Fanboy and Chum Chum
Voiced by: David Hornsby (Fanboy), Nika Futterman (Chum Chum)The eponymous, hyperactive duo, who live by the rule of no work and all play. They spend most of their free time hanging out in the local convenience store or having all kinds of wacky adventures in their house, which lacks any kind of adult resident. They are both comic book nerds (although much less so than Oz) and get ecstatic about the tiniest things.
