except for one. After the two adult phoenixes and their hatched chicks give Garble and the other teenagers the slip, Spike finds the unhatched egg.

Garble and his friends tell Spike to smash the egg, but Spike refuses and instead protects it from the other dragons. Twilight Sparkle, Rainbow Dash, and Rarity appear to defend Spike, and Twilight teleports all of them away to safety. Spike keeps the unhatched phoenix egg, and when the phoenix inside hatches, he names him Peewee—appropriating a nickname the teenage dragons gave Spike—and welcomes him to the family.

Season three

At the beginning of the season three episode Just for Sidekicks, a gallery of photos on a shelf depicts Spike looking after Peewee. One picture depicts Spike sharing some ice cream with him, and another depicts the carton ending up on Twilight's head, covering her in ice cream. The final picture shows Spike returning Peewee to his parents.

Season eight

Spike and Peewee sharing a hug S8E11
In Molt Down, Spike and Rarity visit the phoenix nests (Spike to see Peewee, Rarity to pick up some phoenix feathers for her latest design), where they find that Peewee has grown into a matured phoenix and moved into his own nest. Spike tries to greet Peewee with a hug, but their close contact irritates the stone scale on Spike's cheek, causing Spike to jump away in pain.
