Additional Information


  • All family members are voiced by Phil Hendrie (even Frida and the Encyclopod).
  • The Waterfalls have only ever appeared in episodes and comics with a 5 in the production code and, excluding Hutch, they all die in media where the 5 is at the end of the production code.
  • Technically, The Last Encyclopod counts as a Waterfall because it has the DNA of Hutch Waterfall. Though it is unlikely that The Last Encyclopod will return.
