Bubble Guppies is a preschool children's TV series produced for Nickelodeon (in the US) created by Jonny Belt and Robert Scull. The show aired from 2011 to 2016, disappointing many fans, parents and grandparents, alike. Luckily the show can still be enjoyed in reruns. It is a great show for children ages 3/4. Let's dive in and learn more about The Guppies so you can enjoy the show with your little ones.
The Guppies live in the fictional underwater city of Bubbletucky. The series follows the Guppies in their school lives and make believe adventures. Here's all of the characters you need to know about.
Gil is a turbo charged boy, he loves interacting with his surroundings- whatever he sees he needs to touch and play with. He loves creating adventure and getting silly. He does have the tendency of getting scared easily. Gil has blue hair, blue eyes, and a green camouflage tail. He has a puppy named Bubble who loves to pop bubbles. He has orange and white fur and a green collar with a yellow fish license.
Molly is a natural born leader and star. She’s smart, she sings, and she’s a really good friend since she deeply cares for all of her friends and their feelings. She has long pink hair, brown skin, brown eyes, a swirly bikini top, and a blue swirly tail.
Deema is the drama queen of the pack as she has a big personality. She’s zany, imaginative, energetic and goofy. She loves being the center of attention and making others laugh while telling jokes in an operatic, singsong voice. She has big yellow curly hair, blue eyes, and an orange/yellow spotted bikini top and tail.
Nonny is very cautious of all situations but very intelligent. He’s polite, mature but not the most enthusiastic. He helps Deema properly pronounce words and helps find solutions and answers to all questions. Nonny has orange hair, green eyes, a blue scuba mask (his glasses, how cute!), and a green striped tail.
Oona is very sweet and gentle guppy. Whenever one of her friends is feeling ill or blue, she’s always there to pick them right up. She has purple hair in two pigtails with a pink star shaped clip, brown eyes, and a purple and pink striped tail.
Goby is the imaginative make believer. He loves putting on costumes to create a mood and tells various original stories in silly voices. Goby uses his imagination to invent exciting adventure stories for his friends to act out. He has indigo hair, brown eyes, and a purple/blue wavy tail.
Mr.Grouper is a non-human regular fish. He’s the guppies’ teacher. He respects the kids' imaginations, ideas, and suggestions as he sees them grow. Mr.Grouper’s body is orange and yellow but he can change his body color at will.
