Biography and PersonalityEdit

Unlike Chief Grizzly, Flippers is more patient and friendly with Red and others.


In Hoodwinked!, Flippers comes into Granny Puckett's cottage and Timmy, Tommy, and Glenn and Officer Bill Stork greet him, and Flippers tells Bill Stork that he's just stopping by to have a sarsaparilla. Chief Grizzly asks Flippers what he's doing in Granny's house and that this is his case. Flipper says that "somebody hibernated on the wrong side of the cave" and asks Red, Granny, Wolf, and the Woodsman about the events leading up to the incident in which the wolf tricked Red into believing he was her grandmother and then the Woodsman smashed through the window and scared Red, Wolf, and Granny (who was tied up in her closet).

After Red, Granny, Wolf, and Kirk tell their stories about what happened, Flippers recognizes that the only commonality to these events was Boingo the Bunny and deduces he is the Goody Bandit.

At the film's climax, Flippers arrives and tells Red, Granny, Wolf, and Twitchy that Kirk (who had left and finally fulfilled his dream to travel the world with the Happy Yodelers) is a member of the Happily Ever After Agency and enlists the four to start the private agency with him, to which they all accept.

  • Flippers is said to be a spoof of Nick Charles from The Thin Man or Hercule Poirot. As well, Flippers' wire fox terrier is the same breed as Asta, Nick Charles' dog.
  • In his mid 20s, Flippers used to be a famous dancer at a disco club, thus earning his nickname "Flippers" (which is exactly the same as his surname).
  • Flippers is similar to Sir topham hatt from Thomas and friends
