The Weekenders

     Tino Tonitini
Voiced By: Jason Marsden

"Isn't there a way to do this that preserves our essential laziness?"

Tino is the good-hearted de-facto leader and unanimous “neurotic” of the group. He gets through his days and situations by cutting smart, sarcastic and witty remarks (and breaking the forth wall). When threatened, he can appear to be a bit of a coward, but despite his neurotic and flighty personality, he has proven on many occasions to be resourceful, and brave.

Voiced By: Grey DeLisle

     Carver René Descartes
Voiced By: Phil La Marr

  • Big Eater: He polishes off a whole pizza by himself while the gang are talking, much to their annoyance.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Has a tendency to make sassy comments.
  • Did I Just Say That Out Loud?: Tends to blurt out outlandish lies that he then feels obligated to follow up on, like saying Chum Bucket were going to dedicate their next concert to the gang.
  • Black Best Friend: To Tino in particular.
  • Cool Loser
  • Hero Worship: He worships the cool kids, Chum Bucket and Kyle from Teen Canyon.
  • Hidden Depths: Despite usually appearing to be rather superficial and obsessed with being seen as cool, "The Perfect Weekend" shows that he gets along with middle-aged woman surprisingly well, and that he can be very mature for his age.
  • It's All About Me: Carver is shown to be a little self-centered and annoying. He can also be immensely shallow and superficial towards women (he once rejected a girl just because she was too tall).
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's shallow and insensitive, but learns his lesson by the end of the day.
  • Pride: When it comes to anything "cool".
  • Named After Somebody Famous: Shares his middle and last name with French mathemetician and philosopher Rene Descartes.
  • No Listening Skills: In the episode "Listen Up", this becomes a problem when Carver and his friends sign up to be helpers to help kids get over worrying about middle school and Carver doesn't help his kid by not listening to his problems. He spends the rest of the episode learning how to listen and comes to a realization when people don't listen to his problem. He eventually makes it up to his kid by the end.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Carver has a strong interest in clothes and fashion (particularly shoes).
  • Running Gag:
    • His obsession with shoes.
    • And his terrible handwriting.
  • Slave to PR: Obsessed with 'coolness' and being seen as cool, which is often to his detriment.
  • Spiky Hair: It goes with his wannabe cool image. On "The Worst Weekend Ever" he frets that he forgot to pack his hair gel.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Pizza.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Implied, although his Dad seems unaware of it.

     Dot Cardigan 


     Bluke and Francis 

  • Big Fun: Bluke is pretty chubby, and he's very nice. He also apparently likes to do magic tricks.
  • Creepy Child: Francis, although she's harmless.
  • Hidden Depths: Bluke's simplicity allows him to see a simpler solution and/or the bigger picture. The Tao of Bluke showed this off. For the former, he was able to just relax and have fun compared to everybody coming up with complicated answers. The latter came at the end of the episode; thinking Pizza was the best prize compared to the pool table. After all "You can split a pizza five ways, how do you split a pool table?" Cut to the winners of the table fighting over where it's going.
  • The Hyena: Francis has a very creepy giggle.
  • Kind Hearted Simpleton: Bluke.
  • Knife Nut: Francis likes pointy things.
  • The Load: The gang treat Bluke like this in 'The Tao of Bluke', but he ends up actually winning them second place. Which ended up being the better prize. Bluke reasons that "You can split a pizza five ways, but how do you split a pool table?"
  • Those Two Guys: Although Bluke sometimes features in episodes by himself.

     Colby and Brie 

  • Dull Surprise: They never, ever show much emotion.
  • Heel Realization: After Brie becomes uncool in 'Uncool World' and becomes on the receiving end of being mocked, she realises how hurtful it is and decrees that both she and Colby stop doing it once they both become cool again.
  • Jerkass: They like to verbally tear down others for not being as 'cool' as them- they almost make Bluke cry before Tino calls them out on it.
  • Like Is, Like, a Comma
  • Not So Above It All: Brie is a fan of "Li'l Muffins", like several uncool kids.
  • Sunglasses at Night: Brie never takes hers off- the sun burns her eyes.
  • Ungrateful Bitch: Brie never even thanks the gang in 'Uncool World' for helping her out after Colby ditched her.

     Christy and Candy 

     Chloe Montez 

  • Born Unlucky: Does not even begin to cover it. Almost every episode, she's mentioned as being involved in some kind of Noodle Incident.
  • The Ghost: Frequently mentioned but is never actually seen onscreen.

     Bebe Cahill 

  • Kiddie Kid: Appears to be in the same grade as the weekenders but has a childish interest in "Lil Muffins" and talkng animals.
  • No Social Skills: A lack of this gets her kicked out of the movie theater
  • Stop Helping Me!: Says this almost word for word



     Ms. Tonitini 

  • Adults Are Useless: Very much averted in the course of the show.
  • Amicably Divorced: Is this with Tino's dad
  • Deadpan Snarker: She and Tino often snark at each other
  • Good Parents: She and Tino often have conversations with one another over..."dinner" where she advises him on what he should probably do in order to solve that episode's plot, listening to what he says and giving practical advice.
  • Lethal Chef: A running gag on the show
  • No Name Given: Her first name remains unknown.
  • Voice of Reason: Often acts as this towards Tino and his friends


  • Friend to All Children: Gets along very well with Tino and his friends, to the point where when it looked like Mrs. Tonitini and Dixon would be getting married Tino was all for it.
  • Real Men Can Cook: Shown to be a talented chef

     Coach Colson 

     Mr. Higgenbottom 

     Gloria Duong 

     Jan "The Man" Testeverde
