'The Amazing World of Gumball'



The Amazing World of Gumball is about a young cat attending school, dealing with his parents and friends. The cartoon features a variety of characters. Some are pastel-colored animals. Others are cut-outs from art supplies. Learn more about the main characters from The Amazing World of Gumball.


Gumball - The Amazing World of Gumball
Cartoon Network
Twelve-year-old Gumball is a charming cat with an incurable optimism. He's always positive, even when the fruits of his enthusiasm backfire spectacularly. Gumball will try anything once. No matter what happens as a result of his schemes, Gumball always bounces back, even if the only thing he learns from his mistakes is how to make more of them.


Darwin - The Amazing World of Gumball
Cartoon Network
Ten-year-old Darwin is a goldfish. He's also Gumball's best friend. Whatever Gumball is up to, Darwin's in on it too. While he's very loyal, Darwin may miss the nuances of some situations primarily because he's inexperienced in the ways of the world. Darwin used to be the family pet until he sprouted legs and joined Gumball's class at school. He still sleeps in a fishbowl, even though he's a little too big for it. He's innocent and gentle and he's always there to support Gumball when things are at their worst.


Anais - The Amazing World of Gumball
Cartoon Network
Although Anais is a four-year-old pink bunny, she looks after her older brother Gumball, Darwin and their dad. Anais is extremely intelligent. She pretty much looks after the whole family while mom's at work.

Dad - The Amazing World of Gumball
Cartoon Network
Dad is a giant pink rabbit and stay-at-home dad who is supposed to look after the kids, but spends most of his time playing video games and watching daytime TV. He's a well-intentioned, supportive dad and devoted to his kids but also just a little under-prepared for life.


Carrie - The Amazing World of Gumball
