    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.


  • 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. But ironically she's still associated with bees.
  • 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.
  • Character Development: During the 2nd season with Deckard gone to baking school and him asking her to take care of his family, Bee tries to actively be more responsible and reliable, taking on more jobs and actually trying to do some of them instead of just fumbling around and giving up when things got too hard letting Puppycat finish them; and she even tries to be there to help and support Cardamon who get progressively more stressed out, at some point she evens goes into the water (which she hates) to retrieve her stuff from under the seas because it's causing damage to the island.
  • 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.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: For him and the space princess, at least. His skin color is black, just like the silhouette had shown.
  • Ambiguously Bi: Has a whole backstory with the space princess but also seems to have a crush on or at least strong admiration for Pretty Patrick.
  • 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.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: As the space outlaw.
  • Bishounen: When we finally see Puppycat as his true form, the space outlaw and more than just a silhouette.
  • 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.
  • Childhood Friends: With Violet. They ran away to space together which began his adventures as the space outlaw.
  • 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?
  • Lack of Empathy: Despite implying that he babysat for Wallace often, PuppyCat isn't broken up at all upon killing him. It probably has to do with the fact that whatever was possessing Wallace tried to kill him just moments before.
  • 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.
  • Narcissist: Played for Laughs, but he displays shades of this especially as the space outlaw.
  • 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.
  • The Runaway: Ran away with Violet, Cardamon’s mother, as a child after determining that they were unwanted on their current planet. This is presumably how he became the space outlaw.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: If the original flashback sequence was any indication, he was fairly normal kid that took verbal abuse from his teacher constantly before Violet finally decided that it was enough. Becoming the space outlaw seemed to have changed him significantly, as he’d gone the rest of his youth without any parental figure to look after him.
  • Was Once a Man: Implied at the end of the pilot.

Wizard Household

In General

  • Ambiguously Brown: The whole family has a medium-brown complexion, but no known ethnicity.
  • Massive Numbered Siblings: There are seven of them in total.
  • Naming Conventions: All of the siblings are named after famous Wizards.
  • Outnumbered Sibling: Cass is the only girl of her siblings.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Most people on Earth have standard hair colors from the few we see outside the main cast, but the Wizards do not. Most of them have natural teal colored hair, although it was not immediately apparent for Merlin and Wesley.

    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.

The only Wizard child without teal hair.


  • 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.
  • Meaningful Name: Deckard's name is very coincidentally apt, considering Bee, his implied and potential love interest, turns out to be a robot. The Deckard of Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? or the one of Blade Runner could say the same.
  • 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.

    Cass Wizard 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cass_6390.png
Voiced by: Ashly Burch

  • Brutal Honesty: Cass has a tendency to speak her mind. She lets Deckard know she thinks he's avoiding a shot at success because he's too busy mothering Bee, that she finds Bee's inability to grow up weird, and that she only does her programming job because it pays wellinvoked.
  • Cool Big Sis: To Deckard. They have a good relationship and often have playful fights.
  • Curtains Match the Windows: Cass has teal eyes and hair.
  • Embarrassing First Name: “Cass” is short for “Castaspella,” which she doesn’t seem terribly fond of. Using the full version is one of the ways Toast likes to needle her.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: Appears to be the more responsible sibling to Deckard's foolish. She, at least outwardly, knows what she wants out of life while Deckard still shuffled in between his feelings for Bee and his acceptance letter.
  • Only Sane Man: She is the only person to point out the weird happenings involving Bee, such as the fact that Bee hasn't aged since they were young, that she keeps food in the bathroom, and has alien friends.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: Cass is a former wrestler in the comic books and in the series she easily applies a leg grab on Deckard.

  • Older Than They Look: Confirmed to be 30 in his birthday episode but looks the same age as his siblings.

    Crispin Wizard 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/1ae3bc28_9fd5_49b3_9429_295cd9bba0b8.png
Voiced by:

  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: He’s a pretty good mechanic who runs his own shop, but there’s a bit of a catch: anything he works on becomes a canvas for his “art.” Expect it to come back with a clown-themed paint job and confetti shooting from the tailpipe.

    Tim Wizard 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/0d9fbad9_d7cc_4ccc_bda4_10c12332545a.png
Voiced by:

  • The Quiet One: Excluding his first appearance in the finale of the first season where he vocally inquires if Deckard is still depressed due to not wearing pjs, Tim is only one of the Wizard siblings that doesn’t have a single line of spoken dialogue.

    Wesley Wizard 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/a0d08195_5ea9_40d3_931f_9cca5fcec3ee.png
Voiced by:

  • Alliterative Name: Wesley Wizard.
  • Inexplicably Awesome: No matter what happens around him, it will somehow make him look cooler. Even seagull poop landing on his shoulder winds up forming the shape of a skull.

  • Happily Married: Assuming Toast was telling the truth about their marriage, he’s this with Toast as they’re shown to be happy together.

Earth

    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.
  • Perpetual Frowner: He's never seen smiling.
  • Pint-Sized Kid: Is barely any bigger than his dog, Sticky.
  • The Stoic: Keeps a straight face.
  • The Stool Pigeon: Learns how to “tattle” in season two.
  • Shipper on Deck: He tries to get Sticky and PuppyCat together, even hosting a wedding for them.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Cardamon has light purple hair.
  • Young and in Charge: Now that his mom is "unavailable", he's the building's landlord now.

    Cardamon’s Mother Violet 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/e5e1c93a_5b19_44ad_b7d1_b8c0b6fd8b00.png
Voiced by: Jennifer Tilly

Cardamon’s unnamed mother who appears to be in a deep slumber.


  • Connected All Along: Was Childhood Friends with the space outlaw, and accompanied him on his adventures as an active participant.
  • Deep Sleep: It’s implied in season 1 that she’s been asleep for quite a while, though it’s never specified how long.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Has long, lavender hair that goes past her butt.
  • The Runaway: She and the space outlaw together were this as children. They ran away after a deciding that they were unwanted on their current planet using a space ship that they accidentally activated.
  • Tomboy: Implied to be this as a child in the flashback sequences.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Has lavender hair like her son.

    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.

    Bee's Dad 
Voiced by: Doug Smith

    Toast 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/toastpose.png
Voiced by: Terri Hawkes

  • Accidental Misnaming: Played for Laughs. She calls the father of her children and her “husband” Marvin instead of Merlin.
  • Ambiguously Bi: 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."
  • Happily Married: If she was telling the truth about Merlin, who she can’t even remember the name of, being her husband, then they are this as they’re shown to be happy together.
  • 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.

Space

    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)

  • Adaptational Kindness: 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.
  • Ambiguous Gender: Tempbot is just a big square box with no secondary sexual characteristics. Despite being voiced by women 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 voice actress of the episode:
    • Her Episode 4 voice is more of a doting mother figure and calls Bee and PuppyCat "flapjacks."
    • Her actress in Episode 6 is a slightly more friendly GLaDOS. She's more sarcastic to Bee (and notably not to PuppyCat) and offers to send them into a game world, even promising cake. Her voice is more robotic and stoic here as well.
  • Cute Machines: Complete with little angel wings.
  • Mission Control: For PuppyCat. She assigns all of the latter's jobs, provides warp transport, and assigns payment when done.
  • Mission Control Is Off Its Meds: In the season finale. It stops when Bee tells her 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

  • The Eeyore: Well, as Bee says, he's sooo sad.
  • Killed Off for Real: When PuppyCat delivers the final blow to the Eldritch Abomination possessing him, his body is vaporized with it.
  • Momma's Boy: Evidently, he loves his mother enough to cry rivers of tears when she leaves the home for whatever reason.
  • Phrase Catcher: "He's so sad."
  • Starter Villain: 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

    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.


  • Blush Sticker: They're flowers!
  • The Bus Came Back: In Season 2.
  • The Dragon: In the finale of season two, the warlocks forcibly take over his body and send him to Earth to find and kidnap Puppycat, using his physical body as a proxy to keep their hands clean (well, as clean as one can be with regards to the body takeover method) and his brute strength to their advantage.
  • 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. The warlocks later exploit this strength. 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.
