The Cramp Twins is an animated series created by cartoonist Brian Wood. The show was produced in association with Cartoon Network Europe. It is about Wayne (Tom Kenny) and Lucien (Kath Soucie) Cramp, not-so identical twins who live with their hygiene-obsessed mother (Nicole Oliver) and their Western-obsessed father (Ian James Corlett) in the fictional town of Soap City. Sadly, but obviously, neither get along. Wayne's friend is Dirty Joe (Lee Tockar) and the girl that has a crush on him is Wendy Winkle (Jayne Paterson), though he hates her. His enemies are Miss. Hillary Hissy (Cathy Weseluck, who also plays Tony's mom, Lily, and Mrs. Winkle) and Lucien's friends are Tony Parsons (Terry Klassen who also plays Tony's dad, Seth) and Mari (Tabitha St. Germain).

Contents

Main characters

  • Wayne Archibald Cramp: The tallest and least intelligent of the two brothers. Normally spending time thrashing his older brother, he also likes to collect various things he scavenges from the junkyard. He is constantly annoyed by Wendy Winkle, who has a crush on him. He also frequently uses insults that have the suffix "-pants", i.e. "Girlpants!"
  • Lucien Cramp: Lucien is the smartest out of the two twins, but also considered the 'eco-loser' . He likes to go to the swamp of Soap City, his home town, with his friend Tony. Lucien is technically the oldest one of the two twins as he was born first in the opening credits.
  • Mrs. Cramp (Dorothy Cramp): Mrs Cramp is mother to the twins and wife of Mr. Cramp. She is a clean freak, someone who cannot abide the sight of dirt. It is revealed in a number of episodes that her first name is Dorothy, or as Wayne puts it in one episode, 'sometimes Dot, never Dotty'.
  • Mr. Cramp (Horace Cramp): Mr Cramp works at the local soap and cleaner products factory. He is also a 3rd-class cowboy, and is always fruitlessly trying to impress his boss, Mr Winkle. His first name was revealed to be Horace in the episode where Wayne is ordering cereals and ends up unleashing space poppers into the swamp.
  • Tony Parsons: Best friend of Lucien (sometimes argues with him) and a swamp kid. He possesses a vast knowledge about the swamp and his kin's traditions. He has many brothers and sisters. His dad's first name is Seth and his mom's first name is Lily. He is short and often finds trouble because of this.
  • Wendy Winkle: Wendy is the daughter of Walter Winkle, rendered a spoiled brat by her lifestyle. Wendy is ruthless in her demanding of anything that can be attained within her parents' immense wallet. She is also tremendously rude to all except Wayne. It is possible that Wendy is Half-Swamp due to her Father's swamp descent.
  • Mari Phelps: Mari is Lucien's other friend. She often co-operates with Lucien on his environment-conserving efforts, but often can't help desiring a bit of power. She is a foster child and is looked after by a happiness-obsessed, brown-haired family with odd customs. She is like the black sheep of her foster family. (Alternative spelling: Marie.)

Black Sheep may refer to many different things: // English language Black sheep is a derogatory colloquial term in the English language meaning an outsider or one who is different in a way which others disapprove of. ...

Major characters

  • Dirty Joe: An old man who lives in a trailer and Wayne's friend. He is an unseen character (except for a hand).
  • Walter Winkle: Mr. Cramp's boss and Wendy's father, CEO and "Grand Bubba" of the Haskem corporation. He lives in a mansion and is suggested to be a swamp person, probably by descent (as hinted at in many episodes.), but vehemently denies it.
  • Hillary Hissy: Hillary (Miss Hissy) is Wayne's, Lucien's, Wendy's and Mari's large teacher. She hates Wayne and she is a friend of Dirty Joe. They were thought to be dating once, but it turned out she was only tutoring him. Miss Hissy has also been shown to have a crush on Horace Cramp.
  • Seth Parsons: Tony's dad and a swamp person. He and the Parson family live near the swamp. His wife (or ex-wife) is Lily (As of the episode "Is Mr. Winkle a swamp folk?" Lily did not even appear).
  • Mr. Pretty: A "friend" of Wayne and Lucien's. He is also known as a bully (his mom bullied Dorothy Cramp, his father bullied Horace Cramp.) In the European version he is the overly peppy principle of the School, whose methods to an extent annoy the Cramps.
  • Lillian "Lily" Parsons: Seth's wife (or ex-wife) and the mother of Tony and his siblings. Lucien once had a crush on her, much to Tony's annoyance.
  • Horace Phelps: Mari's dad. He worked as a barber in his first appearance and then as the vice principle of the school. (he is neither in the European version, instead an optician).
  • Principal Earlington Quatermaine: Earlington is the principal of the school and Hillary's boss. He was Mrs. Phelps' ex-boyfriend. He is absent from the European version.

Television shows and stage plays sometimes include continuing characters — characters who are currently in frequent interaction with the other characters and who influence current story events — who are never seen or heard by the audience and only described by other characters. ...

Minor characters

  • Mrs. Winkle: Wendy's mother and Walter's wife. She behaves more or less like her husband, but ignores the fact he may be a swamp person. In one of the episodes she appeared to have the same dress as Mrs. Cramp.
  • Grandma Cramp: Dorothy Cramp's mother and Wayne and Lucien's grandmother. She acts more like Wayne then Lucien and obviously prefers him. She also hates her son-in-law and was easily deceived into thinking Tony was Horace Cramp 'shrunk.'
  • Barber: The barber who replaced Mr. Phelps.

The Winkles

Is Mr Winkle Swamp Folk? There seems to be various evidence from sources that Mr. Winkle is actually a "swamp folk" and a relation of Tony by ancestors. In the episode where the toilet is clogged Tony and his father cites "the deeper you go, the more you know" in realisation that their basement links to Mr. Winkle's mansion's foundations, where his "ancestors left for a pure and earthy existence". In hearing this he decided to pay Mr. Parsons the sum for cleaning the house that he before refused to pay. Other sources are when the swamp was to be replaced with his Wendy's "Sweet Dream Valley", Mr. Parsons pays a visit to Mr. Winkle reminding him "you can take the man out of the swamp but you can't take the swamp out of the man", reminding him they used to race and they won a prize, with his name as "eely", again, suggesting that he was a swamp folk. Mr. Winkle is almost always present and knows all swamp phenomenon such as the mystery egg which gave good luck, a swamp tradition. He also frequently visits the swamp to eat dumb radishes. Furthermore, he knows the "crested marsh swallow" and knows they were rare and orders them to be delivered to his residence, Tony Parsons beforehand telling Lucien they are "delicious". Mr Winkle shows he wants to eat them by his order. In the episode of "Soap Day" where it rains soap, Lucien stated that soap folk have an immunity that outsiders and swamp folk don't have to it. Later, Tony is seen delivering a package to Mr. Winkles house, where Mr. Winkle and his daughter Wendy were coughing because they lacked immunity. In compiling all of this data it can be argued Mr. Winkle is a swamp folk even though he repeatedly denies it to the public, though The Parsons have kept this secret. Mr Winkle and Parsons are friends, in the episode where they camp out in the night Mr. Winkle pays a visit to "old man Parsons" to prepare his food for him, perhaps like he did in his past.
