Sproutie was the first, and much-loved, big boss of the Kingdom of Peas. She was the twin sister of Gerty and one of the threesome known as the Big Bibs (which consisted of Gerty, Sproutie and Pickles). She loved biting hosepipes, hunting for fruit loops, sitting in the vegetable bowl and, most of all, sleeping... usually on her back with her legs in the air. She once hid in a hole in the wall for two hours and refused to come out until she was presented with a lump of cheese and a blob of strawberry jam.
