Pops Maellard is a main character of Regular Show. Pops is a rich, thin humanoid lollipop whose father owns the park as well as the house, in which Pops shares with Mordecai and Rigby. He is a billionaire that was locked up and protected for all or most of his childhood, which is why he takes such child like delight in everything he sees and does.
Pops is, simply put, lollipop-shaped. His body and limbs are all very stick-like while his head is abnormally large. He always wears a gentlemanly suit-and-slacks as well as a top hat. Pops also sports a white curved (almost handlebar) moustache. Aside from his facial hair, Pops is entirely bald.
Pops is in a perpetually optimistic mood, to a childish extent. He can best be described as being bubbly and effervescent most of the time, taking interest in little things. He tends to be overly ecstatic about every situation, and expresses himself as an upright gentleman to the point where he overly extends his words and sentences formally. Despite being an elderly man, Pops is very childlike and naïve about the world around him. It was due to an accident in "Prank Callers" when the gang accidentally knocks him over with the kart in his young age to make him back into a child. Therefore, he serves as somewhat of a non sequitur character. He also seems to like Mordecai and Rigby more than Benson ironically despite Mordecai and Rigby's irresponsible behavior and Benson's more responsible behavior (and Benson being his good friend). Pops' father Mr. Maellard owns the park. Even so, Pops relies on Benson for the upkeep of the park. Benson also seems to be responsible for taking care of Pops due to his childlike nature. Pops' character is taken from Quintel's short animation "The Naïve Man from Lolliland." In the episode "Prank Callers," it is implied that Pops was once a (somewhat) more serious man until Mordecai and Rigby (who had traveled back in time to the 80s) collided with his younger self, causing him apparent brain damage and turning him into the quirky character he is known as in the series. Pops is in a perpetually optimistic mood (brain damage from cell phone in the 80's and also got ran over by a golf cart by Mordecai and Rigby.) Most of the time, he can best be described as bubbly. However, Pops isn't one to be jolly when disrespected. Whenever he is not acting childishly, Pops acts like a gentleman, always addressing others politely, with one sole exception in "Think Positve where he serves as the main antagonist for the first time. Pops also possesses the most pleasant voice out of all the characters, his language style is unique where he will go to larger extents to scientifically or vividly describe an object that would normally be said in a few words.
Pops' childish mood makes him very gullible. Although anyone can take advantage of this, most people still respect Pops as a friend.
He is also known to take an interest in little things such as butterflies. An example of this is when, in "The Power," he laughs when a butterfly flies near him, and in "Think Positive," he is trying to catch butterflies in a jar. Pops is also known to love his cars, which he polishes and waxes in nearly every episode.
Pops seems to laugh very easily as seen in "Jinx" when he laughs at his reflection in the water.
Becca is Pops' best friend. Like Becca they have a lot in common like listening to old music and butterflies and everything else. He and Becca sometimes have tea party with him. When ever he is sad or get bullied Becca cheers him up and sometimes she sing him to sleep. Whenever he gets mad or angry Becca gets sad or thought he was mad or angry at her. Becca protect him from danger and hope nothing bad will ever happen to him, and she takes care of him whenever he gets sick or injured.
Lora is good friend. She sometimes helps him, and cheers him up when ever he is sad. She is glad that Pops is Becca's best friend and they both take care of Becca whenever she get sick or injured.
Benson is good friend. Still he sometimes reprimands Benson for his yelling and short temper with Mordecai, Rigby and Alex especially Becca. And rarely Benson scolds him for his childish attitude. He once even threatened to fire Benson for his anger issues before realizing it was the wrong thing to do until Lora, Alex and Becca help Benson to control his temer and anger issues.
Pops and Skips get along well. Skips has been in Pops' life since when he was little, And Skips is also good friends with his friends in the park.
Mordecai, along with Rigby, seems to be real good friends with Pops. Whenever they are seen together, the two seem to get along and have no problems. Mordecai and Rigby will help Pops whenever he's in trouble and help him out.
Though despite Rigby's wild nature, the two seem to get along very well, like letting Rigby borrow his phone, or his ol-timey radio. Rigby have prank him one time, but after the trouble he cause he didn't pull a prank on Pops again.
Muscle Man & Hi Five GhostEdit
Muscle Man and Hi Five Ghost seem to be good friends Muscle Man seems to think that Pops is funny (and/or Cool) as the two hang out sometimes. It looks like after Hi Five Ghost and Mordecai and Rigby, Pops may be Pops' best friend.
She seem to get along very well with Pops. Even though she get a little annoyed or confused when Pops say something old timey or doing some odd things. She often listen to his poems and makes some herself and sometime have to take care of Pops due to his childlike personality. She also helps him with somethings need to know or what to do.
