Butter Otter is the youngest of the Otter kids, at two years of age, as evidenced by her diaper. Though she speaks very little, she is kind and friendly in every way.

She can often be seen carrying a bottle. If there's one thing Butter loves to do, it is giggle. She doesn't generally speak in full sentences, but she is pretty articulate for her age and often mimics others' speech. She likes to play with Scootch Raccoon, who is possibly the same age as her but he is weaned and potty trained. Unlike Peanut, Butter has no issues with doing the "Noodle Dance." She generally happily and quickly joins the dance and often spins around on her bottom during dances.

Despite being given the choice, Baby Butter would rather participate in "boyish" activities like her brother Peanut, rather than something like attending a tea party with her big sister Jelly and Pinch. She is extremely fond of splashing in puddles of mud. She's voiced by Gina Marie Tortorici.

Trivia

  • Butter is the only otter of the family to actually be brown like a real-life otter.
  • Unlike her brother and sister, she has dots for eyes like Doug, Stanley, and various characters in Jim Jinkins' shows.
  • If it's unknown why she's absent for some episodes, the reason why she's absent for Munchy's No Big Deal and Easy Pickings, it maybe the case that she is spending time with Mom or playing with Scootch.
  • Throughout the entire series, they never celebrated Butter's birthday.
  • Although Mr Bigdog was the last character to speak in PB&J Otter, the last original character to speak out of every character was Butter.
  • Butter started potty training in A Very Surprising Party.

Jelly and Butter

Jelly and Butter are both sisters and love each other a lot. Jelly is the oldest daughter and Butter is the youngest daughter. Jelly and Butter think that they know each other. They sometimes hug in some episodes. They first hugged in "A Tree Grows in Hoohaw" because Jelly says that it makes her think of her sister. Mostly Jelly hugs Peanut. But Jelly and Butter are sisters that help each other out or think of each other when they're apart.
