Wally Gator is an anthropomorphic alligator and the main title character of the Wally Gator animated television shorts. His voice was originated by Daws Butler.

Character description

Wally is an alligator with green skin. Although part of a predatory species, he isn't shown to have any visible teeth, but is sometimes seen cracking a smile of flat pearly whites. In Jellystone!, he instead has a set of sharp fangs. Wally's attire consists of a collar, shirt cuffs, and a purple pork pie hat.

Wally is a cheerful and curious fellow who resides in a cage inside of Mr. Twiddle's zoo. Despite his friendly behavior, he tends to get bored of living in his habitat quick, and resorts to escaping the zoo as a means of wanting to go outside. His curiosity gets the best of Wally, however, as he occasionally bumps into humans who are either afraid of the alligator letting loose or want to turn his skin into luggage. He rarely gets the upper hand in any situation. But even when he succeeds, his luck turns on him to the point that he sometimes wants to go back to his zoo cage. His catchphrase is "Oh, Fuddle De Doo!", which he usually says when he is either surprised or in a tough situation.

Wally is less intelligent in the Jellystone! reboot.

Wally is portrayed as the town ditz who keeps getting into accidents, leading to many surgeries at Jellystone Hospital, that unfortunately get interrupted by either Yogi's incompetence or the entire staff getting distracted by some disaster. He once asked a stop sign if it was his father. He lives in a rundown shack that appears to be haunted, driving most people away from him.

Behind the scenes

In popular culture

  • In the Robot Chicken "Laff-A-Munich" segment of the episode "Ban on the Fun," he is seen among the other Yogi Yahooeys teammates who are taken hostage by the Really Rottens, at some point during the massacre, he was murdered himself.
  • At the end of The Fairly OddParents episode "Mice-Capades," Timmy has moved on from Sleazy and Cheezy! and onto Punchie and Munchie, with Munchie resembling Wally, but Wanda turns it off before Poof sees any more cartoon violence. Poof, however, does the same thing he did to Vicky and Timmy turning them into Sleazy and Cheezy, by simply transforming Wanda and Cosmo into Punchie and Munchie, respectively.
