Biography[edit | edit source]

Phased out[edit | edit source]
Sophia was phased out of the show after "Strictly by the Book!" in the third season. The actual reason for her absence was apparently the writers' inability to decide how to portray her.

Sophia doesn't hate Cyril to the core, but she doesn't really trust him as she sees him as an obstacle that gets between her and Cedric (despite calling him a "horrible beastly beast" in The Raccoons and the Lost Star), towards the end of her appearances on the show she seems to hate him a little less like in "Strictly by the Book!", Cyril teams up with her and the rest of the gang in order to steal Cedric's "Improve University" Manual.
Just like Bert is Cedric's friend, Melissa is Sophia's friend. When the chips are down for the boys you can always count on Sophia and Melissa to get them out of a sticky situation.
In The Raccoons and the Lost Star, Sophia is shown to be Broo's owner on the jungle planet. Back here on Earth she has a friend relationship with the little puppy and is always keen to help when Broo comes frantically barking to tell Schaeffer and the others that Bert or one of the other members of the forest is in trouble.
