Swampy takes on the appearance of an anthropomorphic short green alligator that walks on two legs and he is the smallest alligator in the sewer, making him slightly shorter than his girlfriend Allie. His eyes have blue irises, and he has three teeth poking out of his mouth; two on the left side, one on the right. He has a long curvy tail with purple rounded scales running down it and his back. He also has lighter green spots on his arms and legs, a round light-green belly, and blue-colored claws on his hands and feet. In earlier versions, his teeth were yellow rather than a clean white.
Unlike other alligators, Swampy is very nice and follows a golden rule in the first game. He is shy but loving, and never shows hatred or aggression to other alligators. After finding a purple bow in the dump and gifting it to Allie, the two have been in a relationship since much to Cranky 's displeasure who used to be Allie's boyfriend. Swampy also loves his Rubber Duck.
Swampy is a very clean alligator who doesn’t want to be dirty. He takes baths and showers regularly, in doing so only wants to bath in plain water. He frequently uses cutlery for eating. He likes to avoid mud and rain. Despite his dislike for mess, it doesn't stop him finding items in the Sewer and treasuring them. On one occasion, on of the alligators ate some of his collection putting him into stress.
In the second game, Swampy has a much younger appearance and personality. Swampy's actions show he is much more like a child, who loves to have fun. Swampy is a very calm, happy and bubbly alligator. He may be shy but he is loving, and never shows hatred or aggression to other alligators.
In Where's My Water?: Swampy's Underground Adventures, he looks out for all the alligators. Swampy hangs out with his girlfriend Allie and sometimes Cranky the most. Swampy eventually wears his swimming gears on to jump into the water with Cranky and the other alligators in the episode Out to Dry.
Swampy is arguably one of the most curious alligators in the Sewer, often getting himself into trouble and he loves his adventure companion, Ducky. Swampy and Cranky are still enemies, they both take the lead at times and both show care for each other.
From Disney's Where's My Water? Website
- "A lovable outcast amongst the other alligators living in the sewers. He enjoys showering which is something the other alligators just don't understand.
- Unbeknownst to him the other alligators routinely tamper with his plumbing to stop his showers. The player's goal is to get water to Swampy's broken showers so he can indulge in his favorite pastime."
- "Meet Swampy": Cranky chews Swampy's pipes and eventually destroys the waterway leading to Swampy's bathroom.
- "Troubled Waters": Cranky and the other alligators laugh at Swampy for not swimming in the toxic sludge.
- "Under Pressure": Cranky eats lunch with the other alligators and Swampy while Allie watches.
- "Sink or Swim": Swampy finds a bow for Allie and wants to give it to her (he eventually does and Allie becomes his girlfriend).
Though living in a sewer, Swampy is obsessed with cleanliness and this drives the simple story of the game. He is incredibly sweet and innocent, which makes him an easy target for Cranky and his gang, who despise Swampy for his human-like qualities.
Swampy is the main character of the app and lives amongst the other alligators beneath the city streets in a sewer. Here, Swampy is in outcast with no real friends. He keeps happy by doing what he loves best, taking baths. He has a crush on the only female gator in the clan Allie. Swampy often strives to impress Allie but because of her boyfriend Cranky, who is also the leader of the clan, Swampy rarely prevails. He is often teased by the other gators because of his nature which is strikingly similar to that of a normal human.
- Swampy is voiced by Justin T. Bowler
- Just like all the Alligators in the sewer, Swampy has four fingers and two toes. But real gators have 5 toes on the front legs while the back legs have only 4 toes.
