Characters[edit]

  • Broken Bear (voiced by Scott McNeil and later Colin Murdock) - A bear whose tagging by wildlife authorities placed him under the delusion that he was abducted by aliens. As a result, Broken Bear expects the aliens to return so he can be taken again and serve them as their leader.
  • Cambridge Kitty (voiced by Colin Murdock) - An alleyway psychologist, offering his scientific opinion to whoever comes for his guidance.
  • Cutie Snoot (voiced by Kathleen Barr) - This little kitten has pink fur, appearing cute yet with an evil streak on her.
  • Dander (voiced by David Kaye) - A cat who was used to "the good life," lives with a woman who works in politics and foreign relations. Anything outside his kitty cat world is approached with a naïveté that gets him into trouble. Usually seen with his pal, Yawp, they are on a continuous saga to get back home after falling off a moving truck.
  • Dine & Dash (voiced by Scott McNeil and David Kaye and later Peter Kelamis and Lee Tockar) - Two streetwise alley cats with matching black and white "prison" stripes, Dine is the fast talking leader and Dash the lovable dope. The two usually go to great lengths to get food from stealing to conning.
  • Flouncie (voiced by Kathleen Barr) - A large dog with a self-image problem and wants a playmate, seeing herself to be dainty despite being strong enough to unknowingly kill any unfortunate animal she befriends.
  • Gasper (voiced by Scott McNeil) - Tiny Head's pet gold fish and victim of his friend's unintentionally harmful tokens of kindness.
  • Goosers (voiced by Scott McNeil) - A consummate yellow lab who is loyal and trustworthy. He usually has to deal with protecting his owner Claude, or something the man holds dear, from some strange occurrence.
  • Ird the Bird (voiced by Scott McNeil) - A blue jay with a deep voice, Ird makes a cameo in most episodes and serves as an antagonist in some.
  • Jack (voiced by Bill Kopp) - An intellectual terrier with glasses, taking them off while in the presence of his owner.
  • Mister Mewser (voiced by Bill Kopp) - A shut-in house cat with tuxedo markings who lives in a huge Victorian mansion, the fate of its owners never revealed. Seeing himself more as a sophisticated human, Mewser keeps mice as indentured servants and enjoys watching old Westerns.
  • Sinister Squirrel (voiced by Scott McNeil) - A crazy squirrel identified by a chunk of fur missing from his tail. Known as an enemy to Goosers and Ird.
  • Smidgeon - He's Mister Mewser's little mouse butler. He and Mewser like each other more than either would like to admit.
  • Tiny Head (voiced by Colin Murdock) - A full-grown tabby cat with a kitten-sized head, Tiny Head is an eternal optimist whose talking often makes him oblivious to everything around him.
  • Von Ripper (voiced by Scott McNeil) - A shark-like guard dog with a silvery gray coat, and a mouth full of nasty sharp teeth. He usually serves as an antagonist most of the time.
  • Yawp (voiced by Scott McNeil) - Although this feisty little puppy can't talk, he's definitely not short on personality.
  • Zippy the Greyhound (voiced by Lee Tockar) - This retired racing dog is shell-shocked from too many years on the track. The littlest sound causes him to bolt, usually into something painful.
