Characters[edit]

  • Angelmouse - A mouse who is an angel. He lives on earth with his friend Quilly, and receives missions to do good deeds from "You-know-who" (God). He has wings and a "thingamajig" (halo), which slips, wobbles or even disappears when he misbehaves or neglects his mission.
  • Quilly - A bird, who gives Angelmouse advice and prompts him to start or continue his missions.
  • Elliemum - A sensible, kind and cheerful elephant who highly regards Angelmouse as a 'real angel'.
  • Baby Ellie - Elliemum's baby elephant, who likes to play and join in fun.
  • Oswald - A duck, who loves to speed especially on roller-skates. He often says "No Brakes!" as he whizzes by.
  • Spencer - A dotty teddy bear, who frequently drives a car.
  • Little Petal - A cute rag doll, who runs a little shop.
  • Hutchskin - A rabbit, who stays in his home most of the time.
