Judah the Lion
Judah is the main, heroic character of the Big Heads; the face of the group. Many of our shows are specifically about the travels and adventures Judah has. Judah serves as a role model for children. He is strong, courageous, and stands up for truth and righteousness.
Bacca the Purple Wookie
Bacca is a wookie from Star Wars planet of Kashyyk. However, he is not like other wookies for he is purple. He has been mistaken for a monster from Sesame Street. He growls and howls, but doesn't talk much. He does have a universal translating machine which he has been known to use on occasion. Don't let his size scare you. He is well like by children and is known for his hugs.
Moxy the Leopard
Moxy is our spunky leopard. Being a much smaller cat than others doesn't hold her back. Moxy is full of fight and is jealous of attention. Like a house cat, she seems to put the idea of having nine lives to the test. Her motto is "Living life on the wild side." Whether for games or music, Moxy is fun to be around.
Kokomo the Parrot
While Kokomo is a parrot, he believes himself to be a chicken-hawk. Friendly and funny, Kokomo's favorite activity is teaching a crowd to do the chicken dance. Kokomo's biggest flaw is his selfishness. Like a preschooler, he has a tendency to want all things and make them his. His favorite catch phrase is "MINE!" Fortunately, Kokomo is always working on this aspect of character and his ability to give and share.
Jayne the Bulldog
Jayne the Bulldog is a true pioneer and wild west dog. Truly reminding you of the rugged cowboys. He is tough, stubborn, and extremely prideful. He never wants help and he always "knows-it-all." Jayne truly believes the song "Hero of Canton" was written about and for him. Don't let that hard rugged persona fool you. On the inside, Jayne is a big softy.
Willie the Wabbit
Willy is rascally rabbit (Or should we say, "wascally wabbit"). He loves surprises and likes to play tricks on kids. Once, he even threw "Trix" cereal on a crowd. Willy loves playing the Easter Bunny as he sees it as impersonating a famous person. His personal heroes include Bugs Bunny and Roger Rabbit. So now, you can sit back and imagine what he might do at a party with party favors, food and hyper children.
Ellie Mae the Fox
Ellie Mae is the typical Southern bell-type. She has a drama queen personality and loves popularity. Being a fox, she relies on her cleverness to get in and out of trouble. Needless to say, Ellie Mae is used to teach about peers, relationships, and the more important things of life.
Captain Pat O'Reilly
the Irish Pirate
Capt. Pat is a long time friend to Judah the Lion. He tries to sound piraty, but his Irish accent doesn't always cooperate. Like all pirates, Capt. Pat has a crazy past life. However, his tale of restoration is inspiring as he reminds people about what is truly a great treasure. Capt. Pat can be seen with the Big Heads as well as with his own pirate crew.
Pester the Serpent
Pester is our well beloved "villian." His name represent his character. He can be a bully and is always looking to cause trouble. Despite his fierce nature, Pester seems to be loved by children the same way Swiper the Fox is on Dora the Explorer. Wierd, we know. Pester helps with many a show, and has been known to hug and do high-five at parades. Boys love watching Pester face off with Judah the Lion.
Maxx the Dog
Maxx is a our "not-so-intelligent" dog. Sweet and lovable...not so bright. He loves playing games with kids. His favorite is the howl game. It seems that Maxx never learned to bark well and children are always helping him with his bark. Because of his loyalty and willingness to do anything, Maxx has appeared in many "specials" including being an "reindeer" for Christmas and a "scurvy dog" for Capt. Pat's pirate crew.
Bucky the Party Animal
What is that?!? What are you suppose to be?!? A monster? An alien? These are just some of the responses Bucky gets from people. Yes, Bucky is strange. Three fingers and two toes. Rainbow colored and yes...buck teeth. He may be a little slow and not too smart, but Bucky likes having fun. To him, life is a circus and he is the clown. Bucky lives for the moment. His addiction to self-gratification may be funny, but in the end, he always seems to discover the satisfaction of caring for others first.
Ollie the Snowman
Look, it's Olaf! No it isn't! This is Ollie the Snowman. He's a distant cousin to that famous, frozen, snowman, Olaf. They just look very similar. There are some differences. Ollie is a huge fan of Frosty the Snowman, and is often seen wearing boots and a black hat. He is mostly seen around the holidays with many Christmas programs. However, if ever called upon, not even the summer heat can keep him away.
Babalu the Baby Big Head
This Big Head has the eyes, but is a little on the small side. Babalu is what we call a "baby big head." She always needs a trained "handler" with her because she is a handful. Curious about everything and like a baby...everything goes in the mouth. She is not seen out much, but likes parades and public events where she can meet lots of people.
The 3 KINGS
Melchior, Balthazar, and Gaspar are our newest Big Heads and ready for the Christmas season.
They bring their testimony of their famous journey of following a star, they show the gifts they brought for a special king, and they tell of discovering the true meaning of Christmas.
Santa Claus and his Elves
Not everyone in a city is Santa friendly. There's a lot of reasons for that: cultural, religious, etc. However, this Santa is a Big Head! Santa, like all our characters, stays in that realm of fun imagination and helps us share the more true meaning of Christmas without getting into debates. The Big Heads do regular Christmas shoes and this Santa with his elfish helpers also set up for pictures throughout the Christmas season.
The Grinch and an occasional Who
What would the holidays be without the Grinch? Our Grinch is a new addition, first being seen by 3200 kids in our Juarez Christmas Outreaches in 2016.
He was so popular, that we decided to bring him on as a regular part of the Big Heads. His heart may be 3 sizes larger, but he can still be a little mischievous.
The Big Heads also do some "other" not so "Big Heady" type of events. Every Halloween, the Big Head team does a themed style event.
In 2015, the event was "Wilma Wonka and Chocolate Oompa Loompa Cave" In 2014, the Big Heads were used for Halloween event, "Ghostbusters" In 2013, the team did a Gypsy Scavenger Hunt, in 2012, "The Mine Shaft" and in 2011 was the "Labyrinth." 2016 featured a mash up of Alice in Wonderland's Mad Hatter meets Slimer and the Ghostbusters. Future events include a Star Wars Adventure Academy and a Trip to Oz. Capt. Pat's pirate crew have also participated in various event around town. If you've got an idea, we'd love to hear from you!
