Main characters

Drew Blanc

A put upon cartoonist who works designing characters for the invokedFluffy Fluffy Bun Bun Show. He hates such sickeningly sweet characters and reaches an artist block after reminiscing about when he first got into the business during an all-nighter. He wakes up to Fluffy 's show, and is pulled into the cartoon world.

Played by: Christopher Lloyd

  • Badass Normal: As the only human in a world of toons, it's fairly self-explanatory.
  • Advertisement:
  • Bag of Holding: Given one by Bricabrac to hold all his inventory. Apparently he keeps it inside of an inner pocket of his coat.
  • Deadpan Snarker: When someone earns his annoyance (such as Snout) expect him to make some good snide comments.
  • Nice Guy: While his main goal is to just get home, he doesn't really hesitate to help people who need it. He even cheers up Fluffy (whom he sort of hates) when he really had no obligation to. This works against him when he gets to the Malevolands, whose inhabitants only respond to insulting and rude behavior.
  • No-Sell: In contrast with Flux, the Cutifier has no effect on him. This also could mean that the Malevolator probably has no effect on him as well.
  • Pay Evil unto Evil: But after abuse from Nefarious and Ms. Fortune he shows a mean streak when given the opportunity: trashing Count's study and destroying his (priceless) heirlooms and giving some humiliating commands to the hypnotized Ms. Fortune.

  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Blue Oni to Flux's Red Oni. Drew is more laid back.

Flux Wildly

A purple, green glasses-wearing Cartoon Creature who Drew made when he started as a cartoonist. Wild and Wisecracking Flux generally acts as Drew's sidekick and helps him reach smaller spaces.

Voiced by: Dan Castellaneta.

  • Cartoon Creature: Kind of like a blob with a humanoid shape and glasses for eyes. According to the manual, his lack of recognizable species is why Drew had such a hard time trying to pitch his show.
  • Casanova Wannabe: He tries to put the moves on Ms. Fit, but backs off when she says she karates chops guys who pretend to be into books just so they could date her.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Much more of a smart ass than his creator, which helps when talking to Malevolanders, who speak tough. He can become a bit much though even over there.
  • Advertisement:
  • Expressive Mask: His glasses move like real eyes.
  • Politically Incorrect Hero: Flux has quite a mouth on him, which often includes insulting someone's implied orientation or mental disability. Drew berates him for the latter.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Red Oni to Drew's Blue Oni. Flux has much more of an attitude.
  • Shoo Out the Clowns: The humor in Disc Two diminishes, due to him not being present when Drew is captured as a prisoner by Nefarious.

Main villains

Count Nefarious

The main villain of the game. He plans on using a flying machine called the Malevolator to turn Cutopia into a land of evil over which he rules.

Voiced by: Tim Curry.

  • Ambiguously Human: He looks mostly human, but has a pale, corpse-like face with long, stringy hair, pupilless red eyes, and no visible ears. The rest of his body is covered by clothing.
  • Aristocrats Are Evil: He's Count Nefarious. Because just being named "Nefarious" apparently wasn't enough.
  • Bad Boss: He's shown frequently verbally berating and physically abusing his minions. His cruelest treatment is towards his jester, Spike, who he had his brains fried by Ms. Fortune for his amusement.
  • Big Bad: He's the most obvious main villain. Although Fluffy Fluffy Bun Bun turns out to be just as evil as he is.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: He often basks in how evil he is and even at one time comments how he can be just a terrible prick as he reveals he applied a mutagen that will transform Drew into a toon.
  • Creepy Shadowed Undereyes: Has black patches around his eyes.
  • Evil Brit: He's unapologetically evil and sports a strong British accent.
  • Evil Has a Bad Sense of Humor: He has a tendency to make terribly, obvious puns, while thinking they're funny.
    • On a crueler note, he also thinks it's amusing to Mind Rape his jester into insanity.
  • Evil Is Hammy: It's a given for a villain voiced by Tim Curry.
  • Evil Laugh: As a classic Card-Carrying Villain, he sports a hammy laugh when he's enacting his evil plans or gloating over his captives.
  • Evil Overlord: He is the ruler of the Malevolands, who seeks to take over Cutopia and use his machine to malevolate any victim he comes across. He then expands his goal to try to take over the real world as well.
  • Faux Affably Evil: While most of the time he won't hide how terrible he can be, he can show faux concern when it's used to mock his victims or trying to manipulate someone.
  • Kick the Dog: Although most of his actions can be chalked up to cartoon villainy, his treatment of Spike is very noticeably cruel due to him just doing it for his own amusement rather than furthering his goals.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Despite making a couple of terrible jokes, he's never played for laughs and is treated as a serious threat.
  • Laughing at Your Own Jokes: He makes some lame puns while taunting Drew in the dungeon, and chuckles at them.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: With a name like "Nefarious", there's no way he's going to do anything to help our heroes.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: He is drawn more realistically in comparison with the other characters in the game, which makes him looking even more unsettling and creepy.
  • Obviously Evil: To a point one could say he's a parody of this type of villain. This is in contrast with Fluffy Fluffy Bun Bun, who looks cute on the outside but is just as despicable as the count.
  • Orcus on His Throne: Zigzagged. While he will delegate certain duties to his minions (like finding Drew and Flux), he is shown personally flying the Malevolator himself and and later in the final sections of the game going after Flux in the Cutifier with his flying throne.
  • Ominous Opera Cape: He wears a long, black and red cape.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: He has solid red eyes surrounded by black. Just part of his Obviously Evil appearance.
  • Surrounded by Idiots: He's very vocal about how incompetent his main minions can be, especially if Feedback, Goggles, and Lugnut managed to capture Flux and Drew and they escape. He also doesn't mince words about Snout's lack of intelligence, who due to his stupidity thinks they are compliments.
  • Take Over the World: His main goal is take over the Toon world. It's later revealed he plans on conqueroring the real world as well.
  • Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: In a game with such a comically light hearted tone, the obvious Big Bad Nefarious is a melomaniac bent on conquering all the land and causing a Sugar Apocalypse on the super cutesy, Cutetopia.

Ms. Fortune

A cat with various Psychic Powers who serves Count Nefarious.

Voiced by: Tress MacNeille

  • Cat Folk: She's an anthropomorphic cat.
  • Cats Are Magic: She's a catwoman with Psychic Powers, which includes hypnosis and future predictions.
  • Cats Are Mean: She's a cat, and one of the main villains of the game.
  • The Dragon: Drew must best her before he can access the Malevolator's hangar, which is the final room in the game.
  • Fortune Teller: Predicting the future is one of her many powers, although her predictions are not 100% guaranteed to happen.
  • Hypno Fool: After her hypnosis powers are reflected at her, on top of helping Drew open the door to the Malevolator's hangar, she is ordered to feel itchy, only talk to Drew's friends in kind words, and only address Count Nefarious using rude words. The game ends before we can see the consequences of this.
  • Hypnotic Eyes: Hypnotizing people by staring into their eyes (complete with spiral-shaped irises) is one of her many powers.
  • Punny Name: She's evil, so meeting her is a misfortune.
  • Yellow Eyes of Sneakiness: She's Count Nefarious' cunning right-hand woman, and she has yellow eyes. Justified because she's a cat.

Feedback, Goggles, and Lugnut

A trio of henchmen who serve Count Nefarious. They suffer from various disabilities, and use cybernetic enhancements to compensate for them.

Voiced respectively by: Jim Cummings, Corey Burton and Rob Paulsen.

  • Artificial Limbs: They have to use special gadgets to enable them to speak, see and hear, due to imperfections in their resurrection.
  • Big, Thin, Short Trio: Lugnut is big and wide, Goggles is thin and tall, and Feedback is small and short.
  • Evil Cripple: Feedback is mute, Goggles is blind, and Lugnut is deaf. They have implants that correct these issues.
  • Failed a Spot Check: When entering a building to look for Drew and Flux, they always just look around the main area of the building for a few seconds before giving up. Every place they look in always has a closet, changing room, or something similar for Drew to hide in, and the trio doesn't even bother checking it.
  • Goldfish Poop Gang: They are very incompetent at their job. When they capture Drew, he always escaped easily, and when they're tasked with guarding the armory, they decide to play cards while blasting loud music.
  • Our Zombies Are Different: While it's not fully elaborated on, they're implied to be the toon versions of zombies. They look like half-finished character templates, and Nefarious mentions that he had to put a lot of work into "reanimating" them. Seedy even specifically calls them zombies.
  • Vile Villain, Laughable Lackey: While their boss is a surprisingly creepy and unsettling villain for such a lighthearted and comedic game, they on the other hand are bumbling nitwits that fail at whatever task is given to them and have a lot of jokes made at their own expense.



A half Irish/half Scottish clover shaped cheese bodied bartender and tavern owner.

Voiced by: Rob Paulsen

  • Anthropomorphic Food: He's a walking, green, and clover shaped piece of cheese. This is deconstructed a bit, since a mouse that frequents his bar tries to take chunks out of him.
  • Cartoon Cheese: He's shaped like a green, clover version of one.
  • No Name Given: Like the Footman, he doesn't have a proper name.
  • Mixed Ancestry: He's half Irish/half Scottish.
  • Scotireland: Parodied. He's shaped like a shamrock, wearing a tam o'shanter and a kilt, whose accent alternates between Irish and Scottish every other line.


The royal engineer. He's very forgetful.

Voiced by: Corey Burton.


A scarecrow who takes care of crows instead of scaring them off.

Voiced by Jeff Bennett.

  • All Gays Love Theater: Implied, since he offers to sing act 2 of West Side Story in exchange for some new clothes.
  • Ambiguously Gay: Checks off pretty much every gay stereotype, from his voice to his love for fashion and theater, but he's never explicitly mentioned to be gay.
  • Non-Ironic Clown: The costume with everything he wants turns out to be the harlequin suit. Subverted in that, almost immediately after he gets it, he gets Malevolated, turning him evil against his will.

Dough And Mee

Frog brothers who own a bakery. Their brother, Ray, was kidnapped by Nefarious and as a result their bread production was stopped.

Voiced respectively by: Jim Cummings and Rob Paulsen

  • Frog Men: They are anthromorphic frogs, who bake bread.
  • Sweet Baker: They are bakers and friendly to the duo.
  • Punny Name: Their names and brother's is a pun on Do-Re-Mi.

Fluffy Fluffy Bun Bun

A rabbit who's absolutely overflowing with joy... most of the time. She's also the star of Drew's current show.

Voiced by: Tress MacNeille.

  • Accessory-Wearing Cartoon Animal: She wears a bow on her head and nothing else.
  • Annoying Laugh: She has a very grating laugh. Just one of the many reasons Flux hates her.
  • Beware the Cute Ones: Her cuteness is just an act. She's actually a villain bent on world domination.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: At first she seems to be just an innocent (albeit annoyingly cute) critter, but the reveal of her masquerading as King Hue and her plans for the Cutifier shows that she's just as evil as Nefarious.
  • Bunnies for Cuteness: She's very good at acting cutesy.
  • Cute Is Evil: She's a cutesy bunny, who has ambitions of being tyrannical conqueror.
  • Does Not Like Spam: She absolutely HATES cotton candy, to the point that merely being given some completely ruins her day.
  • Face of an Angel, Mind of a Demon: She looks like a stereotypically cute kid's show protagonist, but underneath that pink façade is a power hungry maniac, who wants to recreate the world in her image.
  • The Fake Cutie: Her earlier cutesy persona was just an act to hide that she's secretly an usurper, who has plans to conquer the world like Nefarious and force people to be cutified against their will.
  • A God Am I: She has inspirations to become a god in her plans of terror.
  • Mood-Swinger: She switches from cheery to depressed to enraged several times mid-conversation.
  • Surrounded by Idiots: She gets frustrated with the the armadillo guards lack of competence, especially when one of them is playing patty cake with the Cutified Flux.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: She loves popcorn.


An octopus who runs the arcade. He's an immigrant from Zanydu and hates Cutopia's cuteness, but puts up with it because the residents are easy to con.

Voiced by: Dom De Luise.

  • Con Man: He moved from Zanydu to Cutopia, because the Cutopians were easier to con than back home.
  • Deadpan Snarker: It's what outs him as a resident of Zandyu.
  • Funny Octopus: An octopus with a hilarious, snarky attitude.


A giant foot with limbs and additional heads on his toes. Loyal servant of King Hugh.

Voiced by: Corey Burton.

  • The Comically Serious: His prissy, uptight attitude makes him the butt of many jokes thanks to Drew and Flux.
  • Visual Pun: He's a living foot who works as a footman.

King Hugh

The benevolent ruler of Cutopia. Asks for Drew's assistance in helping fight back against the Malevolands.

Voiced by: David Ogden Stiers.

  • The Good King: He is seen as this by his subjects, who speak higly of him (except Fingers who finds his happiness obnoxious).
  • Distressed Dude: Turns out the King Hugh you met at the start wasn't the real deal. The actual Hugh was locked in a dungeon somewhere before the start of the game.

Marge and Polly

A cow and sheep. Marge produces all the butter in Cutopia. Polly's role is not clear. Later on, they get hit by the Malevolator and become "Mistress" Marge and "Punisher" Polly.

Voiced respectively by: Tress MacNeille and April Winchell.

  • Bondage Is Bad: The Malevolator turns them into "Mistress" Marge and "Punisher" Polly, who kill Elmer to make glue.
  • Constantly Lactating Cow: Marge is an anthropomorphic cow who laments her butter-making Churnatron being out of order due to a missing part. Once you find that part and it gets reattached, Marge will attach the machine's suction caps to her udders every few seconds to produce butter.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: Marge's moans while she's milking herself are a bit too suggestive.
  • Too Kinky to Torture: "Mistress" Marge has grown numb to all forms of punishment except for Tickle Torture.

Ms. Fit

A buxom, valley-girl bookworm who owns the Costumeorama store.

Voiced by: April Winchell

  • Berserk Button: Anyone who pretends to be interested in books just to date her. She even tells Drew and Flux (who tries to hit on her) that it pisses her off so much that she even will use her karate skills on them.
  • Bookworm: She is a very big reader, who loves reading complicated books.
  • Dumb Blonde: Inverted. She's actually very well-read and is seen reading her book when she doesn't have any customers.

  • Victoria's Secret Compartment: She takes the voucher for a free rental after it's signed with the seal from the music box and places it in her cleavage.


Dough and Mee's brother, who was kidnapped by Nefarious' henchmen and imprisoned in his castle. He is later freed by Drew when he opens the crate that he was in.

Voiced by: Frank Welker

  • Distressed Dude: He's kidnapped and held prisoner by Count Nefarious, until Drew frees him.
  • Frog Men: He's an anthromorphic frog like his brothers.
  • Sweet Baker: He's a baker like his other two brothers.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: Even though he's not in the game that much, he still does a number of things that help Drew: give him a crystal to power the Malevolator, tell him about the device to take him back home, and his crate is used by Drew to get closer to obtaining dynamite which he uses to explode the alligator guards.
  • Punny Name: He completes the punny Theme Naming he and his brothers have going on.



A bulldog who runs Jim's Gym.

Voiced by: Jeff Bennett.

Toilet Sentry

A security guard who prevents anyone from using the outhouse outside of authorized Fish Flushing Hours.

Voiced by: Jeff Bennett.

  • Comically Serious: He's reading you entire paragraphs of Zanydu criminal codex, which basically say he must beat you if you try to break the rules, with slang expressions for actual sanctions.
  • The Determinator: He will never leave his post until the clock signals the end of his shift. The clock has been broken for years.
  • The Guards Must Be Crazy: Subverted. He actually is so dedicated to his job that he doesn't fall for the usual tricks used to fool security like him, which makes him a hassle to our main duo until they finally fix the clock and he leaves his post.
  • Token Human: One of the few human toons.

Woof and Warp

A dog and cat who run the Wacme shop, which sells a selection of hilarious but dangerous items.

Woof voiced by: Jeff Bennett.

  • Amazing Technicolor Wildlife: Woof is a purple dog. Warp's orange fur is not unnatural for a cat, though his orange-and-white coloration is closer to that of a red fox than a tabby cat. Their colors are two potential answers in the phone quiz.
  • Amusing Injuries: Their entire purpose used to be to inflict horrific yet inexplicably temporary injuries on each other. Now they also sell tools to help other people do the same.
  • Animal Jingoism: They're a cat and dog, and their entire purpose used to be to mutilate each other in increasingly painful (but temporary) ways. They've put their rivalries aside to open a shop, although they still harm each other to test and demonstrate their products.
  • Fat and Skinny: Woof is thin as a rail, and Warp is round and fat.
  • The Unintelligible: Warp laughs a lot but never speaks.

The Malevolands

B.B. Wolf

A wolf who prevents you from accessing the Malevolands until you bring him wine.

Voiced by: Jim Cummings


A giant purple monster who prevents people without proper attire from accessing Seedy's.

Voiced by: Tress MacNeille.

  • Bad is Good and Good is Bad: She refuses to let Drew into Seedy's if he addresses her politely and will only allow him in if he uses crass vernacular.
  • Bouncer: A rare female one, who is very competent at keeping anyone who doesn't meet the joint's standards out.
  • Eyes Do Not Belong There: Her eyes are located in her armpits.
  • Female Monster Surprise: Flux assumes she's male upon first meeting her.
  • The Guards Must Be Crazy: Subverted. She is very good at keeping anyone lacking the proper attire out of the club.
  • No Name Given: She's never given a proper name, except what her profession is.

Robot Maker

A robot who wishes to destroy all organic life.

Voiced by: Jeff Bennett.

  • Evil Genius: He makes all sort of inventions for the elite of the Malevolands, especially Count Nefarious. His noted creations are the security doors in the Malevoland Prison cell door, the security system in Nefarious' castle, and devices for Feedback, Goggles, and Lugnut to make up for their disabilities.
  • Logic Bomb: He can answer any question, but being told a paradox will destroy him.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: His voice is an obvious Christopher Walken impression.
  • No Name Given: He goes nameless throughout the game.
  • Shout-Out: His body is blatantly modeled after a Dalek.
  • Smug Snake: He overtly prides himself on his inventions and intelligence to the point that he claims that all his security set ups for Nefarious can't be overstepped or that he can answer any question. However, Drew proved him wrong when he couldn't answer a paradox (and his head exploded from not being able to compherend it) and later when he's in Nefarious' castle and manages to bypass it all through creative trickery (or even before if he gets caught by Nefarious' henchmen and escapes from the jail with Flux). His egotistical view of himself is even lampshaded by Flux.
  • The Starscream: He aids Count Nefarious by supplying him with various useful machines, but he plans on exterminating him just like all other organic beings once his plan is ready.
  • Take Over the World: He plans to one day stage a robot revolution and take over the world. Flux and Drew poke fun at how cliche his character archetype is.
  • Villain Cred: Despite the fact that he plans on exterminating Nefarious along with all other organic life, he does show admiration for how evil he is.


The owner of a bowling alley. The only person capable of scoring a strike in "Hare Pin Bowling", thanks to his "special technique". You need a trophy from his alley, but he'll only give it to those who can get a strike.

Voiced by: Jim Cummings.

  • Cigar Chomper: He always has a cigar in his mouth, except for when he uses it to crush a fly.
  • Creepy Crossdresser: His patented move requires him to fire a bowling ball from between his buttocks while wearing a tutu.
  • Eyes Always Shut: They add to his shifty appearance.
  • Manly Tears: When Drew and Flux get a strike in Hare Pin Bowling, something only Seedy was able to do previously, he starts sobbing. Flux mentions that he "[hates] to see a grown man cry."
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite his gruff attitude, he doesn't seem quite as malicious as the other Malevolanders. He's downright blissful when showing his "special technique" for bowling. He can't really be considered a Graceful Loser because he sobs uncontrollably when Drew and Flux win his bet, but he at least keeps his promise and gives them the trophy willingly.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: "Seedy" means untrustworthy, which fits his tough guy persona nicely.
    • Ironically, he's the most honorable and trustworthy Malevolander you encounter.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Despite being a typical tough guy, he wears pink ballet attire from the waist down (a tutu, tights, and ballet shoes.)
  • Token Human: He is one of the very few human toons.


A warthog-like ogre who guards the prison cell in Nefarious's castle. Suffers from several allergies.

Voiced by: Jim Cummings.

  • Dumb Muscle: Drew effortlessly tricks him into saying or doing things that help him escape. He's so stupid, he mistakes most comments about his lack of intelligence for compliments.
  • Gas Mask Mooks: He will put on a gas mask the second time Drew tries to escape.
  • I'll Never Tell You What I'm Telling You!: He boasts that he is the best at keeping secrets, then he tells you all the secrets he's so great at guarding.
  • Messy Pig: He's a warthog like ogre, who also spreads his snot everywhere.
  • Our Ogres Are Hungrier: He called an ogre, even though he looks more like a Pig Man.
  • Pig Man: While he's called an ogre, he has warthog like attributes.
  • Plot Allergy: Exploiting his dust allergy is necessary to escape
  • Sneeze of Doom: He sneezes hard enough to propel himself backwards into a wall and knock himself unconscious.

Spike The Clown

A deranged clown that serves as Nefarious' court jester and is locked up in a padded dungeon. He loves to torture balloon animals and speaks in non-sequiturs.

Voiced by : Jeff Bennett.

  • Advertised Extra: Despite him being on the game's cover art, he's actually featured in one scene and is never seen again. He overall has little importance to the plot.
  • Ax-Crazy: He is easily set off and will violently confront anyone who makes a wrong move.
  • Being Tortured Makes You Evil: He was mentally messed with by Ms. Fortune for Nefarious' sick amusement, which is why he became what he is today.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Slightly Played for Drama, although there is still a lot of humor that comes out of it. His brain was fried by Ms. Fortune, driving him insane for Nefarious' amusement. Spike speaks mostly in Non Sequiturs, showing how detached he is from reality.
  • Large Ham: Like most clowns, he's loud and boisterous.
  • Knife Nut: He wields one against Drew, which triggers him turning into his toon self.
  • Mascot: He seems to have been intended to be the game's mascot, seeing as how is featured on the title screen and in most marketing materials for the game.
  • Monster Clown: Scary as heck and will be in your nightmares.
  • Non Sequitur: He speaks this way by default.
  • Slasher Smile: He sports a big, unnerving one that sends chills down one's spine.
  • Tragic Monster: Despite how scary he can be, he's only this way because his boss thought it was amusing to mess around with his brain. Even Drew who is very wary of him feels a bit of pity for him.

Real World

Sam Schmaltz

Drew's highly demanding and narrow-minded boss, who forces him to create a new batch characters for the Fluffy Fluffy Bun Bun show's tenth anniversary.

Played by: Ben Stein

  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul: He wears glasses and is just an unpleasant person to work for.
  • Greed: He cares more about milking the Fluffy Fluffy Bun Bun Show, rather than making anything of artistic value.
  • Hate Sink: He is a pushy, greedy, small-minded, and obnoxious executive, who cares more about making profit than a genuinely good show. He also puts Drew on a top time crunch, which puts him under great creative stress trying to think of new characters for the show. And when Drew shows him the idea of making Flux into a co-star with Bun Bun, he coldly rejects it and makes him go with his original demands of making more cutsey bunnies.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: Even if he was an ass about it, if you go against your boss' orders then you will be berated for it.
  • Jerkass: A really big one to Drew, who dreads working for him.
  • Mean Boss: He's arrogant, condescending and treats his sole cartoonist (who is responsible for his company's ten years of success) like utter shit. And at the end of the game he brutally shoots down Drew's idea to incorporate Flux into Fluffy's show.


How well does it match the trope?
