Carlos Alazraqui, Tom Kenny, and Mr. Lawrence, who used to work for Joe on Rocko's Modern Life, also provide lead voices in this show.

Camp Lazlo chronicles life in a place called Camp Kidney that's set in the Pimpleback Mountains next to Leakey Lake, with rustic cabins named after all of the famous beans (Soy, Garbanzo, Jumping and Cocoa among them). It centers on an energetic Brazilian monkey named Lazlo who happens to be a Bean Scout and hangs with his two best pals: a wise and neurotic Indian elephant named Raj and Clam, your basic highly intelligent albino pygmy rhino. They're surrounded by Scoutmaster Algonquin C. Lumpus, a thin-skinned moose, and a Squirrel Scout camp full of girls across the lake. The adventures of once an ordered camp to a camp full of wacky events.
Lazlo is the main character of the show and he has a tough time with structure, rules and routines of the camp. Voiced by: Carlos Alazraqui.
Raj is a giant elephant who hates a mess, cowers from snakes, bugs, often brings Lazlo back down to Earth, and hates being alone which is why he often follows his friends -- and getting in trouble with them. Voiced by: Jeff Glenn Bennett.
Clam is the third member of the group in the Jelly Cabin trio. Although he is often described as "four cents short of a nickel." he is acutally very intelligent, but never applies himself. Voiced by: Carlos Alazraqui.
Lumpus, the frustrated and scoutmaster moose, is always trying to bring down the fun and he is very self-centered. He has a major crush on Jane Doe, the scoutmisstress of Acorn Flats. Voiced by: Tom Kenny.
Slinkman is Lumpus' sidekick who has all the personality of a tree stump and no back bone. He is an obediant person slug but doesn't stand up for himself. Voiced by: Tom Kenny.
Edward the Platypus is Lazlo's self-proclaimed enemy who always tries to ruin everyone's day and if someone is not on his side holds a strong grudge. Voiced by: Doug Lawrence.
The Dung Beetles, or, Chip and Skip, are Edward's two smelly, and clueless Dung Beetle "side-kicks". Voiced by: Steve Little.
Patsy Smiles is a chirpy mongoose that has a major crush on Lazlo. Even though she can be a bit annoying at times, she makes attempts to get to him. Other than that characteristic, she actually knows various fighting moves and hates a lot of girly stuff like dresses. Voiced by: Jodi Bensons.
Nina Neckerly, one of Patsy's best friends, she's very much the smart one of her friends. More on the bookish side and maybe a nice Squirrel Scout among everyone. Voiced by: Jill Talley.
Gretchen is an ever-hungry alligator that wants to eat anything, especially happy monkeys. She's the toughest one of the 3 main Squirrel Scouts and is always in a grouchy mood. Therefore, she is best to be avoided. Voiced by: Jill Talley.
The Scoutsmistress of the Squirrel Scouts, Jane Doe is a perky deer that has to deal with the girls everyday. She is unaware of Lumpus' crush for her. Voiced by: Jodi Benson.
