Twelve-year-old Gumball is utterly charming with an incurable optimism. He’s always positive, even when the fruits of his enthusiasm backfire spectacularly. Gumball has an epic flair for misadventure and will try anything once. No matter what happens as a result of his schemes, Gumball always bounces back, even if the only thing he learns from his mistakes is how to make more of them.
Ten-year-old Darwin is Gumball’s best friend. Whatever Gumball is up to, Darwin is in on it too. While he’s very loyal, Darwin may miss the nuances of some situations primarily because he’s inexperienced in the ways of the world, he’s still a goldfish afterall. Darwin used to be the family pet until he sprouted legs and joined Gumball’s class at school. He still sleeps in a fishbowl, even though he’s a little too big for it. He’s a member of the family and Darwin idolizes Gumball. He’s innocent, naïve, sweet and gentle and he’s always there to revive Gumball’s optimism when things are at their worst.
Although Anais is four-years-old, she looks after her older brother Gumball, Darwin and their dad. Anais is extremely intelligent; don’t underestimate this little pink bunny. She pretty much looks after the whole family while mom’s at work.
Mom – Nicole
Mom is the breadwinner, the pants-wearer and the person who sorts things out. She’s the picture of a perfect mother, giving attention to Anais, treating Darwin like her own child and encouraging Gumball. She’s also the family pit-bull, defending her brood at every turn. And anyone who dare threatens the ones she loves, watch out!
Dad – Richard
Dad is a giant pink rabbit and stay-at-home dad who looks after the kids, while spending most of his time playing video games and watching daytime TV. He’s a well-intentioned, supportive dad and devoted to his kids but also just a little under-prepared for life.
