| Character Information
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.
