| Character Information
Juke is a supporting character in The Amazing World of Gumball. He is a student that transferred to Elmore from his homeland Boomboxembourg. No one ever understands what he is saying, because he only speaks in music mode. He can speak in voice mode too, but it requires the switch behind his head to be switched to "voice." Because he cannot reach the switch, due to his very short arms, he asks other students to switch it for him. He is animated in "Squiggle Vision," similar to Ed, Edd 'n Eddy, the first season of Home Movies, and many other shows.
Juke is a "stereo-headed kid," which means his head looks like a radio. He wears a brown shirt, grey jeans, and white sneakers. He is fairly short and quite overweight (although never referred to as such), with short stubby legs and arms. Juke's only means of verbal communication is through beat boxing noises. Because no one can understand this language, he often has to use hand gestures to get his points across. He has a switch at the back of his head, which allows him to switch between voice or music. However, he is unable to reach said switch. In Season 2 onwards, he acquires eyebrows, and his eyes change colors depending on his mood. His shirt is different color as well and the top of his head is darker grey. The buttons on his head are a darker grey color, too.
