Idaho is a supporting character in The Amazing World of Gumball. He is a little potato from the countryside who follows beliefs and manners similar to the mannerisms of the Amish.


Idaho is an anthropomorphic potato, with a face, arms, and legs, all drawn in what appears to be black marker. He is one of the smallest characters in the show: only the Virus, the Viruses, the Bacteria, and his sister are smaller than him, and only his parents and uncle are the same size as him. In Season 2, his face gets smaller, and he becomes slightly darker.


Idaho, having been born and raised in the countryside, follows beliefs and mannerisms similar to the Amish, and speaks with a Southern twang. He also does not seem to be very bright.

  • Idaho's name is based on the state of Idaho, which is sometimes called "The Potato State."
  • Idaho is the smallest supporting character.
  • In "The Sock," when Darwin tells Tobias that Idaho did not invite him to his party, Idaho's accent is less of a countryside one and instead, turns into a North American accent.
  • In the early concept poster, Idaho had a lighter color.
  • On the DVD case, he is shown with six teeth, but he actually only has three.

  • Despite singing off-key in "The Bumpkin," in "The Scam" he is shown to be an exceptional singer.
  • His family bears an appearance to that of the Amish, which could mean that he is too.
