Tyrone is a moose
Tasha is a hippo
Austin is a kangaroo
Pablo is a penguin
Uniqua is a unigue creature all her own
All of this is according to the shows creators, researched through the shows website and the website for Nickelodeon Jr for which they are programed.
Uniqua is a chameleon thats why she matches her purple dotted jump suit if you look closely you can see her clothes are a bit darker and with them and the toys in her back yard that are also purple and spotted.
I don't think Uniqua is anything. I think she unique hence the name Uniqua. She's a mixture on different animals.
Ones a moose a think a hippo a bird sorry my kids watch it all the time
ill lokk for you tomorrow
Uniqua has a Giraffe skin but she has an antenna like grasshopper or a bug.
My 2 yr old use to watch this show, I use to buy everything possible dealing with the Backyardigans but now he likes Spongebob, Anyways this is what I know about them: I know there names is Uniqua, Pablo, Tyrone, Tasha and Austin, Tyrone is the moose, Pablo is a Penguin he was my Son`s favorite, Austin is a kangaroo, I heard Uniqua is a alien what else would be purple with pink spots also because she is very Unique she`s in between all kinds of animals and an alien, Tasha is a hippo. Thats the best I can do for you, Hope it helps.
