James "Mushmouth" Mush is a member of the Junkyard Gang. In the Junkyard Band he plays a homemade guitar.


Mushmouth is a very laid back, friendly, easy going fellow. However, similar to most of the gang, he can be responsible when he needs to. He'll always lend a hand when the Gang is undertaking a project.His most prominent characteristic is his massive speech impediment. (which adds -ba at the end of most of his words). Aside from the occasional input into a group conversation, Mushmouth usually tends to keep to himself.


Mushmouth is a short, round African-American teenager. His blubbering speech is caused by his slack jaw and big ol lips. Despite his heavy speech impediment, Mushmouth wasn't shown to be overly dumb.

He wears a red knit cap, a blue scarf, a yellow t-shirt, red pants (held by a black rope tied to his waist), and yellow sneakers with blue circles.

In the film, his appearance has many notable differences. Instead of his pants being held by a black rope, they're now held by rainbow-colored suspenders. His sneakers are now white and yellow.
