People like it and people hate it, just like how the world operates.
Mickey the Dick (played by Max Gilardi) is the writer, director and star of VGV's Wacky Game Jokez, 4 Kidz. He formerly lived as a small time crook on the streets of New York City as he robbed liqour stores, sold crack, stole car stereos, and mugged people. This was his normal life until he was abducted by the evil corporation, VGV. Since the kidnapping, Mickey has been kept in the building against his will to create WGJ4K for reasons not explained.
Eric (played by Max Gilardi) is a part of the film crew that works with Mickey on 'WGJ4K'. Unlike Mickey's existence at VGV, Eric seems to be willing to create videos. His love for video games is evident as he believes them to be the greatest gift to mankind and the sole reason the universe was created. He is overweight and his face is covered with acne. He also claims to be a robot and has antennae protruding from his head.
June (played by Max Gilardi) is a large breasted member of the film crew that works with Mickey on WGJ4K. Like Eric, June seems to be willing to create videos and believes that video games are God's greatest gift to mankind. Throughout the series, June has been portrayed as an unintelligent, oblivious, carefree girl gamer enthusiast making clear to everyone that even though she is a girl, she is capable of beating anyone at video games even when no one has questioned that ability.
The Boss (played by Max Gilardi) is the "Editor of Chief" of VGV. He appears to have the same persona as a cliché police chief with his no nonsense attitude often yelling at Mickey and his reckless behavior. The Boss (along with anyone else) is the target of Mickey's abuse, such as being spat on and having his lamps and other VGV equipment broken. He is your normal average Italian bastard as some people might think. Nonetheless, the Boss still encourages Mickey to do his job, offering him the best equipment, a "top-notch" film crew, and his respect. Of course, he is mocked. He and Mickey have "decided" that Mickey fulfill a quota of film work a day. It has been shown he is willing to use agressive force, as seen when Mickey tried to quit and the Boss pulled a gun at him. However, he is reluctant as he failed to shoot Mickey when inclined. He is the first character to guess to Mickey's reason for being a dick, and has only appeared in three episodes thus far: "Mickey's Predicament", "The Tough Guy Front", and "Top 10 Hottest Game Chicks". It has been confirmed by Max Gilardi that the Boss is not Mickey's father.
Robert Burgless is an unseen "fan" of Wacky Game Jokez, 4 Kidz. In episode seven ("Robert Burgless"), he wrote a letter to VGV saying the show isn't really wacky and it's mostly Mickey being mean to June and Eric. So the crew makes respond to his letter and makes the show more wacky. Robert Burgless is extremely incompetent in his typing as shown in his letter (refers Mickey as "Mikey", June as "Jane", and spelling typos as calling WGJ4K "Wacky Game Jokes For Kids" [though Mickey forgets the z as well], and spelling appropriate wrong). Because of this, Mickey compares his fans and crew to Robert whenever he thinks they are incompetent.
Catzilla is a demonic, green cat that isn't seen until the VGV logo. Its purpose is to mainly jumpscare the audience with a suprise appearance and a ear piercing screech. Not much is known about this creature, and it may technically not be a character. In "Mickey's Rebuttal", Mickey and the Cat apparantly switched places at one point. The cat appeared in the title card, and Mickey appeared in the VGV logo using an unconvincing "SCRAAAAAAAA". It is unknown how these events transpired.

The opening theme has lyrics by Billy Blabara and music by Charlotte Hiy.
Mickey is a small time crook in the slums of NYC
He was stolen off the streets by an evil corporation called VGV
He is forced to write, direct, and star in a video game comedy
Broadcast on the net, doo do doo
With his film crew, doo do doo
While simultaneously making unfunny films that he hates ('cuz they're about video games)
Mickey also plans his devious escapes
It's Wacky Game Jokes, 4 Kidz!
