Flapjack is the titular main protagonist of the TV show, The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack. He is an enthusiastic young boy from Stormalong Harbor who dreams of becoming a great adventurer. He hopes that with the help of his best friend Captain K'nuckles his dream will come true, despite being oblivious to K'nuckles' incompetence. Flapjack makes squeaking sounds when he walks. He's known for having an angelic singing voice and he enjoys to sing.
He is voiced by series creator Thurop Van Orman.
He is strange, lively, cute and funny. Flapjack is very naïve and oblivious to danger, thus he is easily caught up in perilous situations. He holds K'nuckles in extremely high regard, with his affection for the captain sometimes bordering on obsession. K'nuckles tends to teach him bad habits, causing Flapjack to be rude at times. Unfortunately he usually has difficulty when mixing with other children which are his age because they find him very strange.
Flapjack is a little boy wearing a sailor outfit. He has tan skin, bright blue (sometimes black) eyes, a sweet smile on his face and curly blonde hair. He has four teeth, with two teeth at the top of his mouth and the other two at the bottom of his mouth. He is 3'1".
Somewhere in between the years of 1998-2003, he was found and raised by Bubbie, a talking whale. Later in life, they encountered an crusty old pirate named K'nuckles, who is searching for Candied Island. Once hearing about this place and meeting K'nuckles, Flapjack wishes to find this island and live there with Bubbie and K'nuckles. Meanwhile all residing on Stormalong harbor.
In the series finale, he, K'nuckles, and Bubbie all eat a type of candy that turns them into live actors. With every resident in Stormalong now thinking Flapjack, K'nuckles, and presumably Bubbie are freaks, the trio continue their adventures in their new states.
