Characters: Chowder
Chowder
"Pepper spray? That sounds delicious! (gets sprayed in the face) AHHH!! I WAS WRONG!! I WAS HORRIBLY WRONG!!!"
Voiced by Nicky Jones

Chowder is the excitable, young apprentice of legendary chef Mung Daal. Chowder loves food and dreams of becoming a great chef one day.

Mung Daal
"You see, there is an ugly lady inside us all, and sometimes, that ugly lady makes us do things we're not proud of."
Voiced by Dwight Schultz

He can be a bit scatterbrained, but when it comes to cooking, Mung Daal knows more than almost anyone. He pours his heart into every dish. Mung thinks he's a ladies man and frequently offers Chowder advice about finding love.

Shnitzel
"Radda, radda!"

"Think of something dry!"
"Like Shnitzel's sense of humour?"
"No that's too dry."

Voiced by: John DiMaggio, Kevin Michael Richardson (in "The Froggy Apple Crumple Thumpkin")

Shnitzel is a big, heavy rock monster who works in Mung Daal's kitchen. He doesn't have much of a sense of humor, and Chowder is always getting on his nerves.


Truffles
"What's going on in here!!?"
Voiced by: Tara Strong

Mung Daal's wife, Truffles likes to be the boss and has a very competitive streak. While Mung Daal handles the cooking, Truffles takes care of everything else.

Kimchi
Voiced by C. H. Greenblatt

Chowder's pet, who lives in a cage next to his bed. Kimchi is a brown-colored cloud (an anthropomorphized flatus). He likes things that smell bad, and he "talks" by making flatulent sounds.

Ms. Endive
Voiced by Mindy Sterling

A female chef who teaches cooking to Panini with strict discipline. She regularly berates Mung Daal, whom she considers a rival. In the episode "Chowder's Girlfriend", it is revealed she despises boys and boyfriends because her fiance did not show up on their wedding day. The creator describes her as Martha Stewart with Oompa-Loompa colors.

Panini
"Oh, hiiii, Chowder..."
Voiced by: Liliana Mumy, Grey DeLisle (adult)

Panini is the apprentice to Ms. Endive. She's convinced that Chowder is her boyfriend and takes every opportunity to let him know this.

Gazpacho
"Come. Sit. Buy my beans!"
Voiced by Dana Snyder

A storekeeper who sells strange produce and ingredients. He does his best to offer advice to Chowder when needed. He lives with his overbearing mother, who never appears. Gazpacho shows no interest in moving out and improving his own life.
  • Ax-Crazy: Shown multiple times. Think about it; we never actually see Gazpacho's mother despite her being mentioned all the time, which "Spookiest House In Marzipan" points out, implying that she is made up and Gazpacho might be schizophrenic. It was Played for Laughs.
    • In that episode he gives an offhand comment that he is going to kill Chowder, Gorgonzola and Panini after coffee. That's right, he's going to stab three children, featuring his best friend.
    • In "Dinner Theatre", he enjoys his villainous role a little too much, pretending to be this character outside practicing and at the end this line occurs with literal axe craziness:
    Gazpacho: At least...(takes an axe) NOT YET!
    • "Banned From The Stand" has Gazpacho going paranoid that Mung and Chowder are going to buy berries off of him by help from other people, which is at the beginning Properly Paranoid, but then he goes overboard and thinks everyone is trying to help Mung and Chowder, speaking to himself in a crazy manner and banning everyone, including from every other stand and the bathroom, and his overly paranoid behaviour ends with him banning himself from his own stand. This all happened because Mung and Gazpacho had a disagreement on the berry's colour.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: He doesn't provide to make a situation less complicated.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: With Chowder.
  • Large Ham
  • Man Child: Taken to the extreme in the series finale, where he couldn't change anything to make his life better, so he ran away and made up a whole bunch of lies. Adult Chowder eventually finds him and brings him out of hiding.
  • Meaningful Name: His name is a kind of tomato sauce.
  • Momma's Boy: This was his codename during the episode, "The Heist".
  • My Beloved Smother
  • Split Personality: Remember when Gazpacho was revealed to be his own Mother!?
    • But that wasn't real. OR WAS IT!?
  • Was It All a Lie?: See Man Child above.

Gorgonzola
"Don't strain yourself, Pudge."
Voiced by: Will Shadley, Dave Wittenberg (adult)

A young apprentice candle holder with a surly attitude. He resents Chowder due to him having a better job.

Ceviché
"After I escort you home could I weed your garden and hang some dry wall?"

Ceviche is a dancer and the apprentice of Pate. He is fairly easy going and has a crush on Panini. Because of this he follows her around and does what she says.
