    open/close all folders 

Humans

    Mac 
Voiced by: Sean Marquette

A creative, smart, and very warm-hearted 8-year old. Bloo is his imaginary friend.
  • Absentee Actor: It is possible that his voice actor (Sean Marquette) was busy with something else during the making of the episode "Pranks for Nothing".
  • Adorably Precocious Child
  • Author Avatar: Creator Craig McCracken based Mac on himself as a child.
  • Adorkable
  • All-Loving Hero
  • Ax-Crazy: Mac's personality goes from a very Nice Guy to completely lunatic if he gets even the smallest amount of sugar.
  • Badass Adorable: He doesn't "fight" often, but when he does...
  • Big Eater: Only when it comes to sugar.
  • Birthday Hater: With a twist; Bloo giving him surprise birthdays on almost any day except the actual day of his birthday (with one exception), he's grown something of a hatred towards them. It's mainly because he's put in embarrassing situations.
  • Break the Cutie: If Bloo is separated from him. Even if Bloo causes his most woobie-ish moments, he becomes an even bigger woobie.
  • Cheerful Child
  • Chivalrous Pervert: The pervert part is implied, the chivalrous part is clear-as-day.
  • The Conscience
  • The Cutie
  • G-Rated Drug: NEVER give Mac sugar. Seriously.
  • Heroes Want Redheads: His crush on Frankie.
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: The Feminine Boy to Frankie's Masculine Girl.
  • Nice Guy
  • Not so Above It All: Loads of times. Many episodes, particularly as the show went on, are built around him doing something more childish with Bloo and not being the voice of reason - or ironically applying his reason and wisdom to something immature.
  • Only Sane Man: This trope, however, is wonderfully averted if he eats too much sugar.
  • Out-of-Character Moment/Took a Level in Jerkass: When he gives Goo a mean "The Reason You Suck" Speech, which makes Goo cry. Thankfully, he makes it up with a heart-to-heart talk and apologizing.
    Mac: I don't like you! Not a person in this house likes you either! You're odd, talk in a weird way and really fast for that matter! Mr. Herriman is a rabbit, NOT a badger! Bloo's name isn't Chester, it's Bloo, bannanas don't contain protein you numbskull, nuts do! But you don't need anymore nuts since you're nuts! You're the place where they keep all the nuts! It's contagious! You spread the nuts to everyone in this house! Everybody thinks you're a nuisance and they all want you to just GO HOME!
    • My God, What Have I Done?: while Mac said that because he was so steamed, he looked in the present Goo was about to give him. Turns out she gave him a new backpack to replace the one that was rendered unusable at the start of the episode. Needless to say, Mac realized he shouldn't have snapped and apologized to Goo.
  • Out of Focus: Not in the show, but in the merchandise. Whenever merchandise of the series is released, expect Cheese to take his place (except for one shirt with both him and Cheese on it, and at least he did get a stuffed animal and figuriene of himself)
  • Ping Pong Naïveté: Rarely, but the show does still remind us that he's eight sometimes. For example, in "Camp Keep A Good Mac Down" he's his usual Wise Beyond Their Years self, basically being the only thing keeping the crumbling camping trip afloat - except for the scene where Eduardo tells him a scary story and he starts freaking out like a kid his age normally would.
  • Precocious Crush: His crush on Frankie.
  • Puppy-Dog Eyes
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Bloo's red.
  • Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: Savvy Guy to Goo's Energetic Girl.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: The Sensitive Guy to Bloo's Manly Man.
  • Shrinking Violet
  • Squishy Wizard
  • Sweet Tooth
  • Vocal Evolution: His voice gets lower and somewhat scratchy after a while, due to his voice actor hitting puberty. This is very noticeable, especially when on the DVD Commentary for "Store Wars", you can hear him (the DVD came out during season five) talk against his higher voice in season one.
  • Wise Beyond Their Years: Most of the time, though he can act his age and be as childish as the rest of them Depending on the Writer.
  • Your Size May Vary: In some episodes, he's as tall as Bloo, but in others, he's taller. Justified, as he's 8 years old and was probably going through a few growth spurts.

    Francis "Frankie" Foster 
Voiced by: Grey DeLisle

Granddaughter of Madame Foster; caretaker at the mansion.

    Madame Foster 
Voiced by: Candi Milo

Voiced by: Tara Strong

Mac's evil 13-year old brother, and one of the antagonists of the series.

    Mac's Mom 
Voiced by: Grey Delisle

Mac's mother, who made him get rid of Bloo in the first place, but is unaware of his daily visits to Foster's. She works all day, and Mac hardly ever gets to see her.

Imaginary Friends

    Blooregard "Bloo" Q. Kazoo 
Voiced by: Keith Ferguson

Mac's reckless, hyperactive imaginary friend. Mac's complete opposite; however without him, Mac would do everything Bloo says and does.

    Wilt 
Voiced by: Phil LaMarr

A one-armed imaginary friend desperate to be a nice person and gain acceptance.

    Coco 
Voiced by: Candi Milo

A palm-tree/aeroplane imaginary friend with a language based on her own name.

    Eduardo 
Voiced by: Tom Kenny

An imaginary friend resembling a huge, hairy monster with a heart of gold.
  • Adorkable: Super friendly, and incredibly kooky.
  • Berserk Button: Just don't mess with his friends... (or former owner)
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Cowardly and soft though he may be, when pushed, Eduardo makes it very clear that he's one of the strongest characters in the show.
  • Big Ol' Unibrow
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: He definitely has his "LOCOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!" moments.
  • Cuddle Bug: Gives (nearly bone-crushing) hugs to people he's worried about.
  • Gentle Giant: His owner, now a grown police officer, made him to not only have a playmate as well as protector from bullies, but to also have someone who was gentle enough to play with her baby brother.
    • Cowardly Lion: However, having a protector backfired. Instead of teasing her, the bullies started to attack Ed, who was too cowardly to defend himself, despite his looks.note  Ed's a natural cry-baby, and refuses to go into a suituation unless someone's beside him or he's in a group, and even then he's not going to be happy.
  • Gratuitous Spanish
  • Papa Wolf. Don't hurt his friends or he'll attack.
  • Super Strength: He is capable of carrying a bus around as if it wasn't even there. Though considering his size...
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Potatoes, to the point that he curiously carries around a potato sack wherever he goes.
