Character Bio

Licky is a purple anteater who almost always has his tongue sticking out. He is an insane character who, as his name suggests, has a knack of licking things (supposedly a mental disorder). Like Nutty, he enjoys candy. He also enjoys eating ants, though he will try to catch any insect if he gets the chance.

Licky presents unique scenarios in episodes, as his incredibly long tongue and habit of licking things have been known to put him in a variety of situations, from bothering other characters to getting into danger. Licky's injuries largely involve his tongue getting flattened, stuck, pulled, etc. He also sometimes kills characters by biting or eating their body parts for food.

Licky shows no or very little intelligence, and shows some signs of mental retardation. So far, his only intelligent instincts are when he attempts to save himself from his own death, mostly involving his tongue. He seems to have few friends, as he is insane.

Licky may have a psychosocial disorder, as he does not interact correctly socially. Because of this, he seems to have no friends; with the exceptions of Flaky, Howdy, Lessy, Hippy, Lary, Bun, and Mary. He seems to anger other characters, and is not liked very much.

  • He is a rival of Nutty, Sniffles, and the ants.
  • He has been called by some as a cross between Nutty and Sniffles.
  • Many of his deaths involve blood loss and splattering.
  • He is proven to be allergic to insect/hornet stings.
  • He seems to resemble a giant anteater.
  • His survival rate is 30% (or debatably 20%)
  • He is the first character to kill an ant, besides Sniffles (who ate a prehistoric ant).
  • According to a commentary, the ants hate him more than they hate Sniffles.
  • He would later be redesigned; his light purple stripe and arms becoming yellow, tail enlarged, hair and fur color slightly altered. However, as of Pole Kringle, his arm and stripe colors would revert back to light purple.
  • He is loosely based off the Pokemon Lickitung.
