Cricket Green is the main protagonist of Big City Greens.

Appearance

Physical Features

He appears short and thin and mostly has a slightly large head, has bright yellow skin, a buck tooth, and a brown bowl cut hairstyle with both sides bare. In Cricketsitter, he has a metal plate on the back of his head, which it can be seen through x-ray.

Attire

He wears a pair of turquoise blue overalls with a light gray shirt underneath it. He's mostly seen barefoot, because he hates wearing shoes.

Personality

Cricket is a mischievous and optimistic country boy who moves to the big city with his family. Cricket’s curiosity and enthusiasm lead his wildly out of place family on epic journeys and into the hearts of his new neighbors.

He usually determines himself if he’s willing to handle a challenge that comes in the way, especially in Cricket Versus; he was willing to determine himself to claim the Green family name plus being placed on a Green family quilt by imposing a challenge to catch and wrestle a wild ferocious animal, after he figured that there was no one but Gramma, as the ferocious one as he attempted to wrestle Gramma down before sunset.

He has an aversion for bears, which he’ll usually set up bear traps while describing them as horrific uncivilized creatures, until in Bear Trapped, he, Tilly, and Remy stumble upon a lost stray bear, named Daisy, that somehow got lost and entered the city. Cricket at first was harsh before the bear was taken away after he accidentally called the animal control to capture Daisy, which he realizes that he was wrong but later he and the others were able to set her free in the sewer.

He also has an aversion for responsibility, until in Critterball Crisis, he got a job working at Big Coffee with Gloria and slowly started accepting responsibility.

Relationship

Bill Green

As being the only youngest son that Bill has, Bill mostly has to deal with his son’s mischief that can get him in a lot of trouble; in Space Chicken, after hearing from his dad about how to make a good impression, as when Cricket decides to launch a chicken in space in order to seek an impression, which it resulted in a lot disruption as the chicken flew on a guy’s food which led Gloria to confront Bill that Cricket's idea of launching a chicken was a bad idea as it caused a lot of mess, causing him to send Cricket to his room. Regardless of the troublemaking, he still cares about his son and as much as the rest of the family, even at times when Cricket becomes a bit of a loose cannon.

Alice Green

She may be a cranky person, but Cricket mentions that she's not bad, if he and/or someone gets caught. In Cricket Versus, she tends to probe Cricket into being determined to tame a wild beast that might toughen his character in order to prove that he deserves to have the Green family name, only for Cricket to discover that the true beast (Gramma) was right in front of him the whole time.

Tilly Green

As her being his one and only older sister, she seems to be not bothered by anything that Cricket has in store, which she’ll tag along whenever Cricket comes upon something interesting. Plus, she acts like she's younger and Cricket acts like he's older.

Remy Remington

As a best friend to Cricket and Tilly, Remy is a bit loyal and interested in almost all of the ideas that Cricket has, like launching a chicken in the sky (Space Chicken). In Remy Rescue, he tried to encourage Remy to speak up when his parents don’t allow him the freedom to make the decisions that he wants, even means of him wanting to stay close friends to Cricket and Tilly.

Gloria

At first, both exactly didn’t know each other, but rarely got along since Gloria viewed him as a nuisance, because whenever he did something that might interfere with her workplace or a customer, she’d have to deal with the mess that Cricket had caused. For example, his attempts to launch a chicken into space were met with her frustration, as she demanded he'd stop ("Space Chicken"), or when he disturbed a customer by attacking him in an attempt to pass the Green Family Rite of Passage ("Cricket Versus"). Their relationship drastically changed though in "Critterball Crisis", when Cricket went too far and caused a ton of damage to the café in an attempt to get his titular Critterballs back, an act that almost got Gloria fired until he decided to step in to take the blame and fix the mess so that she won't be fired, 'cause he realized that having this job so that she can go to Paris is something very important to her. He’s now working with Gloria until any further notice.

In "Parade Day", Cricket wants to see the titular Parade Day in person for the first time, but Gloria doesn't let him, stating that it's the busiest day of the year in the café. Cricket finds a loophole in the form of a mandatory 15 minute break, and abandons her to the monstrous customers. When he comes back on time, he realizes that he wasn't a good co-worker. Gloria encourages him, telling him he'll grow into responsibility, and having learned his lesson, Cricket takes over from her so that she can see the parade, an act that Gloria is thankful for.

In "Paint Misbehavin", Cricket learns that he and Gloria can make money by combining their differing art styles (Doodles and Abstract). This leads to Cricket getting an opportunity to sell the art in a fancy art exhibit, and he abandons Gloria for the spotlight. In the exhibit, Cricket fails to sell a single painting, and realizes that it only worked when he and Gloria worked together. The two reconcile, and paint as a team. This gets them kicked out, but the two still had fun, and share a warm moment.

In "Coffee Crisis", Cricket is on his last day of debt, and he and Gloria are happy to be parting, but Cricket can only pay off his debt if the two get the last bag of coffee beans in town. While they fight Chip Whistler for the bag, Cricket learns many things about Gloria, mainly that she is from the subarbs, and just wants to belong in somewhere like Big City or Paris. While they escape Chip, the two finally manage to work together, and come to appreciate each others company, so much so that the two fake a mess in the café so that Cricket can keep working for Gloria. As before, he's working there until further notice.

While the two still tend to butt heads and disagree on many things, having worked together for a while, and learned a bit about themselves and each other, Cricket and Gloria have developed a complicated love-hate relationship, a la a Big Sister-Little Brother dynamic. At times, Cricket seems to want to impress Gloria, or make her like him (Like when he gave her Parade Day beads and liked the idea of her saying that he's so cool when he comes back in time in "Parade Day"). Due to all this, Cricket is slowly learning about responsibility, selflessness and hard work, and is even warming up to Gloria, and vice-versa.
