Root is a character in the Barnyard franchise. He is Peck's arch-rival.

Early Life

None Known.


Root acts as a stand-up comedian and hosts the weekly talent show at the Barnyard. He often makes wisecracks at the animals when he makes his jokes, which is part of his charm. Root can be arrogant and a bit of a jerk at times, but he was quite impressed with Peck being brave just for Hanna. 


Root is a buff rooster. He has a large comb, orange and blue feathers, and a yellow beak.


  • Both Peck and Root are romantically interested in Hanna.
  • Root is the only bird character to be shown with teeth.
    • Though Peck can be seen briefly with teeth in the film when he and Freddy are paragliding and in a few early episodes.
