One thing that makes the Sugar Creek Gang so special and so entertaining is the unique combination of characters. Each of the kids that make up the gang is special and different in their own ways, making these films humorous and heartwarming.
Bill Collins is the narrator of the book series, and is considered the main character. His father is a farmer, and he has a little sister named Charlotte Ann. His best friend is Poetry, and they have many adventures together. He is a devout Christian and believes in following Christ with his whole life.
Leslie Thompson, nicknamed Poetry, is often called the “barrel shaped member of the gang”, because he is very chubby. He often boasts about his amazing detective skills and is proud of how good he is at solving mysteries. He is nicknamed poetry because he has many poems memorized and can recite one at any given moment.
Roy Gilbert, nicknamed Dragonfly, is the skinniest member of the gang and is known for being allergic to most everything. He usually sees things that are not there and is very observant. He is nicknamed Dragonfly because of his large eyes and the way he watches everyone. His mother is very superstitious, which has made him the same way.
Jim Foote, nicknamed Little Jim, is the youngest member of the Sugar Creek Gang. He carries a walking stick that he made himself and carved to look like a candy cane. He believes in following God and is a good Christian boy. He is a very skilled piano player.
Dan Browne, nicknamed Circus, has a large family that includes five sisters. He is named Circus because of his amazing athletic abilities and is often found climbing a tree or hopping a fence. His dad used to drink heavily, and was not a Christian. However, early on in the series, his dad became a Christian and stopped drinking.
Big Jim is the leader of the gang, and is several years older than all the other kids. He grew up in another town, where he was an active member of the Boy Scouts. He uses his scout skills to lead the gang and help them accomplish things.
Tom Till is the newest member of the gang. He and Bill look a lot alike and often get mistaken for each other. Before joining the Sugar Creek Gang, he was a part of a very mean gang with his brother, Bob. His father is a very cruel and harsh man, which has had a bad influence on Bob.
Bob Till is not part of the Sugar Creek Gang, but is known for making trouble. He often gets in their way and tries to prevent them from doing good and solving mysteries. He is not a Christian and does not understand how to be kind to other people. His mother is a very sweet woman, which has molded Tom to be the way that he is.
