Joey about to jump.

Joey the Kangaroo is a young kangaroo and the son of Janet and Elvis.

Physical Appearance

Joey is a red kangaroo, much like his mother and father.


In his first appearance, Joey was unable to jump by himself. Ribbit was able to give him a pair of boots, which helped him jump when he was small. Joey soon began to jump after trying out the boots. In later episodes, Joey is usually kind of curious, but usually a bit of naughty. His mother Janet is a bit protective of him.
