Augustus "Gusto" Gummi is a character from the animated series Adventures of the Gummi Bears.
Role in the series
One day, he set sail for a deserted island, and although Gusto had only intended to paint the beach, his stay extended to twelve years when oceanic activity destroyed the beach and trapped Gusto on the island. During this time he befriended an island native named Artie Deco, a wise talking toucan.
He makes his debut in the season 2 finale "My Gummi Lies Over the Ocean", when Tummi and Gruffi are shipwrecked on Gusto's islandd. They encounter him just as a volcano is due to erupt and cause the entire island to sink into the sea. The three bears successfully work together, and bring Gusto home with them to Gummi Glen.
Gusto's personality is mercurial, in sharp contrast to Gruffi's desire to be steady and "do things the Gummi way". Gruffi tends to argue with Gusto for his outside-the-box thinking, and how much of an influence he is on Cubbi and Sunni, although there are times when Gusto's uniqueness saves the day, such as figuring out how to escape the island.
In "Day of the Beevilweevils", the Gummiberry crops are destroyed by the titular insects. Gusto attempts to replace them by setting out for a place called South Gumton, which was a place unknown to the Gummi Glen Gummies, deep inside Fangwood Forest. Gusto explains that growing up in his warren, they knew of South Gumton to be a farming community. What they didn't know, is that the Great Gummies' former allies from the forest, the Tree Folk, have grown bitter towards Gummies over the centuries.
