Gumball is a 12 year old cat who lives with his Mum and Dad, the Wattersons, his sister Anais, and his best friend Darwin who used to be a goldfish but grew legs and became an honorary kid. Gumball’s Dad is a pink rabbit who spends most of his time watching TV and playing video games, while his Mum works long hours to feed the family.
