Phil of the Future

Characters

Philip "Phil" Diffy (born 2107), played by Ricky Ullman: Phil Diffy is the main character in the series. He is a 9th (Season 1) / 10th (Season 2) grader at H.G. Wells Junior/Senior High School. He seems to be the most "in tune" with how things work in this century. Phil frequently has to make up excuses to hide the fact that he is from the future. He is the best friend of Keely Teslow and eventually becomes her boyfriend. Pim Diffy (born 2109), played by Amy Bruckner: Pim Diffy is Phil's younger sister. She is a 7th (Season 1) / 8th (Season 2) grader at H.G. Wells Junior/Senior High. Pim is a mischievous girl who is constantly up to no good and is even prone to megalomania. Pim is especially known for liking to pull pranks on people, mainly on Phil, Debbie Berwick and Vice Principal Hackett. Pim tries to make Phil miserable whenever she can. She hangs out with a young boy "Li'l Danny" Dawkins". She also tries to avoid Debbie Berwick and Candida. Repeatedly in the show, she looks for ways to dominate the world, and universe. Even though Pim often causes trouble for Phil, and has a tough attitude, she also cares about her brother but keeps it hidden most of the time.

Lloyd Diffy (born 2074), played by Craig Anton: Lloyd Diffy is Phil and Pim's goofy dad, who is working on repairing the time machine. He was an engineer in 2121, and loves "older music". He is paranoid about the government (and Vice Principal Hackett) figuring out he and his family are from the future. During the Diffys' stay, Lloyd and Curtis got jobs at the Mantis hardware store.

Barbara (née Speckle) Diffy (born 2076), played by Lise Simms: Barbara Diffy is Phil and Pim's mom. She is very interested in how things work in this century. Unlike other mothers, though, Barbara seems to let her kids figure things out on their own. She loves to cook the old fashion way, however, her food usually ends up with something being wrong, because in 2121 they spray food out of a can. Before the show premiered, it was said she had an artificial body, but none of the episodes ever proved this. She forced Pim to be friends with Debbie even though Pim hated Debbie.

Keely Teslow (born 1991), played by Alyson Michalka: Keely Teslow is Phil's best friend and eventually his girlfriend. She is the only person who knows Phil and his family are from the future. Keely Teslow is an energetic and bubbly girl who aspires to be a reporter. She starts to harbor romantic feelings for Phil during Season 2. She sometimes uses Phil's gadgets as a shortcut for schoolwork. She is notable on the show for her numerous hairstyles and colorful clothes. In the later episodes of the show, she hosts her own daily news program on the school's closed circuit broadcasting system. In the episode "The Giggle", she gets to look ahead at her own future and learns that she does, in fact, become a successful news reporter. It is also noted that she is wearing a wedding ring, but refuses to see who it is. In the final episode she and Phil finally reveal their feelings for each other and start dating after being voted Cutest Couple (leading to a hilarious scene where she reads that on the announcements before realizing what she said).

Curtis the Caveman (born circa 30,000 B.C.), played by J.P. Manoux: Curtis is a Caveman (Cro-Magnon, as mentioned in Dinner Time.) who stowed away in the Diffy's time machine when they went back to visit the Stone Age. The Diffys struggle to make Curtis seem like a normal person, and often pretend he is Phil's uncle. Throughout the episodes, he learns more English.

Vice Principal Neil Hackett (born 1969), played by J.P. Manoux: Vice Principal Hackett is the Vice Principal at Phil, Keely and Pim's school, H.G. Wells Junior/Senior High School. In the school, he is Phil's teacher in science and Pim's teacher in history. He is often found snooping around the Diffys' house as he tries to figure out where they are really from, though he believes that they are aliens. J.P. Manoux also plays Curtis the Caveman.
 



Phil of the Future

Minor Characters

Deborah Hortence "Debbie" Berwick (born 1992), by Kay Panabaker: Debbie is the complete opposite of Pim and she has a very happy attitude towards life. She hardly ever gets mad and is very nice. Debbie also considers Pim to be her best friend. Because of this Pim likes to take advantage of Debbie's good-natured personality. She doesn't like raisins or chihuahuas or naughty nibblers. She lives with her grandma and her curfew is 6:00 pm. Debbie also teaches a yoga class. Her other friends are Neckbrace Lana and Silent Maya. Debbie used to date Bradley until Pim broke them up by changing Debbie's personality but Debbie went back to normal. Debbie enjoys singing and is in the school band. She is written out of the show in season 2. It was revealed in the Halloween special that she was an evil cyborg from the future who was destroyed by Phil. She melted and then she was never heard from again.

Tia (played by Brenda Song): Keely's friend during the Season 1. She is vain, selfish and conceited. She moved away in season 2 and was replaced by Via.

In the episode "Get Ready to Go-Go," Phil went to a Sadie Hawkins dance with her, after a near-miss in returning to the future ruined his plans to go with Keely.

Owen (played by Michael Mitchell): Phil's friend in Season 2. He replaced Seth. He is not that smart and is laid-back, also consantly trying to hit on girls (though he never succeeds).
