Chub McReady: sometimes called plain "Reddy," for short, on account of his fiery "thatch" a chum of Matt, with a streak of genius for inventing things that often lands the bold experimenter in trouble.

Colonel Plympton: secretary of the Stark-Frisbie Motor Company.
Uncle Tom: an old darky who was once a member of a traveling dramatic company, but who is now, by self-appointment, Motor Matt's "'fishul mascot."
