The show is mainly based off Braly’s own childhood experiences in his visits to Thailand.

Canon Overview

The series focuses on the adventures of 13-year-old Anne Boonchuy and frog-person companion Sprig Plantar. In these adventures, Anne adjusts to life in the titular world of Amphibia as she tries a way back to her own world while a true friendship between Anne and Sprig grows.

The main draw for the series was the representation of Thai characters through the main character Anne Boonchuy, who is voiced by Brenda Song (of The Suite Life of Zach & Cody fame), who is herself half-Thai, and the show itself being based off the creator’s experiences in Thailand (The creator himself is also half-Thai.). [1]

The series is often compared to Gravity Falls for sharing similar elements and art style. This is supported by the creator having also worked on Gravity Falls.

Terminology

  • Amphibsona: A -sona of either a human or a frog-person in the Amphibia universe.
  • Spranne: a portmanteau of Sprig Plantar and Anne Boonchuy, once canonically mentioned in “Flood, Sweat, and Tears”
