Meet the Characters:

Bowler Hat Guy
Bowler Hat Guy is shrouded in black and fancies himself a cunning and intimidating villain, unaware of how bumbling he really is. His evilness is deeply rooted in a childhood mishap that has sent him on a life-long quest to regain the respect that has eluded him for so long. When he teams up with Doris, a robotic bowler hat, he becomes a threat to the future that only Lewis and Wilbur can stop.
Buster is the family’s pet dog who wears glasses because his insurance won’t pay for contacts.
Carl is the suave Robinson family robot, serving the family’s every need with wit and charm. In addition, he has the unfortunate job of constantly getting Wilbur out of trouble. Carl also has a way with the ladies, and by ladies, we mean the dishwasher, the coffee maker, and the teapot.
Doris is the Bowler Hat Guy’s fashionable headwear and evil partner-in-crime. Unlike her dastardly cohort, Doris really is smart and cunning. She also has a multitude of gadgets at her disposal to carry out her evil schemes. She has a diabolical plan for the future and she will stop at nothing to extract her revenge on Lewis.
Dr. Krunklehorn
Dr. Krunklehorn is an inventor from Inventco Labs and one of the judges at Lewis’ school science fair. Her latest invention is the caffeine patch, which is like drinking twelve cups of coffee at once. She hasn’t slept in days.
Frankie the Frog - Pictured Center
Frankie the Frog (pictured center) is the orchestra leader of Franny Robinson’s all-frog swing band. As “the don” of the frog gang, Frankie is the coolest in this amphibious mafia-esque gang.
Franny is Wilbur’s effervescent mother who has discovered a way to teach frogs how to sing and play big band music.
Grandpa Bud
Grandpa Bud may seem weird to the outside world but inside the Robinson house, he just views life a little differently … and likes to wear his clothes backwards while constantly searching for his teeth.
Lefty is a one-eyed purple octopus and the family butler.
Lewis Robinson - Pictured right
Lewis is an orphan with a genius I.Q. and a passion for inventing. His offbeat nature and unintentionally disastrous inventions keep him from obtaining the one thing he longs for the most – a family to call his own. He believes his only chance is to find his real mother, so he invents the Memory Scanner, a machine that will extract his only memory of her.
Wilbur Robinson - Pictured left
Wilbur Robinson is a mysterious stranger from the future whose biggest flaws – self-confidence, cocky attitude, and fast talking banter – are also his greatest assets. They enable Wilbur to stay one step ahead of his adversaries. Knowing that Lewis holds the key to the future, Wilbur whisks him away in his time machine where the two battle a ferocious dinosaur, mind-controlled frogs and evil villains all in an effort to save the world as Wilbur knows it.
Lizzy is an intense and glowering student at the science fair whose dark attitude and fire ants concern the judges, particularly when she announces, “They only bite my enemies.”
T-Rex is brought from the past to the future by Bowler Hat Guy in an attempt to capture Lewis. However, T-Rex’s head proves too big and his arms too small to actually carry out his assignment. Though initially ferocious, he becomes the Robinson family pet.
Uncle Art
Uncle Art is a heroic-looking intergalactic pizza deliveryman who takes his work very seriously. His mission in life, as he pilots his spacecraft through the solar system, is to deliver the perfect pizza within minutes anywhere in the galaxy.
Uncle Fritz and Aunt Petunia
Uncle Fritz and Aunt Petunia have a strange marriage. She’s very cranky and endlessly tongue-lashes Uncle Fritz. She is also a hand puppet.
Uncle Gaston
Uncle Gaston likes to shoot himself out of a cannon and race Aunt
