Here's a (small) list of characters from Lucas the Spider.

    open/close all folders 
The main character of the series, Lucas is a young jumping spider who wants to make friends.

A fly that first appeared in the episode New Friend. Typically makes buzzing noises when he talks.
  • Big Eater: Manages to eat a whole plate of chocolate covered strawberries with Lucas, and managed not to get bloated. Also, he doesn't hesitate to eat out of the garbage. Justified since he's a fly, and they can eat anything.
  • Dumpster Dive: Likes to do this to get food, much to Lucas' disgusted chagrin.
  • Lovable Coward: Much humour stems from Bzzt being paranoid that Lucas will eat him. Justified since Lucas's species is notably predatory, but fortunately, Lucas is an herbivorous jumping spider.
  • Odd Friendship: Lucas wants to be friends with Bzzt even though spiders normally eat flies. Lampshaded in "I'm Starving".
  • Promoted to Opening Titles: In "I'm Starving", courtesy of Lucas carrying him onstage.
    Lucas: New friend!
  • Satellite Character: Enforced. He is the only other CGI Funny Animal besides Lucas, existing largely to give him someone else to talk to.
  • Suddenly Voiced: He initially only seems to make buzzing sounds. However by his second appearance, he does talk.
  • Verbal Tic: "Bzzt!"
  • What Measure Is a Non-Cute?: Bzzt is a housefly, yet he's not all that less endearing than Lucas.
  • Who Names Their Kid "Dude"?: Lucas thinks "Bzzt" is the fly's actual name and points out how weird it is.

    The "Polar Bear" 
A "polar bear" (actually a dog) that Lucas first encountered in the episode Polar Bear.
  • Big Friendly Dog: Is more interested in laying around on the kitchen floor than he is actively pursuing Lucas. In fact, the only time he has chased Lucas so far was because he was curiously following the tiny spider that just booped him.
  • Canis Major: Well, at least from Lucas's perspective. He's a normal-sized lab from a human's perspective.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: Unlike Lucas and Bzzt, the "Polar Bear" is a live action dog.

    The Human 
The owner (or at least one of the owners) of the house Lucas dwells in.
  • Gentle Giant: Given how he opted to simply capture Lucas rather than harm him, he may be an example of this.
  • The Ghost: The human almost never actually appears in the shorts. About the only time we've seen him is in the episode Captured where he appears as a blurry silhouette that observes the captured Lucas.

    The Bird 
A bird that stole Lucas's harp at the end of the episode Encore.
  • Feathered Fiend: Its only time onscreen is to steal Lucas's handmade harp for no apparent reason other than it could.
  • Jerkass: Stole Lucas's harp for apparently no reason. Fortunately, Lucas did recover said harp from its nest in Naptime.
