Characters[edit]

Main family[edit]

  • BG (French: Gudule) is 7[4] and later 8[13] years old. BG is curious about everything around her and plunges head-on into adventures and escapades. She's a natural leader amongst her friends, even though she can be slightly bossy at times. She's also a bit of a tomboy, and loves to hang out with her best friends Gad and Alex in their tree house. BG is protective of her little brother George, but can lose patience with him too; especially when he insists on playing with her and her "grownup" friends all the time.
  • George (French: Gaston) is BG's adorable[citation needed] younger brother. George looks up to his older sister and always[citation needed] wants to play with her and her friends, especially in the tree house. George tries to be like BG at times, copying her words and actions, and her approval is very important to him. Sensitive and sweet-natured, George is less self-confident than BG,[citation needed] but his insights into people and situations can sometimes be surprising. He is 3[14] and later 4[9] years old, and watches a TV program called "Fishy the Fish".
    • Albert (nicknamed Albie[15]) is George's beloved pet hamster who travels around perched on George's head.
  • Dad (French: Papa) is named Jeffrey[16] Baxter[17] Good-natured and easygoing, Dad is the local vet. He's aware that BG has him wrapped around her finger. He usually says "yes" to anything while watching TV and on the rare occasion when he says "no," a few tears will work wonders. Still, Dad has his breaking point, and when he makes up his mind, no one can change it.
  • Mum (French: Maman) aka Charlotte[citation needed] is mother of BG and George who works from the house as a freelance journalist who writes articles.[18] She is always busy trying to juggle her career while looking after her family and her younger[citation needed] sister. She's warm, sympathetic and more understanding of her daughter than BG realizes, but she is tough. She doesn't lose her temper very often, but when she does, even BG runs for cover.
  • Aunt Alice: Aunt Alice is Charlotte's (younger?) sister. She spends a lot of time at BG's house and loves to spend time with BG and George and do projects with them when their parents are out. She's BG's favorite babysitter.[citation needed]

Others[edit]

  • Brittany Ann (French: Marie-Aglae) is BG's wealthy next-door neighbor - and sometimes nemesis or rival. Rich, spoiled,[citation needed] and pretty,[citation needed] Brittany-Ann thinks she's very special and loves to brag to BG and to her friends. She constantly competes for attention from the other kids. Underneath Brittany-Ann's spoiled persona, she hides a glimpse of insecurity. Her vain preoccupation with her looks is in marked contrast to BG's tomboyish approach to life.
    • Brittany Ann's mom is named Mrs. McAdams[citation needed]
    • Doodlebug is Brittany-Ann's pet dog. She sometimes shortens her names to Doodles.[19] Closed captions misspells the nickname as "Doddles".
  • Alex (French: Bertrand) is one of BG's best friends. He has blond hair and wears a shirt with green and white stripes and wears glasses. He often hangs out with BG in the treehouse.
  • Gad Mansour (French: Cheb) is (along with Alex) one of BG's best friends, but he's a little shy and quieter than both BG and Alex. But BG knows she can always count on him to help find a solution to any problem. Gad is a science whiz, loves studying and inventing things. He lives with his grandmother and father, who owns a local grocery store.
  • Terri (French: Florence) babysits for BG and George when their aunt is not available. She's studying at college but she loves to spend time with the kids. She especially likes dancing with BG, who has learned a lot of steps from her. Terri also likes baking cakes for BG and George and especially loves it when they show her their drawings.
  • Ouma Mansour (French: Djeda) is Gad's grandmother, who lives with him and his Dad. She takes care of all the housework and cooking for them, and she tends a vegetable garden behind the family grocery store. BG likes to seek Ouma out when she needs help.
  • Billy (French: Paulo) is (at 9 or 10-years-old,[citation needed]) is the oldest in his and BG's class, and so he thinks the rest are all babies. Billy is great at skating and he likes to show off his skills to BG and all her friends. He also has a crush on Brittany-Ann. Billy is Kayla's brother.[20]
  • Kayla (French: Carla) is Billy's sister.[20] She is also Brittany-Ann's best friend and she is often with her. She often does everything Brittany-Ann tells her to, much to BG's disdain.
    • Titus is Kayla's female hamster who resembles George's hamster, Albert, and sometimes they can't tell them apart.
  • Mr. Ahmed[21] Mansour is Gad's father and Ouma's son.
  • Robbie (French: Thomas) is Alex's older brother. He and Terri are often together.
  • Mrs. Martin a math and science teacher who is also the homeroom teacher for BG, Gad, Alex, Brittany-Ann, Kayla & Billy.
  • Mr. Tyrone Grant is the school principal who also teaches gym and occasionally substitutes for BG, Gad, Alex, Brittany-Ann, Kayla, and Billy. He has a dog named Mitzi. He also runs a toy drive in "Show and Tell".
  • Ian is George's friend.
  • Alex's dad the father of Alex and probably also Robbie.

ASK BG shorts[edit]

Miss BG Vignette episodes are 2-minute “Lessons” or “Tips” given to the audience by BG. These ‘tips’ are always factually correct and have underlying social development themes; the humour lies in how BG executes them. As we know with BG, things never go exactly the way she plans. BG will speak directly to camera, addressing the audience. Her TV lessons will interact with a future website, which kids can then access to receive further info.
