https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lgl_luna_the_moon.png
Voiced by: Judy Greer
Luna is the moon, who is the main character of the series. She guides Andy, Carmen, and Leo on their trips around the world.
  • 100% Adoration Rating: She is loved by the people of China, as shown in "She is the Moon of Moons".
  • A Dog Named "Dog": "Luna" is the word for "moon" in Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Latin, and Romanian.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: "Luna's Christmas Around the World" ends with Luna noticing she has one fruitcake she hasn't given to anyone for Christmas yet. She wishes the viewers a merry Christmas as she offers them the fruitcake.

  • Cool Big Sis: Luna is described as being like a big sister to Andy, Carmen, and Leo, and Luna is very patient and caring towards them.

  • Forgetful Jones: "Andy The Giant" reveals that she forgets things in a couple hundred years.
  • Half-Dressed Cartoon Animal: She just wears a hat and shoes.
  • Involuntary Dance: She dances whenever she hears music. Downplayed in that this is a reflex rather than another character's doing.

  • The Man in the Moon: She is a female anthropomorphic moon.
  • Nice Hat: She wears a straw hat.
  • Sanity Slippage: In "C'est La Vie A Paris", she starts becoming insane due to Hockbar not relaxing on his break. Later, it's Luna who needs to relax. She even gets a Twitchy Eye.

Voiced by: Jaiden Cannatelli
Andy is an American Leopard frog who loves painting.
  • Absurd Phobia: Implied in the episode "Day of the Dead", where Luna explains to Carmen that it's a good idea to laugh in the face of anything you fear to make it less scary. The others explain what fears they laugh at, which are pretty standard phobias... until it gets to Andy, who says he laughs at asparagus.
  • Artsy Beret: Wears a blue beret due to his love of art.
  • Barefoot Cartoon Animal: He doesn't wear any shoes, which stands out when he's with his friends, Carmen and Leo, who do wear shoes.

  • Feud Episode: In "Pulling Strings", a day of exploration in Delhi, India is brought to a halt when Carmen and Andy can't decide what to do and have an argument over it (Carmen wants to hear Indian music while Andy wants to see Indian art). Leo and Luna decide to put on a Kathputli puppet show for the two, under the logic that since that combines music and art, they both should like it and be able to make up over it.

  • I Call It "Vera": As shown in "Where's Luna?", he names his telescope Jessie.
  • Keet: He is easily excitable and loud.
