- Tyrone: He's Pablo's best friend, and Tyrone is a young Moose who could get along with anyone. An easy-going kind of guy, Tyrone is always up for whatever adventure lies ahead.

- Tasha: She's a sweet, girlish hippo who has a flare for dramatic roles like the "princess of Egypt."
- Austin: A purple kangaroo whose shyness often becomes mysterious, Austin is resourceful and can often be found helping others.
