Uncle of Henry and Min. A very old pensioner (Henry often asks, "What are you doing out of your grave?") who usually jabbers incoherently but soon collapses. When he is coherent, he can be heard enquiring as to the whereabouts of his teeth, or (as in "The Call Of The West"), he loses them - Henry remarks, "There go his teeth, Min - more dinner for us!" In "The £50 Cure", he is the first to be turned into a chicken after drinking Minnie's laundry soup.
