Main characters[edit]

Mordecai[edit]

Mordecai (voiced by J. G. Quintel) is a blue jay who works as a groundskeeper at The Park. He has been best friends with Rigby ever since childhood, and together they are very lazy and constantly slack off at their jobs there. Mordecai is more conscientious, mature, and moral about his actions than Rigby is, which sometimes leads to his opposing Rigby when he is the cause of some kind of chaotic problem. However, Mordecai usually sides with his friend and the two generally stick together through their adventures. Like Rigby, Mordecai loves to play video games, but he is the better of the two. He can sometimes become caught up in his emotions, often letting them get the better of him. However, he is usually quick to apologize to others if he has hurt them and occasionally takes the lead in fixing a situation. He had a crush on Margaret Smith, a cardinal who worked as a waitress at a local coffee shop. Mordecai would often hang out with her, along with Rigby and Eileen Roberts, and made many attempts to try to start a relationship with her. The two finally begin to date in the fourth season until Margaret decides to leave for college, thus ending their relationship. In the episode "Camping Can Be Cool", it is revealed that he attended art school before being employed at The Park; however, he never finished the course due to his bad portrait skills, which were revealed in the episode "Bad Portrait".

Rigby[edit]

Rigby (voiced by William Salyers) is a brown raccoon who works as a groundskeeper at The Park. He has been best friends with Mordecai since childhood and slacks off even more than Mordecai does. Rigby is hyperactive, immature, and extremely mischievous, which sometimes puts him at odds with Mordecai. He mostly lives for simply having a good time and relaxing, which he sometimes achieves through selfish acts like lying or cheating. He has a bad habit of getting himself and others in trouble, often causing many of the chaotic and surreal problems that arise in The Park. Nevertheless, he is shown to be a good person deep down and sticks closely to his friends. Like Mordecai, Rigby loves to play video games, but he is the worse of the two. He is also shown to be the weakest of The Park workers, although he has surprised them on a few occasions. Rigby's lack of strength was a major plot point in the episode "One Pull Up," in which Rigby had to pass a company physical and keep his job by performing one pull up. He has a younger brother named Don, whose height and physique lead people to believe that he, not Rigby, is the older brother. Eileen Roberts, a female mole who works at a local coffee shop, previously alongside Margaret Smith, has strong feelings for Rigby and makes this very obvious. He originally did not reciprocate her feelings and harshly ignored her at some points, but he quickly begins to warm up to her and implies that he likes her, as well. Rigby is allergic to eggs, as evidenced in the episode "Eggscelent" when Rigby tried to eat a 12-egg omelet to win a trucker hat and went into a coma due to a severe allergic reaction.

Benson[edit]

Benson (voiced by Sam Marin) is a living gumball machine who works as the manager of The Park. He is frequently infuriated with Mordecai and Rigby due to their constant slacking and mischief. He is very hot-tempered and prone to fits of rage, often turning red whenever he yells or is extremely angry. Benson constantly threatens to fire them (sometimes along with their coworkers or just one of the duo) after saving the day or sometimes not understanding the ideas they came up with, although this almost never happens due to certain effects that counter these attempts and allows the two (or others he attempts to fire) to keep their jobs, but they may instead have to pay for their actions, even though it isn't always their fault. Despite always being at odds with them, Benson is ultimately friends with them after calming down a bit in the episode "Benson Be Gone" and the three gain more insight and trust with each other as the series progresses. In the episode "Think Positive", it is revealed that Benson's family members often yelled at each other when he was a child. His father instructed him that he would not get anything in his life if he did not yell for it. It has been implied that Benson was unhappy during his youth and did not enjoy his family's anger. He is skilled at stick hockey and has a strong love for music, proving to be an extremely skilled drummer in the episode "150 Piece Kit". Benson is also dating Audrey, a human woman who lives across from him in his apartment complex.

Pops Maellard[edit]

Pops Maellard (voiced by Sam Marin) is a cheerful, quirky, and naïve lollipop-shaped man who resides at the house in The Park. His father, Mr. Maellard, is the owner of The Park. Pops tends to be very ecstatic about everything, often exclaiming "Good show!" or "Jolly good show!" when he is happy about something. When something bad happens, he will instead say "Bad show." He carries small lollipops in his wallet, sincerely believing that they are real money, much to everyone's confusion. He is an upright gentleman who is very kind and well-mannered to everyone. He is also very sensitive, often becoming upset or crying if his feelings are hurt. He has strong interests in poetry, wrestling, music, nature, animals, and games. Despite being an elderly man, he is very childlike and is often oblivious to serious things around him. Because of this, the group is frequently looking after him, especially Benson. In the episode "Prank Callers", it is shown that Pops was once a more serious and mature man back in the 1980s. However, when Mordecai and Rigby had been sent back to that time and accidentally hit him with a golf cart, he is shown to have turned into his zany self.

Skips[edit]

Skips (voiced by Mark Hamill) is a yeti who works as a groundskeeper at The Park. He is the strongest and smartest of The Park workers and they almost always turn to him for help, as he usually knows how to solve the chaotic problems that arise in The Park, but he isn't always right. Whenever he is asked for help, he generally says, "I've seen this before", and then presents a solution. As his name suggests, he is always skipping rather than walking. He is a diligent worker and is very skilled at his job; however, he suffers from a lack of knowledge of computers and other kinds of newer technology, which was seen in the episode "Skips vs. Technology". Aside from this, he is very experienced and knowledgeable, as he is immortal and has been alive for hundreds of years. In the episode "Free Cake", it is revealed that he must perform a ceremonial dance every year on his birthday in order to renew his immortality. He explains the story of how he received his immortality in the episode "Skips' Story." He chose to become immortal in order to fight Klorgbane, an immortal bully who inadvertently caused the death of his girlfriend Mona, the only woman that Skips had ever loved. The Guardians of Eternal Youth provided Skips with his immortality, knowing that he was the only one capable of defeating Klorgbane with the Fists of Justice. Skips' birth name was Walks, but he changed it to Skips when he received his immortality because he and Mona would always skip when they were together. This is also the reason why he always skips instead of walking; he chose to do this in order to remember the times he and Mona shared for all his life.

Mitch "Muscle Man" Sorenstein[edit]

Mitch "Muscle Man" Sorenstein (voiced by Sam Marin) is a short, obese, and green-skinned man who works a groundskeeper at The Park. He is very erratic and immature, often pulling pranks and joking around. He enjoys telling "My mom!" jokes, botched attempts at "Your mom!" jokes, much to the annoyance of everyone except Hi Five Ghost, his best friend, and a few others outside The Park. Although he can be rude due to his ego, he is ultimately shown to be polite and caring toward his friends. He and Fives were fired in the episodes "Don" and "Under the Hood" but were rehired at the end. At times, he can burst out on a rampage if he is greatly angered. His father, Muscle Dad, enjoyed the same attitude for pranks and jokes, but died in the episode "Trucker Hall of Fame". His older brother, Muscle Bro (Real name John), is also seen throughout the series. Muscle Man originally shared a rivalry with Mordecai and Rigby throughout the first two seasons, but the three started to get along and treat each other as friends from the third season onward. His girlfriend, Starla, shares a similar appearance to him and the couple constantly disgust other people when they publicly kiss and show affection to each other. His real name was revealed to be Mitch Sorenstein in the episode "Muscle Woman". In the episode "Power Tower", it is revealed that he gained the nickname "Muscle Man" from his early years of bodybuilding and actually being in excellent physical condition, but he found that life very boring and gave it up.

Hi Five Ghost[edit]

Hi Five Ghost (voiced by Jeff Bennett in season one, then by J. G. Quintel from season two onward) is a small ghost with a hand extending from the top of his head who works as a groundskeeper at The Park. Hi Five Ghost is best friends with Muscle Man and frequently gives him high fives to accompany his jokes, as he genuinely finds most of Muscle Man's jokes amusing. Because of his name and appearance, he is frequently called by his nickname, "Fives". Hi Five Ghost rarely speaks throughout the first three seasons of the series, but he is given more dialogue from season four onward. His father was introduced in the episode "See You There", as well as his older brother, Low Five Ghost, who works as a police officer. In the episode "The Postcard", Hi Five Ghost reunited with a human girl named Celia whom he had befriended after waiting four years to receive a postcard from her.

Recurring characters[edit]

Thomas[edit]

Thomas (voiced by Roger Craig Smith) is a young goat who is an intern working at The Park. He is introduced in the episode "Exit 9B" where he obtained the job at The Park in order to receive extra credit points for college. Because of his lack of experience at The Park and residing as the newcomer, Thomas is often reproved by his coworkers, most notably by Muscle Man. Thomas is usually reluctant to be involved in the surreal and chaotic adventures that arise in The Park, often asking if he has to be part of the situation, to which they insist that he must. He is shown to be very close with his mother, often mentioning her and talking to her on the phone. Despite appearing hapless at times, Thomas remains very friendly with his coworkers and is appreciated by the group.

Margaret Smith[edit]

Margaret (voiced by Janie Haddad-Tompkins) is a female red robin who worked as a waitress at a local coffee shop. She was good friends with her former coworker, Eileen Roberts. Mordecai has a huge crush on Margaret and frequently found excuses to go to the coffee shop to see her. She has a cousin named John who has an artificial wooden leg. The rest of her family are all birds like her and Mordecai, except for her father Frank, a strong and stern human. Margaret returns Mordecai's feelings for her and the two begin to finally date in the fourth season finale; however, she reluctantly ends their relationship after receiving an acceptance letter from her dream college. Mordecai suffers greatly from their break up, but eventually moves on and he begins spending time with CJ.

Eileen Roberts[edit]

Eileen (voiced by Minty Lewis, a writer/storyboard artist for the series) is a shy and timid mole who works at a local coffee shop, previously alongside Margaret Smith. She has a crush on Rigby, but he initially found her annoying. She first appeared in the episode "Brain Eraser". She also appears in the episode "Do Me a Solid", in which Rigby learns of Eileen's crush on him (even though Rigby shows no interest in Eileen), though he goes along with it for a while. Since the episode "Camping Can Be Cool", Rigby has warmed up to Eileen. Rigby thought very highly of her and praised her actions throughout the episode. In the episode "Diary", Rigby admits that he finds Eileen to be attractive when she is not wearing her glasses, but it also reveals that she also can't see without them. In the episode "One Pull Up", Eileen helps Rigby train for his company physical and he shows his gratitude by hugging her (and crushing her due to his enlarged physique).

Audrey[edit]

Audrey (voiced by Courtenay Taylor) is Benson's girlfriend.

Starla Gutsmandottir[edit]

Starla (Muscle Woman) (voiced by Courtenay Taylor) is an obese, green woman similar in appearance to Muscle Man. She works at Icy & Hot Jewelry & Apparel. In the episode "Muscle Woman", she developed a crush on Mordecai and had previously dated two other people as indicated by a tattoo on her lower back. When Mordecai broke up with her, she became extremely angry, destroying everything in her path, including a helicopter. She got back together with Muscle Man after he expressed his feelings towards her at the end of the episode. Since then, Starla has appeared with Muscle Man in various episodes, including "Fancy Restaurant", "Pie Contest" and "Bald Spot".

Mr. Maellard[edit]

Mr. Maellard (voiced by David Ogden Stiers) is an elderly lollipop man who owns The Park and is also Pops' father. He first appeared in the episode "Dizzy". Maellard is very impatient towards Benson (similar to Benson's impatience towards Mordecai and Rigby) and Maellard blames Mordecai and Rigby's shenanigans on Benson (as he expects Benson to take responsibility for Mordecai and Rigby as park manager). He purposely mistakes Benson's name a lot in some of the episodes in which he appears (using "Ballbucket", "Beanbag", etc.). Maellard finally got Benson's name right (and started to respect him more as well) in the episode "Benson Be Gone" due to Benson's coming to his rescue when he was captured by Susan (a woman whom Mr. Maellard had hired as the park manager after demoting Benson and is later revealed to be a demon) and also gave Benson his old job back.

CJ (Cloudy Jane)[edit]

CJ (voiced by Linda Cardellini) is a cloud girl who first appeared in the episode "Yes Dude Yes", in which Mordecai started dating her after thinking Margaret was engaged. After learning that Margaret was not getting married, he almost immediately forgets about CJ, leading to an ugly break up at the coffee shop in which she revealed that she can transform into a deadly storm when really angry. After Margaret leaves town for college, CJ and Mordecai meet each other at the New Year's Eve dance in the episode "New Year's Kiss", unwittingly kissing each other at midnight. The following episode, "Dodge This", continues this story days after the kiss with CJ and Mordecai competing against each other in a dodgeball tournament. This leads to awkwardness between the two in the final round of the dodgeball tournament and they are forced to address their issues before the Intergalactic Dodgeball Council. They later agreed just to be friends. At the end of the episode "I Like You Hi", Mordecai asks CJ out and she agrees to go out with Mordecai after he broke up with Margaret. In the following episode, "Play Date", CJ and Mordecai plan to go out, but are interrupted by Death's 300-year-old son, Thomas. In the Season 5 finale "Real Date", Mordecai saves her life when the founder of Couple Corral McIntyre tries to get them to break up and they officially become a couple.

Baby Ducks[edit]

The Baby Ducks are a group of four ducks whom Mordecai and Rigby found in a fountain in the park in the episode "A Bunch of Baby Ducks". They have shown their ability to fuse together to form a giant, anthropomorphic, ducklike creature when they fist-pump simultaneously. They return in the episode "A Bunch of Full-Grown Geese" to help Mordecai and Rigby rid the park of the evil, titular geese who soon turn into a giant monster. The duo helped the baby ducks upgrade their giant form and succeeded in defeating the geese. They also appeared in "Exit 9B" where they helped fight the park worker's past villains in their giant form.

Guardians of Eternal Youth[edit]

The Guardians of Eternal Youth are a group of five infant-like beings for whom Skips must perform a ceremonial dance in order to maintain his immortality. Skips also attended school with them before they granted him his immortality. They also designed and built Skips' Fists of Justice, which allowed him to defeat Klorgbane the Destroyer (their evil brother) in the episodes "Fists of Justice" and "Skips' Story" and they seem to like cake. Mordecai and Rigby found out about this and because they accidentally injured Skips, they took over and defeated Klorgbane (but not before he killed one of the guardians), who vowed to return before he was sent flying away. They also appeared in "Exit 9B" where they help the park workers fight off their past villains.

Gareth "Gary"[edit]

Gary (voiced by Robin Atkin Downes) is a friend of Skips who went to school with Skips and the Guardians of Eternal Youth.

Low Five Ghost[edit]

Low Five Ghost (voiced by Roger Craig Smith) is a ghost who is High Five Ghost's brother. He works as a police officer.

God of Basketball[edit]

The God of Basketball (voiced by Carl Weathers) is a basketball/human hybrid who is also known as the Basketball Coach King. He apparently lives within the moon and rides in a custom designed white flying Cadillac Escalade. The God of Basketball then quickly befriends Mordecai and Rigby in "Slam Dunk" which leads him into offering them to learn how to play basketball well. When that does not go according to plan, he uses his powers to instantly grant both of them great basketball powers. The God of Basketball momentarily changes sides when he is forced to play with Muscle Man against the duo for computer rights for life. The God of Basketball later appears in "Exit 9B" as a protagonist Skips summons to help save The Park and he also appears in "Bank Shot".

Techmo[edit]

Techmo (voiced by Steven Blum) was once a human named Samson until he became a technomancer cyborg. He first appeared in "Skips vs. Technology" to help Mordecai, Rigby, and Skips solve a dangerous computer error named Error 220 (otherwise known as "Doom Ma Geddon") but eventually became possessed by it, but the trio were able to defeat the virus and free Techmo by destroying the computer. In "Exit 9B," Techmo is among the characters that are summoned by Skips to help fight Garrett Bobby Ferguson and his villain allies. He also appears in "A Skips in Time" where he helps the past Skips return to his time in order to save the present Skips from dying.

Villains[edit]

Death[edit]

Death (voiced by Julian Holloway in a cockney accent) is a grim-reaper who tried to take the immortal life of Skips during his first appearance in the episode "Over The Top". He also tried to take Muscle Man's soul twice in the episodes "Dead at Eight" and "Last Meal" and even tried to take everyone's souls in "Skips Strikes". However, he also helped the groundskeepers defeat Garret Bobby Ferguson's villains in the episode "Exit 9B". Death has a son named Thomas (not to be confused with the park intern of the same name), a 300-year-old demon. He later helped them retrieve Maellard's guitar in "Guitar of Rock".

Garrett Bobby Ferguson[edit]

Garrett Bobby Ferguson (voiced by Sam Marin) is a giant floating head from outer space who bears a striking resemblance to the video gamer Billy Mitchell. He first appeared in the episode "High Score" and at one point was the universal record holder for an arcade game called "Broken Bonez" before he exploded in a fit of rage when Mordecai and Rigby beat his high score. In the episode "Exit 9B", it was revealed that he had a son named Garrett Bobby Ferguson Jr. (voiced by Roger Craig Smith), who attempted to bring back his father along with other deceased villains to have their revenge, yet The Park workers and their allies managed to send Garrett Bobby Ferguson and the other villains back into the afterlife, taking his son with him.

Gene[edit]

Gene (voiced by Kurtwood Smith) is Benson's rival who appears to be a green vending machine. He is in charge of a nearby park named East Pines. Gene started two separate prank wars to destroy Benson's park for reasons never explained, but was thwarted both times by Muscle Man. He makes a reappearance in the half-hour special "The Christmas Special", but as a protagonist, helping Benson out willingly due to his own love of the holiday of Christmas and it is also revealed that he has a family. He also makes a cameo appearance in the episode "Dodge This", in which he and his workers are a team and compete against Benson's team ("Benson's Ballers"). He made another appearance in "Thomas Fights Back" where he steals the park's statue, but the park gang managed to take back the statue with Thomas's help.

Capicola Gang[edit]

The Capicola Gang is a group of anthropomorphic animatronic animals from The Fun Fun Zone, a restaurant that became corrupted after The Park workers won a pair of fuzzy dice (which, unbeknownst to them, had diamonds in them) for Pops' birthday in the episode "Fuzzy Dice". They attempted to escape with the dice when the park workers won them, which leads to a car chase to the harbor. After Louie exposes their crime, they attempted to kill them to take back the dice only for them to be destroyed by the FBI. They reappear in the episode "Steak Me Amadeus", in which it is revealed that they survived the battle and plotted revenge on the park workers for foiling their evil crime and sold fake Amadeus Dollars to Pops, which Mordecai used to pay for a date with Margaret Smith at the titular restaurant. They appear at the same restaurant and are taken into custody for selling the fake Amadeus Dollars and beginning a gun battle between them, the park workers, and two FBI agents until the restaurant's owner shoots bombs at them, destroying them once and for all.
