The series focuses on Ben Bones, an undead skeleton.

- Benjamin Bones (voiced by Landon Norris) - The kind problem-solving protagonist of the show and hero of Freaktown. Ben is an undead skeleton with a soul. He often foils Princess Boo Boo and Lord Cuddles' plans to "sugar frost" Freaktown.
- Lenny (voiced by Cory Doran) - Ben's best friend. Lenny is a mutant mantis, who is sometimes shy. But, he's also very endearing. He has the ability to shoot sticky webs.
- Priscilla (voiced by Stephanie Lynn Robinson) - Ben and Lenny's best friend. Priscilla is a potion princess and the kind of friend who sees everything, due to the fact that she can take out her eyeballs. She is good at concocting magic potions.
- Princess Boo Boo the Bouncy (voiced by Julie Lemieux) - One of the main antagonists. She is the ruler of Sweetlandia. She is a spoiled brat who plans to turn Freaktown into a kind and cuddly paradise.
- Lord Cuddles the Fluffy (voiced by Matt Baram) - Another main antagonist. He is Princess Boo Boo's right-hand bear. He is the one who normally plans the scheme to ruin Freaktown. Don't let his cuteness and physical size fool you, he is one guy not to be messed with.
- Taylor the Warnicorn

- Sven (voiced by Ben Andrews) - is Ben's brother who is sometime evil when he haves red eyes. He's upset when people don't be together with him.
