Meet the Characters

/de/cache/shows/15/char_maxruby-max.jpg Max

Max is a three-and-a-half-year old bundle of bunny energy. Max doesn’t talk a lot or go to school yet, but that doesn’t stop him from turning the tables on Ruby and cheerfully getting his way. Max loves his sister but will never do something just because she wants him to.

/de/cache/shows/15/char_maxruby-ruby.jpg Ruby

Ruby is a seven-year-old bunny. She is very smart and extremely organized. She is a second-grader who loves being in charge and believes she is the perfect bunny to help her little brother Max grow up right. She adores her brother.

/de/cache/shows/15/char_mike.jpg Mike

I’m a knight-in-training! I go on a mission every day with my dragons Sparkie and Squirt. I ride my speedy horse Galahad all over the kingdom on adventures! Sometimes I make mistakes along the way but whenever that happens then it’s time to be a knight and do it right, and I fix everything up.

/de/cache/shows/15/char_squirt.jpg Squirt

I am one of Mike’s dragon friends. I’m the small one who can breathe water. Not every dragon can do that! Oh! And I can fly, which comes in handy on Mike’s missions but I don’t like to fly too far away from Mike and Sparkie.

/de/cache/shows/15/char_trollee.jpg Trollee

Being a troll is a fun life – I live in a cave with my Ma and my Pa. We sing, cook, play tag in the caves and love to look for food in the Tall Tree Woods! Sometimes, I get to practice knightly things with Mike in the arena and I even get to go on a few missions. Mike is a good friend.

/de/cache/shows/15/char_backyardigans-pablo.jpg Pablo

Pablo is an energetic and enthusiastic penguin. Sometimes his excitement can overwhelm him–making him the character most likely to run in a circle flapping his flippers. He may not be the most agile or graceful of the friends, but he’s probably the most determined and enthusiastic.

/de/cache/shows/15/char_backyardigans-Uniqua.jpg Uniqua

Uniqua is a one-of-a-kind character with an adventurous nature. With her purple skin, pink spots and dainty antennae, she doesn’t look like any other creature on the planet. She is sweet and graceful, but she can also be funny, a little mischievous and quite the daredevil.

/de/cache/shows/15/char_backyardignas-Tyrone.jpg Tyrone

Tyrone is an easy-going, sensible young moose, who is also Pablo’s best friend. Tyrone is a deep thinker, which may make him seem a master of the obvious sometimes. But he always enjoys a challenge because he knows, in his heart, that he is equal to it and he’ll find a way to figure it out.

/de/cache/shows/15/char_Franklin-franklin.jpg Franklin

Franklin is fun-loving and a great friend to everyone he meets. He’s kind, considerate and he’s always there to lend a hand or a sympathetic ear. Even though he sometimes struggles to do the right thing, Franklin can always rely on his parents and friends to help him find the right path!
