Characters / Beakman's World

Beakman (played by Paul Zaloom; voiced by Juan Alfonso Carralero [Mexican Spanish])

Lester the Rat (played by Mark Ritts; voiced by Salvador Delgado [Mexican Spanish])

The Assistants

  • Audience Surrogate / The Watson: Beakman's assistants help think through the answer, ask the obvious questions, and generally keep Beakman moving toward a response to the readers' questions.
  • Genki Girl: All three were highly energetic, particularly when rushing in from off-screen or during the intro to Beakmania.

Josie (played by Alanna Ubach; voiced by Laura Torres [Mexican Spanish])

  • Awesome Moment of Crowning: The last segment of Josie's last episode shows kids how they can do their own research (using the question "How do fireworks make those neat colors?" as an example). Beakman points her to resources, but Josie does most of the legwork and provides the final answer herself.
  • Precocious Crush: Josie is often awe-struck by Beakman's knowledge.

Liza (played by Eliza Schneider; voiced by Rocío Prado [Mexican Spanish])

Phoebe (played by Senta Moses; voiced by Rocío Prado [Mexican Spanish])

  • Quirky Curls
  • Rapid Fire Interrupting: At least a couple of times per episode, which only added to her "bratty know-it-all" status.
    Beakman (after two of these interruptions back to back): Okay, Phoebe: Since you know everything...
  • School Nurse: Nurse Phoebe. Most definitely the Western version.

Don and Herb (voiced by Alan Barzman and Bert Berdis [original], Alejandro Villeli and Octavio Rojas [Mexican Spanish])
