    Boog 

Boog

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/boog.png
Voiced by:
Martin Lawrence (first film)
Mike Epps (second film)
Matthew J Munn (third film)
Donny Lucas (Scared Silly)
The main protagonist of the first film. A bear raised by Forest Ranger Beth, treated like a beloved pet, who performs in shows put on to teach people about wild animals. A performance gone wrong leads to him being set free, and after a movie of misadventures, he decides to remain in the woods.
  • Bears Are Bad News: Generally not the case, but if he gets ticked off, he gets ticked off. When he thinks that Elliot died to protect him from Shaw, he ties the hunter up with his gun.
  • Beary Friendly: Being a domesticated bear and all, he's quite harmless as far as grizzlies go.
  • Beary Funny: He rides a unicycle for crackers, to start with.
  • Berserk Button: Being told he weighs 1,200 pounds instead of 900.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: A very friendly and harmless grizzly bear, but whatever you do, do not hurt any of his friends. Shaw learned this the hard way.
  • Big Eater: He's usually the first member of the group to get hungry, but could go with just some fishy crackers through most of the first film.
  • Big Guy, Little Guy: With Elliot.
  • Butt-Monkey: Throughout the first film. Mainly because since he was a City Mouse he had a hard time adapting to the forest life and got beaten around by the other woodland creatures.
  • City Mouse: He was a domesticated bear raised by Beth and has a hard time adapting to the forest until the end where he decides to stay with Elliot and the other animals.
  • Cool Pet: Formerly Beth's pet.
  • Gentle Giant: A 900-pound grizzly bear who wouldn't hurt a fly.

Voiced by:
Ashton Kutcher (first film)
Joel McHale (second film)
Matthew W. Taylor (third film)
Will Townsend (Scared Silly)
A one-antlered mule deer that, after a series of accidents and misadventures, eventually becomes Boog's best friend.

    Beth 

Beth

Voiced by:
Debra Messing
A forest ranger that lovingly raised Boog.

    Shaw 

Shaw

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shaw_open_season.jpg
Voiced by:
Gary Sinise (first film)
Trevor Devall (Scared Silly)
The main antagonist of the first and fourth film. A sinister hunter that enjoys his hobby, though paranoia and a series of events involving Boog and Elliot later make him think he's the last defense against an animal uprising.
  • Affably Evil: Is this towards others, ruthless with animals when nobody but hunters around.
  • Arbitrary Skepticism: He believes animals will overthrow mankind but doesn't believe Bigfoot is real. And he doesn't believe in the werewolf until he believes he encountered one in Scared Silly.
  • Ax-Crazy: He loves attacking defenceless animals without provocation: he intentionally swerves off-road to hit Elliot with his car, tries to kill Boog when he realises the latter's in his house and he's all-too-happy to attempt to kill the duo when he believes an animal uprising is happening.
  • Big Bad: Of the first film and Scared Silly.
  • Evil Poacher: The Big Bad of the first film and hunts a lot.
  • Humiliation Conga: Has this in the first film when defeated by Boog and his newfound friends.
  • I Call Her "Vera": He named his hunting rifle Lorraine.
  • Implacable Man: Give him credit, he can be pretty damn driven when he feels like it. A major action setpiece of the first film is him giving chase when Boog and Elliot try to escape him by diving into the river by driving his damn truck into the river himself and using it as a makeshift speedboat.
  • Jerkass: Cruel, sociopathic, and selfish.
  • Large Ham: Courtesy of Gary Sinise in the first film and Trevor Devall in the fourth film.
  • Laughably Evil: His expressively evil personality in the first film, by his varied, humorous dialog/sass and his sense of humor is very comical; it can arguably be considered more funnier than Beth's sense of humor itself.
  • Smug Snake: He acts this way when Beth confronts him about hunting a deer off season and when he thinks he has Boog dead-for-rights, while done humorously.
  • Tar and Feathers: The animals inflict this fate upon him at the end of the first film.

    Sheriff Gordy 

Sheriff Gordy

Voiced by:
Gordon Tootoosis (1st film), Lorne Cardinal (Scared Silly)
The sheriff of the town of Timberline.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: He's just trying to keep his town safe and while he urges Beth to get rid of Boog, it's clear that he knows it's in the best interest of everyone.

     McSquizzy 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mcsquizzy_open_season_24547971_287_305.jpg

    Bob & Bobbie 

Bob & Bobbie

Bobbie voiced by:
Georgia Engel (first three films)
Kathleen Barr (Scared Silly)
Mr. Weenie's owners who are attempting to track down Bigfoot.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: Inverted. Bob is skinny and Bobbie is fat.
  • Running Gag: Whenever Bob tries to speak, Bobbie cuts him off.
  • The Voiceless: Bob has never spoken a word in the films. This is mostly due to his wife cutting him off. The only time Bob has ever made a sound is at the end of the second film during the Sudden Musical Ending.

    Mr. Weenie 

Mr. Weenie

Voiced by:
Cody Cameron (first three films)
Will Townsend (Scared Silly)
A wiener dog originally belonging to Bob & Bobbie, though he hates that life and ends up siding with the forest animals..

    Buddy 

Buddy

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/buddy_open_season_2798225_400_395.jpg
BUDDY!
Voiced by:
Matthew W. Taylor (first three films)
Lee Tockar (Scared Silly)
A small porcupine that thinks Elliot is his buddy after the deer helps remove him from Boog's posterior (after the bear accidentally fell on him).

    Giselle 

Giselle

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/giselle_open_season.png
Voiced by:
Jane Krakowski (first two films)
Melissa Sturm (third film and Scared Silly)
Elliot's love interest and later wife.
  • Hartman Hips: Giselle has a noticeably large butt.
  • Male Gaze: Her literally heart-shaped butt is often shown throughout the film.
  • Only Sane Man: Whenever Boog, Elliot, and Giselle form a trio, she is easily the least crazy one of the three and the one who has to keep the guys in check.
  • Parenting the Husband: In the third film, when she leaves to visit her mother, she tells the kids to watch over their father. Given how much of a clumsy klutz Elliot is and how many bad situations he gets himself into, it's pretty justified.

    Ian 

Ian

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ian_open_season.png
Voiced by:
Patrick Warburton (first film)
Matthew W. Taylor (second and third films)
Brian Drummond (Scared Silly)
The leader of the deer herd that Elliot's from. Originally banished Elliot, but they eventually have to work together.
  • Ain't Too Proud to Beg: He certainly learns this about himself when Shaw and his buddies are coming to kill every animal in the forest, and Boog and Elliot are the only ones who can help them.
  • The Bully: His whole attitude towards Elliot in the first film, verbally and physically abusing him for his amusement over Elliot's perceived weakness.
  • The Ditz: Macho and tough as he may be, he's also goofy and spacey.
  • Dumb Muscle: Strong, proud, and not too bright.
  • Heel–Face Turn: He's a minor antagonist in the first film with a history of bullying Elliot (for being weak in his eyes, and because they both like Giselle). Eventually, he's forced to beg Boog and Elliot for help to save his life and his herd's lives from being hunted, when the animals all team up to confront Shaw during the climax. Afterwards, he's shown to be on better terms with Boog, Elliot and Giselle.
  • Jerkass: As leader of his herd, he's frequently singled out Elliot for mockery and public humiliation, kicked him around, and finally kicked him out of the herd to fend for himself. He gets better after his Heel–Face Turn.
  • Jerk Jock: He picks on Elliot, and tries to hit on Giselle.
  • Moose Are Idiots: He's a deer, but still an idiot. Still comes across as smarter than the other male deer shown (especially Elliot).
  • Screams Like a Little Girl: To be fair, it's a very justified reaction to an incoming flood.
  • Reformed Bully: Ian is thoroughly humbled after he's forced to beg Boog and Elliot for help saving his life from Shaw, and he begrudgingly renounces his bullying ways for good after the end of the first film.
  • Smug Snake: He's a very cocky stag with a healthy opinion of how strong and tough he is.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: A downplayed example. Ian goes from being a violent, aggressive bully to a rude but otherwise harmless stag later in the series who becomes friends with the two protagonists.
