Yakkity Yak is a television program that ran on Nickelodeon from November 9 to December 12, 2003. Yakkity Yak was cancelled on December 11 with 52 episodes, due to a generally low fanbase. Although it was added to the Nicktoons Network schedule for a few years, it was removed from the rotation on March 2, 2007. The show was known for its extreme lack of reality, and featured a style of animation which broke with past Nickelodeon tradition. The show features an anthropomorphic yak named Yakkity who wants to make it to stardom by becoming a comedian. Along the way, he has adventures with his two best friends Keo (an actual anthropomorphic pineapple) and Lemony.
He has his dream of comedic fame. Yakkity has his outlet through small gigs landed by the Trilo Entertainment Agency. From kids birthday parties to ‘Yakstravaganza’s, Yakkity is keen for experience. Even when encouraged by Trilo to fill in for Fairy Yakkity, which entails him dressing up as a ‘female fairy’, Yakkity takes it in his stride as he knows part of a comedian’s repertoire is a keen sense of character and be able to make laughs from impersonation.
Yakkity Yak is voiced by Lee Tockar.
Although they have their problems as any budding teenager and his Father could have, Keo loves his Dad; although as we see in ‘Pineapple Upside Down Dead Cake’, he wishes he could be a little less bossy and see his view at times. His mother might be a human due to the fact that he is a human with a pineapple for a head.
Granny Yak is voiced by Pam Hyatt.
Lemony is voiced by Andrea Libman
A town 'Mr. Fix it', Highpants volunteers and/or runs many other smaller businesses - such as the volunteer fire brigade, Neighbourhood watch and he also moonlights as the town's dentist. While popular, he’s the towns gossip - if you want to spread a rumour in Onion Falls, go see Mr. Highpants. He's good friends with Keo's Dad and always a helping hand with advice for Yakkity and Keo.
Mr Highpants has a hi-tech home, a parrot and a monkey called Mr Littlepants. His first name is Reginald.

Yakkity and Keo are eternally curious about the smells and noises emitted from his room. The Professor is usually focused on his experiments to the exclusion of everyone else but can be a handy housemate to have if you have a scientific based problem. However, he can be quite longwinded in explanations. Crazyhair's favourite movies usually entail a tale of a misunderstood scientist according to the episode "Yak TV." He has the ability to change the color of his hair which acts as a mood ring.

Wanda is voiced by Brenda Crichlow
His shows are hugely popular particularly among the boys. A local celebrity with enigmatic fame to boot – no one has ever seen his face. Chuck is one of Yakkity's heroes and a would-be mentor if he had the chance, so it is devastating to Yakkity when he is responsible for injuring Chuck in ‘Regarding Chuck’. Chuck lives in a small house on the edge of a quarry and drives an old tow-truck.
