The owner of the bar Pickles frequents, The Rusty Bucket. Her name is a play on the phrase "I need a bidet." It is implied that she is a pre-op transsexual, and though it is made obvious to viewers, none of the characters in the show seem to realize it.

* WholesomeCrossdresser: A pre-op transsexual she may be, but she's still as good-natured as any other inhabitant of the Valley.

* BeehiveHairdo



* {{Hypocrite}}: In "Pickles' Li'l Amazons", the Debbies are singing a heartfelt rendition of "Greatest Love of All". They look especially tender as they sing the line "I believe that children are our future; teach them well and let them lead the way." The Debbies show nothing but cruelty and contempt to Milo and his friends, who are children.
* OnlySixFaces: They're all eerily identical. Lampshaded by Pickles in "Bucketheads" when she answered the door and said, "Either I'm ''really'' smashed or you and your friends look exactly alike."

Added DiffLines:

* LighterAndSofter: The cartoon depicts her as upbeat and in denial about her lowly status, in contrast to the book ''Creepy Susie And 13 Other Tragic Tales For Troubled Children'', which depicts her as bullied, unhappy, and lonely. She worships the Debbies in the cartoon, but kills them in their sleep and eats all their pizza crusts in the book.

Added DiffLines:

* BeehiveHairdo: Well wig, but it does resemble a tall beehive. A flashback episode even reveals she had very tall hair as a teenager, resembling one of the Debbies.


Added DiffLines:

* BeehiveHairdo: Her hive is a very elaborately curled red one.


Added DiffLines:

* TrueBlueFemininity: She wears a long blue curve hugging dress with pointed boobs and even in a flashback episode, even as a man she wore blue.

* CloserToEarth: Pickles is arguably more grounded in reality than Bob is (despite being a drunk) and acts as a voice of reason when his optimism shifts into blind naïveté. She voices her contempt regarding how the Hill people treat Valley folk, is more than aware of what assholes the Debbies, Jared, and Blaine are, and recognizes that Mrs. Hubbard, a gun toting, bible thumping spinster, is the last person who should be giving out advice on childcare.

* {{Transsexual}}: She's a pre-op trans woman. The money she earns from working The Rusty Bucket (most of which comes from Pickles, thanks to her alcoholism) goes towards her gender reassignment operation (which isn't outright stated, but even the most naive viewer can figure it out).

* ADayInTheLimelight: In "Milo, Interrupted" and "Flush, Flush, My Sweet Helga".



* ADayInTheLimelight: Debbie Klimer was the victim of a botched plastic surgery that made her look hideously deformed. The Valley people adopted her until she could get the surgery needed to make her look identical to the other Debbies again.

Added DiffLines:

* DemotedToExtra: Believe it or not, a lot of the cast debuted in a book titled ''Creepy Susie and 13 Other Tragic Tales for Troubled Children''. Mind you, she's only significant on the title and cover as it's an Anthology, but it's still kind of fascinating that it's her specific and not the Oblong children.
