Rooney Doodle is a major character in the Doodlebops. He is a Doodlebop along with Deedee Doodle and Moe Doodle. He is able to invent and play the guitar. He first appeared in Doodlebop Photo Op and is portrayed by Chad McNamara.
Rooney is a blue-skinned boy with blue hair. He wears a beret on his head that has a music note on it. He wears a light blue shirt with red swirls on it under a pair of dark blue overalls. His overalls has a guitar on it that is going diagonal, thus making one of the straps the top of a guitar, the other strap's button being a guitar pick. He wears a pair of red slip-on shoes.
Changes to appearance
Rooney debuted in the first season wearing a blue hood with fake ears attached to it, making him more cartoon-like. He has heavier makeup compared to the later seasons.
Rooney has lighter makeup than season 1, and his overalls now lack a detail compared to his appearance in season 1. Starting with this season, when he gets on Bob's bus, he wears a blue jacket. When he's performing on stage, he now wears a very shiny pair of overalls with a silver guitar, his undershirt's red swirls have glitter on them, and his beret is shiny (despite not seeing it when he looks at the audience/crowd).
Rooney has even lighter makeup than the previous seasons. His lips are barely visible and his beret is invisible when he looks at the audience (it's because of his hair; it can only be seen when he is looking down). A small detail on his overalls changed color. When he performs on stage this season, his outfit has less glitter.
Doodlebops Rockin' Road Show
Rooney appears in the Doodlebops spinoff Doodlebops Rockin' Road Show. His outfit has less details, and he now has four fingers as opposed to the five he had on The Doodlebops.
Rooney loves to invent things! He is full of curiosity and loves to tinker with things and figure out how they work.
