Characters

  • Penny Proud - A fourteen-year-old teenage girl who loves her family, but often feels embarrassed by the way they act.
  • Oscar Proud - Penny's father, a born loser and an aspiring snack food salesman who overprotects his daughter.
  • Trudy Proud - Penny's crazy, loving and moral-teaching mother who is both respectful of others and fun-loving and fashion-conscious. She is a veterinarian.
  • Suga Mama - Penny's grandmother, a crotchety yet oddly youthful old woman who dotes on her granddaughter and her poodle, but hates her son Oscar.
  • Bobby Proud - Penny's deadbeat uncle, who always speaks in singsong and dresses in outfits from the 1970s.
  • Bee Bee Proud - Penny's three-year old baby brother, half of a twin couple.
  • Cee Cee Proud - Penny's three-year old baby sister, the other half of the twins.
  • Dijonay Jones - Penny's best friend.
  • Zoey - Penny's geek friend. (She was eighteen years old in the first season; later, she was converted back to fourteen years old)
  • LaCienega Boulevardez- Penny's fair weather-friend who enjoys a popularity run.
  • Papi-- La Cienega's grandfather. He looks like an aged Cesar Romero, speaks only Spanish, and often utters a high deranged laugh patterned after Romero's Joker. Suga Mama constantly tries to hit on Papi, but since she does not understand Spanish, she never realizes that Papi constantly insults her.
  • Sticky Webb - Penny's friend who likes acting cool. Dijonay has a major crush on him.
  • The Gross Sisters - Three ashy girls (their skin color is drawn as blue in the series) who like bullying everyone around but have a good heart deep inside.
  • Wizard Kelly - "It all started with a orange basketball." Based upon both Magic Johnson (wealthy, entrepeneurial, and eclectic) and Dennis Rodman (arrogant), Kelly has a talented finger in every pie. Every building, business, and company in the Prouds' world bears The Wizard's name. He is a millionare pro basketball player. His son, Wizard Kelly, Jr., attends the same school as Penny and her friends.
