Judy Tobin is one of the main characters in The Great North and the only daughter of Beef Tobin. She is the third child in the family, younger sister of Wolf, the “Alaskan twin” of Ham and older of Moon.
Judy is a sixteen-year-old girl with pale skin, short blonde hair, freckles, and braces. She wears a light blue sweater, green leggings with white polka dots, and brown boots. When she is outside she wears a dark blue coat.
Judy is artistic and creative. She cares greatly about her family and encourages them to get out of their comfort zones and helps them when they’re in a slump. She also loves writing articles about new people.
However she has a darker side to her, such as becoming angry at Ham when he secretly became the Cakelady of Lone Moose in “Feast of Not People Adventure”. She also becomes cruel and demeaning whenever she participates in curling as seen in “Curl Interrupted Adventure”.
Judy is close with her father. They often spend time together and enjoy doing so.
Like her brothers, Judy has a negative opinion of her mother and is glad that she left. Unbeknownst to her, Kathleen leaving scarred her from entering a relationship for four years after she left.
As well all her brothers, Judy is close to Wolf.
Out of all her brothers, Judy is closest to Ham. They are completely in sync and often spend time together. They have a rather long secret handshake and refer to each other as “Alaskan twins”, meaning they were born close together, only 9 months apart. In Pride and Prejudice Adventure, Judy is mad at Ham for kissing her date , Crispin Cienfuegos, at the Thomas Wintersbone dance, but after learning about the true life of Thomas Wintersbone, she forgives him.
As with all her brothers, Judy is close to Moon.
Judy is close with her sister-in law. In Avocado Barter Adventure Judy interviews Honeybee on her life in her hometown Fresno, California and how she met Judy’s eldest brother, Wolf.
Judy often sits on the roof of her family’s home and talks to an imaginary Alanis Morissette in the sky made up of the northern lights. Alanis often gives Judy advice and listens to her stories.
- Judy shares her voice actor with Tammy Larsen from Bob’s Burgers, another show produced by Bento Box Entertainment and 20th Television.
- Unlike most characters in Loren Bouchard-related shows, Judy's upper row of teeth is visible whenever her mouth is open.
- Judy may be bisexual or a lesbian. While she has been interested in Crispin Cienfuegos and Steven Huang (at the same time rebuffing the advances of Gill Beavers), as of Good Beef Hunting Adventure there are at least 4 separate occasions where she expresses an attraction to women. In Beef's Craig Beef Adventure, she remarked that Dusty and Londra and her crew looked "really impressive, intimidating, and kind of sexy" and said she would "file that away to explore later". In Stools Rush In Adventure, the subtext between Judy and Chrissy at the end of the episode could be read as romantic. In Good Beef Hunting Adventure she has this exchange with her imaginary friend who lives in the northern lights, Alanis Morrissette:
Judy: "I have this system where I picture each of the words with boobs and a big round butt so I pay attention."
Alanis: "Yeah, nothing keeps your focus like boobs and butts."
Judy: "Oh I know!"
