Rubble is the English Bulldog and one of the five tritagonists from the Nick, Jr./TvoKids show PAW Patrol. He is the constructor of the patrol in which he uses his tractor shovel for certain digging missions. It is shown in "Pups Get a Rubble" that he is the newest member (until the arrival of Everest), but he is the newest to live in the Lookout, while in the movie, he is living in Thunder Bay apartment with his owners, like other pups.
Rubble is voiced by Devan Cohen in the North American and Canadian versions of TV series and by Keegan Hedley in the movie. In the British version of TV series, he was voiced by Luca Townsend until Season 3, because he was replaced by Fin Harvey since Season 3.
Rubble is an English Bulldog puppy. He has brown fur with his belly, paws and most of his face being white, and bright brown eyes. His tail is so small that it can hardly be seen. He wears a yellow vest and hard hat, with the latter having a silver PAW Patrol logo on it. On his neck, he has a yellow pup tag with a wrench badge, while in the movie his tag is icon of Miles "Tails" Prower.
Despite appearing to be gruff, Rubble is actually very emotional and has a fondness for smaller animals, kittens in particular, and sometimes gives them cute nicknames like "itty-bitty.witty-kitty". He also has a fondness for food, as shown in the episode "Pups Save the Treats".
