MISS BG (8 years-old)
- BG is a true offspring of the new millennium
- She says one thing and does another and openly tries to manipulate every situation to her advantage.
- But don’t get the wrong idea, BG’s not a bad kid. Her intentions are always good, it’s just her methods that leave much to be desired.
- She’s got a big heart, is incredibly loyal and is lots of fun to be around. Too bad, she can be a real headache!

GEORGE (3 years-old)
- George has been trained well, he knows that BG is always right, but that doesn’t mean he does everything she wants.
- George is a fast learner and just like BG, is not above calling in reinforcements for help… namely Mom and Dad.
- BG’s little brother, George, is three and a half years old, and always wants to do whatever BG is doing. It drives BG mad.
- The things George loves most are Mom and Dad, his big sister and his pet hamster, Albert…but not necessarily in that order.

- Warm, sympathetic, and more understanding of her daughter than BG realizes, Mom is tough but with a touch of irony and a wink of the eye…
- Mom works from the house as a freelance journalist and is always busy trying to juggle her career whilst looking after her
growing family and flaky sister, Alice.
- Is it any surprise that sometimes Mom has had enough?!
She doesn’t lose her cool very often, but when she does… even BG runs for cover.

- Good-natured and easygoing, Dad is the local vet.
- He’s aware that BG has him wrapped around her finger… even when controlling the remote for the TV.
- BG is Daddy’s Girl… and she milks it all the time. BG knows that Dad will say ‘yes’ to anything while watching TV and on the rare occasion when he says ‘no’, a few tears will work wonders. Still,
- Dad has his breaking point, and when he makes up his mind, that’s it! No one, not even BG, can change it.

- Not only just the family pet, Albert is also quite a character.
- In true ‘Disney’ style, Albert is the fun element of the series.
- George and BG share the responsibility of looking after Albert, although George often does a better job than his sister.
- Albert can be seen as a spin-off character in small clips included in the show. He is then portrayed in funny situations
related to the theme of each episode.
