Pop hanging out with Lumpy and Disco Bear

This article focuses on the interactions between Pop and every other main character he has interacted with so far.

Overview

Considering the time he spends with Cub as a father figure, Pop rarely interacts with other characters, sometimes whenever he does, he needed help from others. In fact, the only prime example of Pop getting along with characters other than Cub is in A Vicious Cycle. He also often gets annoyed by the other characters due to his low patience and his sole care for Cub, showing a grumpy or annoyed attitude towards others and often couldn't care less about the misfortunes of other characters (Lumpy is an exception), despite this, he does show friendship to few of the characters, examples like Lumpy and Disco Bear.

Relationships

Cuddles

Pop hits Cuddles.

The closest they have come to an interaction would be in And the Kitchen Sink, where Pop accidentally runs into Cuddles with his car.

Giggles

The only time Pop has interacted with Giggles is in Every Litter Bit Hurts, where he is hired by Giggles to remove trash from the lake. He and Cub also sat behind Giggles in Wingin' It, Pop doing nothing as his son annoys Giggles by playing with his toy plane.

Toothy

Pop seems to be in good terms with Toothy. His main interaction with him occurred in Read 'em and Weep, where Pop and Cub attended Toothy's yard sale and bought one of his books. Also as Pop as Cub went to Toothy's act in Class Act and then they enjoyed Toothy's singing.

Lumpy

Main article: Lumpy-Pop-Cub Relationship

Before their friendship in A Vicious Cycle, they have only had very minor (but very recurring) interactions with each other as seen in Doggone It, Read 'em and Weep and As You Wish. However, unlike Pop's other interactions, these interactions seems to be almost always positive.

Petunia

Their closest interaction with each other is in Read 'em and Weep, in which Petunia attempts to sell cookies to Pop before she gets attacked by The Demon. They're also seen holding hands in Class Act.

Handy

Handy and Pop appear neutral in terms of each other. In A Hole Lotta Love, where Pop failed to understand Handy's directions, the latter was angrily annoyed. However, Pop hires Handy as Cub's babysitter in A Handy Nanny.

Nutty

In A Sucker for Love Part 1, Pop stared speechlessly at a crazed Nutty. After the squirrel had taken Cub's lollipop, Pop was ready to grab it back from Nutty's clutches. Note that in this episode, Pop was acting aggressively towards Nutty despite his calm nature. It's likely that, after this episode, Pop began to dislike Nutty.

Sniffles

Main article: Pop-Sniffles Relationship

Their only main interaction is in A Hole Lotta Love, where Pop grabs Sniffles by the chest and shakes him demanding for Sniffles to help save his son. He later pressures Sniffles while he is working and starts a fight with him over who should drive the drill machine (in Pop's defense, these acts could have been done out of stress rather than hate, as Pop was evidently disgusted at Sniffles' death). Furthermore, Pop never seems to care about Sniffles deaths whenever he sees them, in Who's to Flame?, he kicked one of him limbs in disgust, in Something Fishy, he cheered for his death instead of caring for his death, lastly in A Hole Lotta Love, he became disgusted at Sniffles' death, it seems to show that he is relieved that Sniffles died. On a positive note, they work together to clean the environment in Every Litter Bit Hurts.

Cub

Main article: Pop-Cub Relationship

Being father and son, Pop and Cub clearly love each other like a family should, and they're always seen together when they both appear in the same episode, seen having a relationship with each other.

Flaky

Flaky almost hit by Pop's car.

Just like Cuddles, the closest thing of an interaction between the two would be And the Kitchen Sink. Flaky nearly gets run over by Pop while she was trying to cross the road, but ends up getting herself killed by him and Cub nonetheless.

The Mole

Pop and The Mole act very neutral with each other. Pop gets help from The Mole to help rescue Cub in A Hole Lotta Love and later asks him for help again in A Sucker for Love Part 2. He is also sitting and watching the play with The Mole in Something Fishy, they even work together as cleaning crew members in Every Litter Bit Hurts.

Disco Bear

Pop was disturbed seeing a nearly nude Disco Bear in Sea What I Found. The two characters got along and became friends in A Vicious Cycle.

Mime

Pop seems to dislike Mime (At least as an restaurant employee).

So far, they have never interacted face to face. However, Pop most likely dislikes Mime because of the events he caused in Mime to Five, however, he can be eyeing Mime with a sad impression in As You Wish, he even unintentionally killed Mime in A Hole Lotta Love.

Russell

Even though Pop and Russell never interacted, Pop is seen watching Russell's play in Something Fishy. He also tries to order food from his drive-thru in Mime to Five.

Lifty and Shifty

Pop is most likely enemies with the duo. He has never actually witnessed a robbery from Lifty and Shifty. He did, however, see Lifty run his son over with a truck in As You Wish. Pop was also curious as to why Lifty and Shifty were running in Gems the Breaks. He also saw them walking on the road and tried to avoid them in And the Kitchen Sink.

Flippy/Fliqpy

Pop most likely sees Fliqpy as an enemy. Unlike Cub. He saw Fliqpy die in A Vicious Cycle and rewarded the cops for their work by inviting them into his house. And they celebrated Fliqpy's Death with nachos and beer.

Cro-Marmot

Pop buys ice cream from Cro-Marmot.

In Water Way to Go, Pop goes to buy ice cream from Cro-Marmot's truck as a snack for Cub. He does the same thing later in Milk Pong.

Splendid

Just like The Mole, Pop is not fond of Splendid, it is hinted in From Hero to Eternity, where Pop is clearly annoyed by Splendid for repeatedly entering and leaving the laundromat and for blowing his newspaper around with his flight, but Pop can be seen eyeing Splendid when he simply walks into the laundromat for the first time.

However, he didn't seem to mind Splendid interviewing him in See What Develops; though he most likely didn't recognize him in his disguise. He even takes Cub to hear Splendid's speech in Wrath of Con, despite not being fond of Splendid himself.

Truffles

Pop may be friends with Truffles because in Clause for Concern, Truffles went to get a present from Pop.
