Peter Rabbit

With a fondness of radishes and the love of adventure, Peter is the inspirational special friend you wished to hang out with when you were young. Peter's a brave, mischievous, impulsive, resilient, charismatic, clever, and tenacious little rabbit. Often in and out of danger in his majestic world, Peter needs all of his special qualities to outsmart the villains.

Benjamin Bunny

At 5, Benjamin is slightly younger than Peter, always up for anything Peter suggests and utterly hero-worships his big cousin. This 'funny bunny' is one of life's clumsy individuals. He always seems to be at the wrong place at the wrong time, usually ending in comic results. However, Peter couldn't wish for a more good-natured, loyal companion.

Lily Bobtail

This practical, quirky bunny is most at home following her passion of reading. Her unquenchable thirst for knowledge and an innate curiosity leads her to be more methodical in her approach to adventures than Peter. Her logical approach and patient attention to detail can help her friends see something vital others might have missed.

Mrs. Rabbit

A strong, practical mother, Mrs. Rabbit provides for her brood in the most resourceful and traditional ways. Mrs. Rabbit represents the heart of Peter's home life. No matter what happens to him, no matter how much trouble he gets into, Peter knows that his mother will always welcome him home with unconditional love and a warm embrace.

Flopsy & Mopsy

Peter's 8-year-old twin sisters, Flopsy and Mopsy, pride themselves on being model daughters. Obsessed with tidiness and order, they are the 'girly-girls' of the series. Like most twins, they can often tell what the other is thinking. As the oldest children, they often feel duty bound to point out to their little brother the error of his ways.

Cotton-Tail

The youngest of Mrs. Rabbit's brood, Cotton-tail is a lovable and adorable 18-month-old. A child of few words, she clearly adores her big brother Peter and tries to copy his every move. Cotton-tail has an uncanny way of involving herself in Peter's adventures. She may be the smallest rabbit in the series, but she's one of its BIGGEST stars!

Squirrel Nutkin

Above the world that the rabbits inhabit lives a squadron of squirrels who rule the upper canopy with a fascinating disorderly lifestyle. Above the treetops there are no rules. Anything goes. Their leader, Squirrel Nutkin, is excitable, funny and animated, He's an agile and comical trickster who loves to taunt and confuse the inhabitants of the wood.

Mr. McGregor & His Cat

The only human in the show (we only see his hands and feet), Mr. McGregor lives on a farm close to Peter's home. To Peter, McGregor's is a one-stop shop for every kind of vegetable. Luckily for Peter the old farmer's not as young as he used to be and is helped in policing his garden by a large white cat, equally old, who likes to nap in the midday sun.

Mr. Tod

A vain, smooth-talking fox, Mr. Tod takes great pride in being the wood's top predator. He's an over-the-top villain who thinks he's something of an evil genius. Though in theory Mr. Tod presents a threat to Peter, in fact he never has a hope of capturing his prey. What makes Tod ineffective is the great gap between how smart he thinks he is and reality.
