meet the characters on the backyardigans

Get to know all of your child's backyard friends.



Pablo is an energetic, enthusiastic and excitable penguin. He thinks, speaks, acts and reacts quickly. But because he's wrapped just a little too tight, sometimes his excitement can overwhelm him--making him the character most likely to run in a circle flapping his flippers and squawking. He may not be the most agile or graceful of the friends, but he's probably the most determined and enthusiastic.


Tyrone is an easy-going, sensible young moose, who is also Pablo's best friend. Tyrone is a deep thinker, which may make him seem a master of the obvious sometimes. But he always enjoys a challenge because he knows, in his heart, that he is equal to it and he'll find a way to figure it out.


Uniqua is a one-of-a-kind character with an adventurous nature--Uniqua is not only her name, it's also her species. With her purple skin, pink spots and dainty antennae, she doesn't look like any other creature on the planet. She is sweet and graceful, but she can also be funny, a little mischievous and quite the daredevil.


Tasha is a deceptively sweet and girlish hippo who wears red Mary Janes and a flowered dress. A favorite playmate of Uniqua's, Tasha looks sweet as pie, but underneath her girly exterior beats a heart that's tough-as-nails. She is rational, skeptical and highly motivated to get her own way. Tasha and Uniqua are always giggly, silly and full of fun when they are together.


Austin is a shy boy kangaroo. Sometimes he's a little hesitant to join in, but in the end his natural bounciness usually comes through.
