     Main Characters 

Steve Williams

Voiced by: David Herman

The show's main protagonist and person who wins Ranger of the Month. How he's always Ranger of the Month is a mystery (that only Woody knows) cause he's a horrible and stupid park ranger.

  • Abusive Parents: His father is implied to have robbed him of his money and beat his mom, then lied and said a ghost did it. Steve was in complete denial over it, even though it turns out his father is innocent and a ghost really did rob him and beat his mom.
  • Ambiguously Bi: Normally he's only seen interested in ladies. But at one point when he's trying to get Denzel off weed, Denzel says he'll suck his dick if he lets him have some. Steve tells him that he can suck his dick, but he's not giving him any weed. Then he spreads his legs. At another point, him and Denzel are forced to take part in bondage games and told to act like dogs. When Steve sniffs Denzel's butt, Denzel tells him that just because they were ordered to act like dogs doesn't mean he has to go that far. Steve was unaware that he had been asked to do anything.
  • Amusing Injuries: In "Steve's Bald" and "Crippleberry"
  • All Love Is Unrequited: Is shown to have a completely one sided crush on Ethel all the way.
  • Butt-Monkey: To a bigger extent than the other characters of the show, he's constantly subjected to painful injuries and humiliation, mostly stemming from something stupid he did.
  • Broken Pedestal: Was traumatically exposed to the fact that his childhood idol Flamey The Bear was a drunken, drug addicted hedonistic asshole, though what broke him was when Flamey signed the back of his album ("Flamey the Bear: Jazz in Your Face") with the message, "I had fun fucking your girlfriend. Suck my dick, Flamey the Bear" and when Flamey confessed that he had sex with his mother the day he met him at the opening of a Winn-Dixie.
  • Extreme Doormat: He mostly does whatever Woody tells him to, no matter how sick or demeaning. In "The Dam Show," he tried to establish himself as leader of the flood survivors, but ended up letting them walk all over him and do whatever they felt like.
  • Fake Ultimate Hero: He pretends to be Big Foot in "Steve's Bald".
  • Fatand Skinny: The fat to skinny Denzel.
  • Hairstyle Inertia: Had the same haircut as a kid as he does as an adult, even though "Steve's Bald" revealed that he lost the hair on his head the day he hit puberty and had to wear a toupee through his teen years.
  • It's All About Me
  • Jerkass: Big time.
  • Mr. Seahorse: When Ethel has their baby aborted, Steve pays Dr. Kuzniak to have the embroyo put in him. It turns out it was an ovarian cyst.
  • More Hypnotizable Than He Thinks: In one episode he visits a hypnotist to help him get over his fear of flying. He starts to say that he doubts someone with a will as strong as him can be hypnotized, but the hypnotist snaps his fingers and Steve is under before he can finish his sentence.
  • Narcissist: Is more into himself than women. Taken to extremes in Little Boy Malloy, where he hooks up with a school teacher who looks exactly like him, and acts like him.
  • Never My Fault: He thinks everyone around him has problems except him.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: He can't go anywhere without causing disasters.
  • Spell My Name with a "The": Calls himself "The Steve" after taking steroids, and the other characters follow suit.
  • Teeny Weenie: Its been mentioned in a few episodes and straight out shown in the comic book's 1st issue that he has an abnormally small penis. However, in "Animals Strike Back" after Steve put his dick in a yellowjacket bee hive, it did grow 6 inches.....wider.
    • And a ball-gina! (Daddy Issues)
  • Unsympathetic Comedy Protagonist: It's hard to sympathize with him due to how self-centered he is.

Ethel Anderson

Voiced by: Kaitlin Olson in season one; season two, by Natasha Leggero

The sane, sometimes sensible, employee on the staff.

  • The Ace: Despite her alcoholism which got her fired from Yellowstone and temporarily got her fired from Brickleberry, she's still a better employee than everyone in the main cast.
  • Ax-Crazy: In "Steve's Bald" in which she becomes this to animals after blowing a deer's brains out.
  • Has a Type: As demonstrated in "Daddy Issues", she always dates jerks.
  • The Lancer
  • Naked People Are Funny: In the first episode, she wore no pants while drunk. In another, she shows herself naked and drunk at a party to convince the public she's unsuited for public office due to her drinking problem
  • Not So Different: Despite being the only person in the park who does her job right, she's often shown to be just as crazy and dysfunctional as her coworkers, especially in season two.
  • Only Sane Employee: more like Only Competent Employee, though season two had her as base and depraved as everyone else.
  • Pink Means Feminine: She has a pink gun holster.


Voiced by: Daniel Tosh

A bear cub who hangs out with the rangers. Was adopted by Head Ranger Woody Johnson after Steve ran over his parents and accidentally shot them while trying to run for help.

  • Bears Are Bad News: An unconventional example of this trope; he's not a physical threat to any of the main characters, opting instead to be a spoiled, insulting jerk who only cares about himself.
    • Played completely straight whenever he has an enemy his own size, such as an obnoxious 1st grader, and a group of actor midgets.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: His eyebrows are drawn thicker than the other characters'.
  • Black Comedy Rape: On the first episode, where he willingly went inside Bobby's trailer to get his junk food fix, despite calling him out for being a rapist.
  • Body Pocket: He stuffs some vibrator batteries into his "pocket" in episode one.
  • Chronic Pet Killer: He's killed a goldfish, a puppy, a toucan, and a hobo. All ended up being flushed down the toilet after they died. The only pets he had that didn't die from being neglected by him were a hamster and a horse (both of which killed themselves).
  • Deadpan Snarker: He often insults everyone with sarcastic comments.
  • Expy: Brian Griffin's anthropomorphism and jerkishness was coupled with Stewie Griffin's homicidal tendencies.
  • Freudian Excuse: The deaths of his parents didn't do him any favors.
  • Hates Everyone Equally: Has no respect for women (even hot ones), different races, homosexuals, rednecks, and other animals.
  • Jerkass: He's the selfish with an acerbic personality type. If Malloy opens his mouth, chances are he's insulting you, or about to screw you over.
  • Karma Houdini: Whether it's playing a corrupt lawyer or insulting people, Malloy rarely gets hurt by his jerk ass actions (unless you count the pilot episode where he gets raped by Bobby after being lured into his trailer with promises of junk food). It helps that his "owner" is little more than a personal servant and walking ATM. Ironically, one time when he DOES suffer, he hasnt actually done anything wrong, and the suffering comes from him trying to live on his own after a magical fortune teller machine turns him into an adult bear.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Surprisingly good at manipulation and trickery.
  • Online Alias: He goes by "MalloyTheTalkingBear12" on E-bay. Denzel sold him a jetpack without realizing who he was.
  • Spoiled Brat: Much of Malloy's attitude problem seems to come from Woody spoiling him as though he's a pet instead of a sapient creature that should be taught self-sufficiency.
  • Surrounded by Idiots: For him, it's everyone around him just by living their pointless lives.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: The beginning of "Woody's Girl" shows a flashback when Malloy was a baby, and he tells Woody he loves him. In the present, Malloy is chasing Woody with a gun.
  • Would Hurt a Child: in a wheelchair.

Woodrow "Woody" Johnson

Voiced by: Tom Kenny

The head of Brickleberry's ranger station, a former US Marine and veteran of Iraq and Malloy's owner.

  • Abusive Parents: See Hilariously Abusive Childhood.
  • Acrofatic: Despite being overweight, he retains all the combat skill he was taught in the army, and can move very quickly for a man his size.
  • Ain't Too Proud to Beg: After the Secretary of the Interior demotes him, a night at Firecracker Jim's place is horrible enough to get him to beg her to give him his old job back.
  • Amusing Injuries: When he is forced to walk off the plank by Pirate Steve:
    Woody: Goodbye cruel wooorld!
    (lands feet-first into surprisingly shallow water)
    Woody: Aww, I broke my goddamn ankles!
  • Badass Mustache: He has a big moustache.
  • The Bully: He tends to be this to his employees, especially Steve.
  • Calling the Old Man Out: He has it out with his mother at the end of "That Brother's My Father" before literally throwing her out of his house.
  • Conspiracy Theorist: But only for the episode "Trip to Mars".
  • Fat Bastard: He's overweight and is a complete dick to his employees.
  • Gagging on Your Words: When he tries to apologize to the governor he offended. He just ends up insulting her again.
  • The Heckler: He becomes one at a rally for a female governor candidate. His behavior results in her approving a highway that runs straight through Brickleberry.
  • High-Pressure Blood: Literally. When Dr. Kuzniak tries to draw some blood, it sprays out across the room.
  • Hidden Depths: Was a professional level gymnast when he was younger, but was banned from competing due to going on a murderous rampage after losing the gold medal in the Ranger Games to Yellowstone.
  • Hilariously Abusive Childhood: Though your mileage may vary on how "hilarious" it is. The first and second episode revealed that Woody's father dressed him up like a woman and sexually abused him after his mom died and that Woody's mom never loved him, which gave Woody post-traumatic stress disorder (then again, so did joining the Army and participating in active combat) that drove him to dress up like a Nazi officer with a Kermit the Frog puppet urging him to kill himself. Fortunately, the PTSD went away after he adopted Malloy.
    • A later episode showed that his mother gave him a hooker for his eighth birthday and forced him to have sex with the hooker so he doesn't "turn into a queer" and "That Brother's My Father" showed that she shoved Woody in a closet filled with birds and bees after catching him masturbating to a National Geographic magazine with African tribeswomen and had him breastfed until he was 17.
  • No Indoor Voice: He constantly yells his dialogue.
  • Gag Penis: If the black bar in his porno movies is to be believed, his dick almost reaches his knees. Woody even described it as "a dishonest Pinocchio nose."
  • Politically Incorrect Hero: He's a racist, homophobic, misogynistic, child hating, egocentric ex-Marine who tries to keep the park in order despite his horrible personality.
  • Pointy-Haired Boss: He started a forest fire to impress a higher-up, siphons park funds for his birthday party, keeps a bear cub as a pet after one of his workers ran over and accidentally shot the cub's parents, signs permits indiscriminately (and often under the influence), keeps a bunch of grossly incompetent employers around (even though Ethel is said to be the only one who actually does her job and can be trusted with responsibilities and he can't fire Denzel, since there's a high chance he'll sue for racial discrimination), etc. Really, it's a long list.
  • Porn Names: When Woody was a porn star, he went by the name "Rex Erection". Ethel points out that "Woody Johnson" would've been a good porn name on its own, but Woody doesn't get it.
  • Serial Killer: It hasn't been the focus of an episode, but he apparently has a kill count of several ex-girlfriends, a lot of prostitutes, and opposing candidates for a club membership he wanted. He also works as a hitman for hire.
  • Shell-Shocked Veteran: Having Malloy as a stress pet is the only thing keeping Woody from a complete breakdown, due to his unstable mental state after his experiences in the army. On the occasions where Malloy is gone, his PTSD quickly resurfaces, and he has serious war flashbacks.
  • Skyward Scream: Combined with a Big "NO!" when he sees that a highway has been built over Brickleberry.

Denzel Jackson

Voiced by: Jerry Minor

One of the rangers who work at the station and Steve's best friend.

  • Black Best Friend: To Steve, even though Steve is such an idiot and racist (though not out of malice), it's more of a case of With Friends Like These....
  • Black and Nerdy: Secretly a HUGE Lord Of the Rings fan after getting introduced to the stories by Steve.
  • Black Is Bigger in Bed: Fulfills the comedic version of this trope, though ironically, he does not have the biggest genitals on the show, or even of the main cast, with Woody, being an ex porn star, holding that role.
  • Fat and Skinny: The Skinny to Steve's fat.
  • Fish out of Water: When he's in the forest. He thought trees were hairy telephone poles and an owl was a flying mailbox.
  • Jive Turkey: He constantly peppers his dialogue with slang.
  • Likes Older Women: Is into old, white women. Exaggerated when he had sex with a Neanderthal woman he found in an ice cave and got in the Guinness Book of World Records for having sex with the oldest white woman ever. He's also been on the receiving end of several comedic injuries due to his preferences, such as almost dying in an explosion after his post-coital cigarette ignited his latest bedmates oxygen tank.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: He's the only one who liked PETA's punishment on the rangers in "Squabbits", having various cosmetics tested on them including have lipstick shoved up his urethra.

Connie Cunaman

Voiced by: Roger Black

A female ranger who has a crush on Ethel.

  • Abusive Parents: Her WASPy parents basically disowned her after she came out as gay. Although considering the "winning" personalities THEY have, it's questionable if this really counts as abuse or as a bright spot in her otherwise miserable life.
    • Her mom pushed her to do pageants as a child with emotional manipulation and encouraging her to do drugs and binge and purge to stay thin.
  • Butch Lesbian: So butch that another lesbian thought she was a man.
  • Creator Cameo: She is voiced by Roger Black, one of the show's creators.
  • Cross-Dressing Voice: See above
  • The Eeyore: Positive and chipper she isn't.
  • Fan of Underdog
  • Fat Girl: Became fat after her drill sergeant forced her to eat during basic training after he found a full Thanksgiving dinner hidden in her footlocker, though "Ranger Games" revealed that she used steroids (which also causes weight gain) so she can be on the high school football team and "Miss National Park" reveals that she became fat when she hit puberty (during one of her pageant performances).
  • Gonk: Her character design plays this trope unusually straight for an American cartoon.
  • Multiboobage: She has a pair of tits on her back as well.
  • Perpetual Frowner: It's often rare to see her smiling in some episodes. Her ugly face could be a cause since she's so ugly that other lesbian women don't want her either.
  • Super Strength: Her Lesbian Strength power.
  • Stalker with a Crush: To Ethel, though season two doesn't have this as much. It was mentioned again on the season three episode "Baby Daddy."


    Recurring Characters 

Bobby Possumcods

Voiced by Waco O'Guin

A Recurring Extra who keeps showing up in the show after his first appearance (the pilot episode "Welcome to Brickleberry") in which he rapes Malloy after luring him into his trailer with promises of chocolate and junk food. He lives in a derelict trailer in Brickleberry Park, and is usually seen with his dull(er)-witted best friend BoDean (first seen in "Race-Off").

  • Ambiguously Bi: Though he's mostly into sexually molesting children and small animals, as mentioned on his court order in the pilot episode.
  • Author Avatar: Most likely of that one live-action guy (the one with the fez and the nipple tassles, not the guy in the dress who screams) who appears on the "Damn! Show" vanity plate at the end of the episode (Waco O'Guin, who also voices Bobby).
  • Bestiality Is Depraved: Is an unrepentant animal lover.
  • The Cameo: See Author Avatar.
  • Chaotic Stupid: He thinks nothing of blatantly admitting of his depraved inclinations. Even when denying them, he isn't helping his cause.
  • Demoted to Extra: He's a secondary character in the cartoon, while Waco O'Guin puts a lot of effort into him for live-action comedy outside Brickleberry.
  • A Day in the Limelight: "Trailer Park" and much of "Obamascare" centered on him and his idiot friend, BoDean.
  • Fat Best Friend: He's this to BoDean.
  • Recurring Extra: A minor character who makes occasional appearances.
  • Screams Like a Little Girl: Has a hilariously high pitched girlish scream.

BoDean Lynn

Voiced by Roger Black

A redneck who is Bobby's best friend (and liability) who is very stupid and talks for long periods of time without stopping to breathe.

  • Ascended Extra: He barely showed up in Season 1, but starting from Season 2's "Trailer Park" he takes up more screen time.
  • The Ditz: He's incredibly stupid, given that he eats raw bacon, jacks off while putting guns in his mouth, sticks pencils and pens in his eye as SOON as he signed up for Bobby's health care plan.
    • Dumbass Has a Point: On the other hand, BoDean has an incredibly bright knowledge of politics such as arguing that he voted for Obama because he feels that Obama can handle health care and tackle income inequality quite effectively as while right-wingers enforce regressive tax reforms upon lower income individuals like himself.
  • Fat and Skinny: The skinny to Bobby's fat. But BoDean instead mocks Woody for being fat.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: In "Global Warning", BoDean wanted to eat Connie's back tits.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: BoDean's signature action. His stupidity causes him to create problems for both the main characters and his best friend Bobby.

Dr. Kuzniak

Voiced by Tom Kenny

The town's only doctor, who isn't even allowed to practice medicine due to being disbarred, though that doesn't stop him. First appeared on the season one episode "Two Weeks Notice."

  • Affably Evil: A really nice guy, but he makes Mengele look like Dr House (or Krieger from Archer look like Dr. Hibbert from The Simpsons).
  • Back-Alley Doctor: Fits this trope to a T. He usually operates out of a clinic (and, in a few episodes, the hospital), but has been seen offering his services on the street more than once, and in the episode "Baby Mama", he operates a mobile abortion clinic out of a taco truck. There are several disastrous mixups.
  • Morally Ambiguous Doctorate: Does not seem to have understood what the Hippocratic Oath meant.
  • Labcoat of Science and Medicine: Is never seen without his.
  • Not That Kind of Doctor: Not anymore anyway, not that this stops him.


Voiced by David Herman

A sleazy strip club owner of ambiguous ethnicity. Was first seen on season one's "Hello Dottie."

  • Ambiguously Brown: Even Jorge himself has stated he has no idea what ethnicity he actually is. His name implies that he's Hispanic, but he's white/Caucasian and looks and sounds as if he could be from a Central Asian or Middle Eastern country.
  • Funny Foreigner
  • Funetik Aksent
  • Honest John's Dealership: Runs his strip club (and in "Write 'Em Cowboy," his apartment complex and back alley daycare center for single-mom strippers with young children) according to this trope.
  • The Hedonist: Is an unabashed pervert. "Scared Straight" reveals that he's into furries and hairy men (though he just mistook Peter Jackson for a man in an animal costume) and "Baby Daddy" reveals he's into pregnant men.

Barack Obama

Voiced by David Herman

The 44th President of the United States who was president during the show's run from 2012 to 2015. He's totally obsessed with Connie of all women.

  • Big Beautiful Woman: This is what Obama perceives Connie to be.
  • Catchphrase: "Flappy dappy ass!"
  • Chubby Chaser: He's a total pervert always asking for sexual favors from Connie like getting to play with her "flappy dappy" ass and asking for her panties.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Bobby Possumcods pointed out that Obamacare actually does succeed in helping out poor, low-income individuals who are down-on-their-luck like himself, even though initially due to his right-wing ideology he dismissed Obamacare as ineffective.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: He casually taunts Connie always mocking how big her butt is with very distasteful vocabulary.
  • What Does He See In Her?: Steve wonders why would anyone want Connie if she's so fat and ugly.
  • Your Cheating Heart: He shamelessly cheats on Michelle (who he says is a lesbian) to get to Connie.

Firecracker Jim

Voiced by Roger Black
A redneck man who blew off his arms and legs and sells fireworks. He has a wife named Beula and they beat each other up and then have dirty sex in the same minute.
  • Aesop Amnesia: Apparently he didn't learn his lesson about pyromania after the Miracle Lake granted him his arms and legs back, he became an amputated stump all over again.
  • An Arm and a Leg: He has no limbs at all, he blew them up from his pyromania.
  • Domestic Abuse: He has a horribly abusive relationship with his wife Buella.


How well does it match the trope?
