In Japan, Papa is voiced by Naoya Nosaka. In English he is voiced by Lucas Schuneman.
Papa was born in 1968. Papa is 38 years old.
Papa is a very loving husband/father to his family. Other then camping and bonding with the family, his interest tend to differ then Mama's. But this could mostly be due to the fact he is a business man and works out of the home, so he doesn't have the time to do as much as Mama does throughout the day.
While he and Mama have a very loving relationship, he often winds up as the butt of Mama's jokes or accidents. So as a result he hesitates when she asks him to help her sometimes when they're not having a competition with one another.
Not much is known about Papa otherwise, though he seems to exhibit the same speaking skills that Mama has, in which he speaks using "English".
He adores eating.
Papa is a fair-skinned adult male with brown hair, almost the same color and bangs shape of Mama's. He's the only family member to wear a pair of glasses, his being oval shaped. While normally Papa can be depicted in a dark blue work suit with his suitcase, his casual attire is a white shirt worn under a pale green jacket/shirt, tan-khaki pants, and light brown shoes. He is also the only family member who has a nose.
For camping, Papa wears his normal attire but with shorter pants, visible white socks, and a camping hat. His jacket-shirt now a camping vest with brown at the shoulders.
