Character Bio

Pop Larkin photo
Sidney Charles "Pop" Larkin, the eccentric and loving father. He has no regular employment but several projects and a succession of jobs provide income for the family. His money-making schemes are often a side plot in the episodes. Despite Pop's irregular income, the family does not lack money - among other things, they are able to afford holidays abroad, a swimming pool and boarding school for the twins. He is proud of his large family and involved in his children's lives. While Pop adores Ma, he is also close to other women, and never holds back from flirting and kissing. Ma is aware of this and doesn't appear to mind.
