The family in general

    General 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/vlcsnap_2021_01_20_02h06m52s592_2.png
  • Alphabetical Theme Naming: Most of their names have a short letter I somewhere in them (Cricket, Tilly, Bill, Alice).
  • Color-Coded Characters: Each Green is represented with a different color that appears on their clothes:
    • Cricket: Blue
    • Tilly: Purple
    • Bill: Green
    • Gramma Alice: Lavender
    • Nancy: Black/Pink
  • Country Mouse: Cricket, Tilly, and Bill used to live in the country until they lost their farm, thus they moved to Big City to live with Gramma Alice. Alice herself also qualifies as this, living in solitude until Big City was built around the original Green house. Strangely enough, Bill is the only one of the family that doesn't have a southern accent.
  • Fish out of Water: Cricket, Tilly, and Bill have spent most of their life in the country and are struggling to get adjusted to city life and modern technology. They also don't have any experience with electronic devices.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: Cricket is Sanguine, Tilly is Phlegmatic, Bill is Melancholic, Gramma Alice is Choleric, and Nancy is Eclectic.
  • From Zero to Hero: They start out as off-the-grid nobodies trying to get used to city life. By the time of late Season 2, particularly "Chipocalypse Now", the cityfolk have considered them true heroes to the point they want the Greens to stay permanently, because even though they're not from here, none of that matters as they're true members of the community.
  • Gosh Dang It to Heck!: All of them — mostly Cricket and Bill — are prone to say this often when frustrated.
  • History Repeats: Every generation, the adult members of the family suffer a crisis which makes them think of selling the farm, so the kids have to act up and convince them not to. To date, Bill's generation is the only one that somewhat failed, the farm having been sold to land developers who eventually sold it to city developers, resulting in Big City being built around the farm and is downsized. The current generation is also the first where the house had to be saved more than once, and the first where it's threatened to be destroyed rather than sold.
  • Hopeless with Tech: They've had very little experience with modern technology such as smartphones and laptops, due to living off the grid their whole life. In Season 2, Gloria discovers this weakness and shows them they need to use electronic devices and go social, which in turn is what saves their stand.
  • Out of Focus: In "Reckoning Ball" due to Chip Whistler taking up the spotlight for the episode.
  • Pyrrhic Victory: Even though the kids manage to convince Gramma not to give up hope and save the farm in "Family Legacy", this doesn't mean it will remain invulnerable for long, as it could be destroyed by Chip if they don't fight back.
  • Sweet Home Alabama: They all speak with southern accents (except Bill and his ancestors), and come from a country farm no doubt.
  • Unwitting Pawn: They become this in "Reckoning Ball", not realizing Chip tricked them into forgiving him for his mistakes so he can seize control of Wholesome Foods and further his revenge against them. They find out by the time of "Friend Con".

"Bingo-bango!"
Voiced by: Chris Houghton

An optimistic, happy-go-lucky yet rambunctious country boy who seeks adventures. Normally reckless, impulsive and troublesome, he evolves into a more responsible character as time goes. He's also a determinator and won't back down on his family.

Near the first end of Season 1, he gets a job at Big Coffee and starts bonding with its barista Gloria; following the shutdown of the cafe in Season 2, he no longer works there.


  • Aesop Amnesia: Cricket has learned that he should be more cautious and less quick to rush into things several times, but the lesson seems to have trouble sticking.
  • Ambiguous Disorder: While not stated within the show, Cricket seems to suffer from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder as several episodes depict him as being impulsive and hyperactive and he sometimes strays from important tasks for his own amusement. This is especially relevant in "Quiet Please", as he has an overstimulated brain which prevents him from paying attention and reading, and finds being quiet the hardest thing to do.
  • Animal Theme Naming: He’s named after the insect.
  • Attention Whore: An unusual example; while he is willing to let others in the spotlight, he has a habit of unknowingly drawing attention to himself.
  • A Tragedy of Impulsiveness: In "Cheap Snake", Cricket believes a message from a commercial, "No think, just do", and uses said advice when adopting Snakey and trying to take care of him. Of course, being increasingly impulsive toward whatever Snakey wanted led to complete chaos, and he eventually learns his lesson and gives Snakey to Remy because he's smarter.
  • Berserk Button:
    • He gets very ticked if you deceive him, make him do chores, or who knows what. He's also annoyed if you make him wear shoes, though he grows out of this over the course of the series.
    • DO NOT EVER try to destroy the Green house! This'll make him livid and increasingly determined in protecting his family's beloved legacy 'til the end of time.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Nice and rambunctious as he seems, he does have his limits.
  • Big "NO!": Tends to shout this whenever a plan goes wrong, or if he's just plain ol' frustrated.
    • In "Steak Night", he says one after he accidentally left the package of steaks on the subway platform as the train leaves.
    • In "Supermarket Scandal", he screams this at the end of, and following, the Imagine Spot of the side effects of customers eating the fake produce.
    • His reaction toward the kissing during Kiss of Death in "Rated Cricket".
    • In "Trailer Trouble", he shouts one as the Stingers steal Nancy's trailer.
    • In "Skunked", he shouts a slow-motion one as he is Taking the Bullet for Gloria getting stinked by the skunks.
    • In "Bad Influencer", he screams this as he jumps for Remy to stop him from paying for Itchaboi's cruise.
    • In "Green Christmas", he screams one as he is dragged out of Hudkins after the Mall Santa pronounces him naughty.
    • In "Chipocalypse Now", he and Tilly shout one in unison when they see Chip destroy Big Coffee and the apartment complex, and when Nancy is getting arrested again.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: Unlike his family's eyebrows, his visible eyebrows are notably thick.
  • Blue Is Heroic: He wears a blue shirt and overalls.
  • Butt-Monkey: Best shown in most of the series shorts, where he was either floated away by a swarm of ducks, stung by a bee, or clawed by the cat, while in "Cheap Snake", he was stung by a scorpion that he found on the ground.
  • Cannot Talk to Women: Suffered this massively around Gabriella. Averted after they started dating.
  • Catchphrase: "Bingo-bango!" note 
  • Character Development:
    • Cricket has become more responsible and mature as the series went, with a few morals he learned carrying over to future episodes.
    • Cricket's encounters with Chip have changed based on their encounters. He first starts treating him like a recurring arch-nemesis, then he stops taking him seriously and sees him as a joke to everyone else, and following his seizure of Big Coffee, he now treats him like a full-on threat to the family.
    • Following his encounter with John in "Flimflammed", Cricket's Chessmaster skills have become improved and almost easy to fall for; although he did scam a few times before, he learned what to say to whoever he's scamming, and used that knowledge to perfect his swindling in future episodes ("Chipwrecked", for example).
    • Initially, Cricket showed a dislike of shoes, but was willing to wear them on occasion. Starting in Season 2, he begins to wear shoes with different outfits more often, befitting his maturing; "Bat Girl" is the first instance in which he wears shoes for the entire duration of the episode.
  • Child-Like Voice: Inverted; he's a child with a nasally voice that's a lot lower than that of any child.
  • Comically Missing the Point: Tends to fail to see the real meaning behind things.
    • In "Cricket's Kapowie", he mistakenly thinks the "kapowie" Donny says he's got is in his hair (after he calls it his "statement piece"), resulting in him freaking out when he gets a Gag Haircut.
    • In the Random Rings short "Telemarketer Calls the Greens", he and Tilly mishear a telemarketing call of "going solar" as getting superpowers from the sun. Thankfully, Gramma managed to see the truth.
  • Costume Evolution: Starts wearing shoes with different outfits more often in Season 2, befitting his maturing and Character Development.
  • Demoted to Extra:
    • Tends to play the role of a side character or subplot focus in episodes where Tilly is the main focus, such as "Forbidden Feline", "Volunteer Tilly" and "Tilly Style".
    • He doesn't have that much of a focus in "Reckoning Ball" due to Chip taking up the spotlight for the episode. He also disappears before the final scene to build up for what Chip does.
    • In "Time Crisis", he is demoted to Deuteragonist territory due to the episode largely focusing on Remy. Same goes for "Elevator Action" when the spotlight is given to Gloria.
  • Determinator: He's ready to relentlessly take on any challenge or task with a die-hard spirit. Even when his fellow family members are ready to succumb to despair in a bad situation, Cricket absolutely refuses to throw in the towel, which both Tilly and Remy have stated is his best quality. This trait is even extended into "Cyberbullies", in which he was the only one of his friendship circle who was not afraid of the Cyber Knights, and was willing to do anything to take them down. And in "Chipocalypse Now" he rallies his family to not back down and protect their home from Chip's wrecking crew, just like how their ancestors did in the past.
  • Did Not Get the Girl: In "Valentine's Dance", he loses his chance to dance with Gabriella thanks to comically avoiding her throughout. Averted in "Gabriella's Fella" though, when he successfully wins her.
  • Didn't Think This Through: He regularly fails to consider the consequences of his plans. This is lampshaded in "Gramma Driver".
    Cricket: I can't believe that yet again, my actions have had consequences!
  • Does Not Like Shoes: He hardly ever wears shoes, and when he does, he hates it. Exceptions would be his Zillon Brax getup and his winter gear, the latter which requires such since his bare feet wouldn't even stand the cold. However, he's begun to wear shoes more frequently in Season 2.
  • Does Not Like Spam: He doesn't like zucchini. Although he did eat it for several days in "Tilly Style," Cricket just can't say he likes it.
  • Drill Sergeant Nasty: Turned into this in "Backflip Bill" when trying to prove Gramma wrong, which ironically made him act just like her.
  • Earthy Barefoot Character: As a farm boy to the core, he mostly likes to walk around barefooted and gripes when he's forced to wear shoes.
  • Failed a Spot Check: All his early childhood, he had no idea Tilly and "Jilly" were the same person.
  • Farm Boy: Spot the overalls and him being barefooted.
  • Fatal Flaw: As the series stretches on, it becomes apparent that Cricket inherited both his mother's impulsiveness and his father's stubbornness, which can be quite the troublesome mix. Cricket often tends to act without thinking (even claiming in "Cheap Snake" that the first idea is always the best idea), and when his friends call out his plans as being bad ideas, he usually tends to double down on them instead of changing course until they inevitably blow up in his face.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: Cricket and Gloria slowly become friends over the course of the first season.
  • Flanderization: To begin with, Cricket caused trouble mostly due to being impulsive and/or naive to the ways of the city. In season 2, he starts to have moments of knowingly causing trouble, either for his own benefit (such as in "Wishing Well") or for his own amusement ("Shark Objects" and "Dream Weaver").
  • Flat-Earth Atheist: "Garage Tales" reveals that Cricket is a flat-earther.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: The foolish sibling to Tilly's responsible.
  • Friend to All Living Things: While not to the same extent as Tilly, Cricket cares for all the animals on the farm. When Gloria calls them "filthy disgusting monsters" in "Critterball Crisis", Cricket's first response is an outraged "How dare you".
  • Full-Name Ultimatum: If addressed by his full name, it's ultimately serious business.
  • Given Name Reveal: "Bleeped" reveals Cricket's middle name is Ernest, which is the same name as his late grandfather.
  • Good Is Not Dumb: He tends to fall into this depending on the episode. Best examplified in "Bad Influencer", as he was the only one who did not fall for Itchaboi and saw right through him.
  • Hairstyle Inertia: He had the same hairdo since his birth, which slightly changed its appearance with each age.
  • The Hero: He's the central character of the show.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Remy.
  • High-Dive Escape: Pulls one in the climax of "Chipocalypse Now", to avoid facing a Family-Unfriendly Death by Chip's helicopter.
  • Hopeless with Tech: Due to living off the grid in the country for his entire childhood, Cricket has almost zero experience with modern technology. This is best exampled in "Coffee Quest" when he tried to call Tilly on Gloria's phone, but he didn't know how to turn it on and "do numbers". In "Cyberbullies", this weakness surprisingly prevents him from being hacked by the Cyber Knights, due to having no electronics to begin with.
  • Horned Hairdo: Not deliberately, but whenever his hair is hanging when upside-down or pushed up, the curved center portion resembles devil horns, befitting his mischievous nature. It's especially noticeable when he puts it up in a sweatband in "Backflip Bill".
  • Hypocrite:
    • In "Harvest Dinner", he and Gramma are livid when Bill asks Tilly to buy paprika for his stew instead of them, despite seconds earlier, neither of them wanted to do it.
    • In "Green Streets". He insists that Officer Keys punish the litterer far more severely than necessary, claiming that said litterer was a "danger" to the city, and shouldn't be let off so easily. When he discovers that he was the litterer all along, Cricket immediately changes his mind, saying that he shouldn't be so harshly punished for his actions.
  • Ink-Suit Actor: His appearance is based on Chris Houghton as a child, especially the bowl-cut hair.
  • In-Universe Nickname: He calls himself "Crickey". Tilly also calls him "Brother".
  • It's All About Me: Has a tendency to only care about what he wants, depending on the episode.
  • It's All My Fault: His feud with Chip was the reason Big Coffee got shut down, and he and Gloria lost their jobs. Naturally, if it weren't for his and the Greens' "advice" in "Reckoning Ball", and if Cricket didn't sign that forgiveness contract in the first place, Chip wouldn't have become CEO and took over the cafe. It is by "Big Resolution" Cricket owns up and feels really sorry for what he did.
  • Jerkass Ball:
    • In the Christmas Episode when he is pronounced naughty by the Mall Santa, having him resort to naughty pranks because, as he puts it, if he can't have Christmas, then nobody will. He learns his lesson afterwards.
    • In "Animation Abomination", he's again at his worst, trying to make sure his finale for "The Kindom Of Lore" be done like he wants, doesn't matter if it makes no sense for the series.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: As self-centered and stubborn as he can be, on the other hand, he's ultimately a good kid who just wants to make things better.
  • Keet: He's full of energy.
  • Kids Hate Chores: He completely despises chores, but depending on the episode, he is willing to do them.
  • More Than Mind Control: When in his feral state due to not going into the wild on one certain day a year, he is able to manipulate his family into becoming feral like him by their own will.
  • Miles Gloriosus: Cricket has a habit of rushing into things and biting off more than he can chew out of bluster and overconfidence.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: He gets this reaction whenever he realizes he messed up, such as in "Welcome Home", "Steak Night", "Tilly's Goat" and "Critterball Crisis".
  • Near-Death Experience: Suffered a handful of these:
    • In "Steak Night", he was almost run over by the subway train when fighting over the family steak with the bomb squad robot.
    • In "Blood Moon", he was almost Eaten Alive by the zombified farm animals.
    • In "Shark Objects", he was almost harpooned by the lifeguard.
    • In "Hurt Bike", he almost crashed into a building on the dirt bike, rendering him totally fearful for the episode.
    • In "Chipocalypse Now", he was almost killed by the blades of Chip's helicopter, twice. He managed to jump to safety for the first time, while a Fatal Flaw prevented the second.
  • Nice, Mean, and In-Between: The mean (mischievous, rambunctious) to Tilly's nice and Remy's in-between. He has his good moments as well, and slowly evolves into nice territory as the series goes.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: In "Feud Fight", while attempting to drive Chip Whistler out of the food market, he winds up destroying the other stands.
  • Nobody Touches the Hair: In "Paint Misbehavin'", Gloria fixes a strand of his hair that is sticking up. This is followed by Cricket calmly, but firmly, asking that she never touches his hair again.
  • No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: Some of the actions he performs lead to rather dire consequences.
  • No Indoor Voice: According to "Quiet Please", being quiet is extremely hard for him to do.
  • No Social Skills: He's sociable, but with most of his standards that he inherited from living in the farm, he doesn't seem to fit in well with others in the city.
  • Official Couple: With Gabriella as of "Gabriella's Fella".
  • Only Sane Man: While he seems insane most of the time, there are some exceptions. For example, in "Bad Influencer", he was the only one who didn't give into Itchaboi's absurd messages.
  • Out-of-Character Moment: Cricket usually hates doing chores; however, he is shown doing them without hesitation on occasion. One time he willingly wanted to help Bill renovate the bathroom while Tilly and Gramma were away, and when Chip destroyed the roof, he actually asked Bill to help him fix it. Also when replanting the carrots Chip ruined, he helped replant them without any complaints.
  • Pint-Sized Kid: He's the shortest member of the family.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: With Gloria.
  • Pre Ass Kicking One Liner: In "Chipocalypse Now" when he immediately sees a Fatal Flaw in Chip's attempt to kill his family, he faces him down and shouts, "COME AND GET ME, CHICKEN!"
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Red to Tilly's blue; he's always hyperactive and rambunctious.
  • Running on All Fours: When in wild mode, he walks on all fours like an animal.
  • Saying Sound Effects Out Loud: When winking, he might often say "Wink!".
  • Seven Deadly Sins: His major issues are wrath, sloth, and pride, especially the latter two.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: He's the goofy and mischievous sibling compared to his calmer sister Tilly.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: Becomes one in "Bleeped" after learning a strange but offensive word from Gramma, which eventually passes on to the others.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Cricket's yellow skin and light brunette hair came from his father, while his mussy and draping hairstyle came from his mother. His bucktooth may also be an inverted holdover from his mother's Childish Tooth Gap when she was younger.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: Once a year, Cricket undergoes "the itch", aka a wild side, where he loses control of himself and acts like an animal boy from the jungle. Only a trip into the woods can calm him down.
  • Temporarily a Villain:
    • Briefly sides with Gramma as the "swamp witch" in "Urban Legend" because he thinks it's fun to scare people. However, he soon realizes Gramma's antics turned the townsfolk against her, and takes it back.
    • In "Green Christmas", he temporarily becomes a rather naughty villain when the Mall Santa pronounces him naughty and he thinks he's just that.
  • Tiny Guy, Huge Girl: He's the tiny guy to Gabriella's huge girl.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Honestly, how does Cricket manage to survive throughout the series? The kid has the survival skills of a frickin' lemming. Seeing as how it's Disney though...
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: In Season 2, he becomes slightly more reckless and impulsive than he was in the first season, to the point of scamming, lying, and even becoming prideful.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Likewise with Character Development as mentioned above, Cricket has become a nicer and more responsible character as the series went, becoming more selfless and mature with each new lesson learned.
  • Uncanny Family Resemblance: Cricket bares a shocking resemblance to his ancestor, Bixby.
  • Unstoppable Rage: Fail to take him camping properly on the one day of the year he gets a wild urge, and he'll grow so furious he becomes feral.
  • Vague Age: Cricket appears to be at least ten, which is the age he is stated to be in the premises.
  • Vocal Dissonance: He has a very clearly adolescent/young adult voice despite being a child.
  • Vocal Evolution: Cricket's voice got slightly higher pitched than it was originally near the last third of S1, starting with "Blood Moon".
  • What Is This Feeling?: In "Valentine's Dance" when he discovers love for the first time, and in "Hurt Bike" when he fearfully finds himself thinking before doing.
  • Who Names Their Kid "Dude"?: While it's fitting considering his love of the outdoors, naming your child after an insect is still a bit unusual.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: In "Hiya Henry", Cricket is revealed to suffer from severe automatonophobia, the fear of ventriloquist dummies.
  • Wild Child: Once every year, he becomes this for unknown reasons. Bill's solution? Take him camping and let him roam free to let out all the wildness in him. Unfortunately for Bill, because they are now in the city, there's nowhere to camp and results in Cricket going crazy. This would've been avoided if Bill just took him out of the city into the woods as tradition.
  • You No Take Candle: He talks this way when in wild mode.

"I have seen danger...and I love it."
Voiced by: Marieve Herington

Cricket's kooky but more level-headed older sister who often joins him on his misadventures.


  • Absentee Actor: She is completely absent throughout "Date Night", whereas she is only seen in the Imagine Spot in "Time Crisis". She doesn't appear in much of the shorts as well.
  • Actual Pacifist: In "Winner Winner", she finds herself in a boxing match, and refuses to throw even a single punch at her opponent, due to not wanting to hurt anyone. She instead dodges every blow, resulting in a Victory by Endurance.
  • Art Evolution: Her appearance underwent a slight redesign following her transition into Cool Big Sis territory; specifically her mouth movements are more traditional instead of flapping up and down like a Muppet, and her eyes have gotten slightly smaller.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Do not cross this girl if you know what's good for you. She was so annoyed by Cricket's singing fish Barry Cuda, she joined her dad and grandma in destroying it by using a lawnmower. When she mistakenly believes her Gramma destroyed her beloved sack toy (Nancy did it by accident while trying to clean said toy), she swore to turn Alice's life into a waking nightmare as vengeance.
    Tilly: You know, Mama, death is an undeniable part of life. But murder must be avenged. The one who did this will NOT be forgiven.
  • Characterization Marches On: In the early episodes, she acted more like a little child despite being the older sister, and didn't seem to be silly that much and wasn't that much of a talker in the first episode (due to most of her dialogue going to Remy when he was originally the deuteragonist). As of now, she's rather goofy and creative, and her appearance and voice mark her a little older, acting more as a Cool Big Sis.
  • Child-Like Voice: She originally sounded like a baby girl in the early episodes, until she underwent Vocal Evolution and transitioned into a Cool Big Sis.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: She's a very out-there girl.
  • Compelling Voice: She can subconsciously tell people to do what she says in an echoing voice, like in "Sellouts". She also has Hypnotic Eyes.
  • Cool Big Sis: She's very supportive of Cricket and often gives him advice. She evolves into this by the end of the first season along with Vocal Evolution.
  • Cool Shades: She wears these when pretending to be Jilly.
  • Costume Evolution: Downplayed, but since "Tilly Style", she has had earrings added to her usual outfit, to reflect her maturity as the Cool Big Sis. Of course, this is only noticeable in scenes when her ears are exposed, but whenever they are, Tilly's new earrings are always there.
  • Creepy Child: In some of her weirder moments. For example, she once scared the crap out of Nancy by telling a story about Nancy trapped in a series of ever-shrinking rooms after just previously stating "She's not good at scaring others."
  • The Cuckoolander Was Right: Her spaghetti theory, where the lives of the Big Citygoers can twist and intertwine with each other's actions, is always correct.
  • Deuteragonist: She's the second major focus of the show following Cricket.
  • Dissonant Serenity: She often manages to keep her calm and cheerful demeanor when she and her family are in a dangerous situation.
  • Early Installment Weirdness:
    • In "Space Chicken", she was shown to sleep during the day; that was no longer acknowledged or referred to for the rest of the series.
    • She was surprisingly not very talkative in "Space Chicken", as that was produced as a pilot back when her role as the Deuteragonist was originally meant for Remy.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: The responsible sibling to Cricket's foolish.
  • Forgotten Phlebotinum: Tilly hasn't used her Hypnotic Eyes before, or since "Sellouts", aside from the endcard for the Random Rings short "Tilly Calls a Library".
  • Friend to All Living Things: Managed to befriend the subway rats in "Steak Night". She's also able to determine the family goat's desire to be a dog, as well as recognize and list off the names of the family dog's fleas in "Tilly's Goat". She is utterly horrified at Bill's zeal at playing a "whack-a-mole" game in "Present Tense". "Sellouts" even reveals the farm animals are personally connected to her and run right to her once she's present.
  • Hairstyle Inertia: Like her brother, Tilly had the same bob haircut her whole life from the start.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Andromeda.
  • Holding Both Sides of the Conversation: Whenever she has a "conversation" with Saxon. This extends to inner dialogue.
  • Hollywood Genetics: Her father, brother, and grandmother (in her youth, at least) all have brown hair (and her mother has red hair), yet she has black hair. Though, her grandfather on her mother's side had black hair.
  • Hopeless with Tech: In some ways. When she got a smartphone in "Gramma Driver", she instantly tries to destroy it upon believing its assistant is the spirit of someone trapped within, and tries to "free" such.
    • Before that, she managed to edit together Bill's GROUT instructional video.
  • Hypnotic Eyes: Can hypnotize people by increased eye contact, as shown in "Sellouts".
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: Or more specifically, a best friend like what Cricket has with Remy in "Gargoyle Gals".
  • In-Universe Nickname: She's often called "Til" by Cricket. Nancy also calls her "Tilly girl".
  • Kind Hearted Cat Lover: While it's kind of a given due to her status as a Friend to All Living Things, she seems to have a particular affinity towards cats. Most prominently displayed in the shorts "Tilly's Cats" and "Secret Cat".
  • Meaningful Name: Her name is German for "mighty in battle", showing she's the more responsible one of the family and is always watching out for her brother.
  • Morality Pet: She serves as this to Cricket. Cricket unwittingly hurting Tilly's feelings or crushing her dreams because of his own selfishness is one of the most reliable things that'll cause him to have an attack of conscience in the series ("Wishing Well", "Green Christmas").
  • Nice Girl: One of the friendliest and amiable characters on the series.
  • Nice, Mean, and In-Between: The nice (silly, honest, kind) to Cricket's mean and Remy's in-between.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: She's got a benign dark side to her, such as enjoying her cramped tent with Nancy after delivering a claustrophobic horror story, wanting to bury someone alive at the beach, and appreciating Amaryllis's messed-up Stalker Shrine. That said, it's downplayed as she clearly doesn't enjoy all things messed up and scary.
  • Only Sane Man: Though she mostly seems to be quite the opposite, there are some exceptions:
    • Surprisingly, in "Blue Tater", where she's the only one in the family that doesn't give in to the superstition behind the blue potato.
    • Also in "Green Christmas", she was the only one who truly understood the True Meaning of Christmas.
    • In "Quiet Please", she was the only Green who didn't get in trouble with the librarian and remained silent the entire time.
    • In "Bleeped", she was the only child who never cusses.
  • Parental Title Characterization: Unlike Cricket, she always refers to her parents as Papa and Mama.
  • Psychic Link: Uses one with Melissa to find out what's wrong with her, and one with the three baby birds to find them trapped in the garbage truck. She tried to form one with Andromeda, but was unsuccessful.
  • The Quiet One: In "Space Chicken", she was surprisingly not as talkative as Remy, as that was when she was originally envisioned as a minor character before becoming the Deuteragonist. Now she talks more often, in addition to Vocal Evolution, and has evolved into a Cool Big Sis.
  • Raven Hair, Ivory Skin: Has black hair and her skin is a paler yellow compared to her family's tone. Her skin tone may just be because she stays out of the sun compared to the rest of her family (when Bill is shown with a farmer's tan, his untanned parts are fairly pale).
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Blue to Cricket's red; she's more calm than her brother and sometimes controlling.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: Compared to Cricket, she's a little more mature and understanding.
  • Speaks Fluent Animal: She's shown to be able to understand and communicate with animals.
  • Suddenly Bilingual:
    • The episode "Quiet Please" shows she's surprisingly fluent in American Sign Language, which she teaches her family to avoid talking and facing the librarian's wrath.
    • "The Van" shows she can speak fluent Japanese.
  • Tender Tomboyishness, Foul Femininity: The innocent tender tomboyishness to Cantaloupe Sinclare's foul femininity.
  • Token Good Teammate: In "Bat Girl" when the Sue-Zers start to go jerky thanks to Nancy, Tilly is the only one of the team who does not torment the Elites verbally or physically, instead siccing a butterfly after a player, given her pacifism.
  • '20s Bob Haircut: Her usual hairstyle.
  • Unaffected by Spice: At the beginning of "Tilly Tour", she eats an entire mouthful of red hot candies without any effects.
  • Uncanny Family Resemblance: Tilly bares a shocking resemblance to her great-great-aunt Metrona.
  • Unstoppable Rage: Destroy Saxon, and face severe rage from her.
  • Vague Age: Tilly acts like she's at least eleven.
  • Vocal Evolution: Tilly's voice sounds noticeably deeper from the last third of Season 1 on.
  • "Well Done, Daughter!" Girl: She wants nothing more than for her father to see her as a responsible babysitter in "Cricketsitter".
  • Youthful Freckles: Which she inherited from her mother.

"Listen, kids, I know it's been difficult adjustin' to city life, but we've got neighbors to consider now."
Voiced by: Bob Joles, Andre Robinson (young self in "Green's Acres")

A farmer, Gramma Alice's son, and Cricket and Tilly’s father.


  • Acrofatic: He might not be in great shape, but in "Backflip Bill", he was able to pull off a few somersaults before losing his balance at the very end.
  • Adult Fear:
    • For unexplained reasons he lost his farm — both his home and source of income. So he has to move in with his mom, otherwise he and his kids would be on the streets.
    • He was undeniably horrified when he saw Cricket about to be killed by Chip's helicopter atop the megastore in "Chipwrecked"; good thing he managed to catch him once he jumped off (and cried that somebody had better catch him).
  • Amicably Divorced: He still gets along with Nancy despite the two being divorced. The fact that they were friends before they were a couple no doubt helps.
    • In "Urban Legend", he seems to have a habit of referring to Nancy as his "ex-wife" in public.
  • Armor-Piercing Question/Armor-Piercing Response: Tends to give either or to Cricket, which in turn causes his son to realize his mistake and eventually learn the moral for the episode.
  • Break the Haughty: He undergoes this trope in "DIY Guys". Bill prides himself on being self-reliant and not asking for help, but when he goes to a hardware store, it's too big and confusing for him to find what he's looking for, and he steadfastly refuses to ask the employees for help finding it. Eventually, he is forced to ask for help when a shelf full of toilets threatens to fall on him.
  • Butt-Monkey: At times. Having to take care of two rambunctious kids and a cantankerous elderly mother can do that.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: "Greens Acres" reveals that he first met Nancy when they were kids, forming a friendship that would later blossom into romance (at least until they divorced).
  • Comical Angry Face: Or "the disappointed face", as Tilly puts it. He makes a more frightening one with Blank White Eyes in "Bleeped".
  • Country Mouse: In "Fill Bill", he pretends to be a real native of Big City by ordering seafood so he doesn't look like someone from the country. This soon unravels when he feels so uncomfortable with fancy dining, he reasserts that he moved from the country to Big City, proving that even though he moved to Big City, he's no city slicker.
  • Desperately Looking for a Purpose in Life: It happens to him twice. In "Level Up", he becomes addicted to a farm simulation video game because he's frustrated with the limited amount of space he has at the real farm, while at the same time, neglecting his real crops, the source of his family's income. In "I, Farmbot", he finds himself unable to figure out what to do with his free time after Cricket buys a robot to do all the chores around the farm and gets worse when Cricket tries to teach him how to relax only to turn him into a couch potato instead.
  • Exhausted Eye Bags: He has small bags under his eyes, fitting his age. It's also probably to put up with the stress of Cricket and Tilly's antics.
  • Farm Boy: A grown-up version; even though he moves from the farm to the Green family homestead (which is still a farm in the middle of the Big City), he still grows crops and drives a pick-up truck.
  • Fatal Flaw: He has two.
    • While Bill is usually a level-headed man and the voice of reason in the family, he tends to be very self-conscious about his place in the city and his place in the family, and his self-doubt leads him to make rash and unwise decisions, like pretending to be something he's not in "Fill Bill", trying to work two jobs at once in "Night Bill" because he's worried he's not providing well enough for his kids, or putting the whole family in danger in "Blood Moon" because he was worried the kids were outgrowing him.
    • Ironically, Bill can also be very prideful when it comes to his life skills, and having his pride challenged leads him to double down and become as stubborn as Cricket ("Racooned", "DIY Guys").
  • Fingore: The top part of his right index finger had been severed by a hay baler at some point prior to the series' events.
  • For Want of a Nail: "Greens' Acres" revealed Bill himself is responsible for Big City being built around the Green house in the first place. Bill feels sorry, but Gramma is proud he did that.
  • Good Parents: He always acts lovingly towards his kids, works hard to provide a good life for them, and tries his best to raise them right.
  • Gosh Dang It to Heck!: Tends to slip into this nearly every episode, usually when frustrated.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: In "Animal Farm", Bill meets another farmer named Bill Green, who's younger than him, dresses just like him, is a lot thinner than he is, and is considerably more financially successful. The more it seems like the other man’s life is perfect in every way, the more blatantly jealous Bill becomes of his counterpart and actually goes to confront him about it, until the other man points out the biggest difference between them - Bill has a large, loving family that's always supporting him - which gives Mr. Green a timely reminder of the things that are truly important in his life.
  • Identical Grandson: Bill looks exactly like both his unnamed maternal grandfather and great-grandfather (Archibald).
  • Idiot Ball: Suffers this big time in "Wild Side". He gives Cricket a makeshift camping trip in the backyard on the day he gets his "itch", rather than just take him out of the city into the woods as tradition. As a result, Cricket becomes feral.
  • Large Ham: He tends to be one of the more emotional members of his family, and he can be very dramatic when he's upset about something:
    Bill: Oh, this is bad! If we can't get them vermin out of our house, we may not even have a house! We'll have to live out in the garage, AND THAT'S WHERE THE RACCOONS LIVED!
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: The soft-spoken feminine boy to Nancy's masculine girl.
  • My Greatest Failure: During the flashback, in "Backflip Bill", he gave up gymnastics after being pressured by Alice. She wanted him to be a winner, but all he wanted was to have fun. He quit right before the competition.
  • Nervous Wreck: He can be rather high-strung. In the early episodes, Bill was prone to a good freak out from the stress of losing his farm, wrangling two mischievous kids, being around confined spaces, and trying to navigate around a city he knew nothing about.
  • Nice Guy: For all his faults, he's an honest, hardworking farmer who enjoys living a simple life, and a courteous, humble, goofy guy that loves his family.
  • Nice Hat: He's rarely ever seen without his red trucker's hat (which he flips during his Let's Get Dangerous! moments), and several episodes like "Night Bill" imply that it's a part of his country boy identity.
  • Nice, Mean, and In-Between: The responsible and bumbling nice to Gramma's mean and Nancy's in-between.
  • Not So Above It All: Bill often serves as the voice of reason in the household, trying to keep the kids and his mother out of trouble, but there have been several episodes where he's wholeheartedly joined in the family's silly antics like "Dinner Party", "Big Deal", "Mansion Madness" and "Cricket's Biscuits".
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: In "Bill-iever", he pretends to be freaked out by the sight of an alien invasion to convince Cricket into confessing the truth behind the scooter accident.
  • Only Sane Man: He's generally had to be the only responsible one that had to put things in order while dealing with a rather dysfunctional family.
  • Papa Wolf: He will do anything he can to protect his kids and his mother from any danger; even if it means going along with one of Cricket's schemes.
  • Parents as People: Bill works hard to provide a stable life for his kids, and tries to set a good example for them. He's also made his share of mistakes and learned from them, like lying to his kids in "Photo Op" and "Blood Moon", or letting his pride get in the way of his better judgment in "Racooned" and "DIY Guys".
  • Profanity Police: He is absolutely against profanity, especially after Cricket starts using such in "Bleeped" and passes it on to the other children except for Tilly, and repeatedly warns him yet he doesn't listen (keep in mind the show uses Unusual Euphemism). He ultimately comes to the conclusion he cannot control what Cricket says, and tells him he's free to cuss but has to decide if that's the person he wants to be.
  • Real Men Cook: As a produce farmer and a single father of many years, Bill is shown to be a great cook, and he's more of a perfectionist in the kitchen than his ex-wife in "Harvest Dinner".
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Often plays this role for Cricket and sometimes Tilly, on the resolving end of their conflicts and comes up with the moral of the episode and what to do.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Blue to Gramma Alice's red; he's more calm and serious, while Gramma is cranky and cynical.
  • Sanity Slippage: In "Bill-Liever", Cricket convinces him that aliens are real to get himself out of trouble, and Bill does not handle the world-shattering revelation well, causing his mental health to take a very sharp decline the next day out of panic, paranoia and obsession. After having a complete breakdown about alien invaders, Bill claims it was all an act to smoke out Cricket's lies, but it's pretty clear he was lying to save face.
  • Tranquil Fury: Played for laughs in "Bill-Liever". Bill is not happy in the slightest to discover Cricket wrecked his garden, destroyed his mother's scooter, and repeatedly lied to him about it, but he's also not surprised, since he suspected as much all along, and his anger runs cold for a change. With an uncanny and almost uncharacteristic calm, Bill goes to give Cricket a message and lets him know in a dead monotone to expect one heck of a punishment the following day, making his lying son squirm in his bed the entire time.
  • Took a Level in Dumbass: Notoriously in "Wild Side", when he failed to take Cricket out to the woods in order to vent out his inner feral, only to having them out in the own backyard and having to let Cricket loose and having to be mentally brainwashed into listening what Cricket tells him to freed of.
  • Ugly Guy, Hot Wife: While Bill is not ugly by any means, he has a portly figure, is missing the top half of his right index finger, and is all-in-all quite average looking. In contrast to his more slimmer and prettier ex-wife Nancy.
  • Uncanny Family Resemblance: Bill bares a shocking resemblance to his ancestor, Jerome.
  • Unfulfilled Purpose Misery: Turns out being a farmer is the only thing that gives him purpose. In "Level Up", he became addicted to a farm simulation game because his current property is too small for him to expand. When a robot did all his work for him in "Farmbot", Bill found himself with so much free time and no way to know what to do with himself. It got worse when Cricket taught him to relax and he became a couch potato.
  • Wacky Parent, Serious Child: He's the serious child to Alice's wacky parent.
  • Will They or Won't They?: It's often teased that he might or might not get back together with Nancy.

"How dare you trespass on my property!"
Voiced by: Artemis Pebdani

Tilly and Cricket's grandmother and Bill's mother who is the matriarch of the Green family.


  • Abusive Parents: She frequently verbally abuses and pressures Bill. "Backflip Bill" shows us that the poor guy has some deep-seated trauma because of this.
  • Art Evolution: Late into Season 1, whenever her dentures are taken out, her lips now sag, some type of technique the show didn't have when she first took them out in "Gramma's License".
  • Artificial Limbs: Gramma has a prosthetic right leg.
  • Badass Driver: She was a race car driver back in the day and is able to maneuver her way out of a demolition derby in "Gramma's License".
  • Big Damn Heroes: In "Shark Objects", she shows up just in time to save Cricket from being killed by the lifeguard.
  • Black Bead Eyes: How she looks without her glasses on.
  • Blind Without 'Em: Cannot see well without her glasses.
  • Child Hater: With the exception of her grandchildren (and occasionally Remy), she can't stand being around children.
  • Cool Old Lady: To the point where she can keep up with the likes of Cricket.
  • Elderly Blue-Haired Lady: Has blue hair and is elderly. When younger, she was a brunette.
  • Fatal Flaw: Pride. Whenever someone tells her she can't do something (usually due to her age), she becomes twice as determined to do it, and equally adamant about doing it without help, which often leads to trouble.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: She's convinced doctors and dentists are all snake oil salespeople. In "Hurty Tooth", she claims the affable, pleasant Dr. Enamel is "evil".
  • Hypocrite: One of her bigger flaws.
    • In "Harvest Dinner", she and Cricket are livid when Bill asks Tilly to buy paprika for his stew instead of them, despite seconds earlier, neither of them wanted to do it.
    • She looks down on Nancy for being a convicted criminal, yet she herself has indulged in arrest-worthy acts such as stealing, destroying property, and even assaulting people whenever her mood is foul enough.
    • In "Axin' Saxon", she scoffed at Tilly's attachment to Saxon. Nancy then pointed out that she treated her sword much the same way.
  • I Have No Son!: Played for Laughs in "People Watching", where she threatens to disown Bill if he messes up his story again.
  • I Was Quite the Looker: Gramma looked quite attractive back when she was younger with a round cute face and a full shapely body.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Even despite her bitterness to nearly everyone, she’ll still display a bittersweet character to the people she cares about.
  • Mama Bear: The tough-as-nails, no-nonsense matriarch of the family, who uses her wiles to prod Cricket into earning his place among the Green family. Also, God help you if you dare threaten her son or grandchildren, she becomes a wrathful and unstoppable force of nature who will make sure you pay for messing with her family.
  • Miniature Senior Citizens: She's no taller than her granddaughter Tilly.
  • Multiple-Choice Past: In "Greens Acres". While admonishing Bill for nearly losing a finger to the hay baler.
    Alice: Do you know how badly you coulda been hurt? How do you think I lost my leg?
    Bill: I don't know, the story keeps changing!
  • Mysterious Past: She claims to have led an extremely adventurous life when she was younger, but we never know how much of it is actually true. "Garage Tales" heavily implies that most of her stories are nothing but hot air, though she does appear to have a genuine war flashback in "Present Tense". Her fighting, driving, and trap-building skills also indicate some form of experience.
  • Never Mess with Granny: She’s never afraid to weld a sword against anyone who tries to interfere with her. She also mentions in "Steak Night" that she was in a war where she ate sawdust.
  • Nice, Mean, and In-Between: The brash and hard-headed mean to Bill's nice and Nancy's in-between.
  • "Not So Different" Remark: In "Valentine's Dance", she objects to Nancy being a chaperone at the dance, claiming that Nancy is stubborn, does whatever she wants, and never listens to anyone but herself. Nancy admits that that does sound like her, but points out that it sounds like Alice, too.
  • Obnoxious In-Laws: She can be this toward Nancy at times. During Nancy and Bill's wedding, she loudly voiced her objection to the marriage.
  • Only Sane Man: In "Reckoning Ball", she was the only Green who stayed suspicious when the Greens are signing Chip's forgiveness contract, knowing he's secretly up to something. She's right.
  • Parents as People: Her husband apparently passed away while Bill was still a young boy, leaving Alice the tasks of trying to raise Bill and manage the farm on her own. While it's clear she did her best, having to handle both on her own wasn't easy and there were times she had to prioritize the farm over watching Bill. This is what ultimately led to her deciding to sell some of the farmland, to give her less work and more time to focus on Bill.
  • Perpetual Frowner: Rarely smiles.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Red to Bill's blue; she's the most abrasive one of the house next to Nancy.
  • Screw Politeness, I'm a Senior!: She can be quite the rude old woman.
  • Secret Test of Character: She tells Cricket that he has to be cunning and clever to earn his place among the Green family, and occasionally practices tough love in order to help him develop his character, showing that she doesn't like quitters, even allowing Cricket to exploit the loophole by wrestling her.
  • Struggling Single Mother: As shown in "Green's Acres", she exhausted herself both managing the farm and raising Bill on her own, ultimately selling some of the farmland to put more focus on her son.
  • Unaffected by Spice: In "Feud Fight", she scoffs at the peppers on offer at the farmer's market. When the Pepper Merchant offers her some incredibly spicy peppers, she takes a bite of one, and calls it "zesty" (while breathing a little fire).
  • The Unapologetic: She hardly ever apologizes for her actions, even if said actions are the source of the conflict of an episode, mostly out of Pride. She even tells Cricket, "Never admit your mistakes!" in "Harvest Dinner".
  • Ungrateful Bitch:
    • In "Garage Tales", one story showed her responding to her future husband offering to fix her broken-down car by stealing his truck.
    • In "Chipocalypse Now", Bill reveals that the act which got Nancy arrested was her attempt to strike back against the company that was buying out the old farm. While she did break the law, Nancy was trying to defend the family farm, something for which Alice has clearly never shown any gratitude for.
  • Wacky Parent, Serious Child: She's the wacky parent to Bill's serious child.
  • When I Was Your Age...: Delves into this from time to time, about how life was different/tough back in her younger days. Her theme song takeover really makes use of this.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Has aqua blue hair. When younger though, she's a brunette.

"Kids, when you see an injustice in this crazy world, you best do something about it."
Voiced by: Wendi McLendon-Covey, Candace Kozak (young self in "Green's Acres")
A biker and mechanic, Cricket and Tilly's mother, and Bill's former wife.
  • Amicably Divorced: She and Bill seem to get along pretty well despite being divorced. The fact that they were friends before they were a couple no doubt helps.
  • Ascended Extra: Was only mentioned once early in the series, then made a brief appearance in "Phoenix Rises" before finally getting a major role in "Uncaged". By Season 2, she has essentially become a main character.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Downplayed in that her navel isn't showing, but she wears a lavender tank top that shows a sliver of her stomach.
  • Biker Babe: The first thing she does after getting out of jail is go to a biker bar and give Phoenix a ride home in her sidecar.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: "Greens Acres" reveals that she first met Bill when they were kids, forming a friendship that would later blossom into romance.
  • Chubby Mama, Skinny Papa: Quite the opposite. While Bill is quite portly, Nancy is much slimmer.
  • Coordinated Clothes: Downplayed, but Nancy wears jeans with a hole over her right knee, similar to how Bill's jeans have a hole over his left knee.
  • The Dog Bites Back: In "Cousin Jilly". Her reaction to Alice telling her she's a "guest" rather than a part of the family is to force Alice to invoke Sacred Hospitality, having her do everything to keep her comfortable. Considering how badly Alice tends to treat Nancy, this was a long overdue moment of payback.
  • Fiery Redhead: Has raspberry red hair to go with her tough personality.
  • Friend to All Living Things: She has a deep love and respect for animals (freeing a herd of dairy cows was what got her put in jail in the first place), something she passed on to her offspring.
  • In-Series Nickname: Bill, and others, will call her "Nance".
  • Like Parent, Like Child: Cricket definitely inherited his stubbornness and independent nature from her. "Harvest Dinner" highlights this when she and Bill attempt to cook dinner together, with Nancy disagreeing with and annoying Bill as much as Cricket would.
  • Locked Out of the Loop:
    • Up until "Chipocalypse Now", she was the only member of the Greens who did not meet Chip Whistler, and was unaware of his takeover of Big Coffee and his imminent destruction to the Green house.
    • In "Fill Bill", she was unsurprisingly the only Green who didn't get banned from the seafood restaurant the Greens visited.
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: The tough rambunctious masculine girl to Bill's feminine boy.
  • Mama Bear: In "Trailer Trouble", her old motorcycle gang comes looking for her after she's released from jail, trying to convince her to rejoin the gang again on movie night with Cricket and Tilly. When they tow her trailer away, she goes to the Stingers' headquarters and challenges them to a motorcycle race, wagering her motorcycle against the trailer. She wins the race by releasing the sidecar with Cricket and Tilly in it, technically crossing the finish line and earning the Stingers' respect.
  • Missing Mom: Infrequently mentioned, but never seen. This is because she spent half of Season 1 in jail.
  • Nice, Mean, and In-Between: The in-between to Bill's nice and Alice's mean; she's rough and tough, but has a soft side at times.
  • Odd Name Out: She's the only Green family member without a short I in her name (Cricket, Tilly, Bill, Alice). Justified, though, since she wasn't born a Green.
  • Parent Service: She is very hot, and often wears outfits that show off her body.
  • Parental Hypocrisy: She was sent to jail for letting a bunch of cows loose from a dairy farm, with Cricket looking up to her as a cool rebel mom figure. Later on, when Cricket and Tilly release the animals from the zoo without her knowledge, she calls them out for this, having paid her debt to society in jail, and when Cricket and Tilly fess up to releasing the animals from the zoo, she resolves to try and be a better mom.
  • Parents as People: While she has a habit of encouraging her kids' troublemaking sides, she genuinely wants to be a good mother to Cricket and Tilly, and deeply regrets the time she was apart from them.
    • One of Nancy's more realistic traits is that she's aware she doesn't have much practice being a mother, and often voices some concern or nervousness over it. Her parenting style is distinctly looser than Bill's, and she likes being the "fun" parent. Earlier episodes featuring her typically have her learning an aesop about the job.
  • Tomboyish Voice: Mild, but her voice is deeper compared to the other female characters in the show.
  • Toxic Friend Influence: She is implied to have one on Bill in their childhood, which is why Alice warned him to stay away from her but was ignored. This might also have been the reason they divorced their marriage prior to the move to Big City.
  • Ugly Guy, Hot Wife: Ex-wife, mind you, but she is much more attractive than Bill.
  • Walking Spoiler: The exact nature of how she's a Missing Mom has made her this.
  • Will They or Won't They?: It is sometimes teased that she might get back together with Bill.
  • Youthful Freckles: She has freckles to go along with her red hair, with freckles being passed on to Tilly.

Farm animals and pets

    Phoenix 
Voiced by: Dee Bradley Baker, Jameela Jamil (in "Animal Farm")
Cricket's dog, whom he has had since he was a baby.
  • A Day in the Limelight: Becomes the main focus of "Phoenix Rises" and "Animal Farm".
  • Big Damn Heroes: In "Cricket's Shoes", she comes out of nowhere to protect the Greens from a horde of angry dogs.
  • I Am Very British: She speaks with a heavily-pronounced British accent.
  • Meaningful Name: Was found in the ashes of a burned-down barn.
  • Viewer Gender Confusion: Was often thought to be male given such appearance, but is revealed as female in "Phoenix Rises".
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: During the events of "Welcome Home", she was strangely not seen during the Greens' move to Big City, despite going there with them.

    Dirtbag 
Voiced by: Cart Tart (in "Animal Farm")
Alice's Siamese cat.
  • Cats Are Snarkers: Does almost nothing but snark at the other animals in "Animal Farm", though with how buffoonish they are acting in the episode you can’t blame him too much.
  • Only Sane Man: The only animal who knows Phoenix is the rightful leader and that Cogburn is just a bully who will take advantage of everyone. He wastes no time in calling out the animals how much they they messed up by making Cogburn the new leader when they realize their error.

Alice's late husband and Bill's dad. He passed away at some point while Bill was still a kid.
  • For Want of a Nail: "Greens' Acres" revealed his death is what started the chain of events leading to Big City being built around the farm. While Alice did her best to manage the farm after Ernest died, it's clear she couldn't handle the farm's uptake while raising Bill at the same time. She eventually sold some of the farmland to bring in extra money while giving her less work to do and more space in her schedule to focus on Bill.
  • Nice Guy: He fell in love with Alice even after she stole his truck while he tried to fix her own car.

  • Ink-Suit Actor: Even moreso than Cricket, Bixby looks exactly similar to Chris Houghton as an adult, it's most noticable in the hair.
  • Nice Hat: A raccoon hat.
  • Plot Coupon: His is a pocket watch always set at 9:00 AM.

Bill's pickup truck, he has had it for many years at the point that he considers it, part of his family.

  • Companion Cube: Bill treats Kludge as part of his family, this is better seen in "Car Trouble", where he was devastated after he traded Kludge for Dr. Bubblebutt. He comes as far to dedicate a song to Kludge in "Okay Karaoke".
  • Made of Iron: It cannot be destroyed or crashed by anything, as per its motto, "Kludge Don't Budge." However, this does not prevent it from falling apart itself.
  • Suddenly Speaking: Subverted. At the end of "Car Trouble", the Kludge utters a bubbling voice that sounds like "I love you too," but is actually a result of an oil leak.
