     Main characters 

Adam Young

  • Adorkable
  • Butt Monkey: Adam himself more often than not, being antagonized by his boss and variously ignored, insulted, pranked and thwarted by Derby.
    • Iron Buttmonkey: So far he's been struck by lightning, fought an Alligator, taken multiple weights being dropped upon him, fallen out of a building, been thrown around and about a dozen other things, and he's yet to break a single bone.

  • Covert Pervert
  • First Kiss: With Echo in ''Mr. First Impression.
  • Grade Skipper: By the time Adam Young was old enough to be a High School student, he was a teacher.
  • Mad Scientist: Comes off as this at times, he uses Derby as a guinea pig.
  • Meaningful Name: He's the youngest teacher at the school at only 14 years old.
  • Multi Disciplinary Scientist: Adam is master of pretty much what ever field of science is useful to there present situation, be it chemistry, Biology, Genetics, Neurobiology, Psychology etc. However he does seem best at and prefers physics.
  • Official Couple: With Echo.
  • Only Sane Man: Compared to the rest of the cast, he and Echo are the only ones who aren't completely doolally.
  • Smart Guy: How do you think he ended up being a teacher ?
  • Student Teacher Romance: Would like one with Echo, eventually gets it.

Echo Zizzleswift

  • Big Damn Kiss

  • Granola Girl
  • Hidden Depths: She's a Star Wars fan.
    • Not just star wars, she practically obsessed with all forms of fantasy and science fiction, to the point where she can speak over a dozen fictional languages and has seen nearly every science fiction film there is. She also likes Fantasy Role play.
  • Meaningful Name: Adam tends to agree (or pretend to agree) with everything she says, that is to say he echoes her opinions.
  • Nice Girl
  • Official Couple: With Adam.
  • Only Sane Man: Along with Adam, a recurring Gag is her staring in shock, disbelief and just plain confusion when ever the others around pull of there ridiculous (or even impossible) antics and stupidity.

Derby

Slab

Principal Tater

  • Arch-Enemy: To Adam to some extent.
    • Sitcom Arch Enemy: He often shows a strong level of animosity towards Adam and often tries to get him fired, or even killed when ever he can. This doesn't stop him running to Adam for help, exploiting and forcing Adam to help or the two teaming up when they share a goal.
  • Bald Of Jerkass
  • Butt Monkey: Arguably the best example on the show. Even in the opening he's the only person who seems unhappy to be in the show.
  • Dirty Coward
  • Jerkass
  • Man Child: "I never learned to cook. Mommy won't let me use the owie-maker."
  • Too Dumb to Live: One wonders how he got to be a principal. Given this is a Crapsack World, it is kind of believable.
