The series' main character is a dim-witted but determined dog named
Dudley Puppy who works as a spy for an organization called T.U.F.F.
(short for Turbo Undercover Fighting Force). His partner is a cat
named Kitty Katswell. Other helpers are The Chief and Keswick. The
series takes place in the fictional city of Petropolis (distinct from
the Brazilian city of Petrópolis, which is the Greek name for St.
Petersburg), which is populated by anthropomorphic animals. As a
member of T.U.F.F.,
Dudley Puppy helps
Kitty Katswell protect
Petropolis from various villains like Verminious Snaptrap, the
Chameleon, and Birdbrain.
The Turbo Undercover Fighting Force (T.U.F.F.) is an organization that
protects Petropolis from crime.
Dudley Puppy (voiced by Jerry Trainor) – He is the heart and soul of
T.U.F.F. even though he's depicted as an idiotic, airheaded,
hyperactive and loud white and black, mixed-breed dog who usually
wears nothing more than a black T-shirt. Despite his lack of common
sense he has been proven to be exceedingly clever (i.e. tricking the
Chameleon into morphing into a mouse so that Agent Jumbo would jump on
him out of fear). Dudley was first discovered by T.U.F.F. when he
followed his recently acquired chew toy into D.O.O.M.'s headquarters
where he unknowingly defeated Francisco, Bad Dog, and Leather Teddy at
the time when
Kitty Katswell was pursuing Verminious Snaptrap.
Keswick's DNA analysis shows that Dudley is the "perfect mix of every
breed of dog known to man". Since each breed of dog has a special
trait (like a beagle's appearance, a Bloodhound's sensitive nose, a
Greyhound's speed, German Shepherd's brave heart, the fighting
abilities of a Chinese Fighting Dog (Shar-Pei) the buff chest and arms
of an Alaskan Malamute, the French-speaking of a French Poodle, the
leaping abilities of a Springer. etc.), Dudley's overall natural
skills makes him a formidable agent and he is made Kitty Katswell's
partner. Dudley also has bad habits of being gluttonous and immature.
Despite this eccentric personality, his bravery and advanced natural
physical skills are an asset to T.U.F.F. in times of need and he can
be pretty sensible when needed. He usually comes up with clever plans
to stop his enemies, and he becomes more and more noble as time goes
by. His catchphrase is "Hi gee gee", and he often says it whenever
he's ready to jet out of the area. A running gag consists of the fact
he reads poorly and cannot spell or write. However, there have been
many times that Dudley has demonstrated that he has these abilities.
In the episode "Snap Dad", it's revealed that Dudley's mother is still
dating; the whereabouts of Dudley's father have not been revealed.
Kitty Katswell (voiced by Grey DeLisle) – A female cat who is one of
T.U.F.F.'s best agents. She is also Dudley's partner and best friend.
Skilled in various fighting styles and use of firearms, is short
tempered, and easily startled,
Kitty Katswell is a force to be
reckoned with. A few episodes mention that her birthdays as a child
have been horrendous, she spent eight years in Secret Agent College,
and has a twin sister named Katty who is in jail. Being a cat, she
naturally fought with Dudley (who is a dog) when he first joined the
agency (usually in an immature manner). However, as episodes progress,
she becomes more affectionate to Dudley as he presents his courage,
skill, nobility, and respect for her and T.U.F.F. more often. Later
they stop fighting and become heartfelt friends. She wears a black spy
suit over her white turtle neck, white boots, a white hairband, and
white gloves (unless she is wearing a disguise). She occasionally
gives into her animal instincts like chasing mice and birds, clawing
things, or leaving dead mice on doorsteps.
Chief Herbert Dumbrowski (voiced by Daran Norris) – A tough and
strict but good-natured flea who is the leader of T.U.F.F.
Subsequently, he's Dudley's employer and (although he's usually
getting angry at Dudley and yelling at him) he seems to be somewhat
proud of him as an agent. In "Internal Affairs", it's revealed that he
used to be T.U.F.F.'s top field agent until he retired and became (or
was most-likely awarded) the chief of T.U.F.F. The episode also
revealed that he has a bionic foot, has short term memory loss, and
uses a toupée (all due to his aging).
Keswick (voiced by Jeff Bennett) – The primary inventor and
scientist of T.U.F.F. HQ, although whatever he invents is somewhat
worthless due to the fact that it shoots acid, is too dangerous, or is
just downright unpredictable. Many of his ray guns have weird results,
to which he responds with frustration towards himself. Usually, when
he speaks, he has a stutter. Dudley is somewhat close to him although
Dudley finds him and his random abilities odd, making him curious
about his species. Oddly enough, Keswick's species is simply
"Keswick". Subsequently, it's shown that he has gills, webbed feet,
looks like a labradoodle or a prairie dog, and has the ability to lay
eggs. In "Pup Daddy", it's shown that he goes through animal phases.
In "The Doomies", it's shown that he's not on good terms with his
parents and in "Dog Dish", it's revealed that he has a brother-in-law
named Stan. This confirms he has a sister. In "Love Bird", it is known
that his mom didn't like him dating because relationships are a lot of
work and that the girl will lose her girlish figure. In "Crusin' for a
Brusin'", it is shown that he cannot sing well because of his
stuttering. It is also revealed in "Thunder Dog" that he is
exceedingly afraid of girls. In "True Spies", it is revealed that
Keswick is an alien from Keswickia who is wanted by the Keswickian
Police for cooking stinky fish at work, as his planet is very strict.
T.U.F.F. Troopers – The foot soldiers of T.U.F.F. who resemble older
versions of Dudley.
Also in T.U.F.F. are various personnel that appear as background
characters whether as agents, office workers, and/or scientists. Some
of the minor members of T.U.F.F. that have been identified or

first made a cameo in "Hot Dog". He resides under an office printer
and is the one who tells about the end of winter.

Cane-Ine" so far. He was seen running on a hamster wheel.
Agent Hammerhead – A hammerhead shark T.U.F.F. Agent who was first
seen in "Puppy Unplugged".
Agent Jumbo (voiced by Grey DeLisle) – An elephant T.U.F.F. Agent
who has a fear of mice which would result in her jumping up when she
sees them and accidentally crushing anyone.
Agent Kid – A goat T.U.F.F. Agent who was first seen in "Pup Daddy".
He is known to eat cans including the ones that are in the recycling
Agent Moby (voiced by Matthew W. Taylor) – A whale T.U.F.F. Agent
who appeared in "A Doomed Christmas". Like Agent Jumbo, Agent Moby
also has a tendency to accidentally crush the Chief.
Mouse – A mouse T.U.F.F. Agent who was incorrectly paired with
Snake in "Match Me If You Can" where he was swallowed whole by
Agent Nutz (voiced by Jeff Bennett) – A squirrel T.U.F.F. Agent who
would always freak out about something completely random and blast it
with his laser.

Big Bad Wolf
Big Bad Wolf in "Match Me If You Can".
George Looney – A loon that works as a janitor at T.U.F.F. and is a
descendant of Petropolis' founder Daniel Boone Looney. George Looney
has so far been only seen in "Legal Beagle".
Sally Mander (voiced by Grey DeLisle) – A salamander that works as a
secretary at T.U.F.F. Her name is a pun on "salamander".
Scary Jimmy (voiced by Matthew W. Taylor) – A bull that works as a
janitor at T.U.F.F. He is a very suspicious and strange person. Scary
Jimmy is implied to be somewhat of a shut-in, mentally unstable,
paranoid and potentially harmful. He has stated that he can memorize
the backs of people's heads.
Tammy (voiced by Grey DeLisle) – A rabbit that works as a secretary
Verminious Snaptrap (voiced by Matthew W. Taylor) – An evil and
stupid rat and the leader of the Diabolical Order of Mayhem. Despite
being a rat, he is allergic to cheese which causes him to swell up.
Like his nemesis Dudley Puppy, he is hyperactive, immature, and
airheaded. However, unlike Dudley, he doesn't show intellectual
potential. He is often easily frustrated when his fellow D.O.O.M.
members do something foolish. A running gag is Snaptrap throwing
Larry, Dudley, Kitty, or others into his shark tank (which never
actually kills any of them). In "Operation: Happy Birthday", it's
revealed that he still lives with his mother. Later on in "Dog Dish",
it's revealed that his mother buys all of Snaptrap's evil gadgets.
That same episode shows that he has a blog, and that he uses his
gadgets for incredibly stupid plans such as sneaking into movie
theaters. Although, on some occasions, he has shown to be able to do
true evil, such as launching the entire town into the sun (as seen in
"Mall Rat" when he faked his reform). After most defeats, he shouts "I
will now plot my revenge!" In "Forget Me Mutt", it's shown that he's
verbally abused by his mother. In "Mind Trap", he's shown to go
dumpster diving for food.
Chameleon (voiced by Daran Norris) – An evil and stupid
chameleon in a molecular transformation suit which allows him to
shapeshift into virtually any disguise or inanimate object. In
"Doom-mates", his name is pronounced "The Cham-a-leon" as a running
gag he wanted to get revenge on
Kitty Katswell by blowing her up nine
times but Dudley heroically thwarted his evil plan, thus saving her.
He talks like Peter Lorre and eats any bug he sees, a trait used
against him several times. His relationship with D.O.O.M. seems rather
strained, since he tends to work separately from the others and once
planned to trick them and T.U.F.F. to destroy each other. He said he
wanted to go to D.O.O.M.'s weekly ice cream socials, but he was never
Chameleon later teamed up with D.O.O.M. in "Mission:
Really Big Mission," ending with him being blasted into space (which
he somehow survived). As a running gag, he often tries to wear some
type of eyewear only to have his eyes go around or through them, as
his chameleon eyes constantly bug around and look in separate
directions, which creeps Dudley out, as seen in "Doom-Mates." He can
sometimes be very random when disguised. Whenever he's in disguise, he
tends to say random things relating to his disguise (For example, in
"Internal Affairs," disguised as General Warhog tells the soldiers
"semper fi" and "remember the Alamo"). Oddly, whenever the story has
him using a disguise for a long time as a major plot point, his voice
is never disguised, despite him being able to disguise it during the
short disguises in other episodes (although this may be because he
experiences a sort of discomfort by mimicking voices, forcing him to
do it rarely, but this is just speculation, and it has yet to be
explained). Another oddity is that Dudley can never tell when the
Chameleon is disguised or what he is disguised as, despite him having
the sharp nose of a bloodhound (possibly the
Chameleon can disguise
his smell, too). If the
Chameleon is splashed with liquid while in
disguise, his suit will short circuit and he will be forced to return
to normal (although he notes that it's only on the outside, as inside,
it makes him feel bloated). Also, his suit is wired into his brain and
if it's removed, he will have no choice but return to his normal form.
Bird Brain (voiced by Rob Paulsen) – Bird Brain is an evil
blue-bottomed booby genius who can't fly with his wings (something he
always forgets). Despite his species name's origin which is from the
Spanish word "bobo" or "stupid", he is Petropolis' most competent
villain. Bird Brain seems to be quite intelligent and capable at his
job. Like Snaptrap, he is very easily frustrated by his comrades, whom
tend to be genuinely much more foolish than Snaptrap's smarter and
more villainous gang. In "Thunder Dog" it is revealed that he is
prematurely bald. In "A Doomed Christmas", it is revealed that
although he looks old he is only 23. In "Hush Puppy", it is revealed
that he lost his hair at a young age due to stress.
Snaptrap's Henchmen or D.O.O.M.
Larry (voiced by Jeff Bennett) – A shrew who is Verminious
Snaptrap's brother-in-law (Larry's married to Snaptrap's sister) and
one of his three main henchmen. Despite being considered dim-witted by
Snaptrap, Larry is the second smartest and most intelligent of his
three main henchmen. Larry often infuriates Snaptrap by talking back
to him or, on a few occasions, making mistakes, which results in him
either getting blasted by a laser or thrown into the shark tank. In
"Doom and Gloom", the recent abuse from Snaptrap and him not listening
to Larry's advice not to tell T.U.F.F. of his plans causes Larry to
splinter off from Snaptrap and forms G.L.O.O.M. (short for Genius
Larry's Order of Mayhem) with Ollie and Francisco where Larry operated
under the alias of Murray. While planning a plot to turn off
Petropolis' power and cover the whole city in fog emitted from a fog
machine, Larry had G.L.O.O.M's temporary headquarters in the sewing
room owned by Snaptrap's mom. With help from Snaptrap, Dudley and
Kitty were able to stop Larry's plot and get Larry, Ollie, and
Francisco back onto D.O.O.M. In "True Spies", it is revealed that
Snaptrap actually doesn't hate Larry, but only mistreated him because
he believes he has much potential to be malignant.
Ollie (voiced by Jeff Bennett) – A sensible and smart British
opossum who is one of Snaptrap's main henchmen. Ollie is Snaptrap's
voice of reason whom he often ignores. A recurring gag in the series
is that Ollie is the one who accidentally gives Snaptrap something
cheese related either forgetting about his boss's cheese allergy or
Snaptrap idiotically forgetting it himself. Another gag involving him
is that Ollie is the one who gives Snaptrap the ideas for his evil
plans due to a misunderstanding that Snaptrap has already come up with
a plan only to reveal it's just something he likes to do (i.e. in
"Iron Mutt", he thinks that Snaptrap has planned to trap the principal
of the local high school and impersonate her due to the large
mousetrap and the dress he's wearing which Snaptrap, who just really
liked wearing dresses, quickly covers up by saying that was his plan).
In "True Spies", it is revealed that Ollie isn't really British, but
uses a British accent to make himself sound smart.
Francisco (voiced by Daran Norris) – An alligator who is one of
Snaptrap's three main henchmen. He is also the only one of Snaptrap's
henchman who seems to take villainy seriously. In "Dog Dish", he kept
trying to convince Snaptrap to use the invisibility helmet for more
evil deeds than sneaking into the movies. In "True Spies", it is
revealed that Francisco's real name is Francesca because his parents
wanted a girl.
Bad Dog (voiced by
Jeff Bennett in the first appearance, Daran Norris
in later appearances) – A pit bull and one of Snaptrap's henchmen.
He is often seen with a black torn sleeveless shirt with a skull on it
(similar to Punisher's T-shirt). Bad Dog is often paired up with
Leather Teddy. He stops appearing after the first season.
Leather Teddy (voiced by Eric Bauza) – A leather clad blue bear and
one of Snaptrap's henchmen that wears an eyepatch (though the first
episode shows that he still has an eye under the eyepatch). He wields
bear traps on chains for weapons. Leather Teddy's outfit gives him the
appearance of a biker. He is often paired up with Bad Dog. He stops
appearing after the first season.
The Mole (voiced by Matthew W. Taylor) – A mole agent who is
Snaptrap's master of infiltration. He stops appearing after the first
Skunk (voiced by Jeff Bennett) – A skunk who is one of Snaptrap's
henchmen. So far, he has only appeared in "Cruisin' with a Bruisin".
Snaptrap is also shown to have other, unnamed minions over the course
of the show, but they never have major roles, and eventually stopped
Bird Brain's Henchmen
Zippy (voiced by Grey DeLisle) – Zippy is Bird Brain's
scatterbrained hummingbird sidekick who constantly encourages him to
fly, despite the fact that his subspecies is incapable of it (although
real-life boobies are able to fly). Whenever
Bat would say
"Hoo." and "Where?" respectively, Zippy occasionally adds "Why?" which
often infuriates Bird Brain.
Owl (voiced by Jeff Bennett) –
Owl is one of Bird Brain's henchmen
upon being hired by Zippy. He and
Bat are both very incompetent where
he would often infuriate his boss by saying "Hoo".
Bat (voiced by Daran Norris) –
Bat is one of Bird Brain's henchmen
upon them being hired by Zippy. He and
Owl are both very incompetent
where he would infuriate his boss by saying "Where?" in response to
the orders given to him.
Bat is suggested to be blind (although he
occasionally does his job exactly as told implying that he has some
vision and he is apparently slightly smarter than Owl). Bird Brain
seems to like
Bat more because at one point in "Thunder Dog",
his job exactly as he was told without saying his usual "Where?" This
surprised Bird Brain while
Owl idiotically said his usual "Hoo", as
Bird Brain threatened to hit
Owl with a boulder.
Duck (voiced by Jeff Bennett) – A duck who is one of Bird Brain's
more recent henchmen as seen in "Puppy Unplugged". He can speak in
both duck and human languages. Whenever someone says his name, other
people "duck" for cover because they think that something is coming
right at them. In "Puppy Unplugged", it is revealed that his real name
is "Skip", causing everyone to skip around happily.
Ewe (voiced by Grey DeLisle) – A female sheep who is one of Bird
Brain's more recent henchmen as seen in "Monkey Business".
Fly – A small purple fly who is one of Bird Brain's henchmen as seen
in "Bad Eggs" (although he never signed the application, and is in
fact just a housefly). When Bird Brain says his name, his henchmen
start flying around him.
Peck Me – A goose who is one of Bird Brain's henchmen in "Barking
Tall". When Bird Brain says his name, his henchmen start pecking him.
R.I.T.A. (voiced by Grey DeLisle) – R.I.T.A. is a super-intelligent
toaster created by Keswick. She stops Snaptrap and the Chameleon, but
when Keswick attempts to unplug her because T.U.F.F. is eco-friendly,
R.I.T.A. turned evil and attempted to take over the city. With the
help of Keswick's hologram, Dudley makes her to fall to her death on a
cliff and into a lake. Some of her lines and actions suggest that she
(at least in part) is a parody of the evil computer H.A.L. from 2001:
A Space Odyssey.
Snowflake and Slush (voiced by
Mary Birdsong and Dave Boat) –
Snowflake and Slush are evil rabbit siblings who dress up as
vegetables and cheat in events by eliminating and kidnapping the
winners. Snowflake is the mastermind of the two, while Slush possesses
little to no intelligence, who in his sister's words is "dumber than a
box of hair" (she should know, she used to skate with one, and claims
it was smarter than him). Despite his immense stupidity, he is very
competent with Snowflake's plan and when it is ruined, he is shown to
be just as angry at the failure and desperate to escape as Snowflake
Dr. Rabies and Madame Catastrophe (voiced by
Jerry Trainor and Grey
DeLisle) – Two villains who resemble
Dudley Puppy and Kitty Katswell
except that their evil twins wear eye patches and have goatees on
their chins. They only appeared in "The Doomies".
Mad Cow – Mad Cow is an angry bull who first appeared in "Snap Dad"
trying to escape from jail. Mad Cow's escape was a success at the time
when Snaptrap was a T.U.F.F. Agent and dating Peg. He tried to escape
Petropolis Prison with Snaptrap's help as seen in "Dog Dish", but he
was stopped by Dudley and Kitty. His name is a reference to "mad cow
Horse – Crazy
Horse is a horse who uses chainsaws (he even
whinnies while using chainsaws). He tried to escape Petropolis Prison
with Snaptrap's help as seen in "Dog Dish", but he was stopped by
Dudley and Kitty. He ends up getting Snaptrap as his cellmate. His
name is a reference to the Native American leader Crazy Horse.
Wild Turkey – Wild Turkey is a turkey who tried to escape Petropolis
Prison with Snaptrap's help as seen in "Dog Dish", but he was stopped
by Dudley and Kitty.
Chicken – Kung Pow
Chicken is a chicken talented in martial
arts. He tried to escape Petropolis Prison with Snaptrap's help as
seen in "Dog Dish", but he got arrested thanks to Kitty. His name is a
pun on Kung Pao Chicken.
Rabbit (voiced by Daran Norris) – Jack
Rabbit is a former elite
T.U.F.F. agent and Kitty's former partner who is a parody of James
Bond, he had turned evil, attempting to drain secret agents' brains
with his organization S.T.U.F.F. (short for Super Turbo Undercover
Fighting Force) and sell their secrets to villains along with the
building to earn money. Greedy, clever, arrogant, and dishonest, Jack
attempted to lure Kitty into a trap so he could steal her information
(mostly to get money from Snaptrap), but was defeated by Dudley and
Keswick. Judging by a line from Kitty in "The Wrong Stuff", she and
Jack were supposedly a couple once. He and Snaptrap are arrested by
Dudley and Keswick. He later attempted to woo Kitty (who was actually
Dudley, and had previously used a Brain-Swapping device on himself
earlier) into letting him steal the T.U.F.F. computer database. He was
once again defeated,
Cod (voiced by
Chris Parnell in the first appearance, Mick
Wingert in later appearances) – The Caped
Cod is a crazy cod who
thinks he is the ruler of the seven seas, and thinks that Dudley is
the king of the surface world and talks to inanimate objects at the
bottom of the sea that he thinks are his subjects. He once tried to
flood Petropolis but was stopped by Kitty and Dudley and was put in an
aquarium for the criminally insane. His name is a reference to Cape
Cod, Massachusetts. In "Cold Fish", the Caped
Cod escapes from his
incarceration and tried to flood Petropolis again in order to make it
part of his kingdom by melting the Riceberg Ice Bird Iceberg. He also
did this to get revenge on Bryce Riceberg because she didn't invite
him to her wedding (which he did, and the Caped
Cod just never read
his mail. He later returned to his plan, as the Ricebergs were serving
fish) and they were best friends in middle school. The Caped
once again defeated in the end.
Stink Bug (voiced by Carlos Alazraqui) – Stink Bug is Petropolis'
worst smelling villain who was kicked out of Petropolis for smelling
so bad. He is very rude and cruel to his intern Percival (who kept
suggesting for Stink Bug to take a bath). Because of his very strong
odor, Dudley's super sensitive snout made him powerless. When it came
to stinking up Petropolis with a combined odor of the stuff he stole,
Percival gave away the name of the Stink Bug's device causing Stink
Bug to fire him and send him down the trap door. In order to combat
Stink Bug Dudley caught Keswick's cold. Dudley defeated Stink Bug and
was taken to jail by Percival.
Lunch Lady Bug (voiced by Candi Milo) – A ladybug who worked as a
lunch lady at Petropolis High School and makes disgusting food that
only Dudley likes. It was even mentioned that she received warning
letters from the Health Department involving her dishes. She tried to
destroy everyone at the High School Reunion only to be defeated by
Dudley and Kitty. A goof is that she is depicted with eight legs when
ladybugs have six legs.
F.L.O.P.P. – Short for Fiendish League of Potential Perpetrators,
F.L.O.P.P. is a criminal organization that would often do minor
criminal activities and use the tool shed at a golf course. A running
gag about them is that they find dangerous weapons that are left in
the lost and found by Verminious Snaptrap.
Meerkat (voiced by Daran Norris) – A meerkat who is the eccentric
leader of F.L.O.P.P. with a black cowboy hat. In "Bluff Puppy", it is
revealed that he is diabetic.
Bee (voiced by
Jerry Trainor in a high-pitch voice) – A bee
who is a member of F.L.O.P.P. His name is a play on "wannabe". In "The
Spelling Bee", Wanna-
Bee temporarily operated his own stand-alone
villain career as the Spelling
Bee where he was capturing spelling bee
competitors while the rest of F.L.O.P.P. were on jury duty.
Goat (voiced by Matthew W. Taylor) – A goat who is a member
of F.L.O.P.P. and is an escape artist. His name is a play on
Crab – A fiddle-playing crab who is a member of F.L.O.P.P.
So far, he has only appeared in "Top Dog".
Lynx – A lynx who is mentioned as a member of F.L.O.P.P. as
he is "missing as usual". Missing Lynx's name is a play on "missing
Bluffalo (voiced by Jeff Bennett) – A buffalo that is a member of
F.L.O.P.P. in "Bluff Puppy". He has a tendency to tell bluffs.
Bluffalo is also an old friend of Meerkat.
Duck (voiced by Matthew W. Taylor) – Quacky the
originally a kid show host seen in "Kid Stuff". Dudley, Chief, and
Keswick all watch Quacky's show, but Dudley is his biggest fan and the
captain of his unofficial fan club. When his show was cancelled,
Quacky wanted to get revenge by blasting the TV Chairman with a
nuclear missile with Dudley and Kitty tied to it. He was arrested by
Dudley and his show is now in prison where he has Revenge
viewers how to get revenge on the jury that convicts anyone. In "Lucky
Duck", Quacky the
Duck is released from prison and establishes a
restaurant. In "Quack in the Box", he and Sharing
Moose are released
from prison and start a fast food chain. They try to get revenge on
Dudley by framing him for taking out the competition against other
fast food chains using action figures of characters from Quacky's
show. However, his plan was discovered and he was stopped once again.
He later appeared again in "Lights, Camera, Quacktion" when it was
revealed that he lost his TV show and seek revenge on T.U.F.F. by
framing Dudley, Kitty, Keswick and the Chief into thinking that he was
going to make a movie and having them commit serious crimes such as
stealing a truck, steal gold from Fort Ox, and loading them into a
ship to Canada. His plan almost worked, but was foiled by T.U.F.F.
Quacky makes another appearance in "Quacky Birthday", where he wants
to shut T.U.F.F. down once and for all. He pretends he has a party
room for Dudley's birthday party. Because of that, Dudley lets him and
Moose to take things from stores without arresting them.
Once the T.U.F.F. agents are in his "party place", Quacky locks them
in with dynamites. However, Dudley manages to save T.U.F.F. and arrest
him. In "T.U.F.F. Cookies", Quacky the
Duck hires Dudley to help
promote his Animal Quackers. He was thwarted again by Dudley. In "The
Good, the Bad, and the Quacky", Quacky the
Duck hosts a TV show that
pits Dudley, Kitty, Keswick, and Chief against Verminious Snaptrap,
Chameleon, and Birdbrain. When the game started to get deadly,
T.U.F.F. had to work together with Verminious Snaptrap, Chameleon, and
Birdbrain to survive the game show and defeat Quacky.
Moose (voiced by Jeff Bennett) – A moose that is the
buff and violent best friend of Quacky the Duck. He constantly reminds
viewers important stuff like "Not to commit internet fraud" or "never
leave town without telling your parole officer or he will hunt you
down". The Sharing Moose's actor appears to be doing community service
since he seems to be from jail.
Katty Katswell (voiced by Grey DeLisle) – Kitty Katswell's evil twin
sister. She was first mentioned in "Diary of a Mad Cat" where it is
stated that she is in prison. As a criminal, she commits crimes such
as armed robbery, grand theft auto, and insurance fraud. Katty debuted
in "A Tale of Two Kitties" where she escapes from prison to take
revenge on her sister who put her in prison. Katty does this by
swapping places with her own sister to steal 24 carat Golden Fishbowl
from the Petropolis Art Museum exhibit in which Dudley and Kitty have
assignments to protect this. Dudley didn't know that where his partner
was swapped by Katty. Katty was eventually found out, ends up defeated
by Dudley and Kitty, and is sent back to prison.
Weasel (voiced by Jeff Bennett) – The
Weasel is a super
diabolical villain. He targeted
Dudley Puppy (who had placed him in
prison) and Verminious Snaptrap (who once impersonated him) prompting
Kitty Katswell to pose as their mother at Chief's version of a safe
house. He did various attempts at Dudley and Snaptrap's lives which
even included one where he went straight and gave them a
jack-in-the-box bomb. After that attempt, Dudley and Kitty found the
Weasel's house and were able to defeat him. The
Weasel was imprisoned
and became a cellmate of Snaptrap who was also arrested for looting
the Weasel's house.
Bee (voiced by Matthew W. Taylor) – The Rumble
Bee is the
older, and more evil, brother of Wanna-Bee. When Keswick accidentally
created an army of mutant laser-firing bees (one of which was the
Bee himself), he quickly became their leader. Wanna-Bee,
resenting his brother for his accomplishments, joined T.U.F.F. in
The Overbear (voiced by Jeff Bennett) – The Overbear is a villain,
known for his extremely overbearing personality. In "T.U.F.F. Break
Up," The Chief asks him to help bring T.U.F.F. back together, as he
was The Chief's former bowling partnter, resulting in Dudley and Kitty
retrieving Birdbrain's mayonnaise for him. He is then revealed to
actually be evil, and using Birdbrain's "Obey-o-naise" to brainwash
Petropolis. He was then defeated. He was only seen in "T.U.F.F. Break
Citizens of Petropolis
Peg Puppy (voiced by Leslie Carrara-Rudolph) – Peg is Dudley's
over-protective mother. She once dated Snaptrap and the Chameleon. In
"Mom-A-Geddon", she disapproves of Dudley's occupation, but after
seeing him in action, allows him to keep his job. She thinks that
Kitty is Dudley's secretary, and never gets her name right. She
usually bothers Dudley when he's home. In "Snap Dad", she's shown to
not have her husband after Dudley's father married her which means
she's either divorced or widowed.
Mrs. Katswell (voiced by Grey DeLisle) – Mrs. Katswell is Kitty's
mother who first appeared in a flashback in "Operation: Happy
Birthday". She somewhat resembles and even sounds like her daughter.
In the episode "Diary of a Mad Cat", the
Chameleon disguises himself
as Kitty's mom and reveals that Kitty has a sister named Katty who is
Chipmunk Girl (voiced by Grey DeLisle) – An unnamed,
anthropomorphic young chipmunk who was used basically as a running gag
throughout the episode "Mall Rat". She is depicted as being adorably
innocent and sweet and her main purpose throughout the episode was to
tug at Dudley's shirt after every time Kitty thwarted one of
Snaptrap's unusual acts of kindness towards the townspeople and ask
why Kitty performed the action that destroyed Snaptrap's most recent
contribution. She also made an appearance in "Bored of Education"
where members T.U.F.F appeared at an elementary school during "Career
Day" in hopes of influencing the pupils to one day join either side.
She appeared as a student at the school who was poorly influenced by
Chameleon (along with all of the other students) to grow up to
perform acts of villainy, and she was included to be used for the same
gag that had been done in the episode "Mall Rat". She is revealed to
use her cute looks to make people do what she wants.
Bear (voiced by Matthew W. Taylor) – A bear who is the
Mayor of Petropolis and had preceded the previously unnamed mayor that
was seen in "Iron Mutt". His first name is actually "Mayor," and this
led people to assume he was their mayor. He likes to share strange
"fun facts" about himself, including that he can smell colors, (later
saying that he was off his medicine) can cross his eyes backwards, and
keeps chopped liver in the city safe.
Rodger (voiced by Jeff Bennett) – Rodger is Dudley's friend. He was
only shown once in "Mall Rat" for the punchline of a joke.
Warthog (voiced by Jeff Bennett) – A warthog who is the
general of Petropolis' army.
Wolf Spitzer (voiced by Daran Norris) – Wolf Spitzer is a gray wolf
who is Petropolis local news reporter for KPET News. He is a parody of
Eric (voiced by Daran Norris) – A buff cat who delivers the water to
T.U.F.F. Kitty has a crush on him.
Becky (voiced by Grey DeLisle) – A dog who manages loans at the
First Petropolis Bank. Dudley has a crush on her, and in "Love Puppy,"
shields her from the blast from Bird Brain's
"Lovey-Dovey-Kissy-Smoochy" gun and later returns her feelings to him.
Bob Barky (voiced by Daran Norris) – A dog game show host who hosts
various game shows in Petropolis. He is a parody of Bob Barker.
Phil (voiced by Matthew W. Taylor) – Phil is a bulldog who is
Dudley's friend. He is never shown, but is described with something
gross related to a wart or boil. His first appearance was in "Lie Like
a Dog" where he is shown to live near the bus station and is implied
by Dudley to have wealthy parents. In "Puppy Unplugged", Dudley
revealed that Phil is married yet his wife hasn't been seen yet.
Mr. Wong (voiced by Matthew W. Taylor) – A duck who is the owner of
"Wong's Chinese Buffet". He has a grudge against Dudley for eating ten
thousand dollars' worth of food, and keeping his unfinished food in
his shirt for later. He was also seen in "T.U.F.F. Break Up," renting
out half of T.U.F.F. for his dry-cleaning business.

Butch Hartman said that he created the central character and wanted to
make a crime-fighting show based on him. Because his previous animated
Danny Phantom already involved superheroes, Hartman decided
that he would focus on making Dudley a secret agent. He pitched the
Nickelodeon as "
Get Smart with a dog."
Eric Bauza, (who voices Foop in

Teddy in T.U.F.F. Puppy) was originally chosen to be the voice of
