“The One-Trick Pony” - He barks, he pants, he makes bizarre noises, he rolls around frantically on the floors, walls and ceiling—it’s Walter the Zompea!
Always begging like a wild hyena and following anyone he can like a lost puppy, Walter will perform any trick for a clod of dirt. Too bad those tricks usually get him into a world of trouble… but it never seems to bother him!
“The Scaredy Cat” - Third Eye’s got the excessive anxiety of a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs. This poor little guy is constantly surrounded by the mischief and mayhem of the other Zompeas and his master, Doctor Mendel! The worst part is that with every moment! To make matters worse, he seems to be the only one that can see the trouble building, and he can’t speak to warn anyone! So Third Eye must do the thing he knows how to do best—frantically panic in complete silence.Third Eye is always there for his master Mendel through thick and thin—mainly because Mendel carries him everywhere he goes whether he likes it or not! So it’s a good thing that the one thing this Zompea does have on his side is a bit of luck. Third Eye always seems to avoid the danger of being squished, squashed and splattered; even if he does always pass out afterwards from the stress.
“The Evil Genius” - “For what you’re about to read next you must enter the realm of Genius!” Doctor Mendel’s ‘genius’ can’t be understood by those that don’t know how much fun it is to make a yodeling rotten cheeseburger monster…so don’t feel left out.
As soon as this pea popped out of the pod he was…a bit odd. He was a strange to them as a pair of clean socks, and they were just plain worried about the kind of “fun” he liked to have. So feeling like his genius was unwanted and unappreciated, Dr. Mendel exiled himself to the depths of Peaopolis…after shaking his fist and swearing revenge.
Beneath the Junkyard where all the gooey muck and toxic slime dribbles down—Doctor Mendel created his ghastly green glowing secret lair where he engineered his own brand of Peas, a like-minded race that could appreciate the kind of “fun” he liked to have. And so were born
The extremely over-complicated creations that Doctor Mendel engineers by hunting through the toxic refuge of the Junkyard depths is always a twisted parody of something the Pack of Peas are doing above ground. He does this in the hopes that they will see him as the Alpha Pea! Unfortunately those creations only succeed in creating chaos that all the Peas have to ban together to stop!
Doctor Mendel tries to make life fun for his Zompeas by designing his lair like one huge theme park! He feels bad for the Peaons and how they have to live with the unappreciative V.I.Peas. He believes he can relate to their situation and has declared that it’s his sole duty as the saint that he surely is—to have his Zompeas capture them and mutate them into his friends.
Hangout: His Zompea underground playground
Catchphrase: “For what we are about to do next, we must enter the realm of…GENIUS!” (Electricity crackles and he laughs maniacally).
“The Little Pea-ple” - Living inside of the Pea Tree Clubhouse in the center of Peaopolis, these child-like Peas may all look and act the same and have no name but they’ll soon grow to be V.I.Peas and know what it means to be unique! These little Peas have big imaginations and even bigger love of adventure!
Because these curious little green thinking machines are such a prize to Dr. Mendel, the jealous and mischievous Zompeas love causing trouble for them any chance they get!

Catchphrase: “Who me?”
“The brains, obviously” - Pea Brain is constantly kept busy undoing the deeds of copycat creator Doctor Mendel and his mischievous machines.
He is the winner of the Nobel Peas Prize for his greatest invention: The Peaminimizertalazerlazer—an invention that makes human junk Pea-sized!
Pea Brain’s very single-minded and tearing him away from his work can be tough! But once he gets motivated he will be sure to find a solution for the project at hand…even if there’s something more important that he should be doing.
He’s always building for the betterment of the Peas and discovering a unique purpose for all of the things humans toss out daily. Just be sure to keep this Pea grounded because he gets very dizzy when adventure finds him on wheels, boats, airplanes or anything that moves.Hangout: His labCatchphrase: “Don’t make excuses, make progress.” “I think I’m gonna pea-yuke!”

Running the tasty and healthy Sweet Memories Sweet Shop in Peaopolis where all the Peas get their daily supply of Root Juice, Sweet Pea is more fun than a tub of bubbles!
Sweet Pea absolutely loves pretending she’s a princess. The other Peas know that if they want some of her sweet shop goodies they may have to listen to her royal orders. But sometimes her sweet game of pretend can go a little too far and get the Peaons into some not-so-sweet situations!
Hangout: Sweet Memories
“The Whistlin’ Wackadoodle” - You’ll always see a smile on this wacky little guy! Happea is an innocent and goofy little pod that loves following his twin sister Sweet Pea around and joining in whatever mischief she might be getting into.
If there’s one thing this Pea loves more than his twin sister — it’s noise! Happea is a real instrument himself! With a front-tooth gap that whistles when he talks, this Pea is in harmony! Happea is always creating new silly sound effects—like when he mimics the horn of trumpets as the soundtrack to his sister entering the room in her princess gown.
Root Juice has a gassy effect on the constantly giggling Happea! He loves to wet his whistle and rocket himself across the sky with a cheeky cannonball toot! Nicknamed: The News Caster Blaster by Chickpea — she uses him to toot and shoot across the Peaopolis sky to spread her news banners!
Hangout: Sweet Memories
Catchphrase: “ Weeeeeee!!! or Yippppeeeeaaaa!!!”
“The Not-so-bad Boy” - With a confident smirk, leaning against his trusty Popstick Skate Deck, the smooth-talking Pea G knows it’ll all work out, even when one of Mendel’s giant robots is spewing muck all over Peaopolis.
Sometimes Pea G’s honey-sweet reactions to sticky situations make the other Peas a little salty, but he’s always ready – maybe too ready — to leap without looking and help save his fellow Peas.
In his homegrown sports park, The Backyard, Pea G keeps the Peaons physically fit with sports games and personal trials that always seem to help them with something they’ve been struggling with.

Everyone loves Grumpea and it’s not hard to see why. Grumpea helps each and every Pea. He is also the craftsman of some of the cutest and most adorable creations in Peaopolis!

“The Battling Brothers” - These connected twins are a slapstick duo, rarely working as a team to get anything done! Every day Split Pea comes up with a new plan to become famous in Peaopolis — but plans don’t always work out so well when you’re at odds with yourself.
When he’s not tongue-yanking and eye-poking his brother, Pete devises plans to gain fame. However this just leads to more yanked tongues and poked eyes…
Repeat tries hard not to become too excited when one of Pete’s plans of fame is about to happen…but he just can’t help himself! Like a shaken soda can—Repeat is ready to burst!
Poor Pete just can’t get a break. There was a time that he tried to literally get a break but Peabrain said that if they ever tried to separate they might become triplets… and 2 is more than enough!

Pete’s Catchphrase: “Don’t start repeating me again…”
Repeat’s Catchphrase: “Don’t start repeating me again…”
“The Builder” - Scrappea isn’t messy—she’s very, very organized…in a very, very messy way. Tell that to any other Pea when they see this treasure hunter’s massive hodgepodge Scrap Yard and they’ll say: “Yep, Scrappea always knows what I want and where to find it! But I’d have absolutely no clue where to start…”
Cute and squirrely with a love for nuts and bolts! Anything that makes an engine purr really gets Scrappea’s motor racing towards her next project for her huge garage of toy cars. Now don’t underestimate this Pea’s size because she’s got major turbo boost!
With her best friend Chick Pea usually on the trail of a hot story in Peaopolis, Scrappea is always ready to supply her BFF with some new slick gadgets to get the job done!
Catchphrase: “Will do!”
“The Dreamer” - Night or day, you can count on this Pea to be sleeping it away! But we do have to give her credit where it’s due—she does at least stay awake long enough for the adventure to ensue…
Sleepea is always dreamily aware of what’s going on in the waking world. But she never really knows exactly what’s real and what isn’t! She could wake up to instantly solve a problem that’s got everyone else stumped! Or…was what just happened part of her dream?
Sleepea is ALWAYS willing to go on adventures. She isn’t lazy—she just works best when she’s had her beauty sl — Zzzzzz…
Hangout: Her Turtle
“The Philosomophizer” - Karate chopping onion grass without a tear shed is the mystical master of Kung Fu Cuisine— Wasapea!

Climbing his mountain of philosophical advice might make a Pea wise beyond their years…or take them years to figure out…
Wasapea can usually be found meditating by and tending to the bonsai trees that dot Peaopolis. Somehow when he’s sought-after he already seems to be mysteriously expecting those who come to visit him and knows what it is they are seeking.
Hangout: The Pea-Bachi Grill
Catchphrase: “Better a Peaon with a flaw than one without.” “Become the trash you seek. For does not the trash soar like a bird, yet remain grounded like the legume? It wants not. Yet it desires much. This is your path. Also I am hungry.”
“The Artist” - Peacasso is a multi-colored personality—frolicking and flinging his colors throughout Peaopolis! With strange energy and giggles that literally brighten the life of everyone around him, Peacasso canvas is the whole island!
He’s the liveliest and most energetic Pea in the bunch who loves turning anything into colorful art — and he never takes a break!
Extremely quirky and driven by an endless reserve of ideas, he can sometimes be an little too ‘out there’ for the other Peas—like his giant lint sculpture of a belly button. Ew.
Hangout: Roots Art Studio
Catchphrase: “Super FUNtastic!!!”
“The Tiny Terror” - The most unpredictable and devious Zompea! Dennis attacks everything and wreaks havoc wherever he goes! It’s a good thing this ankle-biter is so incredibly tiny or he might actually do some damage!
Usually screaming wildly in hooping howls and slimy snorts at the top of his lungs, this tiny little jibber-jabberer just sounds like a cassette tape on fast forward.
Be prepared to use your sleeve to blow your nose if Dennis is around. No tissue or soft and fragile thing is safe from this Zompea! While huffing and heaving he will destroy it with every teaspoon of energy he has!
“The Shape-shifter” - By extending his upper half and rotating it; this halved Zompea connected by a stretchy stalk can then release his bottom half and drill right into the ground! Why would he do this? Because although Larp might be a frightful sight; he’s actually a huge coward and is quick to use his talents to find a good hiding place where he can wait out the danger.
The Zompeas bend and twist Larp—stretching him beyond his limits! Using him as a sling shot, battering ram and however else they can bend him to their will!
“The Gloomy Gus” - Usually the glummy Gloop doesn’t want to do anything except mope but when this shape shifting, sticky, stretchy gloobidy-glob wants to, he can handle any and all dangers –he’s completely indestructible! Not that the little slime-muffin would ever want to be put through any danger… after all — danger makes Gloop glum.
“The TV Addict” - With an amazing memory and starving need for his television, infomercials and jingles, Grins is quick to chime in with the only wit he can hold a candle to —Television wit! Only…it’s not very witty…at all…
Grins may be the only Zompea that can talk but he never makes any sense when he voices himself in a conversation. Grins leaves everyone momentarily speechless after his dim-blub commentary on a ice cream ad or a “Buns of Iron” infomercial.
If you can imagine it, you can build it!
And that’s exactly what the walking, talking, adventurous, industrious Peas do in Peaopolis!
The Junkyard Island of Peaopolis is where the Peas live, work and play in converted refrigerators, stereos, whoopee cushions, ovens, truck tires, toasters, cereal boxes – you name it! One man’s trash is another Pea’s treasure!
Some junk is re-jiggered into pointless, smelly, destructive machines for harmless fun, while other trash gets transformed to solve problems, improve the Island, or save the day!
But all is not well in Peaopolis…
Overlooking Peaopolis in his Electric Toilet Castle and Zompea Underground Playground is the Peas’ nemesis — Doctor Mendel! A Pea himself! He commands his army of mischievous, mutant Zompeas to make a mess of things in Peaopolis!
But not if the fearless V.I.Peas and their puny protégés the Peaons have anything to say about it! These protectors of Peaopolis combine brains, brawn and banana peels to outsmart Mendel and his Zompeas!
So join the Peas and explore their junkyard island – from Water Cooler Rapids to The Leaning Tower of Pizza Boxes to Mound Rustmore! An adventure awaits around every trashpile!
