Tasha is a yellow hippopotamus, who is one of The Crusaders' close friends.
Tasha is assertive and likes to be in charge most of the time. She is rational, skeptical, and highly motivated to get her own way. Tasha is normally very opinionated. She is difficult to frighten, a fact she takes pride in.
Tasha tends to play a somewhat antagonistic role throughout the first season, often acting bossy towards the other characters. In later episodes, her personality becomes bolder and less overbearing.
Tasha is also Uniqua's much admired and always eagerly-awaited play date. She looks sweet as pie but underneath her extra girly exterior beats the heart of a CEO - tough-as-nails, take-no-prisoners, my-way-or-the-highway kind of gal. The others have learned to respect her bossiness, and normally let her take control.
Tasha lives in an yellow-colored house (located in Nick Jr. City) to the left of Pablo's home. It is visited the least out of the five main characters' residences. Whenever the Backyardigans are shown heading to Tasha's house for a snack, they walk behind Pablo's house to get there.
Physical Appearance Edit
Tasha is a yellow-skinned hippo with a red-pink tongue and two nostrils above her mouth. She wears a pair of red Mary-Janes and an orange dress with eight light-orange flowers printed on it in random spots.
