Characters: Drawn Together
The dramatis personae
for the animated series Drawn Together
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
- Ambiguously Jewish
- Anti-Hero: A definite case of being a hero in name only.
- Catch Phrase: Harnell considers "Save yourselves!" to be his.
- Clark Kenting: With Tim Tommerson, who he claims is a separate person, though Xandir sees through this immediately. Then quickly contradicted in the second season finale, where Tim Tommerson really was a different person.
- A Date with Rosie Palms: There are plenty of jokes involving him masturbating.
- The Ditz
- Embarrassing First Name: Leslie.
- Even the Guys Want Him: Xandir, Wooldoor, and even Spanky have been suggested to be into him.
- Extreme Omnisexual: He'd have sex with Anything That Moves. And anything that doesn't. Especially anything that doesn't.
- Forgot About His Powers: Lampshaded when he states that because he smokes marijuana, he didn't think to use his powers to save the cast from the crashing helicopter.
- Handsome Lech
- Heroic Comedic Sociopath
- I Love the Dead: Oh... dear... God.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: To the same extent as the rest of the cast.
- Karma Houdini: He's destroyed an entire planet, caused the deaths of thousands on innocent people on Earth, and has also raped a few people. The only time he ever gets punished is when he gets caught with a photo of his naked teenaged self, unless you count the constant gruesome injuries and humiliating accidents he's subject to as part of the shows comedy.
- Made of Iron / Nigh-Invulnerability: Which makes him Too Kinky to Torture.
- Man Child: Frequently behaves like a child, seen most prominently in "Super Nanny".
- Miles Gloriosus: His Catch Phrase is "Save yourselves!" (though in the DVD documentary on how Drawn Together was created, Jess Harnell had no idea people would associate that line to Captain Hero).
- Ping Pong Na´vetÚ
- Power Perversion Potential: The only times that Hero uses his powers with consistent skillfulness.
- Psychopathic Man Child: Will often throw massive tantrums, which, due to his superpowers, are even more destructive than usual.
- Remembered I Could Fly: Even when he does remember that he has super powers which could easily solve the problem at hand, he's still at a complete loss how to apply them properly.
- The Sociopath
- Too Dumb to Live: Often misuses or forgets to use his powers at crucial moments.
- Too Kinky to Torture
- Villain Protagonist
- What the Hell, Captain Hero: Constantly called out on his atrocities by the other characters.
- Your Makeup Is Running: Whenever he cries, his mascara runs.
-style mystery-solving musician who parodies Josie and the Pussycats
. 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
- Anything That Moves
- Bi the Way
- Genre Savvy: "[We're going to] Africa? I don't even know what's gonna happen, and I'm already offended!"
- Grandma, What Massive Hotness You Have: Considering she's actually a grandmother
- Good Bad Girl
- Little Bit Beastly: The show is inconsistent regarding the issue of whether her fox tail is real or not. She's seen without it on a few occasions, but she's also seen moving it at will, and a later episode suggests her mother is an actual fox. Her ears clearly are real.
- Ms. Fanservice
- Obfuscating Stupidity: She once made a comment about the Kyoto Protocol, followed by everyone in the room looking at her in shock. Foxxy then mumbles "blackity black black, stereotype, black" rather indignantly before turning to the viewer and asking "Ya happy?" Less obfuscating, more being forced to play the stereotype.
- Older Than They Look: Has a teenage grandson despite looking like she's in her 20's. Then again, this could be that she's had son or daughter extremely young or she might reproduce or age differently on the account of being part fox.
- Or not. The first season stated her to be 23. Whether or not they stuck to this is unknown.
- Only Sane Man: Wooldoor has lampshaded this by telling her she's the only one that's not "completely retarded".
- Positive Discrimination
- Really Gets Around
- Sassy Black Woman
- Skintone Sclerae: Being designed like a Hanna-Barbera character and all.
- The Smart Guy: There's not a lot of competition, though.
- Team Mom: Jew Producer once called her the group's "unofficial leader".
- Third-Person Person
- Took a Level in Dumbass: She became far more prone to fits of idiotic behavior in Season Three and in the movie.
- Twofer Token Minority
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
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
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
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
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.
- 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 head of the network which aired Drawn Together
in universe. Only appeared in The Movie
as the main antagonist.
The Boss's robotic henchwoman whose job it is to permanently erase the housemates.
