Uniqua 5






LaShawn Tinah Jefferies


The Backyardigans

Uniqua is one of the main characters from the Backyardigans. She never missed an episode. Only one on the Backyardigans who has appeared in every episode of every season but she is absent for eight episodes of Wipeout Canada and piano player Kelsi Nielsen of Pembroke, Ontario appears in all episodes of the show.

A curious, self-confident and high-spirited pink character (a black character in the end of all episodes of Wipeout Canada) of no existing real-life species (the series uses the name "Uniqua" for both the character and her species on High School Musical) wearing pink polka-dotted overalls. She has a pair of antennae on top of her head, the function of which is unknown. She is almost always sweet and friendly, though her strong opinions and occasional stubbornness get in the way of her relationships. She is more of a tomboy unlike her friend Tasha; where Tasha would like to have a tea party, she'd rather explore a cave or climb a mountain. She often imagines herself in roles requiring brains and fortitude (scientist, pirate captain, etc.), and loves books (as seen in episodes such as "The Masked Retriever"), but she can sometimes be more feminine (in French) like Tasha in a few episodes. She is the only main character to be seen in every episode of the Backyardigans, but not in Wipeout Canada.

Creator Janice Burgess describes Uniqua as 'the child she wishes she was like as child'.[1] She has been called simply "Uniqua, the pink" in the first season's Knights Are Brave And Strong.

Because she hates some Yo Gabba Gabba! characters like Muno, Foofa, Plex, Brobee, Muno's Sister and Toodee.

Preview for the Wipeout Canada show

Uniqua is a female character from Pembroke, Ontario (a vibrant little city nicknamed The Heart of the Ottawa Valley) because of her unique arm-wrestling and powers from Nickelodeon. She loves all Ontario contestants and walks away in every episode of Canada's Wipeout during the Wipeout Zone.

Uniqua first appeared on The Apprentice in season 7, where Nadia Comàneci, Marilu Henner, Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth and Tiffany Fallon, all from Empersario are eliminated. Her last appearance is episode 6 in season 5, where Patricia Velàsquez and Dayana Mendoza are eliminated.
