Huggy Face (referred to as CHF or Huggy for short by WordGirl, and sometimes mistakenly as Huggyface by fans who blend his names into one word), otherwise known as Bob (perhaps Bob Botsford if he has been adopted into the family like Becky), is WordGirl's monkey sidekick. He was a Lexicon Air Force Pilot (who attained the rank of captain, and is referred to as Captain Huggy Face due to this), before he crashed on earth with the infant WordGirl on-board.
Unlike WordGirl, Captain Huggyface appears to have no super powers, and often has to take the bus home when WordGirl forgets that he can't fly and doesn't carry him. When not in costume, he is the Botsford's family pet - under the name of Bob. People tend to mistake him for other other types of animals. He has been called a hedgehog, (flying) rabbit, dog, koala, rat, aardvark (in tights), ferret, otter, llama, a hairy kid, and plenty of others. He loves to eat almost anything, even the dreaded Beans à la Botsford, although he hates the repulsive Chicken Liver Fricassee and beef bouillon the Butcher once conjured. He can't speak, but he is good at emoting, and only Becky/WordGirl can understand him perfectly.
According to the official WordGirl website:
- Captain Huggy Face is WordGirl's greatest ally! This brilliant monkey is also from Planet Lexicon (he was piloting WordGirl's spaceship when it crashed). Unlike WordGirl, Captain Huggy Face has no superpowers and often has to take the bus home when WordGirl forgets he can't fly. When he's not in costume, he is the Botsford family pet--but most people mistake him for a dog.
In the first appearance of Becky and Huggy, she uses the word "cumbersome" to describe how Huggy found Violet, as he was struggling to carry her. She explicitly stated that he did not have super-strength like she did (it took a meteor for her to find it cumbersome).
The episode "Chuck's Brother" reveals that Captain Huggyface has an older brother back on Lexicon whose achievements he envies.
In the episode "Where's Huggy?", it is revealed that Captain Huggyface's favorite food is hot dogs.
In the episode"Yes Monkey" Huggy wears a Mr. Big Assistant Suit.
On the game show May I Have a Word?, Captain Huggyface presents the prizes - which usually get used, destroyed, or eaten by the end of the show. At the end of the show, he emotes an expression that is asked of him, and then he does his victory dance.
It is mentioned in The Rise of Miss Power that Captain Huggyface knows how to sew.
