The Blue Aardvark (also simply known as Aardvark) is the titular anti-hero/main antagonist of The Ant and the Aadvark.

He was voiced by John Byner in the classic shorts and by Eddie Garvar in Pink Panther and Pals.


The Blue Aardvark is a blue aardvark, with clothing that matches the color of his fur.


The Blue Aardvark is normally the one causing trouble and is obsessed with eating Charlie the ant (in fairness this is his instinct, being a predator). However, the lengths he goes to in order to pursue his tiny opponent are often extreme and sometimes rather unpleasant, though he almost always tends to be the one who recieves the worst punishment such as being beat up. It can be debatable as to whether or not he has caught an ant; some episodes say he has never done so, while some say otherwise. He often complains about the difficulties of being an aardvark and/or catching ants.


Pink Panther

Aardvark and Charlie return in the 1993 version of The Pink Panther Show. Instead of starring in their own cartoons, they star alongside the Pink Panther in his segments. Charlie serves as one of Pink Panther's allies in the segments and Aardvark is still trying to eat Charlie, but he is always foiled by Pink Panther and Charlie. Though in some cartoons, the three join forces, only for Aardvark and Charlie to go back to their usual schtick. In this series, John Beyner reprises his role from the original cartoons.

Pink Panther and Pals

Charlie and the Aardvark return to having segments of their own in this revival. He still has his ethnic accent, is still willing to catch the ant, and still receives punishment for his actions. Unlike The Ant and The Aardvark, he appeared shorter and thinner than his classic design and is now voiced by Eddie Garvar instead of John Byner. He is also portrayed as more stupid, arrogant, egotistical, and manipulative.

He once got three wishes from a magic genie but instead of simply wishing for Charlie, he wished for stupid things such as a suit made of tape and a tiny race car to get Charlie, proving his ignorance. 

Arguably, his most villainous deeds were in the following episodes:

  • In "Z is for Aardvark", he lies to an innocent baby zebra by pretending to be its mother.
  • "Eli the Aardvark", he hit Eli the Elephant on his head, giving him amnesia and tricking him into thinking he's his brother, then uses him to hunt down and capture Charlie.
  • In "Awful Aardvark", he takes advantage of the public by pretending to be a scary criminal, and as punishment, he is beat up by the other animals.
