Characters: The Angry Beavers


Titular Duo

Norbert Foster Beaver

Voice Actor: Nick Bakay

The older, more laid-back beaver brother.

Tropes associated with Norb:

  • Aloof Big Brother: At the start of the series, see Flanderization below.
  • Animal Motifs: Horses. Norb whinnies like a horse whenever he bleats in distress, and in one episode, his life-long dream was to be a Lipizzaner Stallion.
  • Berserk Button: He loves his hair, so don't mess it up.
  • Big Brother Bully: Steps into this territory on occasion.
  • Break the Haughty: He gets his moments.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Several episodes show Norbert more willing to sit back and smell the flowers than Daggett, but as some episodes such as "A Dam Too Far" show, he's a very brilliant when he puts his mind to it.
  • Catch Phrase: "Biiiig hug!"
  • Chick Magnet: Apparently as seen in "Beach Beavers A Go-Go," and in "Beaver Fever" being surrounded by fangirls at one point.
  • Cuddle Bug: See Catch Phrase
  • Flanderization: As the series continued, Norb became more self-centered.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: The responsible to Daggett's foolish.
  • Guile Hero: Mostly relies on wit and manipulation for fighting against a foe or Dag.
  • Insufferable Genius: Even when he's wrong, he never admits it. At least on two occasions Daggett stresses the point that Norbert should be sorry but he turns it around and accepts his apology.
  • Jerk Ass: He takes a level in it.
    • Jerk with a Heart of Gold —> Jerk with a Heart of Jerk
      • For example, in "Dag's List", Daggett comes come one day after getting thrashed by random thugs. Norbert promptly gets him an organizing notebook so he'll remember who to get even with next time. The reason? A brotherly prank to get Dag even more thrashed. Thankfully, it backfires by the end of the episode.
  • Large Ham
  • Not so Above It All: A few time in the series, but especially in Muscular Beaver 5, where it's revealed he revels in the opportunity to be Baron Bad Beaver and let out his "evil" side when no one's around (and to "wear my undies on the outey-side.")
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Whenever he's seen wearing clothing, it's almost always in a pinkish color scheme.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Daggett's red.
  • Sphere Eyes
  • Spiky Hair
  • The Fool: Although, there are times when his Karmic Protection fails to activate.
  • The Unfavorite: Dag is apparently liked the best by both their parents (specifically when the two are actually getting along), although they do seem to love Norb equally, Dag gets more attention because of his blase acceptance of his parents quirks. Their mom even sends Norb treats every month to make up for it.
  • Verbal Tic: He tends to mispronounce or overemphasize word syllables.

Daggett Doofus Beaver

Voice Actor: Richard Steven Horvitz

The younger (and angrier) brother.

Tropes associated with Dag:

  • Animal Motifs: While already a beaver, Daggett's design is pretty shark-like, down to his fin like ears and razor sharp teeth. This is alluded to when he chooses a water scooter painted as a shark in "Beach Beavers A Go-Go".
  • Annoying Younger Sibling
  • Berserk Button: It doesn't matter if your a bunch of mind-controlled zombies, he WILL kick your spooty behind-er if you threaten his teddy bear.
  • Big Ol' Unibrow
  • Book Dumb: His main method of turning stuff on or off pretty much consists of hitting it ("Stupid, eh *whack*! Stupid, eh *whack*! Stupid computer *whack*!), yet he can build a remote vest-controlled animatronic robot, as seen in "Long Dag Night." Dag certainly qualifies.
  • Butt Monkey
  • Cargo Ship:invoked He fell in love with a fish Hook.
  • Catch Phrase: "That was nuts!" and, occassionally: "Me?! I.......YOU!!" when Norb blames him for something.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander
  • Flanderization: As the show progressed, Dag's intelligence seemed to do the opposite.
    • In the early episodes Dag's lack of intellect vented out in the form of him being a strutting buffoon who needed to relax more.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: The foolish to Norbert's responsible.
  • Genius Ditz: He has his moments, such as when he cured an incurable disease in "Stinky Toe".
  • Girls Have Cooties: Is grossed out about the prospect of having a girlfriend. This actually becomes a part of the plot in the episode "The Mighty Knothead." Weirdly enough, near the beginning of said episode, Dag seems a little smitten with the raccoons' leader. It's only after she declares he has to be her boyfriend that he freaks.
    • He also fell in love with a Fish Hook though that was portrayed as a girl
  • Good Is Not Nice
  • Good Parents: When he once thought a baby mongoose that had wandered into the dam was his child, Dag showed to actually be a pretty good caregiver. His one downside was blindly letting Norb look after "Gary" for a while, though this gets subverted when Norb is unable to get rid of the baby because he bonds with it.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Many episodes seem to focus on his envy of Norbert when good things happen to the latter. Take the episode "Gift Hoarse", for example, when his jealousy over Norb getting a cooler Arbor Day gift than him drives the rest of the episode.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Like it says above, he's the angrier of the two.
  • Idiot Hero
  • Keet
  • Large Ham
  • Let Me at Him!
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: Generally implied in some episodes, the fact of the matter is that there are some times when Dag's stupidity provides Karmic Protection over Norb's unprovked Jerkass tendencies.
  • Parental Favoritism: Mainly on the rare occasions he and Norbert aren't bitching at each other.
  • Perpetual Frowner: On most of the official artwork at least.
  • Properly Paranoid: In some episodes.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to Norbert's blue.
  • Super Strength: Yes, really. In one episode, his attempt to build a dam over the "Little Meanie" river saw him carry a tree the size of a mountain by himself. In another, he can be seen hauling huge piles of pipes, metal and wood that would ordinarily be too heavy for just one beaver to carry.
  • Unstoppable Rage
  • Too Dumb to Live: Especially in the later episodes.
  • Verbal Tic: An "Eeeh" sort of sound.

Supporting Cast:

Stump

Voice Actor: N/A

A tree stump with a carved-in face, and a close friend of the beavers.

Tropes associated with Stump:

Bing

Voice Actor: Victor Wilson

An extremely annoying, fast-talking chamelecko.

Tropes associated with Bing:

Treeflower

Voice Actor: Cynthia Mann

A once-hippie beaver girl that Norbert fell in love with after meeting at a concert.

Tropes associated with Treeflower:

Barry Bear

Voice Actor: John Garry

Big Bunny

  • I Just Want to Have Friends: He planted the threat letter in "My Bunnyguard" so Norbert and Daggett would hire him and he'd have someone to "bodyguard" and hang out with. When called out on it, he admits this is the reason.

Truckee

Scientist #1 and Pete

Stacy and Chelsea

Voice Actresses: Stacy and Chelsea Schauer

Norb and Dag's younger sisters.

Tropes associated with Stacy and Chelsea:

Laverta Lutz

The "Lady of Lanes" who serves as Dag's pseudo fairy godmother in some episodes. Known for having a very loud cough.

  • Beehive Hairdo: Shaped like a bowling pin.
  • Butt Monkey: She gets beaten up in most of her appearances, culminating in her getting run down on the street in "It's A Spootful Life" and undoing Dag's wish.
  • Fairy Godmother: To Dag.
  • Gonk
  • Literal Genie: In her second appearance, she grants Dag's wish to get the last word in by saying "it ain't over 'till the fat beaver sings," causing Dag to swell up into a morbidly obese beaver who belts out musical insults.
  • Running Gag: Her cough.
  • Satellite Character: She's only appeared in three episodes, all Dag-centric.
  • She Cleans Up Nicely: In "It's A Spootful Life" she'd be rather attractive if Dag was never born.
