Roberta "Bobbie" Wickham is a recurring fictional character in the Jeeves and Mr Mulliner stories of British comic writer P. G. Wodehouse, being a troublesome redheaded girl, enamoured of practical jokes which often result in general pandemonium.

Overview[edit]

Bobbie Wickham is the daughter of Lady Wickham and the late Sir Cuthbert of Skeldings Hall, Herts. She is also the first cousin, once removed, of Mr. Mulliner, Lady Wickham being his cousin.

On more than one occasion Bertie Wooster becomes enamoured of her, and his valet Jeeves, realising that she might be a little too independent and wild for Bertie to tame her, has had to get him out of the daft scrape she has connived him into being a part of.

In "Jeeves and the Yule-tide Spirit" (1927), the most notable of these schemes was the affair with Tuppy Glossop's pierced hot water bottles in her parents' house.

In "Jeeves and the Kid Clementina" (1930), she also used her womanly charms to get Bertie take her and her kid cousin, Clementina, to dinner, and also to get him to drive Clementina back to school, where he was caught by a policeman while sitting in a tree on the school property.
