Thomas "Tommy" Tibble and Timothy "Timmy" Tibble are energetic twin brothers in D.W.'s preschool class. Together they are known as the Tibble twins or the Tibbles. They are the main antagonists of D.W.'s own episodes.
Timmy and Tommy are bears in the show and humans in the book. They always dress identically. They normally wear yellow T-shirts, purple shorts, yellow socks, and black and white sneakers. As they are identical twins, Timmy always wears a blue scarf while Tommy wears a red one to differentiate. Originally in the books, they looked more like humans and less like bears, but that changed in the cartoon series. Notably, however, in even later book releases, they continued to appear as humans, despite the significant art shift in the books towards an appearance more in line with that of the television series.
In one episode, they both wear blue jeans with a yellow stripe and dark-grey sneakers. Timmy wears a blue shirt, while Tommy wears a red one, each with yellow design.
Their personalities can be described as manipulative (for instance when they trick people so they can get what they want as was seen in several episodes, including To Tibble the Truth), liars, and sadistic. They could even be described as a fair weather friend (for those of you who don't know, a fair weather friend is someone who only helps when it's advantageous to themselves) as is the case in Never, Never, Never! where they tricked D.W. into thinking they care about her in order to get her toys and destroy them in front of her face.

Postcards from Buster
Timmy and Tommy are mischievous, clever, reckless and often really mean and annoying (Sometimes one more than the other), though deep down they are good kids. Timmy is more independent and meaner than his brother, as seen in "Double Tibble Trouble" and "Attack of the Turbo Tibbles." "Two Minutes" and "Whistling in the Wind" reveal that Tommy is two minutes older, causing him to act superior to Timmy in both episodes. In "Double Tibble Trouble," Tommy is less energetic and feels sad when Timmy is sick, but at the end of the episode, when Tommy gets sick, Timmy doesn't seem sad and behaves like always. In "Attack of the Turbo Tibbles," Timmy is the one who hurts D.W.. They each have their own ways of annoying others, usually by yelling louder than one another. Tommy also seems to have more of a sensitive side than Timmy.
Timmy and Tommy live with their grandmother in a large house that looks almost haunted.
- Mrs. Tibble: Timmy and Tommy's grandmother. She loves them very much but doesn't always show awareness of their bad behavior, though she does occasionally show signs of distress at their actions. The Tibbles do not tell her about their misbehavior, and when they do, they censor it to not sound like bullying. In "Mind Your Manners", they force themselves to learn manners in order to take her out to dinner. They usually spend all of their time at her house when they're not in preschool.
- Trixie Tibble:" Timmy and Tommy's mother. She is first mentioned in "D.W.'s Backpack Mishap," where we find out that she used to take them on trips around the world.
- D.W. Read: Timmy and Tommy are her friends, but often try to compete with and pester her. They bully her in "D.W., Queen of the Comeback", and scam her out of all her toys (which they then destroy) in "Never, Never, Never."
- Emily: She is D.W.'s best friend. They often try to compete with her as well.
- James MacDonald: In "Night of the Tibble," James is invited to a sleepover with the Tibbles. They are genuinely excited about it, and tire themselves out while preparing for his visit.
