The Crumpet Family

    Granny Isadora (Grand-Ma Isadora) 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/crumpets_granny.png
Voiced by: Michèle Garcia (French), Mary O'Brady (English)
The mother of Pa and Hurry, and matriarch of the Crumpet family. Despite her age, she's very determined to get money for her personal benefit, whether or not it's through gambling, poker, or selling items online in bad faith. She has a special friendship with Li'l One. In season 3 at least, she's absent in the show.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: Her hair is black in the Petite Pousse book but gray in the show.
  • Adaptation Name Change: She's known as Grande-Mamie in the Petite Pousse book.
  • Anti-Hero: She's generally aligned with the Crumpets, but can be greedy at the expense of others.
  • Big "YES!": Says a big yay once all her former boyfriends on the web have forgiven her in "Granny's Twin Sister".
  • Birthday Episode: "Puppy Love" (at the first scene)
  • Blatant Lies: Likes to make lies. For instance, when she acts like a homeless beggar in "The Terrible Teens", she tells pedestrians that her husbands abandoned her and she has no family. It backfires in bad timing as the teenage-minded Pa cries to Granny as his mother, so the passers-by retrieve their money back.
  • Buried Alive: In "A Grave Affair", T-Bone's theft of Granny's inheritance letter during her "death" has led the family to bury her with her bedroom rather than donating her to science at her will. The potion she drank placed her to a state of Faux Death instead of an actual death. So she wakes up in her dark, underground bedroom and becomes disappointed at not being in the Bahamas or a laboratory. She gets partly buried by a pile of dirt T-Bone leaves behind during one of her escape attempts.
  • Chainsaw Good: She frequently uses a chainsaw. She even got kicked out of a horror movie production featuring these for doing a "teensy weensy chainsaw accident", according to "Hairifying".
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: She seems to be missing from the Teen Crumpets episodes.
  • Collector of the Strange: Her bedroom stores cigarette-like chocolates which are implied to be very old, and if the following items are all hers, a framed skeleton and a blonde wig in the attic.
  • Consummate Liar: Granny sometimes lies, like in "Save Granny" when she tells Ms. McBrisk that she cries because Pa injured her, not saying that he confiscated her laptop. She's also the one who decides to falsify the televised road trip with Caprice in "Road Stories".
  • Cool Bike: Rides a trike motorcycle at the end of "Murder Everywhere" in honor of her late hippie boyfriend.
  • Cool Old Lady: Granny is capable of riding motorbikes and wielding chainsaws to name a few. Special mention goes to her tech savviness and enjoyment of computer games.
  • Cool Shades: Wears shades when she's a video director in "Going Viral".
  • Drives Like Crazy: Granny is a reckless driver using the family's van and three-wheeled truck. She speeds, steers sharply at a fast speed, drives through the woods, outspeeds the police, and almost went to a head-on collision with Ma (and doesn't identify her) while they're both driving.
  • Earn Your Happy Ending: In "Sound The Alarm", she, Li'l One, and T-Bone rob their neighbor's gold coins, and both humans sing happily at the final shot.
  • Elder Abuse: Near the end of "Going Viral", after showing Caprice's memoriam film in spite that she's still alive, Granny gets choked by Ma and Pa for making the false statement.
    • In "Shake It Up", Triceps throws her at a great distance twice.
  • Everyone Loves Blondes: She used to be an attractive blonde woman who had multiple men in love with her.
  • Eyes Always Shut: Her eyes rarely open. When she looks at the money she receives from the auction in "Murder Everywhere", her eyes become similar to the usual eye design of the show.
  • Fake Boobs: She wears watermelon ones while her pregnancy is faked in "Lil Wrinkly One".
  • Faux Death: In "A Grave Affair", she desires her inheritance to pass to Pa and have her body donated to science (or according to the episode's French description, she wants to make a scam on life insurance and leave the household), so she drinks a potion made from his greenhouse plants that's supposed to end her life. The family believe she died and bury her and her bedroom as if she actually did. She ends up waking up from the potion's effects and finds herself trapped in her underground bedroom.
  • Formerly Fit: Unlike her younger self, she is quite fat. The pictures in her bedroom proved this.
  • The Gambling Addict: Granny becomes one in "Addicted" to her computer poker game so she can win a Route 66 motorcycle trip. After she wins, Pa offers to pay for the trip in the condition that she gives up gambling, as well as giving her his anti-addiction gas solution. She doesn't inhale the solution and places it for auction, and asks her son to make more for her nefarious greed.
  • Gold Tooth: When she discovers Ma's replicating machine in "Taxidermama", she desires cloning a gold tooth.
  • Gasshole: She farts in occasion, notably in "Lil Wrinkly One".
  • Good Angel, Bad Angel: These show in "Puppy Love".
  • Greed: Her intentions to get money would only be her gain, except for inheritance.
  • Hairy Girl: In "Hairifying", there's a picture of her with hairy armpits and limbs dating back when she got picked up by a movie director for having these armpits, and went to act for the Werezombies and Chainsaws movie.
  • In-Series Nickname: Her twin sister calls her "Isaducky" in "Granny's Twin Sister". "A Grave Affair" affirms that her real name is Isadora.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Although arrogant and greedy, and can be rude to her family, she's very trusting of her youngest grandchild Lil-One, and occasionally to other grandchildren.
  • Long-Lived: Granny is 112 years old.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: After Granny accidentally threw her laptop to Pa in "Save Granny", she makes a powerful shout over it.
  • Magic Plastic Surgery: In "Booty for Beauty", Granny receives a dramatic transformation to resemble Ms. McBrisk. But when her rich son discovers that the latter is a criminal, he gets his mother retransformed to an attractive blonde, big chested woman like she used to be. She initially fails to utter even a single word, it's revealed that her hair and dress are stitched and becomes loose, and her body is completely deflated as she finally speaks.
  • Mistaken for Pregnant: Occurs in the episode "Lil' Wrinkly One", where she becomes bloated after eating cigarette-like cocoa-patches and everyone in the family assumes she is pregnant.
  • Money Song: She sings and dances to a brief song about money in "Puppy Love".
  • Monochromatic Eyes: When her eyes open they look completely white. In "Belief Relief", tiny pupils can be seen up close.
  • Never Mess with Granny: She's not afraid of halting perils and disturbances such as a crocodile, an octosquito monster, anyone in the attic above her bedroom...
  • Ocular Gushers: After Pa took her laptop in "Save Granny", she floods the house with tears.
  • The Oldest Profession: She considers becoming an escort to earn money in "Ransoming Dad".
  • Playing Sick: In "Gambling Gables", after Cordless collides his scooter against her on the bridge and his family looks at the aftermath, she instantly stands and scolds her rich son for assuming her fragility. But she comes up with the brilliant plan to cry that her neck is broken and threatens to sue him, leading to the Crumpets' home being reclaimed by the family.
  • Professional Killer: Granny says she used to be a hitman while thinking of becoming one again for money in "Ransoming Dad".
  • Reused Character Design: In season 3, her design from the pictures in "Murder Everywhere" was reused for Marylin's mother in the flashback. This also occurred to her main character design for an internet fortune teller from the season 4 episode "La capuche mortelle".
  • Restraining Bolt: Her punishment for reckless driving in "Drive Away" is having to wear a cuffed bracelet that enforces her six month driving ban. She keeps failing to remove or break it.
  • Shake Someone, Objects Fall: In "Ransoming Dad", when Ma holds and shakes Granny upside-down, the poker cruise pass drops from Granny.
  • Significant Birth Date: She's born on April 1, 1901.
  • Snake Oil Salesman: She touts numerous benefits of Pa's anti-addiction gas and claims it's Amazonian air when she places it for sale on the internet in "Addicted". At least it temporarily works on Ms. McBrisk's allergies.
  • Sound-Effect Bleep: In "Shake It Up", after Li'l One whispers to Granny, she decides to demonstrate her newly diagnosed condition "foulmouthitis" by hurling insults to Ma and Pa. She uses expletives twice, which get censored by the Scene Transition heads imitating a "BEEP".
  • Stomach of Holding: Her ultrasound in "Lil Wrinkly One" reveals that she has a teddy bear rather than a fetus the other Crumpets expect, although this doesn't dash their hopes.
  • Straw Feminist: In "Save Granny", she claims to have won the card game with Cassandra (a drawing of a king of diamonds and a queen of hearts) because "in real life, the queen is always stronger than the king".
  • The South Paw: Writes with her left hand in "Granny's Twin Sister" and "Amnesia".
  • Vague Age: Averted, as she's 112.
  • Villain Protagonist: In a couple of episodes she is a villainous protagonist, like in "Ransoming Dad" when she and Lil-One hide Pa from the rest of the family, in "Road Stories" when she and Caprice cheat the world road trip game show and kidnap Ms. McBrisk, and in "Addiction" when her greed and accumulation of Pa's greenhouse gas remedy creates a drug addiction crisis to her grandchildren and Ms. McBrisk.
  • We Used to Be Friends: Granny had been a partner of the criminal Pong long before the events of the show. When Pong was attracted to another woman, Granny stole the Kun Yun Yun diamond from him. Pong would return and terrorize the Crumpets to demand them to return the diamond.
  • Wind-Up Key: She uses a big one as a walking stick, and sometimes it's worn on her back. In "Gambled Gables", she twists it so she can dash up to a road bridge. In "Pong! The Menace!", it unlocks access to the house's security room.
  • You No Take Candle: In "The Terrible Teens", she speaks broken English to pose as a foreign beggar to the passers-by.
    Granny: Me leave my family, much, much travel, cross ocean and camel. Life much hard.

    Ma 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/crumpets_ma.png
Voiced by: Emmanuelle Hamet (French), Melissa Chambers (English)
The wife of Pa and the mother of the Crumpet children. She invents and builds machines, many which wind up Gone Horribly Wrong.
  • Abusive Parent: She maltreats L'il One in "Sticks Stink" by crushing him with a huge elephant plush, and when she thinks he's a trouble-making King, gives him a ride in the outdoor clothing wheel at rapid cycles. In "Family Secrets", she considers the grounding of Ditzy's head "very minor" and leaves her off while looking for Pa. (This example isn't supposed to be funny this time.) In "Super Pfff", she forces the twins to stop T-Bone spinning tornado (which the twins caused) by dropping them to the twister.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Pa calls her "Crumpeta", "Crumpetita" and "Crumpet Bunny", among others.
  • Agent Scully: Ma can be a skeptic to religious and some too-good-to-be-true facts because of her proficiency in technology and science.
  • BFG: Builds one in "Cheep Shot" for an automated anti-bird defense system for the greenhouse.
  • Birthday Episode: "CrumStep" and "Puppy Love" (at the last scene)
  • Buffy Speak: In "Addicted", she tells her jealous children that they need "dedication-and-stick-to-itness" to cure their own addictions.
  • Bungling Inventor: Numerous inventions she made are presumably successful ones. The plot-central ones are inclined to fail.
  • Cessation of Existence: It is revealed in "Belief Relief" that she and Lil' One believe that there is no life after death.
  • Clown Car Base: Ma's dress has a "tummy hatch" which opens with a door, and it functions like a marsupial pouch or baby carrier. L'il-One likes to stay there, but the massively-sized Pfff does too to L'il-One's annoyance. It malfunctions in "Croco-Deal".
  • Demoted to Extra: In season 3, like most other adults, she lost focus in the show except for supporting roles.
  • Evil Laugh: Does one while starting up her claw machine vehicle in "Pity The Prize". Apparently, she seems evil in this episode because Pa wants the Weather Girl to aid his plants instead of relying on Ma's new machine. His friendship with the fake Weather Girl (Cassandra in disguise) fed Ma up.
  • Exhausted Eye Bags: Ma has these when Pa complains to her of the birds attacking his garden overnight and when she stays up due to Pa's disappearance in "Cheep Shot".
  • Happily Married: She and Pa are happy together and frequently speak of how strong their love is. Some season two episodes however include a number of conflicts between the two, especially when Pa annoys her for not experiencing the inventions as she wants. "Mum's Double" reveals that it's their 1097th Tuesday of their marriage, which means it recently entered its 21st year.
  • Heroic BSoD: She gets an eye-blanking mental breakdown whenever there's a serious disruption with her home or family, just like her husband.
    • In "Taxidermama", she develops one gradually because her new replicator machine isn't working.
  • Mama Bear: She ferociously defends her son King from returning to the custody of their neighbor in "Amnesia", resulting in a Lover Tug-of-War in the process.
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: Her interests have more in STEM fields and she is combative compared with her husband. She even holds him in the 2011 pilot and "Ghosts In The Attic". They swap gender roles temporarily in "Man Up!".
  • Mind-Control Eyes: When starting to get hypnotized by Ms. McBrisk in "Croco-Deal", Ma's eyes are white with black spirals before having her eyes shut. After that, they're Blank White Eyes.
  • Mother Nature, Father Science: Inverted; it's demonstrated in "Belief Relief", where Pa is more focused on nature and spirituality while Ma concentrates on science. This returns in "Prehistoric Crumpets" as she desires her family to not stick to a primitive lifestyle in the aftermath of the meteor crash.
  • Parental Neglect: In "Family Secrets", when Ma is looking for Pa, Ditzy approaches her because her head is grounded. Ma however calls it "very minor" and wonders off for Pa. Also justified in that Pa is primarily assigned to rear the children.
  • Petite Pride: After Caprice's fruit Fake Boobs come off her torn shirt and expose her chest in "Crumpity Pity", Ma (who is not flat chested) assumes her daughter is jealous and recommends not to make it an issue. Caprice, however, wore the fruits to hide a delivery to the poor McBrisks from her family.
    Ma: Oh Caprice sweetie, it's no big deal. No need to feel ashamed of being sleek. You know, we Crumpetas are aerodynamic. That's how it is!
  • Robot Me: She builds a robot copy of her in "Mum's Double" which does worse in substituting her than good.
  • Superstrength: In "Pong! The Menace!", she's able to pull her fallen vehicular robot on the ground.
  • The Southpaw: When she writes in "Taxidermama", she uses her left hand, although her right hand is used in "Belief Relief".
  • Twitchy Eye: Subverted in "Going Viral" when she smiles once while showing off a twitchy eye.
  • Ugly Guy, Hot Wife: She is slim and attractive in contrast with her husband's overweightness.
  • Unmoving Plaid: Sometimes her dress has an Unmoving Plaid effect.
  • Unnamed Parent: She is not given a first name. She is addressed as "Mother Crumpet" in "My Family's Full Of Losers".
  • Your Cheating Heart: In "Man Up!", Pa hears his wife admiring a masculine chainsaw-wielding man from a magazine, and he would discover the magazine. It doesn't help for him that Ma gets to visit a hardware fair and "indulged" herself.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Ma is scared of reptiles, as stated in "Croco-Deal".
    Pa 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/crumpets_pa.png
Voiced by: Tom Novembre (French), Marc Thompson (English)
The husband of Ma, son of Granny, and father of the Crumpet children. He enjoys gardening in his greenhouse, and is a singer and the conductor for his children's choir.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Ma calls him "Crumpeto".
  • Amusing Injuries: In "CrumStep", he gets several injuries and doesn't heal until the ending.
  • Badass Moustache: His big whiskers can give the impression of one.
  • Big "NO!": He says "No!" in slow motion after he slipped on oil and threw the cooking oil barrel as part of the twins' elaborate prank in "Supernawak".
  • Cardboard Pal: Ma blows an inflatable Pa to make up for his unusual absence in "Family Secrets".
  • Caring Gardener: He has a greenhouse with all sorts of plants.
  • Carpet of Virility: His body hair is an envious feature to Li'l One. Once the latter sees it, his quest for his own body hair becomes the subplot for "Amnesia".
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: He is an optimistic gardener who likes incorporating plant words in his speeches. He is obsessed with nature and likes living in a more natural lifestyle (no video games, artificial chemicals, or even a tent during a trip to the woods), which is sometimes against the will of his family.
  • Demoted to Extra: Averted in season 3. While the other adults either appear less frequently or become absent, Pa maintained several important roles in some episodes.
  • Disappeared Dad: Pa is hidden by Granny and Li'l One in "Ransoming Dad", although they leave him Hidden in Plain Sight under a rug during his disappearance.
    • Also, Pa's father is never mentioned or seen, at least in seasons one-three.
  • Discovering Your Own Dead Body: In "Inside Li'l One's Brain", Pa finds a wardrobe in his son's brain. He opens it and finds a dead copy of his body. After discovering that getting sucked to the "pee-pee gland" pipe leads him to a chamber dedicated to Ma, he flies and returns to the dead body and announces that he is dead, and gives it the device that lets the wearer return out of the brain. The living Pa declares he will "stay" with Ma in the brain, and the dead body would take his place outside the brain.
  • Get a Hold of Yourself, Man!: When he gets a Heroic BSoD after seeing his home radically transformed by his brother and slaps Triceps and Ma in "Gambled Gables", Triceps has to put him to the ground.
  • Gone Swimming, Clothes Stolen: In "L'ADN à Pa", while Pa showers and bathes outside in a barrel, the twins secretly steal his clothes. Once he finds his clothes missing, the twins on the treetops taunt him by moving away his boots and underwear on strings like a marionette, and Pa has to hop in his barrel. When the clothes are above him, he tries to reach them but he falls and emerges naked.
  • Gratuitous Spanish: He sings in Spanish during his serenade to Ma in "Croco-Deal".
  • Happily Married: He and Ma are happy together. It is uncommon for them to go an episode without at least one instance of the couple saying how much they love each other. Some season two episodes however increasingly include conflicts with the two, especially when Pa doesn't conform with Ma's inventions. "Mum's Double" reveals that it's set in their 1097th Tuesday of their marriage.
  • Heroic BSoD: He gets an eye-blanking mental breakdown when his house or family is seriously disrupted, just like his wife. In "Gambled Gables", he develops insanity during the family's vacancy from the house.
  • Hidden Depths: In the opening episode of season 3, he sings Damon Grobain's song inside the abandoned van, and proved Pfff wrong with a short rock performance, confirming the fact he was Damon Grobain the rockstar.
    • In "Va te catcher vilain !", he was revealed to be a former professional wrestler who wore the same two outfits from "Croco-Deal". A famous wrestler, in fact.
  • Lights Off, Somebody Dies: Lil One "kills" Pa (who pretends to an evil count) in the brief darkness when the former violates the rules of the party game in "Murder Everywhere".
  • Look Both Ways: In "CrumStep", after Pa is hypnotized by Li'l-One and Granny in their new concert, he walks outside to the road and the car driven by his brother Hurry hits him at the beginning and ending of their conversation.
  • Lotus Position: In response to hearing to the presumably deceased Granny shouting in "A Grave Affair", Pa begins to meditate in order to seek contact with her spirit.
  • Made of Iron: In "Murder Everywhere", Li'l-One immediately attacks him during the brief darkness with a plethora of objects such as a sword, a spear, and an arrow. After his son's escape, Pa stands up from his faint as if he's unharmed, notes that his evil count character is "dead", and retains the objects that stabbed his body (including the spear penetration). Shortly after, Granny tries to have her son actually dead by impaling him with the chainsaw. It also seems he receives tremendous pain, but he's later seen just fine with no sign of any chainsaw attack!
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: He gardens and he is a peaceful man, and his wife builds machinery and can get hot blooded. He is even held by her in the 2011 pilot and "Ghosts In The Attic". They swap these gender roles temporarily in "Man Up!" as he exercises, enjoy watching/reading sports, quit doing chores, and sets responsibility of the greenhouse between him and Ma.
  • Mother Nature, Father Science: Inverted. It's demonstrated in "Belief Relief", where Pa Crumpet tends to his garden and looks for spiritual solutions in getting his leeks to grow, while Ma Crumpet focuses on scientific methods. This repeats in "Prehistoric Crumpets" as in the aftermath of the meteor crash he prefers to live and dress like a caveman in the woods.
  • Nice Hat: He wears a top hat.
  • The Nicknamer: Aside from his affectionate nicknames to Ma, he sometimes nickname family members with plant names.
  • Ocular Gushers: Spectacularly cries in the ending of "Dried Water" that he floods the globe.
  • Pacifist: He doesn't welcome violence due to his belief that it "never solves anything", as raised during the fight between Ma and her robot clone in "Mum's Double". In "My Family's Full Of Losers", despite building anger he refuses to slap Li'l-One, who already slapped him.
    • He breaks his pacifism very reluctantly when has to sacrifice Pfff's worm by blowing it through a straw into the fake clay diamond so it can resemble the real diamond and be given to Pong in "Pong! The Menace!". The worm survived and would eat the fake diamond from inside.
    • He also violates pacifism when he chokes his mother along with Ma in "Going Viral".
  • Painful Body Waxing: In "Amnesia", he ironically does this, likely in response to learning of Li'l-One not needing to show body hair to get Ma's love.
  • The Password Is Always "Swordfish": In "A Grave Affair", Granny mentions that the password to her son's bank account is "Crumpeta".
  • Robot Me: Ma's own robot clone in "Mum's Double" creates a robot copy of Pa, which would scare the real Pa. Robot Pa would become the "hero" upon switching off the rogue robot Ma in order to rescue Ma and the children, but it displays glowing red eyes at the end.
  • Serenade Your Lover: Near the climax of "Croco-Deal", he serenades Ma with a Spanish song from below their balcony.
  • Talking to Plants: He talks to his greenhouse plants and gives them names.
  • That Russian Squat Dance: Does this during Pfff's song in "Gambled Gables".
  • Ugly Guy, Hot Wife: He is very overweight and unattractive unlike his wife.
  • Unnamed Parent: Inverted. His real name is Anodin in the French version.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: In "Inside Li'l One's Brain", it's revealed he has a fear of pigs which Granny keeps a secret.
  • Your Cheating Heart: In "Family Secrets", a letter packed in a buried music box is interpreted to be proof he's in love with a mistress, or Ms. McBrisk with visual evidence that he's seen visiting her house. Subverted, as he's helping to pick a new color scheme for the house for a colorblind man McBrisk met, and the music box and letter belongs to Granny. But the reality wasn't uncovered before Ma thought she saw the truth, threw a suitcase and barricaded him out their house's grounds.
    Li'l One (P'tit Der) 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/crumpets_lil_one.png
Voiced by: Théo Benhamour, Victor Biavan, and Wandrille Devisme (French), Joseph Pollock (English)
The youngest child in the Crumpet family and the show's main character until the Teen Crumpets episodes. He wishes to get Ma's love and eliminate everyone else vying that. He has a special friendship with Granny.
  • A Mind Is a Terrible Thing to Read: In "Inside Li'l One's Brain", when Ma visits his brain with one of her machines, she immediately aborts her trip and returns, being shocked that his mind's malformations are no joke.
  • Adaptation Name Change: In French from "Petit Dernier" in the books.

  • Meaningful Name: He's the "little one" of the Crumpet family.
  • Mistaken for Gay: In "Amnesia", Grownboy is mentioned to have suggested Li'l One to come out the closet due to the latter's fascination with chest hair, but Li'l One wants to grow body hair to impress their mother.

  • Rockers Smash Guitars: In "Li'l One All Alone", he plays a guitar (maybe from Pfff) and smashes it on the dinner table.
  • Straw Misogynist: When he argues for the ban of girls from the horror movie night in "Hairifying" (and wants himself treated for being the "brave and courageous" and the girls as "the chicks"), Caprice complains of discrimination and sexism.

  • Villain Protagonist: Can be one in the episodes where he finds an opportunity to get rid of Pa and/or the siblings, like the first episode "Ransoming Dad".

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/crumpets_caprice.png
Voiced by: Rebecca Benhamour (French), Kate Bristol (English)
The fashionable goth teen daughter. Wishing to establish her clothing line, she is bipolar and is either a cheerful girl or a ruthless, irritable one who is hostile against other people or herself. In Teen Crumpets, while she is still pretty flawed, she goes on to more heroic roles. She's in love with the fellow goth Marylin. Her best friend is her neighbor Cassandra.
  • Action Girl: In "Disassister", she displays shades of this when she's going to rescue Grownboy's animals, especially when she jumps to the cage.
  • Ambiguously Bi: In "Ghost In The Attic", Caprice is believed to be in love with a girl by the eavesdropping twins and L'il-One because her crush's name is Marylin. However, when she almost gives up attracting Marylin in one morning, she concludes with Granny that no one needs men and doesn't deny Li'l One's lesbian claim. Also in "Ice Lust", a dancing Ms. McBrisk leaves Cassandra to be held by Caprice, with both girls looking at each other quietly, not to mention other Les Yay moments in other episodes.
  • Anti-Role Model: Lampshaded in "Road Stories" when Ms. McBrisk warns her daughter against being like her, saying she's "not exactly the best role model".

One exception, she can tolerate Marylin's pet mouse as long it doesn't want to kiss her.
    • In "Road Stories", she kicks a penguin in the van, and just after delivering a message on loving animals in the climax, she gets hugged by a pink penguin and ironically throws it to the van.

  • Cucumber Facial: In "Booty for Beauty", Li'l One finds her wearing a cucumber facial and he screams.
  • Curse Cut Short: This happens in "Croco-Deal" (almost saying "damn" until getting interrupted by Ma) and "Gentlemanly Modified Organism" (her vulgar insult to Pfff getting cut by the Idiosyncratic Wipe heads mimicking a Sound-Effect Bleep).
  • Damsel in Distress: In "Insectator", the twins punish Caprice for stopping the kids' video game usage by strapping her on a skateboard inside a greenhouse.

When Pfff, who is sleepwalking after he played video game, sees Caprice, she is viewed as a princess.

  • Driven to Suicide: In "Going Viral", Caprice's depression due to rejection from Granny's viral videos and her siblings' rebukes lead her to attempt different (silly) forms of suicide. She survives by the end and enjoys fan popularity from the suicide attempt videos Pfff taped, to the point she gets rescued by a fan blimp in her final attempt, although Granny would also finish and show a eulogy film to the other children as if Caprice is dead, which briefly devastates Caprice again or she's just secretly acting.

  • Dying Declaration of Love: In "Rat de marée", while she and Marylin are stranded in the Crumpets' elevator during the house's flooding, she confesses her crush on him.

Caprice, who is a big fan of the duo, rescues him but also explains to him that they've been in a romantic relationship. Hoping to keep him as her "ideal boyfriend", she also hides him in her bedroom, altered his clothes and hair to match her own colors, and gives him a different name.

  • Our Werewolves Are Different: When it's her turn to be treated in Ma's wax removal machine in "Hairifying", the twins shut down power in the house, leaving herself stuck inside the malfunctioning machine. Once Ma returns the electricity, the interior of the machine explodes and Caprice walks out with longer body hair, and would see her "gorilla" self by mirror. While panicking to her room, she gives a silhouette of what appears to be a werewolf running in a hallway that scares Ohoh.

  • Saw "Star Wars" 27 Times: According to "Cinématurité", she had seen The Horror Show movie at least two hundred times.

  • The Unintelligible: In "Dans tes dents", because she thinks her new dental braces are horrible, Caprice becomes afraid of opening her mouth to everyone else. She leaves her mouth shut due to the twins trying to snap a picture of her mouth and her fear of Marylin looking at her mouth. She makes one last conversation in her bedroom with Cassandra before she only speaks with her mouth shut during the next days.
  • Vague Age: Averted. The French description of "Murder Everywhere" reveals that she turns 15 in that episode.

    Uncle Hurry: You happy now sweetie?
    Aunt Harried: Yes. Actually, I have one hesitation. Isn't she a bit too plump to, you know, pass for my daughter?
  • Young Entrepreneur: In "Odeurs corp", prompted by the lack of money needed for online shopping, she and Cassie sell body odor-eliminating pills that were invented with Cordless' assistance in a bid to resolve an apparent global crisis of unhygienic people. When her friends are worried of human body odors risking extinction due to the product, as well as Cassie feeling bad for Marylin and Pfff being stuck with undesirable odors after they consumed experimental pills, Caprice resists their opposition. Cordless secretly creates an antidote that cures the pill's effects on himself, Marylin and Pfff. The three teen boys halt Caprice's shipment by farting at her on the house's elevator.

He and Cassandra flee outside, and as the latter tries to return him to the trials by trying to kiss him, he bumps her (probably by accident) and she falls to the ground while he can point at the Flying Saucer in the sky.

  • All Amazons Want Hercules: Inverted in "Ice Lust" when she falls in love with the sedentary Cordless.

    Ditzy (Tetenlair) 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/crumpets_ditzy.png
Voiced by: Rosalie Hamet (French), Erica Schroeder (English)
A curious girl with profound interest in beliefs and philosophy. Her trademark feature is her removable balloon head.
  • Adorably Precocious Child: Downplayed. She may be one of the show's most adorable characters, is somewhat familiar with religious and supernatural ideas, and is brave to visit the attic. But she makes a couple of poor statements, in addition to clumsy errors which she is capable of acknowledging.
  • Balloonacy: Her head is capable of lifting her body when held by the string in some situations.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Her primitive-looking clothing in "Prehistoric Crumpets".
  • Be the Ball: In "Nom de code", at one instance when a telephone rings, Bother, Blister and Li'l One rush toward it and knock down Ditzy on their way. Caprice, who is racing against her younger siblings, throws Ditzy's head like bowling ball and strikes them before they could answer it.
  • Bedsheet Ghost: Subverted; in "Ghosts In The Attic" she looks like one when her floating head wears a white table cloth.
  • Blush Sticker: Permanent ones.
  • Bookworm: Her bedroom has floating books with strings attached (or they may be book balloons), and she reads a book while sunbathing in "Crumpity Pity".
  • Break the Cutie: In "Family Secrets", the ignorance from her family concerning her grounded head makes her sorrowful, before she delivers payback to her siblings.
  • Buried Alive: It's implied that T-Bone buried her head in "Ghost In The Attic". He managed to jump and bite the tablecloth she was wearing one night.
  • The Chew Toy: Her removable head is fodder for several slapstick jokes.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Quite a literal example. Her head has been described to prefer living in the clouds and her bedroom is cloud themed. She contrasts from the rest of the family with her dreamy temperament.
  • Cranium Chase: She tries to get her head back at a few moments, such as when it's blown by Caprice in "Going Viral", and when her and body gets separated in "Ghosts in the Attic".
  • Disproportionate Retribution: In "Nez à nez", after Caprice banned Ditzy from modifying her fashion work on Marylin, Ditzy goes with her sister in the greenhouse and pushes her to a cabinet by surprise, and shuts it with a broom.
  • The Ditz: Being a literal airhead, she's not very unintelligent but is prone to mistakes, all while being passionate in philosophy.
  • Dude, Not Funny!: In "Shake It Up", once Li'l One is denied from staying in the Do Not Disturb room and is about to get thrown by Triceps, Ditzy is the only sibling near him who is concerned rather than laughing. This is averted, however, in "Going Viral" as she laughs at a teased Caprice.
  • Girly Bruiser: "Family Secrets" shows that her string can be used for choking and her head can strike someone to the air. She can get the upper hand in wrestling Caprice as seen in "Nez à nez".
  • Goshdang It To Heck: During her Jerkass Ball scene in "Family Secrets", she tells Blister "I don't give a string about your secrets!".
  • Idiot Ball: One mistake makes her responsible for hallucinating others in "Murder Everywhere".
  • Immediate Self-Contradiction: A hallmark of her ditzy personality.
    • What she says on what nonbelievers really believe in "Belief Relief":
    Ditzy: Nothing? How is that even possible? Believing in nothing ultimately means you believe in something, provided you grant that nothing's something of course.
    • When she tries to cheer Caprice in the beginning of "Ghost In The Attic", her description of love isn't quite clear.
    Ditzy: While it may not be sure-sure, you can never be sure-sure. Love's so very complicated and yet so simple, you know what I mean though?
  • Inelegant Blubbering: In "Family Secrets" after the family doesn't help her grounded head, and in "Murder Everywhere" when she's about to confess pouring Rudy Swan's ashes to the sugar container. These are rare examples of less watery crying in the show compared with the normal Ocular Gushers.
  • Jerkass Ball: In "Family Secrets", when she doesn't want the siblings to share more secrets with her, she strays from her usual kind character, becoming ill-behaved and assailing two of her siblings, including one who was not shown to mistreat her. She strangles Caprice with her string, and her head slams an incoming King to the air to crash the greenhouse.
    • In "Nez à nez", she pushes Caprice by surprise to a cabinet in the greenhouse and shuts it with a broom, so she can try to reach Marylin without somebody stopping her.
  • Losing Your Head: Ditzy's head is light and frequently comes off her body, and with a string attached it looks and floats like a balloon (with wind and rubber stretching sounds). Her head functions on its own, as so as her body which usually tries to get the head back, or hold the head as a held balloon or lift up in the air. Tying the string with a knot secures her head. In "Family Secrets", her head loses the ability to float twice so her body has to drag it on the ground. She would discover that gossiping would make her head float again. Her head drops again after her siblings catch her for gossiping their secrets.
  • Lotus Position: She does yoga on her cloud bed as seen in "Family Secrets".
  • Meaningful Name: Her English name reflecting her somewhat dopey nature, and French name (tête en l'air: head in the air).
  • Nice Girl: She's one of the nicest Crumpet kids in the cast. It doesn't mean she'll always be nice.
  • The Stool Pigeon: She's the one who created the rumor of her father's affair with a mistress (from misinterpreting Granny's old letter) in "Family Secrets". She shares secrets of her family to Cassandra after being asked to and founds out that this lets her head float again. She would be caught as a blabbermouth by her siblings.
  • Thinks Like a Romance Novel: In "Nez à nez", she develops a crush on Marylin. Because she never had been seriously in love before, she watches a romantic movie and reads Caprice's magazines for inspiration.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The girly girl to Triceps' tomboy, and the most noticeable pair out of the Crumpet sisters.

A brother-sister duo who do cruel fun, mainly to the other family members.

  • Annoying Younger Siblings: They're young Crumpet siblings who annoy others, including older ones.
  • Bad People Abuse Animals: T-Bone the dog is one of the twins' frequent targets for pranks. They shoot a two week-starved flea at T-Bone in the beginning of "Super Pfff" and the dog would spin and form a tornado for much of the story. They also attach him to a rocket in "Granny's Twin Sister".

  • Half-Identical Twins: They can share some phrases and actions including laughing on the floor.
  • Kids Are Cruel: The twins target other siblings, primarily Ohoh, and T-Bone the dog in their antics. They also victimize adults, like Bother exposing Pa's buttocks with an electric razor and dropping drips of urine to Ms. McBrisk's mouth.
  • Major Injury Underreaction: In "Octosquito", while Bother's head is a literal crumpet, José bites and eats a chunk of his head. When Bother returns to normal, the wound stays and he is perfectly fine.

  • Pink Girl, Blue Boy: The colors in their bedroom.

  • Jerkass Ball: In "My Family's Full of Losers", he borrows a machine gun in the game show for the purpose of killing his brothers and sisters in a game show round.

  • Super Zeroes: The episode "Supernawak" has Ohoh turning to the titular superhero by the twins and Cordless, and Fynartz gives him a Super Man-like costume. His thinking of having "superpowers" however were mainly based on a streak of lucky events rather than planning ahead as pointed by Li'l One, which causes Ohoh to quit being a superhero for a while.
  • Tornado Move: In "Supernawak", he spins like a tornado after he's released from an electric wire that had wrapped him, and after his spinning touched and saved a cooking oil barrel, he thinks he has a superpower. Near the end, he does his "special death twirl", trips on his cape, and pushes Cordless into falling on Ms. McBrisk and through her roof.
  • Troubling Unchildlike Behavior: In "My Family's Full of Losers", he tries to kill his family with a machine gun.

Voiced by: Antoine Raffin and Lucas Ripberger (French), Alex Luscomb (English)
Also one of the youngest children, he pretends to be a lion and wears a costume of the animal.
  • Blatant Lies: In "Amnesia", during King's captivity under Ms. McBrisk, Cassie confronts him for being cared by her mother. After loosening from her grip, he cries and hits an open door just before Ms. McBrisk arrives at the scene. He blames Cassie for hitting him, therefore leading to her exile from her mother's household. It could be possible his door collision might have contributed to his amnesia.
  • Doorstop Baby: In "Amnesia", he's launched by the outside clothing wheel to the McBrisk yard and is found by Ms. McBrisk. She keeps him like an adoptive child, tames him, and names him Ghislain.

  • Friend to All Living Things: Feeling like the king of the jungle also means he cares for other animals like Grownboy's pets in "Disassister". Ultimately, he disappointingly gives them up while they're inhabiting the house, and Caprice lampshades him as a friend to the animals to his annoyance.
  • Funny Afro: He has an afro under his fake mane. In "Sticks Stink", L'il-One shaves it, and this would make way to the main conflict of the episode. In "Amnesia", Ms. McBrisk keeps his afro intact.
  • Hates Baths: Doesn't like bathing because he likes to wear his costume. This drives the scene in "Amnesia" where the family chases him in the house.

  • Identity Amnesia: In "Amnesia", he suffers from the titular condition as a result of getting launched from the clothing wheel to the McBrisk yard at one night. Ms. McBrisk adopts him and names him Ghislain. His wild animal personality pertains by the start of McBrisk's care on him, but her brief rearing transforms him to a formal boy.
  • Jerkass Ball: In "Sticks Stink", he successfully ruins L'il-One's birthday when he's disguised as him.
  • Leitmotif: An African drumming piece can be heard in his scenes.
  • Lover Tug-of-War: In a platonic example, Ma and Ms. McBrisk pull his arms in their fight over his custody in "Amnesia".
  • Meaningful Name: He pretends to be the king of the jungle.
  • Running on All Fours: Can do this, like in "Amnesia".
  • Signature Scent: Can give off a nasty odor due to his fear of being bathed, as in the beginning of "Amnesia".
  • Super Window Jump: Unintentionally does this to the greenhouse in "Family Secrets" after Ditzy's head slammed him to the air.
  • Terrified of Germs: King is afraid of germs and viruses. He believes that wearing his lion costume shields him from germs. On the other hand, he is filthy and Hates Baths.

  • Bunnies for Cuteness: Has a pet rabbit taken out of her house along with other belongings in "Save Granny".

  • By "No", I Mean "Yes": In "Inside Li'l One's Brain", Cassandra calls Pfff to Ma's workshop. Once he arrives, he asks her if she called him. She initially answers "no" before adding "I mean, yes" more nervously.
  • The Conscience: She provides guidance to others when they're dealing with moral issues or unhappiness, especially Ms. McBrisk or Caprice. In season 3, some of the advice for Caprice tackle topics such as depression, bad luck or anxiety from wearing dental braces.
  • Damsel in Distress: After kicking the Crumpets' roof satellite in "Granny Strip", she falls and gets rescued by Pfff.
  • Dating What Daddy Hates: A mother example, Cassie's romantic attachment with Pfff is often criticized by her mother since he is an incompetent young man.
  • Disappeared Dad: Her father is nowhere to be seen or named. "The Divorce" reveals that Ms. McBrisk separated from him for a less forgivable, yet undisclosed reason than why Hurry and Harried split. In "50 nuances de Cassie" though, McBrisk had a boyfriend reminiscent to a brown-haired and blue-nosed Pfff, but there's no sign she had reversed her breakup from him.
  • Doppelgänger: In "Super Pfff", she disguises herself as Pfff so she can deny any previous romance with the weather girl. Then as they're inside the tornado, Pfff discovers and misinterprets Cassandra as a doppelganger, and picks her over the weather girl because Cassie appears to be his choice to love himself, which Pa recommended him to prioritize. Unfortunately for Cassie, after the tornado subsided she gets mistakenly airlifted by a helicopter to a monastery due to Pfff's poor performance in his internship.
    • Does this again in "Pity The Prize" by disguising as the weather girl (whose hair and clothes are very similar).
  • Fake Boobs: In "Granny Strip", she rips and stuffs her collar to make these.
  • Fanservice: Although less frequently than her mother (at least in the first two seasons), she gets two of her times in "Granny Strip" when she rips her clothes twice.
  • Fanservice Pack: Despite being a teenager, Cassandra receives one when she pretends to be a German girl in "Granny Strip" by ripping her clothes, adding Fake Boobs, makeup, and unbraiding her hair. Upon looking what appears to be Pfff watching the female weather reporter (which is actually Granny wearing Pfff's hair and using her laptop), she takes off all clothes but her undergarments and covers her body with shredded wallpaper. She returns to wearing stripped clothing in "50 nuances de Cassie".

    • She almost joins the family in "Family Secrets" due to the allegation of Pa's affair with her mother, and temporarily in "Road Stories" when her mother is kidnapped in the Crumpet van nearby.
  • Goth: She's not normally seen as one unlike Caprice and Marylin, but she dresses as a goth as street clothes according "The Courting of Ms. McBrisk" and "Crumpity Pity". She normally can't walk through her house wearing them because her mother frowns on them.
  • Gratuitous German: In "Granny Strip", Cassandra speaks a bit of German when she introduces herself as a German girl to the Crumpets.
  • Grumpy Bear: While not very irritable like Caprice, she has numerous crabby moments. In "One Man chien", for example, she and Caprice disapprove Cordless and Larry's frivolous approach to rehearsing the theatre play, and Cordless' proposal to revise the girls' script, initially.
  • Heel Realization: In "Odeurs corp", after Cassie and Caprice's body odor eliminating pills hit the market, Cassie feels bad for Marylin and Pfff being left untreated with the odors they received from consuming experimental versions of the pills. At the elevator climax, she sides with the boys arguing against Caprice to quit selling the pills.
  • Improbably Low IQ: In "Quotient H", despite being rather intelligent, she is given the lowest IQ on Cordless' IQ test with a level of 30. While she finds it hilarious and believes the test was played for fun, her friends view the test's results seriously and withdraw from her as if she's legitimately stupid, leaving her lonely and questioning her actual intelligence.
  • Laughing Mad: In "Insectator", soon after she defeated Pfff in the video game, she does a maniacal laugh.
  • Like Mother, Like Daughter: In "50 nuances de Cassie", Cassie's friends encourage her to find her true self and avoid becoming a replica of her mother. When Cassie, who just broke up from her friends, looks at an unexpected photo album in a suitcase as she prepares to run away from home, it turns out that when her mother was a teenager, she had friends who greatly resemble Cassie's and she was rebellious enough to break up from them, as Cassie recently achieved. McBrisk even adopted some of the same fashions Cassie had tried (including being a hippie), played an African drum, and had a boyfriend who was pretty similar to Pfff. The discovery shocks Cassie, who's actually getting less dissimilar to her mother, and has to reunite with Caprice and the others.
  • Limited Wardrobe: Lampshaded in the beginning of "Crumpity Pity", when Caprice notes that Cassandra has to wear the same colored boots to school everyday and her mother doesn't allow her daughter to choose clothes often.
  • Lingerie Scene: After she rips her clothes for the second time and drops them in "Granny Strip", she only wears undergarments (other than wearing torn wallpaper temporarily) for the remainder of the episode.
  • Literally Loving Thy Neighbor: She is romantically obsessed with the neighboring Pfff.
  • Locked Away in a Monastery: In "Super Pfff", under the appearance of Pfff she's unintentionally punished and taken away by a Hurry helicopter to a monastery for disappointing Pa.
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: Downplayed with Pfff. Cassie is more active and aggressive than him, but she is the emotional one.
  • New-Age Retro Hippie: In "50 nuances de Cassie", she becomes a hippie at her first attempt to stray from becoming like her mother in the future. She speaks at a stereotypical, peace-advocating fashion that is awkward to Caprice. She's also wearing the same clothes like her mother did, who had been a hippie sometime in her youth.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: Cassandra does obvious, yet effective, disguises.
    • "Granny Strip": She pretends to be a German girl and had her clothes ripped. Oddly enough, after Cassandra told Pfff she'll wait for him next door, Caprice still thinks she's another girl.
    • "Super Pfff": She pretends to be Pfff by unbraiding her hair and wearing his clothes prior. She sets the stage of sabotaging the Weather Girl's attraction with Pfff by denying any romance. The Weather Girl believes Pfff is breaking themselves up.
  • Pink Girl, Blue Boy: Inverted with Pfff, whose nose is pink.
  • Playing Possum: In "Girls On Holiday", she pretends to die when following Caprice's example so she can disapprove her mother's strict standards for travel preparedness.
  • Put on a Bus: Literally in "Amnesia", she rides on a bus for a trip and returns home before the episode's halfway point. Her angry last words at her mother before her temporary absence causes the latter to disregard Cassandra before adopting King after finding him outside at night.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Blue oni to Caprice's red oni. Her nose, hair, and clothes are blue, she's intellectual, does hobbies, and is formal and respectful (unless if she tries getting her hands on Pfff or if she's annoyed).
  • Removing the Rival: She briefly succeeds doing this against the Weather Girl that Pfff admires in "Super Pfff", by disguising as him and lying to her as if he's actually not interested. Well, until when all three went to T-Bone's tornado and Pfff gets a chance to rescue the Weather Girl from her car.
  • Rubber Hose Limbs: Like Pfff, her arms are bendy.
  • The Runaway: In "50 nuances de Cassie", after she split from her friends in favor of a highly rebellious lifestyle, her final objective would be running away from home. When she opens her suitcase from the garage, she finds a photo album containing pictures of her mother going through the same issues she's been facing. It turns out her being rebellious aligns her even more to McBrisk, whom she's afraid of becoming similar to in the future, and she spots Caprice aside and rekindles their friendship.
  • Sexy Walk: In "Granny Strip", she does a suggestive walk towards Pfff while pretending to be a stripped German girl.
  • Signature Scent: In "Odeurs corp", when Cordless tests his scent detecting device on Cassie, it discloses that she smells like lavender.
  • Stalker with a Crush: She's romantically obsessed with Pfff, who doesn't always express interest in her; she is more stalkish in "CrumStep" as she touches his back and runs after him. She has a picture of him in her bedroom. In Teen Crumpets, she doesn't approach him like a stalker often, but does it more like a friend.
  • Stunned Silence: In "My Family's Full of Losers", she's silently horrified upon hearing Pfff's ejection to the moon.
  • Super Speed: While she and others dash occasionally, in "Rip la guitare" she dashes across a longer distance to get ahead of Marylin and Cordless chasing Larry, and Caprice chasing Pfff, before blowing a whistle in front of everyone to stop.
  • Tears of Joy: She happily sheds tears upon hearing Pfff's laziness in his weather station internship in "Super Pfff", which would be favorable to her relationship with him.
  • That Woman Is Dead: In "50 nuances de Cassie", at the scene when Pfff tries to soothe a defiant Cassie that strives for self-identity, she proclaims that the old Cassie is gone. Pfff states that he sees her as the same, but consequentially she remains annoyed. Before driving him away, she disposes her romantic relationship with him and accuses him of living in the past.
  • True Blue Femininity: Her clothes, nose and hair are blue, and she is normally kinder than Caprice.
  • Two Girls to a Team: She and Caprice are the only females in the main cast of Teen Crumpets.
  • Vague Age: Averted as she's 14 according to "Granny Strip". But in "Greener Pastures" she's 15, when noting she's 998 days away from turning 18.
  • Vocal Evolution: In the English dub of the second episode "Sticks Stink", she has a slightly higher pitched voice than usual.
  • Voice Changeling: She can reproduce the voice of the weather girl in "Pity The Prize" (which is not the blonde one). There are few moments where she accidentally speaks in her regular voice.
  • Wacky Parent, Serious Child: She avoids participating too many crazy or illegal activities unlike her mother, and sometimes tries to stop the latter from them.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has shades of blue hair.
  • Young Entrepreneur: In "Odeurs corp", Caprice's insufficient funds for her online shopping prompt the two girls to sell an invention of their own. They decide on body odor-eliminating pills that were invented with Cordless' assistance in a bid to resolve an apparent global crisis of unhygienic people. Due to the product's ethical issues, Cassie ultimately withdraws from the plan. Caprice remains committed to it and doesn't change her heart.
