*Gloomy is a girl who lives in the town of Frightsylvania (a town of monsters) in a house with her friends. Often, the most strange things happen to her, which are mainly caused either by the faults of her friends or the plots of her enemies (though most commonly the latter).
Larry the Werewolf, is Gloomy's only sensible friend, who often is a key player in getting Gloomy out of trouble. He is sometimes used as Frank's straight man.
*Frank, a miniature
Frankenstein's Monster, is selfish and is often more trouble than the situation is worth. He thinks only of himself when his friends matter the most, and sometimes ends up rescuing Gloomy and friends by accident.
Mummyis another one of Gloomy's friends. He owns a bar and speaks entirely in hieroglyphics.
Carl Cthulhuis an octopoid sea monster that loves bunnies and claims that he will one day destroy all life.
Simon Von Simonis Little Gloomy's bitter ex-boyfriend seeking revenge. He controls an army of zombies.
Evey, The Rotton Witchwas formerly Little Gloomy's best friend, until she discovered she could gain greater magical power and immortality by sacrificing Gloomy to the dark gods.
*Lily a sea creature that usually goes on vacations with Gloomy but they usually get in trouble. She is shown as very vain and selfish.
*Shelly is the brain damaged result of Simon Von Simon's experiment to trap Gloomy's mind into a new, bride of Frankenstein type body. Her name is derived from the last name of "Frankenstein" author
Due to the design of the central character and association through the
Slave Labor Graphicspublishing imprint, Little Gloomy is often labeled specifically as a goth related comic. As such, it was one of the first to reach mainstream audiences with regular distribution through Disney Adventures.
