"That's a dark bad place, if half the tales be true."
― Daddy Twofoot on the Old Forest[1]

Daddy Twofoot was a Hobbit of the Shire in the late Third Age.

History

Daddy Twofoot lived in a hole on Bagshot Row in Bywater, right next door to Hamfast Gamgee and his family. He was a regular at the Ivy Bush Inn, where he was one particular evening in Third Age 3001, when Hamfast Gamgee entertained his fellow patrons with his knowledge of Bag End and "Mad Baggins". During the conversation, Daddy showed some disdain for Bucklanders, considering them peculiar strangers.[1]

Portrayal in adaptations

1981: BBC Radio's The Lord of the Rings:

Daddy Twofoot is voiced by Leonard Fenton. He is present in the Ivy Bush before Bilbo's Birthday Party.[2]

2001: Peter Jackson's The Fellowship of the Ring:

Daddy Twofoot's place at the conversation (which is moved to the Green Dragon) is taken over by Sam.[3] A Decipher Card of Daddy Twofoot identifies him as one of the Hobbits seen in the preceding scene, Concerning Hobbits.[4]

2002: Vivendi's The Fellowship of the Ring:

Daddy Twofoot lives at Number Two, Bagshot Row, and can be seen sitting outside the Green Dragon. No actor is specified for the part.[5]
