He is a forthright police officer who never lets Toyland's crooks (especially Sly and Gobbo, the two goblins) escape from the "long arm of the law". He always pretends to know the problem, but can never quite figure it out.
In later adaptations he is also known as P.C. Plod or Officer Plod.
The terms "Plod" and "PC Plod" have become slang terms - usually jocular or derogatory - for a policeman, or the police in general.
in the upcoming movie, he is played by Robbie Coltrane
