Friends Mordecai (a blue jay) and Rigby (a brown raccoon) work as groundskeepers at a park and spend time entertaining themselves by any means. Benson(a gumball machine) and Skips(a yeti) are annoyed by this. Pops (an English gentleman with a lollipop-shaped head) enjoys it. The overweight green Muscle Man and High-Five Ghost are neutral. Rigby often pressures Mordecai into doing bad stuff.
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.
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 behavior and Benson's more responsible behavior.
He often uses candy as currency (shown in the episode "Don", when he tries to pay for the audit with lollipops and the episode The Power, where he offers Mordecai and Rigby a raise in lollipops).
In the episode "Prank Callers" it is suggested that he did not become eccentric until Mordecai and Rigby travel to 1982 and accidentally run over him with a golf cart.
Pops is the owner of the park and is the boss of all of the characters, but relies on Benson for the upkeep of the park.
Pops' character is taken from Quintel's short animation The Naïve Man From Lolliland.
|Season 3 / Episode 9: - Rap It Up|
Pops: What is this place, this magical field? It's wide and it's open, nothing's concealed. It's scenic and peaceful for us to enjoy, why this is the park, good show old boy. A place of great beauty for plenty to use, it inspires us all so go spread the news, to man, woman, child or begging cowboy, this is the park, good show old boy. The key to this place puts a smile on your face, it is the people that it does employ, why this is the park, good show old boy.
|Season 1 / Episode 10: - Don|
Benson: The park is being audited today. Pops tried to pay the taxes with lollipops. [all groan]
Pops: But I gave them more than enough.
Benson: Pops, we've been through this. You pay taxes with money, not lollipops.
