The Wattersons are the main characters in the television series, The Amazing World of Gumball. They are the neighbors of The Robinsons. Despite being a tight family, they are known to have very serious arguments at times (as shown in "The Responsible").
The Watterson family is quite unusual; they consist of two rabbits, two cats, and a goldfish. Gumball and Nicole are both blue cats, while Anais and Richard are both pink rabbits. Darwin is a goldfish and was originally the family pet until he grew legs, gained the ability to speak, and became able to eat food other than fish flakes. Granny Jojo is Richard's mother, and Nicole's father was mentioned in "The End".
