Idaho is a supporting character in The Amazing World of Gumball. He is a little potato from the countryside who follows beliefs and manners similar to the mannerism of the amish.


Idaho is an anthropomorphic potato, with a face, arms, and legs, all drawn in black. He is very small, and is quite possibly the tiniest character in the show so far. In Season 2, his face gets smaller, and he becomes slightly darker.


Idaho, having been born and raised in the countryside, follows amish beliefs and mannerisms, and speaks with a Southern twang. He also does not seem to be very bright.

  • Idaho was possibly the only survivor of the Joy Virus who was not cured or absent in the episode.
  • His family bears an appearance to that of the Amish, which could mean that he is too.
