He's the kind head toymaker, chief of police and mayor of Toyland. His employees are inventive Grumio and the talking trees in The Forest of No Return. After Mary Contrary, Tom Piper, and the children were arrested by the trees, they were sent to him and because of a problem volunteered to help him the Christmas deadline. Then Barnaby had him be the preacher for his wedding to Mary. He begged Gonzorgo and Roderigo not to let Barnaby get away with it and he's now friends with them.
