Main Characters

Mr. Bogus

Voiced by: Cam Clarke

First appearance: "Meet Mr. Bogus"

The main character of the show who is exuberant, simple-minded, cheerful, and happy-go-lucky, Mr. Bogus (or just simply known as Bogus) will very often find adventure, where he least expects it. He is the main source of the show's comic relief as he often gets himself into all kinds of comedic situations, much like he did in the original Claymation shorts. Despite the fact that he is rather clumsy in nearly every kind of situation, Bogus will nonetheless be there to fix the problem that he caused. He also has a younger cousin named Brattus, who often gets on his nerves. Bogus also loves to eat, as he will very often chow down on any kind of food that he can get his hands on.

Brattus

Voiced by: Russi Taylor

First Appearance: "Et Tu, Brattus?"

Bogus's bratty younger cousin. As indicated by his namesake, Brattus can be very bratty and unruly, much to Bogus's annoyance. The relationship between Bogus and Brattus is near similar to that of Garfield and Nermal, except the only difference is that while Garfield simply cannot stand Nermal just because he is so cute, Bogus appears to be slightly more tolerant of Brattus, even when he often tries Bogus's patience. Despite his mischievious tendencies, Brattus has often proven himself to be slightly more level-headed and competent than Bogus, when he gets into any kind of scrape. Brattus is distinguishable from Bogus by his slightly smaller size, his frizzy red hair, and a single bucktooth sticking out from the left side of his mouth.


The Dirt Dudes

Voiced by: Various

First Appearance: "Et Tu, Brattus?"

Bogus's secondary enemies. They exist purely to cause trouble for Bogus and/or antagonize him periodically. As their name indicates, they are anthropomorphic dust bunnies who live in different areas of the Anybody residence. However, how Bogus interacts with them varies exponentially; they can be either antagonistic towards him, or they can sometimes assist him in any kind of activity, regardless of the cost.


Tommy Anybody

Voiced by: Jeannie Elias

First Appearance: "Class Clown Bogus"

The young boy who Bogus lives with. Tommy is one of Bogus's good friends and often serves as the voice of reason to try and keep Bogus out of trouble. Although Tommy sometimes becomes exasperated with Bogus's antics, he and Bogus are still good friends in spite of that.


Mr. Anybody

Voiced by: Pat Fraley

First Appearance: "Meet Mr. Bogus"

The well-meaning yet long-suffering, scatterbrained father of Tommy. Mr. Anybody is basically a little bit like Bogus, in both personality and demeanor. Even if he may seem a little bit unorthodox, there are actually a few times where he has pulled through for his son.


Mrs. Anybody

Voiced by: Tress MacNeille

First Appearance: "Meet Mr. Bogus"

Tommy's loving mother and the husband of Mr. Anybody. Even though she is just about as scatterbrained as Mr. Anybody is, in regards to the existence of Bogus, she can actually come across as rather intelligent and resourceful in ways that can surprise even Tommy himself.


Ratty

Voiced by: Jim Cummings

First Appearance: "Meet Mr. Bogus"

Bogus's biggest enemy, a big and bad gray rat who will go out of his way to best Bogus or try to steal any kind of valuable treasures that he can get his dirty paws on (In a manner near similar to that of Daffy Duck). Aided by his mole sidekick, aptly named Mole, there is no doubt that Ratty gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "lowdown sneaky rat".


Mole

Voiced by: Pat Fraley

First Appearance: "Meet Mr. Bogus"

Ratty's partner-in-crime, a dim-witted brown mole who is happy to do anything that Ratty tells him. It is noted that while Mole is just as villainous as Ratty is, he's not nearly as ruthless as Ratty.


Minor Characters

Aunt Bogunda

Voiced by: Tress MacNeille

First Appearance: "Et Tu, Brattus?"

Bogus's overbearing and rather strict aunt, and Brattus's mother, and one of the very few denizens of Bogusland that Bogus absolutely fears. Despite her rather strict demeanor, Bogunda is actually shown to show love for her son and nephew.


Bogetta

Voiced by: Tress MacNeille

First appearance: "Computer Intruder"

Bogus's other younger cousin and Aunt Bogunda's daughter. Bogetta does not appear as often as Brattus does, but when she does, she is mostly placed just to look cute or to be placed in any sort of danger that befalls her.


Kevin the bulldog

Vocal effects by: Jeannie Elias

First Appearance: "Meet Mr. Bogus"

The Anybody family's pet bulldog who is very rough and tumble and does not take very kindly to Bogus. However, there are times where Kevin will help Bogus and will often assist him in the line of duty, when the situation calls for it.


Jake and Butch

Voiced by: ???

First appearance: "Meet Mr. Bogus"

Bogus's other two enemies. They are a pair of burglars who are constantly conspiring and scheming to rob the Anybody residence, or whatever store they enter, without any success, due to their own bumbling, thanks to Bogus. Jake is overweight and has a bit of an attitude problem while Butch is skinnier and is easily spooked by the slightest thing.


Baddus

Voiced by: Cam Clarke

First appearance: "Computer Intruder"

The evil version of Bogus who exists mainly to cause trouble, unlike his goodhearted counterpart. When he appears, he will most often cause trouble for Bogus or to the citizens of Bogusland. Baddus is easily distinguished by his green skin, his yellow eyes, and more gremlinish appearance.


Evil Bogus Clone

Voiced by: ???

First appearance: "Computer Intruder"

Another one of Bogus's enemies as well as a really huge and deformed version of Bogus. He first made his appearance as the one who pitted Bogus and Baddus against each other while Bogus was exploring the inside of Tommy's computer. In his second appearance, he started going after Bogus when he was experiencing a streak of bad luck, but ended up getting his just desserts in the end.


Bogus's Good And Bad Sides

Voiced by: Cam Clarke

First appearance: "Hipster Tripster"

Anytime Bogus finds himself in a jam, these are the two sides of his conscience that he turns to for assistance. Unlike the stereotypical angel and devil sides, Bogus's good side is depicted as a philosopher while his bad side is depicted as a gangster. Bogus's good side is known to have a strong sense of honor and obedience while Bogus's bad side is more burlier and prone to using drastic measures to get Bogus to make rash decisions.
