Junior Wetworth is also one of the main characters in the series. He comes across as villain-like throughout the first two seasons. He mellowed down during the last two seasons, following Bigweed and Lil Seaweed replacing him as the real main villains. Junior probably has the most character development of any character in "The Snorks."
Junior was born as Wellington Wetworth Junior in Snorkland. His father is Governor Wetworth, and his mother is the First Lady of Snorkland, and the co-chair snork of COWS, Committee Of Women Snorks (Up, Up and Awave). While his father was campaigning for Governor of Snorkland, Junior became best friends with Allstar. At the time, he was being bullied by Moose, so Allstar taught him to stand up for himself. Their friendship abruptly ended when it got to his head (The Day They Fixed Junior Wetworth). In junior high, Junior owned Occy and trained him to be an "attack puppy." He later disowned him for not obeying his commands (Junior's Octopuppy). But deep down, Junior is kind, caring, and warm-hearted.
PersonalityJunior is often described as a spoiled snob. He is vicious in Seasons 1 and 2, but becomes nicer in Seasons 3 and 4. He supposedly changed his ways on Casey's birthday (The Day They Fixed Junior Wetworth). Still, he is rude towards others, especially Allstar. He is the one learning many lessons in episodes. He has a very high ego, and wants to be very rich. He has even practiced campaigning for governor, which once caused him to get sucked into an alternative future. As a result, he learned he should treat others with respect if he wants to be governor someday (The Shape Of Snorks To Come).
Junior takes after his father, Governor Wetworth. They even get involved in Allstar's adventures, mainly to sabotage him and his friends. On the other hand, if anything goes wrong, Junior gets severely punished (Which Snork Snitched, Das Boot, The King of Kelp).
WillieJunior is Willie Wetworth's older brother. Although Willie looks up to him, and wants to play with him, Junior will treat him poorly, put him down, and occasionally use him.
Junior is very close to his grandfather, and takes up after him.
After Junior disowned Occy, he and Occy began to have a really rocky relationship. Whenever Junior's around, Occy will growl at him and chase him around.
In Seasons 3 and 4, Junior appeared to have a crush on Daffney. In fact, after Dimmy disappeared from the show, Junior and Daffney were frequently paired with each other, sometimes gaining more attention than the Allstar and Casey pairing.
In Seasons 1 and 2, Junior had a huge crush on his frenemy, Casey. He would often stalk and tease her because of it. He even disguised himself as Tooter just so he could go to the Prom with her (Snorkdance).
Junior and Allstar used to be friends when they were younger, but now are rivals in the first two seasons, then frenemies in the last two seasons. He often calls him "Allwet," and tries to outperform him at everything he does. He is often jealous of Allstar, especially in the earlier episodes when it came to Casey. But in "Allstar's Last Hour," Casey says that he cares about Allstar.
Junior is an orange colored snork with bluish hair. He is often seen wearing a fancy blue and white suit, and will occasionally wear a hat.
Junior's voice is very high, and sounds almost tough. There are even hints of a New Jersey/New York accent when he speaks.

Though most of the time Junior isn't as evil as Gaston.
