Bennie, aka Buccaneer Burger, spokesman for the Buccaneer Burger chain, loves his life. He has been a shill for the Big Buc Burger, Swabby Soda and 1st Mate Fries for a long time. Bennie is not ashamed that he is burger spokesman...it pays the bills. His job requires him to show up, cut a ribbon, say "aaarggh me buckos!" a few times and sail off into the sunset, on the whole not a bad gig. And with fame comes chicks, and old Bennie considers himself quite the lady's man. Chicks dig a man in uniform, or in Bennie's case a man in a pirate hat, eyepatch and wooden leg. Bennie once considered a career as an Olympic speed skater, but plans were derailed when he lost his leg in a freakish bowling accident.
Woolie is a sock puppet who once hosted a kid's show on PBS station WWTF in the 50's. He was stuck with a very limited budget but in spite of that, his show lasted 12 years...kids back then didn't expect too much. In a stroke of good luck Woolie invested in synthetic fibers and he saw his small income now augmented by a huge return on his investments. Woolie considers himself a self made sock. He eventually left the fast paced world of educational TV and retired. Unlike Spunky he doesn't miss the grind of putting a TV show togther, he's very happy to be out of the limelight. Woolie has a problem keeping his eyes attached, and has an extensive collection of buttons in case he loses one. Woolie has a twin brother.
