Characters[change | change source]

Main[change | change source]

  • Zooter (voiced by Janet James) is the series' protagonist. She is a pink pig whose name is a compound of "zoo" or "zip" and "scooter". Zooter speaks with a UK accent and is the jungle messenger.
  • Ellyvan (voiced by Billy West) is a blue elephant van who carries the deliveries around the jungle. He is the biggest animal in the jungle and Zooter's best friend. His name is a made-up compound word of elephant and van. He can suck improbable quantities of liquids up his trunk and spray them distances of up to half a mile or more. He speaks with a US accent.
  • Bungo (voiced by Keith Wickham) is a yellow bunny with brown ears who loves to make signs and put them all over the jungle. He is very good at Geography and knows the jungle better than anyone. He is also the only wheeler that is good at jumping, being able to leap many times his own height into the air. Despite officially being a bunny, Bungo has a long, raccoon-like tail with brown stripes. He speaks with a UK accent.

Recurring[change | change source]

  • Taxicrab (voiced by Jess Harnell) is a red crab that loves to dance and makes the greatest smoothies in the jungle. His name derives from a Taxicab, and he is the only wheeler that can drive sideways (possibly because of the sideways walk attributed to crabs). Even though Toadhog is often impatient, Taxicrab tolerates him the most. He speaks with a Mexican accent.
  • Carla (voiced by Laraine Newman) is an orange koala who owns a grocery shop.
  • Crocker (voiced by Keith Wickham) is a green crocodile fire chief with a lisp who wears a yellow helmet with a red flashing light on top. He has some skills in gardening and knows how to make compost.
  • Hippobus (voiced by Amanda Symonds) is a yellow hippopotamus school bus, who usually carries The Beetlebugs to school. Her name derives from a Hippie Bus – usually a redecorated Volkswagen Bus. She speaks with a Jamaican accent.
  • The Beetlebugs are the junior wheelers. Their name and shape derive from a Volkswagen Beetle – cars nicknamed bugs. Their speech is mostly synchronized. There are five of them - a blue one, a red one, a green one, a yellow one and an orange one.
  • Lance (voiced by Dee Bradley Baker) is a purple rhinoceros ambulance. His name is both a contraction of the ambulance and a reference to a weapon used by lancers who attacked with it at a full charge – much like a rhino attacks things by charging at them.
  • Bobby (voiced by Jimmy Hibbert) is a toucan police chief. His character may be derived from a Bubble car – he even has the same three-wheeled chassis. His name is derived from the British slang word for police officers. He is the only Wheeler that can fly.
  • Dozer (voiced by Keith Wickham) is a bull construction worker. His name and shape derive from a Bulldozer. His talent is digging and repairing roads with his dozer blade.
  • Miss Jolly (voiced by Amanda Symonds) is a zebra school teacher. She is one of the oldest and wisest of the Wheelers. She is also the only one to wear glasses.
  • Toadhog (voiced by Ron Orbach) is a grumpy green toad who likes worms and Fifi flies. He has a long, sticky tongue that can shoot out a long way to grab things. His name derives from Road Hog – an inconsiderate or selfish motorist. He seems responsible for Jungle Junction's power supply – his water wheel powers the generator for all of the lights (including the traffic lights) (see Hiccup Power), and he has a supplementary generator that is used to power the Zipsmas lights. He loses his patience with almost everyone except Taxicrab, mostly because Taxicrab is the most tolerant of him.
