Gaylord Robinson (commonly known as Mister Robinson within the show) is the Wattersons' grouchy next-door neighbor. He lives with his wife, Margaret Robinson, and usually gets into arguments with her. They both raised one child, Rocky Robinson.


Mr. Robinson is a strange looking puppet-like creature. His body is shaped like a slightly rounded cylinder, and in terms of relative height, he only stands a few inches above Gumball. Grey-blue fuzz covers his entire body, all except his large and protruding nose, which is pink.

Mr. Robinson wears a fancy looking navy blue vest with a tie and large collar coupled with brown pants. He has large horn-rimmed glasses that help him see with his tiny eyes. He also has a noticeable unibrow. When he talks, his mouth opens in typical Muppet fashion.

When Mr. Robinson is yelling, he sometimes is frantically raised in the air in a fit of blind fury.


Mr. Robinson is known for his uptight and grouchy personality. He's obsessed with money, status, and arguing. He deeply despises Gumball and can barely tolerate the rest of his family. This is because he considers them to be a tacky and cheap family and views himself and his property as better than the Wattersons'.

He also has a very short temper and can fly into a raging stupor if he's pushed too far. Despite his rough and angry behavior, Mrs. Robinson isn't intimidated by his anger, and he and his wife share an oddly healthy relationship that revolves around arguing and yelling at each other.

On the inside however, he seems to have an energetic and bold personality, as shown in "The Debt".

Episode Appearances

Season 1

  • "The Debt": Mr. Robinson supposedly saves Gumball's life, which convinces Gumball that he must repay his debt. He sings the infamous "I Wanna Be Free" number in this episode.
  • "The Painting": This appearance is debatable, but Mr. Small supposedly smashes a painting of Mr. Robinson in a powdered wig.
  • "The Goons": Gumball accidentally throws Anais' notepad on his windshield, obscuring his vision and causing him to crash his car into a fire hydrant.
  • "The Poltergeist": Mrs. Robinson, frustrated at the fact that she and Mr. Robinson haven't been arguing lately, kicks him out. Gumball hides him in the Wattersons' attic, where he and Darwin help him get Mrs. Robinson back
  • "The Wand": Mr. Robinson appears in Richard's flashback. He also appears later on and criticizes/makes fun of Richard when he wishes for the temperature to go down.
  • "The Car": He is pestered by Gumball and Darwin throughout the episode.

Season 2

  • "The Colossus": Hector destroys his house, but he was too busy reading the newspaper to notice.
  • "The Job": He gets thrown into the air by one of Richard's reality-distorting waves.
  • "Halloween": He faints when he hears a moose head speak.
  • "Christmas": He and his wife appears in the Christmas is Cancelled number. They also appear at the end along with the rest of the residents of Elmore.
  • "The Virus": A laser beam from Gumball's microwave burnt his turkey.

Cultural References

  • Gaylord's relationship with Gumball and Darwin is somewhat similar to the relationship that George Wilson has with Dennis Mitchell from Dennis the Menace as well as the relationship that Squidward Tentacles has with Spongebob Squarepants and Patrick Star from Spongebob Squarepants and the relationship that Benson has with Mordecai and Rigby from Regular Show.
