Mr. Gaylord Robinson is a supporting character in The Amazing World of Gumball. He is the Wattersons' grouchy next-door neighbor. He lives with his wife, Margaret, and usually gets into arguments with her. They both raised one child, Rocky.


Mr. Robinson is a puppet-like creature. His body is shaped like a slightly rounded cylinder, and regarding relative height, he only stands a few inches above Gumball. Grey-blue fuzz covers his entire body, all except his large and protruding nose, which is grayish pink. He is completely bald.

Mr. Robinson wears a fancy navy blue blazer with a short red striped tie and a white shirt underneath, plus a pair of brown pants and plaid slippers. He has large, rectangle, thick-rimmed glasses that help him see with his tiny eyes. He also has a noticeable unibrow. When he talks, his mouth opens in typical Muppet fashion.

When Mr. Robinson is yelling, he sometimes is frantically raised in the air in a fit of blind fury.


Mr. Robinson is known for his uptight and grumpy personality. He is obsessed with money, status, and arguing. He deeply despises Gumball, and can barely tolerate the rest of his family. This is because he considers them to be a tacky and cheap family, and views himself and his property as better than the Wattersons'.

He also has a very short temper and can fly into a raging stupor if he is pushed too far. Despite his rough and angry behavior, Mrs. Robinson is not intimidated by his anger, and even though they are married to each other, he and his wife share an oddly healthy relationship that revolves around arguing and yelling at each other. Although, his attitude towards her changed quite a bit in "The Poltergeist."

On the inside, however, he seems to possess an energetic and bold personality, as shown in "The Debt."
