Beavers[edit]

Character Work Notes
Beaver Franklin A beaver who is a friend of Franklin. Often overly sure of herself, Beaver sometimes shows hints of bossiness, boisterousness, and sarcasm, but is certainly one of the more intelligent of the group
Daggett The Angry Beavers Voiced by Richard Steven Horvitz. Nicknamed as "Dag" and "Daggy", he is Norbert's younger brother by four minutes. Hyperactive and immature, Daggett has a habit of over-emphasized and manic motions and a potent penchant for name-calling.
Handy Happy Tree Friends Handy is an orange beaver with unexplained amputated arms (in spite of his name). The stumps are covered with bandages. He wears a tool belt and a yellow worker's helmet.
Munchy Beaver PB&J Otter Munchy is known in particular for two things—his semi-obsession with wood and his nervous behavior, often lacking self-confidence.
Norbert The Angry Beavers Voiced by Nick Bakay. A.K.A. "Norb"/"Norby", he is Daggett's laid-back older brother. Generally well-spoken and intelligent, Norbert is a highly sarcastic beaver and can do great feats of impeccable engineering with aplomb and without explanation. While he is frequently manipulative of his younger brother and just as often condescending he shows great concern and love for Daggett, constantly soliciting and imposing hugs on the less receptive sibling.
