Voice actor: Frank Welker

Twiggy is the Pokey Oaks' kindergarten class hamster. Every Friday, a Pokey Oak's student has to take Twiggy home and care for her. She was once turned into a monster hamster in "Gettin' Twiggy With It" because Mitch Mitchelson purposely flushed her down the toilet and she got mutated by a radioactive chemical in the sewer, similar to Peepi's case in the Invader Zim episode "Hamstergeddon", where he is turned into a monster by Zim. At the end of the episode, she tries to destroy and eat Mitch as revenge for cruelly torturing her. She also dislikes Princess Morbucks, who insulted her. She kept running really fast on her hamster wheel, causing her cage to fall off the table and break.


Twiggy is a friendly hamster, especially towards the kids in Pokey Oaks, being a hamster, she likes being treated with kindness, love, and care. So she doesn't like being insulted, abuse, or torture by anyone.

When Mitch Mitchelson looks after her, he treated her with nothing more than cruelly and was deeply frightened of him. After being flushed down the toilet and fell into a radioactive wave, Twiggy developed more a vengeful personality toward Mitch and was no longer afraid of him due to being bigger than the boy, Twiggy also developed darker side in a attempt to seek revenge on Mitch which involves eating him for treating her with such unkindness.
