  • TinyHayley Carmichael: The central character of the show. He is turquoise, has a pink antenna on top of his head, and a pink button on his belly which opens the lid of his head, uncovering a couple of tools which he uses for fixing machines and robots. He is also responsible for pulling the Day-Night Lever at the right times. Tiny lives on the Nut and Bolt Tree, right next to the Day-Night Lever. He is also the smallest of the Little Robots. He always has a positive view on things, and always tries to help his friends to live in peace and harmony together.
  • Messy – Jimmy Hibbert: The robot dog of the Little Robots' world, he loves things dirty and messy. Scary teaches him tricks and makes shows with him, where he's known as "Messy the Wonderhound". It is possible that some of Messy's sounds may have been recycled sounds from one of Cosgrove Hall's previous shows: Noddy's Toyland Adventures, which Hibbert also recorded lines for.
  • SportyLenny Henry: The strongest and fittest and is the eldest of the Little Robots. he's constantly running, playing games and sports, and never gets tired of making himself stronger and fitter. Sporty has his own, private gym with a trampoline and a conveyor belt.
  • Stretchy – Jimmy Hibbert: A very organized and efficient Little Robot, he's in charge of sorting the junk that comes from the chute on the junkyard. He's blue, tall and thin and has a long, flexible neck. Though his main worry is to keep the junkyard organized so his friends can use, his workaholism and obsession for organisation sometimes causes problems – on one occasion, he accidentally tied a knot on his neck due to overwork. He lives in the junkyard, inside an abandoned radiator.
  • RustyMorwenna Banks: A feminine and sensitive Little Robot who gets nervous at times. She has a red dress which is made of painted rusty metal and wears a funnel-like hat on top of her head. She lives in an old, rusty bucket, and she constantly has new ideas on how to improve and decorate it. She's very impulsive and accidentally prone, though, and tense situations or anything that causes her to get overexcited can make her overheat and release puffs of steam from her funnel. She also has a notable, childish crush on Sporty.
  • StripyMartin Clunes: A big Little Robot made with colored stripes of metal, he's practically the complete opposite of Sporty: moves and talks slowly, but he's a deep and introspective thinker, also a specialist in flowers and storytelling. His best friend is Teddy, his metallic teddy bear, and his favourite activities are taking care of his garden, telling stories to his friends and playing games that require little agility and lots of skill.He is the Largest of the Little Robots.
  • NoisySu Pollard: A red Little Robot who speaks loudly, has a trumpet for a nose, plays instruments, writes and sings songs, and loves whatever kind of noise she can produce. Her house is an old drum, with a xylophone-themed entryway. Her passion for loud music and noise can often be bothersome for her friends, but she's also a great entertainer. Her laughter is unforgettable, too.
  • SpottyEmma Chambers: A round, heavy, yellow, Little Robot covered in colored spots, wears specs, and can retract all her limbs and roll around like a ball for fast locomotion. She has a strong personality, likes rules and orders, and tends to give orders to her friends (often causing conflicts with her friends). Her dream is to be an artist.
  • ScaryMike Hayley: A purple Little Robot with a black cape. Scary is a great actor with a Donald Sinden-esque voice and likes to scare his friends (though he's often not successful) and stage shows to entertain his friends. He has his own stage, which is also his house.
  • Flappy the Bat – Jimmy Hibbert: a character from the show.
  • The Sparky TwinsMel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins: A debatably greenish blue Little Robot couple with different colored belly buttons. The twins are almost identical, are full of energy, love dancing and doing practical jokes on other robots. Sparky One has a pink spot on her belly and Sparky Two has a yellow spot on her belly. They are able to communicate over distances by exchanging electrical rays through the antennae on their heads, and their catch phrase is Gimmie Three, Sparkee!. They live in a pair of speakers by an old record turntable. The Sparky Twins often hang out with Tiny and sometimes Sparky Two might have a bit of a crush on Tiny.
  • Other characters are the Robo-Birds (who are also voiced by Jimmy Hibbert), who often play important roles on the show.
