     Noel and Friends 

Noel

The star of the show. An eccentric artist.

  • Adam Westing: Though given that it's Noel Fielding, there's no telling how much is an exaggeration.
  • Amicable Exes: Noel and Dolly used to date. Now, despite their near-constant bickering, they seem to have no problem staying friends.
  • Anything That Moves: Being a talking animal or an object doesn't stop Noel from being attracted to someone.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: Noel's feud with King Tutta the mountain has shades of this. Throughout the episode a distant mountain keeps tutting and looking disgusted every time Noel makes a joke. Noel retaliates by scorching the mountain's cheek with a hot teaspoon, but later realises he was actually tutting because he was performing a capella with some other mountains, at which point Noel apologises and admits to being "slightly in love" with King Tutta.
  • Better as Friends: Noel and Dolly have zero sexual tension despite having once dated. Noel gets a bit irritated whenever Dolly mentions men she dated behind Noel's back when they were together, though.
  • Berserk Button: Don't tell him how to barbecue.
  • Bishie Sparkle: Noel wears glitter on his cheeks throughout the final episode and he's as close to a real life Bishonen as you can get.
  • Childhood Friends: Noel and Dolly have known each other since they were four years old, according to a deleted scene shown in the Making Of documentary on the series one DVD.
  • The Dandy: Wears the mos extravagant outfits known to humanity.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to Smooth's blue.

Smooth

Noel's butler and the Only Sane Man.

Andy Warhol

Noel's housekeeper and possibly a robot.

  • Adorkable: Despite being the pioneer of both Noel and Dolly's lifestyles, he's considerably more of a goofy nerd than either.
  • Ambiguously Human: His robotic voice and movements, along with dispensing tickets when he laughs make it unlikely.
  • Attractive Bent-Gender: Apparently Andy Warhol is this when he masquerades as Frida Kahlo. Although it's plainly just Andy in drag, Smooth still seems to fancy him.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: Has very little in common with the real Andy Warhol.
  • Machine Monotone
  • Signature Laugh: When Andy Warhol laughs, a string of "individual laughter sheets, strung together like theatre tickets or sausages" comes from his mouth.

Dolly

Noel's best friend. A model and concept artist.

  • Amicable Exes: Noel and Dolly used to date. Now, despite their near-constant bickering, they seem to have no problem staying friends.
  • Anything That Moves: Inanimate objects can "Really turn her on right now."
  • Better as Friends: Noel and Dolly have zero sexual tension despite having once dated. Noel gets a bit irritated whenever Dolly mentions men she dated behind Noel's back when they were together, though.
  • Childhood Friends: Noel and Dolly have known each other since they were four years old, according to a deleted scene shown in the Making Of documentary on the series one DVD.
  • The Fashionista: Loves clothing.
  • The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything: Supposedly has many jobs (model, DJ, knitwear designer) but we never see her doing any of them.
  • Really Gets Around: Dolly has dated most of the cast. Several of them while she was still dating Noel.
  • The Smurfette Principle: Dolly is pretty much the only recurring female in the universe.
  • Unexplained Accent: Despite allegedly being Noel's friend since childhood, Dolly has a thick German accent. This is hardly the weirdest thing about the show.

     Noel's Neighbours 

Secret Peter

Noel's landlord.

Tony Reason

A manta ray that's also a music producer.

  • Ass Shove: Apparently Tony Reason's method of familiarising himself with a new work colleague is to insert his finger into that person's anus. That said, Tony doesn't even have fingers, so Lord knows how he manages it.
  • Civilized Animal: Acts very calm.
  • Talking Animal: It turns out most marine life can talk, as seen when he argues with a hammerhead shark.
  • Trademark Favourite Food: Tofu.

Todd Laguna

A hammerhead shark.

Jeremy Beautiful Chest

A dancer with a large heart on his chest.

     Recurring Characters 

Fantasy Man

A wannabe crusader who imagines questing through a virtual world when in reality he's just running around London being a nuisance.

  • Arch-Enemy: Manages to agitate a policeman that he refers to as "the Bobbatron".
  • Captain Ersatz: Of Don Quixote.
  • Do Not Call Me "Paul": His real name is Sandy.
  • I Reject Your Reality: Unlike most characters who show up in the various jokes, Fantasy Man does not exist in Noel's world, but in (an) actual reality which he constantly tries to escape from into a 80's text adventure world.
  • Talking Animal: His steed is a unicorn with a soulful singing voice.
  • Windmill Crusader: Has gone on quests such as kidnapping a cat that he believed was "The Dream Tiger" (whack).

Dondylion

A lion trapped in a zoo.

  • Back from the Dead: Having been run over by several vehicles in episode 6, he shows up alive and unharmed in episode 7. It's implied that this is because he's a figment of Noel's imagination.
  • Madness Mantra: "It's all bleedin' coming together..."
  • Suddenly SHOUTING!: Each sketch ends with him screaming in anguish.
  • Talking Animal

The Audience

A purple clown with mechanical insides.

A man with a zen voice who feeds the Audience mashed potatoes. He's also a doctor.

Joey Ramone

A claymation figure of the real Joey Ramone.

Terry

The only fan of the series.

  • Dropped a Bridge on Him: He seemed like he was going to be a regular character, but he died at the end of the second episode.
  • Fanboy: Absolutely psyched to be in the second series, to the point where he'd take a meteor to save it.
  • Self-Deprecation: Created as a response to the lukewarm reviews the first series received.

     One-Off Characters 

Ghost of a Flea

William Blake's creation come to life.

  • Bizarre Alien Biology: He has a prehensile tongue, a power cord for a tail and lightbulbs in his spine.
  • Vocal Dissonance: He normally has a nigh-pitched voice that's barely intelligible, but can switch to a contralto tone when he's singing.

Little Chrissy, Claw, Spoon Snake & McCoy

A travelling group on a quest to see the Jelly Fox.

  • Amazing Technicolour Population: Should come as no surprise, since they live "over the rainbow".
  • Cartoon Creature: McCoy might be a sea urchin, but the character designs are too loose to confirm.
  • Catchphrase: Spoon Snake can only say "Am IIIIIIIII nothing?".
  • Cat Folk: Little Chrissy.
  • Color-Coded Characters:
    • Little Chrissy is red, the leader and has a history of bloodshed.
    • Claw is blue and passive.
    • Spoon Snake is green and as the only character with a secondary colour, acts a little out there.
    • McCoy is yellow and unruly.
  • Expy: Of the protagonists from The Wizard of Oz.
  • Tin Man: Little Chrissy is an inversion. Instead of having a hidden heart of gold, he's a serial killer who wants to forget about his past.
  • Verbal Tic: Claw goes "Hm-hmmm" and McCoy makes crunching sounds.

King Tutta

A mountain that keeps clucking his tongue to the annoyance of Noel.

Ian Guage

A French-sounding lounge singer and tennis player.

The Tiger with Chlamydia

A giant tiger-head on legs that gives chlamydiya by striking people with his prehensile penis.

  • Incoming Ham: THE TIGER WITH CHLAMYDIYA! DUM DUM DUUUUMMMMM!
  • Kaiju: As tall as a skyscraper.

Paul Panfer

A Hawaiian panther-man and film star.

  • Cat Folk: Has the head of a panther, among other things.
  • Character Shilling: His movies have two hand puppets talking about how cool he is and nothing else.
  • Mix And Match Creature: On top of being a panther-man, he's also got breasts, blue skin and multiple eyes.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: He's explicitly compared to Elvis Presley.
  • Surfer Dude: Always seen surfing. He even uses his surfboard as a weapon against Magnum P.I.

Fantasy Block

A giant that stifles Noel's creativity.

  • Arc Villain: Of the second episode in Series 2.
  • Fat Bastard: He looks like the Michelin Man and tears down ideas.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Since the entire series relies on Noel's imagination, Fantasy Block's presence poses a serious threat.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Getting Terry Gilliam's shit on his skin makes him explode.

Reality Man

A television executive that wants to turn Luxury Comedy into a reality series.

  • Arc Villain: Of the third episode in Series 2.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Fantasy Man. He even has the chin-cup.
  • Executive Meddling: In-universe.
  • Fantastic Racism: He vandalises the wardrobe to Narnia in a manner reminiscent of xenophobic harassment.
  • Jerkass: Calls Noel "Fantasy Dick".
  • Knight of Cerebus: Along with Fantasy Block, he's a serious threat to the fantastical elements of the series. Taking it up a notch in that he was able to curb-stomp Fantasy Man and Big Chief with no effort.
  • Self-Deprecation: He enjoys watching panel shows with celebrities talking about current events in an irreverent manner. Sounds like Never Mind the Buzzcocks, of which Noel Fielding is a regular panelist.
  • Take That!: Towards reality tv shows, Big Brother in particular.

The Cucumbers of Cool

An alien race of cucumber people that inspired the definition of the word "cool".

  • Contrasting Sequel Antagonist: To Fantasy Block and Reality Man. Instead of representing the death of creativity, they're just run-of-the-mill villains that are defeated by reasoning.
  • Cool Teacher: One of the cucumbers wants to be a teacher, though his coolness is debatable.
  • Cursed With Awesome: As a result of being obsessed with trendiness, none of their race has the skill set needed to advance their civilisation.
  • Informed Attribute: Despite being the harbingers of cool, they act incredibly dorky.
  • Plant Person: Overlapping with Anthropomorphic Food.
