Wayne Cramp

Voiced by: Tom Kenny

  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Has blue skin, in contrast to his normal-skinned brother.
  • Anti-Hero: One of the main characters but is far from being a good guy.
  • Bald of Awesome/Bald of Evil: Wayne isn't completely bald (he has strains of hair on his head) but definitely less hair than his twin Lucien. However, he is very good at constructing things out of junk and his main hobby is bullying/torturing Lucien and other kids.
  • Berserk Button: Wayne has a lot but the ones that set him off the most is touching his junk and Lucien. Hell, he even has a Lucien picture with a cross mark on his door.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Even has a trademark "good boy voice" around his parents.
  • The Bully: Whoo boy is he ever. Partially anyone is a target of Wayne's bullying ESPECIALLY Lucien.
  • Advertisement:
  • Catchphrase: Wayne often says "Aces!" whenever something excites him and "Get bent!" toward others that annoys him.
  • Enfante Terrible/Kids Are Cruel: As stated above, Wayne's main hobby is bullying and torturing other children but Lucien especially.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: With Lucien
  • Gadgeteer Genius: The only thing Wayne is good at besides bullying people (mainly Lucien) is building stuff out of junk.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Once in a while, he will show some decency. He is also pretty good friends with Dirty Joe who is pretty much the only person Wayne treats well.
  • Laughably Evil: Wayne may be a bully but some of the stuff he does to others is downright hilarious.
  • Lovable Rogue: During his better moments. Otherwise the "lovable" part varies.
  • The Nicknamer: He often gives insulting nicknames toward others he doesn't like. He has a LOT for Lucien but is partially fond of calling him "Girl Pants."
  • The Pig Pen: Adores garbage, to his parents' ire.
  • Sweet Tooth/Trademark Favorite Food: Wayne LOVES sugar-related food and drinks and will only eat things loaded with sugar. In fact, if Wayne doesn't eat any sugar for awhile, he will get weak and start speaking gibberish.
  • Villain Protagonist: He's pretty much the secondary main protagonist behind Lucien but he is far from being a good guy.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Wayne is terrified by most creatures of the swamp but frogs are the creatures that frighten him the most.

Dorothy Cramp

Mr. Neville Cramp

  • A Day in the Limelight: Any episode that deals with the rodeo or has a focus on it, expect Neville to be the main focus.
  • Anti-Hero
  • Bumbling Dad
  • Butt-Monkey: Mr. Cramp is arguably the biggest one in the show as he is often taking abuse from everyone that knows him. This includes his wife, his sons (especially Wayne), his boss, and even his boss' daughter!
  • Henpecked Husband
  • Middle Name Basis: Not really but in the episode "Home on the Range," Mr. Cramp revealed his middle name is Neville thinking that his boss, Mr. Winkle, was trying to refer to him by that name.
  • Nice Guy/Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Out of the Cramp family members, Neville is definitely the nicest. However, there are times he has sided with Wayne and will often neglect Lucien.
  • Parental Favoritism: It's made pretty clear in a bunch of episodes that Mr. Cramp prefers Wayne over Lucien as Mr. Cramp will commonly go along with Wayne's plans or even pick up some of his habits (like being obsessed over a video game in one episode).
  • Wacky Parent, Serious Child: With Lucien.

Wendy Winkle

Tony Parsons

Seth Parsons

Mari Phelps

Walter Winkle

Hilary Hissy

Mr. Pretty

Dirty Joe

  • A Day in the Limelight: The episode, "Homeless Joe", features Dirty Joe's largest role in an episode to date.
  • Cool Old Guy: Joe isn't that old but he's definitely one of the oldest characters in the series and he is definitely a pretty nice guy. When he temporary lived with the Cramps, he didn't want to help himself to their food and instead asked Wayne to get something for him. He was also willing to take a bath since he doesn't mind trying anything new. Also, he is one of few people that treat Wayne well and Wayne returns the favor.
  • The Faceless: Joe's face is never seen in the series. However, we do mostly seen his lower body especially in the episode "Homeless Joe."
  • Friend to All Living Things: A bit subverted here. Thanks to Dirty Joe's disposition, animals all alike are attracted to him by the way he smells. However, Joe himself doesn't appear to like animals considering he swatted away a dog that was sniffing him and fled as soon a heard of animals was going after him.
  • Only Friend: Joe himself has a lot of friends but Joe is the only person that Wayne treats well at every occasion.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Dirty Joe's real name is never revealed and only goes by that name for the reason below.
  • The Pig Pen: There IS a reason why he is called "Dirty Joe." Especially the fact he lives in the middle of a junkyard.

Brick

  • Berserk Button: Brick appears to have a lot but he really seemed to got upset when Wayne called him a "bully."
  • Big Eater: Brick can really get food down really quick as shown during dinner time with the Cramps. He also mentions to Lucien that he and his dad used to eat nothing but five pound steaks.
  • The Bully: Worse then Wayne.
  • Charles Atlas Superpower: Brick is arguably the strongest character seen in the show (besides his older sister Lily and possibly his mother). The fact that the area shakes whenever he walks and that he can easily break tables just by pounding them is a testament to this.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: It really looked like Brick was going to hurt Wayne just for accidentally stepping on his shoelace.
  • Disappeared Dad: Brick mentions his dad a lot in the past tense either indicating his dad is away or is dead. Turns out later in the episode his dad is alive and well but is a total wimp. However, turns out that wasn't his dad but his stepdad and his real one is off building a skyscraper.
  • Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: He doesn't take Lucien implying that his Mom pushes him around well.
  • Evil Feels Good: After destroying Wayne and the other kids in a game of dodgeball, he laments on how he wishes his dad could see him now clearly enjoying bullying other kids.
  • Fastball Special: At one point during a game of dodgeball, he uses Wayne as the ball to throw at the kids.
  • Freudian Excuse Is No Excuse: Lucien invokes this on him at the episode by telling him that just because his Mom pushes him about doesn't give him an excuse to push other people around.
  • Hypocritical Humor: As stated above, one of Brick's biggest berserk buttons is being called a "bully." However, considering he loves to push Wayne around physically abuse him and other kids, it's very clear he's a bully especially since he enjoys what he does.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: Brick seemed really touched that Wayne wanted to be his friend. However, this most likely meant that Brick could find someone to bully on a daily basis which he does.
  • Jerkass: To a point where even Wendy was disgusted by his behavior and attempts to prompt the other kids into attacking him.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Brick is terrified of women that are larger than him. This is because of his Big Sister Bully Lily.

Rodeo Rita

  • Broken Ace: To Mr. Cramp after seeing her as a fraud for not being a true cowgirl.
  • Jerk Ass: Oh most definitely so. Don't let that nice girl act on the t.v. and radio fool you.
  • Nice Character, Mean Actor: Rodeo Rita is a very nice person when she plays the role in front of kids. However, when she is not, she's one of the biggest jerks of the show.

Cougar Ron

  • Battlecry: Cougar Ron, before fighting an animal, lets out a roar that is the sound of a cougar.
  • Black Comedy Animal Cruelty: Cougar Ron makes a living by beating the tar out of animals. However, this is later subverted as the animals aren't even real and are computer generated.
  • Curbstomp Battle: Almost every animal that Cougar Ron is shown facing gets beaten pretty easily by him with only the Colossal Swamp Squid giving him some trouble. Subverted as the animals aren't even real.
  • Expy: Ron is definitely an expy of Steve Irwin, The Crocodile Hunter.
  • Jerk Ass: Of course. Cougar Ron took great pleasure in tormenting and humiliating Wayne who was obviously afraid of the swamp.
  • Nice Character, Mean Actor: This is a bit complicated. Cougar Ron has no problem assaulting (fake) animals but Wayne says he only does it to animals that are "really asking for it." The fact he doesn't actually hurt real animals and has a bunch of fans does fit into the "nice character" part. The "Mean Actor" part comes from how he treated Wayne during the episode.
  • The Reveal: That Cougar Ron doesn't fight real animals and that they are computer generated.
  • Show Within a Show: Cougar Ron is the host and star of his own show "Cougar Ron's Wild Wild Animal Show."
