Ladonna Compson is a girl from Louisiana who moved to Elwood City. She is currently a third grader in Mr. Ratburn's class. She tells many interesting stories about her family and likes to explore all the new places in Elwood City.

Biography

Early life

Not much is known about Ladonna before she came to Elwood City, except that she lived in Louisiana. She took a 16 hour drive from her home to Elwood City.

She states that she "once caught a crab as big as a pizza" in Louisiana.

Elwood City

Ladonna and her family later moved to Elwood City.[2] She met Arthur and D.W. when they visited her house, which is four houses down the block. She quickly became friends with her classmates due to her storytelling ability, and everyone wanted to hang out with her. Eventually, she ran out of stories to tell, and was caught when she made up one. After showing Arthur the details of a recent true story, she was able to regain her friends' trust.

Ladonna helped Bud and D.W. understand the court system through a comic she was reading: Habeas Canine: Legal Beagle. She later served in the jury at the court trial of Compson vs. Tibble.[3]

She later visited the Sugar Bowl[4] and watched the school's annual Arithmattack competition.[5]

When Fern couldn't think of any new ideas for Muffy's Fiction Forum, Ladonna told her stories about her Aunt Mable and Uncle Silas. Fern copied the plots and changed the names, upsetting Ladonna. In response, Ladonna wrote a story about "Ferg" stealing "Ladella's" stories, which made Fern realize her wrongdoing.[6] The two have since made up.

Muffy invited Ladonna to her house for a potluck when Francine was attempting to be a vegetarian.[7] While she did not technically bring meat, per Muffy's orders, Ladonna did bring a dish of collard greens which had been simmered in duck fat for 3 hours. She left in a hurry to "finish a book report".

She and Arthur teamed up to make a shoebox diorama based on the expeditions of Annie Smith Peck. Ladonna convinced Bud and D.W. to explore the Reads' backyard so the two could leave their older siblings alone to work on the project, but her plan backfired when D.W. and Bud decided to camp overnight in the backyard.[8] Due to becoming hooked on a TV show, Ladonna accidentally left Bud and D.W. unattended for most of the evening; fortunately, they were still safe and sound when she and Arthur checked on them.

In the fall, Ladonna planned to make a gourd person, pick apples, bake a pie, and rake leaves, all on the same day.[9] Unfortunately, she had planned too many things at once and messed up most of her goals. The following day, she decided to ignore any previously-scheduled events so she could take a walk with Arthur.

Physical appearance

Ladonna Compson is a rabbit with a tan complexion and brownish-red hair. She wears an olive green shirt, long blue jeans, and white sneakers. She is one of the taller of her classmates.

Alternate apparel

  • Winter clothes
  • Pajamas
  • Labcoat

For the winter, she wears an orange winter jacket with black buttons and white lining and has a purple lined green, yellow and purple snow hat with a pair of purple and green snow gloves and a pair of black boots with white buckles.

Also, she wears light purple pajamas to bed.

When she imagined herself making a Gourd Person, Ladonna wore a white lab coat and safety goggles over her normal clothes.

Personality

Ladonna is very outgoing and adventurous, and she loves to tell stories. She likes to take walks and explore Elwood City, although she's only been there for a short amount of time. However, she sometimes lacks confidence and doesn't think she's exciting or interesting, which caused her to lie about some parts of her life in Louisiana.

She loves exploring in the woods.

Favorite foods

She loves cake; her favorite is king cake. She eats so much that her father sometimes calls her a "garbage disposal with legs". She can't stand beets, however; even the sight of beets upsets her stomach.

Relationships

Friends

Ladonna gets along with most of the kids at Lakewood Elementary, even the Tough Customers, but many of her friends ignore her after she lies about her life like the bear story. However, Arthur managed to get them to accept her.

Trivia

  • Her original home was a "16 hour drive" from Elwood City. This may be a reference to her first appearing in the premiere of the show's sixteenth season.

Cultural references

  • Ladonna is one of few non-Postcards from Buster characters from a real-world place.
    • She is also one of a few characters who speak with an accent, hers being Southern American, specifically from Louisiana.
  • Her Louisina accent sounds very similar to Sandy Cheeks from SpongeBob SquarePants, because there's a mix of a Texas accent with a very different form of dialect.
