  • Advertisement:
  • Cartoon Creature: Every single character in this series. However, you can make out the normal animal features of at least a few of the characters. Wubbzy even insists that he isn't an animal when he was interviewed that one time.
    Wubbzy: I'm not an animal, I'm Wubbzy!
  • Four-Fingered Hands: Every anthropomorphic character.
  • Vague Age: Most, if not all, characters' ages remain unknown.note 
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: While the characters are vaguely based on real animals (for example, Wubbzy being based on a gerbil), you really wouldn't expect a rabbit to be pink or a bear to be purple in Real Life.

Main four


Voice actor: Grey DeLisle

The titular main character of the show. According to the show's bible, he represents the pure child who solves problems with his child-like simplicity and sees the world through untainted eyes. He loves to play with his friends. He is also the only one of the main four with a tail.

  • Affectionate Nickname: "Little buddy" and "Wubbster" are the two nicknames Widget would sometimes call Wubbzy.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Wubbzy: In Wubbzy's Big Idea.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: He sometimes talks to the audience.
  • Cartoony Tail: He has a prehensile, apparently shock-absorbent tail that either works as an extra hand or a bouncy spring. It is also mentioned a bunch of times to be highly flexible.
    "Wubbzy lives in a tree, he likes to play play play! He's got a bendy tail and he likes it that way!"
  • Catchphrase: "Wow" is his favorite word, as he said it a lot of times, usually as a greetingnote  or a form of amazement. He also used the word to greet the viewers in the Theme Tune.
  • Cheerful Child: He is very cheery and playful.
  • Does Not Like Spam: According to a rare interview, he isn't old enough to like brussel sprouts.
  • Evil Lawyer Joke: Wubbzy considered dressing up as a lawyer for Halloween to scare poeple.
  • Funny Animal: He slightly resembles a gerbil.
  • Keet: See Cheerful Child above.
  • Large Ham: Right when he introduces himself during the Theme Tune, you know he's gonna exhibit this.
  • Me's a Crowd: Too Many Wubbzy's
  • Partially Civilized Animal: He was this in The Tail of Flopsy, Mopsy, and Ted, lthough back then he was Mopsy.
  • Prehensile Tail: His tail can do including but not limited to:
    • Wrapping around objects
    • Being used as a Spring Coil to bounce himself a la Tigger.
    • And it's even focused on in A Tale of Tails.
  • Series Continuity Error: In Perfecto Party, Wubbzy was shown to be allergic to marshmallows. In every other episode where Wubbzy is shown eating a marshmallow, there's no allergic reaction.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Anything that has doodleberries in it. He also likes grapity-grape juice.


Voice actor: Lara Jill Miller

The Gadgeteer Genius with rabbit-like ears and the owner of her own fix-it shop. Widget seems to be the "go-do-it-now" type of person. When she sees a problem she can solve, she either introduces her friends to a machine she designed for such situation, or she sets to work on building a new invention. However, no matter how simple the problem may be, she tends to build some sort of overly-complicated invention. She speaks with a Southern accent.

  • Absentee Actor: She doesn't appear in Who's That Girl?, New Kid on the Block, and What a Card.
  • Catchphrase: When she sees a problem she can solve, she says "No problemo!," and whenever her machines malfunction, she says, "That's not supposed to happen," or, "That wasn't supposed to happen."
  • Funny Animal: Going by the long ears, she kind of looks like a rabbit.
  • Gadgeteer Genius
  • Inexplicably Tailless: Played in the series, but subverted when she was first designed as "Flopsy"note .
  • Pink Is Feminine: She is pink.
  • Robot Me: In Gidget the Super-Robot, Widget makes a robot twin.
  • Rube Goldberg Device: She does make overly-complicated machines for something as trivial as straightening a picture frame.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The Tomboy to Daizy's Girly Girl.
  • Tomboy with a Girly Streak: Despite the fact that she likes to invent gadgets, she also likes girly things such as ballet.
  • Trope 2000: Widget names her inventions with the number "3000" tacked onto the end.
  • Unknown Relative: To the audience. In Once Upon a Wubbzy, she states that the pickleberry bush she received was from her cousin, named Ratchet. However, they were only mentioned and have yet to be shown on-screen.
  • White Bunny: Colorfully subverted.


Voice actor: Carlos Alazraqui

  • A Day in the Limelight: He's the star of the episode Mr. Cool. Walden is also the only character that was able to star in his own music video.

  • Bookworm: Books happen to be part of his specialties. Wubbzy stated in an interview that he got smart through reading books.

  • Half-Dressed Cartoon Animal: He normally does not wear any pants.
  • Funny Animal: It is unclear what Walden is even meant to be, though The Other Wiki says that he is a bear.
