Chuck is an American twin-rotored helicopter. He comes from America and of course, doesn't understand much British English well. He sometimes gets cocky, acts like a big baby and likes to show off, but this led him to trouble when he disrupted an air show and finished up in a pond. He also has a bad habit of calling Lionel Captain.


Chuck has appeared in every episode of Budgie the Little Helicopter to date, except for The Runaway Train.


Chuck is based on the Boeing CH-47 Chinook. These helicopters are commonly used for military purposes.

Voice Actors

He is voiced by Kerry Shale in the English dub, who has also voiced various characters in Thomas & Friends.
