34 roles

UglyBoth genders8-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Our story's youthful protagonist. Gawky and odd-looking, Ugly is shunned for its odd appearance. Innocent, easily confused, and very impressionable, Ugly doesn't understand why it is wrong to be different. However, their insecurities melt away as the character gradually changes from a gullible duckling to a wise swan, filled with self-esteem. Possessing a heart of gold, Ugly is the heart and soul of the show.

CatBoth genders8-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Our story's antagonist. Sly and cunning, Cat is a very hungry cat who preys on their next meal. They are manipulative, witty and above all, HUNGRY. Must have a good sense of comic timing.

IdaFemale8-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Ugly's loving mother and the only person who is supportive of the outcast child. Extremely protective of her son, she is a sweet, feisty, and determined duck.

DrakeMale8-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Ugly's father and Ida’s husband. Drake is a sarcastic, often immature character who is the stereotypical sitcom father - often shirking his parental duties. Should have good comic timing.

MaureenFemale8-18 y.o.All ethnicities

A moorhen and Ida's best friend. (Originally found on the moors, a moorhen is a hen that lives near the water.) Maureen genuinely loves Ida, but she can't resist a bit of good gossip. To the little ducklings, she is the typical annoying and overly affectionate "aunt."

GraceMale8-18 y.o.All ethnicities

The most distinguished duck on the lake and the school governor (overseer of the school). Proud, honest, genuine, and very aristocratic. All of the other animals look up to and respect Grace, and she is therefore a little bit haughty.

TurkeyBoth genders8-18 y.o.All ethnicities

The School Headmaster who is self-basting, self-boasted prime specimen. A bit snobbish, but deathly afraid of Thanksgiving.

HenriettaFemale8-18 y.o.All ethnicities

The school’s secretary and a friend of Maureen and Ida's, she is somewhat of a busybody.

GreylagBoth genders8-18 y.o.All ethnicities

A somewhat pompous and washed-up goose, Greylag is the Admiral of the squadron charged with Ugly's safe return. Greylag tends to over-glorify his mundane activities (i.e. migrating South) to the level of military operation status. Greylag’s partner, Dot, is the only one who truly knows how to handle them.

DotMale8-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Greylag's composed, respectful partner. Genuinely concerned with helping Ugly find their mother. Dot doesn't think that Greylag is an entirely capable leader, but kindly humors Greylag’s "over the top" actions.
