Tobias Fünke is the husband of Lindsay Bluth, father of Maeby Fünke, and uncle of George Michael Bluth. He was the chief resident of psychiatry at Massachusetts General Hospital until he lost his license for giving CPR to a man who was not actually having a heart attack. At one point, he was licensed as both an analyst and a therapist, supposedly making him the first licensed "analrapist".
George Oscar Bluth, Jr. is the oldest Bluth son and the father of Steve Holt. By trade a part-time magician, he is a founding member of the "Magicians' Alliance", a group that was formed to preserve magicians' secrets; he was later blacklisted by them for unwittingly revealing how one of his illusions was performed. He is known for incorporating over-the-top theatrics into his magic shows, including pyrotechnics, dance routines, and wind machines.
ucille Bluth is the matriarch of the Bluth family. She is the mother of Gob, Michael, Buster, and the adoptive mother of Lindsay and Hel-loh "Annyong" Bluth, as well as wife to George Sr. Her grandchildren are George Michael Bluth, Steve Holt (Gob's son) and Maeby Fünke and they call her "Gangy". She carried on an affair with George, Sr.'s twin brother Oscar.
Known for:Having a secret life as a movie producer
Mae "Maeby" Fünke (born April 18, 1990) is the teenage daughter of Lindsay and Tobias. Maeby's conception is an unanswered question and running joke throughout the series. In the first season, Lucille hints that Maeby is a test-tube baby; this is again implied by Tobias in "Out on a Limb" in season 2.
George Michael Bluth (born March 3, 1990) is the teenage son of Michael Bluth. He is a student, and he works at the family frozen banana stand, where he is "Mister Manager." He is straight-laced and obedient.
Lindsay Bluth Fünke (born 1965) is the adopted daughter of George Sr. and Lucille Bluth who adopted her to "stick it" to Stan Sitwell and then raised her and Michael to believe they are twins. She is married to Tobias Fünke and they are the parents of Mae, better known as "Maeby".
Michael Bluth is the second oldest Bluth son and the main protagonist of Arrested Development. He is the father of George Michael Bluth. His wife's death is usually the subject of tasteless and unaware jokes made by his family members.
Oscar can be distinguished from the balding George by his flowing "lion's mane" hair, due to lack of stress in his life. He is a frequent user of marijuana. He served as a "croc spotter" on a swift boat in the Vietnam War (yelling out "Croc!" whenever he saw a crocodile), and once wrote a song for David Cassidy, "All You Need Are Smiles", that made Joan Baez call him "the shallowest man in the world."
"Hel-loh" claims his name is the Korean word for "One day", a name given to him by his grandfather, whose idea for a frozen banana cart was stolen by George Sr. and used as inspiration for the banana stand that launched the Bluth empire; his grandfather vowed to one day get even for his stolen banana stand and ensuing deportation. Lucille adopts him midway through the first season.
George Oscar Bluth, Sr., called "Pop-Pop" by his grandchildren, is the head of the Bluth family and the husband of Lucille Bluth. George Sr. was the CEO of the Bluth Company, which he founded. However, after years of "creative accounting" practices, he became the subject of an investigation by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and was imprisoned. While in prison, George Sr. continues to try to exert control over the company, often using Gob to undermine Michael's authority.
Kitty maintained a long term affair with George Sr. and a fevered yet brief liaison with Gob, despite the fact he is disgusted by her. After George Sr. was imprisoned, Kitty stayed on to work for Michael.
Zuckerkorn represents George Sr., the family patriarch, who has been arrested and charged with defrauding investors, and light treason (George Bluth Sr., had built homes in Iraq with Saddam Hussein.) Zuckerkorn often appears languid and distracted in his handling of the case. He does not seem particularly adept in the courtroom and multiple references have been made to him being a bad lawyer.
Steve Holt is a senior (taking the year for the third time) and football star at the high school George Michael and Maeby attend, who often shouts his name, "Steve Holt!", while pumping his fists in the air.
Lucille Austero, often referred to as "Lucille Two", is the friend, neighbor, and chief social rival of Lucille Bluth. Lucille Austero lives in the apartment next to Lucille and Buster Bluth in the Balboa Towers.
