Hopediah "Hop Pop" Plantar is the tetragonist of Amphibia. He is the traditional and over-protective grandfather of Sprig Plantar and Polly Plantar.

Appearance

Hop Pop is an elderly anthropomorphic frog of small stature. He has mostly reddish-orange skin with a light orange chin and chest.

His casual frog-like body structure consists of slightly reddish-orange eyes with black pupils, a dark green tongue, four short limbs with four-fingered hands, and two-toed feet and white tufts of hair coming out of the sides of his head.

As his everyday clothing, he wears a grayish-green waistcoat with a buttoned yellow shirt and a light blue ascot and grayish-brown trousers with light brown socks that slightly cover his feet.

Personality

Hop Pop is described as a traditional and over-protective of his grandchildren. He also tends to have a high sense of paranoia whenever he feels something is, or something is bound to go chaotically wrong. As seen in cases such as "Best Fronds", when he woke up from his nap in his study, he feared that Anne might've eaten Sprig, Polly, and practically the entire town.

He also seems to mistrust the other Amphibians, saying that they are small-minded and paranoid, an ironic statement since he seems to be like that as well. He is also shown to be very dishonest.

Behind the Scenes

Name and Basis
