Octo is the Banana Cabana's jittery front desk clerk, and Howie's best bud (and roommate!). Scared of anything and everything, Octo tries to be the voice of reason, which usually ends up with him being in even more of a flailing, blubbery panic. As Howie's go-to-chum for all his adventures (and stunts!), Octo often finds himself in uncomfortable spots and hyperventilation-inducing situations.
Sloth is the Banana Cabana's slooooowwwww moving bellhop. Everything seems to take forever... except falling in love with Howie. That happened pretty fast. No matter how insane Howie's plan might be Sloth will ooze with smitten support.
Poodle is Howie's sister, and manager of the Banana Cabana's rival hotel, the Chatteau Chattoo. Maniacal and evil, yet a princess, Poodle is unwilling to get her paws dirty, preferring to let her hench-animal Batty do the dirty work for her. She dreams of one day taking over the Banana Cabana, the last piece of property on the beach that she doesn't already own.
Batty is short, jumpy, not very clever and flies about as well as a chicken. He is also Poodle's number one hench-animal. Batty is always going out of his way to service Poodle's every need and win her approval. Whether she ís in need of a trap-setter, a chauffeur, a pilot or a manicurist, he is the bat for the job.
