Suppandi, Tinkle's most popular character, is a lovable goof who gets into trouble all the time. His antics leave his bosses speechless and the readers in splits. His hilarious misadventures make him the kind of everyman that is loved by all.
Shikari Shambu is one of Tinkle's most beloved character. He is a bumbling jungle explorer who is scared of everything from spiders to elephants. Shambu tries his best to avoid trouble and is happiest when he is lazing in his hammock and doing nothing. Unfortunately for Shambu, trouble finds him wherever he goes. Dealing with poachers, wild animals and pirates, he manages to emerge victorious. Children have been following his adventures for decades and enjoy reading about his latest exploits.
Scheming, cunning and devious. That's Tantri the evil Mantri! He is King Hooja’s Chief Minister, who dreams of capturing the throne and spends all his time carefully laying plans to get rid of the king. Crocodiles, catapults and booby traps, he has tried them all. Fortunately for King Hooja, the plans always backfire and Tantri has to go back to the drawing board.
Doob-doob the crocodile and Chamataka the fox are the kings of the forest — or so they think. In reality, Kalia the crow is the one who calls the shots. No matter how hard Doob-doob and Chamataka try, Kalia always foils their plans. Whenever the smaller animals are in danger from Doob-doob and Chamataka, it's Kalia to the rescue!
Pyarelal is a good-natured farmer with a very kind heart. Cheerful and easygoing, his homespun charm appeals to children. Pyarelal often comes up with inventive yet practical farming methods that inspire others to consider eco-friendly solutions themselves. Although he sometimes makes mistakes, he comes out of every situation with his enthusiasm and positive attitude intact.
Anwar is a mischievous and intelligent little boy who isn't afraid to say what he thinks when he thinks. Children relate to his exploits and enjoy his playful and quick-witted interactions with his parents.
