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.
Mordecai, Rigby: [as Pops as about to sacrifice himself] POPS, DON'T!
Pops: [telepathically, smiles] Don't worry Mordecai and Rigby. I now you're sad, but I promise, this is a happy ending. Take care of each other. Goodbye.
Anti-Pops: [now feeling remorse] My God, all those one star reviews - I wish I could take it all back.
Pops: You can try. You and I together, brother.
Mordecai: [tearfully] Guess this is it. If anyone's listening, I wanna come back as a dolphin.
Rigby: [tearfully] Oh, good one. Me too. No wait, an eagle! No, a pterodactyl with a really big...
Rigby: [while having a reunion party] Man, I can't believe it's been 25 years.
Mordecai: [sadly] Yeah, I wish Pops could've been here to see this.
Rigby: Well, if it wasn't for him, we wouldn't have this.
Mordecai: Yeah. Hey, do you think those old video games are still in the shed?
Rigby: Yeah, we should check it out, for old cart's sake.
Mordecai, Rigby: Hmm! Hmm! Hmm! Hmm! Hmm! WHOOOOAAAA! Heh, heh, heh, heh.
Mordecai: I can't believe we used to do that.
Pops: [sighs] Jolly good show!
