Characters: Drawn Together
The dramatis personae for the animated series Drawn Together.

Captain Hero

A super-powered, sex-obsessed lothario whose machismo hides a fragile ego. Initially a minor character, but eventually came to dominate the show. Parodies Superman as well as the macho jock stereotype. Voiced by Jess Harnell.

Foxxy Love

A 1970s-style mystery-solving musician who parodies Josie and the Pussycats and Scooby-Doo. She plays the token Sassy Black Woman/put-upon minority (also the Village Bicycle, though most of the cast competes for that title). Foxxy was the show's most heavily featured character until Captain Hero took over midway through Season Two. Voiced by Cree Summer.

Ling-Ling

An ill-tempered Pikachu knock-off. He speaks in faux-Japanese babble (his voice actress calls it "Japorean"...) and seldom interacts much with the other characters (who usually don't understand a word he says). He plays the fish-out-of-water foreigner/Team Pet. He is also incredibly violent (expect bucketloads of blood in any of his scenes) and parodies the tendency of Japanese animation to be far more mature than its Western counterparts despite both being aimed at a younger audience. Voiced by Abbey McBride

Princess Clara

A parody of both the generic Disney Princess (to the point of her design being very close to Ariel's) and the naive airhead, complete with the ability to spontaneously generate fuzzy woodland creatures when she sings. An obsessive religious fanatic, she also parodies the "upper class WASP" stereotype by being condescendingly biased against all ethnic and religious minorities. Voiced by Tara Strong.

  • Badass Princess: At times. Multiple episodes demonstrate her as being adept at handling firearms, and in one episode, she hacks the proprietor of a torture enterprise to death with a sword.
  • The Chew Toy: Gets beat up on a regular basis, has had her scalp ripped off her head twice, and was savaged by possessed trees.
  • Cool Crown: Has a gold tiara.
  • Daddy's Girl
  • Disney Creatures of the Farce
  • The Extremist Was Right: Played for Laughs in the gay marriage episode when her prediction about Nazis riding dinosaurs destroying the world due to gay marriage turned out to be true
  • Everything's Better with Princesses
  • Friend to All Living Things: Exploited by Spanky as a source of food.
  • The Fundamentalist
  • Graceful Ladies Like Purple: Wears a simple purple dress.
  • Innocent Bigot: At first, especially in the first episode when she tries to apologize to Foxxy.
  • Innocent Blue Eyes
  • It's All About Me: Falls into this at times, due to Word of God stating that she is fundamentally a fairly spoiled princess. Foxxy starts to soften up to her when she indicates that her father is the source of many of her beliefs, including her prejudices, causing Foxxy to see her as merely parroting what she's been told.
  • Jerkass Ball: Tended to be cast as the villain whenever the show needed one, often with little justification given.
  • Knight Templar
  • Laser-Guided Karma: After manipulating Captain Hero into causing car crashes for her own pleasure and going off with her friends whenever she's had enough, he kills her friends in a car accident.
  • Long Hair Is Feminine: Has very long hair and is quite obsessed with it.
  • Miss Conception: In the second episode, she thinks that being kissed (by another woman, no less) has made her pregnant.
  • Never Bareheaded: The only time in the entire series she is seen without her tiara is when Captain Hero punches her and it falls off.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: Her biggest kink is witnessing the horrific deaths of innocents via car accidents.
  • Noble Bigot: Once. She suggested to Xandir that if being gay was so horrible, maybe he should try not being gay. And then suggested they "wish the gay away" when Foxxy points out homosexuality is something you're born with. Most of the time Clara acts like this, or seems to think she's this, before switching to a generally open and ignorant attitude.
  • Ping Pong Na´vetÚ
  • Precision F-Strike: Curses far less than the other characters, making it much more noticeable when she does so.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: In the episodes where she has the villain role, they usually amp up her racism and christian fundamentalism even more than normal.
  • Slapstick Knows no Gender: Tends to be the most physically abused of the characters.
  • Technical Virgin: Never has straight-up coitus over the course of the series, but she gets off to watching car crashes in one episode, and is seen with a masturbatory aid in another, although, she does have sex with Toot during a role-playing exercise, but due to Toot being another female, whether or not that counts as a loss of virginity is up to individual beliefs.
    • Although, it has been implied a few times that Toot isn't entirely female. (For example, in "The Other Cousin" she had a visible erection)
  • Token Religious Teammate
  • Token Wholesome: She is the only character on the show who seems to possess a sense of modesty.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: As Toot gradually became more sympathetic, Clara soaked up the excess bitchiness.
    • In "N.R.A.Y RAY", she becomes a bitch towards Toot for no apparent reason, except to make us sympathize with Toot.
  • Virginity Makes You Stupid

Spanky Ham

An Internet-derived character who enjoys exercising his warped, disgusting sense of humor. Parodies both internet Flash animations and the "party animal" stereotype. Voiced by Adam Carolla.

  • Ambiguously Jewish (He's also been Muslim and Scientologist).
  • Big Ol' Unibrow: Spanky's voice actor Adam Carolla thinks it's a reference to his own.
  • Catch Phrase: "Nothing can possibly go wrong."
  • Characterization Marches On: He was a much bigger jerk in the early episodes.
  • Everyone Has Standards: While morally ambiguous, like most of the cast, Spanky has been shown to not enjoy racist jokes directed at Native Americans, as seen in "Terms of Endearment," when they try and free Foxxy from a "Cartoon Erasement Camp", and pass several cells occupied by various offensive cartoons. He gets a laugh out of all but the ones of Native Americans, stating:
    Spanky: See, that's not funny. Those people got a raw deal.
  • Gasshole: One episode has as a major plot point the issue of whether his farts are funny or not.
  • Greed: His primary vice.
  • Only Sane Man: Often is the one to give a speech with the reasonable solution to an issue, like saying that old cartoons with racist stereotypes may be offensive, but denying them as part of our culture is dangerous. This, unfortunately, gets him a Shut Up, Kirk! from Mickey Mouse, who proceeds with his plans.
  • The Sociopath: Lack of Empathy, deceives or puts people in horrible situations for his own convenience, is unpleasant, obnoxious, sadistic, greedy and manipulative. This is all toned down later on.
  • Tempting Fate: His catchphrase, uttered immediately before something goes wrong.

Toot Braunstein

A black-and-white cartoon gal from the 1920s who's an overweight, bitter, washed-up, borderline-psychotic, alcoholic parody of Betty Boop. She fills the role of the "bitch" character. Voiced by Tara Strong.

  • Abusive Parents: Neglect toward her Nicaraguan baby, resulting in it running way and getting pregnant itself.
    • She also has abusive parents, or probably just her mom was more abusive since in "Mexican't Buy Me Love" she tells her to "suck on it".
  • The Alcoholic: One of the heaviest drinkers in the cast.
  • Ambiguously Jewish
  • Attention Whore
  • Butt Monkey
  • Character Development: Becomes less spiteful and more proactive over time, possibly as a result of Xandir acknowledging her as a friend, if not a lover.
  • Facial Horror: Usually.
  • Fan Disservice: She is this, personified.
  • Fat Girl: She insist that's she's still beauty when all of the evidence points to the contrary. She comes from a time when women having curvy bodies and generally weighing a bit more was considered aesthetically pleasing. Of course, her weight varies depending on Rule of Funny and multiple close-ups of her are quite unsettling.
  • Extreme Omnivore: She's eaten a television and a cell phone, among many other things.
  • Gold Digger: Her reason for marrying Ling-Ling's father, despite initially being repulsed by his advances.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: Not above eating people. At one point, this proves to be a good thing when she ate an evil Strawberry Shortcake expy.
  • Insane Troll Logic: Her first response when something isn't working is to eat it. She ate the TV when she couldn't find the remote, and once proposed eating Ling-Ling.
  • Older than They Look: Heavily implied.
  • One-Winged Angel: When she swallows a whole lot of jello and grows massive during her fight with Foxxy in the season 1 finale. She soon falls down and loses the fight, though.
  • Pie-Eyed: She's drawn this way to reflect her origins.
  • Plucky Girl: Became one by the end of the series.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Well, not really, but her personality softened noticeably between the first and third seasons.
  • Transsexual: Or possibly Hermaphrodite, she's had a fair share of boners poking through her skirt throughout the series. Either that, or she has an enlarged uh...
  • White-Dwarf Starlet
  • Yandere: Toward Xandir through the first season and a half.
  • Zettai Ryouiki

Wooldoor Sockbat

A goofy yellow whatsit who parodies the "WTF" cartoon character stereotype, especially SpongeBob SquarePants, but also including Stimpy from Ren and Stimpy, any of the Warners from Animaniacs, any of Tex Avery's wacky characters when Avery worked for MGM, and basically whatever the plot demands. He plays the attention-seeking Team Pet. Voiced by James Arnold Taylor.

  • Ambiguously Jewish
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!
  • Captain Ersatz: Even more so than the other characters. Notably, the other housemates are parodies of their respective characters, but Wooldoor basically is Spongebob Squarepants in all but name, and acts exactly like he would if Spongebob became a more adult-oriented cartoon.
    • A newspaper in one episode even refers to him as a "poorly-conceived Spongebob parody".
  • Catch Phrase: Wooldoor likes to say "WEEEEEE!" a lot, so much so that he has it on his headstone. In "Drawn Together Babies", he claims that due to an injury he sustained, he has to say it very often or he'll drown in his own bile.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander
  • Does Not Like Shoes
  • Fun Personified
  • Genius Ditz: He is the one in the house with the most medical and scientific capability (he's been able to perform surgery a few times)
  • A God Am I: "You ask me if I have a god complex? I AM GOD."
  • Hero-Worshipper: literally.
  • Innocently Insensitive: His naivete causes him to blurt out incredibly offensive things on occasion.
  • Keet
  • Mad Doctor
  • Vague Age: While everyone else has their age displayed next to their name in the confessional, Wooldoor just has question marks.
  • Was Once a Man: According to "Drawn Together Babies"

Xandir P. Wifflebottom

An effeminate (later openly gay) elf swordsman and video game character who parodies Link from the The Legend of Zelda games (and Video Games in general). His role on the show is that of the Camp Gay. Voiced by Jack Plotnick.

The Jew Producer

The only non-housemate to have any sort of recurring importance to the show. Originally, "Jew Producer" was just his nickname amongst the cast until he established that "The Jew Producer" was, in fact, his name.

  • Author Avatar: He is the in-show representation of the show's creators, a rare villainous example of the trope.
  • Aww, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: The movie shows that deep down, he truly does care about the housemates.
  • Bad Boss: Never misses an opportunity to abuse his power.
  • Big Bad: The closest this series has to one.
  • Characterization Marches On: In his first non-intercom appearance, he is a heartless creep who is perfectly willing to kill the cast if they disobey him. In the movie, he's kept the housemates supported for his own amusement long after the show has been canceled only to eventually save them from being erased.
  • Driven to Suicide: In the second season clip show he becomes upset after Xandir denies sleeping with him. He kills two staffers and then himself soon after. He got better though.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: He's Killed Off for Real in the movie saving the cast.
  • Jerkass: For many many reasons, though forcing the cast to spend three hours praising his genitals is probably the best example.

The Boss

The head of the network which aired Drawn Together in universe. Only appeared in The Movie as the main antagonist.

I.S.R.A.E.L.

The Boss's robotic henchwoman whose job it is to permanently erase the housemates.
