Plot[edit]

The series follows a New York capo (Jimmy Falcone) who moves to Regina, Saskatchewan to join the Witness Protection Program because he kills his mob boss.[4][5]

Cast[edit]

  • Jimmy Falcone (MacDougall) voiced by Tony Nappo - The man who rats out his former mob members to the FBI and has his family relocated to Regina, Saskatchewan via witness protection. He consistently calls the city "Vagina" (amongst many other malapropisms) as opposed to Regina and works for the Regina Tourism Office. His ill-fated attempts to meld his mobster lifestyle with the Canadian way drives many of the plots of the series.
  • Cookie Falcone (MacDougall) voiced by Jacqueline Pillon - The sensible wife of Jimmy Falcone (MacDougall). She loves her children but hates Uncle Cheech due to him being the reason their family had to move in Canada.
  • Uncle Cheech Falcone (MacDougall) voiced by Chuck Shamata - Jimmy's uncle and the reason the Falcone family is in witness protection.
  • Theresa Maria Falcone (MacDougall) voiced by Emilie-Claire Barlow - The oldest daughter of Jimmy and Cookie. She is a sixteen year old, and incredibly ditzy, often using her looks to gain favour with the boys of her school.
  • Peter "Petey" Frampton Falcone (MacDougall) voiced by Danny Smith - The only son and middle child of Jimmy and Cookie. He is a straight A student, eco-friendly activist and pacifist. His personality contrasts with that of his family.
  • Gina Falcone (MacDougall) voiced by Linda Kash - The youngest daughter of Jimmy and Cookie. She is seven years old, and takes after her father and uncle in her mobster mentality.
  • Special agent Strait McCool voiced by Ted Atherton - A well-meaning and friendly RCMP agent assigned to oversee the Falcone (MacDougall) family, and an ever-present thorn in Jimmy's side whenever the latter attempts to pull off a scheme.
