Support Group members

Concerned about his out of work friend, Tree frog Ron gets Scraps into a support group for out of work Mascots. It's a collection of Characters who for one reason or another are no longer employed, and are having trouble dealing with life after being a mascot.

This is Darryl. He is the wimpy former hippie social worker who runs the support group. He's a bit of a panty waste, and only barely has control over the group. His heart is in the right place though. He tries to protect Scraps from what he feels are negative influences.
Once the mascot for Astr-O’s breakfast cereal, The Captain was fired in favor of what is essentially a more youthful version of himself in the Astro-O kid. The cereal execs felt kids would relate to the character more if he was akid like them. It was a huge blow to his psyche from which he hasn’t quite recovered. He had to sell of most of his space suit to pay his bills. The group hasn’t really been helping him, and he’s gone a little crazy. The Captain wants revenge on the Cereal company, and the Astro-O kid. Most of all though, he longs for his past glory.

This is the Lone Stranger. Former Mascot for Old West Beef Jerky, The lone stranger used to light up the TV screen on his trusty steed. He had a very long run, and is comfortably retired from the mascot game. Being old and retired, he likes to frequent the group so that he has a place where people have to listen to him talk about the good old days. He's kind of an old bigot, having many views that aren't very PC with the current times. He's not well liked at the group. He actually only appears in the first episode, but plays a key role in Scraps transformation into the Cereal Bandit, as it is while attempting to rob Sugar Scraps from the Lone Stranger's grandchildren that Scraps acquires the mask and pistol that he uses as the Cereal Bandit.

 This is Hoo. Former Mascot for Secure-Tek. "Hoo's watching you!". Secure- Tek opted for a more high tech image and fired Hoo. Hoo's confident that if he can catch some criminals in the act, the press would make Secure-tek take him back for sure. He's keeping a close eye on Scarps and Rex and the gang, because he's pretty sure they're up to no good. This character also provide's us with an opportunity for some cheap Abbot and Costello "Hoo's on first?" gags.

This is Constable Cookie and the Biscuit Burglar
Former Mascots for Crunchables Chocolate Chip Cookies, these two spent years chasing each other around, Cookie trying to keep the Biscuit Burglars hands out of the Cookie Jar. Eventually they could not keep a secret any longer, they were tired of chasing each other around, they were in love! and they wanted the world to know it. Unfortunately this probably wouldn't sell cookies and Crunchables promptly let them go. They have no regrets, although they do have a discrimination law suit pending. They now go to the group in a decidedly more "tom of finland" cops and robbers ensemble. Friends of Tree frog Ron, they were the ones who were able to get Scraps into the group. Constable Cookie also knows Detective Fontaine from his days back on the force.
