Chico Bon Bon: Monkey with a Tool Belt is an American children's animated web television series based on a series of books of the same name by Chris Monroe. The series is set in Blunderburg and revolves around Chico Bon Bon (voice of Robbie Daymond) and his friends Tiny the mouse, Clark the elephant, and Rainbow Thunder the daredevil cat trying to solve problems using STEM concepts.[1][2]

A holiday special Chico Bon Bon and a Very Berry Holiday will be released on December 3, 2020.[3]

Characters[edit]

Main[edit]

  • Chico Bon Bon (voiced by Robbie Daymond): A male monkey with a sweatband, a pair of sneakers, and his titular iconic tool belt. Chico is the leader of his Fix-it Force friends, and while smart, he tends to forget things and can often lose track easily. Chico uses a wide variety of tools, and has access to many kinds of parts the job may need.
  • Rainbow Thunder (voiced by Dayci Brookshire): A female cat with a white bodysuit. Rainbow is the Fix-it Force's main driver, often operating Tool Force 1 and her own Glittercycle. True to her outfit, Rainbow tends to be a bit of a daredevil, and she often performs at stadium events when not hanging with her friends. Rainbow also describes the STEM concepts in every episode.
  • Clark (voiced by Anthony Tedesco): A male elephant in a red tracksuit with white stripes. Clark is the gentle giant of the Fix-it Force, and because of this, his personality is noticeably a lot more timid compared to his friends. Clark is the math and science expert of the Fix-it Force, and he often calculates the specifications of the materials needed for the Fix-it Force's latest projects. Clark also pilots the accordingly-named Clark-copter, a spheroid helicopter stored on the roof of Tool Force 1.
  • Tiny: A miniature mouse who lives and works with the Fix-it Force. Tiny is noticeably much more athletic than the rest of the Fix-it Force, often using martial arts skills along with her small size to work her way out of delicate situations. Tiny is the only Fix-It Force member who doesn't wear clothing on a regular basis, and unlike the others, she has dot eyes and she doesn't speak.

Recurring[edit]

  • Mr Buster McFluster (voiced by Cole Seaver): A male rabbit who does multiple jobs around Blunderberg.
  • Neil Ostrich: He is an ostrich who is a news reporter. He reports about the problems that the Fix-It-Force will solve. In the episode Egg-mergency, he has a wife named Nell Ostrich, and a daughter named Nina Ostrich.
  • Mayor Murphy: She is a poodle who is the mayor of Blunderberg. Most of her is known in Season 2.
  • Elkin John: He is an elk who is Clark's favorite singer. In the episode Chico Bon Bon and the Doggy Dilemma, it shows that he has a dog named Bernie.
  • Herb: He is a hermit crab who lives in Crabby Canyon. He likes piping hot food. He becomes crabby if he doesn't get piping hot food.
  • Ms Coleslaw: She is a skunk (but not stinky) who is the Fix-it-Force's neighbor. She likes solving detective cases, like Squirrelock Holmes.
  • Captain Squirrelbeard (voiced by Matthew Mercer): He is a pirate squirrel who sails over the 7 seas. His home is in Dessert Island.
  • Sprinkles: She is an octopus who is Captain Squirrelbeard's friend. She likes ice-creams.
  • The Lemurettis (Betty and Freddy): They are the owners of an Italian restaurant. They have a secret step named the boop.
  • Storm Cloud Lightning: He is also a cat, like Rainbow. He and Rainbow did the quadruple flip in the episode Spatula Showdown.
  • Conductor Clyde (voiced by Eric Bauza): He is a dog who is the conductor of the Choo-Choo Express.
  • Big Phil: He is a porcupine who is the neighbor of Mrs Coleslaw.
  • The Yum Yums (Gum Gum & Tum Tum: They are aliens from the planet Zum Zum. They like to eat toast. In the episode Space Toaster, Chico asks them to make their own Zum Zum toaster.
