Lily Bobtail is one of the three main protagonists in the Peter Rabbit (TV Series). She is Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny's quick-witted best friend and travel companion who always carries many useful objects in her 'Just In Case' pocket on her dress, always has a ladybug named "Florence" and always claims to know a thing or two "for a fact". Unlike Peter and Benjamin who were originally created by Beatrix Potter, Lily is a newcomer who was created by the production team for the series.
An only child, she is the daughter Of Dr. Bobtail and Mrs. Bobtail, who recently moved to Lake District. In the US version, Lily is voiced by Michaela Dean and Harriet Perring in the UK.
Lily is one of the hugging and cleverest Rabbits in the whole show. She likes hugging Benjamin and Peter. On Christmas Tale and Radish Robber she thought Mr. Tod was a kind fox. This practical, quirky bunny is most at home following her passion of reading and finding stuff out. She mostly says in her life "I know that for a fact." Her unquenchable thirst for knowledge and an innate curiosity leads her to be more methodical, cautious, and logical in her approach to adventures than the impulsive rascal Peter. Her logical approach and patient attention to detail can help her friends see something vital others might have missed. She always keeps an eye out on Florence - the Ladybird.
Lily's personality is nothing short of a book smart scientist, nerd, and detective. She is the intellectual brains of the group who solves to learn and is logical. This is supported by the fact that she sticks to science, evidence and facts from books rather than use her senses impulsively and rashly like Peter, who despite being adventurous, selfless, and brave like her, is a street smart but mischievous rascal.
Lily also has a cool-headed detective mind, as she uses her magnifying glass closely and carefully looking for and examining clues while going exploring and detective hunting having a much more scientific approach. She rants and rambles about scientific facts, much to the annoyance and boredom of Peter in addition to ranting about previous events (such as being chased by Mr. Tod) to other protagonists. She also knows certain tips and tricks by the book to liberate from danger. For example, she knows how to unlock locks (especially old rusty steel padlocks) with her hairpin (a bobby pin), tie and untie knots, and more.
In addition to being book smart and scientific, Lily is also very friendly, gentle, kind, welcoming, well-mannered, compassionate, and beautiful. She's truly a great friend who cares about Peter and Benjamin and gets along with them very well.
Lily is a very book smart rabbit due to her passion for reading books and has a thirst for knowledge, and curiosity. She is very adventurous, brave, kind, caring and loyal just like Peter but pays attention to details that others miss, and is always prepared for whatever is to come her way using things in her "just in case pocket." In the first episode, Lily said that she had a photographic memory, which has also helped the three on adventures.
Lily is an extremely cute and adorable light gray, and white bunny of the light-gray variety with blue eyes, and is always wearing a red dress with some pink that has her "Just in case pocket" which is pink with a red flower on it. She has a pink sweater with purple flower-shaped-buttons on the right side and over the dress. She has a pink headband over the head with a flower on it.
