Main Characters

    Harvey Beaks
Voiced by: Max Charles
The eponymous protagonist. A sweet and good-natured young bird who can't help but abide by the rules and seek new adventures with his friends.
  • Acrophobic Bird: In "The Spitting Tree", it's revealed Harvey is afraid of heights, though the irony of this is never addressed.
  • Adorkable: He's very meek and quite adorable.
  • All-Loving Hero: Harvey sees pretty much everyone in Littlebark Grove as his friend and considers them all "best friends", even the likes of Princess, who is mostly begrudgingly allowed by the others to hang out with them.
  • Berserk Button: Values being loved and good so much to the point where if he loses it, he'll go on a naked rampage.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: In "Harvey Isn't Scary", Harvey uses his intimate knowledge of his friends to create a scary story that terrifies and emotionally destroys them. Even he's amazed at what he's done.
  • Lawful Stupid: He can fall under this at times. For example, in "Certified Babysitter", he can't bring himself to enter the Super Hot Spring unless accompanied by an adult—even though his egg-sister is right in the middle of it, in danger of becoming hard-boiled.
  • Lethal Klutz: In "Barkball", Harvey is so bad at the eponymous sport that he incapacitates every member of his team by bashing their shins with his sticks. He ends up winning anyway because he does the same to his opponent, which is apparently a legal move in Barkball.
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: The soft-spoken feminine boy to Fee's masculine girl.
  • Neat Freak: Harvey is obsessed with orderliness in his surroundings. The first thing he did when he was born was tidy up the bits of his eggshell.
  • Nervous Wreck: He gets panicky pretty easily when he ends up in an uncomfortable situation.
  • Nice Guy: In comparison to his best friends, Harvey is a very pleasant and mild-mannered guy.
  • Odd Friendship: A quiet, well-behaved bird and two loud, trouble-making imps wouldn't seem like the kind that would get along, right?
  • Poke the Poodle: Prone to this whenever he tries to be tough or scary.
  • Sanity Slippage: Happens to him at the end of "Pe-Choo!", where he takes his friends' "insults" about him seriously and says he's "AN EMPTY SHELL OF A PERSON!!!"
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: The sensitive guy to Foo's manly man.
  • Serious Business: He and his mother feel this way about his favorite board game, to the point that he makes it un-fun for everyone else.
  • Super OCD: Is very orderly and wants everything to go as planned.
  • Tuft of Head Fur: Harvey has a fluff of feathers on his head that makes it clear that he is feathered instead of blue skinned.
  • Wild Child: He's learning how to be one.


Voiced by: Angelina Wahler
Foo's sister and Harvey's best friend, Fee is a wild and tomboyish girl whose rough nature belies her sisterly attitude to Harvey and Foo.
  • Ambiguously Gay: Fee was never given a male love interest during the course of the series. However, she seemed quite fond of the woman bouncer in "Nightclub Night", given how impressed she was by her. Harvey then encouraged Fee to go ask if she can give bouncing a try and the whole conversation comes off like Harvey encouraging Fee to talk to someone she has a crush on.
  • All of the Other Reindeer: Fee and Foo aren't exactly liked by the other inhabitants of the forest.
    • Related to Foo's entry, she and Claire end up bonding during their attempts to break up Foo and Princess in "Buds Before Studs."
  • Berserk Button: Mess with her brother or her friends and you're done for. She literally went blind with rage when squirrels kidnapped Foo.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: You do not want to get Fee angry, despite her silly and carefree demeanor.
  • Big Sister Instinct: Though she and Foo are twins, she was born first and has been shown to be very protective of Foo. She even mentions in "Buds Before Studs" that the reason she's not keen on a girlfriend getting between her and Foo is because she doesn't want him to get hurt.
  • Brains and Brawn: Ends up forming the Brawn to Claire's Brains in "Buds Before Studs."
  • Cartoon Creature: When asked what kind of animal Fee and Foo are, Greenblatt has stated they were "nothing specific", though they're sometimes called imps or gremlins. Word of God apparently confirms them to be imps. This was made explicit on-screen in the series finale, as their parents come from the Greater Impland Empire.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Not as much as Foo, but she still has her moments.
  • Cloudcuckoolander's Minder: To Foo.
  • Cool Big Sis: To Foo, although she's only older by a few minutes.
  • Everyone Has Standards: For as chaotic as she is, outright theft doesn't seem to sit well with her. It seems to vary though. She did suggest that Harvey steal the bike from Randl, and the trophy from Princess.
  • Extreme Omnivore: She admits to being one when she says a food that Foo likes is so nasty even she won't eat it.
    Fee: And I'm not picky. I ate a tire once!
  • Fiery Redhead: Close enough. Fee has dark pink (bordering on red) hair and a feisty attitude to boot.
  • Gasshole: Of the burping variety. Her "celebration burps" are loud enough to shake the forest, as demonstrated in "Buds Before Studs".
  • Genki Girl: She's cheerful, wild, and energetic.
  • Hates Baths: She never takes baths, according to Harvey in "The Almighty Foo."
  • Intergenerational Friendship: Forms one with Harvey's mom in "Comet Night!" and later with the eponymous old man Blister in "The Blister".
  • Improvised Clothes: Fee's outfit is just a burlap sack with a rope belt. Ties in with her and her brother being Forest Urchins.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She's a little rough around the edges but she really does care about her friends.
    • In "Tail of Les Squirrels", she throws a squirrel's detached tail down a river right as she was about to give it back to its rightful owner, when the owner made the mistake of insulting her friends.
    • She's also the first to suggest helping Moff feel appreciated and less left out in "Steamgate".
  • Odd Friendship: A quiet, well-behaved bird and two loud, trouble-making imps wouldn't seem like the kind that would get along, right?
    • Also extends to her friendship with Claire; Fee is outgoing and rough-and-tumble while Claire is shy and bookish.
  • Outdoorsy Gal: Befitting a Wild Child.
  • The Pig Pen: Never washes her hair to the point of storing things in it and has no qualms with letting a colony of bugs live in it.
  • Tomboy: Enjoys getting dirty, hangs around with guys and even takes pleasure whenever Foo is hitting her (in a playful way, of course).
  • Wild Child: Like Foo, Fee can be very untamed and hyperactive. However, she tends to be the more balanced and cunning of the two.
  • Wild Hair: She has a large, rectangle-shaped, fuchsia-colored hairdo to match her wild personality.

Voiced by: Jackson Brundage (until "Old-Fashioned Dade"), Tom Robinson ("Old-Fashioned Dade" onwards)
Fee's brother and Harvey's other best friend, Foo is very similar to Fee in personality, but tends to be more carefree and eccentric than his sister.
  • All of the Other Reindeer: Fee and Foo aren't exactly liked by the other inhabitants of the forest. With the exception of Claire, who seems to have a crush on Foo.
  • Cartoon Creature: When asked what kind of animal Fee and Foo are, Greenblatt has stated they were "nothing specific", though they're sometimes called imps or gremlins. They eventually settled on "imp", as the series finale shows their parents come from the Greater Impland Empire.
  • Cheerful Child: He's never depressed and always has a smile on his face.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Even more-so than Fee. In one episode, he thought that he needed to take his pants off to ride a bike.
  • Keet: Playful, cheerful, and a friendly (if often mischievous) imp.
  • Half-Dressed Cartoon Animal: He only wears a pair of red pants. He tends to take them off.
  • Long Pants: His red pants, which would be easy to mistake for the colour of his torso if he didn't like to take them off a lot.
  • Love You and Everybody: When Claire manages to ask him if he likes her in a girlfriend way, Foo replies that he does... and that he likes a rock he found as his rockfriend, and a leaf he found as his leaffriend.
  • Oblivious to Love: Regarding Claire's very noticeable crush on him.
  • Odd Friendship: A quiet, well-behaved bird and two loud, trouble-making imps wouldn't seem like the kind that would get along, right?
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Bugs, which Fee and Harvey often feed him.
    • Also Furberries, which appear to have the texture and taste of a hairball. Noteworthy in that Foo seems to be the only one who can stomach them, let alone enjoy them.
  • Wild Child: Like Fee, Foo can be very untamed and hyperactive.
  • Would Hit a Girl: At least when it comes to Fee. Though she quite enjoys getting hit and is more than able to give as good as she gets.

Voiced by: Kerri Kenney-Silver
Harvey's mother. She works as a librarian at Littlebark Grove's library.

    Irving Beaks
Voiced by: Scott Adsit
Harvey's stay-at-home father. He's more emotional and sensitive than his wife.

  • Chick Magnet: Never elaborated on, but he apparently dated quite a few girls before he met Miriam.
  • Good Parents: Like Miriam of course, he loves Harvey very much. He even made him the best man at his second wedding.

    Michelle Beaks
Click here to see Michelle as an Egg 
Voiced by: Kari Wahlgren
Harvey's baby sister, who hatches from her egg in the first episode of Season 2. She's quite the troublemaker for her age.

    Aiden and Miley
Left: Aiden. Right: Miley
Voiced by: Jim O'Heir (Aiden) and Catherine O'Hara (Miley)
Miriam's mom and dad, thus Harvey's grandparents. Aiden is a retired desk cop while Miley used to be a judge.
  • Cool Old Guy: Aiden. Asides from being a former police officer (albeit of the desk variety), he's still got a lot of energy for his age and he loves playing joking around and playing with his camera.
  • Cool Old Lady: Miley. She used to be a judge, and as she demonstrates in her "interrogation" with Harvey, she's still pretty dang good at what she does. And yet she's as sweet as honey.
  • Dirty Old Man: Implied with Aiden, who is briefly seen filming Miley's butt for some reason. Harvey finds it disturbing.
  • Doting Grandparent: Both of them love their grandson a lot, but Miley is especially doting.
  • Elderly Blue-Haired Lady: Miley. It's a faded-out version of her daughter's hair.
  • Only One Name: Since Miriam's maiden name is never mentioned.
  • Pungeon Master: Aiden likes to make cheesy puns.

    Roland Beaks
Voiced by: Blake Clark
Irving's stone-hearted father and Harvey's other grandfather. His wife passed away some time before the show's events.
  • A Day in the Limelight: Although he debuted alongside Aiden and Miley in "The Case of the Missing Pancake", he gets more spotlight in "The Feelings". He was also supposed to get his own spotlight episode if the show had gotten a third season as that season's finale.
  • Eyepatch of Power: Though how he got it is a mystery.
  • The Eeyore: He's not a very cheerful guy. Word of God says that a lot of it has to do with his wife passing away.
  • Perpetual Frowner: Once again, he's not really a joyous fellow.
  • The Quiet One: If he says anything, it's usually just a single word sentence.
  • The Stoic: Rarely shows any emotion or expresses his feelings with more than simple huff or grunt.


Kids of Littlebark

Voiced by: Nicole Wedel
A shy fox who likes anime and has a crush on Foo. Her mother puts a lot of pressure on her to be as successful as her older sister.
  • A Day in the Limelight: "Buds Before Studs", which focuses on her crush on Foo.
  • Adorkable: Her shy personality and crush on Foo make her quite adorable.
  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: C.H. Greenblatt describes her crush on Foo as being her way of rebelling against her strict, sheltering mother.
  • Always Second Best: Despite proving herself fairly talented in "Princess Is Better Than You", Claire's older sister is implied to be so much better that it makes her look completely inadequate.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: She shows her fangs in "Buds Before Studs", when her crush is on the line
    Claire: I'll swing a mace, I'll take a life, I'll do whatever it takes!
  • Black Bead Eyes: When she doesn't have her glasses on.
  • Brains and Brawn: The Brains to Fee's Brawn in "Buds Before Studs."
  • Cunning Like a Fox: Despite being something of a Butt-Monkey in her home life, she gains Fee's admiration for her quick thinking and strategy.
  • Cute Little Fangs: Always has a small canine poking from her mouth.
  • Hilariously Abusive Childhood: Her mother makes her write essays when she fails, and makes her write essays when she succeeds. A comic revealed her mother once graded her future and she got a C-.
  • Invisible Parents: Despite being mentioned many times, Claire's parents (as well as her sister and home) remain unseen.
  • Lethal Chef: Her attempt to make spaghetti sauce ended up with a caustic brown slop that burns the hair right off of Foo. In her own words: "It came out evil"
  • Mega Nekko: She's usually seen wearing glasses.
  • Nerd: She's a shy glasses-wearing girl who loves anime, so she can definitely be considered one.
  • Occidental Otaku: "Buds Before Studs" shows her reading shoujo manga, and her fantasies about Foo are all done in a shoujo manga style.
  • Odd Friendship: Usually seen hanging out with Piri Piri. She also forms one with Fee in "Buds Before Studs."
  • Puppy Love: She has a crush on Foo.
  • Unrequited Tragic Maiden: Played for laughs. Foo couldn't be more ignorant of her advances if he tried.
  • Uptight Loves Wild: To reiterate, she has a crush on Foo.

Voiced by: C.H. Greenblatt
A conservative-minded rabbit who is Harvey's closest and longtime friend. He's a stick in the mud who can't stand Fee and Foo or their wild antics.
  • A Day in the Limelight: Gets the most of Harvey's friends, including "Old-Fashioned Dade", "Wade is Cooler than Dade", "The Dade", and "Why Are You Even Friends?".
  • Adorkable: In his more sympathetic moments. He's especially cute and awkward when he's around Harvey.
  • Ambiguously Christian: Dade's attitude is strongly reminiscent of children raised in fundamentalist Christian families, though he and his family are never confirmed to be religious in any way.
  • Ambiguously Gay: Dade seems to admire Harvey a lot.
    "Don't get me wrong, Harvey. You know there's nothing I'd like more than to make a beautiful life with you, my friend. But I got a family down there and a life to live, and so do you."
    • In "Nightclub Night", Dade drunkenly says he's going to kiss everyone in the room and then asks where Harvey is.
    • In "The Rebel", Dade blushes when he tells Harvey he looks different in his rebel clothes.
  • Bunnies for Cuteness: Despite his aloofness, he's actually extremely adorable. Averted with his numerous siblings who are shown to be completely out of control.
  • Control Freak: Has shades of this in "Nightclub Night". It really comes out in "Old Fashioned Dade."
  • Green-Eyed Monster: He's quite jealous of Fee and Foo's friendship with Harvey. "Old Fashioned Dade" shows that he and Harvey were really close before the twins came along, so it's not totally outlandish.
  • Grumpy Bear: Seems to have this attitude to most characters (especially Fee and Foo) except Harvey.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite his cynical attitude and dislike of the twins, he genuinely cares about Harvey. He just feels unloved, lonely, and overshadowed by his many, many siblings.
  • Keet: Just watch the opening credits scene of Old Fashioned Dade. He is very hyper and cheerful when he's in a good mood.
  • Massively Numbered Siblings: Being a rabbit, Dade practically lives in an ocean of siblings.
  • Nervous Wreck: Dade is highly neurotic about things, particularly if Harvey's safety is in jeopardy.
  • Puppy-Dog Eyes: He often does this when talking about Harvey.
  • The Stool Pigeon: Dade's instinct in major panic situations is to tattle on grown-ups, to the point that Fee has a nickname for him.
    Fee: Wait, who is this?
    Dade: Dade.
    Fee: Ooh, Tattle Pants!
    Dade: But, I'm not...
    Kratz: You kinda are.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Case in point: he once tried to protest against a nightclub. One of the reasons is that he gets a real bad case of sugar rush when exposed to soda.

Voiced by: Matthew Zhang
An awkward and mopey skunk who sprays gas when he's nervous. He tends to be the butt of misfortune among Harvey and his friends.
  • A Day in the Limelight: The last of Harvey's friends to receive one — "The Unknown Comic".
  • Born Unlucky: Just see the cold opening of "The Unknown Comic", and you'll know what we mean.
  • Butt-Monkey: Among Harvey and his friends due to his miserable nature and unlucky life.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Light on the snark but very heavy on the deadpan.
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: Played with. Nobody seems to think he's a girl, but he keeps ending up at girl-only functions despite his insistence that he's a boy.
  • Dull Surprise: Due to his Eeyore-like attitude, he tends to react this way alot.
  • The Eeyore: Word of God even confirms that his personality is based off of Eeyore.
  • Half-Dressed Cartoon Animal: He only wears a pair of brown pants.
  • Hidden Depths: "The Unknown Comic" reveals that he likes drawing and his comics quickly become popular among the other kids. He also claims to be a skilled actor in "Foo's Panic Room", but Dade wouldn't let him show it off (not that it stopped Kratz from trying).
  • Screw This, I'm Out of Here!: Prone to this. In "Junior Squealers" he gives up on chasing the twins because he thinks a cliff is too high to jump off of.
  • Smelly Skunk: He usually sprays when hurt or scared.

    Piri Piri
Voiced by: Madeleine Curry
An extremely idealistic, daydreaming bird who loves to paint and draw. She has a crush on Harvey and her mother is a fortune teller.
  • A Day in the Limelight: Shares one with Bartleburt in "Arbor Day", but gets one of her own in "Secret Gordon".
  • Adorkable: Her cute appearance and odd but sweet personality make her quite adorkable.
  • Cheerful Child: She makes even the most bizarre of statements with a joyful look and tone.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: She's rather odd, particularly about her art. Maybe she's a cuckoo bird?
    Piri Piri: What's your favorite color? Mine is "innocent baby laughter".
  • Genki Girl: Extremely idealistic and energetic, which contributes further to her oddball personality.
  • Large Ham: Tends to speak rather melodramatically.
  • Motor Mouth: Considering how cheerful she constantly is, it comes as no surprise that she tends to talk real fast when excited.
  • Edible Theme Naming: She's named after a type of chili pepper plant from Africa.
  • Nice Girl: She's undeniably sweet.
  • Nice Hat: Her stereotypical artist beret.
  • Non-Mammalian Hair: Like Miriam, she has a full set of hair instead of a few feather tufts.
  • Pie-Eyed: Her mother also has them, but they're otherwise the only characters in the show with that design.
  • The Pollyanna: She sees the bright side of everything. Even Fee and Foo vandalizing her sketchbook with drawings of butts.
  • Puppy Love: "Secret Gordon" shows she has a one-sided crush on Harvey.
  • Stock Costume Traits: Wears an artist's beret.
  • True Art Is Incomprehensible: In-Universe. She's an artist (complete with beret), and her Valentine's gift to Claire is a completely incomprehensible piece of postmodernism. She also considers the twins' crude scribblings "beautiful".
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Green hair actually.

    Princess Roberts
Voiced by: Andres Salaff
An obnoxious and spoiled owl who sees herself as the most perfect little girl in the world, but is mostly just a selfish brat.
  • A Day in the Limelight: "Princess is Better than You" (though Claire shares a bit of it) and "Princess Harvey", both of which explain her obnoxious behaviour.
  • Attention Whore: Likes to cry out for attention on a regular basis.
  • Big Ol' Unibrow: Of the goofy variety.
  • Butt-Monkey / The Chew Toy: Her constant demands for attention often earn her some well-deserved karma.
  • Cross-Dressing Voices: She is voiced by Andres Salaff.
  • Fat Bastard: She's one of the chubbiest of the kids and easily the meanest.
  • Freudian Excuse: Her eccentric father is responsible for her behavior (he won't even let her play with dolls).
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: The other kids (especially Fee and Foo) regard her as very mean and obnoxious, and only hang out with her due to proximity. Harvey, however, does regard her as a friend.
  • Gonky Femme: Despite her masculine voice and burly body, she is clearly very interested in girly things.
  • I Just Want to Be Loved: She wishes her father was more attentive, as he rarely listens to her and spends more time "communicating" with crystals than his own daughter.
  • It's All About Me: Acts this way towards everyone.
  • Jerkass: She's one of the few characters in the show with little redeeming traits.
  • Large Ham: She has a very loud voice and tends to overreact at the slightest things.
  • Larynx Dissonance: Has the voice of a gruff adult male.
  • Narcissist: She pretty much thinks everyone in Littlebark Grove should be grovelling at her feet. In "Princess is Better than You", it's shown she perceives everyone as dirty peasants with her as their ruler.
  • No Indoor Voice: Her constant desire for attention means she's usually shouting when she talks.
  • Spoiled Brat: Due to her doting father, who gives her nothing but praise and awards.

    Rooter Wellington

  • Big Fun: Second to Technobear, but still a pretty good guy.

  • Meaningful Name: Wild boars love to root around on the forest floor.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Even though he's only a kid, he's been shown to be strong enough to do things like punch a thick tree trunk down with his bare hands.

    Terrybear "Technobear" Snapper
Voiced by: Mason Vaughn
A street-smart bear who loves techno music, the ladies, and partying. His adopted parents are a lovably sleazy pair of turtles who act like a Joisey couple.
  • A Day in the Limelight: "Terrybear" and "Technoscare".
  • Beary Friendly: He's a nice guy who happens to be a bear in a speedo.

  • Big Ol' Unibrow: Like Princess.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Has emergency boomboxes hidden throughout the woods for when he desperately needs to dance.

  • Expy: Personality and traits taken directly from Regular Show's Pops.
  • Gag Nose: His large hairy trunk-like nose that sits over his mouth.
  • Gentle Giant: One of the bigger characters in the show, but also quite sweet and lovable.
  • Keet: He's just a cheerful and happy-go-lucky guy.
  • Kindhearted Simpleton: While he tends to be rather naive, he is without a doubt one of the nicest denizens of Littlebark Grove this side of Harvey.
  • Manchild: Which is probably why he gets along with the kids of Littlebark Grove so well.
  • Mushroom Man: A big hairy one with a large nose. His cap sees to be removable though.
  • Nature Spirit: He's the guardian of the forest, albeit retired.
  • Nice Guy: To the point where he's more concerned about the fact he can't help Harvey when Harvey locks him out of the house than the fact his charge threw him out.
  • Older Than They Look: Despite his child-like character, he is apparently extremely ancient, as he's been seen in a flashback set in the Mesozoic and his career as a hero was stated to have taken place thousands of years ago.

  • Time Abyss: In "Ocean Promotion" he appears in a flashback set millions of years in the past. See Older Than They Look.

    Doctor Roberts
Voiced by: Matt Berry (in "The Spitting Tree", "Princess is Better Than You", "Certified Babysitter" and "Dad Band"), Jeff Bennett ("Princess is Better Than You" note , all other appearances)
Princess' friendly but eccentric father who follows New Age philosophy and medicine. He is a friend of Irving Beaks.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: Especially when it comes to crystals.
  • Doting Parent: He basically thinks Princess is the best thing in the whole wide world, giving her awards even when she clearly doesn't deserve them (which goes a long way to explaining Princess' spoiled attitude).
  • His Name Really Is "Barkeep": He's not actually a doctor. "Doctor" is just his name.
  • Large Ham: Given who voiced him initally it's a given.
  • Nice Guy: For all his eccentricities, he is a pretty friendly person.
  • Parental Neglect: He is responsible for his daughter's behavior as he prefers to spend most of his time dealing with his crystals instead and rarely ever pays attention to her.

    Moff Williamson
Voiced by: Dave Foley
A nerdy moth who is obsessed with steampunk culture. He is Irving's longtime friend.
  • A Day in the Limelight: "Steamgate".
  • Big Bad: Of the "Steampunks" special, where he's the crooked and clingy mayor of Steamburg who banished Harvey for petty, self-centered reasons and tries to stop him from coming back.
  • Butt-Monkey: The production team has described him as their "go-to character to be humiliated".
  • Cape Wings: His cape resembles closed wings. Strangely enough, he appears to lack actual wings.
  • Friend Versus Lover: Holds a petty grudge against Harvey and Miriam for taking time with Irving away from him as he is one of his only friends.
  • Goggles Do Nothing: Except make him more steampunky.
  • Informed Species: Really, the only moth features he has are the six limbs and fuzzy antennae.
  • Nerd: Of the steampunk variety. The Cold Opening of "Steampunks" shows he has gone through several other interests, including anime.
  • Nice Hat: His big top hat decorated with cogs.
  • No Social Skills: He has trouble making friends because of his quirky behavior and obsession with steampunk
  • Steampunk: He is a huge fan of steampunk technology, as indicated by his attire and the gizmos sitting around his home.
  • Stepford Smiler: Appears indifferent to most of the mayhem around him caused by the kids. As seen in "Steampunks", this is more or less how he masks his emotions when confronting Harvey, whom he has a deep setted resentment for (see Friend Versus Lover for why).
  • Younger Than They Look: Although his large mustache makes him seem more like a senior citizen, in "Nightclub Night", he says he's 35.

    Les Squirrels
Left to right:Long Jean, Jean Claude, and Jean Luc
Voiced by: André Sogliuzzo (Jean Luc), C.H. Greenblatt (the rest)
A gang of French squirrel criminals. They are made of Jean Luc (the second-in-command), Jean Claude (the one with the red hat), Sean Jean (the one with the blue headband), Bili Jean (the only female in the group), Long Jean (the one with the glasses), and Papa Jean (the morbidly obese leader with the beret).
  • A Day in the Limelight: While they appear in a fair number of episodes, they get central focus in "Operation Peanut Butter".
  • Anti-Villain: While unscrupulous and greedy, Les Squirrels are a very close-knit group and shown a fair bit of respect to the other characters when good deeds are done for them.
  • The Don: Papa Jean.
  • The Family for the Whole Family: They're essentially Littlebark Grove's more ineffectual version of the Mafia.
  • French Jerk: Though they do have their more sympathetic moments, they're essentially the closest thing that the show has to villains.
  • The Unintelligible: Most of the gang speaks in a weird mixture of squirrel noises and European-sounding gibberish, most notably Papa Jean.

    Officer Fredd
Voiced by: Michael-Leon Wooley
A large green caterpillar who enforces the law around Littlebark Grove with his trusty taser gloves.
  • Big Creepy-Crawlies: While still smaller than most of the characters, he's still pretty big for a caterpillar.
  • Eye-Obscuring Hat: His police helmet is a large leaf with a thin visor able to make expressions.
  • Harmless Electrocution: Since his enjoyment in electrocuting lawbreakers is largely Played for Laughs.
  • Hidden Depths: According to the show's official Instagram account, he plays the saxophone and considers himself something of a foodie. Despite his fondness of shocking lawbreakers, he mentions that his number one wish is for world peace, even if it put him out of a job.
  • Judge, Jury, and Executioner: Much like the character he's based on
  • Large Ham: Because he has No Indoor Voice.
  • My Nayme Is: Fredd is spelled with two D's, to reinforce the Judge Dredd connection.
  • The Napoleon: Don't let the fact that he stands only about waist high to Harvey and his friends fool you, Officer Fredd is not a cop to be messed with.
  • No Indoor Voice: You'd be hard-pressed to hear him talking in a low-key manner.
  • Rabid Cop: He has zero tolerance for lawbreakers, so expect to get a gratuitous amount of shocking if you cross him. On the other hand, he is pretty good at what he does, considering how little trouble Littlebark Grove usually has.
  • Shock and Awe: He has a pair of taser-like gloves to subdue criminals
    • Psycho Electro: Which he takes more than a little pleasure in using whenever possible.
  • Shout-Out: His name, helmet and general disposition towards lawbreakers is one to Judge Dredd.
