Norbert Foster Beaver
Voice Actor: Nick BakayThe 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.
- Big Brother Instinct: He will come to his brother's aid once in a while, such as in "Van-tastic Voyage".
- 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.
- Green-Eyed Monster: The moment something good happens for Dag, Norb's petty side rears its ugly head.
- Guile Hero: Mostly relies on wit and manipulation for fighting against a foe or Dag.
- Manipulative Bastard: At his worst.
- 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. Not to mention he later takes advantage of Dag's new feared reputation in order to get his friends' possessions. Thankfully, it backfires by the end of the episode.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold —> Jerk with a Heart of Jerk
- 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 you're 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: He fell in love with a fish hook.
- Catch Phrase: "That was nuts!" and, occasionally: "Me?! I.......YOU!!" when Norb blames him for something.
- Characterization Marches On: Although he starts out as the more socially awkward beaver, Dag later develops a knack for befriending total strangers later on.
- 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: He's one of the protagonists, but that doesn't stop him from having a Hair-Trigger Temper and paranoia.
- 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.
- Hates Baths: In "Kreature Komforts" Norb instantly convinces Dag to give up all their possessions and live like real beavers, simply by telling him he won't have to bathe anymore.
- Idiot Hero: Sure, he's a really good fellow, once you get to know him, but he doesn't have his mind on the ball.
- Keet: He's full of energy.
- Large Ham: Being subtle isn't his thing.
- Let Me at Him!: What he does to his adversaries.
- No Sympathy: Towards both Bing and the Bing Bunny when they realized nobody wanted to be their friends. It usually takes Norb forcing Dag to show some compassion.
- 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 unprovoked 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: His Fatal Flaw.
- Too Dumb to Live: Especially in the later episodes.
- Verbal Tic: An "Eeeh" sort of sound.
Voice Actor: N/AA tree stump with a carved-in face, and a close friend of the beavers.
Tropes associated with Stump:
- Animate Inanimate Object: Apparently, he can move around, help construct buildings, and even get into a car and drive. We never see it ourselves, though.
- Companion Cube
- Talking with Signs: Was seen holding up a wooden "Ha Ha!" sign, in reponse to a picture at the end of "Stump looks for his Roots."
Voice Actor: Victor WilsonAn extremely annoying, fast-talking chamelecko.
Tropes associated with Bing:
- Distaff Counterpart: His on-and-off girlfriend Wanda is his, to the point of being a female Expy.
- I Just Want to Have Friends
- Leitmotif: He has a very catchy one.
- Mix-and-Match Critters: Part chameleon, and part gecko. Since he was seen changing color like the former and replacing his broken-off tail like the latter species.
- Motor Mouth
- Small Annoying Creature
- The Cat Came Back
- The Thing That Would Not Leave: His debut episode is even called "The Bing That Wouldn't Leave".
Voice Actor: Cynthia MannA once-hippie beaver girl that Norbert fell in love with after meeting at a concert.
Tropes associated with Treeflower:
- Early-Bird Cameo: Treeflower (or another female beaver that used the same design) appeared before in "Long in the Teeth" and "The Bing that wouldn't Leave."
- Girls Need Role Models: Possibly the reason why she went from hippie to successful career woman in the episodes after 'Bummer of Love', or it was made to lampshade this topic.
- Innocent Blue Eyes: Notably one of only two characters on the show to have irises, hers being an expressive blue.
- Let's Duet: "I Think I Like You" with Norb.
- Love Interest
- New-Age Retro Hippie: At first.
- New Job as the Plot Demands: And personalities, in every appearance. The episode "Pass It On!" has her change outfits (and presumably personalities) between shots.
- No Accounting for Taste: Briefly dates Truckee.
- Will They or Won't They?
Voice Actor: John Garry
- No Celebrities Were Harmed: His speech patterns make it very clear that he's based on Barry White.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: With Daggett. Most times he can't stand him, but doesn't seem to mind and even likes it when Daggett helps him find his groove in "Un-Barry-able."
- Early-Bird Cameo: First appeared before in "Long in the Teeth".
- 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.
TruckeeA trucker shrew. Never seen without his oversized trucker hat and rarely seen without his truck.
- A Shrew And His Truck
- Jerk Ass
- Married to the Job: His job and his truck mean the world to him.
- Seldom-Seen Species: You don't see shrews that much in cartoons.
- Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: To Daggett.
- The Napoleon: He's tiny compared to the main characters and their friends, and has quite the attitude.
- What Does She See in Him?: Treeflower briefly fell in love with him, although it was pretty clear he didn't feel quite the same way. He broke off their short-lived (as in day-old) relationship, which freed up Treeflower for Norb, but she friendzoned him.
Scientist #1 and PeteTwo bumbling scientists who constantly menace the beavers for various reasons (none of which make much sense).
- Butt Monkey: Both but especially Pete.
- Catch Phrase: Practically every episode they've appeared begins with:Scientist #1: We're scientists! See see, we've got white coats!
- Evil Laugh: Scientist #1 breaks out into these at random intervals. Even if he's furiously swearing revenge, getting run down by racecars, or simply prattling away.
- For Science!: The only reason they do anything.
- Hollywood Science
- Labcoat of Science and Medicine: Whether or not they can be called scientists is questionable, but to Scientist #1, as long as they have a white coat, they are scientists. Unless it's green, then they're environmental scientists.
- Mad Scientist: Emphasis on 'mad'.
- Those Two Guys: They're not seen without each other.
- Villain Ball: The only reason they're antagonists is because their truly bizarre schemes somehow involve hurting the beavers, their friends and/or their forest.
- Villain Song: Mercilessly parodied in "Spooky Spoots". While Pete goes to work capturing the ghosts with some Magic Music (specifically The Hall Of The Mountain King), Scientist #1 tries to sing along. Tries.
Stacy and Chelsea
Voice Actresses: Stacy and Chelsea SchauerNorb and Dag's younger sisters.
Tropes associated with Stacy and Chelsea:
- Distaff Counterpart: Both are pretty much female kid versions of Norb and Dag, but they get along much better.
- Poorly Disguised Pilot: The episode "House Sisters". Had it caught on, this would have resulted in a type of Spinoff Babies.
Laverta LutzThe "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.
- 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.
El GrapadoraA famous luchador that the beavers are fans of.
- Badass: Whenever he appears, it's always a Crowning Momentof Awesome.
- Bilingual Bonus: His name is Spanish for "The Stapler"
- Catchphrase: "Perfecto!"
- Curb-Stomp Battle: The beavers didn't stand a chance against him.
- The Dreaded: You do not want this guy as an enemy.

- Incoming Ham: His quarry can't help but cry out his name when they see him.
- Masked Luchador: Never takes it off.

- Signature Move: Crushing his opponent with his legs and projectile squeezing them across the arena.
Oxnard MontalvoA famous B-Movie actor that Norb and Dag are fans of.
- Action Hero
- Awesome McCool Name: Oxnard Montalvo. It just doesn't get any better than this.
- Broken Pedestal: Norb and Dag are a little disappointed when they realize he's not as smart as his characters.
- Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Despite his faults, he can handle himself in a fight, going up against several monsters armed only with his fists and later by throwing a random gizmo at them.
- Idiot Hero: He spends more time looking confused than anything.
- The Hero: In his films.
- Hunk: An impressive specimen of a man. He even gets his shirt ripped to show off his buff physique.
- Leitmotif: Has a grandiose string orchestra.
- Non-Standard Character Design: Is drawn in a photo-realistic style which clashes with the rest of the series. At one point he even turned black-and-white.
- The Stoic: Guy never loses his cool.
- Tall, Dark and Handsome: He's tall, has black hair and is quite attractive.
- Unskilled, but Strong: He's hopeless at anything requiring rational thought, choosing to smash whatever's in his way.
- White Male Lead: Parodied. He's actually not that helpful in an emergency.
