Yodel is a gray gorilla who appears to dress as a warm-clothed hiker, which is also where his name "Yodel" originated from, for yodel is usually what is thought hikers would do up on the mountain peaks. He initially wears the blue aloha shirt. If you look closely, he also has a white bushy mustache and warm winter hat.
Below is a brief description of the lazy personality. For more information, click here.
Yodel has a lazy personality, which means he will enjoy eating and sleeping. He won't get along with jock villagers due to their different lifestyles, one always exercising and eating healthy while the other is never exercising and eats junk food most of the time. Yodel also won't get along with snooty villagers due to him not caring about his physical appearance. Cranky villagers will admire their laid-back lifestyle. When wearing one of your designs he may ask you to design him a shirt with a picture of food on it.
As an islander, Yodel has a favorite fruit and a fruit that he is allergic to. Feeding him the allergy fruit will reduce the likelihood of him dropping money bags. Yodel is allergic to cherries and loves apples.
- Yodel's initial phrase, "odelay" is a reference to the sound people make when they yodel.
