Characters / Beakman's World

Beakman (Paul Zaloom)

Lester the Rat (Mark Ritts)

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 (Alanna Ubach)

  • 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 (Eliza Schneider)

Phoebe (Senta Moses)

  • The Cast Showoff: Senta's martial arts training was put to good use in a segment about breaking boards.
  • 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...
  • Replacement Scrappy: She's hated by fans even more so than Liza, due to the fact that she's not Josie or Liza.
  • School Nurse: Nurse Phoebe. Most definitely the Western version.

Don and Herb (voiced by Alan Barzman and Bert Berdis)
