Pablo is a blue anthropomorphic penguin and the deuteragonist of The Backyardigans.
Pablo is a frenetic penguin who is more tightly wound than his friends. He thinks, speaks, acts and reacts quickly. He may not be the most agile or graceful of the Backyardigans, but he is enthusiastic and determined.
Pablo undergoes a "panic attack" in nearly every episode of the first season. His tendency to worry continues to be brought up throughout the show, but he does not panic as frequently in later seasons.
Pablo's head, arms, back and toes are dark blue. His chest and legs are a pale yellow. His arms end in mitten-like flippers. He wears a blue bowtie and a blue-and-yellow beanie hat with a red propeller. He has a yellow beak and a pink tongue. Pablo is the only major character with toes.

His first appearance in an aired episode was in "Pirate Treasure". His last appearance in an episode of The Backyardigans was in "The Tale of the Not-So-Nice Dragon".
