Characters[edit]

Main characters[edit]

  • Timmy the Tooth (performed by Kevin Carlson) - The main protagonist of the series. He is an adventurous tooth that lives with his best friend Brushbrush and is prone to burst into song.
  • Brushbrush (performed by Todd Mattox) - Timmy's pet toothbrush who acts like a dog. He whispers or "bristles" his words, although Timmy can understand him unlike the other characters. Brushbrush wears a collar and growls like an angry dog when provoked. He has the tendency to tickle Timmy often by licking his face.
  • Bubbles Gum (performed by Cheryl Blaylock) - Timmy's blue-colored friend is always ready to help Timmy as well as go on an adventure. She tends to take lead of things.
  • Ms. Flossie (performed by Michael Earl) - A cowgirl of sorts who is constantly having a good time. Despite her name, she has a blobishlike appearance.
    • Waxie - Flossie's unicorn hobby horse who is quite amusing....especially when she tries to eat the daisies.
  • Sidney Cyclops (performed by Bruce Lanoil) - A one-eyed male monster and Timmy's friend who wants to become the greatest paperboy in the world. He is very younger than Timmy and looks up to his best friend. He got to star in the episode "An Eye For a Tooth".
  • Annette Bruner Prower (performed by Christine Papelexis) - Timmy's orange-gold skinned friend is exactly a ditz, but always there for her friends. Her other name is also Full of Jello, her general middle and last names are Bruner and Prower.
  • Johnny Paste (performed by Allan Trautman) - A large, muscular, tube of toothpaste who is another one of Timmy's friends. He is well-meaning, but not all that bright.
  • Mr. Wisdom (performed by Phil Baron) - An old wisdom tooth who lives up on Wisdom Mountain. He gives advice to Timmy and his friends when they need it.

Supporting characters[edit]

  • Sunny the Sun (performed by Allan Trautman in most episodes, Phil Baron in "Malibu Timmy") - A hot and smiling sun that wears sunglasses.
  • Leggs O'Many (performed by Todd Mattox) - A cool piano-playing octopus.

Villains[edit]

  • The Cavity Goon (performed by James Murray) - The main antagonist of the series. The Cavity Goon (otherwise known as Goonius Nemesis III) is a disgusting sight....a green creature covered with warts and a mouth full of decayed sharp teeth. He wears clothes that appear to be made of ripped-up leaves and is constantly bothering Timmy and his friends. In the episode "Lost My Brush," he even tried to kidnap Timmy by using the kidnapped Brushbrush to lure him in an attempt to turn him over to the Tooth Fairy for money.
    • Ms. Sweety (performed by Dina Fraboni) - The Cavity Goon's only sidekick. She is an enormous mint candy who always joins her boss on his evil plots.
  • The Gingivitis Gang - A group of creatures who are the secondary antagonists of the series. Much exactly evil like the Cavity Goon, and mean and plain bad. They spend most of their time looking for trouble and harassing Timmy and his friends. Despite antagonizing Timmy and his friends, the Gingivitis Gang would sometimes have to side with Timmy to stop the Cavity Goon (as seen in some episodes).
    • Leo (performed by Phil Baron) - The red-horned, lavender-haired, blue-skinned leader of the Gingivitis Gang.
    • Kay (performed by Bruce Lanoil) - The female bird-like member of the Gingivitis Gang with pumpkin skin and red hair.
