Bobbie the Bandicoot is the main protagonist of Bandicoot. He is an anthropomorphic bandicoot and the star of his 1985 Saturday morning cartoon, Bobbie and Friends.
He is voiced by Rob Paulson, who also voiced Yakko Warner in Animaniacs by the Warner Brothers Studio. The creators of Bandicoot asked Rob to use his voice of Yakko for Bobbie.
Bobbie was a Saturday morning cartoon star back in 1985, when his show officially aired. He had many new friends and fell in love with the beautiful anthropomorphic squirrel, Monisa.
One day, his show got cancelled in the early 1990s because his show was "too wild". They banished his friends to exile and locked him up in a safe at the bank. He was never released again until the modern 21st century when he escaped.
He is also infatuated with the burrito girl who works in a food truck.
Bobbie is a smart-aleck and a very clever bandicoot. He always comes up with ideas and sticks to the bright side of things. He is also the leader of his friends and they look up to him as guidance. They love his ideas, and Monisa, sometimes, rewards him with a kiss on the cheek for his great ideas, making him blush.
Bobbie is always telling his friends to never give up. He always has a plan just in case something goes wrong. His strong eyesight allows him to try to see through another path or out of the knot. He may have used this technique to get out of the safe.
Like most cartoons, he is a humor of the show. He sometimes puts in a witty comment or cracks a joke, sometimes at the wrong time. He uses this technique to cheer someone up, or to just crack some humor into the show.
Aside from being zany, and funny, Bobbie is a really tender person. He is the father figure to most of the younger characters, especially the youngest, Bonnie. In the film, Bobbie reads Bonnie a story when she is frightened by the thunderstorm outside and calms her down. This proves that he has a soft side, much to his zany pleasure.
Bobbie is an anthroporpmorphic bandicoot with orange fur, auburn stripes, and blue eyes. He usually wears a teal sweater, denim overalls with star buckles and stitches star pockets, and brown boots. He also wears gloves with stars on them.
