    Remy Remington

"Violin lessons be darned!"
Voiced by: Zeno Robinson
Cricket and Tilly's rich but free-spirited best friend.
  • Alliterative Name: Remy Remington.
  • Black and Nerdy
  • Calling the Old Man Out: Remy calls out his parents in "Remy Rescue" for not letting him make his own decisions and trying to keep him from hanging out with Cricket and Tilly. Fortunately, his parents see the error of their ways and let the two be friends again.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: Downplayed and shown briefly in "Phoenix Rises", when he internally freaks out when Cricket calls Phoenix his best friend.
  • A Day in the Limelight: He gets a major role in "Remy Rescue", "DIY Guys", "Dinner Party" and "Time Crisis".
  • Drop-In Character: He comes to the Green house multiple times, since his and Cricket's first meeting, and seems to be the only companion of the Greens who visits them on a standard basis. Becomes more evident since "Remy Rescue" when he admits to his parents he wants to get out of the house more.
  • Expy: He strongly resembles Irwin from The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy.
  • Extreme Doormat: As seen in "Remy Rescue", he is too chicken to stand up to his parents, even meekly asking if he can't go to boarding school. That is until his Calling the Old Man Out moment above.
  • Grew a Spine: In "Remy Rescue", he finally gains the courage to stand up to his parents.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Cricket.
  • Hidden Depths: Aside from the violin, he is also skilled at ballroom dance and solving puzzles. He can also sing in a choir as well as rapping and karaoke.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: In "Chipocalypse Now", he has no idea who Chip Whistler is, due to never encountering him before.
  • Lonely Rich Kid: He's the only child in a family of highly wealthy parents. It doesn't stop him from hanging out with Tilly and Cricket.
  • Nice, Mean, and In-Between: The in-between to Tilly's nice and Cricket's mean. He always watches out for Cricket, but is more serious than Tilly.
  • Off to Boarding School: Almost happened to him in "Remy Rescue".
  • Repetitive Name: Remy Remington. Cricket was surprised by this.
  • Sheltered Aristocrat: Due to his sheltered upbringing, Remy has very little experience in the outside world.
  • Shipper on Deck: Supports Cricket and Gabriella and struggles to encourage him to confess his love, but it all comically backfires. He is successful in the end when they reveal their love for each other and begin dating.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Remy's light brown skin tone comes from his mother, while his wide cheekbones come from his father. His purple hair color is also his mom's pink hair and his dad's blue hair mixed together.
  • Undying Loyalty: He remains so close to Cricket to the point where he never betrays him once.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Remy's father is a famous football star while Remy is a creative, unatheletic kid who's also an expert gamer. "Football Camp" reveals that Remy has always felt self-conscious about that difference between them - since he knew Russell was hoping his son would follow in his footsteps - and the whole plot of that adventure revolves around Remy trying to gain his dad's pride and approval, before both of them agree that Remy is just fine the way he is at the episode's end.
  • Worth It: He has horrible dog allergies, but he seemed fine suffering through them if it meant getting to pet dogs in "Tilly's Goat".
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Has pale purple hair.

Remy's bodyguard.

The Satos

    Gloria Sato 

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/64493e1d_f97b_48e0_a231_3235c26b485e.png
"When I was growing up, I always wished I was someplace more interesting, like Big City or Paris. But the truth is... I'm not."
Click to see Gloria as a Big Coffee employee 
Voiced by: Anna Akana
A former cafe girl who used to work at Big Coffee next door to The Greens' house. A bit grumpy and ill-tempered, she becomes friends and co-workers with Cricket. Following Big Coffee's shutdown, she now resides with the Greens and has her own cafe. She is an honorary Green.
  • All Asians Know Martial Arts: She appears to be Asian, and is well-versed in Tae Kwon Do.
  • Ascended Extra: Before "Critterball Crisis", she only made minor appearances (usually suffering the consequences of Cricket's antics). After that episode, she has received much more focus and has become one of the main characters alongside the Greens and Remy. This is especially true after moving in with the Greens. Instead of only appearing when Cricket is at work, Gloria now appears in nearly every episode. By the end of Season 2, she has her own cafe and is considered family by the Greens.
  • Badass Normal: Like many of the main characters of the show. She's very strong and is very skilled in Tae-Kwon Do; she can even tackle stronger people than her.
  • Berserk Button:
    • In "Coffee Quest"; Being called "ponytail" by Chip Whistler angers her enough to send him flying with a kick.
    • Never scam her, Cricket and John found that out the hard way in "Flimflammed".
  • Butt-Monkey: Life seems determined to make Gloria miserable.
  • Character Development: She becomes calmer, nicer, and friendlier towards Cricket as the series progresses. Throughout the show, Gloria opens herself up to the Greens family and slowly becomes a sisterly figure to Cricket and Tilly. She even becomes more appreciative towards them. They try to cheer her up after she loses her job after "Chipocalypse Now" and motivate her to ask Kevin out in "Big Resolution". In addition, she becomes more playful as shown in "The Room" where she and Alice used both Cricket and Tilly as competitors for their own room after the TV cable went out. After losing her job, she eventually gets her own cafe with help from Alice and sees the Greens as a second family to her.
  • Cool Big Sis: Show shades of these for Cricket and Tilly.
  • Cope by Creating: "Paint Misbehavin'" reveals that Gloria copes with her sadness and extreme stress by painting and is happy to explain how she felt when she painted each work as well as what she was coping with at the time. Unfortunately, she's a Butt Monkey and nobody sees any beauty in her paintings until Cricket adds crude drawings of common objects to the canvases. The very fact that her paintings got no attention without the help of a small annoying child does not escape her notice.
  • Cranky Neighbor: Nearly all of her interactions with the Greens (especially Cricket) consist of her complaining about their behavior, though she becomes calmer towards them as the series progresses.
  • A Day in the Limelight: She gets a major role in "Critterball Crisis", "Paint Misbehavin'", "Parade Day", "Coffee Quest", "Elevator Action", "Rent Control", "Big Resolution", "The Room" and "Gloria's Cafe".
  • Defrosting the Ice Queen: Near the end of "Critterball Crisis", Cricket decides to stand up for her when her boss enters the Big Coffee and threatens to fire her, and Cricket agrees to take a part-time job and make amends by working off the damages.
    • In "Paint Misbehavin'", her artwork starts to sell like hotcakes when Cricket starts doodling on it. After going their separate ways doesn't quite work out, they realize that their artistic teamwork is what helped get customers interested in buying the paintings.
    • By the end of "Coffee Quest", she has grown to like having Cricket working alongside her. So much so that she breaks some of the shop's supplies and pins the blame on Cricket so he can keep working there.
    • Throughout the show, she grows more fond of the Greens and upon moving in with them, she practically becomes part of the family.
  • Did Not Get The Guy: She gets rejected by Kevin, but she's not upset about it. It's possible she may try again in the future.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: Cricket and Gloria slowly become friends over the course of the first season.
  • Grumpy Bear: Though between her crushed dreams and the constant string of bad luck she endures at every turn, you can't blame her.
  • Hidden Depths:
    • She works as a barista so she can save up and achieve her dream of visiting Paris.
    • Some time before Big City, she took up Tae Kwon Do and youth soccer. She's a purple belt with the former.
    • Sometimes she views herself as a failure and went as far as to run an illegal underground cafe to achieve her dreams.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: She acts extremely hard towards the Greens after Cricket accidentally launches a chicken into the cafe, but it is understandable; especially since it's implied it wasn't the first time an incident like this occurred. She warms up to them over time.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She has a rather cynical personality, but she is still a decent person and hard worker, and her friendship with Cricket starts to warm her up a bit more.
  • Like a Son to Me: The Green family consider her to be practically a part of the family to the point that when she loses both of her jobs because of them and cannot pay for rent, she decides to move in with them in "Chipocalypse Now" and they allow her to do so. Alice even buys the empty space that used to be Big Coffee, so that Gloria can have her own cafe.
  • Like Brother and Sister: Her and Cricket's Relationship has evolved into this.
  • New Job as the Plot Demands: From "Chipocalypse Now" until "Gloria's Cafe", Gloria was left jobless and had to work in different jobs. Justified because she wants to maintain herself and wants to go Paris one day.
  • Nightmare Face: She can do a really good one in "Flimflammed" that scared Cricket a lot, when he scammed her.
  • Non-Protagonist Resolver: She ends up saving the Greens' stand in "Sellouts" thanks to her social media idea.
  • Not So Above It All: While she reprimands Cricket for causing trouble for her cafe, she was more than willing to further escalate their conflict in "Critterball Crisis" when he accidentally destroys her miniature Eiffel Tower replica. She even seemed to be getting into critterball when she tried to ward off the kids.
    • In "Paint Misbehavin" she tags along with Cricket to make a mess in the art gallery even commenting that she has the most fun that night.
    • "The Room" has her and Alice using Cricket and Tilly as replacement for their favorite TV show.
    • In "Gloria's Cafe", she runs an illegal, underground cafe after being rejected for a bank loan.
  • Pink Means Feminine: She wears a pink t-shirt most of the time.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: With Cricket, who is more like a little brother to her.
  • Pre Ass Kicking One Liner: In "Coffee Quest" when she rejects Chip's deal.
    Gloria: Sorry, Chip! I'm no city girl, I'M FROM THE SUBURBS!
  • Purple Is Powerful: Mundane example. Her skin is light purple and she's well trained in Tae-Kwon Do. She's also a purple belt.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The responsible, calm, cynical, down-to-earth blue to Cricket's energetic, mischevious, irresponsible, idealistic red. Even Gloria's skin color is a "cold color" and Cricket's skin color is a "warm color".
  • She Cleans Up Nicely: In "Paint Misbehavin'", she dresses up to attend Cricket's gallery opening, and doesn't look half bad.
  • Sitcom Archnemesis: Initially, She hated having to work next to the Green house, as well as having Cricket as a co-worker. Fortunately devolved into Vitriolic Best Buds.
  • Sour Outside, Sad Inside: On the outside, Gloria is a cynical, bitter, sarcastic, and grouchy girl. On the inside, she suffers from pretty deep-seated self esteem issues, mostly because she has to work as a barista while the rest of her family is much more accomplished than her.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Gloria's blue hair color came from her father, while her oval eye shape came from her mother (it's unknown if Mr. Sato has oval eyes as well, since he wears square glasses), and her purple skin tone is her mother's pink skin and her father's blue skin mixed together.
  • Suddenly Ethnicity,: In "Rent Control", Gloria's surname and ethnicity are revealed when her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Sato come to visit her, indicating that she is Japanese.
  • This Means War!: Willingly pops most of Cricket's critterballs in retaliation for breaking her Eiffel Tower replica.
  • Throw the Dog a Bone: She has her happy ending in the second season finale where she opens up her own cafe.
  • Token Houseguest: Moved in with the Greens in the last third of S2, and the only one unrelated to them.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Evolves into a more kinder character as the series goes, which seems to fully cement once she moves in with the Greens.
  • Unlimited Wardrobe: Wears a variety of casual clothes throughout Season 2, espeically after moving in with the Greens.
  • Unstoppable Rage: If you ever push one of her berserk buttons prepare for a very angry Gloria to get back at you.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: She slowly develops this dynamic with Cricket. While they disagree and argue a lot depending on the situation, they have each others' backs, and work well together when needed.
  • Vocal Evolution: Her voice becomes deeper and more attentive in later episodes.
  • When She Smiles: She doesn't smile that often, but when she does, it's a genuinely heart warming sight. She evolves out of this after moving in with the Greens.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has just that.

Authority

    Officer Keys 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/officerkeys2.png
"Well, sure, but everyone makes mistakes. Sometimes, you gotta cut people some slack."
Voiced by: Andy Daly, Jason Maybaum (young self in "Green's Acres")
A police officer in Big City who doesn't seem to take his job seriously.

  • A Day in the Limelight: He receives one in "Green Streets", where he has a main role in the episode.
  • All-Loving Hero: He never has a bad opinion about anyone, not even guys like Chip Whistler.
  • Art Evolution: In the earliest episodes, his face was more angular. In his lattest appearances his face is now more rounded.
  • Badass Mustache: Just look at his picture, he has a black mustache and is an ally to the Greens.
  • Badass Normal: Like many of the main characters in the show. Officer Keys is strong enough to give fight to tough people. Justified because he's a police officer.
  • Berserk Button: Attacking him is not a good idea, you really don't want to see him angry as Gramma Alice found it the hard way in "Sellouts".
  • Beware of the Nice Ones: Officer Keys is a nice guy, who is very weird and commonly a goofball. But don't think just because that's his personality doesn't make it less competent, like "Reckoning Ball", "Heat Beaters" or "Chipocalypse Now" shows us to give an example. And there's his "serious side".
  • Big Damn Heroes:
    • In "Reckoning Ball", he comes out of nowhere to protect the Greens when Chip threatens them with a wrecking ball.
    • In "Heat Beaters", he takes Cricket and Remy home before they die from a heatstroke.
    • In "Chipocalypse Now", he decides to free Nancy and take her to the Mayor's house so they can save the Green's house, before it's too late.
  • Blue Is Heroic: His outfit is mainly blue and is a good guy for the most part.
  • Changed My Mind, Kid: Keys decides to help Nancy to save the Green's house when he sees Chip threatening the Greens in TV.
  • Butt-Monkey: Downplayed. He at times is victim of slapstic, but compared to other characters the damage he receives is tame in comparison and less often.
    • In "Gramma's Licence", Gramma Alice crashes againist his police car and runs over his leg.
    • In "Park Pandemonium" he crashes againist a crack in the sidewalk while skating.
    • In "Wishing Well", the fountain explodes on him and he's sent flying to a tree.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: To put it simply; he's a total space case.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: He has a "serious side" that makes him a dangerous and merciless cop. Ignoring this side of him, even in "nice mode" he's a competent cop and is still helpful.
  • The Cutie: A weird example where an adult is one, but the traits are there. He's very innocent, he's very nice and very excitable. Did you even knew he named his badge "Mr. Shine-Shine"?
  • Determinator: If he catches you doing a crime or has the slightest suspect that you're doing something shady, he won't stop until you're in jail.
  • The Dreaded: Only if you're doing something wrong or get involved in a crime... like in "Uncaged", "The Van" or "Gloria's Café".
  • Dumbass Has a Point: While he's not the brightest bulb in the series, he's right in calling out Alice for harrasing people in the Farmer's Market, also telling her that attacking a police officer is a crime.
    Alice: Stay out of this Keys! It ain't illegal to sell tomatoes.
    Officer Keys: Well no, but it is illegal to harass all of these people.
  • Good Is Not Nice: His "serious mode" is this in spades! He really hates that "mode".
    Officer Keys: Oh, thank goodness! Being tough is so exhausting! Can you imagine if I had to be like that all the time?!
  • Good Is Not Soft: Officer Keys is a nice guy, but don't expect he go easy on you if he catches you doing something that is bad. Examples include:
  • Everybody Has Standards:
    • In "Uncaged", Nancy uses this againist him to escape. She yells that is in the shower, causing Officer Keys to blush, feel uncomfortable and decides to wait outside.
    • In "Green Streets", whenever Cricket rudely interrogates the people to look for the "litterbug", Officer Keys apologizes for Cricket's actions.
    • In "Reckoning Ball", when he sees that Chip about to destroy the house of the Greens with a wrecking ball, that will kill them in the process, he says that murder is illegal and stops him. Yet he fails in arrest him. He and the Green family also close their eyes and have a painful look when the wrecking ball fails and hits Chip instead.
    • In "Chipocalypse Now", he's among the people who finds unfair that Chip wants to destroy the Greens' House and frees and helps Nancy to look for the mayor to stop Chip.
    • In "Sellouts", he calls out Alice for harassing everyone in the Farmer's Market.
  • Extreme Omnivore: Played for laughs in "Green Streets" when he eats a cup of coffe.
  • Expy: A police officer that changes between a "nice mode" and a "serious mode" at the point both parts of his personality look like split personalities? Doesn't remind you of Good Cop/Bad Cop?
  • Friend to All Children: If his interactions with Cricket and Tilly are something to go by. This also includes the occasional interactions with Benny, Andromeda and Remy.
  • Hero Antagonist: Whenever Cricket is doing a mischief, for example: "Green Streets", "Uncaged" or "Wishing Well". He also becomes temporary on this in "Chipocalypse Now", when Chip tricks him. He also becomes one in "Gloria's Café".
  • Hidden Depths: As much of a goofball he is, he's surprisingly very clever. In "Gloria's Café", he disguises as a hipster so he could enter to her coffee and learn whats happening.
  • Intergenerational Friendship / Odd Friendship: He really enjoys the company of Cricket and Tilly, at the point he openly refer them as his favorite people to police (Being his police partners). He also considers Nancy as a friend despite her rebellious nature.
  • Keet: He's very excitable and easy to impress.
  • Lantern Jaw of Justice: Just look at the picture, he has a prominent square chin (that was more angular in his early appearances) and he has police officer, he's a nice guy and despite his flaws, he genuenely wants that Big City be a good place.
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: He has his moments when he turns like this, even in "Nice Mode".
    • Invoked in "Green Streets", as Cricket wanted him to become less lenient with whoever was the "litterbug", when this happens his personality changes from his nice self to a merciless self.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: Whenever the Greens are doing something wrong or a crime, (see Hero Antagonist, The Dreaded and Determinator above) they'll try their best to keep Officer Keys away from learning about it. It usually fails and Offcier Keys discovers about it anyway, leading to him trying to try arrest them.
  • Manchild: He has his moments.
    • In "Green Streets" there's a scene where dogs are licking him and he enjoying it.
    • In "Skunked" it's revelated that Keys named his badge "Mr. Shine-Shine" and is afraid to lose it.
    • In "Wishing Well", he still believes in wishes and his biggest one is to fly and attempts to arrest Cricket for messing with the fountain.
    • In “Cricket’s Tickets” he’s the only adult competing for the extra ticket to the Barnacle Ball.
  • Major Injury Underreaction: He's very prone to suffer accidents, but tends to take them very surprisingly well.
    • In "Gramma's Driver", Bash and Bella run over him with Alice's car, despite having a broken leg from the incident he took it very well and only said that it wasn't good.
    • In "Sellouts", Gramma's kicks him in his foot, although he didn't reacted to the injury at all, he didn't took Alice act very well.
  • Momma's Boy: Implied in "Wishing Well", when after he "flies" he says:
    Officer Keys: I'M DOIN' IT, MA! I'M FLYING!
  • Mood-Swinger: Another of his traits. He can speak in a serious tone in one moment and in the other, his voice changes to a cheerful tone.
    Officer Keys: (Serious Voice) Nancy Green, you're under arrest. (Cheerful Voice) Again!
  • Nice Guy: He's genuinely nice to everyone in Big City, especially the Greens.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: In "Bleeped", he teaches Cricket and his friends more swears believing that they must know them, so they don't say them, it backfires and he instead taught the children more swears. Bill calls out on that before and after the incident.
  • OOC Is Serious Business: Invoked. Cricket wanted him to be more merciless with horrible results. He reverts back to end of the episode, since he hates being "serious" all the time.
  • The Pollyanna: Even when facing bad moments, he never has anything bad to say.
    • In "Wishing Well", when the fountain explodes, he's more happy about the fact he's finally "flying".
    • In "Heat Beaters", he doesn't care that his colleages left him behind to patrol Big City by himself in a heat wave.
    Officer Keys: Unless, of course, you are required to patrol the streets, while your colleagues all go on a group trip to the beach! Ha-ha! How unlucky for me!!
  • Police Are Useless: Although better than most examples.
    • Zigzagged in "Impopstar", he refuses to help the Greens to find Cricket, because Zillon Brax is more important, he even lampshades the trope, saying that the police could help to find Cricket but Zillon is more important. Then when the family finds Cricket, Keys arrests Amaryllis for kidnapping "Zillon" (Cricket, actually).
    • Zigzagged again in "Chipocalypse Now", Chip tricks him into arresting Nancy, then he frees her after seeing that the Green's house will be destroyed and takes her to the house of the mayor.
    • Played straight in "Chipocalypse Now"; when Keys sees Cricket about to be killed by Chip's helicopter and later when he tries to get the whole family together, he does nothing, and vanishes for the rest of the episode. Granted, Chip would've gotten in even more trouble for attempting murder, as Keys pointed out in "Reckoning Ball" to begin with.
  • Purple Is Powerful: A mundane case. His skin is purple, he's a police officer and when he's determined, he's a fairly competent cop.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Zigzagged. Despite being one of the nicest characters of the series, depending the episode, Officer Keys can be a threat to the Greens. But thankfully he's usually in their side and is always willing to listen or reason with them, despite his flaws.
    • In "Gramma's Driver", he tells Alice that people do stupid things for rewards like stars, after Bash and Bella stole her car.
    • In "Chipocalypse Now", after realizing that Chip tricked him, he let's Nancy escape from jail and takes her to the Mayor's Home so she can help her family to save their farm and legacy.
  • Skewed Priorities:
    • In "Uncaged", he spends half of the episode trying to arrest Nancy, but ignores the fact that are wild animals roaming free in the city.
    • In "Wishing Well", he tries to stop Cricket from stealing the money in the fountain, because according to him, Cricket is stealing wishes.
    • In "Impopstar", Cricket was kidnapped by Amaryllis, but he refuses to help the Green family, because Zillon Brax is missing and he's more important, according him.
  • Split Personality: Implied. In "Green Streets", when he changes between "nice mode" and "serious mode" changes his personality at 180° and the two "modes" behave like two different personalities, according to Keys, he hates his "serious mode". If those "modes" are really personalities or Keys has something like Multiple Personality Disorder, we'll never know and it was never confirmed.
  • Tranquil Fury: In "Sellouts", when Grandma Alice kicks him for "getting in her way" when attracting customers, when this happens, his voice suddenly dropped to a dry tone while telling her that kicking a police officer is a serious crime, the most jarring thing is that he keeps his happy face while saying that, before changing his voice.
  • Too Dumb to Live: In "Gramma's Driver", he admits that the only reason he became a police officer is to do stupid things for stars.

Cricket and Gloria's boss at the coffee shop.


  • Last-Name Basis: In "Cricket's Kapowie", her first name is revealed to be Miriam by Donny Tinselton.
  • Put on a Bus: She leaves town in vacation clothes after saying her first and only line in “Chipwrecked” when Chip buys Big Coffee from her. With the building now being for rent at the end of “Chipocalypse Now”, it looks like she retired and, like the business, is now gone for good.
  • Suddenly Voiced: In "Chipwrecked", when Chip buys out Big Coffee from her, she takes off her business uniform, gets into her vacation clothes and says, "Peace out, my dudes!"
  • The Unintelligible: For some reason, Mrs. Cho never says a single word, but mostly speaks in grunts. The one time that she needed to give a more detailed instruction, she had it written down on her smartphone. She speaks in "Chipwrecked" after Big Coffee is bought by Chip, likely as a final send off for her.

"I'm incredibly rich and incredibly crazy!"
Voiced by: Cheri Oteri
The eccentric CEO of Big Tech, a company in Big City that specializes in creating cutting-edge technology to improve people's lives.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: She's... eccentric, to put it mildly.
  • Foil: To Chip Whistler. Like Chip, Gwendolyn is the CEO of a major corporation in Big City, is not exactly the most mentally-stable person on the show, and tends to cause problems for the Green family her their efforts to promote their business. Unlike Chip, who is indisputably nasty and corrupt and makes it his life's goal to ruin the Greens while also working to expand Wholesome Foods, Gwendolyn at her core is a kindhearted woman who truly wishes to improve the lives of others with her technology and only causes trouble for the Greens due to her getting so wrapped up in innovating that she overlooks the potential harm her inventions could cause others.
  • Honest Corporate Executive: Unlike Chip Whistler, she has no ulterior motive for her business and seems genuinely determined to use her intellect and company to help people out with new technology.
  • Loon with a Heart of Gold: Though she's got a couple of screws loose, she rarely harbors any ill will to others. Most of the trouble she tends to cause for the Greens via her tech seems more based on how said tech conflicts with their way of life instead of genuine malice on her part.
  • The Mad Hatter: She freely admits that she's nuts but she doesn't seem too upset about it.
  • Nice Girl: Quirkiness aside, Gwendolyn comes off as a rather cheerful and kind-natured lady without a mean bone in her body. In fact, her first encounter with the Green family involved her generously offering them one of her newly-developed cars in exchange for letting her take their old malfunctioning truck off their hands.
  • The Wonka: As one that's head of a tech company, her futuristic products are the main break from the general realism of the show.

    Mayor Hansock 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mayorhansock1.png
The Mayor of Big City
Voiced by: Andy Richter
The eccentric mayor of Big City.
  • Narcissist: His office has several statues of him, which depict him as far more muscular than he actually is.
  • Manchild: He's easily swayed by peer pressure (that is to say, public opinion) and easily frightened by sensationalist news media, outright calling himself "like a child" when one story claims children may be at risk.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Becomes one last minute after the citygoers stand up for the Greens, allowing them to stay in Big City along with cancelling the demolition, and permanently bans Chip.
  • Shamed by a Mob: Just when he thinks of agreeing the house should be destroyed after Cricket loses the proof, all of the Greens' friends and neighbors show up and stand up for them, pleading to him they want the Greens to stay.
  • Slave to PR: He makes decisions based solely on whether or not people will like him for making them.
  • Simpleton Voice: Has a rather high voice courtesy of Andy Richter.

"Whatever, trash butt's funny."
Voiced by: Jenna Ortega

Cricket's equally rambunctious, mischievous girlfriend.


  • Beauty Equals Goodness: Beautiful, fun, and a bit spicy, too. Just look at her image!
  • Birds of a Feather: Shares Cricket's mischievous persona completely spot-on.
  • Chastity Couple: She teases this trope when she tells Cricket she doesn't want to do anything rather serious at the moment when deciding to date him, such as consistent hand holding, sending each other presents and flowers, and smooching nonstop.
  • Distaff Counterpart: She's almost considered enough to be a female version of Cricket, given that she's a troublemaking prankster just like him. She also hates doing chores, shares his blue choice of wardrobe, and her shoes don't match her clothes, similar to his trait of not wearing shoes at all. And given her age, she's not quite used to all that gushy-mushy stuff like him just then.
  • Expy: Her overly sweet Nice Girl nature and outlook are nearly similar to Isabella Garcia-Shapiro, while her "spicy" interior at being a rambunctious troublemaker like Cricket is akin to Ivy Sundew.
  • Foil: The sweet, jovial lucky girl to Gloria.
  • Head-Turning Beauty: Cricket was instantly smitten the moment he first sees her.
  • Just Friends:
    • In her debut, when asking Cricket to dance with her, she only just asked that and nothing else; she wasn't even romantically interested with him in the first place. Averted after she reveals her love for him in her second appearance, when they become an Official Couple.
    • Played straight with Remy; after rejecting Cricket in favor of him, she just wanted to dance with him and be friends; she wasn't romantically interested with him at all.
  • Kids Hate Chores: Something she shares with Cricket. She even admits she's only painting Community Sue's mural because she blabbed a rather mildly offensive word over the intercom the week before.
  • Leitmotif: She gets a twinkly bell theme whenever she and Cricket have a moment with each other, sometimes blending in with the usual banjo music.
  • The Moving Experience: Just as she and Cricket start to bond, she reveals to him she has to leave for Montreal the same day. He thought she was moving there and will never see her again, but to his relief, she's just there for a vacation with her family. She reveals the truth shortly after they become a couple.
  • Multi-Ethnic Name: Her first name is of Italian origin, while her middle and last names are Spanish.
  • Nice Girl: Gabriella is sweet, kind, funny, and a total prankster, just like her boyfriend, Cricket.
  • Official Couple: With Cricket as of "Gabriella's Fella".
  • Pink Means Feminine: Her skin is deep pink.
  • Puppy Love: She is only 10-13 years old, and that doesn't stop her from dating Cricket.
  • Put on a Bus: Subverted. She's not moving to Montreal, she's only visiting for vacation, and returns later. To add to it, she was on a literal bus.
  • Ship Tease: With Cricket in her debut. No longer true after they start dating since Season 2.
  • Tiny Guy, Huge Girl: The huge girl to Cricket's tiny guy, bearing she's only a quarter head higher than he is, about the same height as Tilly.
  • True Blue Femininity: Generally wears light blue.

Voiced by: Monica Ray
Cricket and Tilly's eccentric female friend.
  • Ascended Extra: Played a major role in "Mages & Mazes".
  • Asian and Nerdy: Downplayed. Her surname indicates Japanese heritage, and she is shown to have an interest in gaming and technology, such as Mages & Mazes.
  • Driven to Suicide: Implied to have almost experienced this in "Cyberbullies", when getting hacked by the Cyber Knights one two many causes her to lie in the middle of the road with no will to live.
  • Genki Girl: She's always energetic and excited about things.
  • Pink Girl, Blue Boy: She has bright pink skin while Weezie has dark blue skin.
  • Pink Means Feminine: Her skin is deep pink.

Adults

    Alucard Grigorian 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tumblr258.png
Mr. Grigorian and his cat Anoush
Voiced by: Maurice LaMarche
The Greens' grumpy next-door neighbor who has a rivalry with Gramma Alice.
  • Big Damn Heroes: In "Chipocalypse Now", he was among the people who came to save the house of the Greens from Chip Whistler.
  • Child Hater: He doesn't like children and gone through lengths to make sure Anoush and Tilly didn't reunite. He eventually warmed up to Tilly, but only to her.
  • Expy: He resembles Gomez a lot, although he's not friendly and upbeat like him.
  • Everybody Has Standards: As much of a jerk he is, he was horrifyed when Chip attempted to murder Cricket and later the whole Green family during his Villainous Breakdown.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: More like "Dark Is Not A Jerk". He has an scary appearance and is a jerk, but he's a good person underneath and even helped the Greens to save their home from Chip Whistler.
  • Grumpy Bear: His main outlook.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's a jerk and is unfriendly, but he really loves his cat Anoush and eventually warmed up to Tilly. In "Chipocalypse Now", he was among the people who defended the Greens from Chip Whistler.
  • Kind Hearted Cat Lover: Downplayed; he's by no means a friendly guy, but he ultimately allows Tilly to spend time with his cat Anoush when he sees how much Anoush cares for her.
  • Morality Pet: Anoush is a literal example and later Tilly.
  • Perpetual Frowner: Rarely do you ever see him smile.
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: With Gramma Alice.
  • When He Smiles: The rare moments he smiles, like in the picture above.

    Alexander and Terry 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/f81dcd6b_da0c_4b1d_b00b_32c7d47ccce0.png
Voiced by: John Early (Alexander)
Two guys who are never seen apart.
  • All There in the Script: Alexander's name is not said in the series, only in the credits.
    • It's not until "Spaghetti Theory", in which it's revelated that his name is actually Alexander and is refered as such for the first time in the show.
  • Ambiguously Gay: Their appearances all but state they're a gay couple.
  • Hidden Depths: "Spaghetti Theory" reveals Alexander is into cooking.
  • Masculine–Feminine Gay Couple: Downplayed, it's not a large contrast, but Alexander is slightly more Camp Gay and Terry is Straight Gay.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Alexander is the loud and motormouthed red oni, while Terry is the quiet and collected blue oni. Alexander even wears an orange shirt while Terry wears a blue hoodie; ironically, Alexander is blue while Terry is purple.
  • Silent Partner: Terry is this to Alexander.
  • Straight Gay: The two live in the same apartment. Terry doesn't show stereotypical traits featured with gay men (granted he doesn't show many traits at all) but Alexander is shown to have a rather effeminate voice.
  • Suddenly Speaking: When sticking up for the Green family in "Chipocalypse Now", Terry speaks for the first time as he is actually seen shouting "We want the Greens to stay!" with the other citygoers.
  • The Voiceless: Terry does not speak. Alexander does the speaking for him.

    Brett Eze 
Voiced by: Colton Dunn
A neighbor of the Greens.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: He has not been seen once in Season 2 so far, with his last appearance being "Volunteer Tilly". He does appear on the poster, however, and later returns during "Chipocalypse Now".
  • Trash of the Titans: In "Spagetti Theory", it's revelated that his apartment is BEYOND messy.

    Mr. Whistler 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mrwhistler2.png
Mr. Whistler, Chip Whistler's father.
Voiced by: Ed Begley Jr

The former CEO of Wholesome Foods, and Chip's father.


  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Is completely absent throughout "Chipocalypse Now", with no mention if he ever found out the truth his son is still evil and defied him.
  • Cool Old Guy: To the point of being the complete opposite of his son.
  • Like Father, Unlike Son: A humble Self-Made Man and overall Nice Guy, the complete opposite of his arrogant, spoiled and generally unpleasant son.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: He's pretty much the only one in Big City who's still unaware his son is still evil.
  • Missing Mom: His wife is never seen nor mentioned, aside from a brief snarky comment by Cricket in "Feud Fight". According to Word of God, his wife is dead.
  • Ordered Apology: He has Forgiveness Contracts regularly printed out. Downplayed in that it seems they are just proof of forgiveness rather than forced.
  • Parents as People: He tries to see the good in Chip, but when it becomes clear that his behavior is ruining Wholesome Foods' image and costing them profits, as well as continuing a needless one-sided feud, he's not hesitant to fire him. Then he gives Chip a second chance to make amends with the Greens. Unfortunately, what he doesn't know is that Chip used the Greens' forgiveness to become CEO so he can have the power and resources to run them out of Big City. It's only a matter of time before he finds out what his son has done.
  • Self-Made Man: He started out as a humble farmer before founding Wholesome Foods.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: He looks like an older version of Chip. Sadly, this is the only similarity.

Celebrities

    Maria Media 
Voiced by: Raven-Symoné

A reporter for Channel 11 News.


    Zillon Brax 
Voiced by: Zach Reino

An international pop singer known for bearing an uncanny resemblance to Cricket.


  • The Ditz: It may be because of his sheltered life, but no there's doubt that Zillon is a moron. For starters, he doesn't even know what a refrigerator is (he assumes it's a "trash box"). Zillon even assumes Phoenix is "Grandfather." It's honestly a wonder how Amaryllis never managed to kidnap him before.
  • Eye Take: His and Cricket's reaction toward seeing each other for the first time.
  • Identical Stranger: Looks exactly like Cricket dead-on, minus the darker side-swept hair, smooth teeth and ear piercings.
  • Idiot Savant: He's not quite the brightest bulb on the lamp, but there's a reason he's a famous pop star.
  • Riches to Rags: Disappeared from the public to try and live a normal life. Fortunately, it didn't last long.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: Hasn't been seen since "Impopstar", but his appearance is what allows Cricket to experience fame and following such, realizes his real life is better and gives up, while Zillon decides to go back to his real life of being famous.
  • Tooth Strip: One of very few characters on the show with a completely straight line of teeth.
  • Verbal Tic: He has a habit of singing whatever he says.

Pets

    Anoush 
Mr. Grigorian's Persian cat, who forms a strong bond with Tilly.

  • Morality Pet: Figuratively, and literally, to Mr. Grigorian.
  • Only Friend: He's Mr. Grigorian's only remaining friend after his wife and friends seemingly passed away.

    Snakey 
A Patagonian purple python. He originally belonged to Cricket but due to his impulsiveness, he could not take care of him, so he currently belongs to Remy.

  • Ambiguous Gender: When first introduced, the pet store owner refers to Snakey as a female, but when Cricket shows Snakey to Tilly, Snakey is called male for the rest of the episode and show.
  • Unsuccessful Pet Adoption: Cricket decided to get Snakey due to his belief at a "no think, just do" campaign, but thanks to such, he finds he cannot take care of him properly. Thus he decides he can't own Snakey anymore but since the pet store went out of business, he cannot be taken back; thus he decides to pass Snakey on to the snake expert Remy.
