Main Characters

    Bonkers D. Bobcat 
Voiced by: Jim Cummings

Bonkers D. Bobcat is an overly energetic and hyperactive cartoon anthropomorphic bobcat that works in the Toon Division of the Hollywood PD.[6] Once a big name cartoon star for Wackytoons Studios, he was fired due to his show being bumped out of first place in the ratings. He was introduced to law enforcement when he unknowingly saved cartoon celebrity Donald Duck from a park mugger (mostly due to the help of officer Lucky Piquel) and was given full credit for the mugger's capture.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: Mostly in the "Lucky" era, he could actually be pretty good at solving crimes when the situation called for it.
  • Cartoony Tail: In the "Lucky" episodes, it's more like that of a house cat, not an actual bobcat.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: He's crazy and inside and outside of Toon Town.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Disney introduced the character by playing his shorts on Raw Toonage.
  • Flanderization: In the Miranda episodes, he became far more of an incompetent Butt Monkey than in the previous Lucky episodes. Although the Miranda episodes takes place after the Lucky ones, behind the show the Miranda episodes were made before the Lucky ones with explains it.
  • Furry Ear Dissonance: Shaped like golf clubs.
  • Half-Dressed Cartoon Animal: His usual appearance.
  • I Choose to Stay: At the end of "Gone Bonkers" two-parter, Bonkers was given a chance to go back to show business, instead he decided to remain with the Hollywood Police.
  • Informed Species:
    • Here's what a normal bobcat looks like. Not much resemblance, is there?
    • Also in the Lucky episodes, when Bonkers made a cat noise, he sounded too much like a real house cat. Bobcats in real life don't make real cat noises. Some of them even seem to make really strange sounds/noises, which explains Bonkers' voice.
  • Innocent Blue Eyes: His eyes occasionally shown to be blue in the Lucky episodes and his eyes are always blue in the Miranda (and 'Raw Toonage') episodes.
  • Interspecies Romance: With Fawn Deer, although they're both toons. However, he did fall for a human girl in "Love Stuck".

    Lucky Piquel
Voiced by: Jim Cummings

Detective Lucky Shirley Piquel is Bonkers' partner from the "Lucky Episodes". He is a slovenly, morbidly obese, street-wise mustachioed man. He is balding, but wears a toupée. Lucky is a serious, hard-boiled detective whose by-the-book nature is at odds with Bonkers' decidedly more maniacal approach to crime solving.
  • Amusing Injuries: Oddly enough, Lucky tends to suffer these. Being human and not a "toon", he's sometimes shown as a Bandage Mummy, with crutches, etc. after suffering slapstick violence.
  • Throw the Dog a Bone: Doesn't Lucky having a beautiful caring wife and a cute sweet daughter, who both love him very much, count?
  • Ugly Guy, Hot Wife: Lucky Piquel is overweight (said in the Christmas episode to be fatter than Santa) and balding (but wears a toupée). His wife however is pretty attractive.
  • With My Hands Tied: When Lucky is captured and tied, he is able to write a message for help on a can and kick it out of an open window. He was also able to move around a lot when his legs were tied together.

    Miranda Wright
Voiced by: Karla DeVito

Miranda Wright is a police officer that works at the same police station that Lucky works at. She is Bonkers' partner from the "Miranda Episodes".

  • Bruiser with a Soft Center: She can fight and is an incredibly sweet person.
  • Cute Bruiser: A tough, beautiful cop.
  • Fair Cop: A very good looking police officer.
  • Foil: To Lucky. Rather than being Bonkers' polar opposite (like Lucky), she limits the flamboyant nature of Bonkers and other Toons without being annoyed by it.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: She an Action Girl, but she shown to be more tolerant and far less abrasive than Lucky, with Bonkers and caring towards him.
  • Ms. Fanservice: A milder example than most, since she's rarely shown out of her police uniform.
  • Nice Girl: Miranda is a kind and moral person.
  • Punny Name: Miranda Wright.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: Miranda actually believes in Bonkers' abilities to be a good cop, unlike her sister Shirley who thinks he's a menace and should retire.

    Fall-Apart Rabbit

  • Amazonian Beauty: In one "Raw Toonage" short, she shown to be able to pick up a huge boxed TV set with no problem. Though since it was just a cartoon short they made, it's debatable.
  • Demoted to Extra: After "Raw Toonage", poor Fawn didn't get to appear alot in either the 'Lucky' or 'Miranda' episodes. She only appeared in three 'Miranda' episodes in voiceless cameos.. she only had speaking lines in TWO Lucky episodes. The rest were voiceless cameos as well.
