Voiced by: Nika Futterman

A human boy who was transferred from Chester Arthur Middle School to Charles Darwin Middle School by an accidental misspelling of his last name from "Lyon" to "Lion".
  • Adam and/or Eve: It can be perceived that Adam, being the first human male in an all-animal environment is a biblical reference.
  • Adorkable: Adam is shy and usually awkward in social situations, but he sure is cute.
  • Aesop Amnesia: Episode upon episode, he's told to stop complaining about being the only human at his school, but he instantly forgets it by as soon as the airing of the next episode.
  • The All-American Boy: It's been implied that he acted like this, back when he still went to a human school. Some overflow was seen at the beginning of "The Morning Zoo", he was seen, greeting the day with a flamboyant "Gosh, golly gee! What a happy sunshiney day!"
  • Animal Motifs: Adam's learned how to embrace his so-called "lionhood". Being mistaken for and treated like a lion all his life has led him to take on the roles and abilities of said animal pretty well.
  • Animorphism: Several episodes involve him either turning into an animal or embodying the jingoism of said animal.
  • The Anticipator: In the Season 4 episode, "Mountain Dude", he started expecting things to happen when the first sign showed itself.
    • Oddly, Jake predicted plot lines coming as early as two seasons earlier, in "I Got a New Aptitude".
  • "Awesome McCool" Name: "Lion" spelled with a "y" is a pretty kick-ass sounding name, when you think about it.
  • Bad Job, Worse Uniform: Had to dress as a sign-twirling gorilla in "Flesh Fur Fantasy".
  • Being Human Sucks: For this guy? I'd bet.
  • Berserk Button: After dealing with repeated torture from Jake, Pixiefrog, or CDMS in general, Adam will often lose his mind in the climax or ending of a few episodes.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: For the most part, a polite and sweet kid, but if you deny his due respect and treat him like crap a lot (and I do mean a lot), he will go from sweet to sour and kick your butt.
  • Birthday Hater: Has always tried distancing himself from celebrating birthdays ever since that time he wet his pants at his birthday party in first grade.
  • Body Horror: At the end of "Hyena and the Mighty", Adam gets beat up by random machines after threatening Rufus to stop crying and Adam's beating makes Rufus laugh and results in Adam getting injured and bruised. To be fair, he deserved it for the massive jerk he was being to Rufus.
  • Butt-Monkey: He constantly gets in trouble for Jake's misbehavior, gets hurt a lot, has bad luck, gets picked on by Bull and Chad, etc. You know the drill.
  • The Bore: He became this in "Wild Thing", where his friends, teachers, and even bullies would be driven mad by his long, drawn out tangents about his personal life, internal struggles, backstories, etc.
  • Casual Danger Dialogue: Made a few of these in "Mountain Dude".
    Adam: [happily] I told you something bad was gunna happen!
  • Character Development: He's not only grown more accustomed to his animal school, but he's embraced it. In late season 3 and season 4, there are also episodes, where he stops playing the straight man and acts just as goofy as Jake and Slips, if the episode were to focus on the problems happening with another character, such as Windsor or Ingrid.
  • Characterization Marches On: However, that didn't stop him from having Aesop amnesia in a few later episodes, with him once again, babbling on and on about how he's the only human and he misses his old school, blah blah blah.
  • The Chew Toy: Most of his haplessness is played for comedy.
  • The Cheerleader: Involuntarily became one in "Cheer Pressure".
  • Chick Magnet: He became this in "I Got Rhythm". Also in "The Frog Principal", but only because of a love potion.
  • Chilly Reception: Adam being new to the school, means he lacks knowledge on important information all other animals need to know. He suffers the consequences of not taking whatever precautions are needed to be taken in order to handle whatever conflict may be headed his way, and the other animals never tell him about it beforehand, because it's such a basic and natural part of their lives, they don't give it enough attention to consider, whether Adam knows it already or not.
  • Coconut Meets Cranium: Got pelted by coconuts at the end of "She's Koala That" for making too much lame puns.
    Adam: Can someone koala doctor?
  • Collector of the Strange: Collects weird Captain Clowny merchandise and takes it to extremes. He even has a Captain Clowny grandfather clock in his room, which he uses as his regular alarm.
  • Comedic Underwear Exposure: It's become a running gag for Adam to be seen in his Captain Clowny underpants.
  • The Conscience: To Jake, but he's never listened to.
  • Continuity Drift: In "Where in the World Are Adam's Parents?", Adam said his parents were deathly allergic to all non-human animals. This would make it virtually impossible for Adam to have a house pet without killing them. However, in "Synch or Swim", he said he used to have some pet sea simians.
  • Cool Loser: One of his main character traits.
  • Cowardly Lion: Adam is a Cowardly Lyon.
  • Cross Dresser: Dressed as female pop star, Truffles Duvall, to win Jake's friendship back in "The 'A' Word".
  • Deadpan Snarker: Pays to be this if you're the Only Sane Man of this school.
    Orlando: (squawk) Pretty bird!
    Jake: Pretty monkey!
    Adam: (deadpan) Pretty stupid.
  • Did Not Get the Girl: Endings to plots with Kerry consistently zig-zag from this, to the opposite.
  • Does Not Like Spam: Utterly disgusted by the cafeteria food, but this is only because they're not intended for human consumption. Menu items would consist of dirt, live bugs, twigs, mud, and other disgusting things that only an animal could tolerate.
  • Dog Walks You: Inverted in "Human Behavior", when Adam transcended into a state of being an animal and Jake had to walk him on a leash, only to get pulled down the sidewalk.
  • Doom Magnet: Almost anytime something bad happens at CDMS, Adam is at least somewhat troubled by it.
    Jake: When was the last time something bad ever happened around here?
    Adam: Uh, ... every day?
    Jake: Let me rephrase that. When was the last time something bad ever happened to someone, who's not you.
    Adam: Good point.
    • A few episodes give Adam a break, like "The Sheds", "Oh, Henry!", "Four Eyed Jake", "Ingrid Through the Out Door", and "The Morning Zoo", which instead torture other main or recurring cast members for a change.
  • Eating Pet Food: Pretty much every time he forgets to bring his lunch. Best expressed in "Chew on This".
  • Establishing Character Moment: In the first episode, Adam was sitting on the bus, arms folded, and scowling, while Jake was sitting on his head and picking fleas out of his hair. His first quote set his character for the show.
    Adam: Whoever said humans and monkeys share the same genes is an idiot.
  • The Everyman: Adam is the Mr. Normal of the cast, making himself the most relatable to the show's target audience.
  • Everyone Has Standards: He thought it was fairly reprehensible of Lola Llama to try and steal Ingrid's life away.
  • Evil Hand: Stupid Hand.
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: In "Political Animals", he underwent the same hairstyle change as Bill Mckay from The Candidate for the same reasons.
  • Face Palm: Tends to do the forehead slap a lot.
  • Failure Hero: Most of the time.
  • Fanboy: Of Captain Clowny.
  • Fatal Flaw: Adam's main character flaws would be his physical and emotional weakness, his constant whining and complaining, and in later seasons, his unbridled narcissism.
  • Fiery Redhead: ... You could call it that ...
  • First Kiss: He and Kerry kissed as babies on Thanksgiving one year.
  • Fish out of Water: Even the beached aquatic students possess more street-wisdom than him.
  • Flanderization: In the latter half of Season 4, episodes featured Adam Lyon being a walking ball of self-absorbed, egotism, who couldn't shut his face about his personal life for two seconds and was completely blind to the world around him.
  • Flop Sweat: Had this in "Kerry to Dance?", when working up the nerve to admit he liked Kerry ... to Jake!
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: Sanguine.
  • Free-Range Children: His parents are almost entirely absent, both leaving for work at 4:00AM and not coming back until well after dark on a daily basis. This, and they are strictly obligated to ever go to his school, due to their animal allergies. Adam's learned to fend for himself, earning him the independence to do just about whatever the hell he wants without parental punishment.
  • Friend to All Living Things: Friends with a very odd array of exotic animals.
  • Full-Frontal Assault: His tendency to both getting attacked and stripped down to his undies, joined forces in "Glazed and Confused".
  • Goofy Print Underwear: Adam has underwear with a picture of Captain Clowny's face in the butt, with a real red nose, that actually honks, when squished.
  • The Hero: The closest this show has to one.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Jake.
  • Humans Are Insects: Despite being the smartest species, and a bit of a novelty at his school, Adam is still looked down on for being human. In "Lyon of Scrimmage", Coach Gills referred to him as the most Un-Athletic species CDMS has.
  • Human Hammer-Throw: Adam and Jake's unique Ultimate Fetch move is the reversal of this.
  • Humiliation Conga: Happens to him at the end of "Hyena and the Mighty."
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: Wishes he went to a normal school without a bunch of animal students.
    Adam: I wish my life was boring. I wish my life was boring. I wish my life was boring...
  • Iconic Outfit: Mustard yellow T-shirt and green cargo shorts.
    • Jake listed off his other recurring outfits in "A Whole Zoo World". These would be his Captain Clowny underwear, cheerleader uniform, and naked with a fig leaf.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: In "Where in the World Are Adam's Parents?", people were assuming that Adam has eaten his parents, since they've never been seen. This turned out to be a lie, but at the end of the episode, as always, they needed to end it off with a joke. In this case, it would be Adam burping up a human bone, humorously suggesting that he was a cannibal, who may not have eaten his parents, but at least he's eaten someone else.
  • The Insomniac: Numerous times, actually. In "Up All Night", Adam's friends kept him up all night at a sleepover, eventually making him go completely nutty. In "Human Behavior", Adam stayed awake for three weeks straight, to practice for an animal behavior test, which eventually got to his head, and turned him into a feral freak. This wouldn't be the first all nighter he pulled, as once again, a properly titled short, "All-Nighter" included Jake on the fun, where they both stayed up all night, to for the following day's hibernation test.
  • Instant Chucks: Pulled nunchucks out of thin air in "Nice Mustache".
  • Interspecies Romance: Has wound up in relationships with Latanya, Margaret, and Joanie.
    • Not to mention the countless animals who have a crush on him, Ingrid Giraffe, Latanya Hippo, Margaret Rhino, Joanie Ox, Nurse Gazelle, Lola Llama, Kimberly Capuchin, The Ghost of Thanksgiving Past, every female teacher in "Poop Scoop", and every female student (including Nurse Gazelle again) in "The Frog Principal".
  • It Gets Easier: Season 4 episodes like "Human Behavior" and "A Very Special Boy" show him getting used to and even embracing the madness of Charles Darwin Middle School.
  • Jerkass Ball: "The Hyena And The Mighty".
  • Joins to Fit In: Adam's undying need for a group of human friends is born of him being the human of his pack. Of course, the status quo is god in this show, so he's never gunna find a friend group that'll stick.
  • Jumping Off the Slippery Slope: "The Hyena And The Mighty"; his abuse of Rufus Hyena. Particularly the scene where he threatens the hyena with physical violence to stop crying.
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch: See Body Horror above.
  • Kiddie Kid: Gets very excited over Captain Clowny, a in-universe cartoon franchise generally seen as a baby show.
  • "King Kong" Climb: In "Inoculation Day", Adam turned into a monkey and climbed up Ingrid, while holding Principal Pixiefrog, who was wearing a mop as a wig at the time.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: In "The Hyena and The Mighty", Adam was sick of Rufus Hyena's insensate laughing and made him cry by insulting him, despite not knowing he was in the room at the time. He was shamed by everyone in the school and later got brutally beaten sore by a Rube Goldberg machine, causing him to cry. People saw this as his getting what he deserved for being such a Class-A douchebag, but nobody acknowledged how Adam bent over backwards, trying to make up for what he did all episode long. Not did they realize how Adam's hatred for Rufus stemmed from how his laughter often came from harmful pranks that came at his expense.
  • Long-Distance Relationship: Technically, his relationship with Kerry, due to the school transfer, however, she does live right next door to him.
  • Loser Protagonist: Adam is a social outcast, who pretty much fails at everything he tries.
  • Love Goddess: Accidentally became a male variant of this, when he paired up Lupe and Orlando together.
  • Love Interest: Kerry Anderson.
  • Love Makes You Dumb: Adam can do a lot of stupid things, just to impress Kerry.
  • Limited Wardrobe: Adam's entire closet is full of mustard yellow shirts and green cargo shorts.
  • Meaningful Name: His first name is a biblical reference. Adam from the bible was the first human man, placed on a planet with it's only other inhabitants being animals. Meanwhile, Adam from the show is the first human boy, sent to a school, with it's only other students being animals.
  • Monster Misogyny: Lampshaded in "Inoculation Day", when he turned into an ape, and attakced Principal Pixiefrog, because he had a mop on his head, which made him look like a lady.
  • Mouthy Kid: Makes condescending comments about Principal Pixiefrog's dumb ideas.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Had his fair share of moments, where he went dangerously close to the moral event horizon, but he's always managed to just barely redeem himself in the nick of time.
  • Mysterious Middle Initial: It's never leaned what "M" stands for.
  • Naïve Newcomer: To CDMS, obviously.
  • The Napoleon: He's in middle school and is short and stout.
  • Narcissist: Mostly yammers about his own personal problems and sees himself as the center of attention. Adam showed hints of this in seasons 1-3, but was still selfless enough to feel sympathy for other characters and go out of his way to help them. However, in Season 4 his egotism was wildly maximized and episodes centered around him being completely blind to everyone except himself.
  • New Transfer Student: The basic outline of his character.
  • Nice Guy: Technically, who he is, but since his school pushes him past his limit in mere seconds, every episode, we rarely get to see this side of him.
  • Noisy Shut-Up: The only way he can be heard.
  • Not Allowed to Grow Up: Over the course of 4 real-life years, Adam has still managed to stay an 11 year old boy in 6th grade, with every passing episode taking place on his first year at Charles Darwin Middle School. The writers worked around this nicely, by only having episodes take place on a specific day once. (i.e. there's only one Halloween episode, one spring break episode, one Thanksgiving episode, etc.) Granted, these episodes are out of order, with Thanksgiving taking place 3 seasons after Halloween and spring break being in between the two, but there, we can just say the series is an "anachronic order" show and every episodes takes place somewhere within the same year.
    • He possibly turned 12 in "Supplies Party", but since no numbers were mentioned in dialogue, it can be said this was an ageless birthday episode.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: Pulled this off, to escape the advanced learning class.
  • Oblivious to Love: No matter how obvious they may be, all of Ingrid's hints that she loves Adam go right over his fiery little head.
  • Oh, Crap!: Says "Oh, Poopy." in these situations.
  • Only Sane Man: Literally, and figuratively.
  • Opinion Flip Flop: Pretends to like stupid crap like fake mustaches, Jiminy Japoopy music, and school plays, just so he and Kerry can have something to do together.
  • Ordinary High-School Student: In this case, middle school. Adam plays the role of the series' "everyman", acting as normal and down to earth as he possibly can, while existing in a high-case scenario of a bunch of talking zoo animals, driving him insane at CDMS. For the most part, he tries to maintain the profile of the school's literal and figurative only sane man, but due to sanity slippage, he mostly winds up as the "only man" among a plethora of other wackos, who are just as zany and deranged as him.
  • Parody Sue: At his old school, he was a perfect example of a popular boy, with straight A's, and a life that was just heaven on earth. The writers did this on purpose, to make it all the more hilariously painful for Adam, when he got transferred to his new school.
  • Photographic Memory: Adam was able to memorize football plays, word for word, after taking one look at the rule book in "Lyon of Scrimmage".
  • Pirate Parrot: Wore this as his Halloween costume in "It's the Scary Old Custodian, Adam Lyon".
  • Positive Friend Influence: Especially to Jake. His friends' lives would have a lot more problems and a lot less solutions if it weren't for him helping them out.
  • Potty Failure: It was learned that he wet his pants at his 6th birthday party and Chad still won't stop giving him Hell about it. On his 12th birthday, the exact same thing happened again.
  • The Prankster: Unintentionally became this in "Pranks for the Memories".
  • Protagonist Title: Technically, he is the "My" in the show's title.
  • Pungeon Master: At the end of "She's Koala That".
    Adam: I've been thinking of becoming a marsupial, but I don't think I meet all the koala-fications for it.
  • Rage Breaking Point: From time to time, this happens, but the most notable incident comes from "A Very Special Boy", when Principal Pixiefrog gave him an innocently insensitive reason you suck speech.
  • Rapid Aging: In "The Two Jakes", genetic clones of himself and Jake were crafted and went from 11 year old boys, to 90 year old men.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: He can be rather effeminate at times and has been noted to have a rather girly voice.
  • Red-Headed Stepchild: Though, the fact that he's a ginger usually has nothing to do with his loserdom, it is a running gag for people to poke fun at his hair color.
  • Redheads Are Uncool: In "Wild Thing", it was a running gag for people to think his head was on fire.
  • Ridiculously Successful Future Self: In "I Got a New Aptitude", he assumed he'd one day be a firefighting, spacewalking president.
  • Rookie Red Ranger: Despite being the new kid and all, he's always the one who figures out how to solve the problems.
  • Samaritan Syndrome: He's got a knack for helping his friends out, when they're in a jam. Over the seasons, he's done this so often, he's been the go-to guy for even the teachers, and it's now basically become his job at the school.
  • Screams Like a Little Girl: Adam has it so bad, that he actually used this as a power in "A Very Special Boy".
    Adam: Remove my special protected status, OR I'LL SCREECH MY FURLESS, PASTY, NAMBY PAMBY, CARGO-PAINTED, LUNGS OUT!!!
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Sensitive Guy to Jake's Manly Man.
  • The Shadow Knows: In "Where In the World Are Adam's Parents?", Adam was perceived by Jake, Slips, and Windsor as a parental murderer. When Adam was pleading innocent and holding a lint roller, a shadow of his was cast on the wall, depicting him with devil horns, and the lint roller was more dagger-shaped.
  • Shell-Shocked Veteran: In "Human Behavior", CDMS defined his personality, when he went full-on animal and could no longer cope with the outside human world.
  • Shrinking Violet: Afraid to tell Kerry that he loves her.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: Possibly doesn't have eyes for anyone, except Kerry.
  • Speaks Fluent Animal: Which is normal in this universe.
  • Stranger in a Strange School: A human boy accidentally sent to an animal school.
  • Strolling Through the Chaos: Every walk down the hallway for him.
  • Stubborn Hair: In "An Inconvenient Goof", his hair is shown to inflate to improbable proportions, in cases of intense humidity.
  • Sweeping Ashes: It's happened to him enough for him to eventually realize the harmlessness of getting burned to a crisp in "A Very Special Boy".
  • Suicide Attack: Attempted this in "A Whole Zoo World", but didn't die, of course.
    Jake: Adam? Are you okay? Remember, this is a kid show.
  • Token Human: The only human of Charles Darwin Middle School.
  • Traumatic Haircut: Did a number on himself in "The Cuddlemuffins".
  • Wanting Is Better Than Having: He had this in one episode when he temporarily went back to his old school, finding Charles Darwin Middle School to be more fun and interesting in comparison.
  • Vanity Is Feminine: For some reason, in "Ingrid Through the Out Door", a running gag involved the pack being weirded out by Adam's admiration for a picture of himself. If it's not because they were turned off by his narcissism, then maybe this might be the reason for their unhappy reactions?
  • Weak, but Skilled: When he became the school quarterback, we was too much of a weakling to throw a ball more than a few feet. However, he had the football plays down pat.
  • What Could Have Been: In-Universe, if Adam was never taken from his normal school, and that damn clerical error just never cane about, he would have a happily normal, almost perfect life, and a bright future, full of success and good fortune. Just his first year at CDMS alone, thoroughly changed him, as in it absolutely fucked him up. He's lost grip with his human nature, sullied his perfect character with personality flaws, and is destined to spend the rest of his life, working as a zoo animal, who literally sits in a prison-like cement room
  • White Male Lead: Of all the choices from the area's, rich and diverse student body, complete with Blacks, Asians, Latinos, etc. of course, a white guy, was chosen. Believe it or not, this is also lampshaded, but they refer to his skin color as "pink".
    • The whole "pink" thing is a reference to how some cultures (including the U.S.) used to refer to white people as such, due to the slightly pinkish undertone in their skin.
    • Likewise, black people used to be called "brown", for the same reasons. So, maybe it's good they didn't chose a black kid to be in that position, then.
  • Wise Beyond Their Years: Precocious for his age and was a A+ student at Chester Arthur. He also usually corrects Principal Pixiefrog, when he makes stupid decisions and he's always in the right.
  • You Have Got to Be Kidding Me!: Uses stock phrases like "Oh, come on!" and "Seriously?" along with him slapping his forehead. With Jake being his best friend, and his principal being an idiot, running an already ridiculously unconventional school, the situation calls for it a lot.
  • Youthful Freckles: Because he has red hair.
  • Zany Scheme: Despite Jake obviously being the mastermind behind these, the gang (including Jake) turned to Adam for zany advice in "Don't Noc It 'Til You Try It". To be fair, despite Jake coming up with these plans, Adam usually puts them into action.
    Jacob "Jake" P. Spidermonkey 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tvtropes_jake_spidermonkey.png
Voiced by: Tom Kenny

A spider monkey who quickly became Adam's best friend. He is often very possessive of Adam and hates not having him around regularly. Jake is emotional and goofy who takes to heart some of Adam's comments and actions, leading to some overly dramatic and exaggerated reactions. He can be lazy and selfish, but at the same time he is also fairly sensible.
  • Abnormal Limb Rotation Range: Jake's able to stretch his butt out to the front of his body to hug it, and can bend his head backwards, so he can get a good look at it.
  • Absentee Actor: Had no lines in the short, "Bathroom Break".
  • Acquired Situational Narcissism: In the comic book issue, "The Color of Monkey", which served as a sequel episode to "The Notorious Windsor Gorilla", the same basic plot from the latter was done again, only with Jake in the place of Windsor.
  • Addiction-Powered: Jake appears to be fueled by his love for his butt. As shown in "The Butt of the Jake", he lives and breathes off of it, and without obsessing over it every 5 seconds, he'd probably go insane.
  • Afraid of Needles: Made this more than obvious in "Inoculation Day".
  • Ambiguously Gay: Jake appears to like Adam as a bit more than just his best friend. He is shown to be excited when he gets rainbows on his report card, plus he's obsessed with his own butt. Hit it's epitome in "Kerry to Dance?" when Jake wanted to take Adam to prom (as friends), and got jealous of him taking Kerry instead.
    • Unfortunately, for any Ho Yay fans, this was explicitly denied in "Up All Night", when Adam nearly kisses Jake and Jake said "Don't get the wrong idea, Adam. I know I'm a looker. And I like you and all, (hypermasculine voice) but not that way."
  • Animal Stereotypes: Oh look, the monkey character is hyperactive and nutty.
  • Annoying Younger Sibling: Considering he has older siblings, it's likely he's this.
  • Anti-Hero: When he and Adam try to save the day, he's usually the one throwing curve balls at both Adam and himself.
  • Anti-Role Model: Obviously not someone the younger viewers should look up to.
  • Apes in Space: Jake's impulsive dream was to become an astronaut in "Pants in Space".
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Constantly distracted by trivial things, when Adam's trying to have an important conversation with him.
    • This was directly subverted in "Shiny Thing", where Jake was the only student in the school, who wasn't entranced by the glare of the glass doorknob. No in-universe explanation for this was given.
  • Attention Whore: Of his basic cable access show, "Basic Jake", introduced in the episode of the same name.
  • Ax-Crazy: Took this quite literally in "Amazon Kevin", readying himself to break through a door with an ax and possibly pull off a Here's Johnny, terrorizing a poor crocodile hunter.
  • Badass Mustache: "Nice Mustache"
  • Berserk Button: Using the term "going ape" will send him, transcending a downward spiral into unadulterated hysteria.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: Is horrifyingly vicious and violent, when angered.
  • Big Eater: Orders massive school lunches and engorges on them.
  • Bishonen Line: His genetic clone in "The Two Jakes", revealed that through rapid aging, Jake will develop to look more "human shaped" as he gets older.
  • Blow You Away: Screamed so loud a gust of wind, blew all the students and teacher across the halls in "Inoculation Day".
  • Bumbling Sidekick: Worthless for 98% of every episode, but then redeems himself at the last second ... mostly ... half of the time ... sometimes ... rarely ... I'm not saying "never", cuz he's done it before.
  • Cartoony Tail: Has a big tail that he swings on trees with and can apparently stretch out very long.
  • Chaotic Stupid: Only got progressively worse, as the series went on.
  • Class Clown: In "Human Behavior", Miss Chameleon told him to make animal calls. He then picked up a phone and said "Hello, animals?", making all the other students laugh.
  • Character Development: When it comes to this, Jake sort of developed backwards, doing the reverse of what's normally expected from a character of his archetype. In the first few seasons, Jake acted just as silly and reckless as always, but whenever he screwed something up, he's either realize his wrongdoing and try to fix it or get punished for refusing to do so. Overtime, he not only became more stupid and destructive, but he'd also lack any proper punishment and fail to feel any guilt or remorse for what he did.
  • The Chosen Wannabe: In "Pants in Space", Jake threw a huge fit over not being the monkey chosen to be sent to outer space.
  • Clueless Detective: In "Where in the World Are Adam's Parents?"
  • Comically Small Bribe: In "The Notorious Windsor Gorilla", Jake convinced Adam to watch Windsor's commercial, by saying "I'll give you your moisturizer back."
    • A very dark subversion happened in "Lonely Lyon", when Jake convinced his friends to help him, by saying "I'll give you your souls back." as he held up a briefcase, supposedly containing the souls of his friends.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: A rare male-on-male example whenever Adam hangs out with somebody else.
  • Da Editor: Became this in "Poop Scoop", when he worked for the School Newspaper Club.
  • Deuteragonist: He may be the "Monkey" in the show's title, but Adam is the "My", and that word comes first.
  • Deus Ax Machina: In "Amazon Kevin", he took out an ax and tried chopping open the closet door, to get to his mortal enemy, Amazon Kevin.
  • Dirty Coward: Whenever Adam is even remotely involved in one of his destructive antics, he tries placing all the blame on Adam. Sometimes it works, sometimes Adam goes down with him, but there's never a moment, where Adam doesn't get in trouble.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: When Adam used the term "ape" in "The "A" Word", Jake was so offended that he unfriended Adam and looked for a new one. Adam tortured himself, trying to make it up to him, only to find out "ape" was a compliment and he was jealous Adam used it on someone else.
  • Distracted by My Own Sexy: In this case, all the sexy is focused entirely on his butt.
  • The Ditz: The guy's a moron.
  • Dumb Jock: Although not to the extreme that's usually expected in media, in "Lyon of Srimmage", it was made clear the guy had a great football throwing arm, but was terrible at understanding the rules ans strategies.
  • Dumbass Has a Point: In "Pride and Pixiefrog", he surprised even himself, when he abruptly made logical predictions on what future events would unfold, using information from the current situation.
    Jake: If I made sense, it was totally on accident.
  • Equippable Ally: From time to time, Adam has thrown him or grabbed him by the tail, using him as a medieval flail.
  • Everything's Better with Monkeys: The show wouldn't be the same without him. I mean, come on, who would Adam's gym partner be then? Lupe?
    Adam: My Gym Partner is a Toucan.
    Lupe: Toucan! Toucan! Toucan!
    Adam: Bullshark, porcupine, I don't know what. Going to this school's a pain in the-
    (Lupe grabs Adam in mid-air)
    Lupe: Oye! Adam, leave the distasteful remarks to me, comprende?
  • Exposed Animal Bellybutton: Shown when he unzipped his fur in "Chew on This".
  • Extreme Omnivore: Ever since his discovery in "Chew on This", Jake hasn't been afraid to try new things, whether these "things" are edible or not. In one episode, he and other animal students started eating books, which helped them absorb knowledge better than reading them.
  • Expy: Jake can often be reminiscent of Spongebob, both having the same VA and being annoying, pint-sized, dimwits, who cause chaos and mayhem and don't get in trouble for it. At times when Jake screams really loud, it's easy to picture Spongebob making the same noise, himself.
  • Famous Ancestor: A famous cousin in his case. His cousin is the pet monkey of world-famous celebrity, Dobie Broadway Junior, a parody of Michael Jackson. So, basically Jake Spidermonkey is related to Mr. Bubbles.
  • Fan Boy: Of Truffles Duvaal.
  • The Fool: Pretty self-explanatory.
  • Fortune Teller: Became one in "The Citronella Solution" and apparently, he actually had the ability to see into the future. But of course, this was never mentioned again.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: Sanguine.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: He's kind of the annoying one of the group, for his rudeness and constant jokes about his butt. This was shown best in "The Butt of the Jake".
  • Gross-Up Close-Up: His butt has been the star of many of these.
  • Half-Dressed Cartoon Animal: Played with. Jake wears no pants and makes sure to draw as much attention to it as possible.
    Jake: (singing) I love the way my can can dance. Guess that is why I don't wear pants!
  • He-Man Woman Hater: Although it's not as extreme as the trope usually is, he's shown mild cases of this. In "Save the Drama for Your Llama", he celebrated the absence of Ingrid and Lupe and was happy their group was now dude central.
  • The Hedonist: Generally cares only about himself and his butt and rarely does anything for the sake of something that won't please him.
  • Heh Heh, You Said "X": Does this whenever someone says anything even slightly butt-related.
    Adam: This obsession is making you miss out on school work. You're really falling behind.
    Jake: Heh, heh, you said "butt".
    Adam: No, I said "Behind"!
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Adam.
  • Hidden Depths: In "The Citronella Solution", he had the ability to levitate, using only his mind, and in "Lie, Cheetah, Steal", he solved complex math equations in his head, during his free time.
  • Human Hammer-Throw: Or, monkey hammer throw. In "Go Fetch!", Jake serves as the subject in The Amazing Reverse Lateral Upside Down Tail Spring Monkey Throw Flamdoodle Dilly.
  • Hypocrisy Nod: Jake is full-aware of the fact that he's a destructive bozo, but he continues about his life, anyway.
    Jake: You should know by now, I can't be trusted with anything I say ... ever.

  • Idiot Ball: "The Butt of the Jake", "Guano in 60 Seconds", "Yesterday's Funny Monkey", "Four Eyed Jake", "Bad News Bear", "Mountain Dude", "The Spiffanos", "The Little Mermonkey", and basically half the Jake central episodes are based on this.

  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Not such a good pal to Adam, but he does care about him deep down.

  • Misspelling Out Loud: "D E R F"
  • Mysterious Middle Initial: It's never learned what "P" stands for.
  • N-Word Privileges: Subverted in "The "A" Word", where Jake was heartbroken by Adam's use of the word "Ape". Apparently, this was the equivalent of "The N Word" in the monkey community and Adam went through Hell, digging himself out of the hole he put himself in. In the end, it turned out "Ape" was actually the greatest compliment in the monkey community and Jake was jealous Adam used it on someone other than him.
  • Naked People Are Funny: Thinks jokes about his own butt are downright hilarious.
  • Never My Fault: Never takes responsibility for his actions. Ever. Most of the time, the blame is placed on Adam.
  • Nice Hat: Got a cool, blue baseball cap.
  • Noodle Incident: In "Glazed and Confused", Adam mentioned him being involved in some kind of accident at a bubblegum factory, which caused him to lose all his fur. Now he has to wear a toupee.

    Jake: ... and so I said to him, "Australopithecus? You hardly even know us!"
    [Everyone Laughs]

  • Stripped to the Bone: Got this by Lacey Badger in "Me Adam, You Jake".
  • Strong Family Resemblance: His parents are just slightly bigger versions of him with maternal-and-paternal-specific tertiary sexual characteristics.
  • Stupidity-Inducing Attack: This would be him going full on ape and acting like a psychotic, killing, monkey. His stupidity keeps him from understanding how much damage he's really causing, making even more relentless.
  • Too Dumb to Live: In "Guano in 60 Seconds", Jake nearly killed himself, and the entire school, by setting a trailer, rolling down a dangerous highway, while everyone was in it, and destroying the breaks.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Bananas and Wormy Joes.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: On the football team.
    Coach Gills: Our quarterback is a dimwit! He's got a great arm, but he just can't remember the blasted plays!

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tvtropes_slips_python.png

  • '70s Hair: He's got a blond wavy gravy hairdo, which goes great with his hippie-like personality.
  • Agent Mulder: Slips' gullibility allows him to believe everything he hears, making him a consistent source of misinformation. Windsor often plays the agent scully to this side of him.
  • Amazingly Embarrassing Parents: Slips is so embarrassed by his totally lame parents in public, man.
  • Animal Jingoism: Parodied in "Mongoosed", a mongoose, his natural enemy, as a snake, were the best of friends, before realizing that they're supposed to be enemies for some reason, causing them to automatically hate each other, without any actual reason.

  • Does Not Like Women: Slips is the only member of the pack, who's never had a love interest, girlfriend, etc. He's an independent dude, who just doesn't have the time or effort for chicks.
  • Dumb Is Good: Seems to be the most laid-back and care-free member of the pack, due to his stupidity and lack of knowledge about anything going on around him.
  • Dumb Jock: Slips is no brain surgeon, and he was on the football team in "Lyon of Scrimmage".
  • Dumbass Has a Point: Slips is actually a distinguished, highly sophisticated young man, whose intelligence is being repressed by Jake and his peer pressuring behavior, as seen in "The Ivy League".
    Slips: I realized after Jake left, that his constant barrage of buttock buffoonery was dumbing everything down. I feel so much clearer and smarter now.
  • Enlightenment Superpowers: In "Mellow Fellows", he had a deep understanding of human and animal emotions and was able to effortlessly solve people's most internalized of mental and psychological distress in seconds.

  • Extreme Omnivore: Ate a painting in "The Notorious Windsor Gorilla".
  • The Fool: Although, he often has to compete with Jake, for that title.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: Phlegmatic.
  • Handicapped Badass: Being a snake, he is violent, when going into attack mode, regardless of him being the animal equivalent of a quadruple amputee.
  • The Heart: He's the member of the pack with feelings.
  • Hidden Depths: In "The Ivy League", he proved to be an extremely intelligent, well-spoken, scholarly individual, who only acted stupid, due to Jake, repressing his true knowledge. Not to mention, this side of him wasn't complete, without him wearing giant smart guy glasses. Add to that, since he was a snake, and therefore had no ears, his glasses had to be supported with tape.
  • I Have No Son: Though it's never seen on screen, Slips heavily implies in dialogue, that his father disapproves of him being such a failure. Fortunately, he seems to delightfully dim-witted to notice.

  • Nice Guy: His chill and care-free manner makes for a snake with not a mean bone in his body. Only argues and shows his fangs on rare occasions, such as "Mongoosed" and a brief moment in "Oh, Henry!".
  • Non-Mammalian Hair: His blonde hair.
  • Noticing the Fourth Wall: Didn't know he was in a cartoon until Windsor explained it in "Human Behavior".
  • Out of Focus: Slips had no dialogue in the first episode.
  • Painful Transformation: His first time shedding his skin in "The Sheds".
  • Reptiles Are Abhorrent: Averted. He's actually a pretty decent guy.

  • Seldom-Seen Species: A green tree python.
  • Shown Their Work: Pythons are slow-moving, nearly silent animals that can often be found hanging from tree branches and sunning themselves, especially after a particularly big meal. Imagining one as a laid-back slacker is not much of a stretch.
  • Signature Laugh: He has a hissing laugh.
  • The Slacker: Louses around in class and gets no work done.
  • Snakes Are Sinister: Subverted. Slips doesn't have a mean bone in his body.
  • So Proud of You: In "The Ivy League", Slips mentioned finally gaining his father's approval, though it's never explained what he did.

  • Sssssnaketalk: Surprisingly, not often with him. It does happen, though, whenever he goes primal and lets out his inner-viciousness, turning into the true, constrictor snake he is.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: His parents are larger versions of him with tertiary sexual characteristics and different shades of green. Same goes for his "sister", who's basically a beefier, muscular version of him.
  • Surfer Dude: Talks like this.
  • The Stoner: Acts like one and if this show wasn't for kids, he'd often be seen laying back in a beanbag chair, coiled around a bottle of bong, pondering the nature of the universe, but coming up with ridiculous theories as to why we're all here.
  • Token Evil Teammate: Slips is a meat-eating serpent, who has no trouble devouring live animals, such as gerbils and rats, making him the one predator in a herd full of prey. Though in his case, "evil" is a very loose term.
  • Verbal Tic: Dude, he says "Dude" at the beginning, middle, dude, and end of a lot of his sentences, dude.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Despite being one, even he can't stand them.
  • Your Size May Vary: The length of Slips' body is sometimes extended, mostly on purpose, to make it more suitable for a certain scene or gag, which requires him to be that long.

    Windsor T. Gorilla 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tvtropes_windsor_gorilla.png
Voiced by: Rick Gomez

A highly intelligent lowland gorilla who serves as the anti-bully at the school and often gives confusing wisdom to people. He speaks in a soft-spoken and nearly monotonous manner, often stringing together technical words as a matter of his normal speech.
  • Absurd Phobia: Apparently has a fear of small animals that are generally seen as adorable and otherwise harmless. In "Mellow Fellows", he mentioned having a fear of kittens, and in "Four Eyed Jake", he was shown to have a fear of puppies.
  • Acquired Situational Narcissism: In "The Notorious Windsor Gorilla", he goes through the whole shebang. He becomes famous for something someone else did, let's it go to his head, throws a diva tantrum, and knocks himself down to yesterday's news, all over the course of 15 Minutes.
  • Adorkable: Windsor's a nerdy science/math/history geek, alright and he's had his cute moments. Though we don't see it much, his adorableness comes out, when he's at his most vulnerable. Like when he's shy around his girl crush in "Gorilla My Dreams" or if he's emotionally distraught in "Mandrill of the House".
  • Affectionate Nickname: Was called "Gorilla Boy", by his girlfriend, Deborah Ape.
  • Agent Scully: Often in contrast to Slips' agent mulder, Windsor always has a rational explanation for everything, with the exception of "That Darn Platypus", when he was totally on board with him on the idea of aliens invading the school.
  • Always Someone Better: He was the better man in "Pants in Space". When CDMS planned on sending a monkey student to space, Jake was totally on board with it and he would've been sent straight on there, no questions asked, if not for the introduction of much more audible candidate, the illustrious Windsor Gorilla. After all, he is the smart one, who's fascinated with space, and he's not a destructive idiot like Jake, so can you really blame him?
  • Ambiguously Bi: In The Hyena And The Mighty, he calls Rufus Hyena his sweet, implying the two may be in a relationship despite Rufus being a one shot character. However, later, he was seen being attracted to another female gorilla.
  • Apes in Space: Windsor suddenly had dreams of becoming an astronaut in "Pants in Space".
  • Art Evolution: Very subtle, but in the first episode, Windsor's eyebrows are very thick, saturated, and bushy, but this all goes away as early as Episode #2.
  • Bad Impressionists: His "voice impressions" of people are just him using his normal voice, and saying phrases they'd usually say.
  • Berserk Button: Mentioning his mother's romantic life, will, in seconds, make him snap and go completely ape.
  • Big Ego, Hidden Depths: "Mandrill of the House" proved that Windsor has a heart as big as his brain, and he gave a large part of it toward hid mother.
  • The Big Guy: A large gorilla.
  • Big Guy, Little Guy: He's the big guy to best friend, Slips' little guy.
  • Black Face: Lampshaded in "Flesh Fur Fantasy", when Windsor got offended by Adam dressing as a gorilla.
  • The Bore: His long-winded spiels about scientific facts tend to drone on and bore people witless and he knows it. He mentioned in "A Very Special Boy", that he does this intentionally, to keep people he doesn't like from talking to him.
  • Brains and Brawn: Both.
  • Brainy Brunette: He is considered "brainy" and his hair does in fact have brown pigments. Fits like a glove.
  • The Caretaker: Served as this to Rufus Hyena, when he was crying, and in need of help.
  • Cheshire Cat Grin: Given the largeness of his mouth, he looks like this on the rare moments, when he smiles. Guess that's why he mostly talks out of the side of his mouth.
  • Character Development: In the first few seasons, Windsor was an emotionless slate, with no internal desires or emotions other than apathy and condescension, but in episodes like "Mandrill of the House", "Gorilla My Dreams", and "Flesh Fur Fantasy", he's proven to have a beating heart under all that fur, and a few things that trigger him, such as his mother, cultural appropriation, romantic desire, etc.
  • Child Prodigy: Windsor's given age is either 11 or 12 years old, seeing as how he's in the same grade as Adam, this being 6th grade. Yet, he's far more intelligent than everyone else at his learning lever and even exhibits more knowledge than his teachers on various school subjects. Not to mention his deep interest in the universe and his absurdly advanced vocabulary.
  • Cloudcuckoolander's Minder: To Slips.
  • Comically Serious: Sometimes, he can be at his funniest, when he's just explaining something logically.
  • The Conscience: Most notably to Slips, but can even be this to usual voice of reason, Adam. Like how no one listens to Adam, Windsor gets the same reaction from him.
  • Consulting Mr Puppet: Sees Teddy Truman, a ventriloquist dummy of his as a different person, who he has emotional problems with.
  • Cursed with Awesome: Windsor's self-proclaimed "good looks", or lack thereof, have gotten him in lots of trouble. In "Gorilla My Dreams", he became the love interest of a very unattractive girl. In "The Notorious Windsor Gorilla", his photogenic appearance put him through an acquired situational narcissism story. Maybe it's best to consider these self-proclaimed good looks are more "self-proclaimed" than they seem.
  • Daddy Issues: Windsor's dad doesn't live with him and is divorced from his mom, and has overall, never physically appeared, but he's been mentioned a few times before and Windsor has some major I am not my father problems with him, that really hit close to home, when he's reminded of them.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Prone to sarcasm.
  • Ditzy Genius: Despite being the smart one, he was paranoid about an alien invasion in "That Darn Platypus", he acted like a buffoon in front of his school crush in "Gorilla My Dreams", and had trouble distinguishing robots from teachers in "Robo Frog 3000".
  • Encyclopaedic Knowledge: Delivers college essay-worthy descriptions on many different subjects, every time he's asked about them.
  • Fanboy: Of Jimminy Japoopy.
  • Fat and Skinny: He and Slips.
  • Flat Joy: Does nothing but flatly say the word "Joy", when happy.
  • Foil: Windsor shows off Slips' stupidity with his intellectual contrast.
  • For Science!!: That's Windsor alright.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: Phlegmatic.
  • Fourth-Wall Observer: Although Adam and Jake break the fourth wall the most, Windsor's the most "Meta" with his breakages.
    Windsor: Adam, for the past two seasons I've had you pegged as a classic narcissist. Obsessed with his own feelings of not fitting in around here. But, by offering to be my coach, I now see that you understand how to make a sacrifice for the common good.
  • The Finicky One: Can be rather uptight and neat freakish sometimes.
  • Fragile Flower: Emotionally, at least. He still is very much a tough as nails, buff guy.
  • Freudian Slip: When Mr. Mandrill started dating his mother, this was a constant dilemma with him.
    Windsor: Hey, why don't you roll around in someone else's mudder, uh ... I mean mud.
  • Fully Dressed Cartoon Animal: Only main character to wear an entire outfit.
  • Geek Physiques: Subverted, has more of a "Jock Physique" than anything.
  • Genius Bruiser: He's both intelligent and powerful.
  • Gentle Giant: Despite his massive physique, he's perfectly capable of taking care of a baby for a school project.
  • Gentleman and a Scholar: Windsor may appear as sarcastic and condescending, but that's because we mostly see him, hanging around a bunch of dimwits and buffoons. If you see him interacting with people of genuine or at least average intelligence and only people of said intelligence, (i.e. Adam Lyon in "Pants in Space"), he's a very respectful, friendly man.
  • Girl of My Dreams: Played straight with Deborah Ape, and punned in the title of the episode in question, "Gorilla My Dreams".
  • Holier Than Thou: In "Pants in Space", he was the better candidate for being an astronaut than Jake.
  • Hulking Out: Windsor occasionally goes full-blown primitive gorilla.
  • I Am Not My Father: Windsor hinted at having a real issue with this in a one off joke in "Ain't Too Proud To Egg", where he yells at his egg son, and then realizes he's directly quoting his father.
  • I Lied: At the end of "The Hyena and The Mighty", he revealed to have lied about Rufus Hyena's impending demise, earlier in the episode.
  • Lovable Nerd: Very.
  • Mobile Shrubbery: Used a moving bush to hide from Deb, but all the leaves fell off, when she spotted him.
  • Momma's Boy: To Margie.
  • Monkeys On A Type Writer: In "Shiny Thing", he wrote his school report, by pounding on a typewriter.
  • Mysterious Middle Initial: It's never learned what "T" stands for.
  • Neat Freak: Though not much, he's shown a few symptoms of this.
  • Nice Hat: A green beanie that's always at a protruding angle.
  • Non-Malicious Monster: A non-threatening gorilla.
  • Not So Above It All: Tries to act like in-series media, such as Yo Mama, Jimminy Japoopy, and The Rhinossance Fair, are beneath him, since they're too "stupid" and don't "challenge his intelligence" enough, but there's no denying he's just a big a fan of that stuff as all the dumb people.
  • Oedipus Complex: Has a few issues with his mother, dating non-his-father people, as seen in "Mandrill of the House", and a one-off joke at the end of "The Notorious Windsor Gorilla.
  • Out-of-Character Moment: He revealed that he has a stupid sounding voice with a tongue-sticking-out, spit lithp, and that his intelligent vocal pattern is false, and used to protect an aura of deep intelligence.
  • Parent with New Paramour: Windsor played the "disapproving kid" role, when Mr. Mandrill started dating his single mother.
  • Perpetual Frowner: Always has the same, dull, emotionless, stoic expression of dead eyes and a big fat frown, and although he does, rarely even changes it, when happy, scared, angry, etc.
  • Primal Chest-Pound: He IS a gorilla, after all. In one episode, he uses this to call his friends. Curiously, while most episodes has him do it with clenched fists like most cartoon gorillas, in "The Notorious Windsor Gorilla" he pounds his chest with open hands like a real gorilla would.
  • Serious Business: Schoolwork, and he's probably the only one of the group, who takes his work seriously.
  • Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness: Windsor tends to make his sentences as overly eloquent as possible, by throwing in as much big smart words as could possibly substitute shorter ones.
  • Shirtless Scene: In "Don't Noc It 'Til You Try It", Windsor tore off his shirt and pounded his chest to summon the others.
  • Shown Their Work: Gorillas are known to be large, intelligent and generally mild-mannered. Windsor's status as a stoic Genius Bruiser fits perfectly in this regard.
  • Signature Laugh: "Laughter."
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: Teddy Truman, and his comically serious personality makes it all the more funny.
  • The Spock: That's Windsor, alright.
  • Straight Man: To Slips' comic.
  • Took a Level in Badass: In "Mandrill of the House", Windsor became more prone to protective violence and defensive rampaging, being able to destroy everything in sight and kick the sorry asses of anyone who dares mock him. This sudden surge of badassery was fueled by his mother dating his health teacher, and the awkwardness and pain this brought upon him.
  • Ventriloquism: Windsor's recurring ventriloquist dummy, Teddy Truman.
  • Wham Episode: His would be "Mandrill of the House", where he went through some extreme character development and revealed tons of hidden depths about his life at home, life his parents, his true emotions, etc. Truly, this was the moment when Windsor stooped being the generic "smart guy" archetype, he usually acts like and starts becoming someone spectacular.
    • Another "sort-of-whammish" episode would be "Gorilla My Dreams", where Windsor also shows emotions, reveals his soft side, has his first crush, and learns some stuff that makes him believe stuff he didn't believe when the episode started.
  • Wise Beyond Their Years: Despite being 12, Windsor knows more than the teachers.
  • You Are the New Trend: In "The Notorious Windsor Gorilla", just because of a big-eyed painting of his face.

    Guadalupe "Lupe" Toucan 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tvtropes_lupe_toucan.png
Voiced by: Grey DeLisle

A female Keel-billed toucan, who is loud-mouthed, acerbic, dominating and materialistic, although she considers herself to be mild-tempered and low maintenance.
  • Absurd Phobia: Has a fear of French Toast.
  • Activist Fundamentalist Antics: In "Diplomatic Insanity", Lupe physically abused Adam and threatened to sue the school, all because she thought the teachers and students were enforcing negative toucan stereotypes.
  • Attention Whore: Sometimes wears bright, flashy clothes and needs everyone to pay attention to her.
  • Badass Adorable: She may be tiny and cute, but she's probably the most violent and quick to anger member of the pack.
  • Berserk Button: Telling her you don't think she's pretty.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: A loyal and friendly companion, but piss her off and she'll return the favor, only she'll make it 1000 times more painful.
    • In "Diplomatic Insanity", she was sick of people making jokes about Kiki Von Beaky. She threatened anyone who would dare mock her again. Adam and Jake did just this, not hearing about what she said, and Lupe came down and apparently nuked them, but only gave Adam an amusing injury.
    • In "She's Koala That", Deidre insulted her, after she helped her become popular. Lupe darted after her like a bullet, ready to give her the beating of a lifetime.
    • In "Lupe in Love", she did the biggest of them all, when Orlando "dumped" her.
  • Big Guy, Little Guy: The little guy to Ingrid's big guy.
  • Carnivore Confusion: Has no problem eating turkey or other avian food products.
  • Catch-Phrase: Usually putting "Oye!" at the beginning of angry sentences.
  • The Cheerleader: As seen in "Cheer Pressure".
  • Does Not Like Men: Wishes this was true about her, but in "Four Eyed Jake", it came to revelation, that she absolutely lived and breathed off of her boyfriend, Corey. She went through no lengths at all to change this, except for occasionally stating this was her personality.

  • The Fashionista: Lupe is obsessed with her appearance, especially when it comes to clothing and jewelry.
  • Flight: Being a bird, this can be considered her special "superpower" on the team.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: Choleric.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: She's occasionally, but but too often, shunned by the herd for being egotistical, loud, and annoying.
  • Funny Foreigner: She'd probably be nothing more than the token Hispanic friend if cast was all humans.
  • Gag Nose: Or in this case, a beak.
  • Genki Girl: Loud, exuberant, crazy at times.
  • Gratuitous Spanish: Lupe always throws in a Spanish word, that sounds similar enough to it's English counterpart to be understood, in the middle of her sentences.
  • Hates Being Touched: Lupe once tried to bite Adam's head off for yanking her feathers off, but couldn't because of some "protected status" garbage.
    Lupe: NO! YOU CAN NOT DO THAT! (Lupe roars and attempts to attack Adam, but then abruptly silences herself) Actually, yes. Yes, you can. (sticks out another tail feather) You missed one.
  • Henpecked Husband: This is how she treats her boyfriend, Corey.
    • She probably looks for this in a man. Since in "Ain't too Proud to Egg", she tried wearing the pants in her egg assignment relationship with Slips, but he was just too confident.
  • Hidden Depths: In "A Very Special Boy", she revealed to have a very, clear, normal-sounding voice, that came with a fluent American accent, but she just pretends to have an obnoxious, raspy Spanish accent to ward off predators.

  • Interspecies Romance: We're reaching a bit with this, but she, a toucan is dating, Corey, a vulture.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Lupe has a good heart despite how annoying she is.

  • Manipulative Bastard: Lupe wears the pants in both her friendship with Ingrid and relationship with Corey and she knows it.
  • Motor Mouth: Often runs her beak, in conversations with Ingrid or Corey.

  • Perpetual Molt: In "The Sheds".
  • Petite Pride: Little bird who thinks big of herself.
  • Pimped-Out Dress: Wears these from time to time. One of the main moments would be "Uniformity".
    Jake: Yes, it's fiery femme fatale, Lupe Toucan, muy caliente, chica. You're look's the fire bomb.
  • Secret Identity Vocal Shift: In "A Very Special Boy", she reveals that her real voice is perfectly normal and she speaks fluent English. She just disguises it with a loud, raspy, Spanish accent, to ward off predators.
    Lupe: I-I lift my voice several octaves and put on an-an outrageous accent. Sometimes I yell. Most predators don't wanna devour an noisy meal, so they just move onto someone else.

    Ingrid Giraffe 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tvtropes_ingrid_giraffe.png
Voiced by: Grey DeLisle

A female masai giraffe. Her towering height only adds to her feelings of insecurity as she tries desperately to blend into the background. She has a crush on Adam.
  • Adorkable: Shows shades of dorky behavior. She's gawky, gangly and sweet.
  • Aesop Amnesia: In "Kerry to Dance?", she learned to stop hating Kerry for being Adam's love interest, but in "A Thanksgiving Carol", she was shown to be jealous of her again.
  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: In "Ingrid Trough the Out Door", Ingrid admitted to disliking Adam's being a pansy. When she heard about a so-called high school older brother of his, she was instantly into dating a guy with a bit more social strength.
  • All-Loving Hero: Ingrid is kind to all living things, even if they don't return her favors.
  • Alphabetical Theme Naming: Her sister's named "Inga".
  • Apologises a Lot: She's sort of been programmed to say she's sorry, whenever someone gets mad at her, whether she actually did them wrong or not.
    Windsor: If I'd have known it'd end so soon, I'd have eaten more butter.
    Ingrid: I'd have apologized more for things I didn't do.
    Slips: And I'd have eaten more butter.
    Windsor: Hey! You stole mine!
    Ingrid: I'm sorry!
  • Baby Talk: Her insignificance often gets her spoken to this way by her friends.
    Ingrid: Guys, this is a super rare fuchsia acacia leaf!
    Adam: Great, job Ingrid! (Condescending) Good for you!
  • Being Personal Isn't Professional: Has emotional meltdowns, fueled either by her own insecurities or love for Adam, causing her to make a big scene in class or during other times at school.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Although Ingrid is generally the most feeble and submissive member of the pack, when she hits her breaking point, she's a force more destructive and furious than her dominant other, Lupe.
  • Big Guy, Little Guy: (or gal in this case), Ingrid's the big gal to Lupe's little gal.
  • Break the Cutie: Quite a few episodes do this to her.
  • The Chick: Among the pack, She and Lupe intervene with this role. Basically, whenever Lupe becomes the muscle, the chatterbox, or the spicy Latina of the herd, or takes on any other trait that's not specifically feminine, Ingrid becomes the chick.
  • Catch-Phrase: "I'm sorry!"
  • The Cheerleader: As seen in "Cheer Pressure" and the beginning of "Animal School Musical".
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: In "Lyon's Anatomy", despite how she wasn't dating Adam.

  • Cute Clumsy Girl: Tends to trip frequently.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: She tries to break up Kerry and Adam more than once.
  • Dogged Nice Girl: To Adam.
  • Diary: Cover to cover, she has one full of cute things that Adam has done. Principal Pixiefrog bought and read it in one episode, enjoying all the juicy details, which of course, humiliated her.
  • Driven by Envy: Her primary motives in episodes focusing on her. 90% of the time, it's about another girl swooping in on her Adam.
  • Dynamic Character: Although her favorite thing in the whole wide world of Adam Lyon, later seasons show that she has quite a few secondary interests, such as Acacia trees (but that was kind of a major trait from the beginning), hairclips, Asian culture, and tulips.
  • Encyclopaedic Knowledge: Knows everything about her own species, even how much hours of sleep they need per night.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Although she's madly in love with Adam, she was repulsed by him being bald and naked in "The Cuddlemuffins", and refused to hug him, unless he paid her.
  • Fashion Hurts: In "Kerry to Dance?" she wore high heels, which caused her to trip, and burned her corneas with glitter, when applying too much makeup.
  • Flowers of Romance: Her favorite flowers, tulips are a sign of romance.
  • Forceful Kiss: After being denied in "Hygiene Hijinks" she pulls this on Adam often in the musical episode.
  • Foreign Culture Fetish: Has a bit of an obsession for Asian culture.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: Melancholic.
  • Genial Giraffe: Ingrid is the most considerate animal in the group, regularly playing the heart of the herd. She's kind and serviceable to her best friend, Lupe and goes out of her way to make Adam happy.
  • Gentle Giant: The tallest kid in the school, and is very kind and mild-mannered.
  • Girly Girl: Every now and then. Taken to extremes during her musical number from "Animal School Musical".

  • Hot Skitty-on-Wailord Action: The outcome of Ingrid's hypothetical relationship with Adam.
  • Huge Schoolgirl: The tallest student in the school (her head is out of the screen most of the time).
  • The Hunter Becomes the Hunted: She was on the "hunted" side of the spectrum, when she was one of the few prey animals to join Marlin Perkins Wild High School.
  • Interspecies Romance: Her crush on human boy, Adam Lyon.
  • Joins to Fit In: In "Ingrid Through the Out Door", she befriended some fellow tall people at a high-school, after being the "tall one" in the pack was ticking her off.
  • Long Neck: Perfect example.
  • Minor Major Character: Despite being a main cast member, she'll often get left out of the group entirely, if left with little to no dialogue. This was lampshaded in the musical episode, during her moment of awesome.
    Ingrid: Listen! I've barely had three lines in this musical! Maybe you think giraffes are supposed to be some kind of mute creatures, BUT WE ACTUALLY HAVE BEAUTIFUL SINGING VOICES!!!
  • Mundane Object Amazement: Fuchsia Acacia leaves.
  • My Friends... and Zoidberg: The outcast of the pack.
  • Nice Girl: One reason why she's so submissive and overpowered is because she's the most polite and mild-mannered member of the herd.
  • The Only One I Trust: Can only trust people within her friend circle, as everyone else will take abuse, take advantage of, and leave her.
  • Our Giants Are Bigger: Her older sister is twice her size.
  • Out of Focus: When it comes to merchandise, there are no toys of her. Although, this is most likely due to the fact that her exaggerated size makes it rather tricky to put into toy-form, without making an oversized product or derailing her from her actual appearance.
  • Power Up Full Color Change: When her berserk button is hit, and she finally takes charge of things, her body goes from it's natural yellow, to becoming bright red, with anger.
  • Shrinking Violet: A shy giraffe.
  • Single-Stroke Battle: Her slightly anti-climactic final battle with Lola Llama.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: Wouldn't dream of seeing anyone other than Adam.
  • Smitten Teenage Girl: Has a typical schoolgirl crush on Adam.
  • Stalker with a Crush: To Adam of all people.
  • Tiny Guy, Huge Girl: She, and Adam to a massive extent.
  • With Friends Like These...: In "Sidekicked" it was hinted, she secretly yearned to knock some sense into Lupe to stop that beak of hers from squawking anymore.
  • Yandere: She can get pretty crazy about her crush on Adam.
  • Your Size May Vary: Ingrid's height is completely inconsistent in pretty much every frame she's in. The animators made a stylistic choice of never showing her entire neck all at once, and with these intended height contradictions, to break this rule would be pretty pointless, since episodes such as "Ingrid Through the Out Door" have jokes that her neck is long enough to knock satellites out of orbit.

Other Students

    Virgil "Bull" Sharkowski 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tvtropes_bull_sharkowski.png
Voiced by: Phil LaMarr

A bull shark and the school's bully.
  • Always Someone Better: His older sister is a way better bully than he'll ever be. He's extremely sensitive about this fact. Especially so when she managed to teach Adam to go frenzy in minutes though trolling. A concept he himself spent the whole episode trying to teach the ever oblivious Adam to no avail.
  • Ascended Extra: In "Animal School Musical", he was treated like the seventh member of the pack, being on the same importance level as Adam, Jake, Slips, Windsor, Lupe, and Ingrid. Apparently, Bull plated the "The Muscle" of the herd. This, however, only lasted for the first two songs of the musical, before he was cast back into the shadows again.
  • Barbaric Bully: Bull Sharkowski is a very primitive bully, whose methods of bullying are more heavily based on his shark roots, than they are on classic school bully archetype forms of bullying, like wedgies, wet willies, etc. Bull viciously rips smaller kids apart and eats them like prey, tears apart school property that gets in his way, does things that would kill someone in real life, and is overall, just plain uncivil.
  • Big Little Brother: His older sister is much smaller he is.
  • Bruiser with a Soft Center: It's been expressed on more than enough occasions, that Bull is a real softie deep down. Most notable moments are when Euripides proves her dominance over him, making him burst into tears. In later seasons, he was consistently more cowardly, emotional, and "pansy like", due to Flanderization.
  • Braces of Orthodontic Overkill: He actually hates his braces, since they only make his evil smile all the more ugly. Yes, apparently Bull, doesn't like his "threatening and scary look". The fact that he acts the way he looks is just him going along with his appearance that can't change.
  • The Bully: The most notoriously feared bully at CDMS.
  • Bully and Wimp Pairing: With Henry.
  • Cain and Abel: The Abel to Euripides' Cain.
  • Catchphrase: "You're dead, Lyon!" (from time to time, it's replaced with someone else's name)
  • Characterization Marches On: Adam seemed to have no problem becoming his friend in "Lyon of the Party".
  • Corrupt Politician: When running for class president in "Political Animals".
  • Equal-Opportunity Evil: Bullies everyone, regardless of size, species, gender, predatory status, and doesn't even show mercy toward teachers.
  • Eternally Pearly-White Teeth: Minus the "Eternal" part, in the episode "Hygiene Hijinks".
  • Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: He was the dedicated #1 Grandson of his grandmother in "Bullroar".
  • Flaw Exploitation: Mentioning his older sister, Euripides.
  • For the Evulz: Generally, Bull acts like a bully to keep himself from being bullied. However, outside of school, he'll even beat up and abuse people without any reason or justification.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: Choleric.
  • Friendly Enemy: From time to time, he's this with Adam and Jake.
  • Gang of Bullies: Often accompanied by his two Mooks, Brandon Capybara and Harry Bat.
  • Given Name Reveal: In "Hygiene Hijinks", he admitted to his first name being "Virgil".
  • Jerk Jock: Bull's a Mad Cow and a bully. His story checks out.
  • Jerkass: Everyone in the school hates and fears him.
  • Kick the Dog: When Bull gets pissed off, he often adds a bit more unnecessary cruelty to his outbursts, like beating up a small kid or breaking someone's important belongings, just for dramatic effect.
  • Megalodon: That's Bull, alright.
  • Mobile Fishbowl: Wears a special headset over his gills to breathe while on dry land.
  • More Teeth than the Osmond Family: As a shark, he has approximately 50 teeth, spanning 3 or more rows. As soon as his braces, straightened them out, another row grew in, being just as hideous as the last.
  • Obviously Evil: Due to him being a giant snark, with sharp fangs that are visible, even when his mouth is closed, a static expression with angry eyebrows, and a threatening T-shirt, it's impossible for him not to be a villain of some kind.
  • One-Man Army: Can clear out a hallway, using only his fins and fangs.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: He's mostly called "Bull"
  • President Evil: "Political Animals".
  • Scary Teeth: Bull is disgusted by his own sharp and crooked teeth.
  • Seldom-Seen Species: A bull shark.
  • Shown Their Work: Bull sharks are known to be a highly aggressive shark species and more dangerous to humans than even great whites, due to high levels of testosterone in their bodies. It's no wonder why they chose one to play the school bully.
  • Threatening Shark: Obviously.
  • Verbal Tic: Takes a deep breath between his words every once in a while.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Has no problem with inflicting physical violence on Ingrid, Lupe, or other female students at CDMS.

    Henry's Mom: Texas sure looked different in the brochures.
  • Blind Without 'Em: Can't see without his glasses.

  • Enemy Mine: Everyone else in the school turned against each other in "Oh, Henry!", when trying to make Henry happy, but when Henry said he liked the negative attention they gave him before, they stopped fighting and then focused all their anger on beating the living crap out of him.
  • Even Nerds Have Standards: Will do anything to humiliate himself, except for ask for directions, as it would "demean his animalhood".
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: Sanguine.
  • Good Feels Good: Despite the physical pain it puts him through, Henry feels very happy and at peace, with doing good for others.
  • Harmless Villain: In "Making the Grade", he turned to the dark side and caused no harm.

    Miss Chameleon: Jungle Guy.
    Henry: Jungle Guy. You, ... line?
    Miss Chameleon: Next!
    Henry: Next! ... Line?
    • Adam and Jake were both actually qualified for the part, but since they fought with each other and got themselves in trouble, before the night of the big show, Henry got the part, and of course, sucked at it.
  • Intrepid Reporter: He works for the CDMS news channel. In "Law and Odor", he stopped at nothing to get all the dirt on the corruption in the hall monitor union.

  • Nerd Glasses: Wouldn't be complete without them.
  • Nerdy Inhaler: Needs an inhaler.

  • Playing Possum: A brief shot in "Animal School Musical", featured Henry laying down on the street, while a truck approached him.
  • Put Me In, Coach!: In "Lyon of Scrimmage", he was benched until the final play of the last game, which of course, helped win the game.
  • Small, Annoying Creature: He can really be obnoxious to some people.
  • The Pollyanna: No matter how much people torture and abuse him, he always goes about his day with a smile on his face and skip in his step.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Loves playing in traffic.
  • Too Kinky to Torture: He seems to like everyone treating him like crap.

As a Whole

  • Bears Are Bad News: The very utterance of their name, makes everyone cringe in fear and hatred.
  • Brainy Brunette: Every member, except Nestor has the same brown hairstyle.
  • The Dreaded: As noted in one episode, it's not recommended that one barrows from the Spiffies because they tend to ask for favors in return. Likewise, the other students hate the idea of being in a class with them.
  • Coordinated Clothes: Nerdy glasses, white buttoned shirt with pens in the pocket, and neatly combed brown hair.
  • Five-Man Band: Only every member is the smart guy.
  • For Science!: Their motives for the nerdy things they do.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: Sanguine.
  • Gag Nose: Every time they snort, (which they do a lot), we get to see a bottlenose, a snout, a trunk, a tentacle suction, and a beak in action, which makes it funnier than seeing this coming from a regular human or even animal noses.
  • Given Name Reveal: The first and last names of every individual member was revealed in "Lame Brain".
  • Hive Mind: Act like this sometimes.
  • Nerd Glasses: The entire gang wears this.
  • Plot Allergy: In "That Darn Platypus", everyone (except Phineas) was allergic to fruit.

Phineas Porpoise

Voiced by: Phil Lamarr
The condescending, know-it-all leader of The Spiffies with an over inflated ego and Level 57 Armor in Prisons and Lizards.
  • Accent Upon The Wrong Syllable: Always says pronounces Adam's name as "A-DUMB", so that he can mock his stupidity.
  • The Bully: He's a rare example of a nerd being one of these, being an Insufferable Genius who lords his intelligence over everyone, especially Adam.
  • Catchphrase : In "Shark Fin Soupy", it was "How Cliche."
  • Extraverted Nerd: Doesn't seem to care about being humiliated.
  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul: Phineas is considered the most unnecessarily cold hearted member of the team, having gone out of his way to ruin the lives of Adam and Jake. Examples include when Phineas tried to win the last Princess Ballerina Snowglobe in stock, just because he knew Adam would want it or when he let him borrow a pencil, just so he could ask him to do dark and criminal favors, just to do his bidding.
  • Friendly, Playful Dolphin: Subverted. Phineas is fiendish to anyone who's not Mr. Blowhole or another Spiffy, and has no time to featherbed with such childish nonsense.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: In "Pants in Space", he invented a bunch of giant, fully functional space-travel-related machines without a sweat.
  • Her Code Name Was "Mary Sue": Phineas has fantasies of himself, being a brave and valiant medieval knight, who defeats dragons and saves the lives of princesses. His code name is "Sir Chancy of Glendale".
  • Heroic Dolphin: As mentioned before, he's this in his fantasies, only a bit more of an anthropomorphic variation, with his heroism being in an on land flesh and bones environment, instead of underwater.
  • Hollywood Nerd: For an anthropomorphic dolphin, he doesn't look too shabby.
  • Insufferable Genius: Phineas has quite the large opinion of his intellect.
  • Knight in Shining Armor: Often cosplays at this, having a fascination for medieval, renaissance stuff. In his head, he's the brave and heroic leader of a team of knights, known as "The Knights of the Multiplication Table".
  • The Leader: Phineas is this of his fellow nerds: a pig, an elephant, a squid, and a parrot.
  • The Middle Ages: Obsessed with this time period. It's related to virtually every one of his tabletop games and cosplay characters.
  • Nonindicative Name: Though Phineas Dolphin doesn't quite have the same roll off the tongue.
  • Sapient Cetaceans: He is a dolphin, after all.
  • Shameless Self-Promoter: The worst of the bunch.
  • Shown Their Work: Real bottlenose dolphins are famous for their intelligence and infamous for having many less than amiable behaviors. Hence, Phineas combines those two traits and becomes a nerdy version of the bully.
  • Sickly Neurotic Geek: Talks like this.
  • Smart Ball: Seems to know pretty much everything. So long as it's about Prisons and Lizards, that is.
  • Techno Wizard: Phineas is the leader, while the others are his Mooks.

Marvin Hammy

Voiced by: Tom Kenny
The sweaty, pizza-faced pig, who's second in command on the team.

Aloysius Elephant

Voiced by: Grey Delisle
A wimpy, asthmatic elephant with nasal congestion. Being the least frail of the bunch, he provides "the muscle".

  • Techno Wizard: In "Carny Crazy", he did the technology work of the group, setting the coordinates of Phineas' device, to the perfect positions for throwing baseballs as bottles to knock them down.
  • Tentacle Rope: In this case, his trunk. He used this to kidnap Adam in "Making the Grade".

Daniel Calamari

Voiced by: Rick Gomez
A scientific, brainy squid, who's means transportation is being pushed around in a mobile fish tank.
  • Butt-Monkey: His being in a fish tank, makes him prone to tipping over and spilling.
  • Children Are a Waste: His quickness to motion sickness keeps his parents from ever going on vacations, knowing they can't take their son on a boat, plane, or excessively long car trip.
  • Cthulhumanoid: Technically qualifies, though he's not nearly as threatening or badass as the usual version of this.
  • Ironic Fear: Despite being an aquatic animal, is afraid of going on boats, because it quickly nauseates him.
  • Mobile Fishbowl: Daniel is pushed around in a cylindrical fish tank on wheels.
  • Plot Allergy: In "Knights of the Multiplication Table", he was unable to steer a boat, due to his extreme sea sickness, forcing Adam to take the wheel for plot reasons. However, this would also mean, he'd be unable to ride the boat too, without getting sick, which he was effortlessly able to do right afterwards.
  • Super Not-Drowning Skills: His species allows him to thrive off of this, though this is also subverted, with him not being able to breathe in regular oxygen.
  • Unfortunate Name: His last name is a kind of food, made from squid that's been caught, chopped up, fried and served for dinner.

Nestor Parrot

  • Ambiguous Disorder: Has a long list of bizarre allergies and rashes.

  • Punny Name: His name being "Nestor" is a pun on him being a bird, a species which is known for building nests.
  • The Runt at the End: Very rarely, but he's sort of the odd one out. One thing that sets him apart from The Spiffies, appearance wise, is that he's the only one on the team, who doesn't have neatly combed, shiny brown hair that looks the same as everyone else's.
  • Toon Physics: In "Knights of the Multiplication Table", he randomly split himself in half.
  • Toothy Bird: He's been shown to have teeth on a few occasions.

A clique of three fat, hungry mean-girls. These being a Hippopotamus (Latanya), Sumatran Rhino (Margaret), and a Cape Buffalo (Joanie).

As a Whole

Latanya Hippo

Voiced by: Cree Summer
A fat, egotistical, quick to anger hippopotamus, who'd gladly crush, kill, and destroy anything that comes between herself and a taste of some delicious junk food (even her own friends aren't safe).
  • Berserk Button: Denying her something she wants. Most of the time, it's food, but she's flipped her shit over a magic wish from David Copprtrout in "The Magic Fish", causing her to brutally abuse her friends.
  • Can't Hold His Liquor: Can't control herself around food.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: If she gets angered or even excited, she starts raging like a psycho and causing destruction everywhere.

  • The Leader: Latanya takes charge of the group.
  • No Indoor Voice: When she gets mad, she emulates this rambunctious demon voice and goes completely nuts.

  • Shown Their Work: Hippopotamuses are extremely aggressive and territorial, to the point they're labeled the most dangerous animal in Africa.

Margaret Rhino

Voiced by: Grey Delisle
The beta-bitch of the posse, though arguably the most tolerable of the group. She's the kindest to Adam, although this respectful behavior allows the other two to upstage and manipulate her.
  • 15 Minutes of Fame: In "I Fear Pretties", when Adam accidentally spread false rumors about her horn being a priceless, rare gem.
  • Anti-Villain: May have been kind of a crazy obsessed lover girl to Adam, in her defining episode, but she was really just doing this cuz Adam was her first boyfriend, and she was both excited and anxious about messing things up, so she didn't know how annoying she was being.
  • Big Fun: The most fun loving of the group.
  • Establishing Character Moment: The episode "I Fear Pretties" focuses on her.
  • The Fashionista: Loves how pretty her horn looks.
  • Gag Nose: Her horn.
  • It's All About Me: Though this title mainly goes to group leader, Latanya, she temporarily became this in "I Fear Pretties", when she though her horn was a priceless object, that make her some kind of animal novelty. In fact, she even saw herself as worthy of taking Latanya's place as the leader of the group.
  • Nice Girl: Though it's not saying much, she's the nicest of the group, which following the "Eat or be Eaten" rules of Charles Darwin Middle School, only makes her the butt monkey.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: According to a gag in "Meet the Spidermonkeys", Margaret is secretly very intelligent.

  • Rhino Rampage: Can happen with Margaret, though she's not exactly the angry one of the group.
  • Seldom-Seen Species: She's a Sumatran rhino, as revealed in "I Fear Pretties".

Joanna "Joannie" Ox

Voiced by: Nika Futterman
A braindead, blonde-haired bimbo, who talks with a valley girl accent. Her stupidity outweighs her own body weight, but not by much.

    James Ant 
Voiced by: Rick Gomez
A macho red ant, who seems to have no trouble, humiliating himself. He's smallest student at Charles Darwin Middle School.
  • Casanova Wannabe: Acts like a real hunky ladies man, but can't get a girlfriend.
  • Extreme Doormat: Allows himself to be literally stepped on and treated as such by just about everyone.
  • Farm Boy: He was this in "My Science Project", working on an Ant Farm.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Doesn't seem to win the affection of his only friend, Henry. Probably because he can't even get his first name right.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: Despite his expressive and talkative personality, he comes across as annoying to everyone he meets and has little to no friends. Even his lame, nerdy friends don't like him.
  • Kid-anova: Although his attempts at winning over the women almost always fall flat.
  • Nice Guy: No matter how many times he's crushed or stepped on, he seems to hold no anger toward anyone at the school.
  • Height Angst: Averted, as he seems to have no trouble with being smaller than a bean.
  • The Social Expert: He's got all the deets on every other student at the school, from their motives, to their personalities, and so on.
  • Solar-Powered Magnifying Glass: Managed to burn himself, by inventing a solar powered tractor for himself, which tragically backfired.
  • Strong Ants: Subverts this.

  • Tiny Schoolboy: Taken to extremes.

    Dickie Sugarjumper 
Voiced by: Tom Kenny

A sugar glider and the school jokester.
  • Backstory Horror: In "That Darn Platypus", his permanent record implied that before coming to CDMS, he actually had a horrifying, past. Mrs. Warthog was terrified by what she saw and urged Principal Pixiefrog not to look.
  • Camp Straight: A flamboyant, weakling, concerned about his fashion, and is the only guy on the cheerleading team, but nope, he likes girls.
  • Catchphrase: "Hello, How's Your Trousers?"
  • The Cheerleader: Stupidly, yes.
  • Dark Secret: Had a few in "That Darn Platypus". We never found out what it was, which makes it even darker.
  • Funny Foreigner: He's the school's funny Australian kid.
  • Keet: Especially in "Cheer Pressure".
  • Nonindicative Name: Lampshaded in "That Darn Platypus" and "The Ivy League", where Principal Pixiefrog and Mrs. Warthog would discuss the fact that Dickie is actually a sugarglider. There's no such this as a sugarjumper.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Dickie is the only male cheerleader at the school.
  • Seldom-Seen Species: How many other sugarglider cartoon characters can you think of off the top of your head?
  • Stock British Phrases: Uses quite a few of these.

    Deidre Koala 
Voiced by: Creator/Grey Delisle

  • Ambiguous Disorder: Lists off a bunch of diseases and allergies, some real, some made up, when talking to Adam.
  • Beautiful All Along: At the end of "She's Koala That", she's given a makeover and is then respected for her exterior beauty.
  • Friendless Background: She is notoriously hated, around the school, for being ugly, disgusting, and annoying.
  • Granola Girl: Deidre is on a strict all-eucalyptus diet.
  • Hypochondria: All she can ever talk about is germs and how they can affect her.
  • Motor Mouth: A very slow version of this trope. She'll tediously drone on about her diseased rashes and sickness related functions in great details to anyone who asks.
  • No Sense of Personal Space: Clinged on to Adam's back like a koala would on a tree.
  • Sickly Neurotic Geek: She wears glasses, has a stuffy nose, usually sniffs with a snot sound effect during, she has braces, she has an endless list of allergies/diseases/disorders, uses an inhaler, drinks only a specific type of really disgusting eucalyptus juice, acts like a total neat freak, and has absolutely no friends.

    Corey Vulture 
Voiced by: Tom Kenny

A vulture and the dark, depressing, goth kid.
  • The Cynic: Corey is callous, nihilistic, and has a negative point of view on everything. He really only cares about eating Jerky and loving his girlfriend ... the latter, being used loosely.
  • Blind Obedience: Does everything Lupe tells him. Doesn't matter what. Doesn't matter why. All he knows is if he does what she says, then he won't get in trouble.
  • The Eeyore: Never really has a happy moment.
  • Goth: Perfectly fitting, because he's a vulture.
  • Henpecked Husband: In his relationship with Lupe.

    Donna Dorsal 
Voiced by: Grey Delisle

A female dolphin and the bitchy and snobbish captain of the CDMS Jungle Squad.
  • Alpha Bitch: She can be a real stinker at times.
  • Beauty Is Bad: It's tricky to distinguish portrayals of "beauty" and "ugly", since the cast is 90% comprised of animals, but Donna seems to be the kind of girl, that if she was human, would be the so called "pretty girl" at Charles Darwin Middle School.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Acts nice in front of some people, but the second they leave, the talks trash about them.
  • The Cheerleader: She's the captain of the school cheerleading squad.
  • Make Way for the Princess: Needs the hallway to be cleared out like a fashion show runway, whenever she gets a new outfit.
  • Nice Character, Mean Actor: When she's out on the field, performing for her audience, she's a happy, peppy, run of the mill cheerleader, with enough cheer to feed an army of manically depressed soldiers. However, the second she's out of the audience's sight, she shows off her true colors as a rude, unpleasant, hateful alpha-bitch.
  • Shown Their Work: Bottlenose dolphins are actually quite nasty in contrast to their "cheerful and happy-go-lucky" reputation.
  • Two-Faced Aside: Does a lot of this.


School Staff

    Principal Poncherello Pegone Pixiefrog

The pint-sized African Bullfrog head of Charles Darwin Middle School.
  • Alliterative Name: Principal Poncherello Pegone Pixiefrog.
  • Animorphism: Inverted in "The Frog Principal", when Mrs. Warthog kissed him and turned him into a prince.
  • Anything but That!: Lawyers.
  • Aside Comment: Gets himself into trouble with a few of these.
    Mrs. Warthog: Fine, but you're paying me double. [walks away]
    Pixiefrog: [murmuring smugly] And I still save money.
    Mrs. Warthog: [yelling offscreen] MAKE THAT TRIPLE!
    Pixiefrog: Aw, shucks!
  • Bad Date: His singularity comes partially from all of his dates going disastrously for him.
  • Berserk Button: The threat of getting sued or losing precious money.
  • Big Word Shout: Screams "STOOOOOOP!" on occasion, when the hallways are in turmoil.
  • Bowties Are Cool: His red bowtie is grand to him. He even complimented Teddy Truman in the episode "Talking Teddy" on his bowtie, and they both basked in their greatness for having bowties.
  • Brutal Honesty: Has the tendency to crush his students dreams, by telling them unfortunate, but likely outcomes of their futures. In "I Got a New Aptitude", he told Jake that he'd grow up to be a zoo animal, even though he wanted to be an underwear model.
    • Also, in "A Whole Zoo World", he went on a whole spiel about Adam's future, But Adam disproved him.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Although not very bright, he has been shown to handle crisis quite well.
  • Butt-Monkey: Some episodes can be like this for him.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: Has a license for what he does and always finds some kind of way around the law, whenever he does something unethical.
  • Catch-Phrase: "Poppycockadoodle" is his most prominent one. He also says "LYOOOOON!" and "Oh, poopy.", though the latter is kind of used by everybody.
  • Cold Turkeys Are Everywhere: He's absolutely powerless without Mrs. Warthog, filing papers for him, seen in "Glazed and Confused" and "Pride and Pixiefrog".
  • The Comically Serious: Takes everything seriously, but nobody takes him seriously.
  • Continuity Drift: In "Up All Night" and "Leaf of Absence", it was shown that he lives on a lily pad in the middle of a swampy lake. However, in "A Whole Zoo World", it was shown that he lives in a Zoo Aquarium exhibit. Which one is it frog?
    • Also, in "Amazon Kevin", he said that he doesn't own a TV, yet his lily pad house had one in "Leaf of Absence".
    • It can easily be explained that he moved during the year and that he bought a TV.
  • Control Freak: Can be very dominating over CDMS at times.
  • Cool Teacher: Tried performing a hip rap number on the importance of school fundraisers, in "Grub Drive".
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: Makes drastic changes to the school, no matter how ridiculous and dangerous, just to make some extra pocket cash.
  • Dean Bitterman: Averted. Though on one occasion he threaten Adam to get Henry to stay in the schoolnote  or else would send him to Siberia, though later he admit he was bluffing.
  • Dramatic Drop: It was a running gag for him to keep dropping coffee cups in "The Ivy League", every time he heard something even remotely shocking. This would eventually spread to the rest of the characters in the show as well.
  • Embarrassing Old Photo: There's a high school yearbook photo of him, dressed up in Elvis attire and disco dancing. Jake uncovered this and showed it to Adam in "Bad News Bear".

  • Go-Karting with Bowser: Often makes a slight friendly bond with Adam and Jake.
  • Greed: It's all about money for this guy.
  • Hollywood Dateless: It was implied that he's been single for quite a while in "The Frog Principal", but in "Mandrill of the House", we can see, that not too long before the events of the series, (at the very least, just a year prior), he was dating Windsor's mother, Margie Gorilla. Though, if anything, this can be passed off as a Continuity Drift.
  • In-Series Nickname: "PF".
  • Inappropriate Role Model: Gives Adam bad advice, misleads the students of CDMS as a whole with false information, and often exhibits inappropriate behavior that's in direct violation of not just the law, but also of his own rules.
  • The Kirk: To Mrs. Warthog's Spock.
  • Likable Villain: Such a friendly guy, it's hard for Adam not to forget, he's out to get him.
  • Mandatory Line: Showed up and talked in "Butt of the Jake", simply for the sake of showing up and talking.
  • Martial Pacifist: Kicks butt and goes full on ninja-mode, but still follows the rules.
  • Mean Boss: If you consider principals bosses, he's this to Adam. Two episodes have even lampshaded his constant abuse toward him, by having him get sent to his office for literally no reason.
    Pixiefrog: Will Jake Spidermonkey please report to the principal's office? Oh, what the hay. Adam, you get in here too.
  • Mister Big: Underwhelming in size, yet holds the entire school under his thumb.
  • Mr. Exposition: A lot of scenes take place in his office, where he goes through drawn-out explanations, of the episode's premise.
  • Momma's Boy: His mother could sense if he'd been kissing girls, from miles away in "The Frog Principal".
  • Mysterious Middle Initial: In "Pride and Pixiefrog", his middle initial was given as "W", but it was never explained what this stood for.
  • The Napoleon: He's a tiny frog that's in charge of the whole school.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: Principal Pixiefrog is said to be based off of some kind of comedian. Some say he's a parody on Mr. Bean, due to their similar attire.
  • Non-Giving-Up School Guy: In "Jake's Day Off", he put himself through Hell, just trying to put a stop to Adam and Jake's shenanigans.
  • Nostril Shot: Parodied in his The Outsiders movie audition tape.
  • Not a Morning Person: In "The Morning Zoo", he had a daily routine, where he'd rummage into the office, throw his hat in Mrs. Warthog's face, and give a completely disrespectful, apathetic announcement.
    • To be fair, in "Where in the World are Adam's Parents", he revealed that every day, he started work at 3am.
  • Odd Friendship: Has grown acquainted to Adam Lyon and even Jake.
  • Only in It for the Money: The only reason he's a principal.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: He once beat a rhinoceros in a wrestling match.
  • Pro Wrestling Is Real: Boy was it ever, when he did it with Mr. Hornbill in "Two Tons of Fun". He must have kept this in mind, explaining his excitement, when acting as the announcer for the battle between Bull Sharkowski and Soupy Baskington in "Shark Fin Soupy".
  • Professional Gambler: Through his years, learning the ins and outs of haggling your hens, he knows all about keeping his own money and suckering others out of it.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: In "Leaf of Absence" he bought a plastic Annabella doll on a shopping network.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: When the entire student body (even Adam) turns on Slips because they don't understand that he's shedding and thought he had a disease, Pixiefrog clears up the misunderstanding by having them watch a documentary on shedding.
  • Running Gag: His car seems to be the inanimate object butt monkey of his life, constantly being destroyed, broken apart, deconstructed, etc. throughout the series.
    Adam: Where did you get those tires from, anyway?
    Bull: None of your business, that's where!
    (Whip pan to Principal Pixiefrog's car on cinderblocks)
    Pixiefrog: Aw, man. Not again.
  • Screw the Money, I Have Rules!: Subverted beyond repair.
  • Seldom-Seen Species: An African bullfrog.
  • The Short Guy with Glasses: Principal Pixiefrog is very short and he wears glasses.
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: To Jake.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: And small body.
  • Tiny Guy, Huge Girl: With Mrs. Warthog.
  • Title Drop: Bet Mrs. Warthog a dollar, he could work the title of the episode into "The Citronella Solution".
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Well,...lawyers actually. A Running Gag is him trembling or changing his mind when the idea lawsuits are brought up.

    Mrs. Geraldine Shannon Warthog 
Voiced by: Grey DeLisle

Principal Pixiefrog's secretary.
  • Animal Stereotypes: As a pig, she's another grisly, filthy, not-so-pretty looking swine. The hog's also covered in warts of all things.
  • Anything but That!: Doing actual work.
  • Apathetic Teacher: Or secretary in this case.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: In later seasons, it was blatantly shown in seldom that she had a crush on Principal Pixiefrog.
  • Big Guy, Little Guy: The big guy to Principal Pixiefrog's little guy.
  • The Bore: She is a dried up, scrawny old lady, who has nothing interesting going on, and rarely anything of substance to say, yet, she talks quite a lot, but nobody's listening. Quite literally with her as well, given that she is a hog.
  • Broken Bird: Completely dead inside.
  • The Comically Serious: Carries the exact same stoic expression and bored voice, even when she claims that she's having fun.
    Pixiefrog: Lola Llama's Locker. My, that's fun to say. Try it, Warthog.
    Mrs. Warthog: Lola Llama's Locker ... You're right. It is fun.
  • Communications Officer: Principal Pixiefrog's phone receptionist.
  • Cool People Rebel Against Authority: Maybe not that first word, but she has no respect for Principal Pixiefrog, she tunes him out, disobeys him, and only does what she's told when she feels like it, and that, as you may have guess, isn't often.
  • Damsel in Distress: Played straight in "Knights of the Multiplication Table".
  • Deadpan Snarker: To Principal Pixiefrog at times, though she's sometimes on the other end of that, and even more so, just as stupid as he is.
  • Fan Disservice: Her recurring "tasteful photos", of her in a bikini, she puts on the internet.
  • Flat Joy: Still as dreary and monotonous as always, even when she's on top of the world.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: Melancholic.
  • Gonk: Hideous and repulsive to the absolute extreme.
  • Gross-Up Close-Up: Given her appearance and personality, it makes sense that she'd have a lot of these jokes about herself.
  • Interspecies Romance: Her crush on Principal Pixiefrog.
  • Human Hammer-Throw: She got a job as a "throwing pig" at the Rhinossance Fair's "Toss thy Pig" game.
  • Sassy Secretary: Responsible for most of the jokes around Pixiefrog.
  • Servile Snarker: Makes wise-cracks and clever insults about Pixiefrog's stupidity. She gets away with this, because he can't fire her, due to her being the only one at the school, who knows how to file.
  • The Spock: To Pixiefrog's Kirk.
  • Office Romance: Very subtle and far apart hints that she has a crush on Principal Pixiefrog.
  • Only Sane Man: At times, in comparison to the other faculty.
  • Pig Man: Pig Woman in this case, and an ugly one at that.
  • The Pig Pen: Occasionally, she'll have flies hovering around her head.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: In "Robo Frog 3000", when CDMS is already being overrun by robots, built by the school board, a robot clone of herself breaks into the school and destroys the only thing she has against the school board.
    Mrs. Warthog: Guess this means I should leave. This is me leaving. Goodbye.
  • The Sheriff: In "My Fair Lyon".
  • Take This Job and Shove It: Has done this a number of times. The biggest one was in "Glazed and Confused", when it actually affected people. It turns out, she's the only person in the school, who knew how to file.
    • Jake and Slips (two idiots), knew how to file, as seen in "Bad News Bear" and "Mellow Fellows", respectively, but they were all the way on another island at this point of the episode's plot, conveniently filling in for a plot hole, that the writers likely missed out on.
  • Tomboyish Name: She often shortens "Geraldine" to "Gerry", phonetically pronounced the same as the male given name, "Jerry".
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Chocolate, which she'll devour upon command.
  • Wastebasket Ball: She can be seen playing this in her free time, ... and work time.
  • With Friends Like These...: In "A Very Special Boy", she proved her sheer disrespect for Miss Loon, when she shoved her over, just so that she could get a precious golden tooth.
    Mrs. Warthog: I always put my friends first.
    (enter shiny gold)
    Mrs. Warthog: ONE SIDE, CREATON! (pushes Miss Loon over and jumps on the gold)

    Mr. Cyrus Q. Hornbill 
Voiced by: Maurice LaMarche

A rhinoceros teacher usually seen teaching whatever class is not covered by the other teachers.
  • A Day in the Limelight: "Hornbill and Ted's Bogus Journey"
  • Animorphism: Mr. Thornhill, a human version of him works at Chester Arthur Middle School, as seen in "The Times, They Are Exchangin'". Mr. Thornhill has a big fat nose, emulating his horn, and it also has a bandage on it.
  • Apathetic Teacher: After four seasons, Mr. Hornbill just stopped giving a shit and let his students do whatever they wanted.
  • Berserk Button: Although he's generally the emotionless, apathetic teacher, this button has been pressed many, many, many, MANY times, mostly by Jake.
  • British Teeth: His teeth as kind of all messed up.
  • Butt-Monkey: Mr. Hornbill the butt of almost every slapstick joke that takes place during class.
  • The Comically Serious: In "Yesterday's Funny Monkey", he was the only person who didn't so much as snicker at Jake's talking butt gag.
  • Covered in Mud: Did this to demonstrate to the kids how to hide from predators.
  • Cowardly Lion: His arc in "Two Tons of Fun", but he still failed at his goal.
  • Despair Speech: Goes on tangents about how sad his life is, in the middle of teaching his class.
  • Extreme Doormat: Quite literally to Mrs. Tusk, when she drove over him in her car.
    Mr. Hornbill: On the road of Mrs. Tusk's life, I am but a minor speed bump.
  • Flaw Exploitation: Mr. Hornbill ambushed Bull, by mentioning his older sister, Euripides.
  • Gag Nose: His horn.
  • Gentle Giant: He's a rhino who's a good guy.
  • Horn Attack: But in his case, he's more of the "Horn Attacked", as he's often getting his horn hurt. Principal Pixiefrog attacked it in "Two Tons of Fun" and Ted Oxpecker landed on it and wouldn't leave in "Hornbill & Ted's Bogus Journey".
  • Interspecies Romance: His crush on Mrs. Tusk.
  • Must Have Caffeine: In "Fresh Brewed", he goes completely nuts when he doesn't have his daily cup of coffee.
  • Mysterious Middle Initial: It's never learned what "Q" stands for.
  • Non-Indicative Name: Hornbills are a group of birds found in Asia, but he's actually a rhinoceros.
  • Office Romance: He has a shameful crush on co-worker, Mrs. Tusk.
  • Pro Wrestling Episode: The star of My Gym Partner's a Monkey's "Two Tons of Fun".
  • Rhino Rampage: A personified example, whenever his berserk button is pressed.
  • Seldom-Seen Species: Given he has only one horn, he might be either a Javan rhino or a Indian rhino.
  • Stern Teacher: Rarely happy with his students and has absolutely no time for Jake's BS.
  • The Stoic: How he acts, while teaching.
  • Wimp Fight: Wrestled with Principal Pixiefrog in "Two Tons of Fun" and he still lost.
  • You Wouldn't Like Me When I'm Angry: Becomes an absolute disgrace, when he doesn't have his coffee.

    Mr. Maurice Bob Mandrill 
Voiced by: Maurice LaMarche

The school counselor.
  • 555: His phone number, as seen in "That Darn Platypus".
  • Cool Old Guy: Turned out to be one in "Mandrill of the House", when he allowed not only Windsor, but Adam, Jake, and Slips to skip school and go to a Rhino-sance festival.
  • Eccentric Mentor: In this case, an emotional mentor.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: Phlegmatic.
  • Freudian Couch: Encourages patients to sit like that. It helps them vent better.
  • Funk: Got funky, when letting his hair out at the end of "Mellow Fellows".
  • Funny Afro: When he lets his hair loose, he's got a comically, over-sized fro.
  • Higher Understanding Through Drugs: Seems like the way he comes up with his goofy solutions to problems.
  • Hippie Counselor: He's the school's psychologist and music teacher.
  • The McCoy: Whenever added to the Warthog-Pixiefrog dynamic.
  • Medieval Ballads: Sang and played the loot in "Knights of the Multiplication Table". It drove King Pixiefrog crazy.
  • Music of the 1960s: Either this or Zen music play as his background music.
    Chimichuri, Chimichuri, Chimichuri, Sauce! West Missouri, Baby Surrey, Danza is the Boss!
  • New-Age Retro Hippie: Fulfills this trope even more, when he's outside of school.
  • Non-Giving-Up School Guy: It's impossible, so don't even try. With this guys glass half full, new age retro hippie outlook on the universe, he's always going to see some kind of light at the end of even the darkest and most miserable tunnels out there.
  • Percussive Therapy: At their very worst, he prescribes this to patients.
  • Phony Degree: It's learned in "Mandrill of the House", that he was never a certified guidance councilor. Most likely, he was chosen for the job because the penny-pinching Pixiefrog knew he'd be cheaper than a successful college graduate.
  • Rage Breaking Point: Being the chill, laid-back kind of guy he is, it took the entirety of "Mellow Fellows" to him to finally snap and hit a 60's style freak out.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Wore a pink ballerina suit in the episodes "My Feral Lyon" and "Animal School Musical".
  • Ripped from the Phone Book: Did this to show everyone, his phone number in "That Darn Platypus".
  • Seldom-Seen Species: Try to think of another cartoon mandrill besides Rafiki.
  • The Shrink: Mr. Mandrill's role in a few episodes.
  • Teacher/Parent Romance: Him and Margie.
  • There Are No Therapists: Given that this is listed as a "60's" trope, the generation he comes from, it's possible his reasons for being a school guidance councilor are born of society lacking such an advent, back when he was young.

    Miss Chameleon 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tvtropes_miss_chameleon.png
Voiced by: Nika Futterman

The overly-dramatic drama teacher, who loves her job a bit too much.
  • Attention Whore: Her living in emulating actors either on camera or in front of large audiences, mixed with her stand-alone melodrama, makes her a perfect example.
  • Broken Bird: She's one of the more passionate teachers, but that's just it. Her dramatic behavior, involving depression, anger, suffering, etc. is more than just acting, as she draws this from her real-life misfortunes and sorrows.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Can get a bit too dramatic offstage.
    Chameleon: I took the career aptitude test once. It said I was destined to be a big star. Now look at me. LOOK AT MEEEEEEEEE! ... Oh wait, ... it said I was crazy.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: She used to be a rising-to-fame commercial actress, who worked alongside the actor, Sir Charleston Festoon. Unfortunately, her disgusting diet of eating bugs made others uncomfortable around her, and she was kicked out of the acting business and had to take up being a lowly teacher. A dark and troubling event from her past that affects her even to this day.
  • Drama Queen: Obviously.
  • Dramatic Spotlight: Miss Chameleon is usually sitting under a heat lamp, which resembles a spotlight, connecting to her dramatic personality and constant acting like she's on stage.
  • Everyone Has Standards: She's known for taking drama class overboard, by making the acting all to real, but she still draws the line at some point. In "Making the Grade" she loved how students were sleeping, which mirrored one of Shakespeare's plays, but she got sick of it after it had been happening for an entire month. Also, in "Animal School Musical", she got sick of singing constant musical numbers all day, which is something she, as an actor, would normally love. Yet, she still begged for the end of it all, even bargaining to stop teaching acting.
  • Face Your Fears: Faced her fear of heights in "A Mid Semester Life's Dream".
  • Fish Eyes: Her eyes are always looking off in different directions and moving constantly.
  • Hollywood Chameleons: It's actually quite funny how well she fits into the "Hollywood" part of this, given how she's all about acting. This was done perfectly in "A Mid Semester Life's Dream", where she wanted to be a Hollywood star, but first had to learn how to change a bunch of rainbow colors and strange patterns.
    • One might say this could have been a parody on the trope, but it's highly unlikely, since this episode aired in 2008, TV Tropes wasn't as popular back then.
  • Large Ham: Her voice can go eerily high.
  • Mentor's New Hope: Adam was her last hope for a decent actor for a play, before Jake swooped in and ruined everything.
  • Non-Mammalian Hair: Her veil functions as hair, as flashbacks show her with her veil in the shape of a woman's hairstyle.
  • Petite Pride: Very proud of herself, despite being one of the smallest teachers at the school, outranking only Principal Pixiefrog and possibly Miss Loon or Coach Gills out of her bowl.

    Coach Tiffany Gills 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tvtropes_coach_gills.png
Voiced by: Brian Doyle-Murray

A deep-voiced goldfish and the school's gym teacher.
  • Art Evolution: In original concept art, she was a less cartoonish, representation of her species, being an expressionless goldfish with unfocused eyes on both sides of her body and a more fish-like mouth, that only opened and closed without moving it's lips in a more human way. She lacked her bow and supposedly Horace. Originally, she was also intended to have an "aquarium castle" in her fishbowl.
  • Bad Boss: Shows little to no respect for Horace and eagerly puts down her students with personal insults.
  • The Cobbler's Children Have No Shoes: Coach Gills is a gym teacher (and a fish) who can't swim.
  • Did I Just Say That Out Loud?: A running gag with her, throughout "Lie, Cheetah, Steal", was where her embarrassing inner monologues about her love for the Mr. Cheetah, could be heard by everyone around her.
  • Dodgeball Is Hell: And she knows it. She secretly used this to the disadvantage of Ding Bang Panda Bear in "Bad News Bear". Upon hearing how he'd become so notoriously hated and for good reason too, she thought it'd only be doing justice, to let him suffer the pain of being put in a dodgeball team, where everyone was against him.
  • Drill Sergeant Nasty: Her voice is only one octave lower than the hardass hostility of Superintendent Wolverine's all-dreaded screaming.
  • Driven to Suicide: Twice. In "Inoculation Day", she was cornered in the bathroom stall by a monkey-hormone-charged Adam Lyon. Without anywhere to go, immobile, and Horace-less, she had no choice but to flush herself down the toilet. In "Amazon Kevin", she was again terrified by the entry of animal abusing Amazon Kevin, which got her to leap out of the bowl and flop offscreen, where there must have been a really close by toilet, which she flushed herself down.
  • Embarrassing First Name: The name "Tiffany", just doesn't make you wanna straighten up and do push ups, does it?
  • Fish Eyes: Appropriately.
  • Forgot I Couldn't Swim: Even though she's a goldfish, Coach Gills can do nothing more than go short distances and float in place, just above the floor of her fishbowl.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: Choleric.
  • Gym Class Hell: She makes it this sometimes.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: In "The "A" Word" and "The Magic Fish", it was revealed she had no friends and was desperate for a companion.
  • Lady Looks Like a Dude: Both in-universe characters and some of the show's fans have assumed she was male, before knowing enough information about her.
  • Large Ham: She almost always talks in a loud voice.
  • Mistress and Servant Boy: The mistress to Horace's servant boy.
  • Mobile Fishbowl: Teaches from a bowl wheeled around by Vice Coach Horace.
  • The Napoleon: She's a tiny goldfish who is aggressive.
  • Not So Different: In "Le Switcheroo", Adam and Coach Gills had a falling out, claiming that they were being too much for each other to handle. After a classic walk in each other's shoes (or roll in each other's bowls), they learned that both of their lives were a living Hell and started being a little nicer to each other.
  • Oh, Crap!: Coach Gills did a substitute swearing version of this in "Synch or Swim".note  When Jake was hurling down toward the pool with a butt bomb, she said "Oh, Carp".
  • Physical Fitness Punishment: A big user of the classic "Drop and give me 20!" punishment.
  • Sadist Teacher: Sure gets a thrill out of making her students work their tails off.
  • Super Coach: Before the events of "Lyon of Scrimmage", Adam wouldn't care less, in fact, would've hated the idea of being on the school football team. But thanks to Gills' training and encouragement, Adam soon became the proud team quarterback.
  • Tertiary Sexual Characteristics: If it weren't for these, people probably wouldn't know she's a female.
  • Vocal Dissonance: One wouldn't expect a goldfish to have such a deep voice, much less coming from a female.
  • Welcome to My World: Adam got insight to Coach Gills' life and learned how much torture she went through. She has tons of paperwork to sign, which is next to impossible for her species, she gets tons of calls from a bunch of drill sergeant nasties, and of course, has to put up with a bunch of rotten kids every class period.

    Vice Coach Horace Ferret 
Voiced by: Creator/Robert Goulet

Coach Gills' ferret assistant.
  • Beleaguered Assistant: Does about 99% of the work around the gym and gets 0% of the credit, even pushing the mobile fishbowl that Coach Gills sits in around.
  • Butlerspace: If a scene doesn't require Coach Gills to move, Horace will be nowhere in sight.
  • Butt-Monkey: Though not to the extent as other teachers in the show, he sure has seen better days. He's consistently treated like crap by his boss and does nothing to get revenge on her, in "The Magic Fish", he was put down by her, as his only companion, when she said she had no friends, and in "Lie, Cheetah, Steal", he was put into a neckbrace, after being overworked by another gym coach friend of his. While in traction, he also pushed a push pop out of it's socket, making it land on his face.
  • Cock Fight: Ended up being Jake's surprise competition for the heart of Ms. Slender Loris in "Substitute Sweetheart", and effortlessly won.
  • Cute Mute: A cute ferret who doesn't speak.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: Phlegmatic.
  • Heel–Face Turn: In "Glazed and Confused", he put Coach Gills' bowl outside, allowing for birds to attack her. She called him many times to let her back in, but he just stood there and smiled.
  • Hyper-Competent Sidekick: Although, he doesn't have the voice of Coach Gills by any means, he's a lot smarter than her, and his wisdom, is of course, always ignored.
  • Mistress and Servant Boy: The servant boy to Coach Gills' mistress.
  • Perpetual Frowner: His standard facial expression is a seemingly blank stare into space with an emotionless frowning mouth that rarely ever seems to move or change.
  • Satellite Character: To Coach Gills.
  • Silent Snarker: His facial expressions convey snark.
  • Sycophantic Servant: Although he's generally on the top of his game, he did screw with Gillsy in the Christmas special, where he'd keep playing a radio, to make it rhyme with everything she said, even though she asked him time and time again to stop.
    Coach Gills: Don't make me hurt you, Horace.
    • At the end of the episode, he clogged her bowl with a loaf of bread, to silence her voice.
  • The Voiceless: His mail deal is that he never talks, which contrasts greatly, with Coach Gills' constant screaming and endless blabbering. He was suddenly voiced in "Animal School Musical".
    Horace: I don't ever talk, but now I don't have a choice. It's really quite awful cuz I don't like my voice.
    • It should also be noted that the actor they chose to voice him in this one appearance, died before the production was aired. An "In Loving Memory" card was dedicated to him. It's just kind of eerie, to see how the voice actor of the character who never talks was dead, when his speaking episode was aired.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Coach Gills. He is constantly tormented and tossed around by his boss, not doing a thing in response. However, in episodes such as "Glazed and Confused", he was shown to take pleasure in knowing that Coach Gills was being eaten alive by wild crows and just smiled, while he sat back and let it happen.
  • Weasel Mascot: The Ferret Mascot of Coach Gills.

    Mrs. Eugenia Tusk 
Voiced by: Cree Summer

The African-Elephant lunchlady, known for her food being delicious for all the animals who eat it, but disgusting to Adam.
  • All Love Is Unrequited: Does not return Mr. Hornbill's feelings for her, as she is married.
  • Ambiguously Brown: Her accent would imply that she's Jamaican, meaning a human version of her would be dark skinned, right? However, in "The Times, They Are Exchangin'", a human version of her actually did appear, and she was completely Caucasian.
  • Apathetic Teacher: Doesn't really give a shit about serving lunch to kids. Only does it for the money, what little she makes. Especially considering her boss, being the Mr. Krabs of Charles Darwin Middle School.
  • Animal Facial Hair: A rare, but sad, female example for her. She has a thick black hair sticking off of the already horrendous looking mole on her face.
  • Beauty Mark: Subverted. She has a big black mole on her cheek, right where a beauty mark on a hot person would go.
  • Camp Cook: The cafeteria lunchlady variant of this.
  • Catchphrase: "Aw, nuts."
  • Chubby Chef: Granted, she's an elephant, so she's not exactly going to be a Slim Jim.
  • Clown Car: She drives a tiny blue car, that she can barely even fit into. Her ears flop out the side windows and she apparently dismantled the windshield just so her trunk could have some breathing room.
  • Cordon Bleugh Chef: The food she makes, seem to be a mixture of animal foods and human food. For example, one of her most famous dishes is "Wormy Joes", which are basically sloppy joes with worms in them.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: In "Law and Odor", she took part in the corruption of the Hall Monitors, offering them free food if they were to be a little more "attentive" to any problems that may go on near her lunchroom. Also, in "Yesterday's Funny Monkey", she was clearly in it for the money, when she opened up the "Laugheteria", and raked in dough, while Jake performed for an audience. A shot even showed her holding two big bags of money and making villainous laughter, proving herself to be just about as low down as Principal Pixiefrog.
  • Fan Disservice: Dressed as a French Maid in "Uniformity".
  • Fat and Proud: Given that she is in fact an elephant, she doesn't have the need to feel even the slightest bit ashamed of her weight. This was all until "Chew on This", when she stuffed herself to obesity, after guzzling down a ton of fatty food and had to run laps around the school.
  • Fired Teacher: Was inexplicably fired and rehired again, as a side-joke at the beginning and end of "The Notorious Windsor Gorilla".
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: Phlegmatic.
  • Funny Accent: Jamaican.
  • Gag Nose: Her trunk.
  • Gentle Giant: A tall, kind sort.
  • Lethal Chef: A pretty horrible cook. All of her food is near inedible and seems to gross out everyone except for Jake.
    • A small Easter egg was shown in "Animal School Musical", where one of the items on her menu was a carton of milk with "Swill" on the label. This is a reference to the Swill milk scandal, in which cows were fed leftover mash, collected from liquor factories and then milked, while sick, leading to the a genocide in New York in the 1850's. So basically, Mrs. Tusk is serving food that could get her students killed.
  • Love Interest: To Mr. Hornbill (despite the fact she's married).
  • Mystery Meat: Pretty much everything she cooks.
  • Pink Elephants: Literally.
  • Ten Minutes in the Closet: Thanks to Adam and Jake, she got into this situation with Mr. Hornbill.
  • Villainous Glutton: Taken to extremes in "Chew on This". Her most vile moment was denying Adam a corndog, saying they were all out only for her to eat one after he left.
    Mrs. Tusk: Yes, yes. Come to Mama.
  • Wedding Ring Defense: Played with. She's married, but her elephant hands are so big, she can't wear a wedding ring, which allowed Mr. Hornbill to think it was fine to hit on her.

    Miss Loon 
Voiced by: Cree Summer

The art teacher, with no appreciation for fine arts.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Despite being established as the art teacher in various episodes, it was said by Principal Pixiefrog in "The Notorious Windsor Gorilla" that "the school's never had an art class." This could be seen as a simple continuity drift, but it really shows how little they cared about her, if they blatantly forgot about her existence in this episode.
  • The Cobbler's Children Have No Shoes: She dispises any artwork that's actually good. If one of her students were to, for instance, make a perfect recreation of the Mona Lisa, she'd scoff at it for being unoriginal.
  • Demoted to Extra: Originally cast as one of the main/recurring school faculty members, but with every passing season, her prominence became more and more spotty, to the point, where she was never even talked about anymore. Faculty-Centric episodes such as "Robo Frog 3000" and "Glazed and Confused", featured pretty much everyone except for her.
  • Expy: It's said her character is an allusion to Ethel Taylor from On Golden Pond, who's known for her love of loons.
  • Non-Indicative Name: She's actually a blue jay.
  • Seldom-Seen Species: Whether she's a blue jay or a loon, she still counts.
  • Toothy Bird: Averted. And arguably the only bird in the series, with no teeth.
  • With Friends Like These...: In "A Very Special Boy", her friend, Mrs. Warthog showed absolutely no respect for her.

    Nurse Jacqueline Gazelle 
Voiced by: Grey DeLisle

The school nurse.
  • The All-Solving Hammer: Hypodermic needles.
    Adam: I'm allergic to needles.
    Nurse Gazelle: Well, I got nothin'.
  • Back-Alley Doctor: Nurse Gazelle doesn't know what half her doctor equipment even does and usually ends up putting her patients in more pain than they came in with. As a matter of fact, she isn't a certified doctor, or even a certified anything, having dropped out of middle school. She was only hired because Principal Pixiefrog wanted to save a few bucks on a real school nurse, as usual.
  • Back to School: When her middle school dropout story was discovered by Principal Wolverine, she lost her job at CDMS, became a student at CDMS, and work her way back to to getting a job at CDMS again.
  • Blow Gun: Used this to inoculate kids with hypodermic needles in "Inoculation Day".
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Was a bit of an airhead in earlier seasons, but turned into a flat out moron in later seasons.
  • Creepy Physical: In "Chew on This", Nurse Gazelle was seen extracting a rectal thermometer from Adam, when he only came to her because he felt lightheaded.
  • Dumb Blonde: Played with. She mentioned that she's got a brain the size of a peanut in "Inoculation Day" but, otherwise, doesn't seem to be any dumber than any of the other characters.
  • George Jetson Job Security: Got fired, once it turned out she never graduated middle school. If this happened in real life, there's no way she'd be getting her job back again, especially not for the reasons she did. The files, proving her incapability of being the nurse were destroyed in a fire, so her superior decided to let her have her job back, despite there also being no evidence that she was qualified and the fact that he already knew she wasn't.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Ingrid was jealous of her beauty, popularity, and "closeness with Adam" when she became a student in "Lyon's Anatomy".
  • Hot for Student: Has a crush on Adam Lyon. It started in "Poop Scoop", when false news was spread that Adam was in love with every female teacher at CDMS, which sparked her and every other female teacher's interest, making them all surround Adam, wanting to know more. Unlike with other teacher, however, this must have stuck and gone a bit too far, as she admitted to having a crush on him in "Lyon's Anatomy".
  • Idiot Ball: Has about the same I.Q. level as Slips.
    Principal Wolverine: [furious] Ms. Gazelle! Give me one good reason, why I shouldn't revoke you of your career!
    Nurse Gazelle: [unfazed] What's a career?
  • Jerkass Ball: Some fans claim she passed the moral event horizon, when she tried to shave Rufus's hair off for no reason in "The Hyena And The Mighty".
  • Lovable Alpha Bitch: When she became a student in "Lyon's Anatomy", she fell into this archetype. She spread gossip about other students' medical conditions and took subtle shots at Ingrid, because she was after the same man she was. However, as soon as Ingrid confronted her, she suddenly became her friend out of nowhere.
  • Love Makes You Evil: In "Lyon's Anaomy", she became a bit of a bitch, especially to Ingrid, done mainly out of her love for Adam.
  • Mad Doctor: In "The Hyena and the Mighty", she went cuckoo and tried conducting an experiment with shaving all of Rufus' fur off.
  • The Medic: Due to being a school nurse.
  • Naughty Nurse Outfit: Played with in "Lyon's Anatomy".
  • School Nurse: Duh.
  • Swiper, No Swiping!: Put an end to Ingrid's furious hatred for her, just by explaining their differences and offering for them to make up.
  • Wounded Gazelle Gambit: Ironically, if a someone does this, (i.e. faking suck) it'll totally work on her, just like the trope should.
  • You Won't Feel a Thing: This should be her motto.

    Mr. Blowhole 

An Orca whale who is usually seen as the teacher of the nerds. Accompanied by whale noises whenever he talks.
  • Ambiguously Evil: In "The Spiffanos", The Spiffies formed together as a mafia gang, that enforced crime and corruption in the school. Phineas, the leader of the gang, mentioned Mr. Blowhole as the higher-up, which could imply that Mr. Blowhole is the greater scope villain, running a whole network of gangs such as theirs. Of course, this is all just assumption, as Mr. Blowhole never actually appeared in that episode.
  • Apathetic Teacher: Only, when he puts up with anyone, other than The Spiffies.
  • The Big Guy: The biggest faculty member, and likely the largest member of the school, outranking Endugu Elephant's record of the largest student in terms of width.
  • Bigger Bad: If you consider him a Spiffy, he's this to Phineas Porpoise. Phineas may lead his group and be a domineering king of intelligence to a degree, but Mr. Blowhole is basically the crime lord of the group, and much of Phineas' actions are done in favor of his teacher.
  • Broken Bird: Not that this sets him apart from half the other teachers at CDMS, but Mr. Blowhole seems occasionally depressed and overall, unsatisfied with his life. Though, this could mainly just be because of his deep, lazy way of talking. He's actually quite happy with teaching a class full of geniuses, this is, when he's not being interrupted by Jake Spidermonkey.
  • Butt-Monkey: Though it's not one of his overarching traits, it was mentioned via fourth wall joke in "The Spiffanos" that in every previous episode, centered around him, his blowhole has underwent a ton of damage from Adam and Jake's wacky hijinks.
    Jake: (chuckles) Mr. Blowhole's blowhole will never be the same.
  • Color-Coded Patrician: The Spiffies all the same wear thick-rimmed glasses. Mr. Blowhole's glasses are the same style, but they're red instead of black, proving that he really is the Papa Smurf of the pack.
  • Dean Bitterman: Judiciously hates Jake Spidermonkey, and jumps on the chance to punish him, every chance he gets.
  • Gentle Giant: Referred to as this in "Robo Frog 3000".
    Wizard: Hold me, my gentle giant.
  • Heavy Voice: Being, he's a gigantic Orca whale, his voice comes out in a very deep, heavy way.
  • Human Doorstop: Used as a surfboard in "An Inconvenient Goof".
  • Mobile Fishbowl: Mr. Blowhole moves around, by dragging himself around the school in a giant fish tank.
  • Passing Notes in Class: In "The Note", these kinds of antics unfolded in his class, but he was, for the most part, unaware of it.
  • Rage Breaking Point: Rarely happens to the humble guy he is, but Jake managed to push him to this in "Animal Testing", while being obnoxious during the spelling bee.
    Mr. Blowhole: SPELL IT!!!
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: Has a strong, but justified disliking for Jake Spidermonkey. His antics have gotten on his nerves and driven him to madness more than once. Episodes like "Animal Testing", "Jake's Day Off", and "Knights of the Multiplication Table" provide evidence of this.
  • Smart People Wear Glasses: Like The Spiffies, Mr. Blowhole wears the iconic "smart people" glasses. His is the only pair of glasses with a red rim, instead of black, which his students wear, signifying that he is the honorable leader.
  • Space Whale: Whenever he talks, soothing whalesong plays in the background, referencing to this idealism.
  • The Stoic: Rarely shows emotion other than the blandness that comes from his combination of serene tranquility and hyper-focused attention to work.
  • The Stool Pigeon: Ratted out Adam and Jake in "Jake's Day Off". When he saw them riding down the hallway, the son of a bitch made a phone call to Principal Pixiefrog, even though it was none of his business.
  • Unfortunate Names: "Mr. Blowhole", just sounds kind of ... well, stupid to say the least.
    • I'd hate to imagine what the humanized version of him would be named.

    Superintendent (formerly Principal) Wolverine 
Voiced by: Chris Edgerly

The aggressive, loud-mouthed, substitute principal teacher for Principal Pixiefrog.
  • Always Someone Better: In "Pride and Pixiefrog", PF lost his Principal of the Year award, and it was then given to Wolverine.
    • For him, he acts like the big man on campus every time he goes to Charles Darwin Middle School, but is still outranked by the Lagomporphic School Board, who can hire and fire him, whenever they want. Just goes to show that no matter how high on the corporate ladder, nobody in the business industry has complete power.
  • Beware of Vicious Dog: Superintendent Wolverine is just about as nasty as he sounds.
  • Bigger Bad: If you think Principal Pixiefrog is bad ...
    • Let's also not forget to mention, how he's the only teacher capable of overpowering Bull Sharkowski. He even took his underwater headphones from him and nearly killed him.
  • Butt Biter: His go-to threat for people who wrong him is biting them on the buttocks. Though he's never actually been seen doing that.
  • Catchphrase: "DO YOU WANT ME TO BITE YOU ON THE BUTTOCKS!?"
  • Drill Sergeant Nasty: Runs CDMS like a military school.
  • Eyes Always Shut: Always carries two squinted-shut eyes, which are portrayed by two horizontal dashes on his face.
  • Fallen-on-Hard-Times Job: Was reduced to working at a hand-done car wash in "Robo Frog 3000".
  • Fangs Are Evil: Has sharp, pointy fangs.
    • The better to bite people's buttocks with.
  • George Jetson Job Security: He was on the boss' end of this in "Lyon's Anatomy", easily giving Nurse Gazelle her job back, for a completely stupid reason. She got fired in the first place because files proved that she never graduated middle school, but because that evidence was destroyed, he rehired her, apparently forgetting the proof of which he'd already seen.
    • Guess if you're good, the universe will reward you, as Wolverine got his job back after losing in in a later episode.
  • How the Mighty Have Fallen: In "Robo Frog 3000", he lost his illustrious job as the superintendent, to a robot. He probably spent years, busting his ass, and thriving to that point, and his downfall was extremely drastic, with him then having to work at a car wash, which he was also quickly fired from, after being replaced by a robot.
  • Insane Admiral: He can be completely off his gourd at times.
  • Jerkass: The way he treated his students in the hallway was unbelievable. Not only did he nearly kill Bull, but he also yanked the nose ring out of a bull student, which ripped her skin, and told her that jewelry wasn't allowed at CDMS.
  • New Job as the Plot Demands: Was promoted from vice principal to superintendent in "Lyon's Anatomy", so that he could be in a position to fire Nurse Gazelle.
  • No Indoor Voice: Has never been heard, not screaming.
  • Out-of-Character Moment: Although he's a always a cruel, cold-hearted, hardass, his final moment in the episode, was him taking out a Mary Poppins umbrella and floating off with it, like a magical nanny.
  • The Napoleon: Bigger than Principal Pixiefrog, but still has to look up to Adam, when giving him lectures.
  • Workplace-Acquired Abilities: Using the abrasive bossiness he specialized in at his former-at-the-time job, he was able to take down the Robits, and get his job back.

Others

    Kerry Anderson 
Voiced by: Cree Summer
Adam's love interest, best human friend, and former classmate at Chester Arthur Middle School.
  • Action Girlfriend: Showed off her skills in "Glazed and Confused".
  • Almost Kiss: She and Adam have attempted to kiss before, but it's always interrupted either by outside disturbances or one of them pulling back.
  • Ambiguously Brown: Her voice actor is black, making it likely, though compared to other black humans in the show, she looks more Hispanic or Latina.
    • Given how she's an Expy of Abigail from Kids Next Door, it's possible that she was intended to be black.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Wears crop tops even to school.
  • Character Development: In the first seasons, she was mainly just a love interest, who's only role was for Adam to have a crush on her. However, season 4 episodes such as "Glazed and Confused" and "Human Behavior" give us a lot of insight to her life and personality.
  • The Cheerleader: She's part of the Chester Arthur Middle School "Peppy Pep Girls".
  • The Commissioner Gordon: Adam's only connection with the human world.
  • Commitment Issues: In "Glazed and Confused", she was hesitant to kiss Adam, despite being in love with him.
  • Cool-Kid-and-Loser Friendship: Chad often chides her for being friends with Adam.
  • Cyclops: It's been joked by Jake and Principal Pixiefrog, that she's a cyclops, since only one of her eyes is ever shown.
  • Deadpan Snarker: When in a bad mood, or when she realizes that nobody's gunna listen to her, no matter what she says, she can make a few witty comments about the wise guys of the scene.
  • Expy: Kerry has the same VA as Abigail "Numbuh 5", from Kids Next Door, with not many changed between voices. She has a sort-of-but-not-too-much similar appearance, and tends to be reminiscent of her at times.
  • Girl of My Dreams: Adam dreamed about playing paintball with her in "Up All Night".
  • Heroes Want Redheads: She has a crush on Adam.
  • Love Interest: She's one of Adam.
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: In "Glazed and Confused", she led a team, and fought a tribe of cannibalistic islanders, to save Adam.
  • Nice Girl: Acts pretty kind with Adam, even when the animals make things get crazy.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: Her other eye is never seen. So much so, that it turned into a running gag in season 4.
  • Puppy Love: They make an adorable couple, and have great chemistry, but they're 11 years old, so it'll never last.
  • Running Gag: Adam and Kerry almost kissing, but then failing for some reason.
    • In later seasons, it became a recurring joke to mention "one eye".
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Fans assume her name is "Carrie" or "Carey" or various other spellings. Fortunately, for the fanbase, the episode "Up All Night" provides us with (possibly the only instance of) her name's spelling, which is the slightly less popular, "Kerry".
  • Tomboyish Name: When you see her name spelled, you'll notice it's spelled "Kerry", which although it's unisex, is mostly a guy's name.

    Chad 
Voiced by: Tom Kenny
Adam's former school bully from Chester Arthur Middle School.
  • And Then What?: In "Lonely Lyon", he realized there was nothing to do at school, now that Adam was gone and he desperately tried to bring him back into his life again, so he could feel the joy of bullying him again.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: Usually the case, in episodes such as "Supplies Party" and "Docu-Trauma".
  • The Bully: Whenever Bull Sharkowski isn't around.
  • The Bus Came Back: Chad was completely absent throughout all of seasons 3 and most of season 4 (albeit a background cameo in "Human Behavior"), and wouldn't return until the last episode before the series finale, "Lonely Lyon", where he served his most major role.
  • Determinator: In "Lonely Lyon", Chad dressed as a bear and transferred to CDMS, just to continue bullying Adam.
  • Friendly Enemy: Judging by his obsession with Adam in "Lonely Lyon", it wouldn't be a stretch to say that he's developed some kind of affection for bullying him, specifically.
  • The Nondescript: Chad would be considered a very generic, forgettable "bully antagonist" if he were the main villain of the show.

    Jackie 
Voiced by: Tom Kenny
A hideously, Jake-like cheerleader at Chester Arthur Middle School.
  • Alpha Bitch: Basically the Donna Dorsal of Chester Arthur.
  • Bratty Half-Pint: She's just a loud, obnoxious, bossy bitch, who's half the size of everyone else in the school.
  • The Bus Came Back: Made a random reappearance in the series finale.
  • The Cheerleader: Team captain of The Peppy Pep Girls.
  • Gender Flip: The female (and human) version of Jake.
  • Gonky Femme: She's a ugly, hairy, little midget, with superhuman strength and always picks fights. Even her cheerleader dress and ponytail hair look totally unfitting.
  • Jerkass Ball: This was her role in her debut episode.
  • Lady Looks Like a Dude: Looks suspiciously similar to Jake.
  • New Transfer Student: The story behind her comically abrupt debut.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: Subverted. She looked so much like Jake with a wig, dress, accent disguise, that Adam had the right to believe it was just him in costume, which turned out to be false.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Though she was already a complete bitch in earlier seasons, in "A Whole Zoo World", she terrorized the zoo and destroyed zoo property, acting like a barbaric animal, just because she was trying to use a mold machine, but it wasn't working.

    Theodore "Teddy" Truman 
Voiced by: Rick Gomez
Windsor's self-aware ventriloquist dummy/teddy bear, used for comedy performances. Teddy considers himself one with Windsor, an identity he uses as leverage for his "self-deprecating" humor.
  • Alliterative Name: Teddy Truman.
  • Catchphrase: Follows many of his jokes with, "Woo-hoo!"
  • Class Clown: Tells incredibly lame puns in class, which get a bigger laugh than anything Jake's ever done.
  • Demonic Dummy: If the Stinger of his title episode means anything.
  • Organ Autonomy: Teddy Truman seems to have a mind of it's own. When he has comedic argument with Windsor, he'll often hurt him more than Windsor would do to himself in his right mind, even if it's just a joke. This includes physical violence, emotional pain, and overall, just ruining Windsor's life.
  • Pun: Teddy Truman lives off of these.
  • Punny Name: His first name is a pun on the fact that he's a toy, depicting a bear, making him somewhat of a "Teddy Bear".
  • Put on a Bus: Literally. His outro, was the school bus taking him to another school.
  • Real After All: The Stinger of his debut episode, had him move and talk without the use of Windsor.
  • Shout-Out: His name could be a combination of the two presidents, Teddy Roosevelt and Harry Truman.
  • Ventriloquism: Windsor has an unhealthy attachment to Teddy Truman, that takes them beyond the plain of pretend, and into a world, where both of them are people, who've formed a relationship, and have in-depth, emotional conversations with each other.

    Mr. and Mrs. Lyon 
Voiced by: N/A
Adam's unnamed, unseen, unvoiced, unknown mother and father.
  • #1 Dime: Glass doorknobs to Adam's mom in "Shiny Thing".
  • Adults Are Useless: They apparently did absolutely NOTHING when they found out Adam got sent to an school for animals and provided absolutely no support for him throughout the series, with the minor exception of showing up at school in "Where in the World Are Adam's Parents?", in order to disprove rumors that their reasons for absence was because he'd killed them.
  • Collector of the Strange: It was mentioned in "Shiny Thing", that Adam's mom collected glass doorknobs.
  • The Faceless: On their rare occasions they appear, their faces are never shown.
  • The Ghost: Adam's parents and other relatives often mentioned but usually never seen.
  • Invisible Parents: Adam's parents have never been truly shown.
  • Manchild: Mr. Lyon played in the ball pit in "Supplies Party".
    Mr. Lyon: Yay! Woo hoo! Balls! Bally ball balls! Whee! Balls!
  • Mysterious Parent: They were specifically needed to show up at CDMS, or else Adam would be convicted of murder.
  • Parental Abandonment: Adam's parents are present about 20% of his life.
  • Parental Neglect: Almost never a moment, where they've been shown to take care of Adam, except for his mom telling him to stay in bed and skip school, when he had a cold in "Sick Day".
  • Swapped Roles: In "Supplies Party", the dad was never shown doing house work, but Adam mentioned his mom going to work in "Supplies Party".
  • Tertiary Sexual Characteristics: When they "appeared" in "Where in the World Are Adam's Parents?", they were wearing hazmat suits that covered their entire bodies. Adam's mom had visible breast lumps on the front of her suit, which was the only thing, setting her apart from Adam's dad.
  • The Voice: Mrs. Lyon's voice was telling Adam to stay in bed, until he gets better in "Sick Day", and Mr. Lyon was heard cheering in the ball pit at Adam's birthday in "Supplies Party".
    • Adam's grandma's voice was heard, however, we do see her with most of her body out of view (we see her hand pointing).
  • When You Coming Home, Dad?: Adam's parents work so much, they don't arrive home until extremely late at night. Adam has to fix his own dinner and is usually asleep by the time they're home. His mom even missed his birthday, being stuck at work.
  • Useless Bystander Parent: Mr. Lyon was present at his son's birthday, yet did absolutely jack squat, when Adam was being bullied by Chad.
  • Your Mom: Subverted both the "Your" and the "Mom" in "Hygiene Hijinks", when Adam insulted Bull, by telling him "You dress like my dad!", making this a "My Dad" joke, the complete opposite of a "Your Mom" joke.

  • Fantastic Racism: Jake's dad sees humans and sub-human, seeing them as annoying, stupid, and worthless.

  • Innocently Insensitive: Jake's dad insults his wife and son a lot, though he doesn't seem to understand how what he's saying comes across as offensive. Rather, to him, they just sound like regular comments.

    Jake's Mom: [flattered] Me? Oh no, not me.
    Jake's Dad: Yeah, I guess you're right.

  • Dressed to Heal: Wears a blue scrub suit and occasionally a surgical mask.
  • Hospital Hottie: The handsome doctor.

Memorable One-Timers

    Rick Platypus

    Rufus Hyena 
Jake's hyena friend, with a real sense of humor, to say the least.
  • Adorkable
  • Annoying Laugh
  • Break the Cutie: Insulted by Adam, cried several times throughout his episode, terrorized by Nurse Gazelle, threatened by the former at one point
  • Heinous Hyena: Subverted. While he does annoy Adam with his constant laughing, he doesn't do anything malicious.
  • The Hyena: Literally
  • Keet
  • Mood-Swinger: Went from laughing to crying and back again pretty quickly.
  • Ocular Gushers: Does this when he cries.

  • Farm Boy: Wears overalls, has a southern accent, and is overall humble.
  • Gentle Giant: He's the biggest fish in the school, but he wouldn't hurt a minnow.
  • Seldom-Seen Species: Not often a cartoon would feature a filter-feeding shark, let alone a basking shark.
  • Shown Their Work: Basking sharks are the second largest fish in the world, and are known to be harmless filter-feeders (their giant mouths are used to sift through seawater for plankton) not unlike the larger whale shark.

    Larry Raccoon 
A racoon who was expelled from CDMS.

    Possum Girl

The only other human other than Adam. She pretended to be raised by possums, just to get transferred to Adam's school.
  • Cute Mute: Though it's all an act, she pulls it off pretty well.
  • Fangirl: Has developed some sort of fandom for Adam.
  • No Name Given: Not even in the credits.
    • The only time her name was touched upon was when she said her last name couldn't result in a wacky school mixup, like "Lyon" could, so what we do know is that her LAST name has nothing to do with animals.
  • Raised By Animals: That's what her false backstory is.
  • Stalker with a Crush: Her deal with Adam.
  • You Have to Believe Me: Adam was the only one who knew she could talk and function like a normal human, but nobody believed him.

    B.A.A.A. Activists 
(Because All Animals Are Amazing) is a group of animal rights activists, who accused CDMS of animal-on-animal abuse.
  • Animal Wrongs Group: Were against Nurse Gazelle tranquilizing Adam, despite her doing it to save him, and of course save other endangered animals. They apparently did not want to think ahead like this, so they ignored it and kept protesting.
  • Crowd Chant: "Woof and Roar and Oink and Moo! Animals are people too!"
  • Fat Girl: One of the protesters is an extremely large-framed, beefy woman.
  • Fun with Acronyms: "B.A.A.A." is the sound a sheep makes.
  • Girls with Moustaches: One of the protesters has some prominent stubble on her lip.
  • Hypocrite: After they saved the lives of some animals, they went out to get some burgers.
  • Miniature Senior Citizens: One of them is an extremely short old lady.
  • Straw Vegetarian: Subverted. Despite being loony bird, "save da animal" hippies, they have no problem with eating hamburgers, fried chicken, pork byproducts, and other forms of dead animals.
  • Strawman Political: The activists are a parody on stuff like PETA and other animal rights organizations.
  • The Voiceless: Only the leader of the group does any of the talking. However, in their comic book appearance, in "The Last Whooperding", the other two had their speech bubble moments.
  • Waving Signs Around: They wave pickets signs around with their movement's initials and "No Shooting" signs.
