Cartoon Network Development Studio Europe
When Cartoon Network Development Studio Europe was created in 2007, Ben Bocquelet was hired in order to help people pitch their projects to the network. However, when the studio decided to have its employees all pitch their own ideas, he decided to take some of the rejected characters he had created for commercials and put them all in one series, with a school setting. Daniel Lennard, the Vice President of Original Series and Development at Turner Broadcasting UK, liked the idea and the series was ultimately greenlit. There were twenty half-hours worth of episodes written for the first season, but only eighteen were actually created. A second season was announced on March 17, 2011 and it will consist of an additional twenty half-hours worth of episodes, bringing the total to thirty-eight.
- 阿甘（Gumball Watterson）（配音：美國→Logan Grove；台灣→）：
12歲的阿甘是個樂觀派的小男孩，不過在某些定點容易生氣。 他曾经是如此的令人难以忍受地迷恋每一分钱, 这个发芽的花生. 尽管他那粗暴的行为,他却是一名虔诚的信徒, 严肃并总是充满善心. He has hugged Anais in one episode. He is often victim of circumstance.
- 阿達（Darwin Watterson）（配音：美國→Kwesi Boakye；台灣→）：Formerly Gumball's very favorite pet goldfish. He subsequently became a member of the family. Due to his sudden introduction into the world, his world view is somewhat skewed and he tends to be more naïve than other characters. Although his best friend can sometimes be a negative influence on him, he is incredibly loyal to Gumball and is really smart at times. He often helps Gumball out of any sticky situation.
- 安安（Anais Watterson） (配音：美國→Kyla Rae Kowalewski；台灣→林凱羚）： A prodigy at four years old, she is a rabbit who is considered to be the youngest and smartest character on the show, often being called a genius and attending school with her much older brother. Gumball resents the fact that she is always telling him what to do, but deep down, he actually loves her, and knows she's always right, there was also one time they hugged each other. Although impatient with her brother, she often tags along with him on his misadventures as a voice of reason. She also helps Gumball out of any situation.
- 陶春嬌（Nicole Watterson）（配音：美國→Teresa Gallagher；台灣→）: A workaholic cat mother, who also works long hours cleaning the house, she is the only responsible member of the family aside from Anais. She has a short temper and can get quite angry, and is also competitive by nature. She often acts like a guide when Gumball and Darwin get in a tough spot with their misadventures. She often gets over-stressed. She is extremely strong. It's seen in the last segment she fights with Tina's father in a warehouse. In the end, the warehouse collapses on Tina's father
- 陶大知（Richard Watterson） (配音：美國→Dan Russell；台灣→劉傑): A huge rabbit stay-at-home dad, he doesn't appear to have any degree of responsibility or intelligence. He usually always spends all of his time sleeping, occasionally not even bothering to get dressed. He has a gigantic appetite and is a highly voracious eater. He often serves as a third-wheel to his son's misadventures and cares for his family very much. His favorite child in the family is Darwin.
