Banana Barbara is a minor character in The Amazing World of Gumball. She is Banana Joe's mother, and the wife of Banana Bob. She and her husband first appeared in "The Responsible."


Banana Barbara is an anthropomorphic banana. She is nearly identical to the rest of her family, with the exception of a blue and white polka-dot bow, lipstick, and eyelashes.

In Season 2, she acquired eyebrows and a lighter skin.


As shown in "The Mothers," Banana Barbara does not seem to be very bright, and is rather oblivious to her surroundings. She has also been shown to have a very creepy demeanor.
