They first appear together in the Pillow World. Jay is seen pretending to be the dragon that Finn once slayed many years ago, and Bonnie is seen wearing a hat similar to Finn's, pretending to be him and acting out his role in the slaying of the dragon. They bring him lunch while he is "chopping wool" and run into his arms. When their "grandpillow" Quilton arrives, they run into his arms as well.
After Quilton tells Finn of the door back into the normal world, teenage Jay and Bonnie travel with their father to see the oracle Rasheeta. They travel back with Finn to their house when Finn realizes that he does not want to leave.
As adults they stay by Finn's deathbed, Bonnie crying and Jay looking sad. They tell Finn that they love him. When they say "dad," in Finn's last moments, he thinks they are saying "dead," and he tells them he is "not yet" dead.
Jay and Bonnie are both half human and half Pillow Person. Like their father, Finn, they have short, blonde, human-looking hair. They also both have light pink skin like their mother's, and have black dots for eyes like most other characters in the show. They appear to have thumbs when they grow up, unlike the other Pillow People; this might be because of their half-human heritage.
- Jay as a teenager seemed to greatly resemble Finn, in both physical appearance and clothing. He wore a blue shirt and a backpack that was two shades of green. He also had a small dagger on the right side of his waist that looked like a miniature version of Finn's Demon Sword.
- The names Jay and Bonnie could be derivatives of Jake and Bonnibel, who both are very important people in Finn's life in the normal world.
- Bonnie as an adult, bears an uncanny resemblance to Minerva Campbell.
- Both children in their toddler years bear a striking resemblance to the Hero's son and daughter from Dragon Quest V.
