Characters

Main characters

  • Yuri (voiced by Nissae Isen in seasons one and two, and Jeff Geddis in the English dub) – Yuri is five years old. He is smart, independent and happy, and has a very fertile imagination. He is an only child, and as a result is sometimes lonely, and can be a little selfish.
  • Lili (voiced by Addison Holley) – Lili is almost six years old, she acts very determined and loyal, and often speaks before she thinks. She is the oldest of four children, and often tries to help take care of her three baby brothers; this has given her a tendency towards bossiness, which her friends don't always like, especially when she tries to take control of their games.
  • Matt (voiced by Gage Munroe in seasons one and two, and David Berni in season three) – Matt is seven years old, he loves to play sports, and is very energetic in everything he does. He is very curious, full of ideas and opinions, and very mischievous, which means he is often getting into trouble. He has an older sister named Nina who often teases him.

Big Friends

  • Golias (voiced by Scott McCord) – Golias, Yuri's Big Big Friend, is a large, round, blue elephant. Golias is affectionate, likes to act, dress up, try new things and play outdoors. He is also very timid, and gnashes his teeth in fear if the lights are out. He loves to give Yuri trunk rides, and is quite sad if he ever feels left out.
  • Nessa (voiced by Tajja Isen) – Nessa is Lili's Big Big Friend. She is a pink giraffe who can make friends with anyone, and is optimistic and cheerful. Nessa also lets Lili ride on her neck. She is agreeable and mediates conflicts.
  • Bongo (voiced by Rick Miller in seasons one and two, and Michael Caldwell in season three) – Matt's Big Big Friend, Bongo, is a green kangaroo. Like Matt, he is athletic, energetic and constantly jumping. He has a great sense of humor and an infectious, uncontrollable laugh. Bongo is afraid of being ignored and likes attention. Bongo is also very fearful. He has a pouch that Matt rides in despite the fact he is a male kangaroo. However, in real life, only female kangaroos have pouches. His pouch is apparently in more than one spot, since Bongo can be seen pulling things out or putting things into different pouches in various locations, such as, up by his neck, down at his sides (almost like pockets).

Recurring

  • Yuri's Mother (voiced by Susan Roman)
  • Yuri's Father (voiced by Adam Reid)
  • Lili's Mother (voiced by Linda Ballantyne)
  • Lili's Father (voiced by Martin Roach)

  • Nina (voiced by Krystal Meadows)
  • Ms. Carrol (voiced by Julie Pinto)

Minor

  • Levi, Luca and Leo (voiced by Sonja Ball, Cary Huang and Elisabeth Macrae) – Leo, Levi and Luca are Lili's younger twin brothers who often don't listen to her older sister's directions. In the episode "Lili's Tea Party", they happen to have fun messing up Lili's tea party, and not staying in their chairs like Lili asked them.
  • Lili's dolls (voiced by Stephanie Anne Mills, Barbara Budd and Krystal Meadows) – Lili's dolls (Hannah, Deborah and Sophie) are typically calm and passive, however, they can get mad rather quick when it comes to Lili ignoring their directions. They also enjoy talking in unison in the reboot series and might often mess up with certain things. They appear in "Lili's Tea Party" and make frequent appearances in the revival series. Sophie played the main antagonist role in season three.
