The Power Trio

    Mitchell Tanner 

Mitchell Tanner

The new boy at Strange Hill High. Mitchell Tanner is a slacker and a trouble-maker, who's flippant attitude generally makes him more enemies than friends, and more often than not puts him in the crosshairs of Mr. Abercrombie. However, Mitchell's enthusiam, willingness to take short-cuts and loyal friends mean he is often the one who saves the school from certain doom, even if he is the one to endanger it sometimes.

Tropes

    Rebecca "Becky" Butters 

Becky Butters

Mitchell's best friend and foil.

Tropes

  • Foil: To Mitchell. Mitchell is carefree and avoids studying at any cost, but manages to think on his feet and dodge disaster through playing it cool and persisting; conversely Becky studies very hard, and works hard, but collapses under pressure and easily falls victim to whatever comes threat comes the trio's way.
  • Meganekko: Has gigantic spectacles.
  • Soapbox Sadie: Downplayed, but when she finds an issue or an opportunity to help out in the community, expect her to go on and on and one about it.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Has Hot Pink hair.

    Templeton 

Templeton

Mitchell's other friend. Incredibly bizarre, to say the least.

Tropes

  • Butt-Monkey: He's a magnet for "Temp-Events" that normal involve him being hit by some kind of projectile.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: There's a reason Abercrombie calls him "Weird Boy".
    • The Cloudcuckoolander Was Right: It's not very often, but sometimes Templeton is right, or at the very least more on the ball than usual. Even so, it's more of a case of "A Broken Clock being right twice a day" than any moment of genuine clarity.
  • Only One Name: Templeton's last name is never given.

The Staff

    Headmaster Abercrombie 

Mr. Abercrombie

Tropes

    Mr. Balding 

Mr. Bartelby Balding

The impossibly ancient History Teacher renowned for his utter lack of "pizzazal".

Tropes

  • Been There, Shaped History: Numerous portraits show him at various points in ancient history
  • Big Good: In a way, he's the only adult on the show who is perfectly willing to help the kids, bares no ill-will towards Mitchell, and is no intentional hinderance or danger to the kids.
  • Really 700 Years Old: He's either immortal or really really really old.
