    Bee 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bap_bee.png
Voiced by: Allyn Rachel

A goofy and quirky young adult who has terrible luck holding down a job. One rainy night after getting fired from her latest job at a pet store, the mysterious PuppyCat falls on her head and enlists her in a magical temp agency that does odd-jobs across the universe.


  • Adorkable: In many ways, but especially when in front of her crush Deckard.
  • Ambiguous Disorder: Bee is rather quirky and easily distracted note . It is possible that she has ADD or something similar.
  • Animal Motifs: Bee has various characteristics similar to a cat. She is easily distracted, mildly self-centered, has an aversion to water and loves being pampered by others.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Played a little more realistically than most depictions of ADHD—she mostly just spaces out occasionally and has a difficult time focusing on things.
  • Badass Adorable: It's rare that a Magical Girl will immediately lunge at a monster and then start attacking it with her teeth. And win.
  • Big Eater: Bee is very quick to consume whatever food she gets her hands on. Probably justified since she seems to be short on money to buy more food due to being fired from various jobs.
  • Buffy Speak: After the accidental Groin Attack, Bee assures Deckard that she has "stuff" for his "stuff," which is a bag of ice for his crotch.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: Bee has pretty quirky thought patterns, ranging from Unfazed Everyman reactions to the bizarre to her... unique approach to melee combat.
  • Embarrassing but Empowering Outfit: Bee's suit allows her to summon a sword, but she hates wearing it.
  • Genki Girl: A somewhat more realistic example.
  • Idiot Hair: To match her goofy and childish personality.
  • Jabba Table Manners: Eats in such a quick and messy way that most of the food ends around her mouth.
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: Seemingly the purpose of Bee's "emergency mode" when she's revealed to be a robot in "Donut." Bee sustaining damage to her arm results in her regressing to a mode where she saves Deckard's life and destroys the mutated Wishing Hole with silent efficiency Bee has never demonstrated previously in the series.
  • Limited Wardrobe: Averted; Bee has been shown to wear a variety of outfits, whether part of her job or not.
  • Loser Protagonist: From the moment we meet her she states that she got fired from her latest job and couldn't afford to jaywalk.
    • And according to deleted dialogue from the pilot's storyboards, her job at the pet store was actually the third job she'd lost that WEEK.
  • Magical Girl Warrior: Despite having access to some magical stuff thanks to PuppyCat, Bee is more into solving problems with a physical approach.
  • Never Got to Say Goodbye: Downplayed on both sides with Deckard at the end of Season 1. While she didn't see him off due to her Robotic Reveal, Deckard left a letter for his sister to give to the former.
  • No Indoor Voice: Whenever she's suitably alarmed or enraged.
  • Ridiculously Human Robot: She's so human-like almost nobody's able to tell the difference. The only thing that ever indicates she is a robot, outwardly, is her fear of water and the "emergency mode" she sometimes goes into.
  • Robotic Reveal: Episode 10 reveals that Bee is a robot when she tries to stop the kitchen planet's destruction.
  • Super Strength: Immensely strong, but never uses it to make money outside of her temp work.
  • Symbolic Blood: Ribbons of various colors flow from slashing wounds in her wrist during a dream. This turns out to be true to life, as she's a robot and there are spools of said ribbons in her forearm.
  • Tears of Fear: Apparently Bee is so afraid of water that she teared up when she was almost forced to take a bath.
  • Unfazed Everyman: Is rarely affected by the weird stuff that keeps happening around her.
  • The Unfettered: In Donut, when her arm is torn and she goes into "emergency mode," she instantly shifts towards accomplishing her goals with terrifying efficiency. Thankfully, one of these goals is keeping Deckard out of harm.
  • Weirdness Magnet: Oh boy is she ever.
  • Womanchild: Bee is kinda immature for her age and is unable to hold a job for long.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Bee is not a fan of water, refusing to wade out even a few feet in the ocean to reach PuppyCat in episode 3.
    • Episode 4 shows she doesn't even like taking baths unless she absolutely has to. In retrospect, this is justified fear, since she's a robot and probably doesn't know how waterproof she is.

    PuppyCat 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/puppycat_4502.png
Voiced by: OLIVER
Is the deuteragonist of Bee And Puppy Cat.
  • Accessory-Wearing Cartoon Animal: PuppyCat always wears his pink collar with a magical bell, and he also dons some pretty stylish Cool Shades for his April Fool's Day Q&A session.
  • Badass Adorable: PuppyCat qualifies, thanks to his ability to incinerate monster with his Breath Weapon, but he might take issue with being called adorable.
  • Berserk Button: Calling him cute.
  • Breath Weapon: PuppyCat has one that's activated by cocking his tail. And, based on the huge gum bubble in "Farm", his breath is actually like that all the time.
  • The Comically Serious: He's very calm and collected, if not a bit grouchy, and yet is always put through a large amount of slapstick.
  • Cute Kitten/Precious Puppy: His name is PuppyCat.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: PuppyCat seems to have something to him, but what exactly it is remains unclear.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Especially toward Bee and Wallace.
  • Equippable Ally: How Puppycat shoots his Breath Weapon.
  • Expy: Looks a little like Grumpy Cat. This may or may not have been intentional.
  • I Want to Be a Real Man: PuppyCat hates being called cute, and in "Food Farmer", he wanted a leather jacket that would "show how cool [he] is on the outside just like how [he is] on the inside."
  • Intelligible Unintelligible: It seems Bee is the only human able to understand what he says, for some reason, as PuppyCat talked to Deckard but he only heard his funny noises. However, when he says "Pretty Patrick", he says it in English.
  • Kneel Before Zod: Puppycat orders a ladybug to bow to it.
    Puppycat: Hello Peon. Bow to me.
    Ladybug: Ummm... no... thank you.
    Puppycat: Why not?
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: PuppyCat resembles a cross between a... you know what, just take a guess from his name.
  • Mon: Is sort of this mixed with Mentor Mascot.
  • Not So Above It All: PuppyCat, surprisingly, likes "Pretty Patrick's Lunchtime", Bee's favorite show.
  • Perpetual Frowner: PuppyCat's mouth is always turned into a frown. Whether this is its natural shape or PuppyCat is perpetually grumpy is unclear.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: He hates if you call him one though.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: His establishing character moment is demanding that a ladybug bow to him and calling said ladybug a peon.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: He looks perpetually grumpy, and is fairly curt with Bee. However, when babysitting Wallace, the first thing he does is hop on top of Wallace and kiss his forehead because Wallace misses his mom. This seems to be a regular occurrence.
  • Synthetic Voice Actor: His vocals are provided by the Vocaloid, OLIVER.
  • Talking Animal: Although he can only speak in some alien language.
  • Was Once a Man: Implied at the end of the pilot.

    Deckard Wizard 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/beeandpuppycat_deckard_8362.png
Voiced by: Kent Osborne

Bee's friend and neighbor. Works as a prep cook and is an aspiring chef. It also seems to have a slight speech impediment and a crush on Bee.


  • Ambiguously Brown: Deckard is fairly dark-skinned, yet has green and blue eyes.
  • Ambiguous Disorder: According to one of his brothers, Deckard seems to be suffering from depression, as indicated by his tendency to mostly wear his pajamas and having little motivation to get out of bed.
  • The Caretaker: To Bee. Deconstructed a little. His sister calls him out for putting his future aside in order to mother Bee, and she's sure that if Bee found out, she'll feel bad for it.
  • Dark-Skinned Blond: Deckard has dark skin and white hair.
  • Groin Attack: The victim of one from Bee, though it was a complete accident.
  • Luminescent Blush: Deckard is very prone to blushing, especially around Bee.
  • Mismatched Eyes: Deckard's left eye is blue while his right eye is green.
  • Never Got to Say Goodbye: Downplayed on both sides with Bee at the end of Season 1. While Bee didn't see him off due to her Robotic Reveal, Deckard left a letter for his sister to give to the former.
  • Nice Guy: Makes Bee a casserole/lasagna for her after hearing she lost her job.
  • Put on a Bus: Goes off to college at the end of Season 1.
  • Speech Impediment: Appears to have a slight one.
  • Real Men Cook: He works as a cook in a restaurant and he has all that it takes to join a cooking school.
  • Unfazed Everyman: While he is understandably panicked at first when Bee accidentally teleports him along for a temp job in the season finale, he also does quickly calm down and goes along with it. His reaction to seeing Bee's broken arm is more surprise than being scared or unnerved by the sight.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Deckard has white hair.

    Cass Wizard

    Cardamon 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cardamon_7092.png
Voiced by: Alexander Rodriguez

Bee's landlord, who also happens to be a kid.


  • Adorably Precocious Child: He is Bee's landlord, and also has some knowledge of plumbing, despite still being in elementary school. But as seen in Episode 9, he does seem to have some sense of naivety still being a child, believing in the idea a prince will wake his mother up.
  • British Stuffiness: He has a British accent, and despite being a kid he has a very deadpan and no-nonsense attitude towards everything.
  • Brutal Honesty: He bluntly calls PuppyCat fat while patting his belly.
  • The Comically Serious: Cardamon is one of the few really serious characters in this very quirky show, and his deadpan reactions to everything around him are hilarious.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: While he acts a little douche-y towards Bee, he fixes her toilet out of duty and even records "Pretty Patrick's Lunchtime" special episode for her. Though he accidentally spoiled the reveal of Pretty Patrick's favorite food in his letter.
  • Missing Mom: it's heavily Implied that his mother is either recently deceased or very ill. Episode 9 confirms she appears to be in a coma with no signs of waking up.
  • Not So Stoic: Has a Cry Cute when trying to revive his mother using the Wish Candy.

    Pretty Patrick 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/prettypatrick_2847.png
Voiced by: Patrick Seery

The titular character of Bee's favorite show, "Pretty Patrick Lunchtime". Every episode features Patrick eating a different food for lunch and offering it to the audience.


  • Fake Interactivity: In-Universe. His show consists of Patrick asking the audience questions as if he was having a conversation with them, all while having lunch. Bee, as a huge fan, always goes along with him.

    Sticky 

    Bee's Dad 
Voiced by: Doug Smith

  • Gadgeteer Genius: Created some of the arcade games in Glitch Gorge, the Dad Box Bee currently owns and possibly Bee herself.
  • Idiot Hair: Just like his daughter, he also sports one.

    Toast 
Voiced by: Terri Hawkes

  • Ambiguously Gay: During her ranting, she mentions an ex-wife.
  • Dynamic Entry: She shows up at Cass and Deckard's place by coming through their wall. Twice.
  • Large Ham: She doesn't seem to have a speaking volume lower than "loud."
  • The Resenter: As eleventh-ranked wrestler out of twelve (with Cass as number twelve), Cass quitting put her in last place, which she's less than thrilled about.

    Temp-Bot 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tempbot_4060.png
Voiced by: Marina Sirtis (Pilot), Hannah Hart (Episode 2), Roz Ryan (Episode 4), Ellen McLain (Episode 6), Joan Koplan (Episode 9)

  • Ambiguous Gender: Despite being voiced by females in both the pilot and series, her gender was unknown until she was confirmed as female in Episode 03.
  • Animate Inanimate Object: A giant TV screen with wings and a face.
  • Benevolent A.I.: Is overall a very friendly and cheerful computer, just be sure you're an authorized guest... Or at least made into one.
  • Casting Gag: Almost always has one to reference her current voice actress.
  • Cute Machines: Complete with little angel wings.
  • Lighter and Softer: While still friendly, Temp-Bot was much more robotic in tone and personality in the pilot, even attempting to incinerate Bee because she thought she was an intruder. However, she seems a lot more cheerful and sociable in the series and less likely to burn our Heroine... until her appearance in episode 9, anyway, though that may be due to her glitching at the time.
  • Mission Control: For PuppyCat.
  • Mission Control Is Off Its Meds: In the season finale. It stops when Bee tells it to cut it out, though.
  • The Other Darrin: Invoked; her voice actress changes in every appearance she makes.

    Wallace 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/beeandpuppycat_wallace_3170.png
Voiced by: Frank Gibson

  • Phrase Catcher: "He's so sad."
  • Walking Spoiler: He's actually the first monster Bee and PuppyCat fight.
  • Wangst: In-universe. He cries about how his mom's been "gone forever", only for PuppyCat to comment that she's only been gone for two minutes and will probably be back in ten.
  • Wham Line: Provides one after PuppyCat's story:
    Wallace: That's your ending? That's awful! And very... (grows sharp fangs and eyes start glowing red) iNTeReSTinG!

    The Farmer 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/thefarmer_7925.png
Voiced by: Stephen Root

    Keith 
Voiced by: Garret Jackson

A crab who has a fondness for... erhm... cleavage.


  • Butt-Monkey: Constantly shut down by Bee and PuppyCat for his cleavage obsession.
  • Fetish: Can you guess?
  • Covert Pervert: Who would've expected such a cute crab to have such an obsession with cleavage? Thankfully he has no interest in our protagonist's cleavage. PuppyCat on the other hand....
  • Lovable Sex Maniac: Zigzagged, none of the characters like him at all and he doesn't seem interested in sex itself, just the shape of cleavage in any form.
  • Phrase Catcher: "Cleavage, Dude?"
  • Talking Animal: A talking crab.

    Moully 
Voiced by: Liam MacKay

A gigantic friendly baker who makes cosmic pastries.


  • Ambiguous Situation: He's pulled into the Wishing Hole, which was then destroyed by Bee. It's not clear if he died or ended up somewhere else.
  • Blush Sticker: They're flowers!
  • Gentle Giant: He has a very warm, encouraging personality. Even his appearance is cuddly.
  • Famous Last Words: "Thanks for being so nice to me. No one's ever bandaged my finger before-"
  • Nice Guy: He's nothing but friendly throughout his appearance.
  • Our Giants Are Bigger: He's large enough for a fully grown human to sit comfortably in the palm of his hand.
  • Super Strength: As his size would imply. A casual thump on the countertop shakes the kitchen. However, he's not as strong as Bee, much to his own astonishment.
  • Take Our Word for It: The boss says he's "crazy." But he doesn't show any signs of insanity whatsoever.
