Idaho's family are minor characters in The Amazing World of Gumball. They first appeared in "The Bumpkin," when the Wattersons took a sick Idaho to them. They can be seen again in "The Name" in Gumball's subconscious. They reappear in "The Shell," where they watch the play of Gumball and Penny. Idaho's dad is also mentioned in "The Best" when Gumball tries to stop Idaho from seeing a video about Carmen. Idaho's sister is also mentioned in the Elmore Stream-It video, "Wet Cement Dash."
The entire family are all potatoes with skinny black limbs. They're simple country folk who live within an hour's drive away from the city, believing in hard work and simplicity. Their one appearance showed all of them working on the field together.
Fresh soil seems to be a cure for them as a sick Idaho was cured by being buried under it for a while. It can also be possible that junk food could make them sick (as it did to Idaho).
