PB&J Otter was an animated children's series which premiered on Playhouse Disney on March 15, 1998. A total of 65 episodes were produced during the course of its three season run, with the "farewell" episode airing on September 24, 2000. The series centered on the Otter family who lived in the rural fishing community of Lake Hoohaw. Most stories revolved around the Otter kids: older brother Peanut, younger sister Jelly, and diapered baby Butter (named after the peanut butter and jelly sandwich), as well as their friends and neighbors. Supporting characters included gossipy Cranes, overly hygienic Raccoons, a junk-collecting Mayor, and some very wealthy Poodles.

The show was created by Jim Jinkins (the creator of Doug), and executive produced by David Campbell in close conjunction with Harvard University's Cognitive Skills Group, "Project Zero". The Group's job was to monitor each and make sure the material had a positive educational message. In that respect, PB&J Otter was one of the few shows of its kind on the air at that time.

As of now, PB&J Otter has been taken off the air completely in the USA, and there is no indication that it will return anytime soon. It also aired on Playhouse Disney Channel Asia up until July 1, 2009. It continues to air on the Australian Disney Channel and the British Playhouse Disney channel.



  • Peanut Otter (is voiced by Myles Anderson) The brother of family. Seven years old and eldest of the Otter children, Peanut is smart and can be a little funny at times, but always loyal. He hates dancing, especially "The Noodle Dance" but he still does anyway.
  • Baby Butter Otter (is voiced by Jade Chatson) The baby of the family. She can't talk yet but says an odd word now and then.
  • Jelly Otter (is voiced by Jenell Brook Slack) The middle girl of the family. She is full of creative ideas and loves to do the "The Noodle Dance". She also loves to sing songs, except "From Our Heart." When anybody finishes the noodle dance she says: "I got it!"
  • Opal Otter (is voiced by Katy Stephens) - She is the wife of Ernest Otter and PB&J's mother. Opal is caring, but can be strict when necessary. She has curly hair and wears thick glasses and pink slippers.
  • Ernest Otter (is voiced by Karl Woolley) - is PB&J's father and the husband of Opal Otter. He owns his own hardware store on Lake Hoohaw.
  • Anna ('Aunt Nanner') Otter – Opal's sister. Has an unspecified job in show business, and travels the world. She knows many famous people and seems quite well off (but not nearly as rich as the Snooties), but always has time for her family. Married to her boyfriend, Redolfo.
  • Pinch Raccoon (is voiced by Karina Lambert) A friend of PB&J. She thinks of herself as beautiful and a ballerina, and spends most of her time dancing or making herself more pretty. She is Jelly's best friend.
  • Scootch Raccoon (is voiced by Cody Pennes)- Pinch's little brother. He is rambunctious and a bit of a trouble-maker to his friends and parents. He doesn't speak very much, generally only saying "Sorry, sorry, my fault" when he invariably knocks something over. He makes a lot of mistakes by accident, but he always apologizes for what he's done. Sometimes he feels left out when he makes mistakes, but everybody loves him, including Pinch, his sister.
  • Munchy Beaver (is voiced by Dayle Hodge)- A beaver who has quite the appetite for wood. He often tend to chew on things made of wood when he is nervous. He scares easily, and is rather jittery. He tends to have a low self-esteem. He is one of PB&J's friends.
  • Cap'n Crane (is voiced by Justin Flechter) - A 'watchbird' which he calls himself. He keeps an eye on Lake Hoohaw and its population, in order to keep everyone safe, though he tends to overdo it from time to time, often being too safe for his own good. He isn't that smart, either, which tends to complicate things, though his heart is in the right place. His catchphrase is 'Watchbird Alert!'. He is Connie Crane's husband.
  • Connie Crane (is voiced by Sarah Davison) Cap'n Crane's wife. She is usually seen sleeping and is often woken by her husband for unimportant alarms. She tends to think Cap'n Crane overdoes his job a bit and generally keeps an eye on him to keep him from making mistakes. She is very sarcastic most of the time.
  • Flick Duck (is voiced by William Stokes)- A duck who is sometimes clumsy and rude, but just like the others, he always apologizes for making mistakes. He is one of PB&J's friends. He also loves and can't resist babbleberry pie. His catchphrase is: "Cheese and quackers!".
  • Mayor Jeff (is voiced by Bruce Bayley Johnson) - The mayor of Lake Hoohaw. He is a wise, old otter who loves to help out the kids. He also is known for his collection of various treasures.
  • Ootsie and Bootsie Snootie - Son and daughter of Edouard and Georgina; rich, spoiled and generally bored, they nonetheless enjoy the company of the other children when they tire of playing with the newest toy or gadget their parents have bought them. Even though they are mean to PB&J and their friends, PB&J and the others still help them when they have a problem.

Minor characters

  • Wanda and Walter Raccoon: - Pinch and Scootch's parents. Wanda is the post raccoon for Lake Hoohaw, while Walter works as the area trash collector, requiring him to sleep most of the day as he gets up very early.
  • Shirley Duck (voiced by Corinne Orr): - Flick's mother. Very softhearted, she rarely so much as raises her voice to Flick, much less punishes him. Flick takes advantage of this whenever possible.
  • Betty-Lou Beaver: - Munchy's mother. She is proud of her son and tries to help him become more outspoken.
  • Bubbles: The Otters' pet fish.
  • Mr. Bigdog: - Edouard's boss.
  • Measles: - Munchy's frog.
  • Edouard Snootie: - Father of Ootsie and Bootsie.
  • Georgina Snootie: - Mother of Ootsie and Bootsie.
  • Billy Duck: - Flick's older cousin. Billy was once thought to be a bully by the Lake Hoohaw kids due to Flick's remembering something improperly, but he turned out to be kind. He may look scary, because he has a stern expression, neverthless he still smiles and is kind to the ones around him.
  • Ricky Raccoon: - Pinch's and Scootch's cousin. He is also kind, and he may be a little older than Pinch.
  • Simon Mouse: - A little field mouse boy who mistook Flick for the Ice Moose. Flick dressed himself as the Ice Moose and took Simon to the stage where everybody, including Simon's parents, was there.
  • Redolfo: Boyfriend (and now husband) of Annette Otter. Usually transports her to and from Lake Hoohaw.

The "Lost" Direct-to-Video Movie?

Shortly after the show went out of production, it was reported that a direct-to-video PB&J Otter movie was in the works. The report was substantiated when it was discovered that a veteran Sesame Street / Muppets writer named Joey Mazzarino was attached to the project. Unfortunately, the movie, which was to have been titled "PB&J Otter and the Legend of Snaildarter" never made it past the scripting stage.
