Tasha and her best friend, Uniqua.

Tasha is a yellow hippopotamus. She lives on the left side of the backyard behind a fence, and enjoys playing with her friends Uniqua, Pablo, Tyrone, and Austin. Tasha is best friends with Uniqua, and they frequently play together when roleplaying on their adventures.

Tasha is rational, headstrong, and a little bossy at certain points. On a few occasions, she may have a disagreement with a friend over something small (as shown in The Yeti or The Swamp Creature), but Tasha, with the help of her imagination and friends, can always end the quarrels almost instantly.

Depending on what character she is playing, Tasha can come across as being very bossy, while at other times, she may play a friendly worker, or even a 'damsel in distress', as shown in episodes like International Super Spy, Blazing Paddles and Break Out!.

Tasha was voiced by Naelee Rae McCann in the first and second season and voiced by Gianna Bruzzesse in the third and fourth season. Her singing voice was provided by Kristin Klabunde in season one, two, and the first five episodes of season three, and Gabriella Malek during the rest of season three, as well as all of season four.


Tasha is
Run Tasha!

Tasha Jumping

extremely confident and likes to be in charge most of the time. She is usually determined to get her way no matter what, however, she is never downright mean to her friends. Tasha usually is very opinionated and likes to make people do what she says and can come off just a bit bossy as a result. She is hard to scare, as pointed out in the episode It's Great To Be A Ghost!. At other times, she can very relaxed, carefree, and happy, as shown in the episode A Giant Problem.

Tasha is also Uniqua's much admired and always eagerly-awaited play date. She looks sweet as pie but underneath her extra girly exterior beats the heart of a CEO - tough-as-nails, take-no-prisoners, my-way-or-the-highway kind of gal. The others have learned to respect her bossiness, and normally let her take control.

Tasha is rational, skeptical, and highly motivated to get her own way, but it's always special for Uniqua when
Tasha's there, because she is someone who can also be giggly, silly, and full of fun. Her interests include tea parties and talking fancy.

In season one, her bossy personality was brought out in most episodes she appeared in (exceptions include The Snow Fort, Cave Party, Race Around the World, and Eureka!). But in season two, her bossy trait decreased somewhat, and she was shown in many episodes as being sweet and helpful, as shown in episodes like Scared Of You, in which Tasha threw a surprise birthday party for Austin, and Special Delivery, in which Tasha played a member of a motorcycle gang devoted to helping others.

By the third season, her bossy trait decreased significantly, but was brought up in a few season three episodes, though to a lesser extent. By the fourth season, her bossy trait disappeared almost completely.


Tasha is a yellow skinned hippo with a red-pink tongue, two slightly sunken nostrils above her mouth, dark yellow noticeable eyelashes and very thin eyebrows. She wears an orange dress with eight light-orange flowers printed on it in random spots, along with red Mary-Janes shoes. Though often color or costume will change depending on her character she plays. Also, she sometimes will wear wigs for said roles.


Tasha has appeared in many episodes of The Backyardigans. Her first appearance was in Knights Are Brave And Strong, the first episode of The Backyardigans. To more, go to List of Tasha's Appearances.
