In the series, Gisele and Martin are "tooth mice": mice who perform the duties of tooth fairies. When a child in need loses a milk tooth, the two mice (assisted by their friend Arthur), retrieve the tooth and give the child a fitting gift. This they do on orders from their Queen Elisa.
- Gisele (Voiced by Sally Ann Marsh) - One of the tooth mice. She's usually the one to collect a tooth and slip a present under a pillow.
- Martin (Voiced by Mathonwy Reeves) - Gisele's partner. He's usually the one to throw a grappling hook and line for Gisele to climb on.
- Arthur (Voiced by David Kelly) - A cormorant and the two mice's helper who gives them rides and prevents anyone from interfering with their job.
- Queen Elisa (Voiced by Penelope Keith) - The bossy and snappy queen of the Milk Teeth Kingdom. She decides what fitting presents Gisele and Martin must exchange for milk teeth.
- Roland Rat - A thieving nuisance who likes to steal the two mice's presents for himself, but is always thwarted.
- Romuald the Reindeer (Voiced by Nigel Planer) -
