Mr. Maellard (first name unknown) is a recurring character as well as a supporting character of Regular Show. He was the owner of The Park until the series finale, Benson's boss, the adoptive father of Pops, and husband of Mrs. Maellard. He has an office on the third story of the House where he is seldom seen. He made his first appearance in the Season Two Episode "Dizzy" and was voiced by the late David Ogden Stiers. He died sometime between Pops' death and the Park's 25-Year Reunion.
Mr. Maellard is also a Lollipop from Lolliland, just like his adopted son, Pops. He appears as a squat man with a wrinkled and warped round head, as well as greenish skin (his head slightly resembles the moon). He normally wears a black suit with a dark green scarf and uses a gold-tipped cane to walk with. He also has a brown pipe that is always in his mouth. He tends to be in a bad mood the majority of the time.
Maellard seems to be pretty strict. Most of the time he always yells and gets mad at Benson, much like how Benson always yells and gets mad at Mordecai and Rigby. He is shown to be a very greedy businessman who cares little to none about his employees. This is evident with his treatment toward Benson, as in Season 2 when he didn't even call Benson by his name and referred to him as Beanhead, Ball bucket, and Benton. It is only after the end of the episode Benson Be Gone that he calls him Benson and gives him some appreciation. He almost always blames Benson for the problems that occur in the park even though it is due to the actions of Mordecai and Rigby, under the logic that since he's in charge it's his responsibility. He is also quite eccentric, as evident in episodes like "Maellard's Package" where he claims a very important package needs to be picked up, which turns out to be a Bánh mì (which could have been easily picked up from a vendor). However, Maellard does show a degree of care and affection towards Pops and does whatever he can to help him in certain situations for his son's growth.
Maellard is very impatient towards Benson (similar to Benson's impatience towards Mordecai and Rigby) and Maellard blames Mordecai and Rigby's shenanigans on Benson (as he expects Benson to take responsibility for Mordecai and Rigby as park manager). He purposely mistakes Benson's name a lot in some of the episodes in which he appears (using "Ballbucket", "Beanbag", etc.). Maellard finally got Benson's name right (and started to respect him more as well) in the episode "Benson Be Gone" due to Benson's coming to his rescue when he was captured by Susan (a woman whom Mr. Maellard had hired as the park manager after demoting Benson and is later revealed to be a demon) and also gave Benson his old job back.
In "The Ice Tape", Pops and the gang find out that Mr. Maellard is not his real father but Mr. Maellard found him as a baby and adopted him during an expedition, and kept him safe until the time was right for Pops to fulfill his destiny but Mr. Maellard tells Pops that no matter what he always thought of him as his real son. In the series finale, when the park gang returns from space after a three-year absence, Mordecai notices Mr. Maellard staring up at the sky, shedding a tear for his son.

Mr. Maellard-Themed Content
- His name appears to be a reference to the Maillard Reaction, a process important to the creation of hard candies such as himself.
- Mr. Maellard used to mispronounce Benson's name as Bean can, Bert, Beanbag, Ball Bucket, Benton, Bean Teen, and Beanson (both in Dizzy and Benson Be Gone).
- Mr. Maellard is the second family member to appear at the park; the first was Don, Rigby's younger brother.
- He appeared in a few seasons three episodes, one of which was Skips vs. Technology (in a flashback). Another was Think Positive.
- Mr. Maellard's first name was never revealed.
- He had a wife, who may have died, moved far away from the park, or is divorced with him, due to her never appearing in the present time.
- He is mentioned in Think Positive, as he puts his son, Pops, in charge of The Park when he's not around.
- It was revealed that Mr. Maellard's yelling is worse than Benson's (in Busted Cart). In other words, Mr. Maellard yells more than Benson.

- Mr. Maellard is the second-oldest character in the park next to Skips.
- When Mr. Maellard was at a younger age, he was light pink like Pops. At his current age, however, he is light green instead of light pink. Although it was revealed in The Ice Tape that Pops is Mr. Maellard's adoptive son, Mr. Maellard himself could be from Lolliland but isn't actuated to Pops. It could also be possible that Mr. Maellard's parents immigrated from Lolliland and that he was born on Earth, therefore possibly explaining why he was light pink at a younger age.
- Mr. Maellard is at least 153 years old, and when he married his wife, he could have been at least 20 years old.
- He could have been born sometime in 1859.
- It is mentioned by Skips in "Limousine Lunchtime" that Mr. Maellard loves his Limousine almost more than he loves Pops. Although, this may be just an exaggeration by Skips.
- Despite his harshness, he does seem to have a genuine love for his son, which shows that he isn't always a mean person.
- When the park launched into space, he sheds a tear most likely for his son Pops.
- When the park returns from space, he is seen crying after finding out the news about his son's death. He is also seen devastated during Pops' memorial service.
- It was revealed by Benson in Take the Cake that Mr. Maellard does not get surprised very easily.
- Mr. Maellard also admits that he has always wanted to be in a coma by the end of the episode.
- In the '' Ice Tape '', it is revealed that most of his wealth came from selling meteor fragments in the past. It is also shown that he spoke like a stereotype gangster in his youth.
- He does not appear in Exit 9B.
- Since his death in the final episode, it is likely that his mansion is now owned by Benson.
