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:
  • Deadpan Snarker: When someone earns his annoyance (such as Snout) expect him to make some good snide comments.
  • Hammerspace: His coat, which is where he keeps all the inventory items.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Red Oni to Drew's Blue Oni. Flux has much more of an attitude.

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.


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 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.


Cutopia

Bricabrac

The royal engineer. He's very forgetful.

Voiced by Corey Burton.


Carecrow

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.


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.


Fingers

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.

Footman

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.

  • 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.


Zanydu

Jim

A bulldog who runs Jim's Gym.

Voiced by Jeff Bennett.

  • The Ahnold: He's a bodybuilder with an Austrian accent.
  • Jerk Jock: His great physical strength lets him get away with being rude to Drew and Flux.
  • Pintsized Powerhouse: Despite being quite short, he's not lacking in the physical department.


Toilet Sentry

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

Voiced by Jeff Bennett.

  • The Determinator: He will never leave his post until the clock signals the end of his shift. The clock has been broken for years.
  • 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.

  • 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.
  • 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


Bouncer

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

Voiced by Tress MacNeille.


Robot Maker

A robot who wishes to destroy all organic life.

Voiced by Jeff Bennett.


Seedy

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.
  • 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.

Snout

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.
  • 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.
