Sunspot is Jet's alien pet and a major character in Ready Jet Go!.
Sunspot is a Bortronian pet, a kind of a cross between a dog, cat, rabbit, and raccoon. While he can't speak at all, he likes to imitate the sounds of various other animals and is very expressive through body language and facial expressions. He can be pretty wacky and he has a good sense of humor.
He’s usually way ahead of what the kids are doing, thinking, or realizing. He is good at everything. He is usually prepared for just about anything and pulls needed objects out of nowhere.
He can be gluttonous and has a rather big appetite for Earth food, including hoagies.
He despises bathtubs, though he'll take a bath if it's in a lake. It was revealed that he had great-great-great grandmother in Sunspot and the Great Red Spot.
Sunspot is a Bortronian pet alien with bead-like brown eyes and orange fur. He has a long tail that resembles that of a raccoon's. It has brown stripes. Sunspot has long bunny-like ears that are brown on the inside. He has a white splotch on his belly that resembles a sun.
