- Farmer John- Sheep's owner until Sheep left the farm. His real name is "Fahr Mer John". His first name is Fahr because "his parents wanted him to go far in life".
- Sheep- The protagonist of the series. Despite his anthropomorphism, he cannot speak English. He only bleats.
- General Specific- The villain of the series, performing ridiculous attempts at kidnapping sheep. He works in a very clearly indicated secret headquarters. His name is an oxymoron.
- Private Public- One of Gen. Specific's minions. His name is also an oxymoron.
- The Angry Scientist- a mad scientist whom Gen. Specific hired. He gets upset when he's called a "mad scientist", preferring the name "angry scientist". He has a mock-German accent, a classic allusion to Einstein.
- Oxymoron- An ox who acts as the mascot for the fictional sponsor of the show.
