| Margaret Robinson
| Character Information
Margaret Robinson is a supporting character in The Amazing World of Gumball. She is the wife of Gaylord Robinson. Despite her and her husband's constant bickering, they both love each other. Margaret wears a wig as seen when Gumball and Darwin make a ball fall on her wig so it falls off.
Mrs. Robinson has the same basic body structure of her husband. The main difference is that she has much larger hips and is much skinnier. Her head is also not directly a part of her body, as it is attached to her neck.
Her yarn-like blonde wig is very plentiful, and most of it is kept up in a large beehive hairstyle, while the rest forms her bangs. She also wears a light-brown and white polka-dotted bow on her hair. Like her husband, she has a very large and protruding nose below her two beady eyes, which are bordered by what seems to be purple eye shadow.
Her usual outfit consists of a white and brown zig-zagging shirt and a pair of dark brown jeans. She also appears to wear white pumps.
Similar to her husband, Mrs. Robinson is rarely in a happy mood. She makes no attempts at verbal communication, and instead she merely grunts and mutters her words resentfully. Even though she loves her husband very much, they almost never get along and it seems that they are always angry about something. In one instance, she was about to marry someone else when Mr. Robinson was sick, showing that she's not actually loyal to her husband. A greater insight into her personality and the reason for it came in the episode "The Wicked," when Gumball and Darwin were confronted by Gaylord Robinson in the attic.
"Margaret is, and always will be, a mystery. Nothing happened in her life to justify the way she is. Some people aren't looking for anything logical, they can't be bought, reasoned or negotiated with. Sometimes man just wants to watch the world burn." - Gaylord Robinson
Mrs. Robinson also seems to have sadistic tendencies, such as cutting the flowers off of plants for no reason and only attending Mr. Robinson's performance to see him fail. It seems her personality is not the result of childhood trauma or incident, but because she was simply born that way. According to her manufacturers tag seen in "The Wicked" during the maternity ward scene, it details that Mrs Robinson is "Seventy percent cotton, thirty percent polyester and made in... the fiery pits of the underworld.". No explanation is given for her actions or attitude, and her husband's only answer to it is that she is evil, just because she is evil.
In addition, Margaret seems very unfaithful to the marriage between her and her husband, often leaving him for other men. This trait is displayed both in "The Boss," in which she leaves her husband after taking his wallet, and "The Slide," in which she is seen using the dating service Trawlr (worsened by the fact she's speaking with her son) despite the fact she's in a marriage that is decades-old.
