School of Roars is a British children's TV series created by Alan Robinson. The show is about five monsters who go to a school for preschool monsters at night called the School of Roars to learn lessons whilst having fun with various activities. It was recommissioned for a second series.


The show focuses on five little monsters named Wufflebump, Meepa, Icklewoo, Yummble, and Wingston through their nights of attending the School of Roars, where they're taught about how to deal with daily life problems by five big monsters named Miss Grizzlesniff, Mr. Marrow, Mrs. Twirlyhorn, Miss Sneezle, and Mr. Snapper.



  • Wufflebump (voiced by Che Grant) is a five-year-old purple "rhino" monster who lives in a volcano. He's the leader of the young monsters. He can be clumsy, as he often trips over his own tail. His Italian name is "Burlagiu".
  • Icklewoo (voiced by Rosie Cooper-Kelly) is a three-year-old yellow monster who lives in a flower windmill. She doesn't roar as loud as the others do, as she's shy. Her Italian name is "Minilu".
  • Yummble (voiced by Max Pattison) is a five-year-old orange monster who lives in a giant mushroom and loves to eat. He's the best friend of Wufflebump. Because of his appetite, he can have a hard keeping any kind of food where it is by gobbling it up and breaking the adults' rules of not eating them at the wrong times. He has tons of favourite foods. His Italian name is "Iammi".
  • Meepa (voiced by Ellie Gee) is a four-year-old green alien monster who lives in a tree flat and has four hands. She likes to say her name twice ("Meepa! "Meepa!"), as she can never stop talking. She has a love for monster animals. She has the most flexible body out of anyone in the School of Roars. Her Italian name is "Mipa".
  • Wingston (voiced by Ben Guiver) is a four-year-old blue "bat" monster who lives in a castle and is the smartest. He's depicted as the fastest monster in the school thanks to his wings, size, and energy. His Italian name is "Wingy".
  • Miss Grizzlesniff (voiced by Kathy Burke) is a red tyrannosaurus rex-like monster and the teacher of the School of Roars. Her catchphrase is "Oh my claws!". She's one quirky teacher.


  • Miss Sneezle (voiced by Jessica Robinson) is the school nurse.
  • Miss Twirlyhorn (voiced by Sarah Lancashire) is the headmonstress of the School of Roars.
  • Mr Marrow (voiced by Andrew Scott) is the chef who works in the café at the School of Roars.
  • Mr Snapper (voiced by Andrew Scott) is a photographer that looks like a crocodile. He does not work at the School of Roars, but he visits when it is in need of a camera.
  • Mr Bogglelots (voiced by Andrew Scott) is the school optician.
  • Mrs Wufflebump (voiced by Jessica Robinson) is Wufflebump's mother
  • Mr Wufflebump (voiced by Alan Robinson) is Wufflebump's father
  • Growlbert (vocal effects provided by Alan Robinson) is Wufflebump and his parents’ pet monster dog
  • Mr Yummble (voiced by Andrew Scott) is Yummble's father
  • Mrs Yummble is Yummble's mother
  • Yummble's Little Brother (his real name is Yumlin)
