— Louise
Louise Belcher is the youngest member of the Belcher family. Her off-balance sense of humor and hunger for conflict makes her somewhat of a liability in the kitchen. Like her siblings, Gene and Tina, Louise goes to Wagstaff School. She is a 4th grader.


Louise has black hair and tan skin like the rest of the family members. She wears her hair in pigtails with chartreuse yellow hair ties. She is almost never seen without wearing her trademark pink rabbit ear hat. She wears a green frock and black sock-less Mary Jane shoes.

In "Ear-Sy Rider", she wore a blue hooded jacket with the hood up after her hat was stolen. She wears the jacket again with the hood down in "Ambergris" to conceal the ambergris.

In Christmas in the Car and The Hauntening, she wears a light blue jacket, which looks similar to the jacket worn in My Fuzzy Valentine and Lobsterfest. However, the jacket in My Fuzzy Valentine and Lobsterfest has a hood, while the one in Christmas in the Car and The Hauntening does not.

Her nightwear sometimes consists of a light green shirt and 3/4 length shorts, and more often a light blue classic pajama set. She sometimes wears pink or yellow rabbit slippers.

In Burger War, she wears a headdress made of plastic spoons and forks.


Louise is a bright yet manipulative child, especially considering her place as the youngest in the family. Frequently seen giving her older siblings (and sometimes adults) advice and making quick-witted remarks, she displays many signs associated with high intelligence. These include her tendency towards being aloof and manipulative but also encompasses her cunning, logic, and problem solving skills. In addition, since intelligence is linked to a higher risk of mental health issues, she frequently behaves impulsively and rarely shows signs of guilt. She becomes extremely attached to inanimate objects (like her bunny ears and Kuchi Kopi toy) in contrast to her difficulties in showing affection towards people. A high aggression runs in the youngest Belcher child, Her love of money causes her to behave erratically at times. She can pick-locks and steals from her siblings but is always ready to help them when she needs it. Louise doesn’t show affection often, but when she does it’s usually by coming up with plans to help people when they’re in a crunch.
