Parker Rooney is the tritagonist in Liv and Maddie. He is the youngest child of the family and is currently 16-years old. Parker tends to be quite adventurous, mischievous, and courageous.

Parker is portrayed by Tenzing Norgay Trainor.


Parker is an adventurous, mischievous, and courageous boy to a manipulative, scheming, teenage inventor. He shows a tendency to behave older than he is with his friends and family. Despite he is usually being lazy, quite messy, and childish, Parker has a great love for science, inventing things, and for his family.



Parker was born to Pete and Karen Rooney, being the last child they had. He was born and raised in Stevens Point, Wisconsin. It is implied by Liv that Parker has always been very childish. In Twin-A-Rooney she says (speaking to Parker and Joey), "I was so worried you two had grown up while I was gone."


Parker is first introduced in the series in Twin-A-Rooney. In the episode, Parker, along with Joey, plan to take advantage of their parents' distraction towards Liv and Maddie. And build a bro cave in their room, using household appliances such as the refrigerator, the TV, etc. Eventually, their parents find out after the refrigerator falls down from upstairs to downstairs.


Parker is a young boy with dark brown hair and brown eyes. He is quite skinny and also has tan skin. Parker is usually seen in a regular T-shirt and pants. He also is usually seen with the front of his hair gelled up. Parker is short at the beginning of the series, but since season 2 has gotten taller, and he is currently the height of his two sisters, but is still much shorter than the tallest Rooney, Joey, as he was always tall.

Strengths and Weaknesses


As revealed in the opening credits of the show, and in the episode "Sleep-A-Rooney" Parker is seen to be good at karate. He is shown to be a science genius in various episodes, even good enough to enter a high school science club despite only being thirteen at the time. Even though Parker isn't as good in PE, he can score a goal in soccer.


P.E. (Physical Education), He's afraid of thunder. Parker's inventions are known to blow up or fail. He also has an addiction to digging tunnels, that Maddie had to confiscate all his equipment.

That's what it looks like when a girl is happy to see you.


Keep going until you get to cupcake.


But her memory still lives on. In the dirt back.
I want people to talk about this party at recess, so I can get invited to other parties.


Don't look at me, you raised him.



Fa La La La-A-Rooney

I'm sorry, Munch, I had no idea you cared.
Is it snowing on Christmas?


Really? Because you don't look a day over gorgeous.


Did you think that was the worst thing ever?
