The Wuzzles features
a variety of short, rounded animal characters (each
called a Wuzzle). Each is a roughly even, and colorful,
mix of two different animal species (as the theme
song mentions, "...livin' with a split personality"),
and all the characters sport wings on their backs.
All of the Wuzzles live on the Isle of Wuz. Double
species are not limited to the Wuzzles themselves.
From the appleberries they eat to the telephonograph
in the home, nearly everything on Wuz is mixed together
in the same way the Wuzzles are.
(voiced by Brian Cummings): Half bumblebee and half
lion, Bumblelion is a short, squat orange furred creature
with a pink mane, fuzzy antennae, a lion's tail, small
insect wings, and horizontal brown stripes up his
tummy. He lives in a beehive, likes sports, is courageous,
and has interest in Butterbear, below.
(voiced by Kathleen Helppie-Shipley): Half
bear and half butterfly, Butterbear is mostly bear
in appearance. She has yellow fur with a white tummy,
small wings, and short antennae with flowers on their
ends. She is a keen gardener who is gentle & patient
despite the crazy adventures of her friends.
(voiced by Henry Gibson): Half elephant and
half kangaroo. One of the larger Wuzzles, Eleroo is
purple, with the body shape and tail of a kangaroo
and an elephant's trunk and ears. He has a horizontally
striped pouch (despite the fact that pouches are found
only on female kangaroos).
(voiced by the late Bill Scott): Half moose, half
harp seal. Moosel is a small Wuzzle with the antlers
and snout of a moose and he has flippers at the most
bottom of his body. Moosel has a vivid imagination,
which makes him believe in monsters.
(voiced by Jo Anne Worley): Half rabbit, half hippopotamus.
Hoppo, as she is called by her friends, is a Wuzzle
who is a hippopotamus complete with a rabbit's ears,
buck teeth, and cotton tail. She loves to sing and
act. Hoppo is a pushy demanding diva, her often pushing
the others around or aside, but she can be sweet.
Hoppo has a crush on Bumblelion, but Bumblelion has
his heart set on Butterbear, which makes Hoppo furious
and dissatisfied. Despite the fact that she is part
hippo, she is as dainty as a gazelle. Like Moosel,
she is often annoyed by Rhinokey and she always tries
to get away from him.
(voiced by Alan Oppenheimer): Half rhinoceros and
half monkey. Rhinokey is a Wuzzle who has a rhino-like
snout with a horizontal-stripped horn, pink fur, and
rhino-like legs. He is in a posture that is very much
like a monkey's. Rhinokey is a fun-loving happy-go-lucky
prankster. He loves to play practical jokes. He can
be obnoxious, but is still loyal to his friends. Rhinokey
is best friends with Bumblelion and (in Rhinokey's
(also voiced by Bill Scott): Half Tiger and half Raccoon.
Tycoon is the rich kid of Wuz. He owns a money tree.
(also voiced by Alan Oppenheimer): Half crocodile,
half dinosaur; The main villain of the show. He can
be referred to as either "king Croc", "Crocasaurous",
or just simply Croc (also, his name is not spelled
"Crock" with a k). Croc is a no-good ignoramus and
does anything to get what he wants. He always wants
the best of what the Wuzzles have.
(also voiced by Bill Scott): Half boar, half rat,
Croc's sidekick. Brat sputters and babbles and grunts
in his speech, but Croc understands what he is saying.
Flizard (also voiced by Brian Cummings): Half frog,
half lizard, Croc's other sidekick. Flizard is lacking
in intelligence, but loyal to Croc.
