    Peri 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/peri_to_entrees_entree_7373.PNG

Voiced by: Rob Stefaniuk
An incredibly naive and overly optimistic mutant who has no actual knowledge of his purpose in life or what he's even spliced from, yet yearns to find out.
  • Adorkable: A sweet and cheerful little guy who sees the best in everyone on Keepaway Island.
  • All-Loving Hero: Considers Joe a great guy even though their interactions mostly consist of Joe stepping on him (literally), is the only mutant who doesn't hate Smarty Smarts and actually seems to like him, is always quick to forgive Entree for even the worst mistakes, and even once tried to befriend the Wunny Sharbit, who generally terrifies everyone (for good reason)-and it worked. For a few minutes at least.
  • Cartoon Creature: What species he's been created from are unknown. He looks very similar to Octocat however, and one episode showed he's at least part caterpillar when he underwent metamorphosis and grew butterfly wings.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Peri can shape-shift, detach his limbs, and turn people into his slaves with butterfly wings (when he grows some in one episode).
  • Desperately Looking for a Purpose in Life: The pilot had Peri finding the Doctor's notebook after completely trashing his abandoned laboratory, which contained a diagram of Peri along with specifications below, possibly explaining his true intent in life. Peri and Entree were both illiterate, and Entree ended up using it as toilet paper when they did find someone who could read by the end of the episode.
  • The Ditz: Neither he or Entree are particularly intelligent, but Peri at least seems to have somewhat more common sense than his fried.
  • Fat and Skinny: The skinny to Entree's fat.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Entree.
  • Kindhearted Simpleton: In sharp contrast to the equally moronic but far less sympathetic Entree.
  • Lethal Chef: In the first episode, he tried to make Entree a sandwich. It ended up as some kind of sandwich-spider hybrid thing. With tentacles. That could fly.
  • Line-of-Sight Name: "Peri" is the only part of the phrase "Failed Experiment Number Thirteen" (what he's really called) that actually sounds like a name.
  • Nice Guy: In sharp contrast to Entree, Peri is friendly towards everyone and is usually the first of the duo to realize when their mischief has gone too far.
  • Overly Long Tongue: "Stuck Together" shows Peri to have one so long that he can use it to walk on.
  • The Pollyanna: Peri sees the best in everything and everyone.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Whatever he is, he is pretty adorable.
  • The Straight Man: At least compared to Entree, and sometimes to Joe.
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist: His optimism makes him very naive and easy for some of the less scrupulous characters (namely Entree and Mister Smarty Smarts) to manipulate,

    Entree 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/entree_3500.PNG

Voiced by: Joe Pingue
Peri's best friend; a combination of chicken, cow, shrimp, and pig who was designed to be the ultimate food animal. He's basically a bottomless pit with an attitude problem.
  • Animal Gender-Bender: He has an udder which produces milk. Apparently he also lays eggs.
  • Big Eater: To the point where even his own stomach got tired of his obsessive habits of literally eating everything he sees.
  • Butt-Monkey: While all the main characters get their share of slapstick and misfortune in the show, he almost always gets the worst of it (and frequently as karma for his jerkassery).
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Entree can (among other things) fly, teleport, mind-control people, and summon sea creatures to do his bidding, all thanks to the teats on his udder.
  • The Ditz: He's not much brighter than Peri, but Peri is the more sensible of the two.
  • Extreme Omnivore: He actually once tried to eat his own freaking house!
  • Fat Bastard: He's a pretty rotund mutant and also quite the bastard, given his rude and selfish traits.
  • Fat Idiot: Quite plump and quite stupid.
  • Gluttonous Pig: He's part pig but all glutton. He loves food.
  • I Call Him "Mr. Happy": Entree has named the teats on his udder. Except for one...
    Peri: But what about that one?
    Entree: I dare not speak his name. It gives him power.
    *cue ominous thunder*
  • Jerkass: In sharp contrast to Peri, Entree is unrepentantly greedy, selfish, lazy, and uncaring towards others.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He has his moments. When Peri is seriously endangered by his assholish behaviour, Entree will usually realize that he's gone too far and do whatever it takes to rescue his friend.
  • Large Ham: Or in this case, Large Ham-Beef-Chicken-Shrimp.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: His selfish behaviour often lands him in the worst kinds of trouble, usually of the painful variety.
  • Lazy Bum: It's not emphasized as much as his gluttony or selfishness but he certainly has demonstrated extreme laziness. The episode "Roots" is a shining example of it.
  • Let's Meet the Meat: Invoked repeatedly. He seems to be aware that he was made to be food and has no problem with it.
    Patricia: Stop! Entree's not for eating!
    Entree: Well, actually...
  • Meaningful Name: Entree is a very appropriate name for someone who was created to be a meal.
  • The Slacker: So lazy that he once ended up growing roots and turning into a tree.
  • Toxic Friend Influence: To Peri, whom Entree often abuses and manipulates for his own gain.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: "Ma-yo-nnaise. Na-now!"
  • With Friends Like These...: It's evident that the only reason why Peri puts up with Entree's mistreatment of him is because he's not smart enough to realize it's wrong.
  • Won The Superpower Lottery: He mainly uses them for walking, but in various gags it's been shown that his udder's teats grant him the powers of flight, teleportation, mind-control, Super Strength enough to drag entire islands through the ocean, and telekinesis.

     Two-Legs Joe and Lord Wingus Eternum 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/two_legs_joseph_5642.PNG

Voiced by: Patrick McKenna (Two-Legs Joe) and Tom McCamus (Lord Wingus Eternum)
A short-tempered, two-legged rhinoceros with a small bird attached to his rear end. Joe is the mayor of Keepaway Island and defends its inhabitants from various threats. Wingus doesn't do much, but he occasionally breaks his vow of silence to speak to Joe when absolutely necessary.
  • Authority Equals Ass Kicking: As the mayor, Joe's only effective act of discipline is stomping someone until they change into another state of matter.
  • Awesome McCoolname/Name That Unfolds Like Lotus Blossom: Lord Wingus Eternum.
    Lord Wingus Eternum: Lord Wingus Eternum is short. My true name would begin with a dawn, end with the moon, and ravage your mind like a nightmare.
  • Calling Your Attacks: He names all of the different types of stomps before he does them.
  • Green Lantern Ring: His stomps seem to have an endless range of effects from earthquakes, hurricanes, teleportation, closing black holes, and even shifting the moon.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Joe has very little patience for any disruptions to the island's peace and quiet, especially if said disruptions were caused by Peri and Entree.
  • Nice Hat: Joe's top hat.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Violent and short-tempered Joe is the red oni to the intellectual and soft-spoken Wingus' blue oni.
  • Rhino Rampage: Technically he's only half of a rhino, but as Peri, Entree, and Mister Smarty Smarts have all learned the hard way repeatedly, pissing him off is an extremely bad idea.
  • The Quiet One: Wingus speaks in only two episodes, both of which are focused on him. The rest of the time, he's pretty much just a feathery growth on Joe's rump.
  • Shockwave Stomp: Joe is capable of creating these, among various other forms of stomping both ordinary and ridiculously superpowered. Mister Smarty Smarts, Entree, and Peri are the usual recipients of such attacks.
  • Strong as They Need to Be: Joe is able to destroy entire cities, cause tornadoes and earthquakes, control the orbit of the Sun and Moon, and even create and destroy black holes, all just by stomping his feet... but only if he's getting A Day in the Limelight. Otherwise he's completely helpless against all but the most incompetent of villains.
  • Ultimate Authority Mayor: Although simply just a mayor, Joe is pretty much the highest authority on Keepaway Island ever since the Doctor was arrested. Considering how strong and violent he can be, no one's got what it takes to restrain his authority anyway.

    Patricia 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/patricia_splicid_4463.PNG

Voiced by: Katie Crown
An intelligent non-mutated platypus who usually feels out of place from all the other inhabitants due to her being the only non-mutant on the island. She can be quite violent when provoked.
  • Badass Adorable: Don't let the fact that she's a cuddly female platypus fool you, she's very capable of kicking ass when mad.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Patricia's generally pretty easygoing, but even Two-Legs Joe is frightened of her when she's in a bad mood.
  • Fish out of Water: Due to be the only non-hybrid on Keepaway Island, Patricia often feels alone in their world. However, it's never explained how she ended up on Keepaway Island in the first place.
  • Only Sane Man: It's really saying something when an animal as freaky as a platypus is the most normal creature on Keepaway Island.
  • Tertiary Sexual Characteristics: She wears a blue bow on her head.
  • Women Are Wiser: She's the most prominent female character in the show, but also the most sensible character.
  • Wrench Wench: A few episodes show that she's pretty good with fixing machines, particularly cars.

    Princess Pony Apehands 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/princess_pony_apehand.png

Voiced by: Kedar Brown
A huge gorilla-pony with the uncanny personality of a very young girl. She does demonstrate her ungodly size and strength quite well, like walking through solid structures like they were made out of toilet paper.
  • All Girls Like Ponies: Her girlish interests include ponies, dolls, playing tea, and the like.
  • And Call Him "George"!: Due to her massive size and strength, as well as childlike personality, Princess has a tendency to accidentally harm those she smothers with affection.
  • Gonky Femme: A hulking brute with the interests of a little girl.
  • Hulk Speak: Speaks like such to emphasize the humorous contrast between her childish demeanour and enormous size and strength.
  • Larynx Dissonance: She has a deep, masculine voice.

    Mister Smarty Smarts 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mister_smarty_smarts.png

Voiced by: Mike Kiss
A larger-than-life dolphin-chimpanzee and self-declared "evil genius" who constantly attempts to take over Keepaway Island from his lair on the island's volcano. Too bad his plans always backfire from either being thwarted by the protagonists or being anything except foolproof.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: Implied several times with Octocat, as shown in the episodes "Octocataclysm", and "Of Masters and Minions".
  • Big Bad Wannabe: Nearly everyone on Keepaway Island is terrified of him, even though he's an Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain whose plans foil themselves as often as not.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: Takes great pride in how much of an evil genius he believes himself to be.
  • Devious Dolphins: While he's technically only half dolphin, he's certainly devious.
  • Ditzy Genius: He's a brilliant engineer and mathematician who's built countless high-tech gadgets and weapons, but can't read, thinks chickens live underwater, and thinks being giant makes you helpless.
  • Harmless Villain: His incompetence ensures that at most, he's only a mild threat to the inhabitants of Keepaway Island.
  • Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: He's not particularly good at being evil or being a genius, but he does his best.
  • Insufferable Genius: While not as much of a genius as he fancies himself as, he is certainly arrogant about his intelligence.
  • It's All About Me: As he declares in one episode, he doesn't want to make Keepaway Island a utopia, but rather he wants it to be a "me-topia".
  • Large Ham: Tends to chew the scenery with his declarations of evilness and genius-ness.
  • Maniac Monkeys: Although really he's only part primate, he's still quite the megalomaniacal evildoer.
  • Never My Fault: He frequently blames Octocat for things even beyond her control (like rain occurring while he was sunbathing) or his own stupid mistakes, but has even blamed science itself for his failures. "Of Masters and Minions" is an excellent demonstration of this.
  • Never Learned to Read: Admits to such in his first appearance, which forces him to take lessons from Octocat.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: He's nowhere near as competent or brilliant of an evil mastermind as he believes himself to be.
  • Villainous Friendship: With Octocat, who seems to be the only mutant he shows even the mildest bit of compassion for.
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: He frequently uses female disguises in his schemes. Peri even compliments him on one of his dresses that were "completely necessary".
    Mister Smarty Smarts (to Octocat): No, this is not just another excuse for me to wear a dress!

    Octocat 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/octocat.png

Voiced by: Katie Crown
A (you guessed it) cat-octopus who accompanies Mister Smarty Smarts with his plans to take over Keepaway Island. She only speaks in meows.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: Several episodes imply there to be such between her and Mister Smarty Smarts.
  • Deadpan Snarker: While we can't understand what she's saying exactly, it's pretty clear from her boss' reactions that she's got a pretty sharp tongue.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: The only people that she and Mister Smarty Smarts truly care about are each other.
  • Hypercompetent Sidekick: Octocat reveals this in the episode "Octocataclysm".
  • Intelligible Unintelligible: She can apparently make some very lengthy statements with just a single meow.
  • Not So Above It All: She's good at finding the flaws in Smarty Smarts' plans, but she also once decided that watermelons were a sufficient substitute for a giant death laser, so yeah.
  • The Straight Man: She's always the one to point out to Mister Smarty Smarts the poorly thought out aspects of his schemes.
  • The Unintelligible: Nearly all of her lines consist of a single meow.
  • Villainous Friendship: With Smarty Smarts, although the nature of their relationship is sometimes implied to be familial or romantic.
  • Women Are Wiser: Not as much as Patricia, but she's clearly far more sensible than her master.

    Fuzzy Snuggums 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fuzzy_snuggums.png

Voiced by: Julie Lemieux
A cute and lovable critter who lives and breathes on the urge to explore the island and visit the outside world. Unfortunately, things never ever, ever go right for him.
  • Butt-Monkey: Pretty much all of his appearances consist of him getting maimed and injured by the other characters or failed expeditions.
  • Cartoon Creature: What exactly he is on an island dominated by Mix-and-Match Critters is never explained. We know he was a creation of the Doctor, but that's it. It was ultimately averted as of 2019 when Simon Racioppa finally confirmed on his Twitter account that according to original scripts, Fuzzy was meant to be part fawn, part baby fur seal and part kitten.
  • The Chew Toy: His purpose on the show is solely to suffer for our amusement.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: It's revealed in one episode that Fuzzy was originally created to be a fighter. However, he was TOO good at his job, and the Doctor rewired his brain for exploration. His original personality resurfaced after Peri and Entree pushed him too far in one episode.
  • Earn Your Happy Ending: Simon Racioppa also confirmed that Fuzzy does make it to where he wants to explore at some point... if being on fire counts when you get there.
  • Failure Is the Only Option: Whenever Fuzzy Snuggums tries to get off the island to explore the rest of the world, you can expect something disastrous to occur to him.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: A little fuzzball of some kind with an adorable voice.

    Compuhorse 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/compuhorse.png

Voiced by: Patrick McKenna
A horse who got merged with computer parts in a freak accident. Thanks to his new-found intelligence and ability to speak via voice programming, he can explain the wild phenomena the other characters encounter.
  • Cyborg: Due to a freak accident involving an exploding computer factory, there is a computer monitor fused to the side of his body.
  • The Smart Guy: The goto guy for exposition on all the weird stuff occurring.
  • Synthetic Voice Actor: His voice is a computerized version of his voice actor's.
  • Third-Person Person: Speaks in such a manner.

    The Doctor 

The mad scientist who created nearly everybody on Keepaway Island. Having been arrested for his crimes against nature years ago, he never appears in the series proper, but his legacy is well preserved by the mutants he left behind.


  • Expy: He's based on the eponymous scientist of The Island of Doctor Moreau.
  • The Ghost: Although his image is virtually everywhere on Keepaway Island, he only appears physically in the show's intro.
  • Mad Scientist: His deranged experiments in genetics and the like are responsible for a lot of what happens in the show.
