The Main Cast

    Jimmy Two-Shoes 
Voiced by: Cory Doran
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jimmy_6845.png

The titular character. The happy-go-lucky 14-year-old boy who somehow ended up in Miseryville and decided to stay there. The only truly cheerful person in town, Jimmy's goal is to spread happiness throughout Miseryville and have as much fun as possible with his friends, Beezy and Heloise, much to the chagrin of the town's devilish ruler, Lucius.


  • Adorkable: A sweet, friendly, fun-loving fellow who just wants to make everybody happy.
  • All-Loving Hero: He is on good terms with just about everyone in Miseryville, and is able to bring out the best in even the most evil of people, like Heloise. The only person who he can't get to like him is Lucius, and certainly not for lack of trying.
  • Ambiguously Bi: He has shown affection for females, though he's also a little too close to Beezy sometimes.
  • Anime Hair: A more simplified version of it.
  • Badass Adorable: He has his moments, but especially as Power Squid.
  • Big, Thin, Short Trio: The Thin to Beezy's Big and Heloise's Short.
  • Blithe Spirit: A Pollyanna who just loves to put smiles on other's faces in a world where everyone is expected to be unhappy.
  • Butt-Monkey: He can be one at times, especially in "Chez Beezy" and "Meet the Gnomans".
  • Cannot Keep a Secret: Way too excited and hyper to keep very many things to himself.
  • Catchphrase: "Like that's even possible!" and "Jimmy, you mad genius!".
  • Childish Tooth Gap: His so-called "Jimmy gap".
  • Cloudcuckoolander: His main characteristic is being an eccentric and silly guy, especially in later episodes.
  • The Cloudcuckoolander Was Right: Clever in all sorts of weird ways.
  • Does Not Like Spam: He cannot stand the taste of pickles, to the point of being terrified of them. He also says he doesn't like butterscotch in "The Product Tester".
  • Dumb Blonde: Not as dumb as Beezy though.
  • Fertile Feet: In the season 2 opening, where he literally spreads happiness to the people of Miseryville wherever he goes.
  • Fish out of Water: How he ended up in Miseryville is a mystery (unless you consider the pilot concept to be canon), but whatever the case, it seems he decided to stay there permanently.
  • Flanderization: Season 1 Jimmy is definitely somewhat of naive Cloudcuckoolander, but he also often had clever ideas and was, in some ways, the Only Sane Man. Season 2 Jimmy, in comparison, is a crazy idiot who cannot do anything remotely intelligent, with the Sanity Ball being passed solely between Lucius and Heloise instead.
  • The Fool: Sometimes, particularly in Season 2 episodes. Usually when he and Lucius are stuck in a situation together, Jimmy will always get the upper hand over Lucius through dumb luck.
  • "Freaky Friday" Flip: With Heloise at the end of "Monster Mutt".
  • Friend to All Living Things: Don't deny it. Even the monsters and demons who make up Miseryville are deserving of happiness to him.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Even his hair is so pure and innocent, it induces niceness upon Lucius when he takes it for himself.
  • The Heart: He's the friendliest guy in Miseryville.
  • Heroes Love Dogs: The nicest guy in Miseryville and owner of Cerbee.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Beezy.
  • Idiot Hair: Three clumps of it.
  • Idiot Hero: Sometimes. Other times he's clever in an unconventional way.
  • Incorruptible Pure Pureness: In a setting where nobody has much of a reason to be in a good mood, Jimmy is always in one.
  • Keet: An outgoing and enthusiastic boy.
  • Kiddie Kid: Despite being a teenager, he often does very childish things.
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: His sweet and kindhearted personality makes him the Feminine Boy to the violent and short-tempered Heloise's Masculine Girl.
  • Meaningful Name: His name comes from the term "goody two-shoes", referring to someone who makes a constant effort to be as good of a person as possible, often to the point of being a nuisance. Sound familiar?
  • Morality Pet: To Heloise. He's the only person she'll willingly do nice things for such as building a funfair or giving Miseryville a snow day.
  • Mysterious Past: Exactly where he came from, or why he's in Miseryville at all, is never revealed (unless you accept the pilot as canon).
  • Nice Guy: He might be the only truly nice person in Miseryville.
  • Nice Mean And Inbetween: His friendly optimism makes him the Nice to the sadistic Heloise's Mean and the mellow but hedonistic Beezy's Inbetween.
  • No Sense of Personal Space: As this line "Jimmy, Don't Be A Hero" indicates.
    "Friends watch friends sleep." note 
  • Oblivious to Love: Jimmy is either unaware or ignoring Heloise's increasingly-blatant attraction to him, though as the series goes on there are implications that he actually is aware to some extent.
  • Only Sane Man: Sometimes. Other times he's just as nutty as (or more than) the rest of Miseryville.
  • Ping-Pong Naïveté: His intelligence seems to be a Depending on the Writer thing ranging from a bit below average to Beezy-level dumb.
  • The Pollyanna: The only person in the aptly-named Miseryville to always sport a smile.
  • Sanity Ball: Got a number of chances to hold it in Season 1, such as in "Best Bud Battle" and "Monster Mutt".
  • Sarcasm-Blind: As this piece of dialogue from "The Big Date" demonstrates.
    Lucius: Well, I hope you're happy, Two-Shoes.
    Jimmy: Aw, thanks Lucy. I'm a little bummed about the plane and Jez, but other than that I'm pretty happy!
  • The Straight Man: He can be this to the other characters, acting fairly normal (for him) so that Beezy, Heloise, or Lucius can play off of him. "The Competition" is a good example.
  • Token Good Teammate: Considering that his best friends are a Mad Scientist and a hedonistic idiot, he could definitely be considered this.
  • Token Human: If Heloise isn't human.
  • Too Kinky to Torture: So much so that the episode "The Product Tester" was based around this.
  • Too Spicy For Yog Sogoth: The whole point of the show is that Miseryville can't break him.
  • Took a Level in Dumbass: In season 1, Jimmy was an oblivious airhead, but was shown to have genuine moments of cunning, (if admittedly odd ones). Some writers even went as far as to make him the Straight Man to Beezy and Heloise. In season 2, he's as dumb as Beezy, even more childish and oblivious, and more prone to making things worse than ever due to his own idiocy, with hardly a moment of intelligence in sight.
  • Unfazed Everyman: Has shades of this when he's not being the Idiot Hero.
  • Unknown Rival: He's unaware that Lucius hates him.
  • Vague Age: He's supposedly around 14, but Word of God said his exact age is purposely kept ambiguous in order to tell a wider range of stories.
  • Verbal Tic: Says "awesmazing" a lot. Other characters say it too, but he does it the most.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Jimmy is terrified of pickles.
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist: The only person to see anything good about living in what is essentially a cartoon version of Hell.

    Beezy J. Heinous 
Voiced by: Brian Froud
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/beezy_2778.png

Jimmy's best friend. He is a large, red, demon-like monster and the son of Lucius Heinous VII, the evil ruler of Miseryville. He is much bigger than his father, but is instead lazy, gluttonous, and dimwitted. He'd rather lounge about and have fun with Jimmy than learn to govern Miseryville and inherit Misery Inc., much to his father's dismay.


  • Anti Anti Christ: He's son of the Devil, but also a lazy idiot who just wants to have fun.
  • Anti-Villain: Despite his lineage, Beezy much prefers hanging out with Jimmy and Heloise to spreading misery, much to his father's dismay.
  • Bad Liar: Often. For instance, this dialogue from "Jimmy in the Big House".
    Jimmy: Hey. Where did all my money go?
    Beezy (carrying a large amount of cash): Heloise took it.
  • Beta Couple: With Saffi. While the two's relationship isn't frequently highlighted, it's certainly more than what heloise has got going on with Jimmy.
  • Big Eater: He practically does nothing but eat and sleep.
  • Big Fun: Tends to bring out lots of fun when he's in a good mood.
  • The Big Guy: The chubbiest and tallest of the trio.
  • Big Red Devil: All of the other Heinouses (except the first one) are small red devils.
  • Big, Thin, Short Trio: The Big to Jimmy's Thin and Heloise's Short.
  • Butt-Monkey: Prone to lots of physical harm (as per everyone else in the show), particularly if Heloise is involved.
  • Catchphrase: Often uses "No, you are!" as an argument, even when it makes no sense in the context. ESPECIALLY when it makes no sense in the context. As of season 2, he also likes to add "Burn!" to whenever someone is insulted.
  • Collector of the Strange: Chewed gum and mustard (the latter of which he bathes in).
  • The Ditz: "What's a four-letter word for round, bouncy toy?"..."Bill!"
  • Does Not Like Shoes: Or shirts, for that matter. Sweaters are apparently fine, however, as per "Better Sweater".
  • Does Not Like Spam: He doesn't like pizza crusts, which literally came back to haunt him in "Ghostsmackers".
  • Dumbass Teenage Son: To Lucius, who calls him "his disappointment".
  • Embarrassing Middle Name: The "J" stands for "Jojo".
  • Extreme Omnivore: Has eaten rocks, balloons, nails (implied), Samy (In all fairness, Cerbee's brain was in his body at the time), and many more ridiculous things.
  • Fantastic Racism: Hates weavils very strongly.
  • Fat Best Friend: He's a lot bigger than his best bud Jimmy.
  • Fat Idiot: He gives Patrick a run for his money.
  • Flanderization: While he did have his Jerkass Ball moments in Season 1 (like in "Baby Boom" and "Meet the Gnomans"), he was generally mellow and never as evil as Lucius. But in Season 2, he's frequently just as bad as his father, to the point where the people of Miseryville hate him just as much as Lucius. For example, in "Going Green", where he gets starving children to play "Simon Says" and the losers get beat up Lucius' Minotaurs for his amusement.
  • "Freaky Friday" Flip: Heloise switches him with Cerbee in "Monster Mutt".
  • Gasshole: Usually of the belching kind. It's even his superpower as Spaghetti Beezy.
    Rodeo Clown: Oooh, that's disgusting! Seriously. Go see a doctor.
  • Gentle Giant: He's plump, but he's (usually) friendly.
  • The Hedonist: Beezy always does whatever gives him the most pleasure at the moment, no matter how stupid, dangerous, or selfish it is.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Jimmy, often to the point of Ho Yay.
  • Horned Humanoid: Since he's Lucius' son, he shares his dad's tiny horns.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: With Saffi, who is about half his size.
  • Inadequate Inheritor: He's next in line for the throne of Miseryville and ownership of Misery Inc., but he'd rather having fun with his friends, to Lucius' resentment.
  • Jerkass Ball: Gets hit by this often, especially in season 2. In "She Loves Me", he casually breaks up with Saffi just to chase the Girl of the Week. It was Played for Laughs though.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He may be a lazy, selfish hedonist, but when the chips are down he can usually be counted on to have Jimmy's back.
  • Lazy Bum: To the point where he actually schedules his laziness and treats them as deadlines to be met.
  • Louis Cypher: Of Beelzebub (except in the pilot, where he is explicitly Beelzebub).
  • Meaningful Name: Comes from Beelzebub, who represents the sin of Gluttony and is closely associated (or even synonymous) with Satan, befitting his family dynamic with Lucius.
  • Missing Mom: Just who IS his mother?
  • Mysterious Middle Initial: Until "The Great Horn Fairy". Turns out it's Jo-Jo.
  • Nice Mean And Inbetween: His slothful but otherwise decent nature makes him the Inbetween to the cheerful Jimmy's Nice and the psychopathic Heloise's Mean.
  • Non-Human Sidekick: He's Jimmy's devil-like monster best friend.
  • Odd Name Out: He's the only Heinous family member not named Lucius.
  • Official Couple: With Saffi until he breaks up with her in "She Loves Me".
  • Poisonous Friend: At his worst towards Jimmy.
  • Properly Paranoid: Against the Weavils.
  • Really 700 Years Old: He has his own house and is old enough to get married, so he's likely a fully grown devil, possibly at least over a hundred years old (since Lucius is around seven-hundred). Still, he acts like lazy teenager or college frat boy, and seems to still be under Lucius's care.
  • Rock Me, Asmodeus!: He's apparently quite good at playing rock guitar, as seen in "Heloise's Secret Admirer".
  • Royal Brat: As the son of Lucius, he's basically the second most important person in Miseryville, but has none of the qualifications.
  • Simpleton Voice: His voice actor, Brian Froud, described it as a bad impression of Brad Garrett that then evolved from there.
  • The Slacker: He once took it as far as to cryogenically freeze himself so he would never have to do anything ever again!
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: He's became more obnoxious and selfish in season 2 due to Flanderization.
  • Too Kinky to Torture: In "Powersquid and Spaghetti Beezy", he's shown to be enjoying electrocution by Heloise. In "Best Bud Battle", he found being pulled on a stretch rack to be relaxing (though not at first).
  • Trash of the Titans: He literally rents space to garbage, and in one episode, his home was referred to as the most disgusting place in all of Miseryville.
  • Unsympathetic Comedy Protagonist: More often in later episodes. "Fused Together" is a good example.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: He very rarely wears a shirt.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Though Beezy and his father don't always get along, he tries to earn Lucius' respect, to... varying degrees of success.
  • White Sheep: He's nowhere near as evil as the rest of his family, being more hedonistic as opposed to their outright maliciousness.
  • Why Couldn't You Be Different?: Lucius' relationship with him can be summed up most easily with this trope.

    Heloise 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/heloise_5924.png

A very intelligent 14-year-old girl and Jimmy's other best friend. She works for Misery Inc. as their top inventor in making hazardous products for bringing people misery. She is a sadistic and violent sociopath who enjoys tormenting anyone she hates - and that is more or less anyone not named Jimmy Two-Shoes. She has a biiig crush on Jimmy.


    Cerbee 
Voiced by: Sean Cullen
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cerbee_better.PNG

Jimmy's pet monster dog. Despite his diminutive appearance, he's pretty gluttonous and will eat nearly anything. He is also very energetic, meaning he often gets into trouble when Jimmy's not looking.


  • Big Eater: Has consumed objects several times his size with only a very brief change in shape.
  • Call a Smeerp a "Rabbit": Sure, he acts like a dog, is named after a dog, and everybody calls him a dog, but he definitely doesn't look anything like one. Concept art had Cerbee as an actual dog though.
  • Canine Companion: Well, close enough...
  • Cyclops: Like many of Miseryville's animals, he has only one eye.
  • Extreme Omnivore: Among other things, he has been shown eating balloons with no ill effect (unless farting out balloon animals is one).
  • "Freaky Friday" Flip: Heloise switches him with Beezy in "Monster Mutt".
  • Hell Hound: Could be considered one based on the setting and his equivalency to a dog, but he's generally pretty harmless.
  • Hollywood Acid: His pee. He once melted a sign with it.
  • Informed Species: Everyone calls him a dog, but it's pretty clear that this horned, one-eyed creature is merely a dog-like monster.
  • Louis Cypher: Of Cerberus, albeit In Name Only.
  • Meaningful Name: Comes from Cerberus, the three-headed hound who guards the gates of the Underworld in Classical Mythology and also appears in Dante's Inferno.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Just look at him! D'aww!

    Lucius Heinous VII 
Voiced by: Sean Cullen
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lucy_2661.png

The seventh ruler of Miseryville and CEO of Misery Inc. He is a short, red, devil-like creature and the father of Beezy J. Heinous. Very much unlike his son, he delights in the suffering of his subjects and his own megalomania. He hates Jimmy due to his unbreakable happy attitude being a foil to his misery-spreading plans. He is dating Jez.


  • 0% Approval Rating: Which is a given when your subjects are forced to be always miserable. Not that it bothers him.
  • A Wizard Did It: Word of God is that all the weird stuff that happens in the show is caused by his Reality Warper powers.
  • Abusive Parent: However, he's a better parent to his son than his father was to him.
  • Bad Boss: Anyone working for his company gets no vacations, no sick days, and no bathroom breaks, and the longest they can get for rest is five seconds.
  • Bad is Good and Good is Bad: Often. The idea of anyone but him being in a good mood sickens him, and he often talks about misery in the same way most would talk about being happy.
  • Bastard Understudy: He overthrew his father to get his position.
  • Berserk Button: He already has a pretty short temper, but as Samy learned the hard way, mocking his height is the worst thing you can do.
  • Big Bad: He's the closest thing to a main villain on the show, but a lot of episodes focus on him. Not surprisingly, we learn more about him then.
  • Break the Haughty: This keeps happening to Lucius. For example, in "Spew-Tube", an embarrassing home video turns him into the town's laughingstock to the point where they refuse to take him seriously at all.
  • Burning with Anger: Sometimes. He once had a freakout about his head catching on fire when it occurred though.
  • Butt-Monkey: Considering that he likes to spread misery, he has it coming.
  • The Caligula: Has destroyed every washroom in Miseryville just because Jimmy tried to use his, approved of his son's brain being switched with an animal, casually ordered one of the world's three suns to be destroyed, and stolen all the city's water to fill his pool. And that's just the tip of the iceberg.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: Takes great pride in how he brings misery to his subjects.
    Lucius: It's all about the evil. You think of it. You are it.
  • Catchphrase: "Misery Niblets!" as of season 2.
  • Clasp Your Hands If You Deceive: Often when he comes up with something evil to do.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: Though, considering that Misery Inc. already runs the town anyway, he's seen more as a dictator.
  • The Devil Is a Loser: The weakest and least dangerous of Miseryville's seven rulers.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Prone to giving these, such as blowing up a horn salon for giving him a bad manicure and having his high school teacher's head mounted on a wall for making fun of his horns.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: Often called "Lucy" by Jimmy, much to his annoyance.
  • Evil Is Hammy: Thanks to being voiced by Sean Cullen.
    Lucius: I want my carnival to cast a giant shadow of gloom all over Miseryville! (Evil Laugh)
  • Evil Is Petty: Even when not bossing his employees at Misery Inc., he's still making sure everybody's miserable in his personal life.
  • Evil Laugh: Possesses a number of these.
  • Evil Overlord: A cartoonish and incompetent one, anyways.
  • Evil vs. Evil: Whenever against the Weavils or, in one episode, the Rodeo Clowns.
  • Exposition of Immortality: According to "Bad Horn Day", it took him 400 years just to grow his horns. And in "Heinous vs. Clown", he claims to be "barely 700" when Jimmy and Beezy make fun of his age. It's likely he's immortal considering that he's pretty much meant to be Satan.
  • Faux Affably Evil: As expected from an Expy of Satan, his politeness is mainly a facade for bringing in more misery to his subjects.
  • Fiction 500: He is so wealthy that he spends more on trivial things for himself than it costs to run Misery Inc.
  • Flanderization: His Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain status is taken Up to Eleven in the second season to the point where he barely qualifies as even a Jerkass in certain episodes.
  • Follow in My Footsteps: He wants Beezy to inherit the family business. He has absolutely no luck whatsoever.
  • For the Evulz: Lucius is evil for the sake of being evil. The sole focus of his Mega-Corp is to make people miserable.
  • Glad I Thought of It: A very common occurrence. Has bitten him back in the ass a couple times like in "Cellphone-itis" where his constant self-credit for Heloise's "Sardiner" (a machine that fuses monsters together) results in him and Samy becoming the first victims.
  • Greed: He owns everything in Miseryville and works hard to make sure this is always the case.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Particularly when it involves a certain Two-Shoes...
  • Harmless Villain: Is just barely feared by his subjects, constantly harmed and humiliated, and when he does win there tends to be a hefty price at his expense.
  • Horned Humanoid: Being a cartoony version of Satan, he has very tiny horns that he takes great pride in.
  • Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: While powerful enough to keep his iron grip over Miseryville largely unopposed, he's still pretty pathetic.
  • It's All About Me: Constantly. His image is plastered pretty much everywhere in the city for starters.
  • Jerkass: Big time. It's not only his job to make people miserable, but his passion. Not even his son is safe from his cruelty.
  • Jet Pack: He uses one a handful of times in Season 1.
  • Kick the Dog: Justified, since it's his job - nay, his purpose in life - to bring misery.
  • Lack of Empathy: This guy lives to make people miserable! What did you think?
  • Laughably Evil: A ruthless tyrant who revels in the suffering of his people, and yet quite hilarious.
  • Louis Cypher: Except in the pilot, where he is explicitly Satan.
  • Manchild: Often. He's obsessed with his stuffed animals, demands huge amounts of gifts for his birthday that he then throws away, and throws tantrums whenever things don't go his way.
  • Man of Wealth and Taste: His life is shown to be quite luxurious, with vast amounts of treasure and plenty of pampering from servants (at their expense).
  • Miles Gloriosus: A lot. Like that time he declared that he would slay a moon beast, only to chicken out when he really does meet one.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Comes from Lucifer, who represents the sin of Pride and is usually seen as being another name for Satan.
  • The Napoleon: The guy only stands at about Jimmy's waist, but has a temper matching that of a much larger demon.
  • Narcissist: There's a reason why his visage is everywhere in Miseryville.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: Word of God has said Lucius actually has some terrible and threatening powers, to the point where he could bend the planet to his will, but he keeps them in check / refuses to use them to prove he doesn't need to use them in order to rule.
  • Obviously Evil: Come on, he's supposed to be the Devil. What did you expect?
  • Playing with Fire: It's more of a running gag, though he does it pretty consistently.
  • Pointy-Haired Boss: Although Heloise greatly compensates Misery Inc. for this.
  • Pride: Being based on Lucifer, this is a fairly obvious result, seeing as his visage is decorated all over the city, especially in his mansion.
  • Reality Warper: According to Word of God, but the reason why he never uses his power to its maximum potential is because he wants to prove to everyone he doesn't need to use it.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Just barely 700, actually.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: His bunny pajamas.
  • Sanity Ball: Prone to holding it when Jimmy and Beezy are involved, especially in Season 2 episodes.
  • Satan: Sort of. More a Captain Ersatz of him (except in the pilot where he is directly Satan).
  • Self-Made Orphan: ...not exactly? He didn't kill his father, he just... cryogenically froze him. And keeps him in a basement, away from public view. He thaws him out sometimes.
  • Shrine to Self: Lucius's home is decorated with pictures of himself and the other Heinouses.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: He's not as great as spreading misery as he likes to think he is, considering that the one person he can't break is a none-too-bright boy who doesn't get he's supposed to be evil.
  • Smug Snake: Oh, so much. He fancies himself as an almighty dictator whose subjects live in constant despair, but in reality, none of the characters fear him or take him seriously. He does occasionally make a reminder of why he's the one in charge though.
  • So Proud of You: Lucius as these moments with Beezy whenever the latter does something evil.
  • Sore Loser: As demonstrated in "Way Below Par". His response to losing a golf game is getting a gigantic, obese demon to do a cannonball that causes a tsunami that wipes out the winner and the audience.
  • Team Rocket Wins/The Bad Guy Wins: Sometimes, notably "The Product Tester" and "Catalogue of Misery" being some of the few instances where he gets the upper hand over Jimmy and avoids getting humiliated in the end.
  • Tiny Guy, Huge Girl: With Jez, who is almost three times taller than him.
  • Too Important to Walk: On occasion, with Samy as the walker.
  • Unknown Rival: Jimmy considers Lucius a friend. This is because Jimmy's such a pollyanna that he's completely unaware of just how much he is loathed by Lucius.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: It's implied in several flashbacks that he was this but became the cruel and hateful monster he is today due to his miserable childhood.
  • Villain Decay: In Season 2, where he became less of a Card-Carrying Villain and started be referred to by the other characters as being just outright "lame".
  • Villainous Glutton: Despite his diminutive appearance, he has consumed an entire buffet for lunch, owns all the city's chocolate for himself, and wanted a cake above all else for his birthday.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Despite the way he treats him, he cites Samy as his best friend. Samy may also be his only friend, so this might be based in technicality rather than genuine friendship.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: As noted above, his pride stops him from using his powers.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Gets along with his own father even less than Beezy does with him.

    Samuel "Samy" Garvin 
Voiced by: Dwayne Hill
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Samy_Garvin_4897.png

Lucius's grovelling, goblin-like assistant who dreams of entering the show business for stardom and fame. He is timid and often abused by his boss for the latter's amusement. He used to serve Lucius' father, Lucius Heinous VI, doing so for 87 years.

Other Characters

    Jez 
Voiced by: Valerie Buhagiar
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/363px-Jez_8678.png

Lucius's girlfriend who is tall, blue and can change her noses. She is often very picky in her dates with him and often threatens to break up with him. She lives in a white mansion and owns a pet dog named Jazmeen, whom Cerbee once fell in love with.


    Saffi 
Voiced by: Sunday Muse
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/saffi_6995.png

Beezy's girlfriend, who is an orange-skinned, one-eyed creature. She hates statues and destroys any she sees. She usually spouts one-to-two-word phrases such as "Yogurt!" and "Smoothy-Smooth!" but occasionally speaks in sentences. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to it - she's just loony.


  • Anime Hair: Similar to Jez's above, but smaller.
  • Ascended Extra: She went from being a minor background character to becoming Beezy's girlfriend.
  • Ax-Crazy: While Saffi's generally pretty nuts, she turns ferociously psychotic whenever she sees statues.
  • Beta Couple: With Beezy until Season 2 that is.
  • Catchphrase: "Smoothy-Smooth!" (her pet name for Beezy) and "Yogurt!"
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: Most of her lines consist of random words like "Yogurt!" or "Crush!", and she generally acts more like a crazy animal than a civilized person.
  • Collared by Fashion: A nasty spiked collar befitting her animalistic personality.
  • Cute and Psycho: A Cute Monster Girl with the behavior of a wild animal.
  • Cute Bruiser: Despite her cutesy appearance, she's been shown smashing statues like glass- and eating through them, too. Eating through them. Through stone. Eating. With her teeth.
  • Cute Monster Girl: One of several in the show, but she gets the most attention from the fans.
  • Cyclops: One of several on the show, but easily the most distinctive one
  • Dark Skinned Red Head: She's got red-orange skin.
  • Establishing Character Moment: In her debut episode "Jimmy Matchmaker"; she pops out of a random garbage can, squats on the ground in a Primal Stance whilst randomly barking "Yogurt!", then snatches off one of Jimmy's shoes and swallows it whole before standing up and burping up a shoelace, which she sucks back up like a string of spaghetti.
  • Extreme Omnivore: Has eaten rocks, shoes, tires, and probably more.
  • Fiery Redhead: Dark red hair with an energetic and wild attitude.
  • Genki Girl: She's definitely pretty energetic.
  • Hartman Hips: You can't quite see it in her picture above, but they're very noticeable in some shots.
  • Horned Humanoid: Two small ones hidden in her hair.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: With Beezy, who is about twice her size.
  • Official Couple: With Beezy until they broke up in "She Loves Me".
  • Only One Name: Unlike her boyfriend or Jimmy, she's only known by her first name.
  • Out of Focus: Disappeared for most of Season 2, despite appearing more prominently in the intro.
  • Pointy Ears: Very small ones.
  • Redhead In Green: Not to mention that she's also a reddish-orange person in green.
  • Satellite Love Interest: Like Jez, she usually only appears when her romance with Beezy is important for the episode, like in "I Married a Weavil" when Beezy tries to use her as an excuse to get out of having to marry the Weavil Princess. "Catalogue of Misery" is the sole exception to this.
  • Stocking Filler: Of the fishnets kind, though its kinda tricky to tell because of the artstyle.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Of the thigh-high variety.

    General Molotov 
Voiced by: Dwayne Hill
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/molotov_better.PNG

Head of Lucius' muscle, Molotov is large and in charge... whenever he isn't being bossed around by his wife (a four-armed, one-eyed creature known only as Mrs. Molotov). He also has a troublemaking son named Tory and a baby daughter named Blammo (who spews large amounts of pink slime from her mouth); both of whom have his orange skin and small horns. He speaks in a vaguely Russian accent.


  • Animals Hate Him: The feeling is mutual.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: Almost always wears a black suit similar to that of a bodyguard, as he's acted as one for Lucius on numerous occasions.
  • Big Ol' Unibrow: Of the malevolent variety.
  • The Brute: To Lucius.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: Made a few minor appearances in early episodes before becoming a consistent recurring cast member.
  • Drill Sergeant Nasty: When he's on the job. He's even been seen wearing a uniform not unlike that of a boot camp officer.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: Referred as "Momo" by Jimmy in the second season, despite Jimmy calling him Mr. Molotov prior to that.
  • Henpecked Husband: In contrast with his work life, he's completely subordinate to Mrs. Molotov when at home.
  • Horned Humanoid: Two very small ones. His children also share this.
  • Husky Russkie: Big strong guy with a Russian accent. Yup.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: He's likely named after Vyacheslav Molotov, Stalin's protege in Communist Russia, but some have suggested it's meant to be a pun on "Moloch" to fit with the show's Theme Naming.
  • Only One Name: It seems to be his last name since he's been called Mr. Molotov and his wife is known as Mrs. Molotov.
  • Papa Wolf: Best demonstrated in "Baby Boom", where he goes on a furious rush back home to pulverize Jimmy and Beezy for supposedly harming his children (The whole story that made him come back was actually a lie from his son though).
  • Pitiful Worms: Uses "maggot" so much that it pretty much became his Verbal Tic in later episodes.
  • Pointy Ears: Very small ones.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: He's really only evil when doing Lucius' bidding. Outside of work, he's more of a Family Man.
  • Top-Heavy Guy: His waist is ridiculously tiny compared to his chest!
  • Unexplained Accent: His wife also has a Russian accent, yet his children do not. However, it should be noted that this is not uncommon in families who have migrated from other countries. Children raised in an environment will often take on the accent of that environment, so it's safe to say that Molotov and his wife were born and raised somewhere other than Miseryville, whereas his children have been born and raised there.

    Lucius Heinous VI 
Voiced by: Sean Cullen
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Lucius_Heinous_VI_8418.png

The sixth ruler of Miseryville, Lucius VII's father and Beezy's grandfather. He's even crueler and more evil than his son. He is rather old and is in a wheelchair, with his limbs occasionally falling off. Lucius overthrew and cryogenically froze him many years ago, but he's defrosted every now and then for various reasons.


  • Abusive Parent: He wouldn't even give his son a cake on his birthday. And it wasn't like the junior Lucius had done anything bad, it was just For the Evulz.
  • Aww, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: Seems to lighten up to his son sometimes, as seen in "Heinous on Ice", where he only wanted to spend time with him on his own birthday.
  • Bad is Good and Good is Bad: Much like his son, he thinks of misery as a good thing for the people of Miseryville and hates to see anyone but him being happy.
  • Bastard Understudy: Overthrew his father, Lucius V, to get his position. The same thing happened to him later.
  • Big Red Devil: He's only slightly bigger than his diminutive son, but still smaller than Beezy and his ancestor Lucius I.
  • The Caligula: Case in point: When unfrozen for the first time, one of his first acts was to flood the city with an ocean-sized raindrop to get back into the mood.
  • Evil Cripple: He may be bound to a wheelchair and falling apart in his old age, but he's still as tyrannical as he was the day he was frozen.
  • Evil Is Hammy: Like father, like son. They are both voiced by Sean Cullen after all.
    Lucius VI (about to flood Miseryville with a giant raindrop): I want BIIIIIIGGGG RAAAIIINNNN!
  • Evil Old Folks: He's only the third youngest of the Heinous family, but still pretty ancient by their standards.
  • Eviler Than Thou: His relationship with his son. When he gets unfrozen for the first time, he begins deriding his son's inefficiency in making misery.
  • Horned Humanoid: Like all the other Heinouses (except the first), he has very tiny horns.
  • Jerkass: Even more than his son is and will ever be.
  • Louis Cypher: Of Lucifer, like his son.
  • Multiple-Choice Past: Every time the subject of why he was frozen by Lucius comes up, it's always a different story. In "Pop-Sicles", Lucius VI himself says "every time there's an argument someone gets frozen". In "A Night at the Heinous Museum", it's shown to be Lucius VII beating him in a bet over bowling. In "Bird-Brained", Lucius VI gave a bird to Lucius VII to help him make decisions, only for the junior Lucius to ask if he should freeze his father.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: The exact same as his son's but with one less "I".
  • Pulling Themselves Together: His arms and nose have fallen off in some episodes from being frozen too long.
  • Satan: If not, an Expy like his son and his father Lucius V.

    Dr. Ludwig Von Scientist 
Voiced by: Dwayne Hill
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Dr_Scientist_3870.png

A demon evil genius with a German accent who somewhat resembles an owl. He's not employed by Misery Inc., but he is Heloise's arch-rival in mad science. That doesn't stop Jimmy and Beezy from occasionally consulting him for help when Heloise isn't available.


    Dorkus 
Voiced by: Dwayne Hill
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Dorkus_7136.png

A tiny one-eyed demon who is Heloise's lab assistant. He often has invention ideas of his own, but they're not very good. Heloise has numerous clones of him in case he's ever injured, killed, or lost...which is often.


  • Ascended Extra: Began as a minor recurring character before his position as Heloise's assistant was cemented later on.
  • Beleaguered Assistant: Constantly has to do Heloise's dirty (and always dangerous) work.
  • Butt-Monkey: He is to Heloise as Samy is to Lucius, though Dorkus has it arguably worse.
  • Catchphrase: He always says "You love it! You know you do!" whenever he attempts to pitch one of his terrible invention ideas to Lucius or Heloise.
  • Creepy Crossdresser: In "Zombie Pickle".
    Dorkus: Uhhh. You [Jimmy] probably shouldn't tell Heloise about this.
  • Cyclops: Only has one eye (with one spectacle likewise).
  • Horned Humanoid: Two very small horns on his head.
  • Lilliputians: Though not as small as the Racing Fleas or Gnomans, he's still pretty tiny.
  • Pointy Ears: Like many of Miseryville's monsters, he's got a pair.
  • Unfortunate Name: What kind of demon is called Dorkus?!

    Rudolpho and Peep

Rudolpho
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Peep_the_Salesman_7997.jpg
Peep
A father/son team of Cockney-accented con artists who live to swindle the people of Miseryville out of their money. Rudolpho will sell you just about anything, but expect it to have some kids of flaw, while Peep will merely pick your pockets and might sell them to someone else.
  • Affably Evil: The two of them, despite being con-men, don't really hold any ill will towards our main characters. They're just interested in the profits.
  • The Artful Dodger: Peep's pretty street-smart, although unlike most examples, he does have a home to call in the form of his dad's mobile shop.
  • Ascended Extra: Rudolpho only appeared once in the first season ("Jimmy Gets A 'Stache") before becoming a member of the recurring cast in Season 2. Peep, on the other hand, never appeared at all in Season 1, unlike all the other characters listed on this page.
  • Bald of Evil: Rudolpho, under his hat.
  • Evil Brit: Not so much evil as greedy and conniving, but they've both got British accents (specifically Cockney) too.
  • Fingerless Gloves: Peep wears these.
  • Gold Tooth: Peep. Apparently it helps him whistle.
  • Honest John's Dealership: Rudolpho's thing, but Peep dabbles in this too. He has no qualms about picking up "barely chewed gum" so he can resell it later.
  • Hopeless Suitor: Peep is this to Heloise, apparently being completely unable to understand that she only wants Jimmy.
  • Horned Humanoid: Peep, under his hat.
  • I Reject Your Reality: Peep seems to not get that Heloise doesn't like him, no matter how angrily she states it.
  • Missing Mom: Rudolpho doesn't seem to have a wife and Peep doesn't seem to have a mother.
  • Nice Hat: Both characters, with Rudolpho's vaudeville straw hat and Peep having a beanie.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Peep claims his real name is Jamie Two-Squirrels. Considering his dishonest nature, it is debatable whether this is true or not.
  • Pointy Ears: Peep has two very small ones.
  • Sticky Fingers: Peep has a natural propensity for this.
  • Unexplained Accent: Cockney for both, due to the stereotype of Cockneys as being dishonest criminals.
  • Villain Song: Peep has "Everyone can Whistle" from the episode of the same name.
  • Villainous Crush: Peep has a crush on Heloise, but naturally she only has eyes for Jimmy.
  • Why Can't I Hate You?: Jimmy and Peep hit it off quite well on non-Heloise topics in "Heloise's Secret Admirer".

    Chief Reginald "Reggie" Weavil 
Voiced by: Dwayne Hill
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/weavil_chief.PNG

The leader of the weavils, a race of weasel-like monsters who live in the forests of Mount Misery, Miseryville's tallest peak. He has a fierce rivalry with the Heinous family (who loathe his kind) but is every bit as unscrupulous as they are. He has countless children.


  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": Is only referred by his first name in his first appearance.
  • Evil vs. Evil: Whenever he is against Lucius.
  • Faux Affably Evil: In the same vein as Lucius. He and the rest of his kin often use their harmless appearances to cause strife to other Miseryvillians.
  • Jerkass: Primarily to the Heinouses, but he's not above exploiting Jimmy or some other Miseryvillian if it benefits him.
  • Manipulative Bastard: In "Invasion Of The Weavils", he takes advantage of Jimmy's hospitality to let himself mooch off his food and play loud music with his underlings.
  • The Napoleon: Though not as badly as Lucius, he's still not a pleasant guy, despite his size.
  • Nice Hat: He never takes it off either.
  • Species Surname: "Weavil" is both his last name and his species' name.
  • Wicked Weasel: His entire species are an example.

    The Rodeo Clowns 
Voiced by: Ron Pardo (Rodeo Clown Leader)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/clowns.PNG

A gang of monsters dressed as clowns who dominate a part of Miseryville known as Clownburg. They are bikers who play mean-spirited jokes on the people of Miseryville, including Jimmy and Lucius. The primarily seen members are a large one-eyed guy in red, a four-armed fellow in green, a long-legged man in purple, and the diminutive leader recognizable by his top hat and tuxedo.


  • All Bikers Are Hells Angels: Despite being clowns, they act like this sometimes.
  • Clown Car: Their other method of transportation, seen in their debut episode.
    Leader: I don't see why we always have to use the small car.
  • Evil vs. Evil: "Heinous vs. Clown" pits them against Lucius.
  • Horned Humanoid: The Rodeo Clown leader has two very tiny horns on his head.
  • Jerkass: They love to pull nasty pranks on any Miseryvillian who gets in their way, as Jimmy found out the hard way when he first met them.
  • Monster Clown/Villainous Harlequin: While almost literal examples of the former, they tend to act more like the latter.
  • The Napoleon: The leader of the Rodeo Clowns is almost like Lucius' long-lost brother.
  • Pie in the Face: One of their favorite practical jokes.
