General

     All 
  • Aerith and Bob: There are weird names like "Stumpy" and "Quack Quack", but there's also a guy named Olaf.
  • Ambiguous Disorder: Kaeloo has a Jekyll & Hyde complex, is implied to have schizophrenia and suicidal thoughts, Stumpy has a Tourette's-like Character Tic, is implied to be mentally handicapped and is also suicidal in some episodes, Quack Quack seems to be an Idiot Savant, Mr. Cat shows all the symptoms of some sort of childhood conduct disorder, Pretty is a Narcissist who is obsessed with staying skinny, Olaf is a domineering guy who believes himself to be the world's emperor... everyone in Smileyland has issues, to say at least.
  • Ascended to Carnivorism: Stumpy, Pretty and Eugly can sometimes be seen eating meat products.
  • Comedic Sociopathy: With the exceptions of Quack Quack and Eugly, they all exhibit this.
  • Crying Critters: Despite being animals, all of them have cried at some point in the show. Yes, even Mr. Cat.
  • Dirty Kid: Kaeloo is a Covert Pervert, but Stumpy, Mr. Cat, Pretty and even Quack Quack have openly shown how perverted they are.
  • Four-Fingered Hands: All of them except Olaf have these. Justified, since they're animals.
    • Averted when Kaeloo and Mr. Cat turn into humans in Episode 176. Their human forms have five fingers on each hand.
  • Funny Animal: A frog, a squirrel, a duck, a cat, two rabbits and a penguin.
  • Humanlike Hand Anatomy: All of them have human-like Four-Fingered Hands even though the real life version of the animals don't. Quack Quack and Olaf have hands that are flat like wings, though.
  • Interspecies Friendship: Standard for shows featuring Funny Animals. This is an interesting case, though, as they aren't particularly nice to each other a lot of the time, especially in the case of the downright villainous and Ax-Crazy Mr. Cat.
  • Kids Are Cruel: All of them are children/preteens and considering what kind of show this is, all of them have their moments of cruelty, with Mr. Cat and Pretty being the most notable examples.
  • Meaningful Name:
    • "Kaeloo" means "frog" in Japanese (カエル - "Kaeru").
    • Subverted with Stumpy. He was originally going to have no arms, but he does have arms in the show proper. However, the name "Stumpy"/"Moignon" stuck.
    • Quack Quack can only say "quack".
    • Mr. Cat is a cat.
    • Pretty is pretty and Eugly (pronounced "ugly")... isn't.
    • Olaf's name means "ancestral heritage"; being born an emperor penguin was what spurred his decision to Take Over the World.
  • The Mentally Disturbed: One episode explained how all of them need intensive psychotherapy, except Olaf, who was absent in this episode. Other episodes suggest that Olaf is also insane just like the rest of them.
  • Minor Living Alone: Most of the episodes show the characters, who are all kids/preteens, living alone. However, the show has horrible continuity issues, so a few episodes show the characters who do have parentsnote  living at home with their parents.
  • Troubling Unchildlike Behavior: While Mr. Cat is the worst when it comes to this, all of them are prone to doing things that children shouldn't do, like drinking, using weapons or swearing. Pretty has gotten a facelift in the past and they are all fairly perverted.
  • Vague Age: Aside from Stumpy, who is 10, the ages of the rest of the characters are unknown.

     The Main Four 

     Secondary Characters 
  • Drop-In Character: They're the main four's neighbors, but they always casually show up uninvited to join them in whatever crazy antics they're up to.
  • Nice, Mean, and In-Between:
    • Nice: Prone to Tears Eugly, who is kind, friendly and always willing to help everyone.
    • Mean: Alpha Bitch Pretty, who believes that the world revolves around her, treats Eugly like her personal slave, and is mean to everyone else even if they're nice to her.
    • In-Between: Olaf, who is a mad scientist with a big ego and Hair-Trigger Temper who wants to Take Over the World, but is also willing to help the main characters if necessary and is occasionally nice to them.

The Main Four

    Kaeloo 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kaeloohopscotch.png
"Hey there, buddies!"

The series' protagonist, if you hadn’t guessed from the name. She is a frog who's basically the Nice Girl of the show. She always tries to make everyone happy and is often the one to suggest they play games. While usually a gentle and loving character, she transforms into a huge buffed toad named Bad Kaeloo when she is angered.


  • Adaptation Name Change: In the pilot episode, her name was "Kaelou".
  • Adorkable: She absolutely loves playing with her buddies, is quite naive, she loves flowers and ponies and she has a slightly dorky voice.
  • All Girls Like Ponies: She and Pretty got into a fight over one once.
  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: Despite the fact that she herself is a "good girl" who tries to be pure, kind and innocent, she still has a crush on Mr. Cat.
  • All Love Is Unrequited: Any time Mr. Cat tries to get with her, she won’t accept it. Other times, he’s the one rejecting her.
  • All-Loving Hero: Loves all living things, and even the non-living.
  • Amazonian Beauty: Bad Kaeloo, at least in Mr. Cat’s eyes.
  • Ambiguous Disorder: Is implied to have split personality disorder and schizophrenia.
  • Ambiguous Gender: She runs away when asked the question in Episode 54, and eludes the question each time she is asked. Word of God has confirmed that she is actually a hermaphrodite.
  • Ambiguous Gender Identity: Kaeloo has feminine mannerisms and interests, in the French dub, everyone uses the pronoun "elle" ("she") to refer to her and she never denies that she is a girl. At the same time, when Mr. Cat directly asked her if she is a boy or a girl, she ran away and she acted kind of awkward when Pretty asked her if she is a girl. To make the confusion worse, she once asked Mr. Cat to refer to her as "Monsieur" ("Mister"). When a fan asked her about this on her Facebook account, her response was basically that she is "maybe both or maybe kind of adaptable". As a result, it's hard to say if Kaeloo is really female, or if she is genderfluid (sometimes she identifies as a girl and sometimes she doesn't), a demigirl (identifies as a female, but only partially) or even a nonbinary person who just happens to be feminine and uses "she/her" pronouns out of convenience.
  • Animal Stereotype: She's a frog who is very cheerful and optimistic and smotheringly friendly, albeit somewhat weird.
  • Anti-Hero: An interesting case. Despite being a good person as well as her All-Loving Hero personality, she seems to have a dark aspect of Hulking Out. Even as her normal self, she tends to be a bit of a Bitch in Sheep's Clothing and Manipulative Bitch.
  • Arbitrary Skepticism: Doesn't believe that magic is real despite being in charge of a planet that runs on it.
  • Badass Adorable: Mostly lives up to the "Badass" part when she turns into Bad Kaeloo, but as her normal self, she knows martial arts and is very good at manipulating people.
  • Bad Impressionists: Her impression of Mr. Cat in Episode 65 involves making Finger Guns and yelling about how evil she is.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: Her relationship with Mr. Cat can sometimes move into this territory. Lampshaded by this quote in Episode 105:
    Kaeloo: When I think of all the bad thoughts he could have... (smiles as though excited) I shiver.note 
  • Berserk Button: Not a button, more of a Berserk Keyboard:
    • Do not step on a flower, even by accident.
    • Don’t use swear words.
    • Don't hurt Quack Quack.
    • Wasting food around Kaeloo is not a good idea.
    • Don't ever suggest playing war-related games.
    • Above all, never, EVER call her Priscilla.
    • As of season 3, she is also prone to angry or annoyed outbursts when she hears Mr. Cat complimenting Bad Kaeloo in any way. This is strongly implied to be a result of her feeling inferior and less well-liked than Bad Kaeloo.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Given the fact that she will wind up Hulking Out if pushed past Rage Breaking Point and is a manipulative Bitch in Sheep's Clothing.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Depending on the Writer, she may be one of these, or an actual Nice Girl.
  • Bi the Way: Being a hermaphrodite, she has expressed attraction to both boys and girls over the course of the show, though her main Love Interest seems to be Mr. Cat.
  • Black Eyes of Crazy: After undergoing Sanity Slippage in Episode 100.
  • Can't Take Criticism: Despite having several character flaws, if anyone tries to point out her flaws she gets really angry and yells at or even beats up the person.
    Kaeloo: I didn't ask for your opinion, Mr. Cat!
    Mr. Cat: You can never take criticism, can you?
  • Captain Oblivious: Kaeloo is completely oblivious to everything that happens around her. For example in one episode, she throws a party and decides to see how her guests are doing and sees that Stumpy is attacking Pretty, Quack Quack and Eugly are in an argument and Mr. Cat is trying to kill a random sheep with a bazooka for no apparent reason. Rather than realize how badly things are going, she thinks everybody is having fun.
  • Catchphrase:
    • In the original French dub, "Bonjour les amis!"
    • And there's "Not at all, not at all, not at all!", which is "Pas de tout, de tout, de tout, de tout, de tout!"
  • Cheerful Child: She's almost perpetually happy.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Kaeloo tries her hardest to get any girl who Mr. Cat could even potentially develop a crush on far away from him, even though their relationship is based on Unresolved Sexual Tension and they're not an Official Couple. Examples of girls she has done this to are Pretty, who she once dragged all the way to Egypt to keep her away from Mr. Cat, a picture of a girl in a magazine, which she burned, and her own self after Hulking Out.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: She is normally in constant bliss, is completely unaware of her surroundings and comes up with completely inaccurate judgements of situations. Mr. Cat is running a scam where he blatantly abuses Quack Quack and forces him to participate against his will? Quack Quack must be helping Mr. Cat!
  • Cloudcuckoolander's Minder: To Stumpy, even though she herself is a Cloudcuckoolander.
  • Control Freak: She often forces everyone else to comply to her standards and rules, and part of the reason she gets angry at Mr. Cat so often is his refusal to obey what she says if he doesn't want to.
  • Covert Pervert: Tries to portray herself as pure and innocent, but her excited reaction to seeing... certain parts of Mr. Cat's anatomy in "Let's Play at Reading Books"note  suggests otherwise. Also, in Episode 60, she gropes Chippendales Dancers and is then shown holding a pair of underwear in a later scene.
  • Crocodile Tears: Kaeloo often sheds crocodile tears as a way of guilt-tripping her friends, especially Mr. Cat, into doing something they otherwise wouldn't do, for her sake.
  • Crossdressing Voices: Every existing dub of the show has her voiced by a man, except for the Polish dub, where she has a female voice actor.
  • Cuddle Bug: She enjoys hugging her friends, especially Mr. Cat, and has absolutely No Sense of Personal Space either.
  • Cursed with Awesome: Kaeloo is "cursed" with the power of turning into a monster whose actions are beyond her conscious control, but the power does prove to have its advantages, such as restoring order when things get too chaotic or playing sports which require physical prowess. In addition, it's pretty much the only thing that can keep Mr. Cat and Olaf in check.
  • Cute and Psycho: A cute frog who loses her sanity semi-often.
  • Depending on the Writer: Kaeloo can either be an extremely nice person or a narcissistic, hypocritical, manipulative jerkass.
  • Dirty Kid: Despite presenting herself as pure and innocent, Kaeloo is just as prone to perverted tendencies as other characters - at the end of Let's Play at Reading Books, it's implied that she saw Mr. Cat's... ahem... "goods" and that she liked it, in another she gropes Chippendales Dancers and in yet another, she was seriously impressed by Mr. Cat's knowledge on the topic of butts (and directly told him this in a very suggestive tone).
  • Dissonant Serenity: She tends to remain happy even in dangerous situations. However, sometimes she is just being a Stepford Smiler.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: According to "Draw Like A Boss", the reason she never wears shoes is because she doesn't like them. Stumpy finds this weird.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: Her transformations involve changes typical of taking steroids.
  • Dreadful Musician: Kaeloo is horrible at music. In one episode, she tries singing while playing the harp, and Stumpy tells her to stop because both her music and her singing are awful and actually made him nauseous.
  • Dub Name Change: She is named "Žlabac" in the Serbian dub.
  • Dub Personality Change: In the English dub, she has a Hair-Trigger Temper and angrily snaps at people for minor inconveniences, but in the original version she's far more calm and patient.
  • Dude, Not Funny!: Her reaction to most of Mr. Cat's "jokes".
  • Dumb Muscle: Bad Kaeloo has large muscles but little intelligence.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: In the series pilot, Kaeloo sounded more like a boy than a girl, and Bad Kaeloo had a vocal sac.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: Priscilla, for some reason.
  • Foil: To Mr. Cat. She is the protagonist who tries not to get angry at anyone, is mostly nice to everybody but can be mean when she wants to (even without Hulking Out) and is implied to be a Stepford Smiler. He is the antagonist who has a Hair-Trigger Temper, is normally mean but can be nice and is implied to be a Stepford Snarker.
  • Forceful Kiss: On the receiving end from Stumpy in "Let’s Play Treasure Hunt" and (as Bad Kaeloo) did it to Mr. Cat in "Let's Play Peace, Man!".
  • Friend to All Living Things: She loves plants, animals and even non-living things.
  • Genki Girl: She's extremely energetic and hyperactive.
  • Giftedly Bad: Kaeloo sucks at almost everything, but considers herself to be a very talented person. For example, she draws like a kindergartener but considers herself to be a really good artist.
  • Girls Love Chocolate: According to the show's Facebook page, she eats a lot of chocolate.
  • Glurge Addict: Kaeloo loves playing cute games and likes things like romance and flowers. However, her friends tend to turn everything from cute little kid's games to straight up wars.
  • Green and Mean: Kaeloo's Superpowered Evil Side, Bad Kaeloo, is a giant green toad with a horrific mean streak who enjoys hurting people in the most violent ways imaginable.
  • Growing Muscles Sequence: Stock Footage used Once an Episode. Most of the attention is drawn to her butt.
  • Guile Hero: She manipulates people a lot. It doesn't help that the Big Bad of the show is one of her best friends and has a crush on her.
  • Hair Antennae: Her human form in Episode 176 has these.
  • Hates Being Nicknamed: "MY NAME IS NOT PRISCILLA!"
  • Hermaphrodite: As stated on Facebook.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: In Episode 77. Thankfully, Stumpy took her place by accident and of course nobody cares about Stumpy. He survives anyway.
  • Hidden Depths: One episode showed her to be a martial arts master, even in her normal form. Another one showed her to be able to speak several different languages.
  • Hollywood Tone-Deaf: Except in the Musical Episode.
  • Hulking Out: Once an Episode, she turns into the muscle-bound Bad Kaeloo, thanks to her "friends".
  • Hypocrite: Won't refrain from doing things she disapproves of other people doing, and holds other people to standards that she herself could not possibly hope to attain.
  • Hypocritical Heartwarming: Bad Kaeloo may beat the tar out of Mr. Cat every time she gets mad at him, but she still cares enough to make sure that nobody else hurts him.
  • Idiot Hero: Maybe not as dumb as Stumpy, but still is a cloudcuckoolander and the main protagonist.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: She doesn't want to be a transforming monster, because that means hurting her friends.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: Her smothering nature and extreme friendliness are a result of her badly wanting to have friends. Ironically, all this does is to slowly drive everyone except Mr. Cat away from her.
  • Inferiority Superiority Complex: Kaeloo claims to think of herself as cute-looking and talented, but the moment she sees a prettier girl, or someone who is more talented than her, she becomes jealous of them because she actually has rather low self esteem.
  • Informed Deformity: In-universe, she's apparently overweight and has cellulite.
  • The Ingenue: Depending on the Writer, she may either be one of these, or a Bitch in Sheep's Clothing who pretends to be one.
  • Instant Waking Skills: When she has to get up at 5:30 a.m., she jumps out of bed and starts exercising.
  • Interspecies Romance: She has a crush on Mr. Cat, though he is a cat and she is a frog.
  • Involuntary Shapeshifter: Some episodes state that she can't control her transformations.
  • It's All About Me: She has shown shades of this at times. One of the most prominent examples: in "Let's Play Babysitting", Kaeloo goes on a date with Mr. Cat, but ends up losing her temper and beating the crap out of him during his Love Confession. Rather than apologize to him, she makes it all about herself by talking about how her anger issues are "making her suffer so much".
  • Jerkass: As Bad Kaeloo. And, Depending on the Writer, sometimes even as "normal" Kaeloo.
  • Kawaiiko: Kaeloo is cute. Oh, and very obsessed with staying that way.
  • Large Ham: She is very loud, energetic and occasionally dramatic.
  • Like Brother and Sister: With Stumpy.
  • Living Emotional Crutch: Kaeloo is this to Mr. Cat, as his ideal version of the world is one where he and Kaeloo are the only ones who exist, her opinion of him matters to him more than anyone else's, and he once even claims that he "thinks about her day and night".
  • Loser Protagonist: The episodes which focus on Kaeloo's social life reveal that she's an annoying dork and nobody really likes her very much except Mr. Cat. She isn't particularly talented at anything either and is said to be overweight as well.
  • Mama Bear: Don’t attempt to hurt Quack Quack.
  • Manipulative Bitch: At times, she has pulled off a Wounded Gazelle Gambit to get to people. For example, in "Let’s Play Courtroom Drama", Mr. Cat points out that Bad Kaeloo is violent, aggressive and a serious threat. She tearfully packs a suitcase and decides to leave Smileyland for the safety of her friends. Mr. Cat, not wanting this to happen, confesses to having been guilty of the crime he was being tried for. Cue a malicious chuckle from Kaeloo.
  • Massive Numbered Siblings: Exaggerated. She says she has 134,667 siblings! The end of the episode suggests that she may have made it up, though it isn't clear whether or not she did.
  • Meaningful Name: "Kaeru"note  is the Japanese word for "frog".
  • Morality Pet: To Mr. Cat.
  • Motor Mouth: She does this a lot. In one episode, she even talks so fast that her face turns blue from lack of oxygen.
  • Multipurpose Tongue: She has used it to snatch things in some episodes.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Tries to make the "booty" the center of attention.
  • Ms. Imagination: Has a vivid imagination and sees even the most mundane tasks as adventures. However, nobody else on the show does this, and Mr. Cat actually asks if she's been smoking weed in one episode.
  • Ms. Red Ink: Kaeloo is pretty bad at handling money.
  • My Beloved Smother: A surrogate one to Quack Quack, and sometimes to Stumpy. She's overbearing and extremely bossy to them.
  • Narcissist: To the point where how "cute" she looks is an obsession.
  • Nature Lover: Kaeloo loves flowers, trees, insects, animals, etc.
  • Nice Girl: She's an affectionate, loving, and sweet frog.
  • The Noseless: But somehow, she can still smell things.
  • No Sense of Personal Space: Just ask Mr. Cat.
  • Not So Above It All: In Episode 64, she and her friends are protesting the McDaube restaurant for serving unhealthy food when Mr. Cat offers them toys to stop the protest. Everyone except Kaeloo stops protesting and fights for the toys. She expresses disdain until a toy lands near her foot, and after looking around to make sure nobody sees her, plays with the toy.
  • Opposites Attract: She is a friendly, cheerful Nice Girl who has a crush on the Ax-Crazy and cynical Jerkass, Mr. Cat.
  • Parental Substitute: To Quack Quack, who lost his parents before he was hatched from his egg.
  • Perpetual Smiler: It's hard to see her frown - sometimes, she even smiles when she isn't happy
  • Ping-Pong Naïveté: Depending on the episode, she may be an innocent little girl or a Covert Pervert. For example, when Mr. Cat uses Unusual Euphemisms to imply that he wants to have sex with her, she doesn't get it, but she has also flirted with him in extremely suggestive ways before and once even tried to convince him to have sex with her.
  • Pintsized Powerhouse: Can be quite strong even in her normal form, depending on Rule of Funny.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: As Bad Kaeloo.
  • The Rival: To Pretty.
  • Sanity Slippage: Several episodes end with Kaeloo being driven to insanity. This trope was used prominently in Episode 100, where she went completely insane and had to be rescued by her friends.
  • Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: The energetic girl to Mr. Cat's savvy guy.
  • Sarcasm-Blind: She usually can't detect when Mr. Cat says something sarcastic.
  • Screw the Rules, I Make Them!: Kaeloo occasionally gets called out by her friends for not playing by the rules, but since she's the one who comes up with the games, they normally get a response along the lines of "This is my game, that's the way it is, and I'll do whatever I want!"
  • Shaking the Rump: “Booty Booty Booty Dance! Booty Booty Booty Dance!”
  • She's a Man in Japan: The Italian and Hindi dubs turned her male, editing out any suggestive scenes between her and Mr. Cat.
    • There was a mistake in the English dubbing for the first ten episodes, causing her to be accidentally rewritten as male until the eleventh episode, where her being female was an important part of the episode.
  • The Smurfette Principle: The only one in the cast to be female, until Pretty and Eugly showed up. Since the bunny twins don't appear in half the episodes, the trope is still in play for most of the time.
  • Soapbox Sadie: She tends to be pretty forceful when it comes to teaching her friends lessons. Also, some of her claims are straight up incorrect and dumb, as she thinks that video games cause obsessive compulsive disorders.
  • The Southpaw: She's the only left-handed member of the main four.
  • Speech Impediment: She has a lisp, which makes her a subject of ridicule by the rest of the cast. In the French dub, she pronounces 'J' and 'G' as 'Z' and 'Ch' as 'S' (which is especially noticeable whenever she says Mr. Cat's name - which is often - as it comes out sounding more like "Monsieur Sat" than "Monsieur Chat"), in addition to having a classic lisp.
  • Split-Personality Takeover: "Let's Play Grown Ups" implies that Bad Kaeloo will take over later in Kaeloo's life, only becoming normal Kaeloo when angry.
  • Stalker with a Crush: "The Smileyland Team Responds to its Fans" reveals that whenever Mr. Cat isn't around, Kaeloo texts him on his phone. Mr. Cat even notices this and tells the viewers that Kaeloo is "crazy about him". Not that he particularly minds.
  • Stepford Smiler: Heavily implied. The falsity of her "cheerful" nature is highlighted when she pushes back signs of anger with a huge, obviously forced, painful-looking smile.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Her family members look exactly like her, and they wear accessories so the audience can tell them apart.
  • Super Gullible: Depending on the Writer, she may or not be dumb enough to fall for Mr. Cat's schemes.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: Bad Kaeloo's actions seem to be beyond her control, and Kaeloo normally winds up apologizing to whoever got beaten up.
  • Super Strength: As Bad Kaeloo, she is strong enough uproot trees, throw cars and hold off a meteor.
  • Talking to Plants: Does this a lot.
    Kaeloo: Hello, Mrs. Flower! How are you today?
    • In Episode 133, it's revealed to be one of many reasons why everyone except Mr. Cat thinks she's weird.
  • Team Mom: She takes care of her friends and loves teaching them various lessons. She also acts like a typical mom by scolding them for bad behavior and telling them to do their chores. It helps that until Season 2, she was the only female character.
  • Terrible Artist: She draws like a kindergartener but has managed to convince herself that she is talented. Mr. Cat is the only one who notices how bad her art is.
  • Translator Buddy: In early episodes where Stumpy and Mr. Cat couldn't understand what Quack Quack was saying, she would explain it to them.
  • Unresolved Sexual Tension: With Mr. Cat.
  • Uptight Loves Wild: Despite being uptight and stuffy, she has a crush on Mr. Cat, a rebellious "bad boy".
  • Vague Age: She’s a frog, not a tadpole, and "Let’s Play Doctors and Nurses" implied that she is post pubescent, but Smileyland is only for kids and she does behave a lot like a child... sometimes. To add to the confusion, another episode says that she's pre-pubescent.
  • Vocal Evolution: Her voice may rise or drop an octave depending on the episode.
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist: Easily the most idealistic of the characters.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Her human form shown in Episode 176 has green hair.

    Stumpy / Moignon 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/stumpysquirrel.png

"That’s nuts!"

An extremely unlucky squirrel who sucks at everything. He is completely nuts, and often gets erratic spasms out of nowhere (implied to be because of a disorder like Tourette's). He's immature, not very bright, and generally comes up with the craziest ideas or reasonings. He sees Kaeloo as an older sister, Quack Quack as his best friend and Mr. Cat as his role model. He is extremely addicted to video games and comic books, especially the "Mr. Coolskin" franchise. A Running Gag in the series is to mention his (apparently non-existent) sisternote . He has been an antagonist in several episodes for no apparent reason, sometimes teaming up with Mr. Cat, and gotten away with it.


  • Accidental Hero: In Episode 104, he accidentally manages to take control of Olaf’s Mecha-Mooks while trying to get away from them. He then proceeds to rescue the others, who are trapped in Olaf's lair.
  • Adaptation Name Change: In the English dub of the pilot, his name was still "Moignon" as he hadn't received a Dub Name Change, but in the English dub of the series proper his name is "Stumpy".
  • Afraid of Needles: Faints at the mere sight of one in "Let's Play Spies". It's also the way Kaeloo manages to get him to stop Playing Sick.
  • Ambiguous Disorder: He has a Tourette’s Syndrome style tic. "Let's Play at Reading Books" implies that he has OCD as well.
  • Ambiguous Gender Identity: He loves dressing up as a girl and in one of the comics, he even wished to be turned into one.
  • Ambiguous Innocence: He may not actually be as innocent as he seems to be.
  • Ambiguously Bi: He likes girls and has a girlfriend named Ursula, but he seemed to fall in love with Quack Quack in "Let's Play Hot-Cold" and enjoys dressing in drag. He also came up with the weird idea of Mr. Cat wearing a G-String in Episode 71.
  • Animal Stereotype: A hyperactive, idiotic squirrel.
  • Annoying Younger Sibling: A surrogate one to Kaeloo and Mr. Cat.
  • The Anticipator: In Episode 72, due to his increased intelligence, he is able to predict anything and everything that is going to happen.
  • Anti-Hero: While he is supposed to be on the "good" side, he does morally ambiguous things like stealing money from his mother's purse to buy comic books. He can even be a Villain Protagonist at times.
  • Attention Whore: Especially in the later seasons. In one of the episodes, he is put on trial in court. To help him not face punishment, Mr. Cat (who is his lawyer) stages an incident so Quack Quack goes to prison instead of Stumpy; instead of being happy, Stumpy complains that Quack Quack stole the attention that he was supposed to get.
  • Attractive Bent-Gender: In Episode 60, he dresses as a girl who is seen as very attractive by the bouncer at a nightclub.
  • Audience Surrogate: Any time something happens that the audience doesn't understand, Stumpy will ask Kaeloo what is happening so she can explain it to him (and by proxy the audience).
  • Ax-Crazy: Though not to Mr. Cat's extent.
  • Babysitter from Hell: In "Let's Play Babysitting", he is one to Quack Quack, who doesn't even need a babysitter in the first place. At one point, he even tries Force Feeding him pureed spinach by sticking a funnel in his mouth, putting the spinach in and then smashing it in with a baseball bat.
  • Badly Battered Babysitter: Winds up as one in "Let's Play Babysitting".
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: With Pretty. They fight a lot, but have also expressed the desire to kiss each other on separate occasions.
  • Berserk Button: Don't insult Stumpy's sister in front of him.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: At the end of Episode 105, he almost erases the rest of the main four from existence, and although he spares them, he takes over the studio making the show and decides to write all the scripts for future episodes.
  • Big Bad: Of Episode 105.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: He wants to be a villain, but isn't very good at it.
    Stumpy: I'll be the bad guy! I can be really bad! Bad to the bone!
    (Mr. Cat, the real Big Bad, shows up and kicks Stumpy out of the scene)
  • Big Brother Instinct: Don’t insult his sister. It’ll probably be too late by the time he realizes he doesn’t have a sister.
  • Big Eater: He eats quite a lot; he can generate enormous piles of trash (food packaging and drink cans), he places huge orders when eating at a restaurant, and he is perpetually hungry.
  • Book Dumb: He thinks his favorite comic book character discovered America, can't count past four and doesn't know any letters of the alphabet other than A and B.
  • Born Unlucky: Nothing ever goes right for this guy.
  • Bumbling Sidekick: To anyone he teams up with, usually Mr. Cat. His stupidity and ineptitude at everything, combined with his bad luck, make him one of the worst sidekicks in history.
  • Butt-Monkey: His friends don't respect him. He also gets lots of injuries. One example is when he gets the flu, eats a poisonous toadstool, has a concussion and breaks a leg... in the span of one episode. This actually gets deconstructed in episode 105, where it turns out that he is tired of being everyone's punching bag and just wants to live in a world where others respect him.
  • Cannot Tell a Joke: Not only are his jokes incredibly lame, he also laughs very hard while telling them and half the time he's laughing too hard to finish talking.
  • Catchphrase:
    • "That’s nuts!"/"That’s crazy!"
    • "Cooooooooooool!"
    • "I hate your guts."
  • Chainsaw Good: He is shown holding a chainsaw in the opening, and in some episodes he uses chainsaws for various purposes.
  • Chaotic Stupid: Even the other characters, who aren't exactly the sanest people either, think he is completely nuts.
  • Character Tic: "SKBLSKBLSKBL!" (said while his neck spasms erratically).
    • Whenever he is nervous or stressed, he bites on random things.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: The very embodiment of the trope.
  • Comical Overreacting: Usually.
    • This is Hilarious in Hindsight when you consider his calm reactions to anything worth actually being scared or worried about.
    Stumpy [perfectly calm]: Hey, Quack Quack’s on fire.
  • Cosmic Plaything: Episode 72 proves that he is literally a plaything for the universe.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Sometimes. There was one instance where he managed to beat up Mr. Cat, and in the Season 3 premiere, he takes over the animation studio and decides to write all the episodes himself.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Well, sort of - his eyes are the same color as his fur, red.
  • Deadpan Snarker: On occasion.
    Kaeloo (after Stumpy lets out a Sneeze of Doom): Did you catch a cold, Stumpy?
    Stumpy (deadpan): How did you guess?
  • Deal with the Devil: In Episode 89 to gain the ability to write a good song for Ursula and "Let's Play Figurines" to get voodoo powers.
  • Death Seeker: One episode had him challenge Death so that he could see what Paradise was like. He dies at the end of the episode by committing suicide, but he goes to Hell instead of Paradise since suicide is a sin.
  • Depending on the Writer: He can either be a nice but stupid kid who cares about his friends or a jerkass who tortures everyone for his own amusement.
  • Dirty Kid: He has some perverted tendencies, like accepting a job as a police assistant so he can question strippers, trying to spy on Pretty in the bath or imagining Mr. Cat in a G-string.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: In "Let’s Play Figurines", the others refuse to let him borrow their figurines to play with. Stumpy responds by making a Deal with the Devil to become a witch doctor and use voodoo magic on them. However, this could also be a result of their usual treatment of him.
  • The Ditz: Possibly the most stupid person in existence.
  • The Dog Bites Back: From Episode 105 onwards, he starts getting revenge on Kaeloo and Mr. Cat instead of just taking their abuse.
  • Dragged into Drag: Despite the fact that Kaeloo is female (sort of), and Pretty and Eugly are around in some episodes, he has to dress like a girl half the time.
  • Dreadful Musician: In one episode, he tries to raise money by playing music. He turns out to be really bad, so he decides to threaten to keep playing unless he is paid. Kaeloo reluctantly coughs up some money.
  • Drives Like Crazy: To the extent that Bad Kaeloo thought that smashing Mr. Cat into a car and letting Stumpy drive was a worse punishment than strangling and punching him. As Mr. Cat puts it:
    Mr. Cat: Did you get your license from a cereal box?
  • Dub Name Change: Moignon to Stumpy in the English dub, Mignolo in the Italian dub, Vivi in the Serbian dub, and Wierwiór in the Polish dub.
  • Dumb Is Good: Zigzagged; He’s an Anti-Hero most of the time, but sometimes he’s one of the good guys.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: The pilot actually had him win the game, and in the first episode of Season 1 he said he didn’t want to be on the same team as Mr. Cat while later episodes have him idolize him.
  • Extreme Omnivore: Who in their right mind would try to eat things like dumpster trash or a table?
  • Failure Is the Only Option: He always loses, except in the series pilot and a few other episodes. In "What if We Played at Riding Ponies?" he wins due to Mr. Cat’s interference, but still "loses" because he bet all his money on Quack Quack winning.
  • Fingerless Gloves: Dark purple ones, that look just like Mr. Cat'snote .
  • For the Evulz: Most of the show's antagonists have a reason for doing the things they do; Olaf wants to make the world more livable for himself and his "wife", Mr. Cat was mostly neglected and abused as a child, Pretty has a reputation as an Alpha Bitch and does mean things to people because she's a Slave to PR, but Stumpy... just finds being a dick funny.
  • Freudian Excuse: His rude and bratty attitude stems from the constant abuse Kaeloo and Mr. Cat have put him through over the past several years.
  • Gasshole: Burps fairly often, and has even weaponized one of his farts.
  • Genius Ditz: He’s an amazing artist but otherwise a complete idiot.
  • Hates Baths: His reaction to being told to take a bath is a Big "NO!".
  • Heroes Want Redheads: In one episode, he even rejected a potential girlfriend because he found out she dyed her hair and wasn't an actual redhead. When he winds up with his girlfriend Ursula, she's The Unseen, so the viewers can never tell if she's a redhead or not (through it's implied that she is actually a blonde rather than a redhead).
  • Heroic Bastard: Well, anti-heroic bastard, but either way, Episode 60 reveals that his parents aren't married.
  • Hollywood Tone-Deaf: He really can't carry a tune.
  • Hypocrite: In the show's "Draw Like a Boss" webisodes, he calls the viewers a bunch of "losers" because they don't know how to draw.
  • I Just Want to Be You: One episode has him state that he has always dreamed of being Mr. Cat. Another episode made him try to get revenge on Mr. Cat for stealing his stuff, only to take over his role as villain after knocking him out.
  • Improbable Weapon User: He uses bananas as weapons (but has also used guns in a few episodes).
  • Inappropriate Role Model: His role model is Mr. Cat, unfortunately.
  • Informed Deformity: In-universe, he's apparently hideous.
  • Interspecies Romance: He is a squirrel and he is dating Ursula, who is according to Episode 143, a cat.
  • Iron Butt Monkey: He somehow survived being left on an exploding planet.
  • Ironic Fear: He is afraid of heights despite being a squirrel.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite being a spoiled, annoying jerk at times, he does love his friends and he usually doesn't reach Mr. Cat's levels (not that that's a huge accomplishment).
  • Just One More Level: He suffers from a very serious video game addiction.
  • Karma Houdini: Whenever Stumpy and Mr. Cat do something together, Mr. Cat is usually punished for it while Stumpy gets away. However it's always counterbalanced by having the squirrel be the series' target practice for pain.
  • The Klutz: Frequently trips over nothing.
  • Lethal Chef: He tried cooking a stew that tasted like shoes - by stomping his feet in the cooking pot.
  • Lethally Stupid: He is extremely dangerous when armed.
  • Like Brother and Sister: With Kaeloo. In one episode she even calls him her little brother.
  • Literal-Minded: In "Let's Play Prison-Ball", he acts like the "prison"note  is a real prison, yells things like "Society's the one to blame, I'm innocent!" and tries to dig his way out with a jackhammer.
  • Loads and Loads of Roles: In "Let’s Play Cowboys and Indians", he is the sheriff, the Indian, the bartender, the old drunk guy in the bar, and Britney Spears.
  • Mad Libs Catch Phrase: "Are you [adjective] or what?"
  • The Millstone: If it isn't Mr. Cat himself or Kaeloo who foils his plans, it's usually Stumpy who does.
  • The Necromancer: Caused a zombie apocalypse in "Let’s Play Scaredy Cat" and has made more than one Deal with the Devil.
  • Nervous Wreck: He is often quite jittery.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: He is fascinated by dangerous things, like explosions, weapons and monsters. His reaction to seeing images where Quack Quack is graphically tortured is an excited sounding "Ooh, gory!"
  • Nightmare Fuel Station Attendant: He is one of these as a result of a constant diet of violent horror movies, comic books and video games.
  • Not Afraid to Die: He actually attempts to challenge Death in one episode, but that was mainly because he wanted to know what the afterlife was like.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: He is actually quite stupid, but Episode 138 suggests that he may not be as stupid as he acts.
  • The One Who Wears Shoes: He wears a pair of green sneakers, and is the only member of the main four to wear footwear of any type.
  • Outnumbered Sibling: Taken Up to Eleven. He's the only boy in a family of 37 kids.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: His "Stumpy’s sister" disguise is basically himself in a wig. He uses it to fool the bouncer at a girls-only nightclub, despite the bouncer having seen him literally two seconds ago.
  • Parental Neglect: His parents don't pay much attention to him, probably because of their large family.
  • Pop-Cultured Badass: His knowledge of pop culture has often proven useful to the cast.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: He has red eyes and he can be surprisingly dangerous at times.
  • Sarcasm-Blind: He genuinely believes most sarcastic statements he hears.
  • Screams Like a Little Girl: More obvious in the French dub.
  • Screwy Squirrel: Bonus points for actually being a squirrel.
  • Shipper on Deck: He ships Kaeloo and Mr. Cat very, very hard. The episode "Let's Play Baby-Sitting" even had him set them up on a date.
    • Shipper with an Agenda: The purpose of said date was to get them to have kids so he could babysit and make money.
  • Skewed Priorities:
    • When the main four go camping in "Let's Play Treasure Hunt", he unpacks all the necessary supplies before they leave because there wasn't enough space for all his Mr. Coolskin comic books.
    • When the planet is destroyed in Episode 105, he rejoices because he won't have to go to school anymore. And then he panics... because there's no phone signal and he can't call his girlfriend.
  • Smart Ball: In Episode 81, the gang has to remove a magical yogurt from a place without triggering any traps. Stumpy, having seen this in a movie, carefully replaces it with an acorn. Ultimately subverted when he then proceeds to pick up said acorn and eats it.
  • Spoiled Brat: While he's nowhere near as bad as Pretty, he still is bratty and spoiled.
  • Straw Loser: Given the fact that Kaeloo has people like Mr. Cat and Quack Quack around, she would look like a complete loser if not for Stumpy.
  • Suddenly SHOUTING!: He does this so often it's practically a Character Tic.
  • Super Gullible: He'll believe anything you tell him, no matter how ridiculous it is.
  • Too Dumb to Live: He has shot himself with a bazooka, eaten a poisonous toadstool and bitten an electric wire on purpose (and actually died each time). That was just a few examples.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: He becomes meaner in the later episodes, probably because everyone's abuse got to him.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Nuts. He is a squirrel, after all. He also loves paninis in the French dub, or hot dogs in the English dub.
  • Ugly Guy, Hot Wife: While they aren't married, he seems to have this dynamic with his girlfriend Ursula - he is a funny-looking squirrel who is apparently quite ugly in universe, while Ursula, despite not being shown on-screen, gets quite the positive attention from Mr. Cat and Kaeloo.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: In Episode 128. The plot of the episode revolves around Stumpy using various schemes to trick people into giving him money to buy a video game. Each time he tries something on Kaeloo, she immediately sees through the trick, but gives him money anyway and compliments his creativity in coming up with the scheme. In order to get more sympathy from others and therefore more money, Stumpy goes on TV and narrates a completely false story about his life which portrays Kaeloo as a selfish and bossy jerkass.
  • Unmanly Secret: He admits under the effects of Truth Serum that he secretly enjoys wearing makeup, high heels and flowery dresses because it "makes him feel pretty".
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: In "Let's Play the Quest for the Wholly Gruel".
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: After being shot with Truth Serum, he admits that he likes dressing in drag.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Has hit Pretty several times.
  • Villain Protagonist: In "Let's Play Figurines" and Episode 102. And especially in Episode 105.
  • Vocal Evolution: In the English dub, his voice was deeper and a bit more mature in a first few episodes before it became more similar to his much more high-pitched French voice (that said, it did temporarily become deeper again between Let's Play Ecologists and Let's Play Danger Island Survivor).
  • Your Cheating Heart: Has flirted with other girls on occasions despite dating Ursula. Not that any of them liked him.

    Quack Quack / Coin Coin 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/duck_4.jpg

"Quack!"

Super-talented duck covered in stitches and obsessed with yogurt. The only word he ever says is "quack", though everyone seems to understand what he means by that... or sometimes they don't. The stitches all over his body are explained by the fact that he is actually indestructible, and thus able to survive any injury. He is Stumpy's best friend, Eugly's boyfriend and Mr. Cat's favorite punching bag.


  • Academic Athlete: He's really good at science, can solve complex math sums in seconds inside his head and can win almost any sport.
  • The Ace: He can do anything with a great amount of talent and skill.
  • Acquired Situational Narcissism: In "Let's Play Tennis", since he's better than everyone else at tennis.
  • Afraid of Doctors: As a result of being experimented on by scientists.
  • All Men Are Perverts: As evidenced by "Let’s Play at Reading Books", where he spends his time in the library reading dirty magazines.
  • Animal Stereotype: Averted. He's a talented genius and a nice guy.
  • Appendage Assimilation: In "Let's Play Peace, Man!" when his head is blown off, he just takes another one out of a suitcase and puts it on.
  • Badass Adorable: Despite being a duckling and most likely the youngest member of the main cast, he is already a strong, athletic ace who, among other things, can sword fight and is indestructible.
  • Berserk Button: Come between him and yogurt, or between him and Eugly, and you will pay.
  • Big Eater: Eats yogurt by the crate. Exploited by Stumpy in "Let's Play Super-Powers" when he forces him to eat 712 pots of yogurt to win a Mr. Coolskin card as part of a competition.
  • Birds of a Feather: He and Eugly are both incapable of speech, kind to everyone, and mistreated horribly by everyone else.

  • Body Sled: Kaeloo uses him as a sled in Episode 105.
  • Broken Ace: He is smart and good at absolutely everything, but he is also a yogurt addict, his parents died before he was even hatched and he was experimented on by scientists. Also, he is constantly tortured by one of his friends.
  • The Chew Toy: Being Mr. Cat's main torture victim will do that to you.
  • Child Prodigy: The most intelligent (at least when it comes to stuff like math and science) and implied to be the youngest character on the show.
  • Compelling Voice: In Episode 97, after accidentally swallowing a spoon. Mr. Cat exploits this to get whatever he wants from Kaeloo and Stumpy. When Quack Quack refuses to help him any longer, Mr. Cat beats him up. Unfortunately for Mr. Cat, the abuse causes the spoon to come flying out, leaving him defenseless against Kaeloo.
  • Demonic Possession: He was on the receiving end of it in "Let’s Play Paranormal Stuff". Mr. Cat and Stumpy wind up having to exorcise him a la Ghostbusters. It happens again in Episode 145, and once again his friends exorcise him.
  • Dirty Kid: He can sometimes be a pervert, like in "Let's Play at Reading Books" when he was looking at a book with pictures of skimpily dressed girls.
  • Ditzy Genius: When it comes to academics, he's absolutely brilliant, but he couldn't even tell that a picture of himself with Stumpy's head taped onto it wasn't a picture of Stumpy.
  • Does Not Like Spam: Hates spinach and "orgyurt" (a kind of organic yogurt).
  • Dub Name Change: Coin Coin to Quack Quack in the English dub, Qua Qua in the Italian version, and Kwa Kwa in the Polish dub.
  • Equippable Ally: The others sometimes use him as a weapon to fire various objects, ranging from yogurt to missiles.
  • Escaped from the Lab: Quack Quack's backstory is that when he was an egg, his parents were killed by a hunter, and when he hatched, the young duckling was taken to a laboratory where he was subjected to strange scientific experiments. Eventually, he escaped from the lab and went to live with the rest of the cast. It is never revealed how exactly he escaped.
  • Eye Beams: Has the power to shoot both light beams and laser beams from his eyes.
  • Half-Dressed Cartoon Animal: Wears a pair of underwear.
  • Hilariously Abusive Childhood: Most of it, anyway.
  • Immortal Life Is Cheap: Mr. Cat usually greets him by blasting his head off, and spends the rest of the episode repeatedly killing him.
  • Innocent Blue Eyes: He is the only character with blue eyes, Pretty's being green, Eugly's being unseen and the others' being red. He is also the most innocent, kindest and youngest character in the entire show.
  • Innocent Prodigy: Quack Quack is a genius who can solve complex math problems inside his head in mere seconds and is a brilliant scientist, but he otherwise acts like the little kid he is - he's sensitive, naive and enjoys video games, comic books and children's games.
  • Interspecies Romance: His girlfriend is a rabbit and he is a duck.
  • Iron Butt Monkey: He can survive just about anything.
  • Intelligible Unintelligible: Can only say his name, yet everyone understands him anyway.
  • Karma Houdini:
    • "Let’s Play at Reading Books", he gets away with doing the exact same thing as Mr. Cat while Mr. Cat gets punished.
    • At the end of Episode 134, Stumpy punishes Kaeloo and Mr. Cat for tricking him, but Quack Quack, who was also in on the plan, gets away scot-free.
  • Literally Loving Thy Neighbor: Eugly, his girlfriend, also happens to be his neighbor.
  • A Lizard Named "Liz": A duck named Quack Quack.
  • Love at First Sight: Fell in love with Eugly the first time he saw her; she also fell in love with him the first time she saw him.
  • Made of Indestructium: Quack Quack is indestructible. No matter what you do to him, he'll always come back to life in three seconds.
  • Meaningful Name: It's the only thing he can say.
  • Mundane Utility: He uses his powers to be a soda machine, provide disco lights and do several other mundane things. Lampshaded in Episode 103 when Olaf kidnaps him to use his powers to power a snow machine to save Olga from melting, which he finds to be a much better use for those powers.
  • Nice Guy: One of the nicest characters on the show, and the only male character to not be a jerk.
  • Nigh Invulnerable: He can be hurt, but he can't actually die even if blasted with a bazooka, decapitated or set on fire. However, one episode said that even though he's indestructible, he isn't immortal and will die one day, probably of natural consequences.
  • Negate Your Own Sacrifice: He frequently sacrifices himself for his friends, but he's indestructible.
  • No Respect Guy: He always helps his friends whenever they need it, but they don't return the favor; Kaeloo treats him like her personal slave, Stumpy exploits his talents for his own benefit, and Mr. Cat uses him as a punching bag.
  • Not So Stoic: He has shown emotion at times. This is VERY rare, though, as in one episode he was actually perfectly stoic when Kaeloo, his Parental Substitute was going to die.
  • Official Couple: With Eugly, following the events of Episode 54.
  • Ostrich Head Hiding: Despite being a duck, this is his hide-and-seek technique. It works very well on Kaeloo, Stumpy, Alternate Universe!Stumpy and Alternate Universe!Quack Quack.
  • Parody Sue: He's "smart", a good athlete, very talented at everything and is also indestructible. As a result, he wins everything, and all his successes are Played for Laughs as well as being one of the reasons Mr. Cat hates him so much.
  • Pay Evil unto Evil: Usually averted; in most cases, he does nothing to get revenge on Mr. Cat (or anyone else) for the way they treat him.
  • Pintsized Powerhouse: Can effortlessly beat up Mr. Cat and Stumpy when he wants to.
  • Pokémon Speak: He can only say his name, "Quack".
  • Repetitive Name
  • Silent Snarker: He is often shown rolling his eyes or making facial expressions that more or less mean "Really?" whenever someone does something stupid.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: He only appears to be attracted to Eugly.
  • Skewed Priorities: He tends to value yogurt above everything else in the world, including his own girlfriend and friends; one of the comic book stories even has him electrocute Stumpy to keep the fridge running during a power outage so his yogurts won't get ruined!
  • Speech-Impaired Animal: He can only say "Quack", even through the rest of the cast (except for his girlfriend, Eugly) can speak normally.
  • The Stoic: Quack Quack rarely changes expression.
  • Tiny Guy, Huge Girl: Eugly is nearly twice his size.
  • Too Dumb to Live: If Quack Quack wasn't indestructible, he would have certainly died by now. For example, in one episode, Kaeloo, Stumpy and Quack Quack are playing "Red Light, Green Light" with the Ax-Crazy Villain Protagonist Mr. Cat. When Mr. Cat turns around, he fires a missile from a bazooka at the others. Kaeloo and Stumpy run away to escape. Quack Quack, on the other hand, stands in the path of the missile because the rules of the game say that he shouldn't move until Mr. Cat turns around again.
  • Toothy Bird: When zombified. Averted when he is normal.
  • They Killed Kenny Again: He's died quite a few times.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Yogurt, although it’s more of a G-Rated Drug which he undergoes withdrawal symptoms without.
  • Trauma Button: If anyone mentions dead parents in any way, shape, or form, Quack Quack, whose parents were brutally murdered, will go into Troubled Fetal Position and rock back and forth.
  • Troubled Fetal Position: He curls up into fetal position and rocks back and forth while repeatedly quacking if anyone mentions anything involving dead parents.

  • Twitchy Eye: While imagining what Kaeloo and Mr. Cat's baby would look like.
  • The Unintelligible: Zigzagged. Sometimes everybody understands him, and sometimes they don't.
  • Who's Laughing Now?: In "Let's Play Figurines", he manages to turn Mr. Cat into his personal slave.
  • Wise Beyond Their Years: He is the smartest character on the show, but he is also implied to be the youngest.
  • The Woobie: Pretty much his whole life has been awful: never getting to know his parents, being experimented on by scientists, and living with Mr. Cat and Stumpy.
  • Younger Than They Look: Implied to be the youngest of the cast, yet he looks about the same age as the others.

    Mr. Cat / Monsieur Chat 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mr_cat_with_bazooka_kaeloo_32391446_1280_704.jpg

The series' Villain Protagonist, an Ax-Crazy, perverted, selfish, egoistic, alcoholic, hypocritical sadomasochist who has displayed quite a few signs of Troubling Unchildlike Behavior. His favourite hobby is to harm and injure Quack Quack in every way possible, and he owns an arsenal of weapons which he uses for the purpose. He's the only actual smart character on the show, the other "smart" characters being Ditzy Geniuses. He can be nice to the rest of the main cast at times, and as the series goes on he becomes much nicer. It's implied he had a really difficult past, and he in fact met the others after running away from home to escape his abusive older brothers. Despite, or maybe because of Kaeloo's transformations, he seems to have formed a crush on her, which is (sometimes) implied to be mutual. Pretty also has a crush on Mr. Cat, but the feeling is far from mutual.


  • Academic Athlete: Quite intelligent (academics and otherwise), and is such a good athlete he can defy the laws of physics.
  • Accessory-Wearing Cartoon Animal: All he wears is a pair of dark purple Fingerless Gloves.
  • The Ace: While not to the same extent as Quack Quack, he is good at almost everything, in addition to being good-looking, intelligent and strong. It’s even implied that if he hadn't cheated in the Zerolympics, he could have actually beat Quack Quack at some of the games.
  • Acting Your Intellectual Age: Has the intelligence of an adult, and acts like one too despite being a kid who's less than 13 years old.
  • Addiction Displacement: He says he used to be addicted to carrots before he switched to hurting Quack Quack as a new addiction, since the latter option damages Quack Quack's health instead of his own.
  • A God Am I: In Episode 23, Kaeloo screams "Good God!" and Mr. Cat assumes that she's referring to him.
  • The Alcoholic: It's a Running Gag to have him have a hangover, and Episode 60note  he is actually shown getting drunk. In some instances, he gets so drunk that he ends up passing out. Even though he's several years underage.
  • All Love Is Unrequited: He utterly detests Pretty.
  • All Men Are Perverts: He's tried to have sex with Kaeloo several times, and he likes Playboy-esque magazines.
  • Amazon Chaser: He is a lot more attracted to Kaeloo when she is transformed as Bad Kaeloo. Emphasized by this quote in Let's Play the Very Special Episode:
    Mr. Cat: A muscular butt goes well with your tint!
  • Ambiguously Bi: Due to Kaeloo's Ambiguous Gender, it's not clear if he only likes girls or if he's bisexual. It doesn't help that he seems to be more attracted to Bad Kaeloo, who is noticably more masculine than normal Kaeloo. When asked about his sexual orientation, the creators have merely referred to it as "ambiguous". Averted in the pilot, where he openly expresses his attraction to males.
  • Animal Stereotype: A snarky, mean cat.
  • Anime Hair: His human form in Episode 176.
  • Anti-Hero: Both this and an Anti-Villain. Sure, he loves his friends and he is willing to protect them, but don't think for a second he is any less of a Jerkass during those moments (well, he can be nice sometimes, but those moments are rare). He also usually has some selfish motive for helping them.
  • Anti-Villain: An interesting case, when he at least tries to be a hero.
    Mr. Cat: I said I wanted to be the hero, not the good guy.
  • Attention Whore: He's willing to be beaten up by Bad Kaeloo, who has Super Strength, for the sake of being on TV.
  • Ax-Crazy: You really can’t get any closer to this trope than this guy. In some episodes he even has an actual ax.
  • Badass Adorable: While a much more malicious and creepy example than the most, Mr. Cat qualifies - he is athletic and owns all sorts of weapons which he can use flawlessly during combat, to the point he was able to stop a Zombie Apocalypse all by himself while showing off some impressive, almost physics-breaking moves. But the most impressive part is probably the fact that he is a cute little kitten under the age of 13.
  • Badass Baritone: A combination of this and Evil Sounds Deep. Mr. Cat has a very deep, masculine voice, especially for his age. As for the "badass" part, he owns weapons, is very strong and athletic, multi-talented and highly intelligent.
  • Badass in Charge: Whenever things go south for the main four, Mr. Cat takes charge of the situation and leads the group through it.
  • Badass Normal: He has no superpowers, but is still one of the most intelligent, agile, and capable characters on the show.
  • Bad People Abuse Animals: Mr. Cat, an anthropomorphic cat, regularly abuses non-anthropomorphic sheep for Black Comedy Animal Cruelty in various ways such as kicking them, lighting them on fire and shooting them. The sheep are Made of Iron so they survive all of it.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: His relationship with Kaeloo sometimes goes into this territory.
  • Berserk Button:
    • He Hates Being Touched, and threatened to kill his friends (literally, he had a knife held to Kaeloo's throat and a bazooka pointed at Stumpy's face) if they did.
    • He also reacts very negatively being called a "kitty".
    • Mr. Cat does not take kindly to people trying to hurt Kaeloo.
  • Best Friend: Out of all of Kaeloo's friends, he is the one who is closest to her.
  • Be the Ball: Winds up doing this a lot thanks to Bad Kaeloo.
  • Big Bad: He's the main villain of the series despite being a friend of the main cast.
  • Big Brother Bully: Suffered heavily from two of these before running away from home.
  • Bi the Way: In the series pilot, he is openly bisexual. In the series proper, however, he is Ambiguously Bi.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: He speaks to the audience fairly often and breaks the fourth wall more than any other character does.
  • Broken Ace: He is almost just as good at everything as Quack Quack, but he comes from a Dysfunctional Family and he suffers from severe psychological and self-esteem issues.
  • Brutal Honesty: When Mr. Cat actually bothers to be honest, it tends to be very negative. For example, when he gets invited to a dinner party by Kaeloo, the first thing he does is criticize the dining room's decor. He also tends to tell Stumpy to his face that he's ugly, stupid and/or a loser.
  • The Brute: He isn't big or dumb, but he has an impressive arsenal of weapons, is extremely Ax-Crazy and short tempered and long story short, you don't want to mess with him.
  • The Bully: He is prone to insulting others, taking their stuff and embarrassing them like a typical schoolyard bully.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: Mr. Cat takes being called "evil, sadistic, cruel, egoistic and psychopathic" as a compliment.
  • Catchphrase: Whenever someone says something that he finds shocking or ridiculous, he emphatically asks "What do you mean, [insert information here]?!"
    • In the French dub, he also has "C'est quoi ce délire?!" (Can be translated to "What is this nonsense?" or "What the hell?")
  • Cats Are Mean: Although in his case, that's an understatement.
  • Cats Are Snarkers: However, he is implied to be a Stepford Snarker.
  • Cats Are Superior: He's the only actual intelligent person on the show (the other "intelligent" characters being Ditzy Geniuses).
  • Cats Hate Water: Averted; he seems to find the idea of taking a bath relaxing.
  • Cats Have Nine Lives: He has said that this is true in several episodes.
  • Cat Stereotype: Inverted. Orange cats are supposed to be heroic and humble, and the incorrigibly pretentious, egoistic and narcissistic Mr. Cat is the Villain Protagonist of the show.
  • Chainsaw Good: One weapon he uses a lot is the chainsaw.
  • Character Development: As the show progresses, he tends to show more signs of actually caring about his friends' wellbeing and is slightly less mean.
  • Characterization Marches On: The second season finale had him attempt to save Quack Quack from Olaf and state that he does trust Stumpy in times of danger. In Episode 105, he actually shows signs of guilt for the way he and the others treated Stumpy in earlier episodes, and shows that he genuinely cares for the rest of the main four.
  • Chick Magnet: A downplayed example. He is supposedly very good looking and out of the three female characters on the show, two of them have major crushes on him (one is reciprocated, the other is unrequited).
  • Child Prodigy: He is less than 13 and happens to be the smartest character in the show.
  • Combat Sadomasochist: Some episodes imply that he enjoys the violence Bad Kaeloo inflicts on him almost as much as the violence he uses on others.
  • Comedic Sociopathy: He isn't the only character who has this, but he is the one who exhibits this the most.
  • Con Man: In season 3, he starts becoming one of these, scamming people with fake Cinderella stories and fake advertisements for products that don't actually work.
  • Consummate Liar: Though the others' stupidity may be the reason they believe his lies more than anything else.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: Don't ever let him think that you're trying to "steal" Kaeloo from him, even though she's not actually his girlfriend. For reference, in "Let's Play Danger Island Survivor", when Kaeloo says Quack Quack is her "best friend", Mr. Cat first drives a wedge between Kaeloo and Quack Quack, then makes Quack Quack suffer the pain of falling into a precipice filled with hungry gators. In another episode, when the gang are playing Sleeping Beauty with Kaeloo as the princess and Stumpy as the prince, Mr. Cat shoots Stumpy with a bazooka to stop him from getting to Kaeloo since he says Sleeping Beauty is "his".
  • Creepy Child: One of the most notable examples is in "Let's Play Magicians" when he dances around singing "la, la, la" while sticking knives into Quack Quack's body.
  • Cute Little Fangs: Since he's a cat. And they go well with his personality.
  • The Cynic: Easily the most cynical of the characters. He truly believes that the world is a bad place and always tries to see the bad side of everyone and everything.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: We’ve only been given a few small glimpses of it, but it seems like he had a really, really bad childhood.
  • Deadpan Snarker: If there’s snarking to be done, it's usually Mr. Cat doing it.
  • Defrosting Ice King: From Season 2 onwards, he starts acting nicer to his friends, and in Season 3 he's actually very nice to Kaeloo half the time.
  • Disney Death: "Let's Play Goodbye Mr. Cat" has him disappear, only for it to be revealed that he’s alive, just invisible.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: People who annoy him are usually faced with some sort of dangerous weapon.
  • Dirty Kid: Less than 13 and pervy. He likes looking at pictures of girls in skimpy clothes and has attempted to sleep with Kaeloo on multiple occasions.
  • Domestic Abuse: He was constantly yelled at by his mom and beaten by his brothers.
  • The Drag-Along: Usually reluctant to join the rest of the cast in doing anything. This results in them having to beg him, bribe him or force him to join in.
  • Dub Name Change: Monsieur Chat to Mr. Cat in the English dub, Signor Gatto in the Italian dub, Čak in the Serbian dub, and Pan Kot in the Polish dub.
  • Dub Personality Change: The original (French) dub of the show has Mr. Cat be a super genius who is right about everything; the English dub makes him seem slightly dumber, for some reason.
  • Dysfunctional Family: One of the main reasons for his Freudian Excuse was coming from a very abusive family.
    Mr. Cat: Papa drank, Mama screamed, my brothers beat me up...
  • Early Installment Weirdness:
    • In the series pilot, it's suggested that he thinks that Kaeloo, Stumpy and Quack Quack are annoying because they're "study kids". In the series proper, Mr. Cat himself is a highly intelligent Child Prodigy who is well-versed in science, math, and psychology and can build and repair cool gadgets, and is much more intelligent than the others.
    • In "Let's Play Doctors and Nurses", he is the perfect example of Evil Is Hammy, but in later episodes he's the least hammy character on the show and sometimes the Only Sane Man.
  • Enfant Terrible: He's not even a teenager yet and he's already a manipulative, dishonest psychopath.
  • Enraged by Idiocy: Mr. Cat has a Hair-Trigger Temper because he's Surrounded by Idiots but finds stupid people very annoying. To the extent that he's actually tried to kill his friends because they anger him with their stupidity.
  • Escape Artist: In one episode, he is tied to a chair inside a closed room. Stumpy leaves the room and closes the door. By the time Stumpy has said a few words, Mr. Cat has somehow untied himself, escaped the room and stolen the car.
  • Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: He demands that everybody respects the cat flap because it was his mother's, and in "Let's Play Spies" is shown to truly miss her.
    • Subverted though as one episode had him claim that he never liked her.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Mr. Cat may be an evil, psychopathic jerk, but he still loves the rest of the main four like family.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: He’s just as ashamed of his actions as Stumpy and Quack Quack in Episode 69 when he realized he’d possibly let down several fans, and made Kaeloo cry. Also, when reading "Sleeping Beauty", he points out how disgusting it is to take advantage of an unconscious person and violate their consent.
  • Evil Brit: The Miam Animation dub portrays him with a slightly Americanized British accent.
  • Evil Genius: Token Evil Teammate of the main cast and the only actual smart character... most of the time. He also has many weapons, some of which are implied to be made by him and he loves scientific experiments.
  • Evil Has a Bad Sense of Humor: He takes delight in tormenting other people, even his own best friends, in various ways, ranging from burning Stumpy's comic book collectionnote  to trying to kill people with chainsaws.
  • Evil Is Burning Hot: Mr. Cat is often associated with fire, and the intro Kaeloo made for season 3's premiere episode even depicts him as some type of flaming entity with fire-based powers.
  • Evil Is Hammy: Averted, except in "Let's Play Doctors and Nurses"note  where he was extremely hammy, likely due to Early Installment Weirdness.
  • Evil Is Petty: In addition to doing regular villain-y things, Mr. Cat also stoops to low levels to do petty things just for the sake of it, such as traumatizing Quack Quack and scamming Stumpy because he wanted to steal from Stumpy the grand sum of... four cents.
  • Evil Laugh: In the theme song, and almost Once an Episode.
  • Evil Redhead: Aside from having orange fur, his human version in Episode 176 is shown to have red hair.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: He has a much deeper voice than the rest of the cast and sounds like an adult despite being less than 13 years old.
  • Expressive Ears: During an Oh, Crap! moment, both of his ears move downwards.
  • Fangs Are Evil: He's the main antagonist and since he's a cat, he has a pair of fangs.
  • Fantastic Racism: He hates both ducks and rabbits with a burning passion. In "Let's Play Peace, Man", he actually says that cats are a superior race to ducks, and repeatedly tries to convince people that cats are the most superior species in Episode 108 and succeeds with everyone except Kaeloo.
  • Fiery Redhead: His human form in Episode 176 has red hair.
  • Fingerless Gloves: A pair of dark purple ones.
  • Flat-Earth Atheist: Doesn't believe in magic, the supernatural, the paranormal or the afterlife despite living on a planet that runs on magic and having encountered demons, aliens and ghosts.
  • Foil: To Kaeloo (see above).
  • Forceful Kiss: Was on the receiving end in "Let’s Play Peace, Man".
  • Freudian Excuse: He had to run away from home as a result of living with an extremely Dysfunctional Family, and "Let's Play Bye Bye, Yogurt" implied heavily that one or more people who were very close to him died.
    Mr. Cat: As a kitten, I was tied up in a sack and thrown into a rushing river...
  • Furry Reminder: Several episodes will point out that he is a cat, and he often does cat-like things like meowing and purring, licking his fur and playing with a ball.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: He is stated to have several "inventions" lying around, and was even able to build a cloning machine in "Let’s Play Detectives". He was also the one who fixed the broken time machine in Episode 76.
  • The Gambling Addict: He bets on horse races, poker games and other such things fairly often and, depending on the episode, either makes or loses large amounts of money that way. In some cases, he also makes bets which get out of hand and culminate in him being harmed in some way.
  • Genius Bruiser: He owns many weapons and several episodes (for example, "Let's Play Scaredy Cat") show that he is a skilled fighter. He is also a Gadgeteer Genius who can build gadgets like cloning machines and robots and fixed a broken time machine once.
  • Greed: As shown in Episode 128, he's even willing to traumatize Quack Quack for the sake of cheating Stumpy out of the measly sum of four cents.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: As a result of being Enraged by Idiocy and Surrounded by Idiots at the same time.
  • Hates Being Touched: He once threatened to literally kill Stumpy and Kaeloo with a bazooka and a knife respectively if they dared to touch him. Though the climax of Episode 105 suggests that this may be a part of his Hidden Heart of Gold-hiding facade.
  • Heavy Sleeper: Justified since he's a cat.
  • Hidden Depths:
  • Hidden Heart of Gold: He has straight out confessed to Kaeloo that he has a sensitive, vulnerable side which he hides by being mean.
  • Hypocritical Heartwarming: While he acts like a Jerkass to Kaeloo, Stumpy and Quack Quack, he does care about them and will try to protect them if something or someone else tries to harm them.
    Mr. Cat: (sees Quack Quack hurt) What's the big idea? Who whacked duck-face instead of me?!
  • Inferiority Superiority Complex: His narcissism and egoism actually stem from deep-seated self-esteem issues.
  • Infernal Background: When he gets really angry, the background behind him sometimes bursts into flames.
  • Informed Attractiveness: He’s implied to be very good-looking In-Universe... at least, in some episodes.
  • Insane Troll Logic: When attempting to justify some inexcusable action of his. For example, in the first episode, during a game of prison-ball, Mr. Cat sets up a basketball hoop to catch the ball in. Kaeloo says that it's cheating, and Mr. Cat explains why it isn't: The game is called "prison-ball", and "all prisoners play basketball".
  • Insufferable Genius: He is genuinely intelligent and he knows it far too well, which adds to his already big ego.
  • Interspecies Romance: Has a massive crush on Kaeloo, who is a frog.
  • In Vino Veritas: When he gets drunk, he tends to show his Hidden Heart of Gold and become much nicer.
  • Involuntary Shapeshifter: Usually thanks to Bad Kaeloo beating the stuffing out of him.
  • It's All About Me:
  • Jerkass: A self-absorbed liar who is sadistic, fine with cheating, and has a bad attitude.
  • Jerkass to One: While he is rude and cruel to everyone, he mostly leaves Kaeloo and Stumpy alone unless they really annoy him. His really Ax-Crazy, sadistic side mostly comes out around Quack Quack and, as of Season 2, Pretty.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: On VERY rare occasions, he can be this. It mostly shows during his interactions with Kaeloo.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: Also this trope.
  • Karma Houdini:
    • In Episode 53, he receives no punishment whatsoever for turning Olaf against Kaeloo, which almost endangers her, just for some money.
    • In Episode 64, he gets away with serving trash as food in a restaurant and forcing Stumpy to work for him.
  • Laughably Evil: He is an Ax-Crazy and sadistic psychopath who loves torturing Quack Quack, but he is also the source of quite a few funny moments, mostly thanks to his snarkiness, proneness to Blatant Lies and completely off the wall justifications for the terrible things he does. In the second episode, he was also the personification of the Evil Is Hammy trope, through that was mostly thanks to Early Installment Weirdness.
  • The Leader: When the main four gets in trouble, they turn to him to solve their problems.
  • Little Mister Snarker: He is a young, underage boy who is incredibly sarcastic.
  • Living Emotional Crutch: While all of Kaeloo's friends are a Living Emotional Crutch to her, Mr. Cat seems to be especially important to her.
  • Loving Bully: He often picks on his crush, Kaeloo, to get a reaction out of her.
  • Made of Iron: One episode had him treat Bad Kaeloo’s beating like a massage. Keep in mind that this is the same Bad Kaeloo who managed to catch a meteorite with her bare hands in Episode 77.
  • Mad Libs Catch Phrase: "What do you mean, [insert shocking statement said by other character]?"
  • Mad Scientist: He apparently has several inventions and likes to conduct scientific experiments.

  • Mean Boss:
    • To Stumpy in Episode 64.
    • To Kaeloo in Episode 94.

  • Mr. Fixit: He can repair broken machines with ease.
  • My Instincts Are Showing: In Episode 74, he pounces on the ball and plays with it like a real cat would.
  • Narcissist: "Let's Play Figurines" had him Comically Overreacting to losing a whisker.
  • The Nicknamer: He rarely calls anybody by their real name, opting to use a nickname based on their species or its traits. For example, Kaeloo the frog is "Froggy", "Tadpole" or "Fly-Nibbler". Stumpy the squirrel is "Nutcracker" and Quack Quack the duck is "Duck-face".
  • Nightmare Fetishist: He is an Ax-Crazy psychopath whose favorite hobby is torturing Quack Quack and he has a crush on a big, muscular toad who always beats him up.
  • No Name Given: What is his first name?

    Stumpy: Wow, you really do know a lot about funerals, Mr. Cat.
    Mr. Cat: (sadly) A bit too much, Stumpy...
  • Not So Above It All: He normally says he doesn’t want to participate in the others' games, but in Episode 99, he admits that he hates it when they have fun without him. In "Let's Play Scaredy Cat", he actually yells at them for not asking him to join.
  • Oedipus Complex: He straight up says in one episode that he has oedipus complex, though a little bit of therapy apparently almost helped him get over it.
  • Off-Model: In the Pilot.
  • Offscreen Teleportation: He can do this even without using a cat flap.
  • Ooh, Me Accent's Slipping: In the English dub, his voice actor often slides between an American accent and an Australian one, sometimes even in the middle of a sentence. In some cases, it leaves him with a weird accent that sounds half-American and half-Australian.
  • Opposites Attract: He is an Ax-Crazy and cynical Jerkass who has a crush on the friendly and cheerful Nice Girl Kaeloo.
  • Parental Incest: Mentions having an oedipus complex towards his mother.
  • Parental Favoritism: In "Let's Play Spies", he mentions that one of the reasons his brothers bullied him was because he was their mother's favorite child.

  • Politically Incorrect Villain: He is a cat supremacist and a sexist.
  • Popular Is Dumb: Averted. He's well-liked by his peers, but he's the smartest of the cast.
  • Prehensile Tail: He uses his tail for various purposes, such as holding things and playing soccer.
  • Raised by Wolves: In "Let's Play Baby-Sitting", he tells Kaeloo that was raised by a salmon (a normal one, not a Funny Animal) who saved him when his horribly abusive family tried to drown him.

  • Scary Teeth: Whenever he gives ones of his trademark Slasher Smiles, all of his teeth suddenly become sharp, as opposed to just his canines.
  • Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness: Mr. Cat has the tendency to do this sometimes. Of course, nobody understands what he's talking about, since he's Surrounded by Idiots, so he ends up having to explain it in simpler terms.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: Mr. Cat tends to swear a lot. Depending on the episode, it's either the Gosh Darn It to Heck! type of "swearing", or actual swears that get bleeped out.
  • Slasher Smile: He pulls one almost Once an Episode.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Mr. Cat believes himself to be cooler than he actually is.

  • Species Surname: "Mr. Cat" the cat. When he was a kitten, people used to call him Mr. Kitten.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: The series might as well be called "The Mr. Cat Show".

  • That Poor Cat: Always winds up being the "poor cat" in question.
  • Token Evil Teammate: He's one of the main cast, but he is a Villain Protagonist.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: While still snarky, cruel and mean-spirited, he comes off as more of an actual friend to the other characters in later episodes.

  • Trademark Favorite Food: He loves sausages.

Secondary Characters

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/prettyonly.jpg

The main cast's neighbor. She is an Alpha Bitch who considers herself to be the pinnacle of beauty. She is madly in love with Mr. Catnote  (not that the feeling is even close to being reciprocated), but she utterly despises the rest of the cast except Eugly, who she does have a few Pet the Dog moments with. Pretty will do anything to look good and stay young and slim.


    Eugly 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/euglybackstage.jpg

The fraternal twin sister of Pretty, Eugly is a fat, ugly rabbit with a kind heart. She’s capable of beating anybody up, but she rarely does so of her own accord, usually under Pretty’s orders.

Stumpy's long-distance girlfriend who he met online, and one of the few people to actually treat him well. She is mostly just mentioned in passing, or if she is physically present in the episode, she is offscreen.
  • Beauty = Goodness: Ursula is apparently really beautiful and she is one of the few genuinely nice characters on the show.
  • Cats Are Mean: Averted. She's one of the nicest characters the show has to offer.
