The Harvey Girls

    General 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/c10_0703_tv_jpg.jpg
  • Adaptation Personality Change: The main trio have different personalities than they did in the comics, with Dot now being a scientific neat freak and Audrey being a tomboyish adrenaline junkie. Lotta's is mostly carried over, but she is not portrayed as an overeater here, as she bulked up overnight as part of a sudden growth spurt.
  • Adorkable: They're all awkward in some way, yet still maintain a lot of charm.
  • Costume Evolution: The girls' old-fashioned dresses from the comics have been completely overhauled into more contemporary clothing.
  • Town Girls: Lotta is Femme, Audrey is Butch, and Dot is Neither.

    Audrey 

Voiced by: Stephanie Lemelin

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/little_audrey_harvey_street_kids.png
The Leader of the Harvey Girls, a cute but tough energetic tomboy. The self-proclaimed protector of Harvey Street.
  • Berserk Button: Calling her a "butt sandwich" will cause her to declare all-out water-balloon war with you.
  • Childish Tooth Gap
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander
  • Dreadful Musician: Terrible at playing the harmonica. In "Raccoon Hoarder Picture Show", she uses this as a threat to the raccoons.
  • Enmity with an Object: She seems to have an irrational dislike of potpourri, simply saying that it never works when Lotta suggests using it to mask the odor of the soup she's been feeding Marco in "Can't Purr-y Love".
  • Gadgeteer Genius: While she lacks Dot's intelligence, Audrey has built a full-size wooden water ride, a vibrating chair made entirely out of cats, and, in a case of MacGyvering, combined Christmas lights in such a way to generate artificial daylight visible from space. She retains this skill from her original incarnation, who in one short built a Rube Goldberg Device to wash dishes for her.
  • Gasshole: She burps rather frequently in Season 2, and is quite proud of her ability to do so, despite showing no such tendencies in Season 1. Perhaps someone on the writing staff realized between seasons that they had Misty Briarton voicing Audrey and decided to run with it.
  • The Leader
  • Mythology Gag: Her offscreen attempt to make a flaming trampoline in "Pretty in Pinkeye" explodes, burning her hair in a way that causes it to vaguely resemble that of her 1940's counterpart.
  • Prehensile Hair: Briefly has this ability for a gag in "The Great Brain Robbery" when Melvin eats her and the other Harvey Girls' special order ice cream treats. She shapes her top pigtail into an arm making a fist and prepares to punch Melvin, only to stop when she sees that he's suffered severe Brain Freeze and instead uses it to gauge his condition. This ability shows up again in "The Lice Storm" before she shaves her head.
  • Sibling Rivalry: With Zoe.
  • Sudden Eye Colour: Inverted; her eyes were blue in her original design, but per the show's art style they're now all black.
  • Verbal Tic: Has a tendency to use portmanteaus of synonyms in her speech (spectacular + stupendous = spectacu-pendous, annoying + irritating = annoy-itating, etc.), which is later revealed to have been taught to her by Zoe, who wanted to make her sound insane to others.
  • Wild Child: Has some elements of this, being drawn with oddly pronounced incisors in some scenes and occasionally exhibiting animalistic behavior such as squaring off against The Bow and Marco in "Cereal" and "Can't Purr-y Love". She becomes a proper example in "A Matter of Life and BFF" when Lotta's Indulgent Fantasy Segue depicts her being taken in by the raccoons.

    Dot 

Voiced by: Lauren Lapkus

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/little_dot_harvey_street_kids.png
The Smart Guy of the Harvey Girls, a serious perfectionist who has an interest in science. The CEO of Harvey Street Enterprises.

    Lotta 

Voiced by: Kelly McCreary

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/little_lotta_harvey_street_kids.png
The Nice Girl of the Harvey Girls, a friendly and caring idealist. The "snuggler and cuddler" of Harvey Street.
  • Acrofatic: She is quite chubby but is a graceful dancer and can be quick when she needs to.
  • Berserk Button: The Bloogey Boys learned the hard way not to insult glitter to Lotta's face: if you're sitting down, Lotta will exploit her Stout Strength and use whatever you're sitting on as a slingshot. Despite this, expect a soft, if painful, landing.
    Lotta: Glitter is magic and you know it!!
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Do not make her angry. She makes far more liberal use of her Stout Strength, and can bring her logic into Cloud Cuckoo Lander territory.
    • For example, when her friends point out serving a new, cute cat on the street its favorite stinky soup isn't making it her friend, Lotta, upset about the cute critter rejecting her, proceeds to rip and then chuck the Harvey Street Girls' refrigerator out of their trailer-clubhouse so she can try and find something which will make it like her.
  • The Big Girl
  • Bunnies for Cuteness: Lotta loves bunnies so much.
  • The Chick
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: To a lesser degree than Audrey.
  • Does Not Know Her Own Strength: She occasionally forgets about her Stout Strength, with hilarious consequences. For example, when a prank leaves her and the rest of the Harvey Street Girls literally glued to swing-set swings, she walks off disappointingly, unknowingly dragging the swing-set and her friends with her!
    • In another example, when she shows Tiny her overnight growth spurt, she accidentally rips the door off its hinges and embarrassingly shoves it back. When she takes off, she leaps into the sky and comes down with a Ground-Shattering Landing.
  • Dreadful Musician: Like Audrey, she's bad at a particular instrument, in her case, the piano. Her playing and singing are so bad that at the end of "Cheer and Present Danger", she unintentionally antagonizes a flock of pelicans that chase her, Audrey, and Dot off into the horizon.
  • Faster Than They Look: Lotta, despite her bulk, is a remarkably-coordinated dancer, and is able to dodge spitballs and catch suddenly-falling kids as though they were part of a dance routine.
  • Friend to All Living Things: She has many animal friends in the local Harvey Street ecosystem, and can even summon them with special calls.
    • One episode revolves around her trying to befriend one animal that doesn't like her because if she didn't she'd be "Friend to a large amount of living things" rather than a Friend to All Living Things.
    • This friendship does not apply to the raccoons, whose thieving ways continuously torments the kids of Harvey Street.
  • Gentle Giant: Despite her Stout Strength, Lotta is quite docile, prefers to end conflicts through mutual understanding, and is a friend to all animals.
  • Guttural Growler: Develops one whenever she gets angry.
  • Huge Schoolgirl: Lotta is at least a head taller than most of the cast other than Bobby the Elder.
  • I Got Bigger: She developed a growth spurt overnight.
  • Lovable Coward: Has an intense fear of Halloween and heights.
  • Nice Girl
  • Stout Strength: Retains her superhuman strength from the comics, though it's revealed at several points in the series it took a growth spurt to gain it.

  • Beauty Mark: Has one on the right side of her face.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: Has very prominent eyebrows compared to the rest of the cast.
  • Big Sister Bully: To Audrey, and how. Apparently, Audrey was forced to refer to her as "Her Majesty Queen President For Life Zoe" for the first six years of the former's life. She also once tried to mail Audrey to Abu Dhabi, convinced her that she was allergic to pizza, and sparked her hatred of raccoons by putting a raccoon in her bed.
  • Embarrassing First Name/Embarrassing Middle Name: As Audrey reveals, her full name is Zoelisha Bertha.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: She does seem to genuinely care about Maria and Stu and has a crush on "Mike Yank from fifth period English" In 'Bring It Prawn' she comes to Audrey's defence when a smug Melvin calls her a loser
  • Hypocritical Heartwarming: In 'Bring It Prawn' she says that no one is allowed to insult her sister (except for her)

    The Harvey Street Bow 

Voiced by: Grey DeLisle

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bow_harvey_street_kids.png
A very mysterious Creepy Child who often pops out of nowhere to say something weird.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: She loves to speak in non-sequiturs:
    "I'm dancing like everyone's watching". (When engaging in a street-wide ukulele dance party.)
    "Embarrassing secrets are normal. Like the crush you all have on me." (When responding to Lotta admitting she has a crush on a boy.)
    [Acting like she's buying something illegal] "Cape me." (When buying a truly-legitimate cape from Dot.)
  • Creepy Child: All the way. She can literally merge her eyes into one, is the only one on the block to enjoy cheesy B-movie violence, has no bones, and she even lives in an archetypal Old, Dark House. Nobody knows if she's truly human at all.
  • For Halloween, I Am Going as Myself
  • Nightmare Fetishist: Apparently lives alone in a creepy mansion and loves all things gothic and creepy.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: And a shortened version of that, as she is generally referred to as "The Bow".

  • Prematurely Grey-Haired: A wise old sage who is really just a year old than the rest of the kids.
