Overview

Gaspard and Lisa engage in various adventures and activities. Though they try to do good deeds, their behavior sometimes causes disturbance to other people, especially Mr. Huget (pronounced hoo-zhay). When they learn that they have created a problem, they say, "Uh oh! Catastrophe!" But when they fix the problem, they shout, "Yes, triumph!"

Characters

Gaspard's Family[2]

  • Gaspard (Connor Fitzgerald)[3] (Peter Harris in US version) is an anthropomorphic 6-year-old black dog. He wears a blue scarf, and lives in a high rise apartment. Like children his age, he attends school, and that school happens to be the same one attended by Lisa.
    Gaspard is also the newest member in his school. During his early days in class, he was a shy fellow whom the children laugh at because he brought a large bag with a lot of props. Thankfully, Lisa made him look special in front of them, and he got over his shyness.
    While he is judo practitioner, Gaspard does have a slight fear of chickens.
  • Charles (Jo Wyatt): Gaspard's older brother who is a 13 years old. He is a chess enthusiast, and always wears headphones around his neck. Though he acts like a snob to Gaspard and Lisa sometimes, he also shows some acts of kindness.
  • Gaspard's Dad (Richard Epcar): Gaspard and Charles' father who wears a blue and green striped tie. He works as a newspaper columnist, and is even a competitive cyclist. He is also allergic to cats.
  • Gaspard's Mom (Teresa Gallagher):[4] Gaspard and Charles' mother. She is a housewife and wears a purple pearl necklace.
  • Mamie Mathilde (Teresa Gallagher): Gaspard's paternal grandmother. She lives in a blue house far from the city of Paris with a pet dog named Prince.

Lisa's Family[2]

  • Lisa (Kisholi Perera-Merry)[3] (Charlotte Cohen in US version) is an anthropomorphic 6- year old white dog. She wears a red scarf, and lives in a pile of shipping containers. Wherever Gaspard goes, Lisa is often with him, even on Gaspard's visits to his grandmother. She also likes to sing and dance, especially when it comes to cheering up Gaspard whenever he gets glum. And whenever she cries, she sniffs but sheds no tears.
  • Victoria (Bessie Cursons):[5] Lisa's older sister, she is 10 years old. Both she and Charles share the distinction of being occaisionally snobbish to Gaspard and Lisa, although Charles is slightly nicer. Her only compliment to Lisa occurred when her little sister learned to ride a bicycle without training wheels.
  • Lila (Teresa Gallagher):[4] is the baby sister of Lisa and Victoria. She wears a purple onesie. A full-length episode of the series tells the story of when Lila was born and how Lisa was jealous at first but then began to love her sister.
  • Lisa's Papa (Richard Epcar): is the father of Lisa and her two sisters. He works as a carpenter and wears a gray jacket.
  • Lisa's Mama (Teresa Gallagher):[4] Lisa, Victoria and Lila's mother. She is a housewife and wears a green necklace.
  • Lisa's Grandfather: Lisa's deep-voiced grandparent who wears a brown vest. He enjoys biscuits and is a bit of a magician. He also has a wife whom he has been married to for four decades.
