Voiced by: Burt Reynolds (1st film), Charlie Sheen (2nd film - speaking voice), Jesse Corti (2nd film - singing voice), Steven Weber (TV series & 3rd film)
First appearance: All Dogs Go to Heaven (1989)
Last appearance: An All Dogs Christmas Carol (1998)

A roguish German Shepherd mix and con artist.
  • Adorkable: Charlie has a much goofier and more playful streak to him in the animated series. Not near as much as Itchy but it becomes much more apparent whenever Charlie gets freaked out by something and enters panic mode.
  • Aesop Amnesia: Throughout later instalments, his old ways keep catching up on him. It seems not even residing in heaven itself can keep his vices under control.
  • All Men Are Perverts: In the sequel, he makes no hesitation during Sasha's number to jump up on stage and try to kiss her then and there. He doesn't get a chance, since he's a ghost and she can't see him, but it doesn't stop him from following her around and continuing to hit on her, eventually tricking her into kissing him, once he gets his magic collar from Red.
  • Anti-Hero: At first a Villain Protagonist, but mellows out quite a bit later on in the film and the sequels. He'd much rather spend his time goofing off than being a guardian angel, but when push comes to shove, he'll do the right thing every time.
  • Back from the Dead: Repeatedly, though the reason is always different.
  • The Charmer: Distracts Annabelle long enough to grab his watch with compliments and dancing with her. He also does this to Anne-Marie to persuade her into talking to animals for him. (As opposed to Carface, who just uses threats).
  • Everyone Has Standards: Even before Charlie fully loves Anne-Marie, he is utterly indignant when she compares his treatment of her to Carface. Furthermore, many of their employees and customers at their casino remark that Charlie treats them better than Carface does.
    • In the animated series episode "Free Nelly", he is repulsed by the abusive way a circus owner treats his elephant.
  • He-Man Woman Hater: In the episode "Miss Guidance", he comes off as rather sexist, making remarks about "Blue jobs" and "Pink jobs" which rightfully angers Sasha.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: He sacrifices himself to save Anna Marie, earning back his place in Heaven in the process.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: His old partnership with Carface would certainly indicate that he suffered from this, not realizing Carface was actively trying to do away with him until after his first death has already occurred.
  • Informed Breed:He is stated to be a mixed breed, "as mixed as they come" apparently. However he looks like a purebred German Shepard.
  • Ink-Suit Actor: In his review, Roger Ebert stated that Charlie not only contained the voice of Burt Reynolds, but a few of his mannerisms as well.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's greedy and vindictive, but ultimately proves he's a good dog.
  • Karma Houdini: The first time he dies, he only gets to Heaven because he's a dog; Anabelle couldn't find any redeeming qualities in him.
  • Large Ham: Charlie-boy's got his moments, especially when he's got a zany scheme going on.
  • Lovable Rogue: After Character Development, he settles into this. 'Cuz even with a higher moral compass, some bad habits just won't go away. After all, he's Charlie B. Barkin, conman extraordinaire!
  • Love Redeems: He comes to genuinely care for Anne-Marie, and that's what leads him to redeem himself.
  • The Nicknamer: He's implied to be the one who started referring to Ichiford as "Itchy", and calls Anne-Marie "Squeaker".
  • Papa Wolf: Not at first, but by the climax he pretty much takes on Carface's entire gang to save Anne-Marie. Granted, he gets a bit of help from King Gator, but still.
  • Punny Name: His last name, "Bark-in".
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to Itchy's blue.
  • Redemption Equals Death: In a way, he somehow manages to do this and Redemption Equals Life at the same time. He sacrifices himself to save Anne-Marie's life, thus fulfilling the Equals Death part but in the process, he earns his place in Heaven back, saving his afterlife from Hell. So his redemption both cost him his mortal life but saved his afterlife.
  • Redemption Equals Life: In a way, he somehow manages to do this and Redemption Equals Death at the same time. He sacrifices himself to save Anne-Marie's life, thus fulfilling the Equals Death part but in the process, he earns his place in Heaven back, saving his afterlife from Hell. So his redemption both cost him his mortal life but saved his afterlife.
  • Revenge Before Reason: When he first dies, he's so obsessed with getting revenge on Carface for his murder that he willingly forsakes his place in Heaven to do so.
  • Running Gag: Pulls a disgusted face each time Anne-Marie kisses him on the cheek...until the finale, when it's heartwarmingly/breakingly subverted.
  • Snap Back: In the first film he dismisses staying in Heaven both due to wanting revenge and finding the prospect of eternal paradise boring. At the end of the film, however, he's come to appreciate it. When the sequel rolls around, however, he's right back to complaining about the lack of excitement and conspiring to return to the world of the living — though come the sequel, Heaven is depicted as a much less peaceful, pleasant place.
  • Soul Jar: His watch functions as one. As long as it's intact he's immortal, but if it's destroyed he would be Dragged Off to Hell.
  • Took a Level in Badass: In the span of two films, Charlie-boy here goes from punching out gangster bulldogs to outlasting Old Scratch himself. Now that's badass!
  • Villain Protagonist: He was Carface's partner in crime and spends most of the first movie pursuing revenge. Character Development later kicks in, and though still flawed, he sheds his worst aspects for good.

First Appearance: All Dogs Go to Heaven (1989)
Last appearance: All Dogs Go to Heaven (1989)

A young orphan girl with the ability to talk to and understand animals.
  • Cheerful Child: After Charlie rescues her, she's usually rather cheery, unless she finds out he's lied to her. Which unfortunately is often.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Anne Marie isn't even namedropped in the sequels.
  • Companion Cube: Has a toy rabbit, which seems to be the only possession she owns.
  • The Cutie: Even her pouty faces are downright adorable!
  • Every Proper Lady Should Curtsy: Does this whenever she meets someone new. This got featured as an image on one of the DVD covers.
  • Friend to All Living Things: Shows genuine concern over the rats, frogs, horses and other animals she speaks with. This becomes important in the climax, when all the other dogs who hear about her kidnapping pass the messages across almost the whole city.
  • Happily Adopted: It's implied at the film's end that she'll be adopted by "the wallet family."
  • Heartwarming Orphan: She has no parents, and being adopted is her motivation in helping Charlie.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: Justified in that she's a little girl and inclined to see the best in everyone, but she tends to believe whatever she's told. Charlie lies to her quite a few times, and whenever she calls him out on it, she's quick to buy whatever fresh excuse he comes up with.
  • Ill Girl: Near the end of the film, she contracts what Flo suspects to be pneumonia. Running out into a rainstorm after overhearing Charlie declare he didn't really care about her doesn't help.
  • Innocent Blue Eyes: Fitting for a child like her.
  • Morality Pet: She becomes Charlie's. Which is ironic, since she's a human and refers to Charlie as "her dog" to other people.
  • Nice Girl: A very sweet and kind girl.
  • Parental Abandonment: And we never do find out what happened to her parents.
  • Pauper Patches: She's first seen clothed in scraps and rags, kept prisoner in The Villain's riverboat-turned-casino. She gets much better clothes once the Wallet couple adopts her.
  • Raven Hair, Ivory Skin: A very cute-looking girl with pale skin, huge blue eyes and dark hair.
  • Shopping Montage: Charlie takes her out and buys her a bunch of new clothes, theoretically so she can get parents.
  • Speaks Fluent Animal: The entire reason Carface kidnapped her was so she could use this ability to help him win big at the races.
  • Totem Pole Trench: Dons a fake mustache and stands on top of Itchy and Charlie so they can place a bet on a horse race.

    Carface Carruthers
Voiced by: Vic Tayback (1st film), Ernest Borgnine (Sequels & TV series)
First appearance: All Dogs Go to Heaven (1989)
Last appearance: An All Dogs Christmas Carol (1998)

A shifty, psychotic mixed American Pit Bull Terrier/Bulldog gangster.
  • Bad Boss: Constantly abuses his minions, and it's Killer who takes the brunt of his abuse. It's also mentioned in the first film that he treats his customers at the casino very poorly, especially without Charlie to get in his way.
  • Big Bad: Of the first movie. While he doesn't return to this status, both sequels keep him in a rather important role...minus Villain Decay. Shifts to Anti-Villain in the TV Series and finally performs a Heel–Face Turn in the Christmas Special.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: He's a pretty vicious gangster to start of with, though as the afterlife mythos continue into the franchise, he finds himself playing second fiddle to literal demons and spirits.
  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: He betrays and sells out Charlie multiple times across the entire series.
  • Cigar Chomper: Is almost never seen without a stogie in his mouth.
  • Deal with the Devil: Makes one with Red in the sequel for a collar allowing him to remain physical on Earth. He didn't know he was selling his literal soul at the time...Red did.
    • Heavily implied to happen again in the TV series when Belladonna introduces herself as Carface's new boss.
    • Kind of makes one with Belladonna in the third movie. In exchange for getting all the Christmas gifts in the city, he was supposed to help her ruin Christmas. But he underwent a Heel–Face Turn before he could.
  • Demoted to Dragon: In the sequel he's Red's lackey, and in the series he's demoted to Belladonna's.
  • The Don: He was the top dog in New Orleans' canine criminal underworld in the first film.
  • Dragged Off to Hell: Suffers this fate in the second film when Red cashes in his Deal with the Devil and claims his soul. They never explain how he got back...
  • Eaten Alive: King Gator eats him at the end of the first movie.
  • Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: The Christmas Special reveals he actually really loved and missed his mother. At the end, after his Heel–Face Turn, he goes to visit her.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: He's a horrible person, but the idea of his actions directly resulting in the death of a young crippled puppy in Christmas Carol horrifies him.
  • Evil Is Petty: In the sequel, his only major plan in regards to Gabriel's horn is using it to "open any safe or bank vault in the world." Red criticizes him for this, having far bigger plans than such "entry-level wickedness."
  • Evil Minion: While the Big Bad of the first film, whenever a new Big Bad shows up afterwards, he and Killer normally become their minion. In the second movie, it was to Red and in the series, it's normally for Belladonna. Though in the third film, he gets promoted to The Dragon.
  • Evil Sounds Raspy: He has the voice of a chronic smoker.
  • Exit, Pursued by a Big-Lipped Alligator: When we last see him alive, he's chased by King Gator.
  • Family-Friendly Firearms: He owns a laser gun in the form of a Thompson SMG. Yeah...
  • Fisher King: The casino under his management is pretty poorly run. The dogs that win their bets are given poor meat, the tables are rigged and Carface uses Anne-Marie to get inside information on bets so he can fix em and keep all the profits for himself. Something Charlie notices after hearing the complaints of the patrons yet seeing that Carface's operation wasn't suffering for it.
  • Flanderization: In the first movie, Carface was calculating and murderous, with only the occasional cartoonish moments. Through the second movie and the TV series, he becomes more and more of a petty buffoon, to the point he is outright considered pathetic enough to be redeemable in the Christmas Special.
  • Freudian Excuse: Revealed in the Christmas Special. He was thrown out of his owner's house on Christmas as a pup because his owner didn't watch him and blamed everything on him. The scene is surprisingly heartbreaking because he still dreams his owner stood up for him instead of what really happened. Even Itchy (who was playing Ghost of Christmas Past) is left feeling bad for him afterwards.
  • Greed: His main motivation in the first movie. He and Charlie were business partners initially and ran their own casino together. But he wanted it all to himself. So he framed Charlie for a crime that got him sent to prison. But when he broke out, he resorted to murder.
  • Laughably Evil: Moreso in the sequels, though he has his moments in the first movie as well. Part of this comes from being completely outclassed by far more powerful, dangerous demons.
  • The Only One: In the third movie, he's the only one who can stop Belladonna. Justified in that Charlie and company had no idea were she was hiding and he was the only one close enough to her to do it (as Belladonna is far too powerful for Charlie and friends to directly go up against). Naturally they had to make him perform a Heel–Face Turn to do it.
  • Redemption Equals Life: Ghost of Christmas Future (Charlie), revealed that if he hadn't changed, he was doomed to die and go to Hell before the next Christmas. His Heel–Face Turn saved both his earthly life and his afterlife.
  • The Scrooge: In The Christmas Special, naturally.
  • Shout-Out: His name is a pun on the movie Scarface.
  • Smug Snake: In the first movie.
  • Surrounded by Idiots: When he realizes Anna Marie has been stolen, he screams that he's surrounded by morons.
  • Took a Level in Badass: After suffering Villain Decay in the second film and being an Anti-Villain in the series, he actually becomes a good bit more threatening in the third film (though still not as much as he was in the original film). Though it also ends with him pulling a Heel–Face Turn.
  • Unexplained Recovery: The second film ends with him being Dragged Off to Hell as per his deal with Red, only for him to be back on Earth during the series with no explanation. His servitude to Belladonna would imply she released him for her purposes however.
  • Villain Decay: Heaven must've made him go soft, seeing how he goes from being the Big Bad and a competent gangster to being a bumbling Evil Minion to both Red and Belladonna.
    • Justified on both cases, seeing as how a mere gangster like him couldn't possibly muscle his way against either type of villain (though neither of them are as competent or menancing as he was in the first movie). Given his own background, it's not a stretch to assume that Carface is used to "playing the game" of survival, as he puts it himself.
  • Who's on First?: In a surprising dsplay of stupidity, he sided with Red on the second movie on the assumption failure would lead to the loss of his sole. Suffice to say, he joins his hellish master.

    Itchy Itchiford
Voiced by: Dom De Luise
First appearance: All Dogs Go to Heaven (1989)
Last appearance: An All Dogs Christmas Carol (1998)

A paranoid, nervous and cowardly Dachshund.
  • Adorkable: Not so much in the original but in the animated series, he could easily be seen as a poster child for being adorably awkward with his nervousness, shyness and short legs.
  • Ambiguously Jewish: He has a distinctly New York Jewish accent, mentions bar mitzvahs, and sure can kvetch.
  • Animal Talk
  • Back from the Dead: At first, he turns down a chance at this because he lived a full life and is content to remain in Heaven. However, in the series, he's living on Earth with Charlie to carry out his angelic missions.
  • Butt-Monkey: Gets bossed around by Charlie, Carface's gang beat him up and then Charlie leaves him a second time when he gets taken to heaven at the end of the movie.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Helps him cope with the insanity Charlie and others put him through.
  • Hypercompetent Sidekick: As he spells out in his What the Hell, Hero? speech, he saw all the grief that happened to them coming, repeatedly warning Charlie against his revenge plot, etc.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's a bit of a jerk towards Anne-Marie at first, as well as being pretty rude about the horses they're betting on, but he's not a bad guy, ultimately.
  • The Lancer: To Charlie
  • Lovable Coward: At times. Just look at how easily he panics in certain moments.
  • Meaningful Name: Poor guy seems perpetually bothered by fleas.
  • Nice Guy: He's by far the nicest character in the animated series, anyway.
  • Nice Hat: A red cap he keeps sideways.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Charlie's red.
  • Retcon: Itchiford in only his last name in the sequels. In the first movie, it's his first name (which is what Itchy is short for) and his last name is Dachshund.
  • Servile Snarker: Towards Charlie at times and especially towards Anne-Marie.
  • Species Surname: In the first movie, his name is Itchiford "Itchy" Dachshund. The later installments made Itchiford his last name.
  • Sudden Sequel Death Syndrome: The opening of the second film depicts him arriving in Heaven after choking on a chicken bone.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Itchy is much, much nicer in the sequels and animated series compared to the original movie.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Delivers a tearful speech to Charlie about his neglect, as well as the fact that Charlie's love for Anne-Marie has put Itchy and the casino in jeopardy.

Voiced by: Charles Nelson Reilly
First appearance: All Dogs Go to Heaven (1989)
Last appearance: An All Dogs Christmas Carol (1998)

A misnamed, cowardly, neurotic and bespectacled Schnauzer/poodle hybrid.
  • Afraid of Blood: Which may be why he prefers to "use the pliers".
  • Ambiguously Gay: Well, he is played by Charles Nelson Reilly. The TV series makes it a little more abundant, where he tries to flirt with Itchy, who's Disguised in Drag. His musical number in the Christmas special makes him as gay as the holiday itself (though one gag shows him with a wife and kid).
  • Butt-Monkey: Carface smokes in his face, tells him to shut up, won't listen to his opinions, screams at him...You'll start to wonder why Killer even bothers.
    • Lowering him into a piranha tank.
  • Evil Minion: To Carface normally, but in the series they're more of partners. However, he instantly joins Carface in following Belladonna when she shows up.
  • Heel–Face Turn: He does help save Anne-Marie at the end of the first movie.
  • Hidden Heart of Gold: In the episode "Sidekicked", he saves Itchy from drowning yet completely denies it.
  • Ink Suit Actors: Sports Charlies Nelson Reilly's comically oversized glasses and frequently makes his trademarked "disgusted" face.
  • Ironic Nick Name: A killer he sure ain't...
  • Minion with an F in Evil: If he isn't a Punch-Clock Villain, he's definitely this.
    Carface: Isn't this just the sweetest thing?
    Killer: Oh, it is, Boss, it really is. You know, it reminds me of when Lassie rescued-
    Carface: Shut up.
  • Nerd
  • Only One Name: The rest of the dogs all have last names. Killer on the other hand is Killer.....Just Killer.
  • Pet the Dog:
    • He doesn't seem to approve of Carface's treatment of Anne-Marie.
    • In the Christmas Special, he willingly gets Carface a Christmas present in spite of his constant abuse from him. Even Carface himself is bewildered by this.
  • Put on a Bus/The Bus Came Back: He's inexplicably absent in the second film, but returns for the TV series.
  • Scary Shiny Glasses: Briefly does this when he mentions that he has a ray gun.
  • Straw Loser: Despite Carface's Villain Decay in the TV series, he still looks rather conniving and sinister next to Killer.
  • Villain Decay: Killer was already low on the evil side of things in the first film (where he was pitiful but at least eager to help murder Charlie), but when Carface got demoted to his Bumbling Sidekick role with Belladonna in the TV series, Killer got demoted even further down.

The archangel dog in Heaven.

    King Gator
Voiced by: Ken Page
First appearance: All Dogs Go to Heaven (1989)
Last appearance: All Dogs Go to Heaven (1989)

An American alligator and voodoo witch doctor, living below the streets of New Orleans.
  • Abhorrent Admirer: Towards poor Charlie...
  • Big Damn Heroes: Shows up just in time to bite through the ropes tying Charlie to an anchor, sink Carface's ship, and eat him.
  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment:invoked He's the Trope Namer, being the eponymous big-lipped alligator.
    • Incidentally, his first scene (which provides the Trope with its name) was intended to introduce him prior to the climax, so that he'd avoid being a Deus ex Machina when he showed up to finish off Carface. It's level of success was, at worst, questionable.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: He loves singing and dancing a lot in the style of an opera singer and he has a No Indoor Voice (He even asks Charlie if he finds his voice sounds like a baritone or a tenor).
  • Camp Gay: With a capital G! He's effeminate, flamboyant, wears makeup and eye shadow and puts on a fabulous Esther Williams-style musical number, all while clearly flirting with Charlie.
  • Heel–Face Turn: He was about to eat Charlie at first, but after hearing him howl, he thinks he's a "fellow singer" and decides to spare him.
  • Gentle Giant: At least if you get onto his good side. Once he decides that he like Charlie, he spares his life and, later, saves him from Carface.
  • Homage: His first scene starts as one to King Kong. Once it goes off the rails, it becomes one to Esther Williams.
  • Large Ham: Both literally and figuratively speaking.
  • Never Smile at a Crocodile: He's a genuine threat to Charlie at first, almost eating him.
  • Offscreen Moment of Awesome: It's heavily implied he eats Carface.
  • Pet the Dog: Once he decides not to eat Charlie, he's surprisingly loyal; it's him who bails Charlie out when he's overwhelmed by Carface's gang. (And he manages to knock the cage Anne-Marie's in off the ceiling.)
  • Sapient Eat Sapient: He would have eaten Charlie and Anne-Marie, but Charlie's howl, which he found beautiful, made him change his mind.
  • Sewer Gator: He lives in the sewers of New Orleans.
  • That Reminds Me of a Song: He seems to be pretty prone to this: when Charlie howls piercingly as he's about to eat him, that's what gives him a "biiiiig thriiiilll"!
  • Trrrilling Rrrs

Voiced by: Adam Wylie
First appearance: All Dogs Go to Heaven 2 (1996)
Last appearance: "All Dogs Go to Heaven: The Series'' (1996 – 1998)

A lonely 8-year-old human boy and Sasha's owner. He believes that Charlie and Itchy are his guardian angels sent to get him back home.
  • The Artful Dodger: Seriously. The way he and his dogs broke Gabriel's horn out of the Lost and Found station was awesome!
  • Cheerful Child: Like Anne-Marrie before him, he begins to show his brighter side after befriending Charlie.
  • Parental Abandonment: Subverted. His birth mother passed away, and he's having trouble adjusting to his stepmom because he thinks she dislikes him. Thankfully, he's proven wrong at the end.
  • The Runaway: He ran away from home under the notion his family didn't want him. Thankfully, he's proven wrong as they both greatly miss and have been frantically looking for him since.
  • Spear Counterpart: To Anne-Marrie.
  • Stage Magician: The boy's surprisingly gifted with cards and other assorted tricks common with the magician trade, though the only time he's seen dressing as one is during his song number "Easy Street".

    Sasha La Fleur
Voiced by: Sheena Easton
First appearance: All Dogs Go to Heaven 2 (1996)
Last appearance: An All Dogs Christmas Carol (1998)

A beautiful Irish Setter, serene lounge singer and Charlie's love interest in the sequel.
  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: Despite claiming she wants a sophisticated, intelligent, respectful and romantic dog to be her man, she also admits that part of the reason she's attracted to Charlie is because he's a swaggering, charismatic rogue.
  • Ambiguous Syntax: She tells Charlie she's "got a kid" in an effort to get rid of him. Charlie interprets this as her being a single mother, only to discover that said kid is human ("She's got a kid kid!").
  • Bilingual Bonus: Her last name is French for "the flower." Like a flower, she's very beautiful.
  • The Chanteuse: Canine example. She earns her living this way in order to provide for David, a runaway young boy whom she's developed a close fondness for.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Whenever a character (usually Charlie) does or says something that annoys her, she'll respond with biting wit.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: In a manner of speaking. Charlie doesn't exactly make a great first impression on her, as he spends most of their early scenes together more-or-less sexually harassing her (feeding her cheesy pickup lines, following her home, tricking her into kissing him), so she understandably can't stand him at first. Through the events of the film, especially with how he helps her take care of David, she sees his better qualities and eventually falls for him.
  • Does Not Like Men: Her entire introduction song "Count Me Out" is about how she's not interested in a relationship. Presumably, she dislikes most of the male dogs she's met because most of them are jerks. Charlie is initially no exception, but she warms to him once his nobler qualities start to come on display.
  • Hello, Nurse!: Is this trope to canines as evidenced during her debut song Count Me Out. Her entire musical number is drowned out by the onslaught of cat-calls and wolf-whistles she gets from her male audience.
  • Iconic Sequel Character: She was absent in the first movie, though after debuting in the second movie, she stuck as a main character in the TV series.
  • Informed Breed:Is stated to be an Irish Setter, but looks more like a Saluki.
  • Lyrical Dissonance: Her entire musical act is a silky, seductive number with lyrics that say, in a no shortage of ways, "Go away and leave me alone."
  • Plucky Girl: Maybe not Manic Pixie Dream Girl level of optimism, but she's nonetheless optimistic despite her less-than-ideal life as a street dog, going out of her way to care for a runaway human child without expecting anything in return. She even perks Charlie up when she senses his depression, leading to their Falling-in-Love Montage.
  • The Tease: Subverted in that it's All Part of the Show. She'll flirt and flounce during her musical number, but isn't otherwise flirtatious.

First appearance: An All Dogs Christmas Carol (1998)
Last appearance: An All Dogs Christmas Carol (1998)

A crippled puppy who nevertheless doesn't complain about it. He is Martha's pet.
  • Expy: He's based off of Tiny Tim from the original A Christmas Carol.
  • Morality Chain: To Carface. Timmy is a pup who is put in jeopardy by Carface's greed in the third film, which is ultimately what convinces him to perform his Heel–Face Turn and save Christmas. He even yells "This is for Timmy!" when he destroys Belladonna's machine, showing how important the little guy ended up being to him.
  • Morality Pet: He ends up being this to Carface.
  • Nice Guy: A sweet puppy.

Voiced by: Bebe Neuwirth
First appearance: All Dogs Go to Heaven: The Series (1996 – 1998)
Last appearance: An All Dogs Christmas Carol (1998)

Annabelle's evil cousin.
  • Bad Boss: During "I Always Get Emotional At Christmas Time", she puts her minions through quite a bit of abuse.
  • Bowdlerize: Does she ever say "Hell"? No. She's Anabelle's evil counterpart, and Anabelle is from Heaven. But then again, can you imagine her appearing in the hell sequence of the original?
    • Flanderization: That could mean she was the red demon at the end of the original.
  • Big Bad: Of the Christmas Special and serves as close to a Big Bad as the series got after she showed up.
  • "Blackmail" Is Such an Ugly Word: When Anabelle calls her 'doggone bad', she replies she's not bad, she's 'morally challenged'.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: She's working for the same side as Red, this is a given.
  • The Corrupter: Most of her appearances revolve around trying to lure Charlie to her side.
  • Equal-Opportunity Evil:
    Belladonna: Think of my organization as an equal opportunity employer. No matter who you are or what you want to be; when you join with me, it's always an easy ride.
  • Eviler Than Thou: Much like Red, when she shows up the heroes have no delusions she's way worse than Carface is and consider him a much bigger threat than him. Shows in the Christmas Carol: Carface didn't realize until it was nearly too late than Belladonna's plan wasn't just to ruin Christmas, but ruin the lives of every dog in the city, which would've resulted in at least one death (and of a child at that). Carface is actually horrified by this.
  • Evil Laugh: Has a pretty nice one.
  • Evil Twin: Well, cousin, technically, but she and Annabelle look near-identical despite being polar opposites.
  • Fallen Angel: While not outright stated, she replies to Annabelle telling Charlie to think of heaven while trying to pull him back from Belladonna's tempting that she's 'been there done that', implying she was an angel before becoming a demon.
  • For the Evulz: Anything she does that isn't to lure Charlie to her side or get one over on her cousin (and possibly even that too) is this.
    • When Annabelle first describes how Belladonna's goal is to ruin her Heavenly organization, the latter replies that "a girl needs a hobby," which implies that she really is just doing it for fun.
  • Good Wings, Evil Wings: While Anabelle is sometimes depicted with angelic wings, Belladonna has demonic wings. She also seems to get much more use out of hers.
  • Hell-Bent for Leather: She wears a leather jacket wherever she goes.
  • Hellhound: While her cousin is an angel, she's a demon.
  • Meaningful Name: Named for the belladonna flower, aka "deadly nightshade." Like the character, it has a pretty-sounding name and an appealing bluish-purple color, but is dealy toxic.
  • Kill It with Ice: Her weakness is to cold, but due to how strong she is it took getting an extremely large amount dropped on her to defeat her. Still counts though, and her Mooks turn to ash on contact with light snow.
  • Made of Temptation: Her first try at getting Charlie on her side, by offering him all the meat he can eat (as well as an easier path, but meat was the main thing).
  • Magic Mirror: Belladonna can use reflective surfaces in a similar method to Annabelle.
  • Mooks: Fire Imps in the Christmas Special, though Carface and Killer normally fill this role for her (though Carface somewhat got promoted to The Dragon status in the third film).
  • One-Winged Angel: Transforms into a giant Naga-like creature to try and kill Carface after his Heel–Face Turn. However, she took her eyes off her cousin and ended up defeated pretty quickly because of it.
  • Our Demons Are Different: Usually described as a "witch" instead, but the executives aren't fooling anyone, what with her infernal attributes, corrupting influence, implication of being a Fallen Angel...
  • Playing with Fire: Because she's a demon. She can use sufficiently large enough flames to go between Hell and Earth.
  • Reality Warper: A low level one.
  • Sdrawkcab Name: Subverted. Her name reverses the syllables of Annabelle's name, not the letters.
  • Uncanny Family Resemblance: She's Anabelle's cousin but outside of the leather vest, wings and color, they look more like twins.
  • Villain Song: "Take the Easy Way Out" and "I Always Get Emotional At Christmas Time".
  • Villainous Breakdown: Flying into a homicidal rage is her normal manner of dealing with her plan falling through.
  • We Can Rule Together: Since her first appearance, she's wanted Charlie to work for her team, and has gone to great lengths to do so.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Her plan in the Christmas Carol would've directly resulted in the death of a crippled puppy, and no matter what she intended to get him thrown out of his house and onto the streets.

Itchy's girlfriend.

  • Deadpan Snarker: She can easily go toe-to-toe with Charlie, Itchy and Sasha in the sarcasm department.


    Lance The Wonder Pup 

  • Adorkable: Let's just say that his attempts to fit in as a street mutt are endearing to say the least.
  • Identical Stranger: To Charlie Barkin
  • Lonely Rich Kid: Or dog in his case. He's a showdog yet is clearly upset that his master's child can't play with him.
  • Nice Guy: One of the nicest characters in the animated series despite only appearing in the episode "Trading Collars"
